...especially when it means bunking off to go to Bicester Village with the BFC for the opening of a British Designer Collective store. Stocking labels like Erdem, Marcus Lupfer and Todd Lynn, it popped up today and closes 7th May so you better be quick.

"Right then everyone, let's get shopping!!" said Erin O'Connor as she declared it officially open. As if we needed encouraging...
Here's the lovely Susie Bubble snapping up bargains, including a gorgeous wafty Emma Cook nude silk shirt.

I headed straight for the House of Holland rail and would have bought the entire "Sex, Lies, & Volleyball" collection...if only they'd had my size.

It gave me superhappy flashbacks to Henry showing this collection at Fashion East's SS'08 show, which was in such a rundown warehouse at The Old Truman Brewery that big clumps of ceiling paint were flaking off onto the runway as Agy opened the show to a blaring soundtrack of Guns and Roses and a madly cheering audience. OMG it was a proper moment.

Anyway...back in the room Lulu!

So I bought these black and white cuties by Atalanta Weller for House of Holland SS'09...
Here they are in action on the runway. How happy and summery was that show? And how freezing and rainy was today?

Dont care, cant wait to wear my new shoes! Will probs get frostbite though.
