Four generations of my family agree: The Poppet is the perfect little black dress for all occasions

I realize that just about every day someone new claims to have found the perfect little black dress, but search no further — I have found one that is truly unrivaled. Not only does it pack away in its own conveniently attached pouch and come out totally wrinkle free, but it’s flattering on everyone–and I do mean everyone. I had four (count ’em, FOUR) generations of women in my family try the same dress on, and each one looked stunning. I kid you not.

The said perfect little black dress is called the Poppet, and it’s the brainchild of friends  Helen Tyler  of Chicago and Karen Hill-Krolow of Wisconsin. The original idea was a cardigan in a protective pouch that you could toss in your purse and whip out at the cineplex, restaurant, wherever there was a chill. That evolved into the perfect little black dress that you can throw in your backpack, messenger bag or suitcase, and quickly transition from day to night without an ironing board in site.

Among the Poppet’s fabulous features:

  • Soft and slinky wrinkle-resistant fabric
  • Side pockets – who doesn’t love pockets!?
  • Folds into its attached water-repellent , tear proof pocket
  • Stylish, universally flattering
  • 3/4 ruched sleeves
  • Sweetheart Neckline
  • Box Pleat back detail
  • Empire Waist
  • Sits just below the knee
  • Machine Washable
  • Made in the USA

I quickly saw its value to me personally, especially on a cruise. It takes up such little suitcase space, and is absolutely maintenance free. There are so many other things I’d rather be doing on vacation than ironing clothes.

I also thought if would be perfect for my nieces, whether they’re backpacking and decide to attend a classical concert or dressy dinner, or hanging out at the family ranch and need something other than blue jeans and a flannel shirt to wear to church on Sunday. The empire waist make it great for those in early stages of pregnancy and the ones with small children enjoy the stretchy and flatters just about every figure and the fact that it’s fully washable, so spills and smudges are quickly remedied.

To put my theory that it looks good on everyone to the test, I had “girls” from four generations of my family try it on, and sure enough, every one of them TOTALLY rocked it. Well, the six year old rocked it playing dress up, but still. This dress is an absolute MUST HAVE for almost every female.

Yours truly. I’m somewhere in my 40’s — no 50’s. I forget

And here’s my grand niece Nikole. If she looks this good in the Poppet at 6, just imagine how gorgeous she’ll look at 18!

I admit, this perfect little black dress isn’t cheap. At $169.90, it’s a bit of an investment for some. But it is timeless, and you can share it with your daughter, sister, mom, whatever female happens to be in the vicinity. My advice to you is to simply buy it, wear it, share it. Shipping in the US is free.
