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.
It’s Double Thumbs time! Our round up of the dresses we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted Double Thumbs Dresses seal of approval. If you’re a fan of a good collar then this, dear reader, is the post for you as not since Usher has one person popped so many in one place.
I have a feeling Cath Kidston and I are going to fall out. I mean, seriously, how is one person supposed to afford all of the pretty, all of the time? I can’t cope. They have been on an absolute novelty print roll over the past year with the trains, horses, mushrooms and cottages all taking up She and Hem wardrobe space. SS14 looks set to be even better with the safari and brighten up prints already looking dreamy. However, I’m going to kick off the CK loving with these two tea cup print frocks. The top one being my absolute dress crush of the week. I love the colour, the length, the print and the pockets. It’s an all round winner really. The second dress took me by surprise as I simply wasn’t expecting a dress like this to appear this season. It’s really rather lovely though, with another great print and a very pretty collar. I’m really looking forward to seeing both dresses in store. My bank balance, less so.
If you haven’t already checked out Ever Ours then you are in for a treat. This site always has wonderfully interesting pieces, especially when it comes to dresses. This retro print dress is slightly bonkers in the best possible way. It’s like looking at your Grandma’s carpet through a kaleidoscope. I don’t think I can give a higher compliment than that really.
If you’re tired of forgetting your umbrella then perhaps wearing 700 of them on your frock will help jog your memory. This lovely (and on sale!) dress from Great Plains is the perfect shirt dress shape. I adore those long sleeves and the flattering tie belt. You can thank @dinoprincesschr (who may well be my dress soul mate) for this one as I must admit to not being familiar with Great Plains before they popped up on her Twitter feed. Turns out the Great in their name is well deserved. Continue reading Double Thumbs Dresses #23→
