Guilty Pleasures From Home

As much as I love living in my new home {current city: London} there are certain aspects of my life that I miss. Apart from the obvious, family and friends, there was one guilty pleasure that I miss dearly - my regular visits to Zimmermann's Brisbane CBD store. Reason 1) to see what was on offer and 2) catchups with Vella, the cute bubbly sales assistant where I could play dress up and test out the new stock. These sessions occasionally ended with me splurging on myself. {Trust me, if you've ever tried on a piece you'd want to take it home too!}

Nothing beats going in store and physically touching the beauty that has been produced. Seeing first hand a designer's vision become reality; delicate fabrics, vibrant prints, perfectly draping over the natural curves of a woman's body. Can you see why I miss it. For now I'm just going to have to click through the various pages of their website and social media sites. Maybe sneak in a little alone time with the pieces I was able to bring with me to London. Sigh.

Here is my favourite print, done three ways, from their upcoming RTW Spring/Summer collection. I am such a sucker for floral. Subtle, feminine, timeless.
