So the photos I included in this post about the Zara November 2013 Lookbook are not by any means the whole collection but they are eight of my favorites. Of course the pieces I really want (the ones within my price range) are sold out with no signs of returning. For instance the semi-sheer fitted sweaters in navy and gray, gone! I also really want to get my hands on the white flared skirt in the above pic but as of right now only a medium is available and in my opinion Zara’s skirts runs big.
I recently mentioned some items I purchased that were coming my way and I was so excited but I only ended up keeping the checked dress with zips (seen on Olivia Palermo). I do need to take it to a tailor though to have it shortened and if possible taken in on the sides. I also bought the neoprene flared skirt but I do not recommend it. The material is thinner than expected and on my height (5’3) it hits at an awkward length, the widest part of my calf, making them look larger than they are. I also really wanted to love the suede heels with metallic detail for their basic shape and short, sturdy heel, but alas, they looked awful with everything in my closet.
But the good news is in my second box from Zara I loved it all, all being two items. The first is the gray box pleat skirt, usually I take an XS in their skirts but all was available was a small. It fits great but I may have the waistband taken in a smidge. The material is also amazing, perfect for this season. The other item I LOVE is the black crop t-shirt. The material is different from expected, almost like spandex but very flattering. Now this item does run more on the smaller side. It’s tight. Just forewarning if you come across it since I was unable to find it on the site. Have you guys made and Zara purchases lately?
