‘What do you think?’ I asked Husband, turning around. I was showing him my newly purchased white mini skirt. Yes, I know. But honestly, it sounds a lot worse than it looks.
'Oh, lovely!' He said. 'Don’t forget your tennis racket.'
But I am happy. My mother, my child and I went to Bicester village yesterday. A shopping paradise. Of course, shopping with a child is a nightmare. Simply impossible to make any sensible decision choosing an outfit if you are constantly being dragged, pulled and talked to.
Thus the white mini skirt.
But...I like it. I have recently decided, glancing through the Boden catalogue delivered to my house, that I have to aggressively fight against the middle age suburban style. It is creeping up on me, circling around, and tightening the circle until I won’t be able to get out. I am not that old yet. A white miniskirt is exactly what I need.
But this is not what I wanted to tell you about today. I wanted to tell you about the Agent Provocateur underwear shop. Some of you might have heard of Agent Provocateur. If you have not, then you must quickly look it up.
Whenever I get to Bicester village, I always look forward to stepping inside this particular shop. I would love to claim that my lingerie drawer is filled with AP items. But, truthfully, I am more of a CK girl myself. Somewhere in between AP and M&S.
But, I still like to look. You see, Agent Provocateur is like art to me. And it is not just the underwear that is attractive in that shop. The shop assistants are always stunning, if a bit overly sexy for a daytime shopping experience. They walk around in fishnet stockings, very short dresses that look like nurse outfits only pink, and black pom-pom mules. I can only imagine an Agent Provocateur store opening in Baku. What an amazing treat would that be for Azeri guys! They would be queuing up all around the Caspian sea.
Anyway, just wanted to share this information with my male readers ( not just Azeri ones) in case they ever visit London or somewhere else where there is an AP store. Do not miss out! Make sure you go in, if not to purchase a (expensive) set for your wife or girlfriend, then at least to drool at the shop assistants.
You are very welcome.
