Look at me! Look at me NOW! – The Cat In A Hat Irregular Choice launch guide

I would like to start today’s release guide with a little peom (that I’d like, to perform, for you now)

I know we're in lockdown
And the sun is not sunny
But we can buy some new shoes
And make "some fun that is funny"

Wearing them, all day
Inside our house
For the next billion years
'Til we can finally go out

What will there be?
Flats, or heels tall?
We can't wait to find out
No we can't wait at all

So lets all clap for tomorrow
And cheer up our (Irregular) voice
For here comes The Cat In A Hat
By Irregular Choice

In case you missed that, Irregular Choice are launching The Cat In A Hat collection and this is a quick quide for you.

When and where?

12 noon tomorrow, Friday 13th November, at Irregular Choice but also at the list of stores below if you scroll down.

So what’s going to happen?

IC generally use a virtual queue for their launches. It had issues for Care Bears part 2 a while back so it was turned off. If it’s back, here’s my experience from previous years:

Be on the website 30 minutes before

Be signed in

Have anything else you want to order already in your basket

Shortly before the launch the website with change and then you’ll be placed randomly into a virtual queue. The screen will count down and tell you how long you have left to wait and then when it’s your time you’ll get redirected to the site. You usually have 20 minutes or so to shop but it will tell you on the screen.

Irregular Choice usually put photos of the entire launch on their facebook page with prices either just before or dead on launch time.

Independents will be first come first served and it may be useful to check them whilst waiting for the official site but do note that they have far less items so sell out quicker and some items, such as the scarf, will be exclusive so you can only get it direct from the official site.

The Independents we know that are sell The Cat In A Hat Collection collection are:

Daisy Mae Boutique (Klarna)

Lotties Atik (Klarna & Clear Pay)

Lovely Boutique

Rockamilly (Klarna) – They’ve also done a release guide (*for 10% discount scroll to the bottom)

Shoe Emporium (Klarna & Clear Pay)

If you want to see a little something me and the lovely Chamina have been working on to do with the launch then check out the Shoe Emporium blog after 12 noon tomorrow. Fingers crossed it will help you a lot with the launch (If it’s still my Full Of Cheer post at the top then you’re too early).

I’ll update the list if i find more.

So what will be for sale?

So far we’ve seen some serious thigh high boots, high tops, tights and a bag. Here’s a summary for you to save you have to keep starring at the website:

The Cat In A Hat – First off, can we just applaud the stripey hat heel that goes on different directions on each shoe! Compete and utter genius. I love the sketches on these too that look like they’ve just jumped straight out of the story book and on to your leg. These have grown on me so much over the last week and thigh high boots are my favourite thing to wear. I think they suit me so much better than ankle boots. The heel height is 10cm.

I Know New Tricks bag – This is a perfect match for The Cat In A Hat boots. I’m not one for matchy matchy at the moment (I’ve been replacing a lot of my bags with Loungefly) but I’ve searched and searched and can’t find another bag. I do love this style too if it’s similar to the Hippokampos bag with the inside split in two. I love the more domey baf=gs too but they never seem to want to stand up on a shelf.

You-er Than You – High tops very similar to to the Snow White Happily Ever After from the Disney Princess Collection. I love that the fluffy tongue is black and white and they feature on of my favourite Seuss quotes. And Thinq 1 and Thing 2!! With fluffly hair!! And tartan!!

Tights – Like the boots, i love the illustrations on these so much and think the pink background is so perfect for the drawings to stand out and come to life. I’m a very big fan of Irregular Choice tights, i have two draws for my tights now and these are going right in it. These are up to size 16 one size fits all. Has anyone else noticed who else is on the tights box?

What if it sells out

Usually most stuff that sells out can be found. Check the independents as well as the Official site and set up alerts on the official site. You can also set up an ebay alert for the shoes you want as quite a few of the independents sell on there too. Eclectic sell on Ebay and Amazon so check both.

Facebook groups like Irregular Choice buy, sell and worship sometimes set up a post to link buyers searching for something specific to stockists. You can also try giving the Irregular Choice stores a call. They generall post on social media if they have the collection. The Manchester store have said they’re getting the collection so always worth a try but remember everyone else will be calling them too.
