Anyone else?

Only thing is, there's nothing for me- only dd.

Yes, got mine today- scroll down.

Marthasmama Fri 24-Jul-09 23:21:34

Have you ooooooooooo! I'm going to check now......

Marthasmama Fri 24-Jul-09 23:22:07

Nothing - damn it!

Arrived yesterday, sent back today! Coats and jackets are all really small across boobs. Kept Henley dress and a few other bits so I can --exchange for more 20% discount-- decide later, but very disappointed/relieved.

I got mine today.

the velvet coat is too thin and very narrow, the Marylebone coat is a bit shapeless an the material isn't nice.

The merino dress looks like a sack.

I bought the ruffle tunic which is lovely, but that's all I'm keeping.

I'm disappointed in the quality overall but quite relieved I don't like it allgrin

I have received my order confirmation today. I've only ordered things for the dc so should be ok. grin Hurrah!

Tell me about this "exchanging for more 20% discount" - how does that work?

BodenGroupie Sat 25-Jul-09 20:23:51

If you've bought something on an offer, like 20% preview, when you return it for an exchange, the offer is still valid - even if you're spending more than you did originally!

I have a friend who always buys the cheapest tthing in the preview then returns it to buy whatever she wants when the catalogue comes out!

I'd reccomend the Boiled Wool coat- at first I thought it was hopeless, but with the sleeves shortened ( for me anyway) and the collar left open, it's nice. I got a size 10- and often an 8 fits in Boden- so be warned.

Also like the cropped cash cardi- nice quality- the 60s mini- in longer length, and the velvet straight legs.

Going back is the bib tunic- too long decided-looks like a dress.

I got the urban mac - way too stiff/straight and made my hourglass figure look like a boy.

Gorgeous grey henley with bits of bright colour on is yukyukyuk, short/tight/unflattering.

Rainbow cuff cardi very nice, tad large fitting but very drapey.

Kids stuff all lovely as ever, especially everyday dress.

I'm returning for more 20% off goodies too.

I ordered those boots MayorNaze, they are waiting to go back.

They are very flat and pump like, not chunky enough around the sole and not fitted enough for me around the calf.

I've bought some Fly boots instead which are much nicer IMO and much cheaper.

MayorNaze Mon 03-Aug-09 15:57:28

are they welly-like? do they come up big or small on sizing? i can be a 4 or 5 depending on what and where.

what Fly boots did you get instead? <<nosey>>

Doyouthinktheysaurus Tue 04-Aug-09 05:48:28

I found them a bit welly like TBH.

They were fairly standard for sizing and quite comfy just not gorgeous. The leather was lovely, really shiny. I was just disappointed in the style of boot.

These are the boots I got, in red. They are so comfy.

MayorNaze Tue 04-Aug-09 12:24:41

oh i like! hmm am still toying with the pink ones, though it sounds as if i will be disappointed too tbh.

its either pinkies or these they look much more purple in the cataglogue

Doyouthinktheysaurus Tue 04-Aug-09 19:25:12

I like those boots in purple.

Much nicer sole than the patent ones.

Doyouthinktheysaurus Tue 04-Aug-09 19:26:02

I mean heel not sole.

MayorNaze Wed 05-Aug-09 10:38:45

do you know what i think, i think i will order both pairs and return whichever i prefer less. i WILL return a pair. i WILL.

<<wanders off to count how many tins of baked beans are left in cupboard as that is all we will be eating this month>> grin

though in all honesty i will look forward to the delivery with incontainable glee and then have a good sob as neither pair will fit/be nice
