After my WWKD post earlier in the month, I couldn’t resist popping back to Bicester Village for a mooch and a browse. How could anyone resist bargains in the sunshine of a summer morning?!
First stop is always Mulberry – check out these pastel beauties in the window! What a gorgeous selection of Willows!
I seriously lusted after these heather Lilys – I reckon they’re a pretty similar shade to Pantone colour of the year, but a bit more vibrant. What do you reckon…?
And these pretty little Alexas! Swoon! An Alexa is definitely still on my wish-list!
Got to love the Bicester bears – a familiar friend to any frequent visitor to the retail village!
Couldn’t resist a snap of these gorgeous Fendi Baguette bags – you can find some real classics at Bicester, usually in limited edition colours like these bright quilted versions!
In the British Designers Collective pop up you can find some amazing brands – including Roksanda Ilincic, Emilia Wickstead and Jonathan Saunders (Kate Middleton fans take note!).
Pucker up for an amazing Lulu Guinness icon – I’m totally lusting after one of these now, I think it’ll have to be my next big bag purchase! There were some Perspex ones like this, and also some leather zipped versions too!
As it’s summer, the village was decked out with some absolutely gorgeous blooms. So beautiful – the entire village is such a wonderful place to shop and hang out! There were even these gorgeous pillows laid out on the benches and chairs!
It’s not just high end designer stores – there are some really great high street stores here with some fab discounts – up to 70% or more. Reiss and Jaeger are two of my favourites.
I realised I’d never been in the Chloe store before and I’ve been seriously missing out! Cute, preppy and feminine, there were so many amazing items in here it was hard to leave!
It wasn’t all pastels for summer – Jimmy Choo had some amazing neon shades to channel the current trend! And, sadly, I found a pair of gold glitter Cosmics on sale, which are the same pair that the FedEx truck ran over last year… I had to leave them on the shelf but it was hard work – it’s just not to be!
Anyway, I’ve been saving the best for last! A visit to one of my favourite boutiques – Anya Hindmarch! I love to stop in and take a look at the gorgeous quirky range – and I had an ulterior motive this time, as I was hoping to see if there was anything in there that my darling husband might be persuaded to buy me for our upcoming anniversary present…
And there was! I’m not going to reveal it yet, but I am going to give you guys a clue – the anniversary gift for four years is fruit and flowers… Can you guess?
