Labour MP, Angela Rayner complained about service at the Irregular Choice, Brighton Branch for receiving poor service on pre-ordering a pair of Star War Robot R2-D2 heeled shoes. The branch said they didn’t take pre-orders but located a pair in China that they could sell her. The word is that the MP would not shop there again.

Here’s an extract from our book Fashion Fabulous London giving an unbiased review of Irregular Choice:

Plain black suede and glitter ankle boots £90 were the only sane shoes in the place. Otherwise, it’s out of control. Here, you’ll find giant flowers on clashing floral fabric shoes at £84.99, giant bows and knitted cats on others, old school 70’s disco sounds, loads of colour on shoes, even shoes with bunches of grapes! Most heels are low to medium with some higher platform wedges. Service is friendly, although the manager kept shouting at the staff to serve customers! On clothes, it’s 50’s-style items – leggings, tops and skirts – but shoes are the main event. Décor-wise the shop has a red exterior and an interior peppered with unique chairs – red sparkles on top and transparent underneath with trolls inside.
