WTH Is Zara Selling a Skirt Featuring a Pepe the Frog Look-alike?

zara-skirt-1
Every couple of months, like clockwork, a mass retailer does something so blatantly clumsy that you almost have to wonder whether it was actually intentional. The latest gaffe comes courtesy of Zara in the form a denim skirt that's being criticized for featuring an embroidery that closely resembles Pepe the Frog, a meme that's been appropriated by hate groups. The skirt in question features two frogs: one in the same green shade as Pepe, and one a mirror image in a darker green hue. Both share Pepe's characteristic thin red lips and bulging eyes, which are obscured by sunglasses. Every couple of months, like clockwork, a mass retailer does something so blatantly clumsy that you almost have to wonder whether it was...

There Is A Zara Outlet and This is not drill

lefties3-620x491

Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year. It’s still January, it’s grey outside and it’s the middle of the month. Don’t lose heart just yet, though: we’ve unearthed some news that might just put a smile on your face.

As reported by Harpers Bazaar, it turns out that a Zara outlet store actually exists. While this sounds like the stuff of dreams, it’s not. Called Lefties (short for Leftovers), it was created by Inditex in 1993 to help sell all of the last season stock at amazing discounts.

We’re praying that Lefties arrives on UK shores soon

One burning question we do have is: how on earth has such a Nirvana existed since 1993 without us knowing about it?! Well, here...

Pretty in Plaid: 8 Fresh Ways to Wear Fall’s Favorite Print

617969992
I usually avoid wearing prints unless it's plaid. The checkered pattern is possibly the easiest of all prints to wear—and this is coming from a girl who mostly dresses in head-to-toe black. I fell in love with the classic print in third grade. On picture day, I picked out a yellow plaid jacket to wear with my red plaid skirt, and to this day, I still feel good about it. Fast-forward 20 years: I find myself in love with the autumnal pattern again. This month alone I have invested in a pair of plaid shoes, a calf-length plaid skirt, and a plaid scarf...

This Is Zara’s New Favorite Trend

zara-is-endorsing-this-celebrity-approved-trend-1950541-1477328043-600x0c
We're on constant Zara trend patrol, given the fact that the fast-fashion brand is at the top of the heap when it comes to embracing directional trends. With its latest crop of new arrivals, it's quite apparent that embroidery is the retailer's latest obsession. (Amal Clooney is clearly on board too: She stepped out wearing a statement-making pair of embroidered flares last week, and the internet couldn't stop talking about it, us included.) Embroidery is perhaps the most beautiful of the current crop of trends and can run the gamut from subtle to bold. It can adorn anything from shoes to bomber jackets (but we're particularly fond of the way it pops against denim). Zara has everything to cover your embroidery needs, including...

Ok, so you got through New York Fashion Week sounding like a pro. Then London came around and you were feeling pretty confident.

Fendi show, Runway, Autumn Winter 2016, Milan Fashion Week, Italy - 25 Feb 2016

Fendi’s AW16 show was the stuff of fashion dreams. Luxe fabrics, coloured fur, over the knee boots and simply ah-mazing bags with adjustable straps.

It was love at first sight for the front row at the Milan show. The box bags as carried by Kendall Jenner and co were the talk of the Italian town. And when we found out the straps could be removed and replaced with other styles? We fell hook, line and sinker.
