Boden Autumn/Winter - what have you got and are v happy with?
Merino v neck in purple is lovely (but a bit worried about how it will wash after bad experience with the summer stuff). Also very pleased with the weekend trousers, don't spill out over the top! Parisienne tee so nice I've ordered a second. OK, my name is Bodengroupie and I am an addict.........
Was planning to get urban mac in green and the parisienne tee, so that all sounds good. Boden Groupie - did you get the tee in a plain or a stripe? am thinking about stripes for work where I need to be sort of smart/casual.
This coat. Ordered it Pear (green) originally but the colour was a bit yack imo and washed me out (although I am dark eyed brunette). Blue is much better on me. I like it because it is fitted without being tight and it is a really nice weight so will actually keep me warm too. Big chunky buttons and funky lining are winners too.
This in purple. Sizing is a bit on the big side on this though, I went a size down. It is quite sexy (but subtle) on. Looks ace with boots and heels. The scoop is low enough to be unfrumpy but not so low that you feel like serving wench.
This top in blue. Good because it is fine knit, nice scoop neck (same principle as dress), nice little detailing on the cuffs and shoulders without being twee. Fit is good too, semi-fitted but not tight.
dont think it is too short, honestly - it cuts across the lower middle of my back (I am 5'6" size 10/12 and have bought the 120. My bust is 36" though and it might not suit bigger norks, but 'tis v flattering on me
I ordered the short cash cardi but sent it back-loved it to bits but was too short for me- I am an "older" MN and although I am a size 10, it looked a bit too young- unless worn over a dress. It didn't reach waist height and I am only 5'3".
I bought the studio trousers which I really like. Sent back the Weekend trousers- were a good fit, but everyone here said they looked like granny trousers .
I have kept the cash. slouchy jumper which I like.
Also kept the fave. everyday cardi.
I have sent loads back- knitted dress- frumpy- spotted coat- too spotty and too thin material- cord coat- just boring and poor fit.
