Sometimes it just feels like a brand gets you and your dressing needs and just nails it.
That's how i feel about Great Plains. Each season they drop a collection bomb on me that literally blows me away. If i still worked in a smart office type environment then there would be even more on my wish list. But their day dresses, pretty tops and printed bottoms are also pretty darn amazing for day to day wear to.
I have a few pieces from Great plains (which is French Connections sister company) and the quality never fails me.
And when the weather is as sucky as it has been these past few weeks, i can't help but look longingly at the new A/W pieces.
Here's what i'm loving
The 'Wear Me Everywhere' Trouser
Comfy and stylish equals my favourite type of clothing.
The 7/8 lentgh is my favourote cut of trouser, showing off that little bit of ankle can be so chic.Plus amazing for showcasing an amazing pair of shoes.
Another plus point, can be worn with flats or heels, dressed up or down.
The Interesting Sweater
This graphic quilted geometric sweater is just beyond mu jumper dreams. Intersting cut, textured and in my favourite seasonal colours: grey and fig..
I need both!
With the trousers above, skinny jeans or a black faux leather skirt, these are so versatile i wonder how i've lived my life without them so far ;)
The Pretty Front and Back Top
Business at the front and a little bit party at the back, with the sassy transparent pleated backing, this would look so good with some black coated skinny jeans for a mock gothic meets Victorian look that is very much a key element for this a/w. Not one for the Victorian frills and lace usually, this is just the right amount of faff for me. Kudos for being totally on point for the season without looking like its just walked off set of a Victorian period drama.
The OTK Boot Of The Season
Oh yes this winter i will be conquering the over the knee boot. Tried it last year but couldn't find the pair.I just kept looking like a Pirates of the Caribbean extra. Swashbuckling is just not my style.
But i think i may just found the ones in these.
Plus they will be so versatile. Pair with jeans, tights and a dress or tights and skirts. Yes ,yes and yes!
I hazard a guess that OTK boots will be everywhere this a/w.
I'm in, you in?
The Perfect Autumn Dress
This is what pulled me in. I saw it, and i fell hard and fast.
The sleeves, the sash tie all make for a pretty wonderful dress.
I would live in this!
Is there anything you've seen for Autumn/Winter (or fall for my transatlantic friends) that you've fallen head over heels for?
Do share! I'd love to have some more pieces to ponder over!
