Spanish Stranger

Zara is probably my favorite fast fashion store to browse. I rarely buy, though. On Monday, I finally succumbed to its Spanish mystique.

I’m now the proud owner of my first item from Spanish fast fashion chain Zara. “Proud” isn’t quite the right word, since I try to avoid buying fast fashion new. I was unsuccessful in thrifting a denim skirt, after visiting multiple secondhand shops. I finally bought this staple new. I like to pretend that, because Zara is Spanish, it is better than Forever 21. (And maybe it is?)

    I’ve bought Zara secondhand a few times, in my experience with the items I own it’s definitely much higher quality than forever21, as far as ethical concerns go I don’t know how it stacks up.

      My minimal internet research says that Zara does better than most with fair wages and low environmental impact.

    I really am liking the high/low denim non-hems lately. Kinda fresh! The floral is great. Another good DIY idea.

      Would you DIY the embroidery? I don’t have the patience, but I think you can do it with a fancy machine.
