Gap Manchester 'Back to Blue' Blogger Style Challenge

Picture 5 is my styling attempt!
Tonight I attended a Blogger Event at the Gap store in St Ann's Square, Manchester.

Steve, the Store Manager invited us in to see the new collections and to style up an outfit based on the 'back to blue' theme.

Back to blue is very much the focus of AW13 at Gap, with the collections containing staple wardrobe pieces that can be mixed and matched. I decided to keep my styled outfit quite simple so that it could be worn for a variety of occasions, the legging jeans and Chanel style boucle jacket, paired with a chunky knit, brown suede boots and accessorized with a statement berry scarf and animal print bag.

Each of the Bloggers in attendance had the opportunity to style an outfit and once they have been appraised by the team at Gap the winner will have the chance to wear their outfit for real! *fingers crossed!*

What I really liked about the event was being able to put the outfit together and get a feel for the clothes and have a think about how they could be incorporated into my own wardrobe. Everything was really high quality and I genuinely loved a lot of what we saw, it made me remember why I love Gap as it is on-trend items but with a classic, quality feel to them.

Gap is not necessarily somewhere I would have remembered to go with it being slightly off the beaten track of the Manchester Arndale, I will definitely be making the effort to pop in from time to time though as I really was very impressed by what I saw and I think if you are looking to make a staple wardrobe buy such as coats, jumpers, jeans or even bags, they are a really good destination for that kind of thing.

Also, Gap are one of the key partners of Vogue Fashion's Night Out, taking place next Thursday 10th October in Manchester! Gap have taken on the task of producing the official T-Shirts for the event, with profits going to Save the Children. They will be highly sought after pieces I am sure!

T-Shirts are priced at £18 and will be available from Gap and other retailers from Monday - be sure you go and pick one up if you are coming down on Thursday as there are opportunities to have your t-shirt customised at some of the participating stores!

Thank you again to Gap for a great event :o)
