I have a story about this kimono that I may have mentioned on my blog before but, whatever!
When Adrian and I were in Barcelona, like all good tourists we hit the shops. I saw this kimono in Zara and thought, 'oh that's so pretty' and just walked on by. At this stage I was only looking for a dress. I thought about this kimono for days, weeks and when I couldn't find it in the UK, I looked for it in Poland, Italy and Hungary. It was only until my second last day back in Barcelona that I begged Adrian we go looking for it again. I freaking found it. My radar for this thing was bloody stupid, I found it in 5 seconds flat - I'm not even kidding.
I wore it everyday when I bought it. I think I even put it on when I bought it. 
I guess the lesson I learnt from this was when I know really like something I should buy them, because you might be looking for something similar and never find it again. I'm actually doing that with a couple of items online. Come to think of it, I don't know why. It'll end the same way it always does - with regret.
