As we head to Liverpool for our next Fashion Rental Studio we could think of no better person to as to spill the tea on what not to miss in than Hannah Spilsbury. One of our OG Loaners Hannah, 23 content creator and a lover of all things pink spills the tea on what not to miss in Liverpool. Over to you, Hannah...


Liverpool is a hot spot for fashion, bars, shops and everything in between, it's almost like a miniature version of London.

In terms of fashion, Liverpool has so much to offer, charity shops and vintage stores being my GO TO shops and if we’re talking online I LOVE to use LOANHOOD rental app, providing pieces that I can rent for a fraction of the price AND being sustainable in the process, what else can you ask for!

One of my favourite places to go for a drink is the Merchant, this is a small idyllic bar just off Bold Street that has the coolest vibes ever and attracts very unique people. And, for those coffee drinkers I LOVE Bold Street Coffee, it’s a small inviting coffee shop that provides all the vibes and is located on the famous Bold Street.

As a fashion fanatic, I take a lot of inspiration from my city. Merseyside also has a huge creative culture and a new music magazine called Bido Lito. This simply introduces all of the fashion and music vibes you need all in one place.

Liverpool is a vibrant city full of high-spirited individuals all hoping to make the city more safe and inclusive. As an openly gay woman, Liverpool has definitely given me the confidence to be the self loving, assertive individual I am and without this support I would not be living my life being my true self.
