My alternative Boden entry

I may be living the American dream but I haven't quite forgotten my Nappy Valley roots. Nothing sums up Nappy Valley more than Boden, and now, fellow south Londoner and blogging queen sans pareil, Dulwich Mum, has created a wonderful Alternative Boden Catalogue. Take a look at her creations here if you want a good giggle. In the meantime, here is my entry for the Alternative Boden calendar which she aims to create. Ladies and gentlemen....the Boden family.


Emma (Mummy) wears Yummy Mummy Top in 'Wallpaper' with white 'Liz Hurley' skirt and forced grin. Favourite thing: flirting with the builders and handing Harry over to the au pair.

Harry wears 'Little Prince' stripey top in blue and 'who is this woman?' grimace. Likes: Extra Mandarin lessons.

Oliver (Daddy Boden) wears Cuddly Cricket Jumper and handsome leer in 'Slimeball'. Favourite thing: feeling up the au pair.


Birgitta (au pair) wears 'I'm just a little girlie' Hoody in bubblegum pink and come-hither look. Favourite thing: Shagging.

Priceless - just choked on my NZ sav blanc (chablis soooo south of the river dah-ling).

OH thinks we are bonkers. He is right. Question is: why has it taken him so long to notice?

Excellent post. I think Daddy Boden has that smug 'I've got a lovely Au pair' grin!

Mom/Mum said...

LOVE this! Made me LOL. How are you? I have so many of your posts to catch up on. Abscence makes the heart grow fonder n all that....it's good to be delving back into blogosphere though.

Oh my! I'm glad I'd already finished my coffee when I read this!

Hilarious, we're far too common for Boden in Walthamstow Village so this is all new to me.

Michelloui said...

This is HILARIOUS! I havent seen any of these yet. Will watch for more. At last... Boden not taken seriously.

Love these comments!
That's a photo of me by the way, the legs that daddy is caressing.
When I am not shoving donuts in my head I am officially a leg model.

brilliant, loving the extra mandarin lessons & leg-caressing - nearly spat my coffee all over the keyboard...

Well That's a Good Scottish Name... said...

This is hilarious! I had not heard of Boden until we moved here to the UK. I think it is almost like the American J.Crew of sorts...
