I stopped by Zara right before my China trip to pick up a few things from their early Fall collection. Since then, Zara launched their online shopping in the US. I checked the site as I was drafting this post and do see the pieces mentioned available, some in limited sizes.
I was looking for a fall blazer and tried on two styles, both priced at $99.90. The two-button blue blazer with red accents fits a little bigger than the single button yellow blazer in the same size. I heart the mustard yellow shade, it's perfect for the season.
Pleated neck line shirt, available in a few solid shades and print styles ($49.90). I like the simple, elegant look, but find the price tag hefty for something like this. I thought about it for a while and decided on taking it home with me anyways. I wore it in my last monthly favorites video.
Swan print dress with elastic waist, front slit, and belt $79.90. This is a casual, yet classy dress. The material is soft, comfortable, and light weight. I really liked the look of this dress, but both and small and extra small were big on me. The images on the Zara site makes this dress appear black, but it's actually a very dark blue.
Sleeveless blue dress with gold toned zipper accent ($59.90). A very form fitting dress from Zara's TRF line. This one is good for going out, not so much for work - I didn't notice how exposed the back was until I was in the fitting room.
Zara Kids fur vest coat with detachable belt ($39.90). I excitedly tweeted about this one when I came across it. Good fit, soft material, and decent price tag. The largest kids size in XL actually runs big, so I got it in kids L instead. It comes in two shades, I opted the brown one. Sizing is limited online, try checking the retail store.
Zara Kids Dress with Frills ($39.90). A very pretty true green dress, the lighting makes it appear turquoise . I tried on the ages 13-14 size, and it fits well. The fabric is soft, but wrinkles easily. The length is great for those of us with shorter legs. It looks great with a belt, but does not come with one. There's a similar dress in tan, but I like green one better and took it home.
Zara Kids Embroidered white shirt ($29.90). A girly white shirt that can be paired with just about anything. The ages 13-14 size worked out for me. Fabric is comfortable, breathe-able, but a tad sheer.
I'm so glad that Zara finally got their online shopping up and running! Has anyone tried shopping through their site yet?
