Double Thumbs Dresses #74

Hello hello! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our roundup of the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted double thumbs seal of approval! Let’s crack on…

Elisha Zoo Dress £50 from Louche at Joy
Elisha Zoo Dress £50 from Louche at Joy

This Louche dress is so fantastically ridiculous that I actually burst out laughing when I first saw it! Look at it! It’s covered in animal heads (a happy to be here sort of head, not the ‘mounted on your wall for LOLZ’ sort) including pandas, racoons, cats, donkeys and elephants. You should probably snap it up faster than you can say “We Bought A Zoo”.

Desert Cranes $109.99 by Emily and Fin from Modcloth
Desert Cranes $109.99 (£76ish) by Emily and Fin from Modcloth

Just when we thought we couldn’t get any more excited about the new SS16 Emily and Fin collection this orange beauty appears on Modcloth! It’s SO gorgeous! How lovely are those cranes? It would be like wearing a sunset. Dreamy.

Printed Pleated Dress £69 from La Redoute

Floral Dress with 3/4 Sleeves £35 from La Redoute
Floral Dress with 3/4 Sleeves £35 from La Redoute
Striped Shift Dress £35 from La Redoute
Striped Shift Dress £35 from La Redoute

I somehow ended up stumbling onto the La Redoute website this week in search of something or other. I used to love flicking through their catalogs as a moody teenager but I must admit I hadn’t really given them much thought in recent years. Turns out I’ve been missing out!  I discovered page after page of rather lovely dresses at pretty reasonable prices. MY FAVE! There are some really fresh frocks that would be perfect for Spring and also some nice bits of vintage detailing. I think the top frock is quite Orla Kielyesque, no?

Skater Dress in Ponte with Collar and Ruffle Detail £28 from ASOS
Skater Dress in Ponte with Collar and Ruffle Detail £28 from ASOS

I adore a red dress and this little ASOS skater dress looks to be smoking hot! I love the ruffle neckline detailing and the collar is super cute.

Coppelia Embellished Ballet Tulle Dress £130 by Needle & Thread at ASOS
Coppelia Embellished Ballet Tulle Dress £130 by Needle & Thread at ASOS

Someone needs to keep me the heck away from Needle & Thread because seriously, I just want it all! This floaty pink tulle ballet number of my dreams is oh so pretty and sparkly. It would make a darn great bridesmaid dress too *sigh*.

Tweed Dress with Layered Skirt £49.99 from Zara
Tweed Dress with Layered Skirt £49.99 from Zara

Last but not least we are going all chic-and-Chanel in this tweed affair from Zara. I’m so down with that big black bow and the whole thing is just rather classy isn’t it?

Hip to be Berkeley Square

We love any excuse for a girly sleepover so when we were invited to stay the night at a plush suite only a 10 minute walk from our houses, we jumped at the chance!  Overnight bags were packed, popcorn was acquired and pyjamas were the outfits of choice.

The plush suite in question is part of The Crescent, a Grade II listed Georgian Townhouse that is made up of five one-bedroom apartments. It’s rather grand indeed with each apartment taking up an entire floor! The Crescent itself is owned by the rather-fancy-indeed Berkeley Square Hotel, which is a 30 second walk round the corner and where we headed to check-in. After a warm welcome and a tour of our suite, which included a look at the communal garden, we were informed that we were also entitled to membership at The Square Club, their own private members club(!),  and the Nuffield gym and swimming pool. After digesting all that information we proceeded to dissolve into fits of giggles as we discovered to our eternal joy that the TV was a 42″ projector that filled pretty much an entire wall. There would be no gym going for these two bloggers.

We would happily have stayed for a week! Which, thanks to the handy bespoke kitchen, you easily could. There are so many gorgeous personal touches that made our suite feel so special. As well as the beautiful furniture (total interior design inspo), we loved the effort to keep things local with the complimentary welcome basket of fresh fruit, sherry, loose leaf tea, fresh coffee and hand baked biscuits all coming with tags explaining where in Bristol they had come from.

