Zara blowout!

Zara has a pretty big sale going on in stores right now. From my experience, there's a big selection, but the deals are just okay. There were a few I thought were worth the price. There's only one Zara in Dallas, so I stop in each time I'm at the Galleria. I never know when the sales are in advance, I just happen to stop in at the right time (a sign that I spend too much time at the mall). Zara doesn't have good sales very often. They'll always have a few items on a tiny sale rack, but hardly ever a blowout. I think this only happens once a year, usually in July, when they're trying to get rid of last season items. IMHO, last season or not-- a good deal's a good deal.

I made two visits to Zara in the past week. The first time, the deals weren't too great and I was pretty shopped out, since Zara was one of my last stops (Shopped out? Me? Pfft, I know.). Here are some pics from my first visit:

Sorry for the crappy quality of photos. My old Blackberry Pearl needs an upgrade. I think I tried on a few more items but didn't take photos. I left without purchasing anything that day, because again, I was shopped out. And the prices weren't enticing enough for the cheap fabric they use on a lot of their stuff.

Yellow silk-ish material ruffle dress- Material is okay, the dress was on sale for $40. I didn't get it because I think the ruffles made me look too wide since it wasn't very slimming and it had a stain right smack dab in the middle front at the chest area.. very noticeable. Also, I'm not really a yellow person. When I came back a day later, the dress was only $30. I still didn't buy it. The one I tried on in the pic is a size XS.

White floral crochet dress with slip attached- I really liked this one. I'm obsessed with crochet and white! The only reason I didn't buy it was because it was a little short for comfort and the slip inside was made of this nasty, super cheap material... feels like the same material as crappy Barbie clothes. It was also on sale for $40, but when I came back again, it was gone. Someone must've wanted it more than I did.

Red flare skirt dress- I had seen this dress on several blog posts (seen on Frankie Sandford here); I remember it the most from Squeeze The Pug's post. The Zara I went to had this dress in camel (like Squeeze The Pug's), red, and royal blue. I knew I wasn't going to make much use of the blue one. It was between red and camel for me. I hadn't even made a decision before learning that the only way I could go, anyway, was red, since they didn't have my size in camel. I'm happy with it. The material is pretty stiff, but I think it will be a good one for fall/winter. Would pair well with tights and a belt. I tried on both XS and S and decided to go with S, even though the XS looked like a better fit. The S gave me more room to breathe and was ultimately more comfortable. I didn't buy the first day, regrettably. It was $70. I came back to get it and to get a second look at the sale and found it for $40! BOUGHT, for sure.

I bought that one, along with another dress and top, both that I didn't see the first time. So happy with my purchases and I can't wait to wear them out! Stop by your nearest Zara today, maybe you'll find something!

Good luck!
