yeah i remember reading a rant where someone said that Zara is no better than f21, they just trick you by being in better locations and their store design.  i am starting to agree....except they'll have silk and real leather..f21 never does.  

i remember ordering those valentino esque boots this season and when i received them the toe was scuffed badly.  i went into the store and EVERY SINGLE DAMN BOOT was scuffed at the toe. what????

i don't really shop at h&m. i gave up on them when i saw all these bloggers with this awesome peplum top...and went to a gazillion stores and could never find it

honestly...i just shop at NM, Saks, Bloomies and Nordies and try to find the same quality clothing at Marshalls and TMaxx & Loehmanns, OffSaks and Last Call. no shame.

OMG i have to agree with you. I bought a dress one time, i think i posted it in the other thread got home and tried the dress on and it was rip from the middle of my back to my ass crack. Went back for an exchange and they said all of the dresses were ripped in the same place. Are y'all for serious.

Then i went to their sale yesterday, everything i picked up was full price. What the hell? I was so annoyed dropped the stuff and left. it was crowded messes and then full priced items in the sale area. i was done with them yesterday.


Belle was that a red sleeveless dress from this summer? I had the same thing happen to me with that particular dress and even ordered mine from the online hoping it would be different! Still ripped in the rear area. Cry I had to just reinforce the stitches by hand. Still love the dress tho.
YEEESSSS!!! and remember i got it in red because i wanted to wear it for V-DAY and because i like Crimson colored thingsBig smile. It also came in like a cobalt blue. Such a cute dress that was va va voom. But i don't believe in buying things full price and still having to reinforce it when i get home. THat should have been done in the factory before the price tag was attachéd to the item. 

The only thing I'm willing to do is taper trousers when they are too long, because i understand why the makers made them long. And taking in a large item that was on clearance. the money that I'm saving is what i will use to pay the seamstress. Huummpphh!!!

I can't be cheap as I like to anymore and I feel like Zara charges too much for the quality....like yall pointed out

and H&M....yeah that place is awful....maybe if I was a size 6 or something

I will spend more time in the outlet Nordstrom, Sak and Neiman Marcus stores now....unfortunately
In the end it will be worth it, your clothes will shrink, rip, or have to worry about the seams getting loose. LOL Tongue It 's always better to spend more on quality timeless pieces.

i tried to find that shirt at H&M that said black on it. But yeah no where to be found. I don't really walk into H&M because the layout of the store is always disorganized. I can't think straight. Same with the the forever. I haven't walked into one of those in forever. if I'm pressed for accessories i may go there. 

But I have to disagree with the zara not being any better than F21. THey can't be compared. Im sorry. Yes quality control F's up at Zara but there are still quality pieces I've bought from there that I've had now for years. That includes my blazers. Oh how i love my blazers from Zara.

LOL Yeah I almost bought  the blue as well but remembered what the red was like. Cry

I went to Zara today and only bought 1 blazer, 1 scarf and 4 shoes in the sale and will be taking 1 pair back as I already have similar pairs (black, patent ballerina flats!) I got 4 pairs of heels in the Aldo sale, but that's all I think for my sale shopping this winter. I really don't have the space for more clothes until my new closet arrives. I did put about 20 pairs of shoes in my charity donation bag though so don't feel so bad for buying 8 pairs today. Stern Smile

If you have time thrifting is a good option. I always find quality clothing, things were made so much better back in the day lol.
