Not truly a high st pick and not something I'd do normally. Yes, yes, okay I've picked something from Boden. Look before you judge me, I've drunk 2 glasses of wine the night before to pluck up the courage.
It is like this... the catalogue arrived through the door and I opened page one and was won over. Then I looked through the rest of it and was bored, relieved and under whelmed. Yes I realise Johnnie Boden will never ask me to style his 'collection' and there will be no press freebies blah blah blah bit whateves..
This is it...it said Mad Men to me and I would like to point out that I've watched it from the off and I'm very excited because series 4 kicks off in the UK on the 9th of September. Whilst no one can escape the Mad Men vibe these days it isn't often that I use the words, Boden + trend + fashion + Mad Men + love it, all in one sentence. Probably never again and I might live to regret it anyway - you know the wine, the feeling of yes all is well with the world, even Boden. Bring on LFW I obviously need some edge.
Meanwhile I give you middle England's version of Mad Men. Personally I'd go for red or black.
At £75 it is a bit pricey but Boden does generally deliver on quality.
UPDATE: Well folks I spoke to the lovely helpful call centre peeps and guess what this dress was available as pre-order (who knew Boden were getting all pre-order on us) and sold out which would be fine but they are not restocking due to such long lead in time from their overseas manufacturers. Folks today is Sept 4th! This item is the first garment in the catalogue, women want it That's Not My Age alerted me to the problem and she would have looked a wow in the green dress. I want it in red and I never want Boden things except for the petit garcon who looks adorable in them. Come on Johnnie this is not good, it smacks of inefficiency and poor decision making not Boden.