We also MUST talk about the word’s grandest bathroom (it even has a fireplace) which provided further giggling opportunities thanks to the double door being made of glass. We can’t imagine you would stay in a one bedroom suite with someone you didn’t know well but be prepared to watch your companion bathe as you lie in bed. STEAMY. If that doesn’t appeal, you also have the option to watch a TV that comes complete with Netflix and YouTube. And yes we did lie in bed watching our own YouTube channel, what of it?

Hip to be Berkeley Square | She and Hem Hip to be Berkeley Square | She and Hem

After a very comfy night in our king-sized bed, we nipped back up to The Berkeley Square for breakfast at their highly regarded in-house restaurant, The Square Kitchen. We always love it when a hotel breakfast comes with a menu to order from so we were very happy indeed when we were presented with a nice list of faves! Hello eggs royale! As well as the menu selection, there was also a fabulous spread of fresh fruit, pastries, cereals, juices and, err, spreads to choose from. All the food was delicious and it was certainly a great way to start our day of site seeing (oh no wait, we live here! back to bed for more YouTube it is….)

All in all it was a real treat! The only mild miffling point we could make was the length of the free wifi password (seriously it was like tapping in War and Peace) which really isn’t much to complain about, is it?

Thanks for having us!

How purrrrfect is this ASOS cat bag? It’s so darn cute! I love the straw design and the detachable gold strap makes it a versatile investment. Meow!

Flat Top Cat Eye Sunglasses With Metal Sandwich And Flat Lens £12.00 from ASOS

I’ve been obsessing over these ASOS sunglasses since I bought them last month. They are so darn cool! The shape is super fabulous and the silver glitter just makes them all the more special. Currently debating whether to buy them in gold too…..

Dainty Tights £10 by Jonathon Aston from Topshop/MyTights
Dainty Tights £10 by Jonathon Aston from Topshop/MyTights

We LOVE nude polka-dot tights (as is evidenced by the fact we wear them in nearly every outfit post) but they can be rather elusive. I was therefore very excited to find this pair from Jonathan Aston on the Topshop website which feature polka-dots in different shades of blue! Woo! They only have Size M left but these beauts are also available at the brilliant MyTights (who actually have them discounted to £8.50 atm).

Avocado Hairties £8 from Topshop
Avocado Hairties £8 from Topshop

AvocaWOAH would you look at those! Topshop have got some seriously fun hair accessories going on at the moment but I couldn’t resist this fitting tribute to everyone’s favourite Instagramable fruit.

Hi Disc Necklace £8 from Urban Outfitters

Say “hi” to your new favourite piece of jewellery! I love the simplicity of this quirky Urban Outfitters necklace.

ADIO HOTSHOT Western Ankle Boots £45.00 from ASOS
ADIO HOTSHOT Western Ankle Boots £45.00 from ASOS

Blimey! These ASOS boots are pretty ridiculous right? I think we’d all be a lot happier if we each owned a pair of these shoes. It’s like a party for your feet!

FYI this party also comes in a BLACK GLITTERY VERSION OMG.

Black Telephone Dial Bag £20 from Rare
Black Telephone Dial Bag £20 from Rare

If you’re a novelty bag fan (hi) then you may be pleased to discover that Rare have got a lot of super affordable ones on their website – including cassette tapes, lips and even a Russian doll. How fab is this telephone affair though? The little ‘I Love To Hear The Sound Of Your Voice’ detail is too cute. Love!

White floral print frilly dress £55 from River Island

White lace jacquard sleeveless dress £65 from River Island
White lace jacquard sleeveless dress £65 from River Island

I’ve really been loving River Island lately! They’ve been adding so many dreamy SS16 pieces to their website that I seem to be adding to my wishlist on a daily basis (weirdly I can never find anything in store though). With an abundance of polkadots, organza, floral and lace between them, these two beauts are my current picks of the bunch.

