Ashford Designer Outlet

I took a trip to the Designer Outlet in Ashford the other day with a good friend of mine in the hopes of bagging ourselves some great discounts. I've found in the past that designer outlets can be very hit or miss; there are either boatloads of fantastic deals or a rubbish amount. I'm happy to say Ashford delivered!

The highlights for me were Superdry, Yankee Candle, Kurt Geiger, Ted Baker and Links of London. I picked up a few things, the gem of the bunch being this beautiful gold 'Sweetie Essence' ring from Links of London. It is a very simple design, a classic piece.

I bought the matching bracelet over two years ago in Harrods. I was an employee there at the time and as the store had grossed £1 billion the previous retail year, the staff were kindly treated to an increased discount of 50%. Making the £260 solid gold bracelet a fantastic £130! I haven't taken it off since and it has stayed in perfect condition. I had considered getting the matching items for quite some time but could never really justify spending the money - especially seeing as I had left Harrods and did not have the same discount anymore.

However, at Ashford the ring, normally priced at £240 was a steal at £84! How could I resist?!

So the Designer Outlet at Ashford is somewhere I expect to visit again sometime in the hope of making some more great purchases! Maybe even the Sweetie Essence necklace if they have it.....
