That’s right, until a few weeks ago, I was a Zara virgin. Had never owned any Zara item. You see, there are no actual Zara stores anywhere close to Charlotte (I think Atlanta is the closest) and I just hadn’t had much exposure to the brand. Of course, in the blog world, it doesn’t take long to figure out that Zara offers some very funky, on trend, fashion items at (amazingly) very reasonable prices.
So, when I started lusting after a pair of skinny camo’s, Zara seemed like a good brand to check out. Now, I must admit I was a little skeptical at first. As a curvy girl, it’s difficult for me to find jeans and pants (skinny in particular) that fit properly. And being unfamiliar with the brand, I was really nervous about the fit, but I decided to give them a try.
Well, all of that worry was clearly for nothing. To say I love them would be a severe understatement. These pants are fabulous!! I love the worn in look, the zipper embellishments and added seams for detail. And they fit like a glove! They feel like that favorite pair of jeans that you’ve worn for years. (So of course I immediately purchased 2 more pair of Zara jeans online! Yes, Zara, this will probably be the beginning of a long and torrid love affair!).
Anyway, I wore this look all day on Saturday. I decided to change it up a little while out for dinner with my girlfriends later that night (you’ll see that look in Part 2 of this post later this week).
