A few months ago I had the pleasure of helping out as a stylist on the photo-shoot for the new Wagons album. I took along some of Poppets finest wares and assisted in making sure everyone looked super sexy......and look how sexy they all are!!

Wagons 'rumble, shake and tumble' is out now...it's super rad...go buy it.

Sayonara Stox!

One of my bestest buddies moved away....SAD FACE!
So I made her these bunnies so she will always have a little piece of Poppet with her.
I'll miss you stox....lots and lots!

Now that's all a bit sad....but the story of how we met is quite delightful:

Cast your mind back to 2008.... the 31st of May to be exact....
It was a day of hustle and bustle in the shop and everyone was happy and full of good cheer, but none more so than a charming lady by the name of Amy. She had come in to look for a dress for a swing dancing party...and we found her a beautiful 70's does the 40's pink frock...and she looked killer in it....but it needed a little something....so i raced upstairs and got my favourite frilly petticoat for her to borrow...now...i normally don't lend clothes from my private collection to people i don't know...but there was just something special about her and i knew it would complete the outfit perfectly.
So transaction finished, she left the shop and I couldn't help saying to my buddy..."now see!! that's the kinda person i want as my friend!!" She was fun and sweet and hilarious and also not a thief coz she bought back my petticoat the next week (with delicious thank you chocolates as well) and we've been best buds ever since.....YAY.....love you stox!

Is there someone who you love and you wanna get the message across loud and clear??
might i suggest a set of customised name bunnies! they are all the rage :)

Summer Reading!

OH OH... the secret is out.....I love 80's teen romance novels!
They are so innocent (ooooh vicky and scott were totally holding hands....ohhhh)
and the covers just kill me. Just look at some of these outfits :)

it's the font of popularity summer that i like the best....the girl looks like a goody goody
my first summer love is this ensemble....tres resort....and she digs the white jeans just like meeee.
oh summer breezes....naturally the best way to offset that killer hat is to accessories with a coil of rope...genius!

i love how shifty eyed and creepy the guy in love times two is.
ten-boy summer sounds like a great plan huh? as is a jaunty lavender sweater tied around the neck!! love it
summer dreams in a red and white stripe sweater...yes please!

and these ones are my favourites

hey good looking!! way to work that triple denim and hard hat combo.
this girl would have no trouble getting secret admirers...this outfit is dynamite!!
the love hunt....you are ridiculous....that is all

What fun....I have many many more in the shop....come have a look some time :)

I'm totally digging on my new white jeans (umm i'm not slipping into white trash bogan territory am i?! eep)
and this top is a summer favourite.....navy, white and red...you really can't beat it.
