I don’t know about you and your clothing preferences but I used to have a huge obsession with Zara. True to that back in Budapest we didn’t have so many options fashionwise like here in London. But it wasn’t just like that. I wasn’t the only one. Recently Zara has huge popularity, has been growing day by day on the whole world and the founder is one of the richest men on the world. And that’s insane, isn’t it?
And somewhere they deserve it. It’s a clever business indeed with the most brilliant
trick business model you’ve ever experienced. Fast fashion that’s it. They’re making nice clothes with affordable prices and (sometimes) questionable quality. If you see something there, there’s a big chance you want it. IMMEDIATELY. And that’s the secret. Because you know if you miss the chance probably you’re gonna miss it forever. The scariest thing that you’re clearly aware of this but you cannot help it because it looks so cool/soft/shiny/new and it’s close to a bargain. Don’t get me wrong you can find pretty good deals there, but it’s better to be conscious what you spend your hard earned money on.
I didn’t plan to write these things above, it just came when I discovered all of my choice of clothes have the same label. So because it has happened this way I thought I share my thoughts what popped into my mind. So here we are, with a little lesson and an outfit with the same labels on.
I love this peacoat. It’s navy blue with ivory coloured buttons which add nice contrast. It has nice, sharper cut and 80% wool blended material which is always a good choice if you want to buy a coat for winter.
My boots are more than one year old and I still love them. Because I usually wear ankle boots these ones mean diversity. I especially like to wear them with shorter coat and I love that they are from suede and have flat heels. I have one difficulty with them though. One of them keep slipping off so I always have to pull it back. 🙂
This skort is the only recent buy from Zara but it has its own story. I didn’t really need it because I had a similar one, but for a while I was thinking to buy a short leather skirt or short, I just couldn’t find the right one. Last year I got a voucher which I had to spent and this skort was on sale. I love its cut (that it’s between a skirt and short – genius, isn’t it?) and the zippers on it which with the faux leather can add a little rock chic vibe.
All of my clothes (coat, scarf, skort + jumper which you cannot see her) and boots are from Zara.
