Stop Thief! Sleeveless Dress £55 by Cath Kidston

When we visited the Cath Kidston AW14 press day a couple of weeks back we spent a lot of time fawning over their forthcoming prints and have been eagerly awaiting their arrival. I am therefore pleased to report that the Just In section of their website is currently a VERY EXCITING PLACE for an abundance of the new pieces have arrived, including both Clocks and Stop Thief! in delightful dress from! I really can’t decide which is my favourite, the charming vintage style of Clocks or the playful fun of Stop Thief! Time to hide my debit card.

Padstow Print Prom Dress £59.50 from Oliver Bonas
Padstow Print Prom Dress £59.50 from Oliver Bonas

How unbelievably gorgeous is this dress by Poem at Oliver Bonas? I did a little gasp when it arrived in my inbox. Firstly, I love Padstow so this dress was a winner before I had even looked at it properly. However, when I did have a closer inspection I discovered the prettiest print of pastel houses(!) and cute yachts! It’s all a bit dreamy.

Time for some macaron madness courtesy of Mod Dolly! I love this sweet loose fitting smock dress, especially with that gorgeous empire collar. I know I shouldn’t say this in a dress roundup but they also have this print in possibly the best two piece ever. Sorry, dresses.

Dolores Dress Summer Bouquet £65
Dolores Dress Summer Bouquet £65 by Collectif from Aspire Style

I hadn’t heard of Collectif before their dresses started appearing on the Aspire Style website by my goodness they are all about the twirly dress perfection. This super summery floral dress is just stunning. Look at those adorable buttons!

Unicorn Dress £46
Unicorn Dress £46 from Sugarhill Boutique

The new Sugarhill Boutique collection is making me very happy at the moment! So much pretty! I really love this handdrawn unicorn print which I think looks especially lovely against that dusky blue colour. Plus, you can always count on SB for a good sleeve.

Sunshine Shift Dress £45
Sunshine Shift Dress £45 from Miss Selfridge

This is such a lovely bright dress from Miss Selfridge! It looks like the sun exploded all over it! It makes me want to go on holiday.

Womens Printed Shirt Dress £14 from Peacocks
Womens Printed Shirt Dress £14 from Peacocks

And last but not least is the bargain of the week from Peacocks! I love a good shirt dress and the gorgeous vibant florals make this one a really winner. I usually find Peacocks dresses to be a decent length too, making them perfect for work.

  1. Love the pattern on the Padstow dress. Tried it on in the shop at the weekend and the dress shape just didn’t fit properly, so gutted! Might have to find a similar fabric and make my own instead x
