I had never heard of Zara before YLF and we don't have one anywhere around here but when I checked out their website I was impressed with the up-to-date styles and cheap prices so thought I would give them a try. Plus I was impressed with their shipping policies, my order came quickly.

I ordered 2 sweaters and 4 pairs of boots. Overall I was impressed. The sweaters seem like nice quality but don't fit me at all so will be going back. It was really hard to tell fit by the pictures (I don't look at all like the models, haha) and they are both huge and long. I wear petites whenever possible but can often get away with regular sizes depending on how they fall but no way with these. I included a picture of me in the grey zip one. I would have liked this but besides being too big, the pockets fell right at my hips and it was not a good look.

The boots all fit well. I'm usually a 7 1/2 and the 38 fit me. The grey booties are not good. Cheap material, stiff, uncomfortable, definitely going back.

I love the OTK boots, not too cheap looking for not being leather and I think they are flattering. However, I'm not sure I could wear them with anything but dresses so they might not be versatile enough for me.I tried them with pants tucked in and it was just too much fabric.

The black heels are really quite nice, love the shaft height and the leather is fairly soft. I think the heel is too high for me though, not sure I could wear them for any length of time. They look higher is real life than in the picture.

The silver sock booties are cute and comfy, I really like them. I just have to decide if I would get enough use out of them. They'd be fun around the holidays.

So I may return everything, or may keep the OTK boots and the silver booties. I think I will look for some other black boots like these with a lower heel because I really liked they way they looked with my cropped pants. Overall I liked the items and will be trying Zara again. What do you all think? Have you had similar experiences with Zara?

Oh also, is this blue faux leather jacket too big? I don't like things to be tight so tend to go too big but I'm thinking this might be too much. It is pretty comfortable though. Ack! So indecisive!
