    BRAND SPOTLIGHT | Cheap Monday

    It's here.

    So you probably want to know what's got us so excited here at JOY? Well, we can finally announce that we are now stocking Cheap Monday for women. Whoop!

    Cheap Monday - JOY 02

    Did you know?

    It was 2004 when that little Cheap Monday skull made its first appearance in Stockholm.

    Noticing a need for cheap, fashion forward jeans, Cheap Monday took it upon themselves to answer that need themselves. And so the first ever in-brand Cheap Monday style (Tight) was born! Super tight, super stylish, super good.

    It was, of course, an instant success, with the first 800 pairs selling out in a couple of weeks. Fast forward to now and Cheap Monday have developed into an international brand with full collections selling all over the world.

    On Trend | Pom Poms

    A huge hit in 2015, it doesn't look like the pom pom is going anywhere this year either. Popping up on scarves, hats and gloves, it seems the pull of the pom pom ain't budging. As popular with the celebs as they are on the high street, pom poms are the perfect way to add some oomph to your outfit.

    Pom Pom - JOY 01

     Louche Knitted Faux Fur Pom Pom Beanie £12.00
    Louche Leatrice Pom Pom Fedora £20.00

    Who's Done It?

    Gucci has done it (Google those AW15 heels), Fendi has done it, Cara Delevigne has done it and they've even made their way into furniture design. However you like to style your pom poms, they've cropped up on the catwalks, front row fashion elite and countless street style shots.

    How To Do It

    Do it right, and you'll do it well. Add a pom pom to your outfit if you want to liven it up and push the playful. Beware though, these little balls of fun are easy to overdo! Keep it understated but bold.

    Pom Pom - JOY 02

    Louche Pom Pom Woolen Scarf - £20.00
    Louche Luxe Leather Pom Pom Gloves - £30.00

    What The Experts Say

    “I think people love the idea that fashion is becoming fun again. They provide the opportunity to add a splash of colour to your wardrobe, or to update a neutral handbag. They semaphore fun, and fashion should be about that really.” Nicola Rose, creative director of fashion at Red magazine, in an interview with The Guardian.

  6. Everything You Need To Know About Season Two of Stranger Things

    Everything You Need To Know About Season Two of Stranger Things

    Ahhh, Stranger Things. A love letter to the 80s and the third most watched show on Netflix. If you haven't seen the first season then we wanna know what rock you've been under! With all sorts flying around about the new season, we took it upon ourselves to set the record straight. Oh, and watch out for those spoilers.


    1. It's definitely coming.

    Stranger Things - Joy 02

    Obvious? Maybe. Exciting? Definitely. Season two of Stranger Things will be coming back to Netflix. Although exact dates are yet to be confirmed, it's expected to land at some point in 2017.


    2. It'll be set one year from where season one left off. 

    Stranger Things - Joy 04

    Although season one was left on quite the cliffhanger, season two won't carry on from where it left off. Instead, we'll be jumping a year ahead to 1984 (the year of Ghostbusters, Indiana Jones and Gremlins!).


    3. Eleven is coming back. 

    Stranger Things - Joy 01

    You thought it, and we thought it too. What did happen to our lucky number Eleven after she did that thing with the Demogorgon? Well it looks like we'll finally find out as all signs seem to point to her making a comeback in season two, along with some new friends and familiar faces. Whoop!


    4. We know the episode names. 

    Stranger Things - Joy 03

    That's right! All nine of them.

    1. Madmax
    2. The Boy Who Came Back to Life
    3. The Pumpkin Patch
    4. The Palace
    5. The Storm
    6. The Pollywog
    7. The Secret Cabin
    8. The Brain
    9. The Lost Brother


    5. There's going to be #JusticeForBarb 

    Stranger Things - Joy 05

    Who would've thought Barb would create the storm she did after the first season? Well news of the outrage has obviously reached the Duffer Brothers who've since promised that, although they don't see Barb returning in season two, are going to give her the justice she deserves. Finally.
