Poppy Barley Weekly 46

4-minute read

Poppy Barley Weekly 45 It's feeling like summer! Although I'm preparing for a week-long staycation (is it weird to ask your co-workers out for post-work beers to celebrate that you're on holiday?), there's so much happening at Poppy Barley this week that it feels like a bit of a stolen getaway. Plus, we missed an update last week because of the Easter weekend. So, here's what's up:
  • It's Day 2 of our #SIMONSxPOPPYBARLEY partnership tomorrow (our biggest partnership yet). We'll be in the CONTEMPORAINE department at Simons, West Edmonton Mall from 10am to 6pm taking measuring appointments. Our full collection offering is on display, including Snakeskin and Men's. Drop in, or book your appointment here.
  • Speaking of Snakeskin, we sold out of the Snakeskin Slip-on Oxford and The Chelsea Boot in Snakeskin and Black this week. BUT, because we've had a ton of e-mails about them since, we've re-allocated our leather and added a few more to the shop. Don't miss it this time.
  • We're hosting Ontario jewellery label bluboho at our showroom (#200, 10822 - 82 Ave.) next Wednesday, April 15, from 6 to 9pm! They have the most beautiful, delicate pieces that we can't wait to get our hands on. Find out more about them in this Q&A with Audrey, who was the key to building our partnership with the brand.
  • Speaking of brand, come out to our PB Hangout with brand at the end of the month, a one day workshop for entrepreneurs and small business owners to create a business plan, define your brand, master social media tools and practice photo styling.
  • Poppy Barley is hiring! We're looking for a Showroom Associate to work at our Edmonton showroom and popup shops across Canada. Details and deadline (Monday) here.
  • Our friends at Glow Juicery open a new location (7911 - 104 St.) tomorrow featuring juices and raw food.
  • Congrats Edmonton-based Showbie! With $2.3M in the bank, Showbie wants to make classrooms paperless.
  • We're previewing our Summer Limited Edition Collection over at Ania B. for the full month of April. Get first access to the collection by becoming a PB Insider. We've also got a really cool contest going on for our subscribers, so now would be the time to get PB in your inbox!
Poppy Barley Summer 2015 Collection - Flats Poppy Barley in the news:
  • Justine was interviewed by Ryan Jespersen on 630CHED in a series called "Really Cool Jobs". Listen here (she talks about having NFL cheerleaders as clients, how Kendall used to "smack her around" when they were little, and how she views Poppy Barley as an opportunity to use business for good).
  • Photos from our SIMONSxPOPPYBARLEY launch party last week are on the Edmonton Journal's Social Seen page. The Flannel Foxes (two awesome girls in Edmonton reinventing menswear looks for women) snapped a few photos, too!
PoppyBarley-Weekly-45-05 What we're reading: PB will see you tomorrow at Simons (and personally, I'll see you all in about 9 days)!

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.
