after 5 min. wearing them, I decided not to buy.
the reasons: 36 is too small and 37 is just a bit too large (the shoe comes loose when walking). Also the heel is just a tad too high (10cm) for wearing on a daily base

I hope zara will make more 7-8.5cm heels in the future instead of 10cm+ heels.

^oh no! :p I dislike heels under 10 cm/4 inch. It's either 10 cm or higher for me and luckily, Zara does that! Anything lower than 10 cm is just such an odd unappealing height imo.

haha, I envy you.....

Although I like the looks of 10+cm heels, I also need to walk around and sometimes run (catching public transport) in my shoes. Heels or not, shoes are made for walking.

That's why I think 7-8.5cm heels are appealing for daily wear. Just a bit less in height, but much more practical.

But I do understand and respect girls who are immune to pain and discomfort and keep on challenging killer heels and high platforms.

You can't compare sales prices in Europe to normal prices in the States.

10$ is not the normal price for a pair of Zara jeans, even in Europe. I think they cost at least 29.90 EUR or even 39.90 EUR.

there is also a huge difference in quality among the different lines of jeans at Zara.

Too bad. I'm a 35,5/36, so the 36 is perfect for me.

So true, spain is the cheapest for Zara clothes and i've never seen 10$ jeans (7€) maybe at the end of sales and only for trafa jeans

so 60$ (thats aorund 40€) is the normal thing in Spain. Indeed, that was the price of my last Zara jeans. So its not that expensive over there

Zara sizing
I was wondering if anyone could help me out...

Is there much of a difference between Zara's small and medium? I live in Australia and we do not have a Zara, so I am unable to go in store and try items on. I've managed to get this skirt in black in a small and it fits fine. But now I want it in the beige colour and there's only a medium and large left.

Any help would be great.

There is a difference - I wear S and M is always too big for me; but maybe you can take the waist in.

lily. - Lina5 is right, there is a slight difference between S and M, but that should not bother you too much - I think this skirt would look great even if it falls a bit lower on the waist or, as Lina said, you can always use the belt

Thanks, Lina5 and lola rose, I think I will just try my luck with the medium. If it's too big, I can always sell it on eBay

I think a tailor can fit it perfectly if you really like it. that's what I do with a lot of my clothes.

i've turned my back from zara for the past 2 seasons and this spring, i've rekindled the affair.

i got the ff yesterday

navy trousers - (i wear with the cuffs folded, as in capri)
denim wedge shoes - love the color combo, denim part is very stiff
prada-esque blouse - polyester... great fit, material is "ok"
blue checked shirt - (LOVE) - viscose
