The Boden Press Day Part 2 – Accessories and Mini Boden

You will be pleased to know that I took full advantage of the small window of opportunity between leaving the Dental Hospital this morning and the anaesthetic wearing off – and did some shopping.

Naturally I was only acting on the advice of a dentist friend of mine who reminded me that it was essential to my recovery. I think I managed to scare one or two shop assistants though.  Due to the effects of the anaesthetic I wasn’t aware of the blood dribbling out of the corner of my mouth.  I thought that I did a very good impression of Dracula actually – well, either that or a Great White Shark.

I came across this illustration in a library book that I was reading to our youngest today. It’s from the book “Dogger” which was written by Shirley Hughes in 1977 and I thought it apt, after the Daily Mail article last week.

I love what the Mums are wearing – prints, colour, heels, handbags, hair up, flares, accessories – just as I remember the school gates when I was growing up.

Anyway, back to a few Boden accessories which I thought that I would share with you. There was a whole row of glass cases with items displayed inside and naturally these patent (and printed) items…

…together with these sparkly wedges, caught my eye.

For anyone who likes a metallic pump, these might just be for you.

And of course here’s that little bit of leopard print to add to your Wardrobe. I know that there are very mixed feelings about leopard print but I think that a little worn in the right way can be very stylish and it’s a great way for bringing an outfit together which contains both black and brown. In fact, it gives the perfect excuse to put them together when you might not have done so otherwise.

These are a lovely pair of biker boots – again, one of my favourite staple items in my winter Wardrobe.

And these grey jeans from the Johnnie B range which have the addition of a military sequin stripe. I think that I might be giving these a whirl.

And finally some shots from the children’s ranges – I just loved these cute hangers on the rail of girls clothes.

And these on the boys clothes. 

These shots are just designed to give a flavour of the colour palette in one of the stories of the girls clothes…

in the clothes for baby girls…

and in the clothes for baby boys.

And finally, here’s the Hush parcel which has been sitting at the Post Office for a few days now as I have been unable to collect it but which my lovely hubby collected for me this morning.  I will share the contents of it with you over the next day or so.

Yesterday I promised that I would bring you the story of a very inspiring lady.  There’s a minor technical hitch on that one of a photographic nature so once it is sorted, I will bring her to you.

Enjoy your Saturday – please feel free to have an extra glass of something on my behalf tonight as I am banned from alcohol, which is a shame as it is the only night that I have any – not that I am feeling sorry for myself or anything.

    Love the bag and the boots. I am hankering after a leather hunter /saddle bag, just like I had in the late '70s / early 80s. I had 3, different sizes, wish I'd kept them.

    Wouldn't it be great if those things that we parted with, but now wish we hadn't, magically re-appeared? How excited would we all be?

    I loved those sparkling wedges too, did feel the kids clothes had benefitted from the new designer with an update to the silhouettes and fine details.
