In the spring of 2011, I wrote a post about my first experience with Boden. In the post, I discussed that I had a positive experience with a skirt purchase and that I planned on purchasing more. Well, I did!!
Recently, I purchased the Limited Edition Amazing Embroidered Skirt in navy/gold. The exterior is 92% wool, 5% polyamide and 3% cashmere. This skirt is well-made! I do not often wear jewelry, so I like to find pieces that have visual interest that do not border on the whimsical. The Amazing Skirt offers me the fun elegance that I require. I also love that this skirt was available in Navy. Navy seems to be relegated to the frumpy and stodgy variety, but it deserves much better treatment. I am very happy to say that I seen a lot of pretty navy items this year, so someone out there is listening.
I was kind of surprised that the skirt looks shorter on me than on the model, but I do love to showcase my legs (as often as I can). 🙂
