Whoopsy daisy! I’m once again slightly late with my round up of the dresses worthy of the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs Up seal of approval. Or, as I like to think, I’m just fashionably late….
First up we have two tasty frocks from the consistently amazing Modcloth! The ice-cream print dress will surely sprinkle some joy over your wardrobe with it’s delicious mint colouring and row upon row of tempting lemon and vanilla cones. It’s made from a lovely thick cotton and the a-line shape means that it’s super flattering. A FAB summer dress! Meanwhile, the biscuit print dress is bourbon on the ridiculous! The whole biscuit family is represented in this stunner of a dress, right down to the jammy dodger. Nice!
Tis the season for pretty, floaty, floral numbers and this dress from New Look will certainly have you hay-feverish as it ticks all of those boxes, plus the all important under £20 box! Yippee! Purple and yellow is one of my favourite colour combinations which possibly explains why I was so drawn to this dress. Sadly for me, I already own an embarrassing amount of little floral dresses but none of them have an adorable crochet lace panel at the waist so maybe, just maybe, this might have to be mine.
This beautiful vintage inspired number from Monsoon is just perfect for summer occasions. I think the floral print is just gorgeous and has a wonderful mix of corals, mustards, blues and greens. The scooped neckline, full skirt and pleated waistband all add to its charm.
It was certainty love at first sight with this adorable navy heart print dress from Mango. It’s made from chiffon so definitely good for a twirl or two, it has beautiful buttons leading up to the scooped neckline and, most important of all, it has hidden pockets! Merciful heavens!
Hey look it’s another little floral number! But this time, this one has sleeves! And if it’s one thing that improves a dress, it’s a good sleeve. Matalan have this wonderful skater dress in a variety of colours and styles but this one is my absolute favourite! I just love the woven jacquard (you’ll need to go zoom in on the website for that particular insight) which gives it a far more expensive feel than it’s £16 price-tag and the print is just so so pretty. One flor-al occasions, if you will.
Jack Wills have come up with this fabulous 60’s inspired dress which I have a serious style crush on! I always love a good collar and that one is just screaming out for some fun collar clips! I think it’s possibly a bit too short for work, which is a shame, but it’s definitely a great day dress that could easily be taken through into evening wear with a pair of chunky black platform shoes and some retro accessories.
Last but not least is this fab 50’s frock from Soho’s, who I stumbled upon whilst browsing Pinterest and then spent the next hour lusting over all of their dresses! After a lengthy internal debate, I eventually settled on this aqua blue dress due to it’s cheerful pattern of sunflowers and daisies. I love the large Peter Pan collar and the full skirt, which would look amazing with a big 50’s style petticoat underneath. Accessories fans will also be pleased to learn that the white belt is included in the price. Wizard!
See you next week!
