Last month I did a post called Five Fall Fashion Trends for 2019. One of the trends was “Statement Coats and Capes,” where I featured a double-breasted trench coat from Zara… one of my new favorite brands.
I ordered this coat and wanted to tell you how fabulous it is.
I’ve discovered Zara, and I love their clothes. This surprises me for two reasons: It’s fast fashion plus the fabrics are poly blends. I will still buy an occasional investment piece, but for fashionable seasonable clothes, I’m having fun shopping online with Zara. While these outfits may not hold up a few years from now…
Over the short pull I’m getting chic designer looking clothes for a fraction of the price.
I have a girlfriend in Austin who always says I’m too dressed up for Austin. Sometimes she’s right and sometimes she’s not, but I don’t care. I’m dressing for me, not to follow a trend or fit in with the hip Austin millennials—who all look alike—the older hippie dippy crowd or those women of a certain age who look fabulous.
I’m interested in what looks good on me.
