Hello everyone :-)
I hope you're all enjoying the wet, cold and windy disaster that is this week! The weather has made me uncomfortably aware of how few warm jumpers I own, although I inherited one just a few moments ago from my brother, who I managed to convince that he looked a little bit 'unmanly' in it due to it's small sizing. I mean, I didn't lie just to get a new jumper...that would be meanIt was for his own good, okay? 
On top of that, I should be getting £30 back from Zara.com over the next week so maybe I'll invest in something warm and cosy with that. Every cloud and all that. 

So basically you may or may not be aware that I have been awaiting a delivery from Zara for the last 5 days (when they say standard delivery, they really do mean standard don't they?). To buy these clothes, I had to make debit card changes just to fit their website, paid nearly £60, waited for 5 days and then guess what? Only one of the items was okay to keep. The clothes are absolutely beautiful, the packaging divine and the return system wonderfully simple, but the XS trousers I ordered were definitely not extra small! They must have been at least a size 10, if not a 12, and I don't mean to sound snobby at all but that's more 'small' than 'extra small' no?

The only thing that made the order a pleasant experience was my beautiful new shirt, which I honestly had to force myself out of after trying it on to make sure it fitted. It's ridiculously silky and is an absolute delight to wear, although, the stitching was not exactly perfect and their were a few threads that needed chopping off.
None the less, I adore it. So, when the clothes look that good, are delivered wrapped up and in a perfect box, and cost the amount they do, is it just bad luck that made my Zara.com experience a bad one?
I definitely won't be ordering trousers from them again, but I'm interested to know if anyone else has ordered from them and what their experience of it was like?

I better head off as the season finale of New Girl is on shortly (so sad) and I want to try and get some work done before then. I'm not quite sure what I'll do without my weekly doses of Jess and the gang now! I hope you all have a lovely rest of the week! Ciao

That's too bad you had a bad experience, I've never ordered from them so I can't say anything about it. But I agree with you on the shirt, it's pretty awesome :)

That shirt is beautiful, Zara sizes are always all over the place so I tend to go in store to buy, their clothes are amazing though! X

Aw no that's such a shame! I find Zara sizes to be crazy too. I'm glad the shirt is ok though because it's too cute! xxx
