Remember when Groupon and LivingSocial used to not suck? No, me neither. Actually, I once got a pretty decent Brazilian meal by an old train station and someone I knew (a friend of a friend…you won’t know them) got colonic irrigation for half price. But that’s about the best I’ve come across. Well, except for a $50,000 ocean voyage with a DVD autographed by a Leonardo DiCaprio lookalike (No, really.)
So, I’m sure you’ll understand my scepticism when I was approached to do a sponsored post (HASHTAG SPON) about a new site called Secret Sales. EXCEPT, they’re nothing like the usual ‘deals sites’ suspects because after getting a sneak preview of their stock I want…well, everything.
I recently decided I wanted a briefcase. I have more recently decided I want THIS^ briefcase. I’ve been hankering for a new watch for a little while. Up pops this little beauty -
Down to £265 from £1252. The reductions on Secret Sales aren’t just crazy, they’re ‘Crazy Betty crazy’. If you’re unfortunate enough not to be a ’90s kid, I direct your attention to the video below. Fast forward to 2m22s. Go on, take a minute, I’ll meet you further down the page.
Oh, there you are, thought you’d left. My adventures on the pre-live site also uncovered this Scotch & Soda outfit that I loved, though I’m not sure I have the legs for it…Ladies(/gays), the fella looks a bit like R Pattz Jr and he’s doing a pose that could have come straight out of How to Pose Like a Fashion Blogger. N’aww. And if you want to recreate the whole outfit at home (which I kinda do…), it’ll set you back £56 instead of the RRP of £150. Pow.
Sales dates are as follows -
MATHIS MONTABON: From Today to Thursday 12th of July
LOUIS VUITTON: from Tuesday 10th at 5pm to Friday 13th of July
FARAH VINTAGE: from Friday 13th to Monday 16th of July
SCOTCH&SODA: from Monday the 16th
If you’ve made it all the way through this post (come on, it wasn’t THAT bad, was it?), I’ve got a little treat for you – if you sign up to the site using the link at the end of this post, you’ll go into a draw to win a Marc Jacobs handbag. Me and Marc have had our disagreements in the past (read: I’ve been snarky about him on Twitter…), but I kinda love this one. There are a few other bloggers in on the competition, but I totally want one of you guys to win it. Don’t say I never gave you anything. #OneTreeHill #flashbacks
The Marc Jacobs competition is now closed. Thank you for your participation, you little beauties. Secretsales.com will be drawing the winner on Tuesday 31st July. Check back here for details: http://bit.ly/MO8va3
