Last week, I headed down to the uber cool 2022 NQ venue in Manchester’s trendy Northern Quarter for an urban hip-hop party dedicated to bloggers, courtesy of fashion retailer Getthelabel.com
The event opened its doors to lots and lots of North-West based fashion bloggers like myself, where we were able to browse lots of rails and mannequins showcasing the latest fashions from the popular online retailer. Known for selling brands such as Timberland, VOI Jeans, Nike, Converse, Lipsy, Puma and Adidas, it’s a brilliant e-tailer for both casual and evening wear, and a must-have retailer for the brand savvy shoppers! As much as I am really girly and a number one dress and skirt shopper, I love a quirky hoody and baggy logo t-shirt day, complete with Converse on the feet, so GetTheLabel really does cater for the majority of people. The brand has an urban, edgy feel, hence why the party was themed around a more ‘hip hop’ style with a super cool DJ and graffiti walls.
At one point, I even got to talk to the cameras about my blog and what it’s about, which GetTheLabel.com will be featuring across their social media platforms soon! (eek!)
There were so many items of clothing I liked when browsing the collections, and surprisingly for me I seemed to like more of their Summer casuals, such as crotched tops, motif t-shirts and lace-up pumps. They fed us with yummy branded cupcakes and a Mediterranean buffet, along with sparkling Prosecco and Bucks Fizz – a bloggers ideal party!
After the party I browsed the brochure they provided me with, before hopping onto the website and placing a few little orders, such as this pretty Vera Moda shirt, £14.99 which features a delicate lace collar.
I also got these white pumps from Pineapple, which will look great in the Summer with a pair of cut off denim shorts, or even a pair of simple black leggings in colder months. They cost an amazing £6.99!
Last but not least, I bought myself a low-priced Fila zip-up hoody for the gym, as I am literally spending almost every night at the gym recently, so the more hoodies I have the better! This black one is only £9.99 – I always wear black, I can’t get enough of it, so may as well wear it to the gym too… All in all, if you like your streetwear, and tend to have a slight urban style, yet want to browse a couple of dress brands too at lower prices, take a look at GetTheLabel.com!