Abderdy Belted Oar Print Dress £49.50 from Jack Wills
Abderdy Belted Oar Print Dress £49.50 from Jack Wills

I’m just going to stick my oar in and declare how much I enjoy this new nautical print by Jack Wills. It’s a lovely summery affair with a full skirt and fit and flare shape but, thankfully, I think it would look just as nice with a bright cardigan and some thick woolly tights.

Lydia Cherry Jacquard Dress £55 by Sugarhill Boutique at John Lewis
Lydia Cherry Jacquard Dress £55 by Sugarhill Boutique at John Lewis

You can’t beat a sweet cherry and this super pretty print from Sugarhill Boutique is a real fruity number. The delicate pinks and greys look gorgeous set against the white of this textured dress.

Synchronised Swimmers Dress £75 by Emily and Fin at Aspire Style/Modcloth
Synchronised Swimmers Dress £75 by Emily and Fin at Aspire Style/Modcloth

You might recognise this fun frock from our previous style post (which you should totally read as it includes the chance to win a £50 Aspire Style voucher)! It’s one of my absolute favourites from the new Emily and Fin collection – the print is just perfection! It’s available from Aspire Style and, for our American pals, Modcloth.

Lace Shirt Dress £99 from Warehouse
Lace Shirt Dress £99 from Warehouse

This lace shirt dress from Warehouse is the stuff of dreams. Argh it’s SO pretty! I love the shirt detailing at the top with the little collar. And then that lace overlay! Stunning.

Pink Peony Printed Lace Insert Gown £350 from Needle & Thread at Libery
Pink Peony Printed Lace Insert Gown £350 from Needle & Thread at Libery

Speaking of dreaming….I am probably never going to own this beautiful Needle & Thread dress but gosh darn isn’t it something? It looks like it would have excellent wafting abilities and that fabulous floral peony print with the little lace inserts is just wonderful. Sigh.

Boat Trips with Aspire Style

Boat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | Bristol Boat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | BristolBoat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | Bristol

Ahoy there! The lovely folk at Aspire Style have kindly invited us to take part in their latest Blogger Style Challenge. We were given the not-so-arduous task of choosing and styling a dress from their wonderful selection. As massive Emily and Fin fans, we couldn’t resist nabbing a couple of their newest fabulous prints. Aren’t they lovely? As regular readers will know, we do love to match our outfits to the local scenery, so we ventured on down to the colourful harbourside in search of the perfect shooting place.

Boat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | BristolBoat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | Bristol
Boat Trips with Aspire Style | She and Hem | Bristol

We found the ideal location in the form of a cute boat trip office near to the SS. Great Britain. If you’ve ever been to Bristol, you will know that we are BIG on boat trips here. I (Victoria) even incorporated one into my wedding day! To celebrate this, I chose the glorious vintage inspired sailboat print Isobel Dress*, then went a bit potty for pastels with a pink 50’s cardigan from Boden* and matching pink brogues from New Look. Although Spring has officially sprung, it was a little windy around the water, so I accessorised sensibly with white woolly tights from UK Tights. My pink belt is from Primark, although it is no longer available – I’m afraid that ship has sailed.

Jo’s Jenny dress* is covered in such a super synchronised swimmer print that she was getting compliments all day long. We both completely fell in love with the flattering cut of the dress and the contrasting blue buttons. You’ll definitely be seeing us in more of the Jenny cuts, they are so beautiful – we are going to dive right in! Jo teamed her swimmers with a pop of metalic with silver flats from Topshop and vintage silver belt. Her fabulous flamingo cardigan is from Bryony and Co* and her polkadot tights are from…you guessed it, UK Tights. They go swimmingly well together indeed!

Hello and welcome to the 24th Accessories to Murder! Are you ready to delve into the world of amazing Easter accessories? Excellent. Without further ado, here are the accessories that have made it onto this week’s She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Bunny Shirt | She and Hem
Oversized Bunny T-Shirt | £14.00 | ASOS

This is the best Bunny T-Shirt I’ve seen all day. Perfect for your Easter #ootd, because that’s a thing, right? I’m not usually a fan of a slogan tee, but the super cute ‘Some Bunny Loves Me’ is so subtle and adorable, I’m hopping mad about it! Boing!

