Lazy Oaf’s flagship store in Ganton Street, just off Carnaby Street, London, had been under construction for a week so when we were invited to the store relaunch, being as nosy as I am, I wanted to take a look at the new surroundings..

With sparkling drinks and Desperado’s on hand we had a sneak peak at the new men‘s and women’s S/S ’14 collection! The new collection has its usual 90s throwbacks or play on words of major popular labels.

I’m a bit obsessed with matching co-ords so my faves had to be the ‘Lazy Oaf Big Fat Yes Sweatshirt’ and matching ‘I said Yes’ Skirt. Another had to be the ‘Lazy Oaf Armless Sweatshirt’, perfect to wear either casually with jeans and sneakers during the day or with mega high flatforms & opaque tights at night.

Ubiquitously known for their playful patterns and satirical statements, Lazy Oaf delivered again this season with their men’s Join the dots‘ and pizza theme throughout. A huge thumbs up from us for their bright and playful attitude during this dreary time of year! Wear brights and hopefully the weather will start reflecting that!

Celebrate New Beer’s Eve the Shopcade Way!

Happy New Beer’s Eve!

This Friday evening (April 6th) sees us celebrate New Beer’s Eve – and we can’t wait!

But what is it?

If you’re not already in the know, New Beer’s Eve is an unofficial holiday which celebrates the end of Prohibition.

It originated in 1933, and saw beer become legal within the United States at the stroke of midnight on April 7th.

Let’s party!

So why not celebrate the Shopcade way? Be the envy of your friends with a Dual Beverage Dispenser Backpack, or keep your beer cold in this Beer Chiller, or even in an Inflatable Beer Bucket.

Or if wine is more your thing, have a look at these cool Bookend Wine Racks, or these Prescott wine glasses.

Either way, enjoy your night!

Option 1: Be a bit of a rebel
Show them you’re not a work-slave afterhours, instead, you’re in control. Go black, but wear something slightly bad. Like a curve-hugging little black dress or a bad boy biker jacket…

Option 2: Get some attention 
Okay, there will surely be enough office-friendly monochrome outfits, so bring on some vibrant colours, and ladies, some heels. Colors demand attention, and, unlike during work hours, that’s a good thing in a party.

Option 3: Stay clean
So you messed up your presentation. Or your colleagues think you’re a slacker. Either way, maybe your office needs to take you a little bit more seriously. Probably a Tshirt with an ironic tagline won’t cut it:
