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.

Multi Print Band Skater Dress £65 by Almari from John Lewis

I’m becoming a big fan of Almari (available from John Lewis). They have some really interesting prints and shapes going on. I love the wintery floral pattern on this one and, as I own an Almari dress in this shape, I can vouch for how awesome the full skirt is.

Double Thumbs Dresses #21

Happy Wednesday, one and all. I’m back once again with a round-up of dresses considered worthy enough to receive the highly coveted She and Hem Double Thumbs seal of approval. It’s a slightly shorter installment this week but, hey, it’s quality not quantity!

Buy Almari Contrast Dress, Black/White Online at
Contrast Dress £65 by Almari from John Lewis

This dress from Almari (available at John Lewis), with its lovely cinched waistline and full skirt, looks pretty great at first glance. Plus, we all like a hounds-tooth right? But wait, what’s that? It’s actually hundreds and hundred of cats? Fetch my purse.

Knitted Woven Skirt Dress £70.00 from Topshop

Heck yes! I love a lazy outfit and this Topshop one ticks all manner of boxes for me. Especially the big one that says ‘can be dressed for work in under 60 seconds’. I love that box. Seriously though, this is a beautiful dress for A/W.

 Roll Sleeve Textured Dress
Roll Sleeve Textured Dress £20.00 from Matalan

I’m really smitten with this simple dress from Matalan. I can’t really figure out why it is that I love it so much but I think it might have something to do with how comfy it looks. I love the little roll sleeve detail and the pockets, oh the pockets! It comes in a variety of colours but I’ve plumped for brown. Continue reading Double Thumbs Dresses #21
