Poppy Barley Weekly 50

2-minute read

Poppy Barley Weekly 50 It's been a big week: our home province of Alberta made political history; we had a freak May-blizzard in Edmonton (or maybe not-so-freak... this is Alberta, after all); it was Cinco de Mayo and, well, we love Mexico; and finally, this is our 50th Poppy Barley Weekly post (click the "Poppy Barley Weekly" category in the sidebar to see them all). Sounds like we need to celebrate. Oh, wait - we're going to the YEGGIES tomorrow night! We've been nominated for an Edmonton social media award in the "Best in Business" category and so the whole team is going for beers and merriment. Tune into our Instagram feeds (@PoppyBarley and @PoppyBarleyMen) to see if we take the prize! Here's what else is happening:
  • While Yvonne and Erika have been road-tripping it to Calgary (there with our full collections until 8pm tonight), it's been heads-down at the office prepping for all the in-person shopping events this month:
    • Oakville, ON – we’ll be at bluboho jewelry (293 Lakeshore Road East) mixing our new Summer Collection with bluboho’s gorgeous line of rings, necklaces, earrings and bracelets. Book here.
    • Toronto, ON – we’ll be at Brodawka and Friends (1114 Queen Street West), our official Toronto retailer, with our full collections on hand for two whole days. Book here.
    • Vancouver, BC – Details coming soon.
    • Edmonton, AB – our Whyte Avenue showroom is NOW OPEN on Saturdays! Drop in between 10am and 4pm tomorrow.
  • We spent 5 Minutes With James Neufeld, CEO of SAM (social assessment management) and you should too. Founded in Edmonton, his company streamlines social media for news outlets like the Associated Press, Reuters, The Wall Street Journal, Financial Times, The Guardian--and Poppy Barley! James owns the Calgary Wingtip in Grey. You should too.
An Instagram contest to get in on:
  • To us, luxury is a commitment to craftsmanship, thoughtful design, fair profits and human connection. And so, for our Summer Collection, we collaborated with Uppercase Press to create custom letterpress notecards + envelopes to help you rally your friends for patio drinks, a beach day, a road trip, or whatever summertime escape you seek. For every notecard posted on Instagram (including this photo!) tag the friends you'd send these to in the comments section (on Instagram) and you could win a set! There's five letterpress prizes in total. P.S. Make sure you follow @PoppyBarley and @UppercasePress so that we can contact you!

Now go and celebrate your mothers! Happy Mother's Day weekend!

Belt Measuring Guide

Belt Measuring Guide

A - High-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt around your natural waistline, wrap a measuring tape around the narrowest part of your midsection. Then, add 3” to determine your high-rise belt size.

B - Mid-rise style:

If you plan to wear your belt lower than your natural waistline, you will require a dierent size. If you have a particular pair of bottoms you intend to wear your belt with, wrap a measuring tape through the belt loops while in a relaxed position.

When wearing your belt in your preferred style, it should fasten in the middle hole. The belt will relax with wear allowing you to cinch it tighter, as needed.

If you plan to wear the belt in both the high and mid-rise styles, you have two options:

  1. Select your high-rise style and fasten it more loosely when worn in the mid-rise style.
  2. Select your mid-rise style and fasten it more tightly when worn in the high-rise style.
