The 55 Best Things in the Zara Sale

This is not a drill. My very favorite sale is here, and it’s a good one. In case you’re not a serial shopper like I am, I’ll take a quick second to clue you in. As of 12:00 a.m. EST today, hundreds of styles at Zara are on sale, and the best ones are sure to sell out before the day is over.

That’s why I stayed up late (that, and I have to drive my brother to the airport at 4 a.m.) to comb through all the pages of sale items and round up my very favorite 55 things. There are pieces in here that are causing me physical pain not to buy—but don’t worry, my no-shopping mandate is still firmly intact.

I’m channeling all my expert shopping energy into encouraging you, my friends, into buying this perfectly charming wicker basket bag, and this painfully chic striped midi skirt or maybe the ultimate power suit in a striking red stretch cotton. Seriously, this stuff is so good and such a bargain so shop like the wind! And send me pictures of your sale hauls so I can live vicariously through all you carefree consumers, por favor.

‘Tis the season for bargain hunting and I, for one, am very thankful that the internet has made it possible to eschew crowded shopping malls in favor of scouring my favorite retailers for the deal du jour from the comfort of my couch. Here’s a tidy little round-up of a few of my current favorite things: the prettiest color-blocked party dress (very OdlR inspired, if you ask me); rich textures in the form of faux fur, flirty lace and playful fringe; and a few outfit-making accessories in the form of a feather-dusted hat and the always-popular monogram necklace.

These little treasures are all on mega-sale right now, and just in case you feel like doing a little more e-window shopping yourself before pulling the trigger on the prettiest of all ruffled silk blouses, here’s a cheat sheet of the best sales happening today!
