I love lots of hte stuff this season which is unusual as I've gone for a few years now withuot liking more than one or two bits. Just bought the wardour dress in ivory and the pencil skirt in silver both of which are lovely.

I had a huge package today smile Ordered the:

Classic Denim shirt - loved it! Fitted and flattering shape, good fabric, finally a great boden piece after all the left-overs from clearance!
Essential long sleeve tee - okay enough to keep
Printed cotton skirt - very average, but I liked the spring prints
Skater dress - returning for sizing down; doesnt look as great as in the pictures though.
Ledbury dress - flattering style, but hated the prints/colours

Nothing remotely good in mini boden..

And what's going on with the colours? None of them ever make sense to me. There's a sort of wackiness here that I can't get on board with. That hotpotch breton tee is alright though.

I can't find much I like at all, there's a lot that they've tweaked the colours on from Spring '12. They've lost their way IMO. Same with mini Boden too.

That new knitwear is terrifically overpriced.
But then they know people will purchase it.
£79 for a cotton cardi.

Holly I wouldn't wear the Amelie dress myself....but I know it would suit my mother....she's in her late 50s, if that makes any difference? If YOU like it, go for it! HTH. smile

I don't mind Boden every once in a while, but a bit narked after an expensive winter coat didn't live up to it's price tag.

But, the worst thing is how they always sell out so fast and take forever to restock. Every damn thing I like, and this happens, so I just stopped visiting the site. It is obvious some stuff sells well so why don't they just get their shit together and have it more of it on stand by?

Still, it's one of the best sites for customer reviews, unlike Joules who decided to scrap them cos they didn't like the fucking truth getting out.

Don't know what I was thinking when I ordered from the spring preview confused.
Wrap jersey top - totally wrong shape for me shows bumps I don't have wink and exposes norks.
Favourite cropped cardigan - ordered a hideous colour.
Linen shirt dress - looks like prison issue on me.
Skinny jeans - ordered identical colour to a pair I already have.
Chinos - huge on me for some reason.

However I do like -
Skinny ankle skimmer jeans
Off duty sweatshirt

Still waiting for Lightweight boat neck.
Thought I'd ordered something for DH but it must have been a figment of my imagination.

What do people think of the Amelie dress (not in black), would it suit a curvy size 16 (that'll be me)?

MissBoPeep Wed 09-Jan-13 20:17:21

Very very little
Ordered some things in preiew and all gone back. The Adelaide dress and another similar style- forgotten name. All dreary in RL and too £££.

Have ordered a weekend jersey dress as an exchange and the 70s sandals.

Very disappointing selection IMO this season. Boring tops, the type which you can get anywhere, hopeless dresses and same old, same old, trousers.

Uniqlo have better T shirts, cotton crops etc or chinos for less than half the price.

Waiting upon:

off duty sweatshirt in blue
lightweight boatneck in mint
jersey shirt dress in navy (skeptical but curious/ free returns)

Eyeing:

pocket breton
long sleeved lightweight layering tee
sixties slingbacks
necklace dress

Might find inspiration when the reviews start rolling in.

Good basics that arrived today and all keepers:
Wideleg jeans
Printed jersey tunic in navy
Grecian t-shirt in navy (flattering for boobage but thin material so only really good for summer)

Awaiting delivery:
Rosebery dress in navy/grey spot.

That was all I fancied in October or whenever it was I ordered from the preview. Haven't had a new catalogue yet though, so expect I will fancy a few bits when that arrives.

Anyone have any feedback on whether the button back cardigan works with boobage?

iMe Wed 09-Jan-13 19:05:09

I have earmarked in my catalogue the following:
Curzon cardi in red
Fave crew neck cardi in gold
Colourblock points in sand
Lightweight crewneck/boatneck t
Canonbury skirt in rust/green
Longline maxi cardi (love it!)
Adelaide dress in navy (not sure?)
Pique mini
Guernsey jumper
Necklace dress

Hmmm that's rather a lot and no way can I afford it all and don't need half of it anyway. Waiting for good offers & will try some of it out.smile Bought little or nothing new last year so could justify some this year.

Rather hacked off to find the shirt I want is already on a 10 week delay in my size!

QuiteOldGal Wed 09-Jan-13 17:22:29

Well not a lot. The first page of accessories put me off, very garish handbag or maybe I'm just old smile

I see the usual suspects are there which I will probably buy at a very good discount like deal of the day or in the sale. I'm in no hurry as I have just purchased a few nice things in their recent sale.

MaureenShit Wed 09-Jan-13 17:07:34

bloody not much

GeorginaWorsley Wed 09-Jan-13 17:01:54

I actually do not want anything,and that is not like me at allgrin

PenfoldRocks Wed 09-Jan-13 15:10:03

Received and sent back
Off-duty sweatshirt (puts me in mind of an artists tunic)
Audrey jumper (too slim in the body for the shape of the sleeves and the neck)

LifeIsBetterInFlipFlops Wed 09-Jan-13 07:29:24

Red pouch bag
Swishy coatigan
Red Soho blouse...when I've dropped a size
Brogues
And the shade of blonde the model has...will discuss with my hairdresser.

fififolle Wed 09-Jan-13 07:16:54

Spring stuff is looking good! I've just ordered the guernsey jumper but tempted by other bits too.
I've had a look at the things you've ordered- all look great. The oversize t-shirt is very much like zara last year but hopefully better quality!

Scarlet76 Wed 09-Jan-13 06:51:56

Bored of the clearance crap, my attention has turned to new season stuff. Anybody received anything decent yet? Or what do you fancy trying?

I'm awaiting the blue spot shirt, the oversize stripe t-shirt, button back jumper in green and crop cashmere cardi in cream.
