Lets not forget the reality of humankind is that our progress is faltering in many departments but the fallen, the injured, the widowed and the children still rely on the Poppy Appeal to provide welfare for serving and ex-service people from across all the Armed Forces.
Sometimes fashion really does lend a helping hand with the advent of the poppy as a piece to wear with pride and style during the Poppy Appeal run up to Armistice Day on November 11th. I've already bought mine and as well as donating by buying the poppy to wear with ease, I also happily donate my lose change to the collection tins.
I bought my poppy from aptly named Poppy Sparkles for £9.00 including UK postage the poppies can be brought from Viv or via her Etsy shop.
On the high street Marks and Spencer are 'bedazzling' us with their Diamanté Encrusted Remembrance Day Poppy Brooch £15 - this is a real wow poppy that I need for night time. Currently it is the easiest way to transform your day to night look! The M&S diamanté brooches are available in stores and online.
