Knitted tunic - v nice
v neck t shirt with empire line - nice
Wideleg jeans - nice but a little, ahem, snug.
Flowery tunic thing - jury's still out
Yoga trousers - nice
Denim skirt (flippy) - nice
Patterned cotton skirt - v nice
Kaftan with ric rac round the neck and hem - MINGING, I mean absolutely GOPPING.

Oh dear. Looks like I'll be keeping a fair bit of it.

Go on, shoot me down. Am a Johnnie-lover. Can't help it.

Well, I was excited grin

Ooh I’m excited too - had a large order arrive yesterday!

But I’m a bit disappointed with their ballet pumps - very narrow and tight so have returned and re ordered in a larger size...

I rather went overboard in the sale and liked everything so much I ordered some more blush

I ordered a dress from the spring preview before Christmas so I’m waiting for that too.

Shoes always too small, weird cos boots always ok.

Boden for ladies with tiny hips and long narrow feet.

Like Christmas isn't it!

Their boots are always huge and flapping around the calf -gave up a long time ago on them (and they look so good in the catalogue). sad Too much like wellies...

I got my dispatch email today so it should be here by the end of the week!

Ruby2shoes Wed 14-Jan-09 13:55:57

I read that here and on some of the reviews that the boots gape if you are slim of calf - which is why Ive avoided them.

Shame as they do look good in the photos.

Bobbie - did you buy the pintuck merino tunic? Saw that in the catalogue this morning and am tempted as it looks beautiful.

SilentTerror Wed 14-Jan-09 17:57:52

Yes Bobbie,which knitted tunic/I have the knitted merino v neck one in magenta,not sure about colour though,may return it.

Bobbiewickham Wed 14-Jan-09 20:39:25

yes, merino pintuck. Is really nice on, will look good with skinnies and uggs.
