I'd get a job and work from now , just it's almost impossible here for a teenager who's still at school to get a decent job , simple jobs are considered as scandals in our level :S i cant work as a sales assistant or these stuff before i get to the college and do what i like , 7 months to go and pay for my clothes , but they will pay for my uni !

anyway show us the cape , i'll tell u if i like it
and anyway i got new clothes in my clothes , which i bought earlier in summer but was keeping them , from zara and other shops , just too lazy to take pics

hahaha don't worry, my parents are from the middle-east too so i understand. even though i did work and wanted to, my dad didn't like it! he couldn't understand why i would want to go to school AND work at the same time! and the job market is so bad right now anyway...

i will try and take a photo of the cape tonight

going to hit zara today and see what rubbish people have left behind for me

i've got 7 months to go to the uni , and i'll be able to work if i want ! weird that it's a scandal when you're at school and a pride when you're in the uni ! it's the same job !!!!!

anyway Zara isn't so popular in Egypt as it is in UK , it's not the public's first choice as it's prices arent so cheap here (due to the currency rates every british pound = around 9 egyptian pounds which makes things expensive )
so even in sales people don't go crazy and hit up the shops except in the clearance sale in summer , things get sold for like 70% off ! so people line up all over the place , they don't even try the clothes !

At least in Spain (and from what I can read, seems to be the same in the rest of europe) good discounts come in the "second sale" that is a week or two after official sale starts. Here the first week discounts go from 5 to 10 €, while a couple of weeks later you can find stuff with a discount over 50% of the original price... just a matter of luck to find that amazing item that was 80€ at 20€ by the end of the month!

Does anyone know if Zara will give you store credit if you want to return something and have lost the receipt? I'm in the UK if that makes a difference!

^For new collection: If the item is not worn, and the label still attached, they'll probably suggest you choose something else, if you don't find anything and keep asking your money back, they have to. It's Zara policy. Some stores might even give you your money back instantly.
For sale items, I'm not sure, I think you'll only be able to choose something else, no cash refund.
