PRODUCT REVIEW: POSH POPPET CARDIGAN – VERY PACKABLE; IDEAL FOR TRAVEL I was introduced to the Posh Poppet cardigan jacket when I attended the Chicago Travel and Adventure Show in February 2015. It was there that I saw and fell in love with the Posh Poppet, a wrinkle free black jacket that has a dressy look and the feel of a feminine tuxedo. It features a longer back, shorter soft lapel front and ruching on the long sleeves. (The photo of me in my Posh jacket was taken in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico.) What makes this jacket really great for travel is its ability to be packed into its “pocket” or pouch (which is also water repellent). As the company literature says, “When you no longer need to wear your Poppet, it easily folds away and ‘pops’ back into its pocket, seals with Velcro and features a wristlet for easy carrying, making it the perfect addition to your travel outfit.” Even after it has been in its pocket for long periods of time, it has only slight wrinkles that fall out quickly. 

When the Posh Poppet cardigan jacket is worn, the pocket is concealed in the back of the jacket and is undetectable when worn. Small essentials (lipstick, credit card, cell phone, business cards, etc.) can be stashed in the pocket, so you may not need to carry a purse. I wore my black Posh jacket on a recent trip to Puerto Vallarta, Mexico, both on the plane and during the trip on two evenings. I loved its look and feel and received several compliments on it. It is now...

Island Vacations: European Island Adventures

With vacation season approaching, why not choose to travel to one of these European Islands. What better way to slow down and unwind than the island life? History, culture, adventure, and gracious living meet on the beaches of the Mediterranean Sea. Ibiza, Spain: Just off the coast of Spain lies Ibiza, a cosmopolitan island strategically located between Spain and Africa. Centuries of colonization created architecture and culture that is still celebrated today. In the 20th century, Ibiza has attracted the avant-garde, alternative lifestyle communities of intellectualism and the arts, making the small island truly unique in the world. After a stunning day on the beach, enjoy the exciting nightlife, as the cultured citizens and guests fill the many nightclubs and the island’s two casinos. Ibiza Sardinia, Italy: A little further to the east lies Sardinia, Italy’s emerald island where great swathes of Sardinia’s central mountains are untouched by man. Monuments 4,000 years old still stand at one of the UNESCO World Heritage sites. Almost every week from May through October, there’s a Sardinian festival celebrating something wonderful. Cagliari Sardinia Italy - May 1 2014: Launeddas players with traditional Sardinian costumes during the Festival of Saint Efisio. Malta: Between Tripoli, Libya and the island of Sicily lies Malta, an independent nation, only recently relieved of English rule (1964). Its history dates back as far as mankind, and the architecture reflects a long and rich history. Almost every ancient civilization as far back as the Phoenicians left their mark on the island. So did the Arabs, who introduced citrus fruits and irrigation. These days, Malta uses the Euro and is host to numerous international festivals,...

Poppet Tips | Day – Night

It is always nice to dress up and look good when going out for the evening. However, sometimes having to work late means not having the time to freshen up and change. Being prepared with a few handy tips can help you change your day to night attire effortlessly. Tips: Take along the Poppet The Poppet is one of the best inventions in fashion. This versatile accessory is a gorgeous cardigan that can actually be folded into it’s own attached pocket. The Poppets are made using high-quality fabrics, and any wrinkle that may appear in the Classic or Lotus Poppets will quickly drop out after you’ve worn it a few minutes. If an entirely wrinkle-free fabric is your thing, then our latest design the Posh Poppet is for you! The Poppet is an excellent way to change your look from day to night, adding a touch of elegance to your ensemble. While folded, the Poppet acts as a small purse in which you can carry your phone, credit cards and some makeup; perfect items for a night out. Therefore, by carrying the Poppet as a purse to work, you’ll have your necessities without carrying a heavy purse that you’ll later have to carry around the whole night.
