It's nice.
Have been trawling websites for warm casual coat and then something a bit smarter for work and this is only thing i like.

Only in the brown and blue.

I like it v. much INDEED. It has quite a 40s style to it, sort of nipped in waist but in a flattering way, because my waist is long past being nipped iyswim.

Also good swishy lining.

Won't be wildly warm I don't think.

I have had lots of nice remarks, and then have done that coughing "Harr boden rumph' thing when they ask where it is from. smile

Hmm, I feel a purchase coming on....
Am still on quest for something warm for walks though. Got one from Lands End today. Warm as hell, brilliantly made but god, tis frumpy.

I sent mine back. It was an odd length and the quality not good enough for the price.

Did you get that email from Johnnie of buy 3 items and the 4th costs you £1?

girlsnextdoor Wed 17-Sep-08 07:29:25

cthea- yes I did.

Got the spotty coat ages ago at 20% discount, but felt the spots just screamed at me! It is also not very warm and overpriced imo. I've bought coats in the past from £300- £100 and this one just isn't worth it.

I'm still trying to find these Orla Kiely inspired Boden bags that some awful person wanted to mention, but never cared to divulge any further.

I saw this but thought it was, well, just too Boden. Have heard more than one derogatory comment re quality as well.

Anna8888 Wed 17-Sep-08 14:36:29

No no no it's inelegant and deeply unsexy...

Honestly, Moony it is nice. I promise. Also I am not known for my hotch potch clothes or vibrant colours - so i don't think it looks too Bodeny on me. I don't look 'fun'.

Not inelegant, but possibly unsexy. But in a good way. smile

which I find a bit scary tbh
