Addicted to saving money at Bicester Village…plain and simple

Bicester Village is my kryptonite. I’ve written about this fashion heaven before (actually I’ve written a few times about my enjoyable afternoons and sometimes weekends shopping here). However, I thought it high time to remind you all once again that a retail escape lies within our reach.

Last weekend, I was in a bit of a panic as I’d been invited away for a big event that required some elegant attire and I wasn’t “feeling it” with my current closet. That being said, I was also looking at my American Express bill and coming to the realisation that a quick trip down Bond Street would probably lead to bailiffs visiting my house. So of course Bicester popped into my head. Visions of 90% off signs in designer windows made my heart leap out of my chest with joy. I don’t believe I’ve ever left this designer mecca without at least three bags in hand. It’s impossible. One look at their designer store selection and I think you’ll understand why. The Alexander McQueen store alone had me wondering what I had done to deserve such marvellous discounts.

Bottom line, Bicester saved my bacon… and cash. So I suppose this is a bit of thank you letter to the shopping streets of Bicester to say “You’re simply the best.” Oh, and Mr. FFG says thanks for the super fabulous high heels I managed to pick up while in residence..I think he’s beginning to wonder how he ended up with a girl that’s four inches taller than him in towering heels.
