In tonight's Boden reviews, I take a look at two Johnnie b. items, including one with a wee plump man bird named Le Pigeon, which is why my post's title is in French.
(And for those who don't speak French--I am one of them, btw, just know a few words--étoiles are stars which references the second item, the pretty cardigan with lots of them in a foil print on grey cotton.)
CC, one of the best blog friends here at My Superfluities, pointed out the sparkly graphic t-shirt to me back when it debuted. I hadn't even noticed it, but was super excited when CC suggested it.
I knew as soon as I was able to get a good enough code for Boden, I would definitely be purchasing this gorgeous chartreuse tee embellished with Monsier Pigeon and his sequined beret.
I should have known better. Although I am fine with this tee being less fitted than my tees of the past, it is fairly loose through the shoulders and through the waist. And since I can't tumble dry this to shrink it AND it is sold out in all but the tiniest sizes, I am going to live with it not being as slim fit as they describe in its copy. :)
I look forward to wearing this "put a bird on it" shirt with a pencil skirt and heels. This is a great critter and I think I will be on the receiving end of many "I love that tee" comments.
The cotton is super soft (100%, btw) and the foil printed stars are nicely printed, deeply, and without me worrying that they will flake off with wear and wash.
Sparkly Graphic T-Shirt and Pretty Cardigan. The t-shirt is less sold out than the cardigan in grey, but there are popbacks sometimes. Don't hold your breath for the star cardigan, though. If I do see it, I will try to make an announcement on my facebook page. :)
Okay, that's it! Have any of you ordered any gems from the Johnnie b. line that you would like to share? Any experiences with the new sizing?
Talk with you tomorrow, when I do reviews/ootds with the
Swishy Jersey Skirt.
