They say all good things come in pairs – boobs, twin-sized Mars bars, Hilary and Hailey Duff. Now, while these of these wonderful pairings ring true and blue, this deeply philosophical theory can also be applied to garms. Winter garms, summer garms, the whole nine yards – you name it! The not-so-wise, deeply vein and historically unstylish woman captured in the snooty images below says so, so it must be 100% tried and tested.
The far wiser and historically stylish duo behind Zimmermann certainly got the memo and are helping their adoring sisters out everywhere. This floral-lovers wet dream has me praising the lords up above with my now stylish mind, body and spirit.
Thank you, Zimmermann, thank you.

I’m lazy, I know. I’ve been putting off writing about this Zimmermann beauty for yonks. You see, every time I go to put pen to paper or fingers to keyboard, the unsettling feeling of expectation washes over me. The very real fear of not doing this frock the justice it deserves reaches new levels, but today is a new day and I’m biting the bullet. Brave I know, so here goes.
This exquisitely constructed feat of design and beauty is tes— somebody stick a bloody sock in me. Being a pretentious tosser, although typically effective for me, isn’t good enough today. The idea of letting the images speak for themselves appeals too, but again, the pretentious tosser actually featured in photos rules that one out. Gross. So after exhausting all possible writing avenues I’ve settled on stating the obvious for you all and yes, you are so very welcome. This dress is pretty, very pretty. The kind of pretty that punches you in the throat every time you see it. It radiates quality and is a pretty badass option for summer or winter, day or night. Just go out and buy the damn thing; the best advice I’ve produced for you all today.

A sort of chemical reaction happens to my body anytime I discover an amazing piece of clothing, slight back-of-neck sweats, twitching fingers, increased heart rate. I generally use these symptoms as a sign that a garment needs to make its way into my wardrobe. A few weeks ago with a desperation in my soul, I quickly snapped up this gorgeous Zimmerman top before the world realised it was on sale. Yes people, half price.
Made from silk and fairy wings, this beautifully constructed piece displays the true extent of what the Zimmerman girls can really do. With fine boning providing support and structure, the bohemian array of patterns gives the top a twist of uniqueness and flair. I do have to warn you, any arm movement in this lil’ sucker is limited but I get the impression all you need to do in this top is air kiss, hold your clutch and wipe away the tears of your enemies. There really is nothing not to love. I’m not going to lie, if my house was on fire I would grab my pets, this top and maybe my family, maybe. On another note please excuse my heinous burn/tan/peeling lines, the sun is punishing me.
