*Spotty coat- don't. Too spotty and very thin material- won't keep you warm. Generous sizing- I am between 8-10- got 8- ample.
*Chunky Marl Cardigan- shapeless but warm- returning.
*Cashmere cropped cardi- divine colour ( pale blue) but too short even though I measured- could only be worn over dress. Nice quality though - thickish cash
*Favoutie V neck cardi- fine- keeping one colour, ordered 2 to choose.
*Trousers- weekend trousers- es- nice fit.
*Trousers- studio trousers- yes. however, these are much tighter round waist (need to lose muffin top) than weekend trouser- and also slightly lower rise- despite both being called "Below waist".

i got the cropped cashmere cardigan from the summer range and wear it over camisole type tops (kate moss one from top shop or bodas ones) and it looks very nice.

I ordered the studio trousers, I missed the bit about 'below waist' though.

They sent me an email saying your delivery is on the way. I ordered loads. I'd quite forgotten about it.

weekend trousers- granny trews - oh dearsad

I am easily old enough to be a granny but....

Really? anyone else?

They are very comfy- def. granny trews! seriously, I think they look okay.

Not the spotty mac was it? sad

Mind you mine is on a 3 week wait I think.
They have despatched the rest..

Flightputsonahat Fri 01-Aug-08 13:06:49

Oh the spot coat - I see - that's a shame it wasn't any good, it looks gorgeous doesn't it.

Thanks for the reviews btw! Will add mine when it arrives.

girlnextdoor Fri 01-Aug-08 13:07:12

no - 'twas the spotty coat.
cropped cash cardigan- ooh you have got me puzzled now- keep it to wear over camis- will have another try on, cos the colour is brilliant for me- or swap for the V neck cash sweater?

The Weekend trews are going back- they are ok but not worth almost £50- look a bit M&S jeans style, tbh.

The Studio trews are great- just need to lose 2lbs so I don't have to constantly breathe in.

The cashmere cardi is sadly going back- I am too old to wear it so cropped, but if you are under 35 you will get away with it!

When did you order GND?

I ordered something on Wednesday night and was hoping it would arrive by the weekend.

girlnextdoor Fri 01-Aug-08 14:14:05

I ordered ages ago when it was 20% off smile

However, I also ordered the double layer T shirt in sale 2 days back and have been emailed to say it is on its way.

seems to be taking 2 days from when they email to say it's coming.......

cod- they are def. going back- they are ok, but not worth that ££££££££s.

hmm, i've been browsing the site and I like this season's dresses A LOT.
I have never bought from Boden before though.

SilentTerror Fri 01-Aug-08 18:24:11

GND,what material are the weekend trousers,are they soft stretchy cotton or hard,ifyswim?
Bought spme similar trousers in last winter's Boden sale and they were awful,sort of textured material but awful.
I usually like thwe wideleg style and am awaiting my order with 'mooching trousers' enclosed!

Whizzz Fri 01-Aug-08 18:29:10

I was very happy with the 3 (!) washed tie back tops I got!! I thought one colour was low stock so I wouldn't get actually get it - but I did!!

girlnextdoor Fri 01-Aug-08 18:29:30

The weekend trousers are medium texture I'd say- they are a bit like canvas but not quite so hard. They are definitely not thin/soft cotton.
They do have top stitching up the side leg seams which make them like jeans, but they aren't jeans iyswim! They also have quite a high rise- although they are supposedly below waist, they are JUST.
The studio trs though are very soft.

I was wondering what the mooching trs were like!

ColumboJumbo Fri 01-Aug-08 18:50:41

I thought most of the stuff looked horrid this year, but I realise its because they used a horribly too thin model for most of it and it hangs off her and looks cheap.

girlnextdoor Fri 01-Aug-08 18:53:17

there are also lots of smiling kids in the photos too-def. going for the yummy mummy punters!

SilentTerror Fri 01-Aug-08 19:07:52

Whizz,I got 3 tie back tops also,navy,ivory and thistle.Like then alot.
GND,thanks for that,will let you know re mooching trousers,have always bought a pair of the ir velvet wideleg things every year so we will see!
Hope they come tomorrow!

SilentTerror Sat 02-Aug-08 19:21:19

'Odette' dress in purple-really pleases with this,looks great.Shape is nice,fitted over bust with skirt that falls nicely.Glad I got purple,not sure about other colours!

girlnextdoor Sat 02-Aug-08 19:24:57

are the mooching trews worth the money- they seemed a tad pricey tome?

sushistar Sat 02-Aug-08 19:28:09

I don't GET Boden. I just don't get it. I'm 26 - am I too young to get it? The catalogue looks pretty, but I just look at the clothes and think 'eh?'
What am I missing?

SilentTerror Sat 02-Aug-08 19:31:15

Are pricy,but ordered with the discount so 20% off,made thembetter!
I never see trousers anywhere else that I like,other than Monsoon and occasionally Principles or Autograph.
Have bought a velvet slouchy pair from Boden for past few years and all are still going strong!

sushistar Sat 02-Aug-08 19:33:45

Silent, I'm sure you look absolutely fab in your trousers, but I look at pics like this and think 'eh??!!?'
