Giveaway - Sweater Clips from Poppy Chic Designs

My style icons have always been television characters. Before Joan and Betty, there were two very important characters whose retro style I couldn't resist.

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
"This fabulous leopard sweater clip is inspired by the 1950's style that Emma Pillsbury is bringing back! These gorgeous handmade leopard flowers with tulle layers have a vintage rhinestone center and will add a pop of fabulous style to any cardigan this season. The sparkling silver chain measure 6 inches from clip to clip and catches the light with amazing shimmer. Now you can rock the retro cardi clips just like Emma!"

How to Enter
1. Visit Taryn's shop, Poppy Chic Designs. (Buy something if you can!) Leave a comment here, telling us your favorite item in her shop. J'adore the leopard shoe clips. Immensely.
2. Be sure to include your email address so I can contact you if you win!
3. Entries will be accepted until Sunday, November 21 at 6PM EST.

Yay, Taryn, Taryn, hooray!

My favorite are the items with the Funky Flowers theme, but I think that Laverne & Shirley would LOVE the retro bowling themed items! The flasks would make great gifts for some of my girlfriends.

I love so many items but, if I had to chose just one.. it would have to be the Cocktail Rings. I am a HUGE ring person and with so many colors to choose from, I could have a new ring to match every outfit!

Hard to decide!

I have a big love for sweater clips - so my favourite has to be the poppy sweater guard. But the ruffle necklace is also very cute. And those flasks make you want to start drinking!

The cocktail chic cherries flask is amazing. No need to look less than impeccable and adorable while imbibing.

I just love the idea of drinking whiskey from a flask adored with very feminine cherries.

I went straight to the Etsy shop and fell in LOVE with the Glam Sweater Clip. Decided I would think about them as a Christmas gift to myself. Then, I returned to your site, scrolled down and viola! You are giving them away!!!!! So now, I'm entering and hoping I'm picked.

Thanks!

I'm actually really liking the flower stud earrings! Don't have anything like that and sweetly simple is sometimes just the ticket.

I love the glam rock earring in leopard. I want to win the sweater clips so I can wear the two together. So fabulous! I hope I win. I've been wanting sweater clips to teach in!

Thanks,

I love the pin up girl poppy hair pin for me but the boyfriend flask with the bowling balls would be perfect for my husband! We have a bowling alley that we frequent that is dry, so he always packs a drink to take with him. This flask would be much classier than a plastic water bottle a la freshman year of college!
