I ordered a few more fall dresses from Boden and was very pleased with two of them.
This one was my favorite. When I saw that they were making a corduroy dress in a squirrel print, I knew I had to have it! The fit is quite flattering and the print is adorable. The only thing I don’t love about it is again, the bodice. If I slouch even a tiny bit, it poofs out in the front and looks like the bodice is too big on me. If I stand up straight it is nice and fitted, but I am a total sloucher so I know during the day the dress is going to look funny on me. Despite this, I am keeping the dress and plan to wear it with grey tights and these boots.

Boden Highgate Dress
I ended up getting this in the long length, but I don’t know if I actually needed it in long. I’m happy with the fit overall and will keep it with this longer length. The color is very pretty in person and I’m thinking I should pair it with a bright statement necklace. I had planned to wear it with black tights when the weather forces me to wear tights.

Ponte Skater Dress (Second attempt)
I had previously ordered this dress in a 6L in the green color which was too big in the bodice and the darts stuck out funny so I decided to try a 4L in the plum color since that’s what was in stock. Unfortunately the dart problem was solved, but I felt like I couldn’t breathe. For this reason (a pretty good one) the dress is going back. I still really love the fabric and cut of this dress but wish the 6L had worked out.
