Well, times have changed, my friends. And Zara now rocks my world, and will rock yours too. (If you are already aware of this, then feel free to skip this post. But know that you are dead to me from here on out. Just sayin')
Here are some examples of the awesomeness that Zara is now peddling, and believe me when I say that this is but a mere sampling and there is much, much more awesomeness where it came from. But as I am a tad on the lazy side (newsflash!) I decided to choose one item from a few different categories, and in this manner provide you with a carefully curated selection. See? I was thinking of you, dear reader(s?).
Let's start with this darling top:
Next up - a fresh take on the striped shirt that has everyone is such a frenzy:
What's that? You want something for your bottom half?:
If you like to get a little more ooh-la-la for a cocktail party, never fear. I've got you covered:
Speaking of cooler weather:
And for the feet?:
These velvet loafers are everywhere, I know, but these are lovely, have a slight heel, and I'd wear them with almost everything: skinny jeans, black tights and a mini skirt, cropped cigarette pants, leggings and a long sweater, denim cut-off shorts... So versatile. So perfect.
And the grand finale? This bag:
This post has made me slightly sad on the inside as I will likely never own these beautiful goods, so I am now going to read up on minimalism, and how one only really needs, like, four shirts and two pairs of pants.
But if you too have been staying away from Zara because you had a bad experience back in 1998 with a pair of pants that did you no favors in the ass area, and then fell apart two weeks after you got them home, it's time to get yourself back there. I swear that this is but the tip of the iceberg. I could have posted almost the entire collection (though you are probably eternally grateful that I limited myself), it's all that good. So go forth and spend! And then send me pictures of you out on the town in your new finery, so I can live vicariously through people with discretionary income!
