Company Style Blogger Awards 2014

Company Blogger Awards 2014Good morning and a very merry Monday to you!

We begin the week with a plea for nominations for the Company Style Blogger Awards 2014! Now, we promise not to harp on endlessly about this but being shortlisted really would be the cherry on top of a fantastic first year of blogging. We do absolutely adore writing She and Hem and we hope that if you enjoy reading it (even if it sometimes makes you poorer) you will consider giving up a teeny bit of your time to nominate us for an award. There are a number of categories to choose from but, as we like to think we are the PJ and Duncan, Batman and Robin, Mel and Sue or perhaps even the Harold and Lou of the blogging world, we would suggest the duos category.

It only takes a couple of minutes to nominate and, if you are on Twitter, you can then enter yourself into a competition to win £250 to spend at Miss Guided, the awards sponsor. Simply tweet ‘I just nominated @sheandhem in the #companystylebloggerawards2014 now I want to win £250 to spend at missguided #MGBLOGGERS“.

You can of course swap @sheandhem for the twitter handle of a different blog. We won’t hold it against you, honest.

Thank you!

J&V

Company Blogger Awards 2014

Double Thumbs Dresses #33

Howdy partners! It’s DT time! Your weekly *sideways glance* roundup of the dresses we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval. Before we crack on, I am going to make a shameless plea! The nominations for the Company Blogger Awards 2014 have opened and we would be chuffed as nuts if you would consider voting for us. There’s even a blogger duo category! Shameless plea over, it’s frock o’clock.

Map Print Cotton Fit Flare Dress £85 from Laura Ashley
Map Print Cotton Fit Flare Dress £85 from Laura Ashley

I have been waiting forever (at least 3 weeks) for this beauty to hit the Laura Ashley website and it sure was worth the wait. It’s got the most gorgeous old world map print, complete with big ships, whales and deckchairs! Yes, more deckchairs! I hereby declare deckchairs to be a SS14 essential.

Vintage Floral Midi Bardot Dress £85 from ASOS
Vintage Floral Midi Bardot Dress £85 from ASOS

Oh me oh my, ASOS are killing it with the dresses at the moment. They rather inconsiderately keep selling out before I have the chance to buy them (and by that I mean they aren’t hanging around long enough to go into a sale), which is a real bummer. This gorgeous vintage style dress has a beautiful off the shoulder neckline and sublime fit and flare shape.

Organza Prom Dress £25 from Matalan
Organza Prom Dress £25 from Matalan

Matalan are also bringing the pretty this season with some lovely feminine florals. This gorgeous organza prom dress has a super flattering silhouette and the all important  mesh panel.

Wish You Were Here Dress £60 from Great Plains
Wish You Were Here Dress £60 from Great Plains

This postcard print dress from Great Plains is surely worth writing home about (unlike my jokes, eh). I do enjoy a shirt dress and this one happens to have a lovely rounded collar and a very pretty peach and blue pallet going on. It’s also got birds on it. So that’s nice.
