Is it possible, putting on an article of clothing that was made across the pond, could actually make me feel like a brit? I don’t know Boden UK, lets give it a try.
One day out of nowhere, in my mailbox was a catalog I had never seen before. Boden? The cover had a model wearing a beautiful brightly colored orange & navy linen dress. I love color so I was immediately intrigued. As I stood there flipping through the pages, it reminded of Jcrew but with color overload, (in a good way).
Up to my apt I go, open up my notebook, go to the Boden US site and I was in love. Hooked at first site, I purchased several pieces. Even more exciting, Boden carries tall, or as they refer to it….long. Garments in long have an additional 3 inches of length. Perfect for us tall girls.
Boden UK was founded by Johnnie Boden in 1991. The website boden.co.uk was launched in April 1999. In 2002, the company expanded to America, launching bodenusa.com. Boden’s first shop opened in 2004 in Hanger Lane, London and is still there to date.
I purchased this piece in early spring and now it’s time to pull it out of the closet.
