so I know it's Boden but I love the colours and its a bargain price

Really wanted it in size 10r.

Why the heck did I not just buy it last night!? sad

Phone them up!

They really are lovely, returns come into the warehouse before they put it on line.
If you are patient and persistant then the skirt will be yours

I speak from experience here and they really tried to get me the tops that I wanted before going on holiday.

Failing that boden have show ground clearance sales and you might get one there or eBay

What about the 10l, it's short anyway.

it's hideous - lucky escape

Just keep checking every morning as someone will probably return one

Pinkflipflop Tue 01-Jan-13 12:08:17

I'm only 5foot 6 so I think the long would be too long! Will phone them tomorrow and keep checking the stock.

gin off you go and have another drink!! grin

Sorry have to agree it's not the nicest - £30 isnt really a bargain price in the non boden world either!

Bella88 Tue 01-Jan-13 16:02:52

Lucky escape, it's minging.

penguinplease Tue 01-Jan-13 16:04:11

yuk, looks like an old carpet my nan once had, lucky escape OP much nicer ones to be had..

I like it. I have the Emily skirt in red, though I bought mine back in August.

EuroShagmore Tue 01-Jan-13 18:12:51

I am also in the "lucky escape" camp!

BunnyLebowski Tue 01-Jan-13 18:15:17

Good god that is ugly.

Fairylea Tue 01-Jan-13 18:19:42

No. Just no. You were very lucky.


RudolphLovesoftplay Tue 01-Jan-13 18:36:08

I really like it too, and a complete bargain price. Might get one myself grin

peggyblackett Tue 01-Jan-13 18:39:05

Lucky escape wink

I bought it earlier this year but returned it. It fitted really well and looked nice but I couldn't work out what to wear it with.

Keep trying, it may well come back into stock.

Pinkflipflop Tue 01-Jan-13 18:51:41

<flounces> Well, I am totally ignoring the "ooooh how vile brigade!"

I still like it and will get it if I can!

science I am planning on wearing it with a Reiss jumper, huge green scarf and Emu boots. Glad to hear you thought it was a good fit.

I'm sorry but the hideousness of it just made me spurt tea all over my iPhone. Have the Per Una designers been moonlighting?

peggyblackett Tue 01-Jan-13 22:57:15

LOL at Per Una designers moonlighting. Totally sums it up (sorry PFF).

Have you managed to get the skirt yet?

By phoning them up I have managed to order a coat, a top and two pairs of trousers, none which were on line.
