Magpie Monday - Boden jacket

The jacket I love most, and wear the most, came from eBay. It is a dark grey cotton Boden 'Photographer' jacket with a boxy shape and four pockets.

Here is a picture of me wearing this jacket with a grey dress from Hobbs. The jacket looks good with dresses - and the pockets are useful.

There is also a lovely printed lining which can just about be seen on the photo below.


I had really coveted this jacket when I originally saw it in the Boden catalogue a couple of years ago, but the full price was £69 so I resisted buying it. Then a year ago saw it on eBay where I managed to buy it for £36.99. And it has been a really good buy as I have worn it 2-3 times a week since then and it washes well.

Update - while writing this post I had a quick look on eBay and found the more recent version of the  'Photographer' jacket for sale through the official Boden eBay shop for a 'buy it now' price of £34.50 including postage. So I have just bought that one too!

    1. Yes indeed! I've managed to buy some lovely Boden stuff on eBay, mostly nearly new. I think people sometimes buy stuff and then decide it's not for them.

    1. I find they are good for basics (jackets, jeans, tops). The only downside is that I usually have to get a size larger in Boden than in most other brands I buy.

    1. Yes I'm so pleased to have found a second one, especially as it is a slightly different style but looks equally wearable.

    Seriously, when you find a garment that's the perfect fit, why not, especially if you can get it at a great price x
