It’s been an exciting few days for me, as my wonderful sister Steph has been staying here in Manchester with us. I’ve been introducing her to the world of blogging and social media, as she is planning to launch her own fashion blog very soon. It was an awesome coincidence to be invited to the launch of a brand new fashion-centered website last night, as I was able to take Steph along!
We got ourselves all ready for a fun night (how much do you love Steph’s dress?) and headed out to the exclusive Circle Club in Barton Square. We were greeted by the lovely Kaley, owner of CoutureCrush.com – their tagline is ‘Seek. Sell. Switch.‘, and the website will be a place to exchange and shop for pre-loved and new designer accessories.
We were shown to a seating area where lots of fellow bloggers were enjoying cocktails, and were given a free drinks voucher. We sat and soaked up the atmosphere of the Circle Club for a few moments – it is gorgeous!
We went and picked up our cocktails from the bar and slowly got chatting to some of the fellow bloggers! Kaley also came round to let us know that there would be a small speech and some entertainment a little later on, so we chatted away for a while longer!
I love the idea of CoutureCrush – the feeling of owning a designer item is always amazing, but not necessarily purse-friendly! The fact that you can search for pre-loved and vintage items, or even swap your items with others, is awesome.
This is a quick snapshot from Kaley’s speech, where she explained a little more about what CoutureCrush is all about. I’m so excited to see the fully-launched website very soon, and will be avidly keeping an eye out for Vivienne Westwood items!
I also gave in and tried one of the amazing cupcakes we were given – they were beyond delicious! I pushed myself extra hard in my workout this morning to make up for it 😉
The entertainment was fantastic – a group of 6 dancers performed to a medley of Beyonce songs and totally owned it! It made for a great night, and it was brilliant to be able to introduce my sister to the world of blogger events.
Will you be checking out CoutureCrush?
