HAUL | Summer bag by Kate Spade NY

New handbag alert... After Mr P and I had a weekend in Oxford for the Mini factory tour it wouldn't be right not to call into Bicester Village on our way home.

We arrived early as I knew it would get busy and I didn't want to waste good shopping time queuing for a parking space. I have been to a few outlet villages in the UK before and they are a bit hit and miss. I was pretty happy with the selection of shops at Bicester, most of them out of budget for me but I did find some treasure in Kate Spade. When I say out of budget, there was Prada, Dior, DVF, Burberry. Not brands you would buy everyday.

Kate Spade bags are hard to find in the UK making them a little bit exclusive, but that doesn't have to mean super expensive. I just don't think it has been fully stocked yet and there is only a couple of stores. A friend Mrs W told me that sometimes TKmaxx sometimes stock the brand so I will keep my eyes open for that.

The KS store at Bicester doesn't stock any clothes it is purely accessories and they had lots to choose from and as it was a Bank Holiday weekend they had 20% off handbags..so it was unlikely I would walk away empty handed.

I have been looking for a little messenger bag for a while and this bag was perfect and green! This isn't going to be a bag for all seasons so maybe I should have bought black but I didn't need another black bag! 

It is wide enough to get my everyday purse in, phone, house & car keys, only down side is there is not zip up pocket inside which I usually keep my lipstick and mirror in. So I will always have to make sure remember to fully close the main zip.

I best go plan some outfits to wear with my new bag, it really is this bright!

Kate packs each purchase into a gift box and lovely carrier bags!
I will need to head back to Kate soon there was lovely jewellery and scarves to purchase next time. Best start saving.

My top 5 affordable stores at Bicester
Kate Spade - Amazing bags, jewellery and customer service was pretty outstanding
Joules - Really good prices but not massive size selections
White Company - not seen an outlet store before and there were some really good bargains
Ralph Lauren - lovely items perfect for summer
Mulberry - lots of choice - even had classic oldies but goodies but still £££
