6 tips on how to become a role model.

It's a nice feeling to be significant. Everyone likes to be important to others. So how do we achieve that?  These are some of the traits you need:

  1. Demonstrate confidence and selfrespect.
    Don't forget, you are the most important person in your world. that doesn't mean that you should be arrogant. No, but you should treat yourself with love and respect, only then you can treat others accordenly.
  2. Be unique, not perfect.
    Just embrace the exclusive being that you are. Noone asks for perfection, on the contrary. Perfect people make others feel like a failure. You need to bring out the best in others and they will love you for that.
  3. Listening to others is as important as talking to them.By listening you make them feel important to you. Let them talk first and at the end, if you make a remark or give them your opinion. It will be heard.
  4. Show respect and concern for others.Even if you're a very succesful business women, you should not feel better then others or take them for granted. Everyone has their value.
  5. Always have an open mind and be willing to learn new things.
    Maybe you have done your whole life things a certain way. Still, taking on the task a little differently might give you a better result.
  6. Don't be affraid to admit a mistake. This is very important( and one I don't easy do, sadly), admitting making mistakes makes you human. People can connect to that feeling.

10 winterpieces that can't be missed in your retro wardrobe

In wintertime it's always a challenge knowing what to wear. 
Here are a few tips from Miss Poppy:

  1. An animal print coat( fake fur). Animal prints are perfect to give you that warm fuzzy feeling in wintertime. Just don't overdo it. One garment with animal print is enough.
  2. The cardigan, this is a great basic piece to put on or off acording to the temperature. They are ideal for when your college wants to open a window, while it's almost freezing outside.
  3. The duffelcoat, this coat was made for the Britisch expedition to the Artic. So that sais it all, it's made for winter.
  4. A dressing gown, yes this is for indoors. In the evening you want to feel warm and luxurious. A dressing gown is ideal for that. We sell a stunning one at Misspoppywear
  5. A camelcoat, nothing screems more style and elegance then a camelcoat. Marilyn Monroe wore one, Jackie Kennedy, and Audrey hepburn all were fan of this simple garment.
  6. Tartan, winter and tartan go hand in hand. If a tartan dress is to much for you, then start of with a tartan skirt. We sell some great tartan items in the shop.
  7. Fair Isle sweater, you know, with the nice pattern with multiple colours. This is a great sweater to wear, even on Holidays.
  8. A beret, if you have them in different colours you can pretty much wear them with any outfit.
  9. A turtleneck, not anyone is a fan of this jumper, but Audrey Hepburn was a hudge lover. Make sure you wear him, if your certain not to get to warm, otherwise a cardigan is a better choice.
  10. Tights, what a lifesaver they are, and they come in many colours and prints.Just make sure that they are in impeccable condition.

Hope I helped you a bit with this list.
Stay warm!
