Secret Sales // Marc Jacobs Handbag Giveaway

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.)

And then there’s this.

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. will be drawing the winner on Tuesday 31st July. Check back here for details:

    Secret Sales is hardly a new site – I’ve been a member for at least 3 years. Quite right on the huge savings though!
