Cocktail Party With MyBag

Location: The Alchemist, New York Street, Manchester

On Thursday evening, I attended MyBag.com's #MyBagMostWanted cocktail party at The Alchemist, a perfect venue for the evening which is known for its modern interiors and skills in mixology. Greeted on arrival with a fresh and fruity peaches & cream cocktail, accompanied with a mini beaker of prosecco, I got stuck in straight away with viewing the fantastic designer handbags over canapes and cocktails!

All You Need Is Love Handbags
Featuring vibrant designers including Karl Lagerfield, Aspinal of London and Lulu Guiness, the handbag collection in the run up to London Fashion Week is fun, bright and flirty. Lagerfeld's bold faux leather cat Choupette is simple, but has a playful element with the applique of the cat's glitter sunglasses, making it one of my favourite bags from the collection (crazy cat lady over here). Amongst The Cambridge Satchel Company, Aspinal of London was also a firm favourite with me, delivering the goods on their classic chic leather style, contrasting below the dusty pink with a sharp grey tone. The collection as a whole oozed sophistication but kept a flamboyant nature with details such as a fluffy pom-pom or a touch of glitter. The think-pink nature of the handbags I felt really reflected the popular bright, pastel and flamingo themes that we've seen this season.

The Venue
The Alchemist describes itself as a 'copper cased wonderland', a statement I could easily agree on. Packed with quirky and fine interiors from its caged lightbulbs and twinkling window panes to its comfortable leather couches and its statement neon sign, The Alchemist creates a vibe that is not just fit for a chilled drink but leaves a signal of excitement in the air. The staff not only ensured we enjoyed our cocktails, but gave us our very own lesson in the art of mixology, stirring up cocktails such as the Bubble Bath and the Lightbulb Moment! They fizzed, sparkled and smoked, and guests, including myself, were definitely left in awe of the amazing creations.

I had the most insane time at MyBag's cocktail party, the vibe was awesome and the cocktails, of course. were on point! I also really enjoyed having a peek at the fantastic designer handbags and at the end of the night MyBag were generous enough to treat bloggers to some fab goodies, including a beautiful nude and black Ted Baker handbag! I'm definitely in the mood for London Fashion Week this September and I've definitely got my eye on a few handbags for my Christmas wish list this year! And remember, if you'd love to see more of what I get up to in the city, just add my Snapchat: sweetsevenfive.
