There are a lot of reasons that I like going to a woman’s club convention, but I am going to tell you one of my favorites. I get to dress up. Pure and simple, I like getting to dress up. Not dress up like going to work or church, but dress up like I am going out on a date. That is not something Joe and I do often, and when we do, Grundy does not offer a lot of dressing up opportunities.When you are at a woman’s club convention, you go to a “fancy” dinner every night. That means that I get to play dress-up. It is just like when I was a young girl, I get to wear a dress, put on plenty of makeup, strap on lots of jewelry, and strut around in high heels. However, the one constant that I can depend on at these functions is that it will be cold as a freezer during the dinners.
I was contacted by Erin at the Purple Poppy in Cape Cod, a store that has been in business for over 25 years. She thought I might like to style a wrap from her shop. I knew I would be attending the woman’s club convention, and I thought a wrap would be perfect for those cold dinners. When I visited her shop, I had to pick my mouth up off my chest. They have such elegant and refined items, I thought for sure she must have emailed the wrong blogger. Lol!
I decided to quickly pick my wrap before she could figure out she might have emailed me by mistake. I knew the minute I laid my eyes on The Claudia Nicole Cashmere Dress Topper that was the one. I fell in love with the look, the color, and when it said cashmere; I said sign me up. Haha
I chose to wear a dress I have worn before, it is by Ann Taylor. I knew the color of the wrap would match one of the flowers in the dress. The dress is nice, and when I wore it with the linen jacket, it looked very professional and pretty. But, when I put the cashmere warp on with the dress, it went straight to ELEGANT!
I was nice and warm the entire dinner, which is not something many of the women in the room could say. Several of them came up to me, just to feel of the wrap. You can tell, just by looking at it, how nice it is. I know the wrap is a little higher priced than a lot of my items, but it IS cashmere, and it is less expensive than most of my purses. I do believe there are some items worth splurging on. ALSO, if you enter in the code POPPY, you will receive 10% off your order!!!I have no idea what is sticking out of my purse, it would have been nice if I had zipped it before taking my pictures. I was in a hurry, still trying to take my photos without anyone noticing what I was doing.
I like the Miche bag, but they are no longer in business. With this purse, the outer shell is magnetic and will just peel off, then you throw on another one. Go to Ebay if you are interested in their bags and shells. The Sole Society Gladiator shoes even look cute with a “dressy” outfit. I could have worn a pair of cream platform high heels, but I wanted the “edgy” look.
If you like to have at least one garment that you can put on and it make you feel like a “star”, then be sure to check out this cashmere wrap. If you want to pick out several nice quality items, then be sure to visit the Purple Poppy, and tell Erin I said hi. Don’t forget to use the code, POPPY, for a 10% discount.
I’m sure she meant to pick me, because we all know that the one thing I am is “Elegant!”
