Bloody Johnnie- and his patronising copy...

Whoever writes the copy for the clothes- PLEASE just give it to me straight.

I want to know- material, zips/buttons,lined or not, and fit.

I do NOT want to know that it's perfect for a quick lunch, that it will make me look good if I have to fling it on over my jeans as I dash out the door, that it's just right for an impromptu informal supper or after-work dinner. (as if....)

I am a grown up- I can make my own mind up what it's suitable for.

Oh- and I decide whether it's FUN or not. angry

And another thing - what's with the photos of clothes where the model is hunched over, hugging her knees? Are we supposed to hazard a guess as to the fit/style/hell, colour of the dress? Cos we damn well can't see it.

Don't read it. Look at the picture, look at the price, look at what it is made of. That is all listed separately. You don't have to read the blurb. I never do!

I know what you mean. I'll be the judge of what's perfect for lunch in the park, and I hate being told what's sassy

I think 'fun' usually means wanky stripes/spots/colours.

All made for middle aged child/women ime

'Fun' means avoid where Boden is concerned.

I see Johnnie is now a "fashion geek"

hmm

Indeed 'fun' does indeed mean avoid. And that wanky "is it something I said" if like me you don't order anything...Yuck!
