My no clothes buying thing has been going fairly well - I've managed to stop looking at a lot of sites that encourage spending, and have only bought a couple of new items since our Austerity Programme began in August.
But, the other day I broke my vows and clicked on an email from Boden (British clothing company).
The email promised huge savings (70% off! Free shipping!)
How could I ignore it?
There weren't many things that caught my eye, but then I spotted this skirt:
I'd sort of thought about buying it earlier in the year, as I'm a bit of a stripe obsessive.
At that point, Boden didn't have prices in Aus $ and the shipping was a bit steep, so I ignored it.
Now, however, it was reduced to $44 with FREE shipping and returns! Oh Joy! How on earth could I ignore it, especially as it comes in petite sizes too!
I ordered the 6P, and hey presto! it arrived 4 days later.
it's a winner!
It's cotton with a poly lining (Dani would cringe) - the waist band has a grosgrain ribbon detail, and the quality seems good.
The fit is fairly good - it's a touch baggy around the waist, but that could be fixed by my tailor.
The length is perfect for my 5'2" stature.
A big thumbs up for the stripes matching at the seams. I loathe mis-matching seams!

I do love a surprise bargain!
How about you? Are you a fan of Boden? Any bargains recently?
