Zara Lookbook summer 2010

I've been obsessing over Miu Miu's spring/summer 2010 prints hoping and wishing that Zara would replicate the cats and swallow bird prints and surely enough, they have. I've been popping in and out of every Zara store I've come across and until today, I discovered a couple pieces from their lookbook in store, with minimal sizes available. With much anticipation, I grabbed everything that was Miu Miu inspired and tried them on. Verdict: All fails. The picture above didn't even have the collars, which is supposed to be the best part!!! And the one navy summer dress I tried on with swallows was made out of jersey, with a raw edge, and was a very unflattering length for me. All in all, it was not worth the effort of altering and the quality turned me off even more so. I suppose the real deal will only suffice...

I understand. I grabbed the dress in the picture above (with no collar as stated) and tried it on. It was like I was drowning in a navy pool of cats, and I had on the smallest size . I'm not even that small.

I guess we will have to continue the hunt.

I know! Was that romper supposed to be oversized? I just don't know. I was trying to find ways to make myself fall in love with it, but it was just not happening for me.
