When Boden bought out their Alice heels I was desperate for a pair. Not only were they gorgeous but my second daughter is called Alice and I'm a sucker for things like that! However, the voice of reason struck and I really didn't need more heels. So when they released the flat version I was over the moon. Even more so when the email flashed up that they were heavily reduced, plus I had a voucher - result! (They also do a mid heel - see here).

I absolutely love them. They come up true to size and are so comfortable. I am a huge suede fan so that was the icing on the cake, plus the tassels in the pewter colour work perfectly alongside the black and grey. I have a few pairs of ballet pumps so these are a great addition, they are more structured than a pump and feel more like a shoe as they aren't slip on.

I am sure I've featured this cardigan before but as it's coming into Autumn I wanted to remind you about their cashmere. I bought this a while back, again it was reduced to around the £50 mark. It is probably the best piece of cashmere I own as far as quality goes (I'm talking High Street cashmere here, I'm sure there's some amazing designers pieces out there too!). It's hard to describe but it's like it's been knitted together tighter, a really well made piece. I have worn and worn it, it's a proper work horse in my wardrobe. They have this ribbed jumper in currently which I'm wondering if it will be of similar texture to my cardigan, I will definitely be keeping an eye on it in the sales!
A few photos from their press day earlier this year to follow. There were some stand out pieces which I'm sharing with you however their basics crew neck cashmere (available in a variety of colours) still drew me in.
|I loved this cashmere jumper - the colour was just as gorgeous in the flesh. £99|
They are launching their new British Icons very soon (sign up here to hear about it first). The cardigan and coat below were some of my favourite from the collection - I love it when there's a real story behind what a brand is bringing to us. Even more so when there is going to be less available!
Finishing with a few pairs of shoes and a handbag!
|I can't find these shoes online so I don't think they have been launched yet. The gold are my favourite - you can jazz up a pair of jeans so easily with them.|
|These flats were being 'papped' a lot! They have have them in navy and plum satin also. £99|
|This fur bag was so soft and totally beautiful. The leather straps were well made, I could see this being used as an every day chuck it all in bag, glamming up any outfit! £139, available in two other colours, due in 5 weeks.|
My Alice flats have really been worn so much, I hugely recommend them. Next post will be some recent outfits - apologies in advance - they feature in most of them!
