Boden Fall comes up trumps with both a HEWI and a Wildcard! I know a lot of people are looking right now, so I thought I'd share my (slightly long and gushing) reviews.

To start with the amazing wins...

  • Ledbury Knee High Boots. Fit perfectly out of the box, including a smooth zip up - no stretching at all. I was worried about having to size down (no 1/2 sizes) but they fit well in 15 minutes of walking around the house. And they have NAVY SUEDE. Finally something other than black or brown for knee high boots! Found a HEWI and I'm thrilled.
  • Bridgewater Ankle Boots. My wildcard. I'm in love, and had to fight my daughter for who gets to wear first. A little hard to get into with my high arches, but once on, fit perfectly, and the embroidery aligns great with my preferred colors. I'm team heels, and will be wearing these asap -can it be Fall already?
  • Tilda V-Neck sweater. TTS. The green is gorgeous, the buttons a nice touch. May look at the Ivory as well. Will be a workhorse this season.
  • Arabella Sweatshirt. Perfect for summer to fall in Northern CA. Super roomy, and long. You might want to size down if you don't want oversized. Love the design on the yoke and sleeves.
  • Eliza Jersey Dress. My new dress for "can i just wear pajamas to work" days. Great lines and color. Sleeves are a little fussy - the ruffle hits right a peak bustline - but they add some extra interest to an otherwise very simple dress.
  • Althea Jersey Top. Love the green and blue. Will work well with jeans or with a skirt for casual days at work.
  • Cavendish Girlfriend Jeans. A repeat order for me. Went with the shorter length as these will be for wearing with boots.

And the not so good news:

  • Muriel sweater. Great color. WAAAY too big, and longer than it shows on the model. Size down if you want to try it.
  • Berwick Sweater. Another WAAAY too big sweater. Size down. The gray was too light for me, but the design is fun.
  • Sarah Jacquard top. Same material as their Ottoman dress? Or very close. Nice design, but the stripe overwhelmed me. Might be better on someone with shorter hair as there's a nice design to the back collar.
  • Magnolia Jersey Dress. Color blend made me think of Fiestaware. It's bright! Nice design, but very low cut on the front wrap. I would have required a tank top - no way to make it work with a pin.
  • Alexis Jersey Dress. Wow was this a miss for me. Smocking at the wrist was itchy, and the color was a loud tomato red. Too much for me to pull off.

Super happy with this order - and ready to retire the credit cards for until Fall sales start!
