Well, it’s finally happened… we’ve reached our second birthday! And what an intense two years it’s been! Seven collections and two more on the way! We’re narrowed down our favourite customers, and know that the people that rock PHO sizz care about ethical slow fashion, supporting indie small businesses and, of course, wearing clothes that are well made and that they like, regardless of trends.
We’ve grown up and Tomi and Jacqui run a relatively smooth ship, and along with our lovely seamstresses, our manufacturing manager, our paid interns and magical helper elves, not to mention all the models that help us out, we really feel like a tight-knit family, even thought we’re split across three cities right now. Our great customers, particularly our United Sass Members have encouraged us to keep going and growing, so, we want to thank you by chucking a terrible tantrum, just like a two year old, and giving away a bunch of our stock, to thank you! 😉
We have THREE different things going on for our 2nd birthday celebrations, our TERRIBLE TWO SALE, our DOUBLE TROUBLE instagram giveaways and a special surprise coming on our actual birthday on April 2nd.
TERRIBLE TWO SALE
Firstly, we’ve got a TERRIBLE TWO SALE happening right now on a lot of our summer stock. We’ve now left Design A Space and are focusing on selling online, at Rose St Market, and through other stores that stock us like Morley’s Emporium in Bendigo, and, to make space for our winter collections, we’re trying to get rid of the last of summer stock, with plenty of bargains. Take a look at the pics below to see some of the stock we’ve got on sale – these pics were taken by Jacqui the other day with her two terrible friends who played dress-ups with our stock while relaxing on a rooftop for their day off. You can never lose with a good game of dress-ups!
Check out on for sale items here, but remember, be quick, there are sometimes only one item left! http://phosizzlethreads.com/product-category/sale/
DOUBLE TROUBLE INSTAGRAM GIVEAWAYS
Another exciting element of our 2nd birthday is our DOUBLE TROUBLE GIVEAWAYS via instagram. We’ll be giving away five dresses in 5 days as well as five $50 gift vouchers! That’s a lot of free stuff! These giveaways are actually more about winning a dress for your best friend, your partner-in-crime, your double trouble lady, someone you know who will look great in it, but has never thought about snagging it for themselves. As a reward for suggesting them, if your name is picked, you’ll win the dress for your friend AND a $50 voucher for yourself to spend on PHO sizzle. DOUBLE WIN! Each competition will run for 24 hours only and then the winner will be announced just as the next comp is starting.
To enter these 5 days of DOUBLE TROUBLE competitions, you need to follow us on instagram at @phosizzlethreads and tag one friend you think would like to win the dress. You can only tag one friend each day cos we want this to be a sincere comp, not some spammy shit, so, think who you know who would actually want the prize, ay? After you’ve tagged a friend, you’ll automatically go into the running to win the $50 voucher for yourself. You do also need to share the image on your own instagram and tag us to spread awareness about our comp and so we can track entries easily. After 24 hours we will put the names into a random winner generator thingy and notify the winners by DM on instagram. This comp is open to anyone worldwide and we will post the winning clothes anywhere.
You’re probably wondering which five pieces might be part of these giveaways, well, here are some clues in no particular order…
Now, the third part of our birthday celebrations will have to wait until April 2nd, but, otherwise, good luck with the instagram competitions and nabbing a piece on sale before they sell out, and overall, hooray for turning two!!
Lots of love, the PHO sizzle team
