PERSONAL
A Quick Update




WITH ALL THE NEW ARRIVALS COMING TO NEW CLASSICS AND MY PARIS TRIP WITH COUP BOUTIQUE APPROACHING UNTHINKABLY FAST (ETA: 3 DAYS), IT'S BEEN HARD FOR ME TO FIND TIME TO SIT DOWN AND BREATHE. THERE'S GOING TO BE A LOT OF CRAZINESS GOIN' ON WITHIN THE NEXT FEW MONTHS, AND I CAN'T WAIT TO BE ABLE TO SHARE WHAT'S GOING ON IN MY BRAIN AS OF RIGHT NOW (BUT I CAN'T, BECAUSE ITS A SECRET). IN THE MEAN TIME, FEEL FREE TO KEEP IN TOUCH ON INSTAGRAM, BECAUSE WE ALL KNOW THAT THAT'S WHERE ALL THE REAL SHIT GOES DOWN.  ALSO, PLAY ME IN WORDS WITH FRIENDS @IMALYSSALAU (YOU BETTER NOT CHEAT). 

PHOTOSHOOT
Poppy Barley Limited Edition: Snakeskin

Alyssa Lau from the Ordinary People Style Blog wearing Poppy Barley shoes

ABOUT A WEEK AGO, I PHOTOGRAPHED MYSELF IN 5 PAIRS OF POPPY BARLEY LIMITED EDITION SNAKESKIN SHOES AROUND THE STUDIO. POPPY BARLEY'S LATEST COLLECTION WAS INSPIRED BY "POWERSHOUSE WOMEN WORKING IN THE BUSINESS OF FASHION AND DESIGN," SO I WAS EXTREMELY HONOURED (AND FLABBERGASTED) THAT THEY HAD APPROACHED ME ABOUT COLLABORATING WITH THEM ON THEIR NEWEST COLLECTION. ETHICALLY MADE BY THE FINEST EXPERT ARTISANS IN LEON, MEXICO, EDMONTON'S POPPY BARLEY HAS BECOME ONE OF THE MOST REPUTABLE CUSTOM-FOOTWEAR COMPANIES TO DATE. AND I COULDN'T HAVE BEEN MORE EXCITED TO SHOOT THEIR SHOES ALONGSIDE SOME NEW CLASSICS GARMENTS. CLICK BELOW TO VIEW THE REST OF THE PHOTOS!
