Wow. 2023. Happy New Year everyone and i hope you had a great Christmas. I did resolve to try and bit a bit more structured in how often and when i write my newsletter this year but then James told me not to worry. An irregular newsletter for an irregular person. I don’t mind that man sometimes.

Apparently there’s this thing called the January blues. I wouldn’t know as it’s my favourite month (along with Decmeber as its Xmas followed by my birthday) but I thought why help people combat the blues by giving them a chance to win the very cute Grumpy Loungefly. I’ve also just hit 3k of followers friends on Instagram too so let’s celebrate a little. The giveaway is open until 7pm on Friday 6th January and you can enter on both Instagram and Facebook if you haven’t already. Newsletter subcribers get an automatic extra entry too. UK residents only, sorry.

Irregular Choice Wizard Of Oz Think Of Home & Think Of Home Again
Irregular Choice Wizard Of Oz Think Of Home & Think Of Home Again

As you may or may not know, I’m a little bit in love with the Wizard Of Oz. I own pretty much all of the heels from the Irregular Choice Wizard Of Oz collection. I say almost because IC released a new version of Think Of Home (Aptly named Think Of Home Again) in November last year. I really wanted someone to do a comparison of the new version and the old. I asked Irregular Choice if I could do it and they said yes!! I know!! I was loaned Think Of Home Again for a week. You can find out everything that you need to know about the two different versions in my review.

Disney Is Turning 100 – But It’s Drippy

The Disney Brothers Cartoon Studio contracted with a distributor for the Alice Comedies in 1923 marking the start of The Walt Disney Company, 100 years ago. To celebrate, Disney has brought out a range of platinum merch. There is a new Loungefly of course which features a dripping metal design that everyone seems to love but that I really can’t stand to look at. It must be some form of OCD or something but I cant bare that the drip is just there never going to fall. Anyways, overshare, I’m sure everyone else thinks the bag is amazing.

There are matching ears and ears hat, again with the drips (we won’t go back there again) but these were limited release and have sold out. They also came with a hefty price tag of £157 for the ears and £175 for the ears hats (did they just pick random amounts?).

For those who didn’t manage to get/couldn’t afford the drippy ears, we do have alternatives. I much prefer these. I’m calling them the 100 purple epcot ears and ears hat. I think they’re really cute and honestly don’t mind that they look like the Epcot ball. To get around the drippy Loungefly, I have two alternative suggestions below, both sequins, although I’m sure they’ll be an 100th sequin Loungefly at some point.

The release also includes plush, clothing, a Spirit Jersey (only the child’s is on the website at the moment) and a Dooney that I would definetly buy if I could afford it. A series of pins was released this morning too. You can find it all on the shopDisney website, with some pieces only available to pre-order.

Purple Celebration Sequin Is Coming Back

I know a lot of people love the Disney 100th Loungefly but for me, I just can’t deal with those drips. I do have a couple of great alternative Loungeflys though if you want to get into the platinum celebration spirit. The first is the Celebration Purple Loungefly.

I think this would look so good with the Spirit Jersey and those purple and silver ears and it’s about to be restocked on TruffleShuffle on the 5th January.

So Is the LASR Holographic

My second chpoice instead of the 100th Loungefly is also making a TruffleShuffle is also making a restock comeback. The LASR Holographic Sequin. It’s one of those bags that I really didn’t think I needed but once I got it I had no regrets. I think it’s going to look great with the 100 clebration colours.

It’s listed on TruffleShuffle as a 11th January return but you can sign up for notifications.

Bed Of Roses And Men’s Shoes Return

The Irregular Choice sub brand Bed Of Roses has made a return. We’ve not seen any releases under this label for a while but it’s back with a brand new swanky box and hightops and boots that all have names inspired by the Big Smoke.

I know many have been asking for Irregular Choice to release men’s shoes once more and that range is back too with two new designs. The goes cover sizes 40 to 46.

Get Ready Comics have also been very busy getting us those exclusive Loungefly over the holidays too. These include the very very very cute Russell (someone please give me an excuse to buy hm when i have three Up bags already), the light up Iron Man and a Stranger Things bag (don’t ask me about this one, I ain’t seen it).

And we’re still not done with the Loungefly news because Pop Figures gave us three new exclusives for the holidays too. This time we have a seriously beautiful Pinocchio crossbody which looks like one of those classic and classy handbags. It even comes with a scarf. It’s on my list of things I really really want. There was also a new Winnie The Pooh All Over Print (AOP) and a very snuggly Baloo.

One of the most popular bags of 2022 it would seem, a number of stockists have had a restock of the Emerald Green Sequin Loungefly. The include Get Ready Comics, Truffle Shuffle and Pop Figures.

Feburary Pre-Orders

Love ’em or hate ’em, Loungefly pre-orders are here to stay and I love some of the bags we have coming in February. I am obsessed with with pastel polka dots minnie. I’ve pre-ordered the backpack but i desperately want the crossbody too. I don’t feel I can justify both but I have so so so many cute spring outfit ideas for them. I’m also loving the Jetsons mini backpack too. I have the perfect look for it. Pre-orders are currently available at Get Ready Comics and Pop Figures.

You can find a full gallery of what is coming at the end of this newsletter (I stole the images from Get Ready Comics. Get Ready Comics used to sponser my pre-order Loungefly guides when I did them early last year.) Does anyone want a comeback?
