Hi, all! It's day three of my five day review post-a-thon (or so I hope). :-)
Yesterday I review the Classic Shirt here, and the day before I reviewed the Terese Jersey Dress here.
As you likely know now, there is a 25% off all current season items over at Boden, so I figured this is the best time to used reserve energies and review as much as possible.
(Yay for early quarter less pressure to get grades done asap.)
Richmond 7/8 Pants. Size 10 Long. Yes, I am the person who saw this floral explosion and was all, "oooooooh." LOL. I know I am not alone because at school today, the after school enrichment teacher said, "I WANT THOSE PANTS." YAY! My kin are around!
Anyhow, I didn't choose them because the name is Richmond, either (favorite city on the whole planet). I genuinely love this cut, especially in the shorts. I tried the pants last year in a gorgeous teal green color, but the 8 was too tight, and the 10 way too loose. I am pleased to report the 10 this year fits perfectly, and though the waist is a bit big, it isn't so big I can't wear them.
The 7/8 length is such BS, though. They say it has a 29" inseam in the long, and that on me is at upper ankle length, so not full length, but in no way is that 7/8. I would say if you are 6 feet tall, it would be 7/8. Lou, my blog friend I met in London while I was there, tried these on and decided she needed a petite to get the 7/8 length. I agree, and would need a regular if I wanted 7/8 length. I don't want 7/8 length, so I am cool with these being this long.
I needed to wear a tee today because we were having Greek Day at school and I had to wear a large piece of white fabric over the outfit (like this) and I was told I would get warm. I did, so glad I wore the tee. I do want to see it with a short-sleeved summer sweater in a navy or dark blue shade.
I think I will try it in a solid. Maybe the brighter green?
The pencil skirt may be a better option for those of you liking the print but not as willing to show it off to the extreme that I do. LOL. I am assuming there are at least a few others like me out there, but I totally get this is not for everyone. :-)
Talk with you all tomorrow!
