For all the readers who say that these reviews are terrible for their pocketbook have a good friend in me. LOL. After creating and reading my own Boden Weekly Review Roundups, I have admittedly purchased an item or two, including today's lovely, the Textured Cotton Skirt in the fudge colorway.
So thank you, lovely ladies of my favorite Boden blogs, you all convinced me that this skirt was worth it. And I will probably convince a few of you myself. ;)
Don't forget to apply a coupon to this skirt purchase, if you take the plunge. Right now, the diminishing discount offer is still at 25% off, so that gives this skirt a pretty decent price for what it is.
aka as my grandpa. (Who knew that 83 year old men could be as demanding as 4 year old boys? Laugh. Love ya, grandpa!)
Turns out this outfit was perfect for my day. The look was polished, a bit Emma Pillsbury inspired (or says Mr. Dina), and exceedingly comfortable. I don't even kid when I say that...I literally felt better than I do in many of my pants and shorts outfits. The heels were even okay, as the chunky heel on the cinema t-straps (J. Crew, Spring 2009) are more of a stable surface for walking (which I did a ton of, btw).
Quick overview of the pieces...the featherweight cotton bling-bling cardigan is a size small, and I love how the teal pops nicely against the brown in the skirt (I picked this color in the skirt so I could *pop* colors against it, btw)...the factory teagan ruffle popover is a size 4 and I glad I re-bought this in the factory version as the original I had was too big...the textured cotton skirt is a size US 8 Long or UK 12 Long and I love it...and the cinema t-straps are a size 10.
The length is fab, I always buy longs in Boden and I wish other companies would offer skirts in longs, too. I don't have to buy longs in dresses or tops, but I am very tall in my legs and find the extra fabric in pants and skirts very helpful.
Is it poof or pouf? Brain fart! ;)
BTW, the cotton/linen blend didn't wrinkle too terribly, but it did stretch out a bit. I *could* have gone with a 6 Long, but I am fine with the size I got. It's all good.
