Win! Win! Win!
I’m not shy about professing my love for Bicester Village. My Luella sweater, Ralph Lauren tote and Maxmara brothel creepers from my last trip have barely had a day’s rest. The Bicester bods have decided to spread the love by offering up a £100 voucher to one lucky reader of this blog to spend on their next visit to Bicester Village (tip: it’ll be well worth it, Gucci opens tomorrow).
Just tell me in the comments in under 50 words what your favourite Bicester Village brand is and why and leave your contact deets or check back in a week to find out if you have won. Closing date is Friday 9th October.
UPDATE! Congrats to Lynsay whose love for Vivienne Westwood wins her a £100 Bicester Village voucher. Thank you everyone for entering!

My favourite Bicester brand is Agent Provocateur. Great underwear gives a girl confidence whether your outfit's Prada or Primark: my bargain AP vintage style bras and pastel coloured frillies cheer me up even when we're heading towards winter!

My favourite shops to hunt for Bicester bargains were always Paul Smith/Anya Hindmarch…but due to a new arrival appearing in Jan, I think my devotion may swap to Bonpoint. Unless I can persuade the other half that I "must" have an Anya changing bag.

It has to be Luella. The store makes me feel like a kid in a sweet shop. The candy colours, playful shapes and whimsical detailing are even more satisfying that a sugar hit. Best of all, Bicester allows me to snap up Luella treasures at (almost) pick ’n’ mix prices.

I was going to say Luella, but my favorite has to be Temperly. I love Alice T's flowy, dreamy style and I could easily buy her whole collection every season if I had the money!

It has to be Calvin Klein, only yesterday i bought this really nice side bag…for my mum!as i have loads of my own,their styles cater for all and guess what they do Baby Calvin Boxers – Very Cute!! Something to buy for the future :p xx

Dior. Why? Well not because I have ever brought anything from this shop, but because no shopping to the fabulous Bicester Village is complete without walking around in awe of such fantastic style and glamour. From the dresses which could set you back £7000 to the wonderful shoes and at times, even a motorcycle helmet! After all, what is the base of such a fantastic shopping location such as Bicester Village if it not such flamboyant, fabulous, stylish and good value clothing! This is the ‘meaning’ of Bicester Outlet Village in all its glory!

Even though I can't win this (lol)I would find it hard to have a favourite because I work with all the brands and love them all..but I do have a leaning towards Temperley, DVF and I think Gucci will be up in there in the big three. Good luck to everyone who enters! Love reading your replies….

I'm definitely a fan of Zadig et Voltaire – the jumper I bought from there is my go-to and I LOOOVE it. It looks fab, the colour is divine and their stuff does not go out of style.

I love Bicester! =D Can't wait to go again and that voucher would be very useful!
My favourite brand? (so many lovelies to choose from!) Mulberry, for the most gorgeous bags, and a whole range of other wonderful items, from clothes to shoes and beautiful scarves. All at bargain prices!

My favourite Bicester shop has to be Mulberry. The gorgeous, buttery soft leather bags in gorgeous jewel colours, muted tans and classic blacks just call to me whenever I visit – hence the fact that I now own several Mulberry pieces! And Bicester stocks their shoes now too…sigh!

Just one? OK then. When I want to feel truly inspired, Vivienne Westwood's designs do it for me everytime. What do I want to be today – a pirate? A princess? Or perhaps a combination (swashbucking royalty?). Whatever my mood, Dame Viv's originality at credit crunch prices equals genius shopping!

If I was lucky enough to win the voucher it would mean that I would have to put myself out and actually go there, instead of sitting at home moaning that it is too far away from where I live and it would stop me going green with envy everytime someone tweets or blogs about their purchases, jealous moi?

My favourite Bicester brand is Salvatore Ferragamo. I always always lusted after their shoes but never thought I could afford them, Bicester made it possible for me to have not one but two pairs! A feat for a lowly student like me :) Please let me win so I can feed my Ferragamo shoe habit. xxx

Oh gosh what a question. I love it all even Carluccios.
If I had to pick a favourite it would be Anya Hindmarch because I'm saving up for a treat from there and a proper Bicester shop.

My favourite shop? Luella. I've always loved her aesthetic, British heritage with a cutesy twist, and her collections never fail to make me smile. I remember they opened a pop up shop in Christmas 2007, and I saw a bag for £99, which I was too indecisive to buy at the time. I decided to think about it and come back later, and all the bags had gone! I almost kicked myself. Luckily I went back a year later and they'd opened a permanent store, where I was able to buy an even better bag for a little bit more. It's patent with kooky charms and enough pockets for all my stuff. It's my favourite shop, with all the pink packaging and cute stickers, and at these prices, any girl can feel a bit special.

I love, love, love Bicester Village! One brilliant shop is Ted Baker- last time I was at Bicester I picked up two amazing tops- fab designs, only last season and bargain price..but there's so many good shops..difficult to pick a winner!

My favorite is Alexander McQueen he undoubtedley is an icon and too fashion forward for this world. His styles always manage to spice up any wardrobe even his accessories give any outfit an edge. Love him!!

For me it's D&G – Beautifully cut, stylish and sleek, great quality plus Italian chic!

My favourite brand at Bicester is Matthew Williamson. It instantly gives me a mood lift when I go in there, the beautiful colours, textures and designs are to me what fashion should be about. Also, the staff are incredibly friendly and if I was lucky enough to win this competition I would certainly hope to spend some time in there : )

Mulberry; timeless and chic handbags made of amazing leather. Mulberry Bicester is a great place to go for a bargain!
6 October, 2009 @ 11:39 am
Definately Church's. Im a guy and I am addicted to shoes. Here I can find my favourite brogues to affordable prices! Love it!
8 October, 2009 @ 11:28 pm
How can I choose a favourite? So many places to feed my addiction, so little time! If it came down to it, I would have to say Smythson; I can get myself a lovely leather book to write all my wish lists in, then have it put in one of their lovely nile blue boxes, all tied up with beautiful navy grosgrain ribbon. ooh – I'm getting excited just thinking of all my lovely future purchases…

Ralph Lauren..I loves what they offer in the woman section, man section and even the kid's store. Just pop into 2 of the stores and you can get all you want for the whole of the family..but who can resist other stores in Bicester Village. I can spend the whole day (oopss that may not be enough) going from one store to another.
