Yes please

If this fall my clothing is actually coordinated, you will have Boden to blame. I fell in love with a little pea-green velvet jacket in their fall catalog, and that was my downfall. Several bushels of dollars later, many many little blue packages are wending their way toward me, and UK sizing or not, I'm in love.

Oh my God, the fall Boden catalog appeared in my home unbidden last week, and it was like my entire aesthetic, in one convenient retailer. I want every. single. freaking. thing. The fact that I had to lay out some fat cash on plumbing repairs is perhaps a mixed blessing!

Random: my verification word is "toeokeo."

Reminds me of J. Jill which I love. But I only shop their clearance. :)

Oh, I dropped way too much money there. Half of it's going back, at least... but not anything that is teal. Or green.

I love J. Jill, but their clothes don't fit me! I must have a non-standard ass. This, of course, is news to no one.

UK sizing is discouraging, isn't it?

And now there's talk that the EU will mandate clothing sizes by metric measurements across all member states. So no more vanity sizing!

I'm faint just thinking about it...

...But on the plus side for us Brits, clothes shopping in the US is hugely flattering to our egos :)

Boden are the bee's knees and the cat's pyjamas all rolled into one. And it just so happens that I am off to their ONE actual shop tonight to track down some gems from the autumn catalogue I was sent the other day. Spooky or wot?

I love that jacket and am contemplating several purchases from their website as well. Ah, the beauty and wonder that is the Internet!

Oh man! There's an actual STORE? I may have to go to London for that alone.

D! I think you're the one who introduced me to Boden, way back when. There was a skirt that was sooo cute; you linked to it. It had lots of loopy circles. I bought one similar to it just now. Their clothes are like crack, man.

Oh, please come to London!

But not for Boden.

I'm in love with one of the dresses. On the UK site, it costs 89 pounds. That's $178.

On the US site, it costs $128.

Unless you're paying $50 in shipping, it ain't worth it.

Now that's a raw deal. Hey, buy it on the US site, have it shipped to me in Seattle (I'll email you the address), and then I'll bring it with me to CherryCon!

I soooo would love to go to London. That whole trip Heidi took just made me drool. And you would be first on my list, my expat friend.

That's a nice website. The clothes are a little conservative for me, but perfect for my work wordrobe. A couple of those dresses were just adorable. Purses too. But, oh, expensive. And if they don't fit and i have to send tem back to the UK? Eeek. I didn't look to see if they have size help with measurements, though. That might work.

Yay you on your pretty coordinated purchases. :)
