Zara Is Winning My Heart

I've been smitten with Zara for a while.  Sadly, each time I go to New York, I run out of time to really shop there in person.  And, because I live in Fashion Exile (aka North Carolina), we  don't have a Zara here.

When I 've seen adorable items like this pink boyfriend blazer, I have had to track it down on Ebay (and hell, yes, I tracked this baby down).

But now we who are in the boonies (apparently), need suffer no more.  Zara is online!!!


And yes, I had to jump on and grab some items.  I dithered too long and two dresses I liked ran out but that just helped me narrow my cart down a bit.

First I bought a "basic" that I had on the Needed list for Fall/Winter... a cable knit sweater dress in black.  Simple but perfect for jazzing up a number of ways.

Then this whimsical tee caught my eye.  I'm so wearing this under a brown corduroy blazer and jeans. 

And my last item of the day was this snazzy red polka-dot blazer.  It's going to transition through Fall, be perfect with my "Chromatic French" theme and will probably still be kicking around in summer too (maybe I'll need an Americana theme for 2012)

Since items run out fast (especially on day one), I think this is going to be a daily stop for me.

Did you nab any Zara Day One delights?

I love that black dress. You can never go wrong with a black sweater dress.

I'm fortunate to live close to a Zara and I love the clothes there but I have a hard time finding pieces that fit. I guess I have yet to figure out their crazy European sizing.

Hey, I'm just a lurker who likes the same stuff you do and is the same size.

I hate HATE Zara because of how inconsistent their sizing is for women with some curves. I have been reduced to tears too many times in those dressing rooms until I finally gave up.

I'm just an normal size American woman, like you, and every time the place makes me feel like I am shopping in the kids' department.

Their mens, however, is very cool and edgy and affordable.
