Double Thumbs Dresses #15

Morning Hemsters,

Apologies for the slight delay in your weekly dress fix but hopefully there’s no better way to kick off your Monday than with a round up of the beautiful dresses considered to be worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. Go grab your coffee, I’m going in.

Wild Ponies Dress £60 from Cath Kidston

Giddy up girl, Cath Kidston has brought out yet another print for us all to covet. This dress is not only completely beautiful with the stunning print but it also has a work friendly hem line, sleeves and pockets! As always with Cath, this dress disappeared off the website just as soon as it arrived but. before you despair, I’ve seen plenty in store. Wild horses couldn’t keep me away etc etc.

Vintage Rose Dress £49.95 from White Stuff

White Stuff are always a safe bet for a pretty dress but I don’t tend to associate them with more vintage inspired prints. This rose print number is just gorgeous and looks super flattering and comfortable. This fab frock  is also proving to be a pesky one to track down to purchase online but is also available at House of Fraser and John Lewis

Rockabilly Robin Dress £55 from There’s Only One Amy Laws

A cheep and cheerful little number here from the ever wonderful There’s Only One Amy Laws. The 50s shape and vibrant red colour are totally fab and once you throw in those delightful robins, you’ve got one heck of a dress on your hands.

Glitter Tunic £45.00 from Warehouse

Bonfire night is fast approaching so it’s obviously wise to invest in a nice little sparkler right about now. This glittery Warehouse number ticks all the seasonal boxes for me and could well be my new party dress! Continue reading Double Thumbs Dresses #15

Double Thumbs Dresses #5

Hello beautiful! It’s time for our weekly round up of all those lovely dresses that receive the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs Up seal of approval. Apologies in advance if you are one of those strange sorts who is adverse to the colour yellow, I appear to have been drawn to the sunshine shades this week!

Ice Cream Dress £45 from There’s Only One Amy Laws

You’ll whip up a storm in this wonderful dusty pink dress! I just love those ice creams around the hem and that super adorable Peter Pan collar has truly melted my heart. With dresses as cute as this one, I’m not sure only having one Amy Laws is enough! Isn’t it gorgeous? her website is well worth a look.

Good Egg Dress in Powder Blue £58.80 from Miss Patina

It might feel hot enough outside to cook an egg on your forehead but why bother with that messy shenanigans when you can look just as cracking in this fried egg print dress from Miss Patina. This powder blue 1950’s style dress is eggstraodinarily fun and very pretty to boot. I’m slightly scared of the open back tie detail but it doesn’t look as if it would show any underwear straps, and it involves a massive bow, so I can totally get on board!

Boucle Dress with Lace Neckline £18 from George at Asda

Oh look, it’s the first of the yellow numbers. This 60’s inspired number from Asda(!!) is completely gorgeous and an absolute bargain for £18. I love the lace detail on the neckline and the fit and shape of the dress.

Floral Print Belted Skater Dress £25 from River Island

I do love a summer dress with sleeves! This beautiful floral dress from River Island is perfect for the warmer weather. I would throw it on with sandals and a big hat and feel likes the bees knees.

The Starry Eyed Kitty Lace Dress $48.99(£32) from Bonne Chance Collection

Now THIS is fun. Who doesn’t want to wear cats floating around in the night sky? This barmy but brilliant dress from Bonne Chance Collections will certainly get some attention! It’s a cute 50’s style with lovely lace inserts on each side and a great full skirt. 

Ladybird Sundress £125 (reduced from £175) from Boutique by Jaeger
Floral Cluster Dress £85 (reduced from £140) from Boutique by Jaeger

I’m more likely to be found doing shots of Jager than I am to be buying anything from the store but hey, a girl can dream can’t she? Jaeger always have at least 44 dresses I would happily marry but this week I am settling on just two from their current sale. The first is a fabulous navy fit and flair dress with an all over ladybird print. Swoon. The second is a super fun yellow belted dress with lots of lovely flowers printed all over it. Both dresses would look fabulous with bright red shoes and bright colourful accessories.

Lovebird Dress in Mustard £48 from Instant Vintage

Victoria and I were lucky enough to be invited to join in Instant Vintages’ 5th birthday party celebrations this week (blog post to come) at which we spotted this lovely lovebird print dress which comes in several different colours. I do love a good shirt dress as they are so versatile and the contrast of the teal birds against the mustard is just fab.

See you next week!
