Double Thumbs Dresses #55

Hello dear reader! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our roundup of the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted double thumbs seal of approval. I can tell you hand on heart that this, the 55th edition, has truly tested the limits of my bank balance. Send help.

Print Me Pretty Dress Paris £68.80 from Miss Patina
Print Me Pretty Dress Paris £68.80 from Miss Patina

Or, preferably, send me this dress! I can’t even bring myself to look at the Miss Patina website at the moment for fear of the damage I might do. Everything is just so incredibly beautiful! This Parisian print is my pick of the bunch thanks to that super adorable illustration. What an Eiffel.

French Market dress £89.95 by Joules
French Market dress £89.95 by Joules from John Lewis

Oui oui! I am obviously taking my inspiration from the French as this market town print dress from Joules is also pickling my onions. How dreamy is that 50’s shape? and the colours are simply gorgeous.

Daisy Spray Beach Dress £50 from Cath Kidston
Daisy Spray Beach Dress £50 from Cath Kidston

It’s bright yellow, it’s got polka dots AND it’s Cath Kidston…..what’s not to love? I’m slightly obsessed with those thick straps and the polka dots are, prepare to sound the twee klaxon, actually super cute daisies! Oh CK, you sure do know the way to my floral loving heart. I think this is the perfect dress for Summer.

Beach hut short sleeve shirt dress £40 by Brakeburn
Beach hut short sleeve shirt dress £40 by Brakeburn from House of Fraser

I’ve been waiting ages for a good beach hut print (I know, I know, haven’t we all) and one has finally appeared thanks to Brakeburn. I love this little shirt shift dress (easy for you to say) as the short sleeves, little collar and tie waist make it super easy to wear!

Parasol Print Dress £22 from TU
Parasol Print Dress £22 from TU

There’s nothing shady about this parasol print dress from TU although you will have to leave your house in order to obtain it as it’s not available online. Boo you, Sainsbury’s! It’s a gorgeous print though and I love the the green and blues together. Let’s just hope it hasn’t para-sold out (sorry).

Dress With All Over Pom Pom Print & Detail £65 by Lazy Oaf
Dress With All Over Pom Pom Print & Detail £65 by Lazy Oaf from ASOS

Pom pom hem! This Lazy Oaf dress has an actual pom pom hem! Made out of pom poms! If Victoria and I ever decide we need blogger nicknames I am totally having ‘pom pom hem’ as mine. What a thing! Even aside from the whole pom pom hem thing, this dress is obviously brilliant with an all over multicoloured pom pom print. POM POM.

Barcelona Dress £39 by Louche from Joy
Barcelona Dress £39 by Louche from Joy

I adore this red 50’s inspired dress from Louche. It looks so pretty and I love the detail that has gone into the print and the beautiful looking hem, which is apparently a unique broderie analgise hem dontchaknow. Whatever it is it’s lovely and it looks very flattering too!

Sing For Your Summer Dress £55 by Trollied Dolly
Sing For Your Summer Dress £55 by Trollied Dolly

Last but not least we have a Trollied Dolly strawberry dress that is ripe for picking! It’s certainly a berry good print and looks lovely set against the peachy tone of the dress. I would definitely accessorise this one with lashings of cream!
