Boden - pls come and tell me what you think of these pieces
skirt. Am not usually a skirt person but this is gorgeous on! Got it in the pale tan colour and if Imkeepmit will need a top but it's lovely with brown wool tights and long boots. However, that's my opinion but is it nice or naff in the yes of Mumsnet?
Also, www.boden.co.uk/en-GB/Womens-Trousers-Jeans/Jeans/WC090/Womens-Straightleg-Jeans.html?NavGroupID=19 Straight legged jeans in Indigo. Am amazed, truly flabbergasted at what a good shape these are on (even restraining my tummy!) and need to change for long length if I keep them. Question is, what would I put with them in terms of footwear and top. They're quite a purple-blue. Boden have styled them with grey boots but I don't have and don't want to buy grey boots! Any suggestions please?
Skirt - I'm a hardened Boden fan but I'd only buy it in Mocha, not keen on the pale colour from the photo but maybe it's better in person? Jeans - I think I'm currently wearing these jeans (or at least the summer collection equivalent). I wear them with ballet pumps (silver, dark pink) and with dark brown boots. Much, much prefer their straightleg jeans to bootlegs / wideleg / skinny ...
Uh oh ... is the skirt really that bad? I like it as the shape really suits me, it is surprisingly nice irl but I will have a look at the Mocha - maybe it wouldn't be quite so grim. Does anyone like it [desperate emoticon]?
Sorry but I hate the skirt- you might like the cord skirt with ruffle hem as an alternative. I sent it back as it was an odd fit on me though! I'm afraid re. your skirt, I hate the length- I like just above the knee rather than this droopy below knee style.
trousers are okay but they are over priced- Uniqlo do the same thing for half that price or less. My nicest jeans cost £14.99 from them!
Lol! They have got really expensive. Picked up some nice bits for T DTs though along with a couple of tops and jumper for myself ... oh, maybe a scarf too. Tried the skirt on when Mum was here for a second opinion ... 'cheap looking' was her verdict!
