Have you heard of ZARA?
It is coming to Oak Brook mall this year and I am totally excited. It is another large store, aimed at younger people (the one’s that short shirts and shorter shorts), with easy to digest prices. It started in Spain in 1975. There are now over 1800 stores world wide.
I know! Don’t you feel like we’ve been left out?
Interesting tid bit, Zara was started and is owned by the third richest man in the world. Yep. And my dad told me there was no money in fashion school.
I actually went to a Zara store in Seville, Spain. Yes, of course I bought stuff and that was a coupla years ago and I still have the stuff. I’ve also gone to the Michigan Ave store BUT OakBrook is way closer.
This is good news ladies. Oh and there is a men’s dept too. And kids, I believe.
Being able to wash things is a giant priority for me. If I can’t wash it, I feel like it is for a special occassion! If I buy it, I want to wear it.
The mens’ department is also very “fashion forward”. I don’t believe my husband would wear anything from here. Maybe my 15 year old. He is not fashion forward at ALL but if you pick through you can find some good stuff. Like this sweat shirt is very cool.
I can’t find the opening date so until then we will just have to shop online!
