I just got my first ever Boden catalog in the mail. I had the impression Boden was a shop for conservative, middle-aged women (I am one of those things). I was tickled to find some very frisky and funky items that I would like to have in my closet. Lesson to self: don’t be a pre-judger, Missy.
This dress drew me in with the Peter Pan collar – it’s unexpected and girly, but the rest of the dress is classic. I love the full, full skirt. It comes in black, too, and a really pretty citron. The downside is that it must be dry-cleaned – it’s all wool – and I am a lazy sloth about such things.
The stripes are kind of wonky on this dress – and I love that. The sleeve length is just perfect and the neckline is made for pretty jewelry. This one is a wool/cotton blend, and it’s washable. Perfect for my office or date night.
I have a crush on these silver booties. Since I dress in simple neutrals on a regular basis, I am drawn to personality-shoes like these. Love the low heel (under 2″) and brogue details.
I’m pleased to host a giveaway by Dawn, owner and curator of the online shop Tea Stained Lace. I was a winner in her giveaway a couple of months ago, and received a very cool vintage 80’s midi skirt. She has good taste, this one!
