Boden, Blogging & Bubbly!

Sunday, 12 May 2013

Very excitingly, last week I was invited to attend the Press Day preview of Boden's Autum/Winter 2013 collection at Somerset House in London. Would I come along and blog? You betcha!! It's one of my favourite fashion brands: how could I refuse?


It feels a bit like autumn in the UK at the moment, when it is in fact supposed to be spring, so it really was no hardship to pop along to Somerset House and spend an evening perusing rails of delicious outfits which will be on sale before we can say 'Where's the barbeque?' and we're back in our winter coats again.



The new collection is an eclectic mix of patterns ~ lots of stripes and spots still around ~ and colours ~ a mix of neutrals and gorgeous pops of lipstick pinks, aqua blues and mustard yellows. All of course in the great quality that we've come to know and love from Boden. Quite a lot of fabric stroking went on over the course of the evening!



Loving this chunky grey knit...


And these cute shoes!


Somerset House provided a lovely setting for ooing and ahhing over all these lovely things...



Gorgeousness was everywhere you looked!
 

 And a glass or two of bubbly didn't go down that badly either!


 Each room was brilliantly styled ~ especially Boden kids collection ~ such fun and great colours


Crafty, cool and a touch retro ~ right up my street!





All in all, a great way to spend an evening ~ camera in one hand, champagne glass in the other ~ and a chance to start cherry picking my Autumn/Winter wardrobe: what more could a girl ask for? I'm just glad nothing was for sale, or there might just have been a credit card mash up before the end of the night...


~ With special thanks to Boden ~

  1. Lovely pictures, the champagne was lovely too wasn't it. Only a small sip for me as I was driving later that evening. It did feel autumnal that day so looking at knits and coats was quite nice. Made a little wishlist of things I'd like to have a look at again come Preview time :)

    1. I could have bought the whole lot Lou! All that lovely colour really perked up my day and everything always looks even better after a glass or two, doesn't it?!
