Velo - Zalando Great Plains Skirt

I really like this look that I wore yesterday, it's quite smart and more thought out than normal. I've been looking for a blouse to layer under jumpers and have the collar poking out for ages and this ASOS one fits the bill perfectly. I had also just come back from the hair dresses so my hair is looking much better than normal. I need to have a hairdresser friend who can do my hair before work for me every morning, and someone to do my make up and someone to make my breakfast....

The Skirt was provided by Zalando which has a HUGE selection of items from brands like Oasis, Darling and Vero Moda.Its from a brand called Great Plains which I've not heard of before but a lot of their stuff reminds me of Whistles and French Connection. I really want the dress with the same print now, aren't the bicycles cute? It's such a light and silky material and I like that it comes to my knees which makes it acceptable for work.

If you sign up to the newsletter on Zalando you get £5 discount off your first order and they also have free delivery. I wish they had a paid delivery option so you could get your parcel the next day but I suppose a 3-5 day wait isn't too bad when you don't have to pay. I love the fact that you can buy from so many brands on one site and also avoid the £4 delivery fees that a lot of stores charge.

I'm off to Birmingham for the weekend now which I'm really looking forward to. I hope you all have fun this Easter weekend and eat as much chocolate as you possibly can! Creme eggs are perfectly acceptable for breakfast on Easter Sunday, right?

  2. I only discovered Great Plains yesterday, was on Secret Sales & noticed that they had a lot listed, all with 'sold out'. Nice to find out what it's all about! A dress would definitely be lush! Have a fab Easter!

  13. Love the skirt! And you're right - Great Plains is part of the same group as French Connection IIRC.
