My critical eye and judgement of clothing quality were both thrown out the window when I saw this pretty sweater coat. I was so in love with the cut, fabric and beading that I neglected to see the very poor quality of this piece. The collar was sewn on crookedly, the beading on one sleeve feel off almost immediately after leaving the house, the lining is longer than the outer layer, all edges of the jacket had frayed within 3 hours of wearing it, and to top it off, it’s over-priced. I would NOT recommend buying this jacket.
Hopefully this can serve as a “buyer beware” post. Since I’m now stuck with this jacket, I will wear it, but I will not show it here again. I think I will contact Zara, explain the situation, and see if they will take it back as a defective item, however I’m not holding my breath. (Expensive) lesson learned.
P.S. A big hello to Jennifer, whom I met yesterday at H&M. So sorry to run off so quickly with a bright red face from embarrassment, and I know I was totally awkward. You’re the first person I’ve met in real life from the blogging world. It was wonderful meeting you, even only for a few seconds.
