"What is Zara?" If I had a dollar for every person that asked me this question within the last few months, well, I'd maybe have like $30. But really, I have gotten this question a lot. They are currently doing their winter sale so I've decided to make an entire post about Zara and Zara only. I received an email last week asking how Zara clothing fit. They had never been to a store before and they thought that everything online looked "weird". And you know what? I thought the exact same thing a couple of years ago when I first discovered Zara. The first time I looked online, it wasn't eye-catching for me. It's very European styled (which I love) and while I found cute things, they weren't a must for me. Then…I went into an actual Zara store in San Francisco. That was it. I was hooked and knew I'd never look back. How would I describe Zara? Hmm…think Forever21 and H&M only more unique, more chic, more urban,better quality and their shoes never disappoint. If that makes sense.
Now onto how the clothes fit. In the majority of the clothing that I've tried and own from Zara I believe that the fit is fairly TTS. The only time I've ever sized up was if I was wanting a looser fit in the pants. The good thing is that if you order online, their shipping is ridiculously fast and easy to return, so if you're in between sizes then buy both sizes and go from there.
I've decided to post just a few of my favorites from this current sale that they are having. I hope this has helped some of you. If you're new to it, try going into it with an open mind. I promise it won't disappoint. It's one of my top 5 go-to sites. Oh, and if you have kids, go browse the kid section. Seriously. It's beyond amazing and super affordable. Even the mens clothes are great (most of them at least).
Seriously guys, go check out this sale. That sweater (in the middle) is only $7.99.
Happy Zara Sale Shopping!
Oh, and I've decided to attach a little video.(Try not to get motion sickness.) Zara in Italy is on every corner. No joke. In Florence, there were 2 Zara's right across the street from each other. And the Zara we stopped at in Rome was 4 stories. I was in "Zara heaven".
