First of all, I apologise for how picture-heavy this post is! I just couldn't narrow it down any more!
On Thursday I hopped on a train to Manchester to attend the Get The Label Urban Party. With it being dubbed a "Hip-Hop Urban Party" (not usually my style), I didn't know what to expect, but this was easily one of the best events I've ever been to!
Arriving at the 2022NQ basement, which was the perfect venue for this event with it's run-down, urban feel, we were greeted by the lovely ladies from Get The Label and Hat-Trick PR. Me and the lovely Danielle (A Blog From Blackpool) were the first to arrive (eager beavers) and we were given star treatment right from the beginning; being signed in, offered a glass of champagne or bucks fizz and shown around the different set-ups in the venue. We were handed three tags and set free to roam around the multiple racks of clothes and displays of shoes and accessories to pick three samples to be sent for review- very generous since a lot of the items were from brands like Nike, Glamorous, Lipsy and AX Paris! I fell in love with a pair of Nike Blazers and the pretty white lace dress that you can see in the fifth photograph.
Once more bloggers started to arrive, the canapes were brought out which were AH-mazing- I may have indulged a little too much in the bruschetta and the chicken, ham and asparagus pie slices, and of course I wasn't going to turn down a Get The Label cupcake! Staff were always on hand to ask if we wanted another drink, too!
There were many exciting features to take part in over the course of the evening too, including graffiti wall which we could doodle all over, and a styling competition in which we could put together an outfit using the items that were on offer and dress one of the Get The Label models or a mannequin. On the hour, every hour a winner was selected to win everything in the outfit she created, and guess who won the first one?! Me! I styled a lovely Glamorous playsuit which you can see on the model in the photographs below- the heels I chose to pair it with are killer! There was also a videographer on hand who was offering to film individual blogger pitches which will appear on the Get The Label Facebook page- I put off doing one for ages but went for it in the end; need to get over my camera-shyness sooner or later! I'm dreading watching it though haha, we had to give our whole pitch in a single take and I'm so awkward!
To end the evening, we were handed a goodie bag which contained a Barry M Nail Paint, a necklace, a gift voucher and lots of sweets! There goes my healthy eating!
I'll leave you here with some more photographs that were taken by the official photographer on the night; make sure you check out the Get The Label Facebook Page as there are many more pictures there! Also, don't forget to take a look at their website- Get The Label stocks pieces from a lot of great brands for up to 70% off the RRP!
Thanks for an amazing event, Get The Label!
