email today to say mine is on its way- but not the Rainy day mac yet or the velvet coat.
So-waiting for the ruffle hem cord skirt, the mohair cardi, the uptown dress and the double layer dress.

Ordered far more than I can afford and maybe keep half of what comes if I like any of it.

anyone got anything yet?

JemimaMuddledUp Sun 24-Jul-11 20:46:21

Not yet, but I had an email on Friday saying that it had been despatched.

Mumelie Sun 24-Jul-11 20:49:18

Mine is on the way too. Uplifting top and wrap top....we'll see.....

princessdave Mon 25-Jul-11 15:24:10

Yes this morning at work via HDNL! Uplifting tee in the menthe spot, olive pattern wrap top, purple/grey feather print ravello top, the navy/red leopard print cardi and the grey/yellow print cord skirt (cord hem maybe?). I don't normally keep everything from my preview orders as discounts like COTD are much better later in the season but it's nice to have a look at a few things smile

EldonAve Mon 25-Jul-11 15:29:31

my rainyday mac is on it's way

polyhymnia Mon 25-Jul-11 16:32:35

My two orders also on the way. have ordered far too much - will need to be ruthless when they arrive. But then again, are bound to be things that either don't fit me or I don't like in RL.

chickenlickin Mon 25-Jul-11 16:52:38

ordered loads not arrived yet! Thinking may send most of kids stuff back as have just seen next autumn cat and some of the stuff looks very similar at a fraction of the price - well thats the plan!

katkitya Mon 25-Jul-11 18:56:17

I can't face winter clothes!! Where do you store it all?

JemimaMuddledUp Mon 25-Jul-11 19:03:52

Mine came today.

I ordered the Chelsea Boots for both boys, am hoping they are as tough as they look. They are a lot lighter in weight than I thought they might be which is making me worry about whether they are hardwearing enough, but then on the other hand that will presumably make them more comfortable to wear.

I also ordered the half zip fleeces for the boys, they are really soft and lovely.

Ordered the easy jersey dress for DD (not that she needs any more clothes!) and she loves it.

I didn't order anything for myself as I don't need anything. A lot of the women;s clothes seem to be very similar to previous season's clothes: skinny jeans, knitted tunics, long cardis, oilcloth satchels... and as they are still going strong there is no need to replace them.

Mumelie Mon 25-Jul-11 19:10:14

Mine came today grin - lots of stuff but all mostly too big and will be going back for exchange. Really liked the Perfect Cosy Parka and the Roma Trousers. Not keen on the Stripey Jumper or the Military Jacket.

Dogsby Mon 25-Jul-11 19:25:04

mohair thing nice
chelsea thing - wtf did i order MORE purple for?

netbook Mon 25-Jul-11 20:33:54

Has anyone bought the Trimmed Velvet Blazer is it any good? I really fancy it, but would like an opinion first, ta

polyhymnia Mon 25-Jul-11 23:22:28

dogsby - can you say any more about why you think the mohair cardi is nice, please?

I fancied that as well as the Chelsea cardigan I've ordered, but was a bit worried that it might a) bobble or b) catch on things.

I realise it's rather early days for you to see how it wears (!), but grateful if you or others have any comments to add. TIA

Dogsby Tue 26-Jul-11 17:58:37

it looks a bit weird with the holes. well its slightly see through
and i got the teal one as am SO SO over purple

Northernlurker Tue 26-Jul-11 21:41:25

C&P from another thread:

Mine has come.

The uplifting top is not uplifting. It is in fact deadly dull!

The wrap top is lovely though. PERFECT neckline and a good fit on 5ft 3 size 22, H cup me grin

ameliagrey Tue 26-Jul-11 21:45:37

oh dear. I am sending all of mine back sad though going to exchange the rainy day mac in black for an 6 as the 10 is huge.

Then i will hang on to it and see what else appears in the shops.

waiting for a sophie jumper to come and might order velvet skinny jeans as an exchange for some of today's order.

ameliagrey Tue 26-Jul-11 21:45:59

a 6? No I meant an 8.

princessdave Wed 27-Jul-11 11:48:27

Oh dear Northern Lurker, the uplifting top was the first thing in my basket on preview as I liked the menthe colour, polka dots and twisted neckline. I haven't unpacked it yet but the colour was a lot darker than I expected. I will 'try' it all on this evening (over my 34+3 bump!) and work out what, if anything, is a keeper. I do like the look of the wrap top though so am hoping that one will stay at least. Read on another thread that the cord mini wasn't good so not got high hopes for that now...

JohnniesBitch Wed 27-Jul-11 12:44:45

got mine, most of it is for the dc so keeping it all as they have all grown. waiting on johnnieb for ds1.
i got my boring and predictable new wrap dresses, ideal for work but wouldnt wear them if i was a sahm, except maybe the plain black dressed up for a nice meal out. but a good fit and two sizes smaller than last years hence me needing new ones. I work in a safe and predictable office as an acocunts manager so not funky at all.

greycircles Wed 27-Jul-11 12:48:52

I've got kids stuff.

Pair of knee patch trousers each for DS and DD which were really nice and some long sleeved T shirts as both have grown out of last year's stuff. Really pleased with all of it.

mippy Wed 27-Jul-11 13:01:41

I have two wrap tops and a cardi, though since have liked the Sophie jumper a lot. Wrap tops are hit and miss on me so if they don't suit I'll be exchanging.

moragbellingham Wed 27-Jul-11 13:56:02

Drapey jersey top is typically Boden (of yesteryear) but now has good long sleeves and longish in the body.
Not as plunging as the summer short sleeve version thankfully due to an inbuilt bit of jersey IYSWIM. Think I might get another colour when there's a decent offer on.

EldonAve Wed 27-Jul-11 19:23:24

Half my stuff arrived
Rainday mac is nice but too thick and stiff for me, can't justify spending £92 when I'm not sure how much I'll wear it

Keeping two essential scoop tops but the colours don't correspond to the website - the pink is much brighter and the pine much darker and sludgier

StyleandBooty Wed 27-Jul-11 20:12:24

Leather biker really, really nice.

Kids' pull on baggies in brushed cotton good, as usual.
