I only ordered a dress for myself, the rest is xmas presents. I notice there's still afew bits left and Im wondering if the bags will come down again? Has anyone received any of their shopping yet and, did you think you got a bargain?
Returned velvet jacket (colour too Tally-Ho and fabric too thin), black cardi (how can you get a basic black cardi wrong? by putting a strip for the buttons that looks like a shoelace), velvet skirt (quite nice but not £32 worth nice). Undecided on boyfriend cardi, it's a lovely rose colour and I have things it would match, not certain it's worth £39.
I'm keeping a couple of Cosmopolitan tops, a ruffle front top and a boyfriend cardi. Rest has gone back, but wil keep an eye and see if the Breton tunic comes down further, the berry colour was lovely but not for £48.
Keeping Copenhagen tunic. Sending back Notting Hill dress as it's too big and the rose boyfriend cardi as it's too thick thought it would be fine and drapey, also not worth the money. Their sizing is v hit and miss tunic is a 16 and just fits, but dress is massive?!?
Keeping straightleg jeans and a basic crew neck tee in a gorgeous rose colour.
Have returned the ruffle top in white, which I was v disappointed with. Ordered one in a size 10 which is my normal Boden size, it was HUGE on me and also way too low cut, you need an ample bosum for this top! Also the fabric was quite thin and showed off all my lumps and bumps.
Also think I have managed to bag the elegant velvet jacket in the aubergine, on a return, waiting for a confirmation email of the order from Boden so fingers crossed!
kept dresses for me and most of the other bits i ordered for the children but the blue girls duffle coat is going back as its ugly and so is a horrible scratchy grey and blue spotty hat, scarf and gloves set. i've had plenty of lambswool sets from boden before that have been lovely and soft but this one isn;t. i want to order a couple more dresses and a pea coat for myself but i can;t until after xmas.
I've kept the blue ruffle dress, fits very nicely if neatly, and seems warm. Also the colourblock milano coat, kept the 10 and returned the 12. Also returned is the deep aqua cashmere cardi, it fitted well, was lovely and soft but... not quite the right colour for me. It was a lovely colour but too green for me.
Kept the stripy knitted dress - I love it. Would order another but they are all too similar. So comfy. Kept stripy scarf - also lovely and cosy Sent back boyfriend cardi and some tops that I can't remember. Have ordered a new lot
