As my holidays in Portugal are coming to a sad end soon, I continue on this week with showing you guys my favourite clothing stores in Portugal. Zara started in 1975 by Amancio Ortega and Rosalía Mera. It is the main brand of the Inditex group and has become the world’s largest apparel retailer. The fashion group also owns brands such as Massimo Dutti, Pull and Bear, Bershka, Stradivarius, Oysho, Zara Home, and Uterqüe.
I fell in love with Zara many many years ago and every time I flew back to Portugal for holidays and I would just stock up Zara clothes as Australia for a long while didn’t have a Zara store until it finally opened up in Sydney in 2011. Now, I shop at both Zara in Australia and Portugal, combining both of their different seasons. #winning
Few clothing brands keep up with the latest fashion, are of high quality and more importantly, yet affordable. It’s probably all of these qualities that have made Zara, the Spanish clothing brand become the go-to fashion brand for all all over the world, and still dominate many years later.
The secret to Zara’s success is largely due because of the way it keeps up with street fashion with the changing times. The brand takes a look at how fashion is changing every day and makes new designs and puts them into stores in a week or two. Most other fashion brands tend to take a whole six months to get their new designs onto the market.
This weeks look I’ve gone for a sleek and stylish look that I wear often myself. It incorporates the current sailor trend with the pants and a gorgeous blouse with lace and ankle boots. This look can be worn to the office, out for dinner or even just for a catch up with the girls.
Happy fabulous Friday and weekend everyone.
Sending you all virtual love & hugs. Beijinhos (kisses), Susana xoxo
