  1. Frock on Friday: Boden Marisa Dress

    Marisa dress by Boden.

    If you’ve had your eye on a Boden dress, now is the time to make your move with the long weekend sale. I’ve actually never bought a dress from Boden before, but I keep coming back to the perennial favourites every few weeks.

    I love the Marisa dress, above, in both the Baltic colourway, as pictured, as well as the leopard print. This fitted dress would work hard in your wardrobe, taking you from work to drinks, and the vintage-inspired collar is a lovely detail. This weekend it’s reduced to $98.40 from $164.

     Sixties Jacquard Dress by Boden.

    I’m also a fan of the Sixties Jacquard dress, above, which finishes above the knee and features some vintage-inspired pockets at the front. I couldn’t get away wearing it without feeling a wee bit Mutton, but it’s a bit of a cutie for younger ladies and right now it’s $82.60 (from $118).

    I love that many of Boden’s designs are available in a wide range of sizes as well as fabric and colour options. It’s well worth reading the buyer reviews at the bottom of each listing, taking note of the reviewer’s size and shape. I’m always interested to read feedback from other busty girls because some cuts just don’t work on women with big boobs. Like me.
