DaisyStreet.co.uk Fashion Bloggers Christmas Party3.12.12
Last Thursday I took a little trip to Manchester to go along to the Daisy Street Fashion Bloggers Christmas Party. DaisyStreet.co.uk have only been around for about a year now; I think I first heard about the brand about 6 months ago, when they were strictly a shoe retailer. They branched out a little while ago to add clothes to their range, and I must say... they are genuinely one of my favourite new online retailers! I've got some JC lita look-alikes from Daisy Street (similar here, featured in this post) and also some matte disco pant style trousers (that I wore on the night! See them in this post). Their prices are extremely reasonable, particularly the clothing, and they offer free delivery (I'm a sucker for free delivery, remember!?).
I met up with Abi (Handbags and Gladrags) and Demi (Moments de la Mode) (both in bottom image) before heading to the venue. When we arrived there were gorgeous clothes and shoes on display all around the room, along with plenty of champers and canapes! There was a definite festive feel: sequins, deep reds, velvet, fluffy jumpers and glitter galore, with a mix of party pieces and cosy casuals. Some of my favourite pieces were the lace and velvet dresses (not yet on the website unfortunately, but they will be soon!) and the disco pants that came in a multitude of colours including khaki, emerald, bright red and wine - almost as many colours as American Apparel has!
We were each lucky enough to be able to place a tag on one item that we'd like to review. I thought this was a brilliant (and generous!) idea, as it's always handy to see a product in the flesh. I picked out the Draco Studded Boots in black (pictured above, the Chloe Susanna lookalikes) as I live in boots throughout the year and I'd fallen in love with them after seeing similar pairs on other blogs!
I met some really friendly bloggers throughout the night and Daisy Street and Punk PR made it simply fantastic! I doubt I need to entice you anymore, but if you haven't checked out the DaisyStreet.co.uk website you seriously need to! Keep an eye out for more brilliant AW pieces hitting the website over the next couple of weeks too.