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Bunny Trainers | She and Hem
Minna Parikka Bunny Ears & Tail Trainers | £195.00 | ASOS

Ever worn trainers with ears and a pink fluffy tail? What am I thinking, of course you have! Well, why not buy another pair just in time for Easter? You may think they are expensive, but compared to how much money I usually spend on chocolate over Easter, these are an absolute bargain.

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Bunny Leggings | She and Hem
Easter Bunny Printed Leggings | £18.00 | ASOS

Love a bit of hare-obics? Then be the most hip hop gal at your eggs-ercize class next week in these bunny leggings from ASOS. Fun, yet practical enough to climb out of any rabbit hole.

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Bunny Earrings | She and Hem
Eve & Fox Gold Rabbit Studs | £49.00 | Joy

Abracadabra! If I was a magician I would pull these super studs straight outta my hat. Handmade in Britain with 22ct Matt Gold, remember these studs are for life, not just for Easter. Jog on down to Joy to check out their jazzy jewellery collection!

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Pug Topshop Socks | She and Hem
Easter Pug Socks | £3.50 | Topshop

Now it’s time for some pretty egg-ceptional socks. What’s not to love about a perplexed pug wearing bunny ears surrounded by floating eggs? It’s time to treat your feet, and don’t forget about Topshop’s three pairs for £8 deal. Chicks and fluffy lamb versions also available, but I’m all about those pugs.

Accessories to Murder #25 Easter Special | Rabbit Bag | She and Hem
Kissing Rabbits Medium Toiletry Bag | £12.00 | Anorak

Banish those bad hare days by keeping all of your carrots essentials in this kissing rabbit toiletry Bag. I’m not sure how I came across Anorak, but they have some really great novelty prints. I may have just treated myself to this fantastic squirrel bag for a ridiculous £3.20. Call me nutty, but I can’t resist a bargain that great.

Until next week, keep accessorizing!

ASOS added a whole host of beautiful occasion frocks to their website this week as part of their Salon collection. It’s basically just my dream come true with pretty pinks, sparkles, lace and tulle all begging to be worn! It’s all just so girly and pretty! Swoon. I need to find several weddings/proms/supermarket openings to attend! I might just have to buy one but I’ve watched all the catwalk videos and I really can’t pick a favourite. First world problems etc.

Printed Button Up Front Dress £60 from Braintree at House of Fraser
Printed Button Up Front Dress £60 from Braintree at House of Fraser

I had not heard of Braintree before I stumbled across this dress on the House of Fraser website but my novelty print-o-meter was mighty pleased to discover them! This Parisian print is a true delight with the Moulin Rouge windmill and French cafes surrounded by pretty trees, lamposts and bridges. The shirt dress style is also rather nifty thanks to that full skirt and adjustable tie.

Boat Print Poplin Dress £108 from Anthropologie
Boat Print Poplin Dress £108 from Anthropologie

I am loving the vibrant coral colour of this boat print shift dress from Anthropologie. The cut looks ever so flattering and it has pockets! It’s a miracle.

Flower Pots Broderie Collar Cotton Dress £65 from Cath Kidston
Flower Pots Broderie Collar Cotton Dress £65 from Cath Kidston

I am flower potty for this new Cath Kidston dress! It’s so so pretty with a lovely spring floral print (plus pots!). The pastel pink colour is a welcome change to the many darker shades I seem to have picked up from CK of late and that adorable white broderie collar is just lovely!

Stripe Picnic Dress with Double Layer £50 from ASOS
Stripe Picnic Dress with Double Layer £50 from ASOS

Back to ASOS to finish us off with this aptly named (because it was exactly what it made me think of) picnic dress!  This frock is crying out for a big boater hat and a wicker hamper. And an actual picnic with actual friends.

