I distinctly remember the moment I absolutely fell in love with this gorgeous Zimmermann flutter dress! I was mindlessly scrolling through Instagram when suddenly this floral printed beauty of a dress popped up in my feed. It was love at first sight, let me tell you that! I’ve always been a huge fan of Zimmermann’s feminine, delicate aesthetic and it’s one of the few designer brands where I’m almost always loving EVERY single piece of EVERY collection. Needless to say I’ve been obsessed with this dress since it first crossed my path. But oh well, Zimmermann ain’t cheap, people! And as much as I adore this bell sleeve mini dress, $850 is not a price I can justify to spend on a summer dress. And so the Zimmermann dress dupe hunt began…

AQUA Floral Eyelet & Lace Dress
I might’ve had to wait 1 1/2 years, but alas my prayers seemed to have finally been heard by the people at AQUA! And I must admit they’ve done a very decent dupe job here, wouldn’t you agree? The design is spot-on; from the cut and the length, to the earthy color, the floral print and the key elements like the eyelet piping, bell sleeves and deep v-neck, it’s all there! And you can get all this lovely Zimmermann look for less goodness for a fraction of the real deal’s price: $118 instead of $850! You can’t imagine my delight when I discovered this dress! Add to cart, please!
