Here's was what I thought when it came out online:

Then I ordered these items - and it all went back:

  • Polka Dot Blouse: BEST clothing item in the collection and is GORGEOUS. But runs big, and I'm sized out with nowhere to go from XS unfortunately.
  • Striped T-Neck - extremely oversized and scratchy. Super cute though.
  • Classic Blue Coat - great fit, but very long and not Boden quality. I'm 5ft 6 and still too long on me. I did not find it narrow like the reviews mention.
  • Sneakers - super fun! But you fussy feet complained. They run short, and the platforms do not bend.
  • Solid Sweaters - good fit in an XS so TTS. But scratchy and not Boden quality.
  • Yellow tights - too mustard.
  • Yellow Pullover - on back order! Still waiting.....and hope it's not scatchy.
  • Gigantic Scarf - LOVE! Best accessory in the range. Might get it.

The wovens are generally better quality than the knits, and for the Halogen price - I'm impressed with the collection