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories

Hello and welcome to the 23rd Accessories to Murder! It’s another special edition this week looking at all things weddings! Whether you are a bride to be, a wedding guest or you just blooming love white, I’m sure you’ll find something you will adore. Are you ready to delve into the world of amazing wedding accessories? Excellent. Without further ado, here are the accessories that have made it onto this week’s She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
The Olivia White Rose and Baby’s Breath Flower Crown | £32 | Beauxoxo

This beautiful Flower Crown from Beauxoxo is perfect for all of those Summer boho brides out there. Modeled by the gorgeous Olivia from What Olivia Did, it is made up of white roses, baby’s breath and ribbon. Thankfully it’s fully adjustable, as your head will certainly grow with all of the compliments you’ll receive wearing this beaut.

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
Maya All Over Sequin Cape in Silver Sequins | £55.00 | ASOS

All bridesmaids are super heroes, but ensure yours are the most glamorous in this sparkly Sequin Cape.  This whole look above from ASOS is excellent and totally versatile, which is an extra perk, as it means your BFF’s have an awesome dress and cape combo to wear over and over again!

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
Beaded Bow Clutch | £32 | John Lewis

Like the Bow Box Bag in last week’s post, this gold Bow Clutch is just bowtiful! Don’t you just love wonderful wedding accessories! The website states that it’s compact yet spacious, so I imagine it’s just the right size for a wedding. It comes with a chain strap, so you can easily jump up and catch the bride’s bouquet without dropping all of your bits and bobs. Brilliant.

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
JIG Metallic Mary-Janes | £69.00 | Topshop

Well aren’t these Mary-Janes so damn groovy? Weddings often involve a lot of standing and a heck of a lot of dancing, so it’s a really good idea to wear block heels, especially if they are also cute and shiny. Topshop have got loads of pretty party shoes at the moment, but these are by far my favourites.

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
Square Sunray Compact Mirror| £9.00 | Monsoon

When I was a bridesmaid for Jo, she gave me a box of Thank You goodies which included a gorgeous mirror. It was such an adorable thing to do as every time I use the mirror, I think about the lovely day that we shared. Seeing this Mirror in Monsoon reminded me of this, and I would definitely recommend the idea to anyone putting together little packages for their family and friends. A small but thoughtful gift!

Accessories to Murder #24 Wedding Accessories | She and Hem
My Best Friend Necklace | £20 | notonthehighstreet.com

Speaking of excellent gifts, this sterling silver necklace and card set would be so splendid as a present for your bridesmaids. They could even wear it on the day. It comes in yellow or rose gold, with a cute button design or the infinity design seen above. Notonthehighstreet.com even throw in a card, marvelous!

Check out our Valentine’s Special for more gift ideas and until next week, keep accessorizing!

Double Thumbs Dresses #71

Hello hello! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our roundup of the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted double thumbs seal of approval! Let’s crack on….

Beatrice Sleeves Red Walking Zoo £148 from Bryony & Co
Beatrice Sleeves Red Walking Zoo £148 from Bryony & Co

If you follow us over on Instagram you may have spotted me sporting this insanely perfect zoo animal print dress from Bryony & Co (formerly Poppy) whilst at London Fashion Week. It’s SO great and received no end of compliments! Flamin-go and check out the rest of the new collection!

Sunbathers Linen Shift Dress £67.50 from Laura Ashley
Sunbathers Linen Shift Dress £67.50 from Laura Ashley

Hooray for a new fun Laura Ashley print! How delightful are those sunbathers? I really appreciate a a big bold print (what’s the point in a quirky print if everyone has to come right up to you to work out what it is?!) and the colours really make this pop. Keeping my fingers crossed that this super cute swimmers print t-shirt appears in frock form too.

Shirt Dress In Mini Strawberries Print £65 from Lazy Oaf
Shirt Dress In Mini Strawberries Print £65 from Lazy Oaf

You know how much I love a fruity number and this Lazy Oaf strawberry affair is my pick of the bunch (I must have made that joke at least 12 times now). It’s all rather pretty and floaty isn’t it?

