Keep or Return: Boden Dresses
As my return to campus for the fall term creeps closer, I feel the usual "back to school" shopping itch. I had a Boden credit and saw some things on clearance so I decided to make an order. Previously, my only Boden shopping was for Emilia (mini Boden is so cute!). But I liked both of these dresses on the website and wanted to try them out. Neither are made from natural fibers so I do not think they would be worth full price. But the sale prices were reasonable enough. The quality does seem to be there. I'm just not sure about the fits. The shirt dress definitely needs to be hemmed if I do keep it. I don't have a lot of time to decide about either because the return policy for sale stuff so let me know what you think. Note that I would wear a better bra with both and squeezy tights with the shirt dress in particular but am not here.
I'm also happy to do some fit reviews if they will be helpful to anyone. I just wanted input on whether to keep or return first.
