*NEW* Feature Friday - Cheeky Poppins 18th of October



New Feature Friday!
Featuring Cheeky Poppins

Horrraaaaaay It's Friday and hopefully you all have that Friday feeling! Of course It wouldn't be Friday without Feature Friday on UniqueLoveStyle, so without further a due here's this week's Feature, Cheeky Poppins!

I recall coming across this website and completely falling in love with the concept. There are many quirky ways to add glitz to any outfit, whether it's shoes a blazer or need to add something to your hair.. Cheeky Poppins brings the glamorous quick fix for all those needs! Very well known for their Shoekies which came from the well known moment where an unfortunate staining to a favourite pair of shoes occur, a versatile clip with that added sparkle was used to hide the stain but also bring the shoes back to life with a new look. 
But it doesn't end there, Cheeky Poppins also create alternatives to jewellery, special occasions and day to day adornments!

I was intrigued to hear more of the story of the 'Shoekies' as I had the chance to interview Jennifer, the owner of Cheeky Poppins.

Interview with Jennifer Chuks l Owner of Cheeky Poppins Shoe Clips

1) What has been your key inspiration to your current career?
My key inspiration is trying my hardest to inspire originality in fashion by more than just a few daredevils. To see more risk takers on the high street and more eccentricities in my South London neighbourhood. It doesn't take as much effort as some hipsters may make you assume to add a bit of originality and uniqueness to an ensemble, and I have always believed the easiest way to personalise and jazz up anything are the accessories. The easiest but by no means the most dramatic, but if we were all dramatic there will be panic.

2) What do you enjoy the most about your job?
I enjoy the feedback I get from customers the most. I do a lot of instagramming and take a lot of street style images and talk a lot to real people. Tell them about the product and their excitement fills me with more enthusiasm for my product each day. I thought it would never cotton on and I am very glad to eat my own words.

3) To date, what has been your 'proudest' moment?
My proudest moment was winning “Best Selected Exhibitor” by Show Review UK magazine when I exhibited at my first ever trade show Pure London 34 in August this year. I put every bit of my personality into my stand to really hammer home our fun fashion ethos. We had cake stands to display the product in, filled with brightly coloured tissue paper and each accessory was literally the icing on each cake. Boutique owners and buyers loved the concept and the product and it has been a whirlwind of busy busy busy ever since. It was a big investment and I was so proud that we shone brightly enough and were awarded for it.

4) Where do you see yourself in the future?
I certainly don’t see myself slowing down in any way shape or form in the future. I hope to go from strength to strength with the product. The range has tripled since its launch and I only wish to continue with Cheeky Poppins Shoe Clips as the most innovative product in high street fashion for a very long time. 

5) What tips/advice would you give to someone who wants to go down the same career path as yourself?
I am not sure I am in a position to give advice as everyone’s situation going into a career in fashion will be extremely different. Something which applies to every Dick, Tom and Harry would be research your toosh off. Research, research, research. Perspective is a very useful asset and will help a bunch. And sleep, don’t try and be a superhero, it will catch up with you. I think that is the most constructive advice I can broadly dish out.

6) Which would you say is your favourite item off your website at the moment?
Ah my favourite question. When I saw Bella I realised how girly I actually was. I watch wrestling, am an avid gym goer and prefer cider to a G&T. It has been ages since I have left the house without glass beaded bows attached to my shoes, aka Bella. Purse friendly, real leather so I don’t have to fret if I get caught in the rain and uber transferable. Worn on Converse and snake skin peep toe platforms alike, day and night. I absolutely love them.
