Zara’s new transitional collection is seriously on point. I wandered in there on a whim last week and had heart eye emoji all the way around the store. Lots of sumptuous textures such as suede and velvet and loads of super pretty printed and embellished pieces. Yes, please. Without sounding like a moaning Myrtle, one bug bear I have with Zara is how darn slow the tills are! Is this just the case with the Liverpool and Leeds stores? Or does it happen in other stores too? The Liverpool store now has self-service (card only tills) in the changing rooms, which are a faff to use, but definitely saved me spending my afternoon in a queue that snaked the entire shop.
Moans aside, I ended up coming away with two pieces which dramatically burned a hole in my purse, but I just could not resist either and I know they will be well worn. I am thinking a lot about my wardrobe at the moment and what kind of clothes I want in there. I am certainly much more of a AW dresser and feel most comfortable in bold colours and patterns.
As I was walking around the store, two women asked me where I found the bodysuit featured above. The mediums were rapidly declining in stock so I swooped to purchase. I have a feeling that this sateen bodysuit will become a cult favourite in the blogosphere. It is super flattering and despite my reservations, is extremely comfy to wear also. I wear mine with black skinny jeans (Topshop Jamies) for something like a meal out, or to the office.
Ah just looking at this beauty makes me so happy. As soon as I saw this, swallowed the price tag and tried it on – I knew I had to have it. My boyfriend says it looks like a dressing gown, people at work say I look like i’m going to Hogwarts. I say, they have no taste. I am head over heels for the seriously gorgeous olive shade teamed with my favourite colour magenta purple. I love how luxe this outerwear piece is. Described by Zara as a long silk velvet kimono I do feel those Emporer vibes. I wear mine with a plain LBD and tights combo, perspex heels included if I’m at work. I love it…but I have to be sooo careful with it.
