Wanna know a secret? I've never ever purchased anything from Zara before!!! I know I know your probably looking at me like, "Your a fashion blogger and you haven't pinned a page from the Fashion Blogger Bible?" (Topshop, Zara, Asos, RiverIsland, etc...). Yes it is true, I've never purchased anything from Zara. It was never because I didn't want to, but because I didn't know how their sizing worked compared to other companies. I would always go online to their website and gather inspiration from the site, but could never bring myself to actually click, "Add to Cart" and checkout. So with all that being said I knew that one of the places I wanted to visit in NY was Zara. I wanted to actually go in and feel the clothing, see it in person and get a good sense of the brand.
Our first day we went to the World Trade Center Memorial, and right around that same neighborhood is a 2 story Zara. I went in and instantly fell in LOVE with everything. I wanted to buy the entire store! As I was looking around I knew I wanted to come home with a piece that A) was conducive to my Color Bar Series, and B) could fit in my suitcase. I knew I couldn't buy anymore than 2 pieces at max because I had some other shopping to do. I found this plaid midi length hounds-tooth button down dress and knew that it was MINE! Tried it on in the fitting room and it came home with me. :)
This dress does have rouching in the front but that can simply be covered up with a belt. It is such a classic and timeless dress that can be worn with over the knee boots, ankle boots, classic black pumps, strappy heels, loafers, and even sneakers! This dress is so versatile and perfect for this season. I now know how Zara pieces fit and cannot wait to start shopping there more often and showcasing more items. I hope this post gives you some inspiration this season!
