Found: An Online Store That Could Almost Pass as Zara
One of the greatest things about Zara is the constant influx of fresh trend pieces that are mimicked from the runway and the streets. It’s pretty rare that I’ll leave empty-handed after walking into a store, even if it’s just for a simple new accessory to refresh my work outfits. But one of the problems about Zara (and I’m sure we’ve all had this similar horrid experience) are the huge lines for the change rooms and the cashier—it’s almost enough to put you off purchasing in the first place. And most painfully, there’s the fact that you can’t avoid this experience by shopping online. Not everyone has the time or patience to shop in store, which is why I’m about to let you in on a solution to this issue.
When I’m after elevated basics and trend pieces, similar to Zara has to offer, I turn to Mango online. The European brand has free shipping to Australia (for orders over $100) and easy returns. Be prepared to find unique statement earrings, beautiful tailored work-wear pieces, and a constant range of gorgeous shoes ranging from block-heeled mules to metallic ankle boots. So do your wardrobe a favour and bookmark this site ASAP.
