Double Thumbs Dresses #28

Merry Friday, happy Valentine’s Day and a glorious London Fashion Week to one and all! And if that wasn’t excitement enough it’s also DT time! Woohoo! So without further ado, here is this week’s roundup of dresses deemed worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. Snazzy.

Ice Cream Dress by Emily & Fin
Ice Cream Dress by Emily & Fin

Break out your sundae best, this heart meltingly beautiful dress is part of Emily & Fin’s Spring/Summer collection. It’s actually a bit of a naughty Double Thumbs entry as it won’t be out until the first week of April. BUT I JUST CAN’T WAIT THAT LONG. At least we’ll all have plenty of time to save up, eh? The print comes in a choice of two styles which I’m assured will both be available from Aspire Style. Don’t worry, I’ll remind you when the time comes. In the meantime, just feast your eyes.

Duckie Dress £55 from Sugarhill Boutique

Another week, another brilliant dress from Sugarill Boutique. I just love all of their prints and these cute little ducks are no exception. It’s also nice to see a tulip shape as I can’t say I own much in this style. I wasn’t sure about the black lace side panels at first but I’ve decided now that I love them. Also: great sleeve.

Outfit of the Day: A Vintage Pink Coat

I believe there is something positively magical about taking a piece of clothing that already has it’s own history, and maybe a few more miles on the clock than yourself, and restyling it to give it a whole new lease of life!

While I have a tenderness for trends and am particularly prone to pastels, when it comes to fashion it is nice and novel to have an item that nobody else has. So when I found this vintage pink coat recently I was truly tickled pink and had to shout it from the mountain tops! Unfortunately we don’t have many mountains in Bristol, so I made do with the nearest hill…