Safari Print Dress £55 from Hell Bunny at Aspire Style
Safari Print Dress £55 from Hell Bunny at Aspire Style

Safari, so good! I am loving this vintage inspired zebra print dress from Hell Bunny. The v-neck and little button detailing are both so lovely.

Pleated Hem Shift Dress £39.50 from M&S
Pleated Hem Shift Dress £39.50 from M&S

The fashion bigwigs at M&S were obviously unable to reach a decision whilst debating how best to transform the humble shift dress. ‘Add a bow!’ cried Jimmy, ‘stick a corsage on it!‘ yelled Jenny, ‘incorporate some pleats!‘ chimed in Justin. Personally, I’m a big fan of the result.

Edie Floral Skater £45 from Oasis
Edie Floral Skater £45 from Oasis

If it’s a yellow floral dress with a cute collar, chances are it’s going to make an appearance on Double Thumbs. This Oasis number is crying out to be worn in the spring sunshine! Lovely.

Accessories to Murder #23

Hello and welcome to the 23rd Accessories to Murder! Are you ready to delve into the world of amazing accessories? Excellent! Without further ado, here are the accessories that have made it onto this week’s She and Hem’s Most Wanted.

Accessories to Murder #23 | She and Hem | Novelty Bag
ASOS Bow Box Bag | £32.00 | ASOS

Pretend everyday is your birthday with this Bow Box Bag from ASOS. It’s cute, sparkly and has a massive bow. What’s not to love? I feel like I can’t move onto the next item without also mentioning those incredible pink bow heels. Now I can’t seem to find them online, but I have found a silver version here, which are just as special. Bow fans, you are very welcome.

Accessories to Murder #23 | She and Hem | Novelty Shell Bag
ASOS Shell Clutch Bag | £28.00 | ASOS

Running with the novelty bag theme for a moment, next up we have this Shell Clutch Bag, chosen especially for all of our mermaid readers. Believe me, I’ve checked the stats and those mermaids love to keep a keen eye on our Most Wanted. This clutch is such a beaut that I’d be more than happy to shell out a few clams for it. If it’s not for you, then get the shell out of here!

Accessories to Murder #23 | She and Hem | Novelty Poptart Phone Case
I’ve Got Your Snack iPhone Case | $28.99 | Modcloth

All of my sugary dreams have come true because some absolute genius has created a Poptart Phone Case. Here’s hoping it’s the start of a whole Poptart range. I want to see Poptart pyjamas, Poptart bikinis and Poptart pants. If any of these things already exist, let me know, yeah?

Accessories to Murder #23 | She and Hem | Novelty Purse Kate Spade
Cedar Street Popsicle Lacey Purse | £160 | Kate Spade

Although this purse is more Popsicle than Poptart, it’s definitely just as tasty. Kate Spade is full of gorgeous items at the moment, but I thought I’d give you the scoop on this ice cream dream. The fun and colourful print also comes in other flavours, with a sleek and slim card wallet also available. Treat yourself and get them both.

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Novelty Picnic Basket Bag
Picnic Basket Across Body Bag | £39.00 | Accessorize

Accessorize seem to be going out of their way to ensure I’ve saved up no pennies for my upcoming holiday. First up I just HAD to buy the Robot Bag, followed by the awesome Radio Bag, and now they go and release the twee as you like Picnic Basket Bag. I’m an utter basket case for gingham. Top Tip, if you can find a store with any Robot Bags left, they are now measly FIVE POUNDS!

Accessories to Murder | She and Hem | Novelty Cheshire Cat Shoes
Chesire Cat Pump | £109.00 | Irregular Choice via Office

To be honest, I’ve not completely made up my mind about these Cheshire Cat Pumps, part of the Alice in Wonderland collaboration between Irregular Choice and Office. They are so fun, look super comfortable with that cute small heel, and c’mon the have a big smiling cat on for goodness sake. I’m just not sure where I would wear them, yet I am strangely captivated by them. I think the price is also a little off putting, but I’m sure I will be ALL over them if they get reduced.

Let me know what you think of this weeks items, and keep accessorizing!
