Everywhere I go, it seems that this luscious color shines its fascinating light at me and I am drawn like a moth to the backporch bulb. I know in my mind that these Winter Berries are supposed to be red. They are not. They are the most opulent shade of Poppy. This year my new handbag was in supple, peppled leather all covered in delightful little pockets with zipper openings and the most delectable shade of Poppy. This started an avalanche of not only Poppy sightings and must have shoppings but how well Orchid goes with the saturated color of the opium flower. I am not ashamed to say I got it at an outlet store. Coach, of course, in Orlando. But, it is because I have never seen the color anywhere else. And what is in my in-box all Fall? Coach has come out with an entire line of Poppy! They are playfully mixing it with Orchid (genius fashion minds all think alike), and plaid. Ok, I will concede that there is such a thing as Purple Poppy, but it is a bit like saying Green Banana if you ask me.
Accessories…sigh, our favorite little indulgence. There remains a legion of Poppy little nothing, nothings to adorn your inner dress-up doll from Ralph Lauren, Tory Burch and Valentino.
This is not leaving out the most important of the Essentials (non accessory by definition) Shoes! Dior of Lady Dior ravishes us in croc pumps to die for. Ok, I think you are sufficently addicted to Poppy. Peace-Out!
