It's been a busy few weeks, hence the absence (sorry loves)..and to make up for what was a fashion-less time, what better way to get back in the game than to SHOP?!
After a ye old country pub meal I headed to Bicester for a quick peruse - Bicester Village is a designer outlet shopping centre near Oxford (about an hour by car from London). A must for all fashion knowledagbles. Here you will find last season's collections at attractive prices. And since my last visit they've added many more formidable brands such as Prada, Rupert Sanderson, Valentino, Jimmy Choo and most excitingly CELINE (my unrequited love) to their list. Other favourites include Marni, Vivienne Westwood, Alexander McQueen, Dior, DvF and Burberry. On this occasion I just couldn't resist nabbing a YSL downtown tote in navy..less than half price. If that doesn't tempt you I don't know what will. You like?
My must-dos for Bicester:
1. You will need your sensible fashion head and hawk eyes to sieve out the fashion graveyard from the investment classics.
2. Pick up a Prada handbag at more than 40% off. Think Selfridges sale without the rampaging.
3. Head to Starbucks, grab a novel from their huge collection and get comfy on the sofa.
3. Head to Marni for the epic racks of signature statement necklaces and imagine its your own private collection!
4. GO TO CELINE. DO IT NOW.
