Well, this is certainly a very happy Monday for us here at She and Hem towers! On Friday we found out that we have been shortlisted for a Company Style Blogger Award for Best Blogging Duo and we could not be more excited, thrilled and, quite honestly, amazed! A year ago this month we started writing She and Hem and since then it has bought us so many magical moments. Being shortlisted is certainly the icing on our 1st blogiversary cake, which we may have already eaten…
Although we are currently unaware of when the voting closes, the awards take place on the 18th June, so we thought we would ask for one more favour in the form of a vote. If you would like to vote for us, just follow the link on the picture below and head to page 4. You will see us snuggled amongst the other shortlisted bloggers for Best Blogging Duo or Team (who we are really looking forward to meeting!). Please do let us know if you’ve voted so we can personally thank you/buy you a cake/give you Ryan Gosling’s phone number….
Thank you so much. We are two very happy bloggers!
Hello and welcome to our roundup of the dresses deemed worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. As promised, this week we have an all singing, all dancing double Double Thumbs with this second installment being a prom dress special! Wahoo! We shall go to the ball!
We begin with this beautiful pastel and metallic (two trends in one you say? tick tick!) Fever dress which is available from Rivers and Roads. This particular beauty has actually just arrived through my letter box so will no doubt be appearing in a post soon! I couldn’t wait to share it with you though as it’s just so pretty! The pastel hues combined with the sparkly fabric gives a lovely shimmery effect and one which is perfect for spring/summer parties.
You could inject a bit of floral fancy into your prom with this big bold and beautiful dress from the ever wonderful Louche, from Joy. This capped sleeve dress is gorgeous and is a decent length too. It would also look bloomin’ marvelous with a petticoat!
I’m not sure if I can adequately describe how much I love this ASOS* dress and I’m clearly not alone as it keeps whizzing in and out of stock (at the time of writing it’s currently unavailable but persevere if you’ve got you heart set on it). I want to twirl in it and I want to twirl in it now.
I’m not usually one to fall for a strapless dress but there’s just something so classic and pretty about this River Island* number. I love the large stripes and how the pink and white complement one another. It’s all just a bit dreamy.
Oh my, this is pretty much pink perfection. Will you just look at that bow!? I don’t even care that I don’t have a ball to go to, this F&F* dress shall me mine! They currently appear to have knocked 30% off the £30 pricetag which makes it a total bargain! It would also make a pretty great bridesmaid dress, dontchathink?
We love a bit of Lady V London around here, so there was much cooing when they announced their new collection. I found it near impossible to choose a favourite but have plumped for this vintage peach and navy tea dress. LOVE.
This Hell Bunny dress from Aspire Style is super duper fun! The colour is fabulous, the spots are genius and the shape and style scream TO THE DANCE FLOOR.
I love this silhouette of this cotton Phase Eight dress. The colour and pattern are simply divine and who doesn’t love a tie belt?
And finally, if you’re looking for length then this stunning lace overlay dress from Little Mistress could well be the one. There’s so much beautiful detailing and the cowl back is quite frankly breathtaking. Plus it’s £45. As the kids say, Little Mistress you cray cray.
That’s all for this week! However, before I go I would like to say a massive MASSIVE thank you for nominating us for the Company Style Blogger Awards 2014. We have now officially been shortlisted in the Best Blogging Duo or Team category and it’s honestly a dream come true for us both. We are against some truly inspirational bloggers but if you would like to vote for us to win, please click the image below!
