Double Thumbs Dresses #52 * Valentine’s Special *

Merry Monday everyone and welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our weekly roundup of the frocks we have fallen head over heels for and deemed worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. We’re seeing red this week as we prepare for nobody’s everyone’s favourite love-fest, Valentine’s Day. Crack out the violins….

We start our quest for the perfect red dress with a couple of hot contenders from Dickens & Jones at House of Fraser. I don’t believe I have stumbled across this brand before (insert your own what the Dickens joke here) but I must say it was love at first sight. Polka dots, bows and organza? Sign me up!

Scuba Debutante Bardot Frill Mini Dress £40 from ASOS
Scuba Debutante Bardot Frill Mini Dress £40 from ASOS

You can always depend on ASOS to set your heart a flutter (and clear out your bank balance in the process) with their seemingly endless supply of gorgeous dresses. This flouncy frock looks like it would be so much fun to wear and will surely provide you with the only cold shoulder you’ll receive on Valentine’s.

'Matilda' Fabulously Flirty 50's Rockabilly Polka Dot Shirt Dress £29.99 from Lindy Bop
‘Matilda’ Fabulously Flirty 50’s Rockabilly Polka Dot Shirt Dress £29.99 from Lindy Bop

You’ll leave little option but to be swept off your feet after twirling the night away in this fab full-skirted fifties number from Lindy Bop, who have quite the red dress selection. Phwoar.

Buckholme Eyelet Dress £98.50 from Jack Wills
Buckholme Eyelet Dress £98.50 from Jack Wills

You’ll be a sight for sore eyelets in this beautiful red dress from Jack Wills! This is such a lovely frock and perfect for daytime wear too. That’s how I am going to justify buying it, anyway.

Gabby Dress £58 from Motel at Topshop

Glitter-bomb warning!* I am always in favour of an excuse to shimmy in sparkles and this Motel dress is one blingtastic bodycon showstopper.

*If you recognised this as a poor Theme Hospital joke then congratulations! You’re my new BFF

Dolly Bow Prom Dress £34 (was £85) from ASOS

Finally we have two dresses that have actually previously appeared on Double Thumbs but are both so perfect for Valentine’s I’ve included them again. The Emily and Fin Yours Truly dress from Double Thumbs #49 is romance perfection and I’ve been crushing on that ASOS frock since the Double Thumbs Christmas Special. Now that it has been reduced, perhaps it will finally be mine……
