Double Thumbs Dresses #45

Hello hello and welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses! Our weekly(ish) roundup of the frocks deemed to be worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. Let’s crack on. 

Aurora Dress in Blue Castle Print $144 (or £120)
Aurora Dress in Blue Castle Print $144 (or £120) by Pinup Girl Clothing available from Deadly is the Female

It’s not often that I am rendered speechless by a dress but that’s what momentarily happened when I spied this fit-for-a-princess frock by Pinup Girl Clothing. The enchanted castle print is simply stunning and combined with that perfect shape and colour it’s just begging to be worn on a jolly jaunt around Disneyland. Thankfully for us Brits, this American brand is also available from Frome based (West Country REPRESENT!) shop, Deadly is the Female. Magical.

Love Me Not Dress £79
Love Me Not Dress £79 from Coco Fennell

Continuing my dress related joy this week was my discovery of Shoreditch based creator of fun, Coco Fennell! I got a little overexcited on their website and basically ended up wanting everything they have ever made (if anyone knows where I can get a helter skelter print shirt I am yours). I eventually decided that this super cute baby blue dress was my current favourite! Just look at the collar!

Scattered Stars Dress £65
Scattered Stars Dress £65 from Cath Kidston

Oh my starry eyed surprise, this Cath Kidston number is a bit special! CK are really killing it with the great prints and cuts this A/W and quite frankly neither my bank balance or my wardrobe can take much more.

Love Dress £49
Love Dress £49 from Sugarhill Boutique available at House of Fraser

This hearty Sugarhill Boutique number really is the perfect Autumn wear dress with it’s playful print and lovely long sleeves. I am already envisioning black tights, brogues and some leaves to kick. Maybe even a nice hat to really to set it off.

Midi Skater Dress in Tapestry Floral Print £28 from ASOS
Midi Skater Dress in Tapestry Floral Print £28 from ASOS

I always appreciate a good floral and with that gorgeous mustard colour, fab length and the fact it looks so easy to just throw on, this ASOS tapestry dress is ticking all the right boxes for me! I am already eyeing it up as a potential work frock.

Victoriana Lace Dress £46 from Topshop
Victoriana Lace Dress £46 from Topshop

I am rather smitten with this Victoriana dress that appeared on the Topshop website this week. It’s such a beautiful vintage inspired piece and the lace detailing is just wonderful. Good work, Toppers.

Embellished Blossom Dress £15
Embellished Blossom Dress £150 from Needle & Thread at ASOS

This Needle & Thread dress is simply exquisite. The detailing is so intricate and beautiful and SO SPARKLY. The oxblood colour is gorgeous too and would be perfect party wear for this time of year (and dare I say it, Christmas). I keep watching the ASOS catwalk in the hope that one day the model is going to mysteriously hand me £150 through the computer. Seems unlikely though.

REDOSIE  Graphic Print Tunic £139 from Ted Baker
REDOSIE Graphic Print Tunic £139 from Ted Baker

I feel like this Ted Baker number might not be everyone’s cup of tea but personally I adore this graphic print tunic. There’s something about that headless woman and her red outfit that really appeals to me. Plus, it has glitzy embellished shoulders! You go girl.
