Hi, lovely ladies of Boden land. :)
Real fast today, not a whole lot of reviews, but at least there are some.
Quick reminder...if you would like to see an item closer up on me or my blog friend Molly, click on the photo to be taken to a larger photo (a right click will even allow you to open it up in its own tab, btw)...if you would like to see the item's availability, other colors, and measurements, click on the Boden stock photo which will take you directly to Boden's website...if you would like to see an item at a prior blog post, click on the link taking you to that post.
I still don't know when Boden will switch the sale prices to their lower second cut prices (some items don't get a second cut, fwiw), but I anticipate early January. Don't forget, January is when Boden updates its site with spring items, so anyone who pre-ordered should be getting those packages fairly soon (of course, I will get a few things, no surprise there).
Onto the reviews!
Boden Limited Edition:
I have not worn it in public as I didn't want to stain or ruin the dress before the other came (I will never EVER return worn items, yuck!), so once I saw the second came, I knew I could decide and finally wore this pretty.
I opted for this one of the two dresses because of the underbust ruching...on the other dress the ruching was a bit high and didn't lay as well as the ruching on this dress. Having said that, if I had received the other one and not received this one, I would have been fine with it. When you have two well constructed items, it really is just splitting hairs over what makes one worthwhile in your wardrobe.
(Definitely nice to know that the refund for the original price I paid will be coming...and in January when we all need it the most...oh, my goodness, holiday excess under the tree always means an uncomfortable financial situation in January and February. LOL.)
The shoes, btw, are the Felt Almond Heels by Plenty by Tracy Reese (purchased from Anthro during the fall). They are an excellent option for this outfit. I could see wearing this outfit to church or dinner...easily.
Stella Dress. Stock is running low...especially in the larger sizes and in the solids.
My Closet Travels) sent me pics of her wearing the Jersey Rose Top with a Banana Republic Cardigan and jeans a week or so ago. I had meant to include them in last week's BWRR, but well, you all know what happened. (Oh, the folly of thinking I can publish during insane times like the holidays is a definite downfall of mine.)
Jersey Rose Top. This top was utterly perfect for the "casual, festive and comfy" outfit that Molly was hoping to have for her morning out at worship. I agree. This is definitely a top that is festive but can be dressed up or worn more casually for a comfy dressy feel. Wish it came in other colors, as I am oversaturated in these hues for the moment. (Pardon my terrible pun.)
Uptown Flats. Of these, Molly had this to say: These navy patent flats were a mere $70 and are very comfy. I agree, btw. "Merely" $70 is a pretty decent price for all leather construction (barring a rubber bit on the sole for traction) in a versatile silhouette. The larger sizes are selling faster than the smaller sizes. :)
Cashmere Cardi Coat and Jersey Maxi Dress and Upbeat Kitten Heels and Easy Crossover Tunic. I did not wear all these together at once ('cause I am not crazy), but I did bring them down with me to NC for a weekend away. Check them out here. :)
Okay, that's it for today! You all have a great Wednesday!
