Double Thumbs Dresses #22

Dress fans rejoice! For I am back (finally, right?) with another round up of dresses deemed worthy enough of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. If any of my loved ones are reading this, the answer is yes. Yes please.

Scenic Print Jacquard Dress £36.91 from Chicwish

I’ve been coveting this lovely Chicwish dress for a while but now that it’s on sale it would almost be ridiculous not to buy it. It has pretty much everything I look for in a dress. Lovely long sleeves, a pretty neckline, a full skirt and a beautiful print. There is so much detailing on this dress, it’s actually rather overwhelming – in a good way. Even the white parts of the dress are subject to a jacquard embossed print. I say.

Stripe Prom Dress £80 from Topshop
Stripe Prom Dress £80 from Topshop

Ooof, I do love a prom dress and this black and pink striped number from Topshop is super duper pretty.

Velvet Spangle Collar Dress £62.00 from The White Pepper
Velvet Spangle Collar Dress £62.00 from The White Pepper

It has been great to see such an abundance of lovely velvet dresses around of late but this one from The White Pepper is definitely my pick of the bunch. It is a gorgeous colour and the fun trapeze  shape will totally lend itself to some Christmas party twirling. The thing that sets it apart however is the beautiful, and detachable, gold spangle collar. You can’t go wrong with a bit of detachable spangle.

Polka Dot Dress £35.99 from Zara

Mustard! Polka Dots! Sleeves! Pockets! It’s like Zara have a She and Hem dream dress crib sheet. This is a pretty impressive frock.

Neon Tipped Collar Dress £45 from Miss Selfridge
Neon Tipped Collar Dress £45 from Miss Selfridge

I’m not usually a fan of neon, you can blame my inner 80s child for that one. However, this Miss Selfridge* dress looks set to change all that as I have found myself weirdly drawn to this neon and grey dress. I love the print, I love the shape and I love how the neon tip on the collar gives it a little extra pop. Blimey.

60s Scooter Dress in Bow Print £154 (was £220) by Mademoiselle Tara from ASOS

There’s a lot to love about this pretty 60s style dress from Mademoiselle Tara. Not the price I’ll grant you but, hey, it was ever thus. At least for your money you will get a very pretty patch pocket and a darn great collar. ASOS seem to be throwing out discount codes like they are going out of fashion at the moment so it might be worth keeping your eye on this one.

Womens 50s Dress £16.00 from Peacocks
Womens 50s Dress £16.00 from Peacocks
Spot Jersey Tea Dress £16 from F&F at Tesco

And we finish things off nicely with two fabulous polka dot frocks from Peacocks and F&F* respectively. We shall begin with Peacocks who, as I have said before, have totally nailed the flattering fifties shape. I essentially want any dress they produce in this cut. This dress is also reminiscent of a game of dominoes, which is an added bonus.  F&F’s effort  is also super flattering in a tea dress style and the jersey fabric and tie belt should lend itself nicely to the odd Christmas dinner. I like the slightly bigger dots too. Now, all together now, Polka Polka Polka!
