Working the Motel Rocks Sample Sale!


So this is my first December post I know, but with good reason as it's been a pretty busy month so far. Apart from being super giddy at the prospect that Christmas is a matter of weeks away (eeep), and squeezing in many a shopping spree where my intention is to buy presents for others yet I mostly leave with more goodies for myself, last week I had the pleasure of working at Motel Rocks' Showroom in Great Portland Street, London for their seasonal Sample Sale. This was a two day event held to sell some of the previous season's stock and also some unique pieces that never actually made it to be reproduced.
I've been to lots of their sample sales in the past as a customer and they've always gone down a treat with fashionistas wanting to snap up a bargain, and since I've been a fan of Motel for years it wasn't a hard decision when I was asked if I wanted to work both days of the sale, as well as the days before and after to help set up and clear up.
Every sample sale they hold has crazy low prices and deals: a choice of three separates (e.g. a skirt, a top and a pair of shorts) for £15, two dresses, jeans or playsuits (or a combination) for £20, and really low prices on their knitwear, leather jackets and coats, so it's well worth the trip to London! It's such a great atmosphere as well, and so lovely to get talking to lots of girls who share a similar interest and love of fashion.

For all the hours I worked I also got a certain amount of clothes I could pick out and take home, which was the super juicy cherry on top! I walked away with about 5 bags in total (I worked a lot of hours), spilling over with super pretty clothes having spent ages trying them all on and debating what ones I preferred back at the showroom, and I can't wait to share some of them in a later post!

For now, here are a few snaps of the day and a sneaky peek at some of the pieces I took home with me! :) Jx
