Irregular Choice Christmas collection

A very very very quick guide to today’s Irregular Choice Christmas shoe released (not to be confused with the Party shoe release a few weeks ago, we’re being hit with a lot of releases right?!?!). It’s amazing to be getting so many new shoes but it does make knowing when to flash the cash difficult in the current climate at this time of year. Anways, less with the doom and on with the shoes.

When and where?

12 noon today, Friday 20th 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. It worked for The Cat In A Hat though. 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.

I’ll update the list if i find more.

So what will be for sale?

We’ve only actually seen one preview. A new Christmas boot called Trees A Crowd, one of my favourite Irregular Choice names for a while. The boot has a fluffy and gold North Pole on one shoe complete with elves and a Christmas tree on the other. The tree is stunning with real mini baubles and candy canes and the string of lights light up.. I’m not as keen on the Ugly Jumper background though. I love the colours but i think it might be a placement shoes where it’s all down to the luck of the draw how the fabric pattern is positioned on your shoe. The heel height is 8.6cm and it’s the same shoe design as Ginger’s House, Ghost House, Arise, Night Terror to name a few.

There are also five new Christmas decorations this year that were released yesterday, plus three that are Exclusive to the official website. I’m pretty certain this is our first mini bag bauble with a tiny version of House Party being created.

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.

Good luck and all the best for the holidays.
