Bargain of the Day - yes I am getting obsessed with current season reductions...

and the reason being - they are so good!  With lots of sales having already finished, the ones that are still going, are offering great reductions of up to 70 or even 75% off! 

The good old British High Street  may look like a jumble sale of reduced stock but at least online you get to view each item clearly and don't have to knock other shoppers out of the way for that "killer" bargain!  So as long as these sales continue, I shall continue with my top picks of the best reduced items currently on offer.

We are supposed to be a country coming (or already out) of recession, but everybody I speak to is still feeling the pinch, which for the shopaholics amongst us, is like being caught up in a fashion drought! But do not fear, even if your pennies are severely pinched (as mine now are) you can still afford this fab Maxi Dress from Great Plains...
the dress also comes in red and is reduced from £55 to £16.50 Great Plains

For those of you that don't know, Great Plains is the slightly more grown up and slightly cheaper sister of French Connection, so you can expect the same quality.  Sadly a lot of things (including this dress) are sold out in an XL, as it is obviously a site which is popular with the size 16 fraternity and I don't blame them, I could list so much from this brands summer collection that I love and would buy, but you skinny chicks will be OK.  As its Jersey, I am seriously tempted to send for the Large!

There is a gorgeous navy and white stripe jersey dress also £16.50 which sits amongst other pretty and colourful summer dresses and some more lovely really cheap Maxi's.  If you are looking for wardrobe basics, they have Jersey Harems at £10.50 and ruched ankle leggings for £6.00! 

This is one brand which will be right up there on my fashion radar for future sales purchases, I am gutted I didn't look at it sooner. The whole collection is on sale at Great Plains do check it out.

Have you bought anything from Great Plains before, are you familiar with the brand? I bought a dress from GP ages ago, I think from House of Fraser (I never wore it, it is up for my blog sale) but I am desperate for this Maxi, so if anyone has seen it instore in an XL, please let me know!  I have even looked on ebay and guess what? Some sellers have this up for Buy it Now at £27!



  1. Sorry I don't know much about the sizing - but the style looks quite roomy and not too clingy - I'd give the large a try if I were you.

  2. WOW!!! Double WOW!! those are great deals ... I wish I lived across the Pond ;( ... HHL

  3. have added Great Plains to my list of places to visit for bargains - thanxoffly for the tip!

  4. I love the style, the colors and the price of that maxi dress. Great find. I wonder, is it available in the US?

  5. I would try the large,Ive bought GP trousers in the past and theyre roomy(bigger than French Connection).
