After years of waiting, praying, begging, my wish came true. Today, Zara opened an online store in the US.
Zara offers customers the hottest trends at affordable prices. From ankle length pants to collar-less blazers, you can find modern pieces to add style to your wardrobe without taking a big bite out of your wallet.
The site offers all the pieces you would see in stores (more actually if you’re talking about the not so well stocked Penn Quarter location). They also offer free standard shipping and free returns and exchanges online or in-store.
Zara sent me a gift card so that I could peruse their site a day before it opened to the general public (it’s live now), and these are the pieces that I purchased:
I loved this blouse the minute that I saw it. I can’t wait to wear it under my black cashmere v-neck, tucked into my black pencil skirt or with my skinny jeans and boots. It’s a simple basic that I can wear until I wear it out and then toss it into the Goodwill pile when I get bored with it.
I actually chose this dress over a drop-waisted teal number because it was a more appropriate length for me. I can wear it with tights and boots on casual Friday. I can wear it with peep toe flats to a casual dinner. Or I can wear it over leggings on the airplane with a cream scarf and chunky bangles.
Sure, it’s basic black and white, but the mod styling makes it a bit more interesting.
I really wanted a pair of palazzo pants for Fall, but I was not about to spend the prices that the retailers were charging for them. I decided on these ivory ones because I didn’t need black, and the other colors offered weren’t versatile enough.
I’m going to wear them with a long, chunky sweater in heather camel. I also have a grey silk blouse that they will look great with. And if you have a sequin sweater from last season or a short or long sleeved sequin top, this would be a good holiday party look.
Lastly, I loved that I could pay for my purchase with PayPal. No searching for my wallet, no fumbling for my credit card. It was really convenient and it allowed me to pay cash. I wish more retailers would offer that feature.
Now that Zara has an online store, you can expect to see their pieces on CHS more often. I hope you ladies (And gentlemen) find some trendy, stylish pieces at Hill Staffer friendly prices.
