So what was in the bag?!
As I anticipated on my last post, I promised to talk about my second personal shopper adventure with my anonymous friend.
So you might or might not recall, our mysterious shopper is a very practical person, leads a fast-paced life and has a love/hate relationship with shopping and fashion…this is where I come to the rescue.
On our second shopping spree we decided to go back to Zara for some more basics that were easily matchable, wearable and most importantly, washable. There is to be no dry-cleaning involved people!
So what did we go for this time? I’ve had my eyes on the wax coated skinny jeans for a while, it’s the latest denim trend. Not only are they the vegan alternative to leather pants, they’re budget-friendly so hundreds of euros less than the leather variety. If you’re not happy with Zara’s version of the waxed denim, be sure to check out J Brand, Hudson Jeans, Rag&Bone or for the more sophisticated dudette, Victoria Beckham.
Of course, you know how infatuated I am with denim shirts. A simple denim button up can go so many different ways, the possibilities are just endless. Simply a must-have.
Sweater vest or sleeveless cardigan was another one of our snatches. These knitwear pieces are so versatile they can be worn throughout the four seasons and are also great for layering during the crisp months. And our last item is a mao collar white blouse with black piping on the neck and cuffs which I thought was a great addition for some work/social wear.
I really really meant it when I said ‘this is where I come to the rescue’ on the previous paragraph. This was my friend’s actual purchase of the day……shocking. This is as far as I let her choose anything for herself ever again!
Kidding!!! These are actually kinda cool, no? Paired up with her new green coated denim….? think about it…..
