It’s no big secret how much we love Emily and Fin. We get excited about every new collection and love seeing what new fun prints they’ve come out with. Their Autumn/Winter collection sees a bevvy of berry shades and navy niceties with their signature prints and shapes to match. Marvellous!
Once it had safely landed on the website, we were both instantly taken with the Come Fly With Me print which features a fleet of aeroplanes ready to take our wardrobe to new heights! Victoria was actually even able to name the planes (a Douglas DC-6, Douglas DC-3 and a Ford Trimotor apparently) a fact I’m not sure I’ve come to terms with just yet – impressive! We decided to fasten our seat-belts and jetted off to our local park where, sadly, there wasn’t a complimentary bag of peanuts in sight. Despite this, we made ourselves a runway and declared these outfits ready for take off! And yes, we are pretending to be planes in that photo. What of it?
My Claudia dress* is classic Emily and Fin. I always love this shape as it’s nicely fitted and the capped raglan sleeves make me so happy. The full skirt is anything but plane (sorry) and has small box pleats which make it super flattering and perfect for twirling about in! Also, it has pockets (for any complimentary peanuts that may come your way) which we all know is the key to my heart. Victoria, in her jazzy trousers and shirt combo, has truly stepped out of our Emily and Fin comfort zone! Fortunately, I’m pleased to report she hasn’t hit any fashion turbulence and looks fabulous! Her slim-fitting cropped Jamie Trousers* make for a pleasant departure (who doesn’t love a novelty print trouser?) from our usual frocks and they look (in my opinion) really rather high fashion when teamed with the Dreamy Deco Floral print in the Lara Shirt*. It’s such a fab retro print and is available in dress form too.
Thanks for the landing gear, Emily and Fin! Can’t wait to see what you come up with next!
Hello dress fans! It’s time once again for a gander at the frocks deemed worthy of the highly commended Double Thumbs seal of approval. And the sun is shining, which makes buying new dresses all the more essential. Obviously.
Oh my! I only discovered last week my love of deckchairs on dresses so imagine my delight when this chair festooned wonder frock appear online. It’s also got pockets and a nice bow. All this leads me to believe that Cath Kidston are still purposely trying to bankrupt me.
The new Nishe collection is really rather special! With pretty shapes, novelty prints and adorable frocks a plenty. Thankfully, quite a few of the collection have appeared on ASOS and I would quite happily own it all. The two above are my current favourites although, be warned, there is a sweet print yet to come.
Hello one and all and welcome back to your weekly (ahem) roundup of the dresses we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval. You might have noticed that we skipped a week last week so, by way of an apology, I have made this one slightly longer. I know, I really do spoil you.
Right, so, this is a little unprecedented but first up we have FOUR dresses from the rather brilliant, People Tree. The first three form part of their ongoing collaboration with Orla Kiely, who I know we have been relentlessly banging on about recently but I can’t help it if she keeps bringing the pretty to the party. This new collaboration features three dancing girl silhouette prints and they are all so SO great. I really couldn’t choose just one so I’ve had to go with three but I could easily have chosen more. Yikes. And just when I thought I was safe I spied the balloon print dress and practically combusted at my computer. What the heck, People Tree? Are you deliberately trying to bankrupt me?
Oh good, more reasons to spend all my money! The new Poppy collection landed this week and as usual it’s perfect. This time they have embraced bright bold colours as their characters, Poppy and Fred, take Mr Giraffe to the seaside. I don’t know what party balloons have got to do with giraffes at the seaside but if the result is always this pretty, I’m on board. No, I’m not drunk. Continue reading Double Thumbs Dresses #29→
Wahooo! It’s Friday again which means it’s time for a new Double Thumbs Dresses! But before we press ahead with this weeks’ selection of frocks deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs seal of approval, a big THANK YOU is in order as you lovely lot have voted us into the shortlist for the UK Blog Awards. Honestly, this is the most unexpected treat for us and we are truly grateful and just the tiniest bit confused. So, seeing as we are in such a loving feelgood mood, this week’s DT will provide you with the perfect dresses for Valentine’s Day. Break out the violins and pass me the Milk Tray!
I’ve seen a lot of bloggers raving about this new heart print smock from Vintage Style Me and it’s not difficult to see why! It’s a fabulously pretty print with a great shape. I love Lily’s playful styling too!
Speaking of lovely heart prints, this Emily and Fin Abigail dress is pastel perfection. The hearts almost look like confetti! So cute. I love their Abigail style, with full skirt and high neckline.
Valentine’s Day is probably the last day for a while you can get away with wearing a sparkly red velvet dress, so you may as well do it properly in this Miss Patina number. The back of the dress is gorgeous too, with two very lovely red bows.
