Hello hello! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses! It’s time once again for our frocktacular roundup of the dresses deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval….
If you haven’t already checked out all-round-awesome-female Dawn O’ Porter’s clothing line BOB then you are seriously missing a treat. Her latest collection features three fabulous novelty prints by designer Karen Mabon which each seek to highlight and celebrate sexual equality! How amazing is that?! I love this 80s inspired frock which features women being all badass in the workplace. YES DAWN.
You’d be chev-wrong not to love this delightful Warehouse number! I’m loving those big bold colours and who doesn’t love a good bat-wing to flap around? It also comes with a nifty matching belt to cinch you in at the waist. What a triumph.
We do like a pop of yellow here at She and Hem so imagine how happy I was to spy this little beauty on the Boden New In page. This frock, much like me, is lightweight and drapey. I am loving that super relaxed (but also super flattering) silhouette with those delightful 3/4 length sleeves.
It’s another sleevey wonder from Warehouse who continue to make my bank balance nervous with this beautiful red floral dress – aren’t those just the dreamiest flute sleeves? I love the cute high neck detail too. Swoon.
This lace skater dress from Ted Baker is simply stunning. Despite looking rather white in pictures, the website assures me it’s actually pink – which is good news if you’re going to be a wedding guest any time soon as this would clearly make for excellent wedding attire. The skirt is pleated too, how trendy.
(Cue 500 fruit puns)
Oooh what a fruity little number this 1950s inspired dress from Lady Vintage is. No need to feel like a melon with this fabulous kitsch frock! I’m going bananas for it!
I am in love with this floaty little chiffon affair from ASOS. Those sheer sleeves combined with the contrasting black and white detailing is just divine. Plus look at that high ruffly collar! It’s just all amazing and I need it in my life.
I like big bows and I cannot lie………. which is why this M&S dress is right up my big bow loving street! This classic shift dress is ripe for layering over the top of exciting novelty print shirts, of which I own approximately 461.
