Shoulder Detail


Dress, shoes, suede handbag: ZARA

Would you believe me if I told you that my entire look was purchased from Zara? It’s TRUE!!! I will be the first to admit that I slept on Zara for years. Everyone knows that my steady BAE is Nordstrom😍😍😍
Of course I venture off here and there, but I always go back to BAE because Nordie’s gets who I am as a woman! After all - we’ve been building a solid relationship for decades! LOL!
Nevertheless, it never hurts to check out what’s new (or newer) on the market 😜
I shied away from Zara b/c they are NOT size inclusive (the largest size I've seen in-person is an XL) and I figured that most of the clothing options wouldn’t fit me properly anyway – so why even bother?! 
What changed? 
First off, I was on a plus size blogger outing and both bloggers lamented on how they found pieces at Zara that fit them well. 
Secondly, there are Zara brick & mortars in two locations that I currently frequent weekly. I begin finding myself stopping in, perusing around, and more oftentimes than not - exiting with a shopping bag or two. Let me tell you: I’ve made up for lost time in the past couple of years... in an ample way... I’ve scored shoes, tops, dresses, separates, and an array of accessories that have made perfect additions to my wardrobe base. 
Psst: Have you ever checked out their sale at the end of the year?! Oh my goodness, I almost lost my mind on the last one…
The moral of the story once again is: Never say never. Especially when it comes to fashion!
Until next time,
XO

  1. Well you look amazing as always!!!! A Zara store just opened at Mall of America and I haven't really gone in there looking for the same reasons you listed here. Maybe I'll give it a try this weekend.

  8. Beautiful dress! I love the shoes and green bag. I'm a big Zara fan. I agree that the sizing is often inconsistent - I have sizes small, medium and large garments from Zara. That doesn't put me off shopping there though!
