We were recently invited to Bicester village, the amazing designer shopping outlet we have blogged about before. The marketing team invited some of their favourite bloggers to go shopping for the day and we got to hang out with the lovely Isabelleoc, one of our favourite fashion bloggers. After an easy journey from central London on the Shopping Express, we enjoyed a great day picking up designer bargains.
The marketing team at Bicester are passionate about what they do and are impressive in their fashion knowledge and don't see Bicester as an outlet, more as 'designer shopping in the country' (it's on the edge of the Cotswolds). They say they have new intakes of merchandise all the time, but the best time to shop is before the high St shops go on sale, so that would be about now. So if you still have some Christmas shopping to do for your more discerning relatives, we can highly recommend a trip.
If you are feeling bit down in the dumps fashion wise, in the new year, why not try out their free personal shopping service. Before you visit, simply sign up for an morning or afternoon slot and you will be taken shopping by an experienced stylist, who will help find you the perfect outfit and encourage you to try out new styles and colours, all completely free!
Bicester Village is currently celebrating their 15th anniversary and have collaborated with Paul Smith, Alice Temperley and Cath Kidston, to design £10 canvas bags. £6 from every bag sale will go to the Great Ormond St Hospital Children's Charity.
