Contrary to how it can seem... i am not 'Big' on the shopping thing.
I like nice stuff and i love a bargain, but my patience for actual shopping, is limited.
This is Bicester Village - Oxfordshire.
A Designer Outlet Village for people who like Designer Clothes...
It is stuffed with overpriced, overdesigned, clothing BUT it can harbour a few Gems.
The place itself is satisfying scenic, like a Coastal Town on the facade. It has a holiday feel to it.
Even on a wet windy day though, it is packed with people.
Of course, here is the Jewel in the Crown.
And if i sit in a certain Coffee Shop i can see the store door with a cappucino in hand.
lovely, lovely, lovely - massive discounts on lots of old designs and styles.
Today, they even had an extra 25% the already discounted products!!
I only bought one small thing, though.
I may love a bargain but i am still fairly thrifty. I don't like to buy stuff just for the sake of parting with my money. The joy of being here and *mooching* was really what i needed for myself on this day.
Treating myself to time away from the chaos...
So, i'm not going to show n tell everything i bought BUT
2 Leather bracelets reduced from £59.00 to £4.00 - 1 for me and 1 gifted to my Sister.
This bargain crazy cotton top / dress thing. £10.00 and worth every penny for it's bright cheeriness.
And i bought 6 giant teacups as i'm desperate for Cereal Bowls!
They are a usefully hewge size and polka dotty....
and were 50% off.
I came to the conclusion today that:
Days off are good.
Bargains are also good, and necessary
Pretty clothes make me happy.
