Not had a good look yet, but I got some great bargains last year.

ChablisLover Mon 24-Dec-12 20:42:14

It's still not as good as last year yet.

Am holding out for later on in the week for proper reductions.

In other words the coat I'm after is still only 50% off - still not discounted enough for me.

Thanks for this, quite a few nice things at 75% off, pleased with my bargains!

knitknack Tue 25-Dec-12 13:20:27

Thank you! I bought a dress, a top and some trousers :D

HalleLoujainHomelandWonderland Wed 26-Dec-12 11:47:24

What should I buy?

SilverSixpence Wed 26-Dec-12 14:42:45

I bought a couple of jersey tops and dresses, thought the price was great for basics like plain skirts and trousers.

TrillsCarolsOutOfTune Wed 26-Dec-12 14:49:12

I've ordered this Canberra dress and this Selina dress

You can also get cashback via topcashback - only 5% but every little helps. Click through from topcashback to the site where you are buying stuff, the money tracks and goes into your topcashback account, after a little while you can either have it sent to your bank account or (if you don't want to tell them your bank details) turned into an Amazon voucher which is then emailed to you.

(if you want to sign up but you don't like me use [ instead of the link above)

I like the look of Selina but am petite with big norks so not sure it would work. I love Top Cashback btw.

Trills Wed 26-Dec-12 14:57:01

The Selina with big boobs would definitely be a special-occasion dress

HalleLoujainHomelandWonderland Wed 26-Dec-12 14:58:04

Probably not then!

Might by some jersey tops though.

HalleLoujainHomelandWonderland Wed 26-Dec-12 15:01:14

Am quite liking Tilly and the Isabelle Jersey twist one.

I like this one but think the norks might ruin it Romeo and Juliet.

Trills Wed 26-Dec-12 16:12:42

I think that dress would look like a sack no matter whether you had boobs or not (sorry)

HalleLouja Wed 26-Dec-12 17:15:49

I know but it looks so pretty. Will avoid.

SilverSixpence Wed 26-Dec-12 17:26:30

Don't think the prints are that great this time round

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Wed 26-Dec-12 19:28:46

Bought several dresses last year and have worn and worn them for work and just spent £80 on 3 dresses and 2 tops because they are a steal at some of the prices. Some other bits that I wanted are out of stock sad GPs pricing strategy is just bizarre. confused

SilverSixpence Mon 31-Dec-12 11:50:04

Got my GP order - very pleased! Placed a massive order blush so i could have a nice post baby wardrobe, I just hope everything will fit!

Selina dress - quite dressy but very comfy and think it will be flattering, I can even squeeze my baby belly into it and it doesn't look bad!
Shrimpton shirt - nice smart shirt with concealed buttons for breastfeeding
Nouran top like the Toast overpriced viscose t-shirts but much cheaper. Lovely shade of red, comfortable and flattering.
Isabelle dress comfy day dress, and stretchy enough for breastfeeding
[ sweet autumn shirt dress]] nice print, not sure if i like it enough to keep as its "only" half price!
maxi skirt comfortable, lined (doesn't do up at the moment though!)
[ Maxi dress]] doesn't show up in normal sale section mysteriously, good basic for dressing up or down.

I think that's everything! There was some other stuff i liked which isn't on offer, probably just as well grin

SilverSixpence Mon 31-Dec-12 11:51:00

oops link fails

maxi dress
sweet autumn shirt dress

mirpuppet Mon 31-Dec-12 12:29:00

Nice stuff.

Anyone know a place to see and try on items in London? My goal in the New year is to try before I buy thus reducing time at post office and keeping unflattering bargains

libertychick Mon 31-Dec-12 12:35:27

John Lewis and House of Fraser both have Great Plains clothing so you can try on there.

SilverSixpence Mon 31-Dec-12 13:29:35

Hm tried on the maxi dress, it is far too long hmm shame as the fit is otherwise perfect

PipCarrier Mon 31-Dec-12 14:39:13

What is their sizing like? I think I had a top from there years ago and it was slightly on the generous size - am I right?

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Mon 31-Dec-12 15:34:17

Yes - sizing is generous.

My order arrived today;

Penelope knit is a keeper as is Jack knit to wear for work.

Canberra dress is also staying but I'm sending back this because it was a very peculiar shape on me confused

I really want the Mae wrap skirt for work so hopefully it might come back in stock or come up on Brandalley.

mirpuppet Mon 31-Dec-12 15:51:19

Thanks ladies. Also are the dresses as short as they seem on the models? I'm 5'4 and like knee length.

MissBeehivingUnderTheMistletoe Mon 31-Dec-12 15:58:03

I'm 5'5 and they're knee length on me.

mirpuppet Mon 31-Dec-12 16:50:05

Thanks again. May break my rule and order on line.
