shopping damage february - part I

>click the images to see more detailed versions<

I've been eying this blouse ever since it came out but was a bit put off by the price. I was surprised to find it on the sales rack, especially in my size! It was more than 50% reduced so I couldn't resist any longer. The layers and the draping is so beautiful - love it! (from Zara)

Amazing blazer in a wonderful girly color. It's a powdery lilac that makes gives it a slightly romantic touch despite it's very uniform like cut and detailing. I have seen this in store when it first came out but didn't even try it on because it was one of the priciest blazers in the store and I think also one of the center pieces of the Zara winter collection. So I was even more surprised to find this on the sales rack than I was when I found the blouse. Also the price was irresistible, it was reduced to only CHF 40 (about EUR 27 / USD 34)! It also goes great with the blouse and makes a white tee with jeans look instantly chic. I'm so happy I found it!

Not on sale was the belt from the Zara summer collection (which I posted earlier). I also saw the "matching" silk dress which would make the Balmain-esque look perfect but I didn't really want to spend that much money on a cocktail dress that I don't really need. I have to think about it again...after all I do have lot of black dresses then again the silk dress was divine and would add some glamour to my wardrobe =P.
