MAJOR MOTEL MADNESS! a.k.a. Super Sample Sale haul~

If Motel Rocks ever opens a store in London, I totes get dibs on a job as their star salesperson. ;D

'Jokes' aside, I recently had the pleasure of once again assisting the London Motel team with running the recent sample sale and let me just say, being surrounded by all that Motel goodness with all the credits I earned, I seriously felt like a kid in a candy store and here is what I got with said credit!:

TALK ABOUT A MEGA-HAUL, RIGHT?! Sadly, due to lack of space and botheredness, I couldn't take clearer pictures of the clothes without them coming out looking like blah eBay photos, so this is as good as it's gonna get. Soz. IF that is such a bother, however, listed below (in roughly clockwise order) are all the deets of the above clothes so you can go and easily Google them for better photos, should you wish to:

Pearl Dress in Mighty Criss Cross (RRP £42 - SSP* £15) // Kadie Skirt in Magenta (RRP £25 - SSP £5) // Sunstone Bikini in Cosmic (RRP £35 - SSP £5) // Lapis Bikini in Harlequin (RRP £35 - SSP £5) // Louski Dress in Black Mesh (RRP £25 - SSP £15) // Nessy Dress in Black Spandex (RRP £38 - SSP £15) // Aleka Skirt in Black (RRP £29 - SSP £5) // Mademoiselle Dress in Tiger Rose (RRP £38 - SSP £15) // Peridot Swimsuit in Black (RRP £35 - SSP £5) // Deborah Studded Sleeve Dress (RRP £32 - SSP £15) // Bernice Bralet in Purple Lace (RRP £35 - SSP £5) = TOTAL VALUE OF £340!!

Haha, totes looks like I just bought a whole new wardrobe... and believe it or not, this isn't even everything, BUT, I decided to not include the other stuffs as they weren't for me, so yeah. Oh, actually, there is ONE more thing I got for myself and it also just so happens to be my favourite of the lot! Behold the beauty (contrasted by my hideousness, but whatevs) of the 'Honey Fluffy Cardigan in Purple' (RRP £52 - SSP £15)!

EDIT!: So, feeling all excited about the relaxing weekend ahead of me I TOTALLY forgot that I was to be working again on Monday (clearing up post-sample sale) and so would therefore be getting more stuff! It's not all that much, but I felt it would be a shame not to include them in this post as well, so here they are, the final pieces!

Yoko Dress (RRP £42 - SSP £15) // Maggie Top in Japanese (RRP £25 - SSP £5) // Grace Studded Dress (RRP £45 - SSP £15) ... making the actual total value about £452!! Mind blown much?!

Miss the sample sale? Can't wait for the next one? Worry not, for with the code below you too are able to get a rad discount on your Motel purchases, so you're welcome! xD

In other news, whilst working at the sample sale, I was interviewed by Motel, apparently, for an upcoming street team feature on their blog - how exciting! I'll admit, my answers were wayyy lame, but still, it did feel kind of cool to even get asked in the first place, so yay for that at least! I'll probs tweet the link to it if/when it comes out, so keep your eyes peeled!

Anyway, that's all for now, I guess. Hopefully there won't be SUCH a long gap between this and my next post, but we'll just have to see how things go, I suppose... but yeah, bye for nowww!

*SSP = sample sale price

PS.: before anyone looks at all the stuff and thinks 'hey! maybe i should volunteer next time too and get loads of goodies!' or 'that's so not fair that you get all of that without really paying for it!', just know that this was the product of over 24 hours of repeatedly organising rails of clothes, repeatedly picking up clothes off the floor and re-hanging them, carrying very heavy piles of clothes up and down stairs and being on my feet for a good majority of the time - all within the space of 3 days. it was a lot of hard work and i am absolutely shattered, not to mention the fact that i was aching so much after the first day that when i got out of bed the next morning i immediately collapsed, so please consider that before remarking either of the aforementioned comments.
PPS.: that is not to say you shouldn't volunteer, given the chance - go for it! but just don't let your lust for piles and piles of yummy motel clothes make you sign up for more than what's good for you! ;D
