Zara Australia Online Store is finally here… pray for my wallet!
Dear Australia, Zara has finally opened up it’s digital doors on our shores. And with racks upon racks of runway inspired fashion available upon the click of a button, I for one couldn’t be happier.
With my nearest physical Zara being over 1,700 KM away (to put this in perspective, this is like driving from London to Vienna) I couldn’t wait to fill my cart with Zara goodies!
Read on for outfit that I styled from Zara Australia.
Wearing (all Zara):
Every time I go back to the UK, I find myself having some sort of ridiculously huge shopping spree in Zara. And when I say big, I mean BIG. Like, so big that Jake walks around the store like a human clothes hanger holding 20 garments as I rummage through racks like a foraging rabbit before hibernation. As a matter of fact, every time we head on a weekend away to Sydney or Melbourne I drag the poor boyf around Zara for hours on end. Well babe, you’re lucky: it’s all online now! ** Does evil Mr Burns ‘excellent’ hand motion**
I was lucky enough to be given a $150 voucher for the Zara Australia Online Store and I took this as a kind of challenge to create an on-trend look consisting of pieces that I could mix and match in my wardrobe.
Although many people complain that Zara can be overprice, I bagged my skirt, top, bag and a pair of shorts for a mere $152. #JobWellDone . Sometimes I wish bargain hunting were an Olympic sport!
I was attracted to this skirt because of the vibrant, yet muted colour palette, which makes it easy to pair with other pieces in my wardrobe. As for the bag, I have an actual addiction to basket bags, or anything basket-bag like, so I couldn’t help but get my mitts on this grey number.
Zara Australia Online Store: My Verdict
“Hello, my name is Rachel and I have a shoe addiction”, I say as I browse the Zara Australia online store.
Jokes aside, there are some pretty good picks on this new slice of the internet! Although I do wish that Zara had more prints and bohemian clothes, a lot of the plainer pieces are far too sensible for me.
As for pricing, I’d say it’s pretty reasonable. Cute dresses tend to range between 50 and a hundred dollars, whilst basics such as tees will set you back a mere 10 bucks!
Living in Cairns, I knew that the ‘overnight’ shipping option had as much chance of happening as Taylor Swift turning up on my door riding a unicorn. Funnily enough, the parcel actually came within a few days, which is very fast for Cairns. Anyone who lives in North Queensland will know that Australia post seem to use horses and carts to travel through the rural areas between Brisbane and Cairns.
As for quality, I find that Zara quality is generally quite good, although there are a few ‘miss’ pieces, as you would find at any high street store. Even if the quality isn’t the finest cashmere, I find that Zara is a great place to pick up on trend pieces that actually look more expensive than a lot of garments you pick up at high street stores.
Some of my favorite trends that you can shop on the website now include:
- Linen dresses
- Ankle boots
- Tweed bags
- Check prints
- Cross over waist pieces
Well all I can say is: Zara online, I will be back soon. As a matter of fact, I have a tab open now and am slowly but slowly adding items to my cart. Just don’t tell the boyfriend!
