Hello hello! Welcome back to Double Thumbs Dresses, our roundup of the frocks we have deemed worthy of the highly coveted double thumbs seal of approval! Let’s crack on….
We are cray cray about Cath Kidston‘s crayon print! Isn’t it fabulous? Surely one of their best ever and that’s saying something! I adore those multicolored pencils and the shirt dress makes for a refreshing CK change. There’s also an equally fab skirt in this print online but I am waiting for the pencil shoes that we spied at the press day to appear! My feet will not be stationary when they do.
You all know that I am gaga for a hot air balloon print so I was pretty over the moon when I discovered this beauty on La Redoute. It’s just gorgeous and I love the colourful balloons against the navy – it’s like they’ve all gone for a midnight fiesta. Also, this dress has pockets.
Yes! Yes! Everything Yes! This is the pinkest, floatiest thing I have ever seen! This ASOS frock wins the award for jazziest sleeves with those insane fluttery numbers.
And now for a slightly more demure shade of pink thanks to this Warehouse prom dress. It’s so pretty! The lace overlay is the stuff of my dreams and I love the skater skirt shape. Pastel perfection!
There is something about this Lost Ink (from ASOS) dress that is just calling my name. I love it! There’s just so much detail to admire, from the wonderful contrasting black ribbon trim and bows to the ruffle detail around the neckline. The sleeves are also just heavenly. Defo go watch the video if you don’t believe me!
And another cutie number from ASOS who are really smashing it out the park as per. This is another dress with adorable sleeves that also have the most delightful ruffle detail. There are so many pleats, overlays and trims to admire that I’m not really sure where to start.
Last but not least we have this Summer stunner courtesy of Ted Baker (from John Lewis). It’s so whimsical and romantic thanks to that beautiful lightweight material. I am clearly all about my frills at the moment with that lovely high neckline. Plus the floral print is a bit of alright too.
