Not a good idea, IMO

It looks very boring.

Look at the review - 5 out of 5 and she hasn't even got one!

southeastastra Tue 06-Oct-09 18:25:42

very overpriced, looks like one from next

cornsilk Tue 06-Oct-09 18:27:15

boden tunic - i have one I got on ebay, and I love it - just bunging in for old feckers

bumping of boden on ebay

i think boden watch is probably v good value - i am dead impressed with my long boots. £95 and water resistant isn't bad.

i have got the new winter tunic in dark pink. lovely colour but very long, below mid-thigh. is it to be a dress or a return?

I quite like the style of the watch but I wouldn't buy a watch from Boden - for no particular reason, just it feels wrong hmm.

Fishie - I love your winter tunic. I have the summer version in the same colour but cross over top instead of scoop neck. Like yours. the length is longer than I would expect for a tunic - just above my knee. I have worn mine with ankle skimming crops, leggings, skinny jeans and have decided to brave it with opaques and boots and wear as a dress

re dress?
i have bought a long line shirt from marks for no real reason and just tried that under it... have some top shop treggings from last winters sale too and some grey long flat boots

PVish - have you tried the shirt beneath the tunic? Wouldn't have thought about it before but wondering if might be alternative to long sleeve tee.

I don't have bust issues - am petite of nork

boodeniites Tue 06-Oct-09 20:50:59

PVish Tue 06-Oct-09 21:00:17

fishie Tue 06-Oct-09 21:25:31
