I just wanted to review a couple items I recently bought from Zara.com. The dress I actually got a month ago and the other three arrived today.
I am very rarely disappointed in Zara but this time takes the cake. This skirt looks lovely in the picture but in reality is nothing more than just a slip. It's not lined, there is no zipper (stretchy waist). It is silk but IMO $90 is way too much for something so flimsy. So needless to say, this one went back.
One thing I've decided I need to add to my wardrobe is tops for all the skirts, trousers and jeans I own. But it won't be this one. I would say size down on this one. It is pretty and is real silk but for $80 i decided I would rather have something else. It just wasn't very flattering on me. I like the back detail but just decided this one is also going back.
This dress I love but beware it does run small. I originally ordered a small because I always wear a small at Zara but the thing was so tight I couldn't wear a bra and it smushed my boobs down. So i bought a medium and sent the small back and the medium fits perfect. I love the fitted lace sleeves and the high low hem. The attached slip is nice and fitted so the lace just flows over the top nicely. I haven't worn it yet but Sunday I'm attending a friend's wedding shower and thought it might work for that.
Printed Trousers $80
These are the only thing I decided to keep today. I love these pants. I bought them in a small so I would say they run true to size. Being only 5'3 they are the perfect length, no need to hem them. Love the colors! I have the dress with this same print and I just love it. Oh, and how great are those heels? I can't wait til they stock those.
So what did you think about the review? Is it something I should do more of? Or was it just a waste of a post?
