Boden Sale – Alexa Dress – My Sales Bargains – Day 1 of 4
Taking Advantage of the Boden Sale to plan my AW14 Wardrobe
Over the next few days I am going to bring you my own personal Finds in the Sales. I start off today on Day 1 of 4 with the bargain I got from the Boden Sale. As we are now in Mid July most retailers are now in Sale. The Boden Sale has up to 70% off and there will not be a better time than now to think carefully and plan your AW14.
I found this wonderful 60s inspired design dress which is available now in the French Navy Blue in a UK14R and from a UK16 Regular Length up to and including all the sizes (in both Regular and Long Lengths) to a UK22L. The dress is £39.60 for the French Navy and £31.50 for the Camel colour. (The Camel colour is also available in a UK14R AND a UK16R – UK22L).
I love this dress especially as the colour is so in season and French Navy is a colour that will also factor quite strongly going in to the Autumn and Winter of 2014. It is lined and therefore sits beautifully. I call it my Jackie Kennedy dress (all I need now is the pill box hat to complete the Jackie Kennedy Style look).

Hear what I have to say about this dress
I am wearing the 18L. I am also 5’9″ tall so I find the Long Length an attractive and elegant ‘just above the knee’ look. My problem is my Middle area so I am always trying to dress to minimise this area. The design of this Alexa Dress is perfect in that all the classic tricks to deflect attention away from a larger middle are employed. The 3/4 length sleeves help define the waist and the seam detail in the upper bodice area of the dress also take attention above the middle area and help suggest the line of the waist too.
All considered this is a ‘steal of a dress’ for the money and the uses that I will get out of it. It is fully lined and is a medium weight so is trans-seasonal. In the colder winter days all I need to do is wear a thermal cami vest underneath for added warmth. The dress is also machine washable.
