Boden Review

Here are reviews of a couple of Boden purchases I made. Not everything has come yet. I used Ebates so I got 10% off my order, free shipping, and 5% cash back.

First is the Double Layer Jersey Dress. Sorry I don't have a picture of me in the dress I completely forgot to take one when I wore it this week. I LOVE this dress. It is probably one of the most flattering dresses I own. My "trouble"area is my tummy and this dress makes me look like I have the flatest, skinniest little belly. Love it! It's a light jersey material so its perfect for spring, summer, and fall. You could even get away with it in the winter. In addition to gray the dress comes in a couple of different patterns and black. Remember Boden has U.K. sizes. The dress isn't cheap at $118.00 but going with my policy of not buying items full price I did get 10% off, cash back and free shipping.


Next item is what I am wearing today. I love this Favourite V-neck Cardigan. I got it in red stripe (red and light blue stripes). It's really cute and bright. The fit is great (I normally wear an XS or S so I got the smallest Boden size). Since the weather is still cold here (we had flurries this morning) I paired it with a white cami, my James Jeans (thank you Rue La La), and Favorite Thing #14. The whole getting my picture taken is still a little awkward. I decided to go with showing my face this time so I'm not cut off and looking heavier than I am. I still think I look weird (very cheerleader like today) so who knows maybe after the next four or five reviews I'll have the picture taking down to a science.

I love the cardi on you. So cute & thinning! I hear you on the tummy thing so these items are of interest. Please post a pic in the dress.

I love the cardigan too! I browse through Boden, compare it to JCrew, wonder why all those big buttons on their clothes, and set it aside. I have one dress from a few years ago that was nice. I may have to check them out again.

Thanks for posting real life pic's. Nothing wrong w/the cheerleader pose...rah!rah!rah!
