Boden's Winter Collection is On-Line Today!!!


Okay, I know this coat was already on-line, but it is a new picture, which means there is a new catalog coming, and that means we can all waste our time salivating over the loveliness that is Boden. :)
Yay, we can all waste our time over at Boden today (already done by me, in fact I just spent the last half an hour clipping items for polyvore) looking at all the new goodies. There are many very nice items. I won't waste your time talking about which ones I like, but if you are curious, here are my top three from the new collection:

1. Glam Evening Cardigan in black. Yummy...although very impractical for my life!!! :)
2. Cashmere Tunic in azure. You know this would be so lovely on a cold winter's morning...very snuggly looking.
3. Vintage Inspired Necklace in pewter. Boden does the statement necklace, and really well. This is my favorite of the bunch.

I can't resist asking, what are your favorites? (I feel a bit like Alexis over at JCA, except for Boden...how did that happen?)

How exciting! Their winter collection is beautiful. They are showcasing the beautiful colors that unfortunately (for me)
J. Crew is lacking so far this season. I preordered the Ravishing Ruffle Jacket in purple and cannot wait for it to arrive!!! I'm also loving that cashmere tunic. There is just too much!!!

That cardigan is fabulous! I can't think of what I'd wear it with, but I'd totally wear it! And you introduced me to Boden, so you kind of are like my Boden Aficionada, haha!

I am very tempted to try their cashmere. So many cute sweaters.

Ahhh I am loving Boden right now! I finally broke down and placed my first order about 2 months ago, and since that time have placed TWO MORE! It's getting bad - like, J.Crew bad! But I really like what they have. Their stuff fits me nicely, it's well-made, and it's so darn cute! Plus you can't beat free shipping and free returns. (Hear that, J.Crew??)

I really like the new Drummer Jacket. I'll probably have to get it as soon as I get a coupon!

I'd love to hear what you've purchased recently and what you think of the items. I wonder if we've bought some of the same things! I'll have to do a Polyvore set of mine :)

Ohmygosh! I need that glam cardigan! I looove the one with the embellished collar. Droool...

I've been so good in holding off of major purchases, though; so I want to keep it up. But I don't know how long I'll be able to keep it up for. :( Will poweeeerrr...

The glam cardigan with embellished collar is gorgeous! I could totally see you wearing that, and rocking it! IMHO, there is nothing wrong with a little bling during the day, so you should go for it!

Rosa said...

Oh I think the necklace is so gorgeous. Love it. The coat is so pretty too. Ah, so much color in the collection, I am loving it.

Love the embellished cardi - love that they have 3 different styles of embellishment. I'm all about that jeweled collar! And I love that cashmere tunic - sweaterdresses - yum!

Suzy said...

I love all your pics, Dina! I hope this means (maybe) that some other "older" items might get reduced at some point??? That'd be great too! Thanks for letting us know!

Those colors are amazing! They are so you...I'm ready for some shopping!

Hi, all. I loved reading your choices for the winter Boden collection. I really want to have more money so I can get everything on my wishlist...but I know FOR SURE that necklace will be mine. SO pretty!

Pamela: When you get the ruffle jacket, could you post a review on whatever post I have that day? I really want to hear more about it (I am on the fence about whether I want it for myself). I have a feeling others are looking at it, too. IT is a very pretty, feminine piece. :) Good choice!

Amy Kelinda: Boden Aficionada? That is funny...I don't know that Boden will pique the sort of voracious appetite that J. Crew has, but I definitely know there is a subset of very passionate women with regards to their Boden clothing!!! :)

Tastymoog: You and I have such a love for color and texture, I can completely see you wearing a good majority of their pieces...plus they have a stellar reputation regarding fit and quality.

Kat: Yeah, I get sucked into the Boden vortex, as well. I have been that way with J. Crew in the past, but with J. Crew offering only more muted hues these past few months, and with Boden amping the colors and patterns up, Boden is getting more of my (limited) funds. That drummer jacket is cute...esp. the light blue and brown one. I agree, though, wait for a coupon...I suspect a 25% or 4 for 3 plus one dollar or even (fingers crossed) 3 for 2 plus one dollar will come along...

I think a polyvore is in order. I should do a fall purchases set and a fall/winter wants list. Maybe later today or tomorrow?

Drewablank: Will POWER!!! Ha, Boden is BOUND to suck you in...I can see you in all of their shoes...heehee. :) I am sure I am not helping!

Marietta: Yes, I will probably buy a glam cardigan, but I suspect it will be the black one with silver striping as I don't have to stress about the sequins falling off...are you thinking of one of those cardis for yourself??? :)

Rosa: The colors are so vivid and wonderful, just what we need on yucky Virginia rainy not quite winter mornings (because really we don't get a "real" winter here). I thought of you the other day...Nordstroms supposedly sells mini-Boden...maybe you could swing by and see if they have something in one of the larger sizes that could fit you...or scour the site and see if there is something that ladies are complaining about being too small...I really want you to have the chance to wear the clothes because they are so delicious!!!

HeidiG.: They have the best sweaters...plenty warm enough for you, my sweet cold-blooded friend. :) I haven't tried their cashmere, but since I am putting a moratorium on J. Crew cashmere this year, I may try some of Boden's!!!

Suzy: I suspect the fall/winter collection won't be reduced until December, at the earliest. The spring/summer collection wasn't reduced until mid-July. Boden isn't like J. Crew...they have WAY more sales during the run of the collection, and then reduce everything all at once at the end of the season. At least we know what to expect with Boden, unlike J. Crew, where we could buy something for full price and then have it reduce by 75% the NEXT day. J. Crew, for all its awesomeness, really does have a knack for p*ssing off its customers with regards to the way they reduce items and refuse to have any sales on full-priced pieces. It is so weird. I much prefer Boden's way of doing things...keeps my blood pressure lower for one!!! :)

Monogramgirl: I am ready to shop, too. :) Let's go. (JK--I have to wait till I can afford it...soon, I hope, though!)
