Laverne and Shirley.
They looked like they walked right off the pages of my mom's high school yearbook. Sandwiched between Happy Days and Three's Company in the Tuesday night lineup, Laverne & Shirley introduced me to the wonder of a great pencil skirt. And Michael McKean.
Every great style icon has a signature. Who doesn't remember Laverne's monogram, affixed to every sweater she owned? There's an Etsy shop that's filled with fabulous pieces that are sure to become your newest style signature.
Meet Taryn, the creative mind behind Poppy Chic Designs. As soon as I saw her retro-inspired work, I wanted to throw on my favorite sweater, adorn it with a pair of her clips, and head on down to the Pizza Bowl.
"Poppy Chic Designs is dedicated to bringing you fabulous retro inspired accessories that are super stylish, affordable and handmade with care! While working as a showgirl for Carnival Cruise Lines in the 1990s, Poppy Chic creator Taryn Sisco would also help out as a seamstress for the costumes and accessories. A decade later the former showgirl turned crafty mom decided to take her love of accessories to the next level and focused on starting her own line of girly goodies. Always inspired by vintage style pin-up girls, and the fabulous styles of the 1920s through 1950s, Taryn created Poppy Chic Designs - a line of boutique style flower hair accessories, cocktail goodies and unique jewelry with a retro flair."
Poppy Chic Designs offers everything from shoe clips to hair accessories to business card holders to "cocktail chic" creations, like this olive tie tack for men. Love.
Taryn has generously offered up a pair of her sweater clips to give away to a lucky WWEPWer!
Glam Sweater Clip
