What I Wore: Navy Stripes & Zara Studded Sleeve Coat [Update]

3:28 PM

When I started this blog a little over a year ago one of my first posts featured this Zara studded sleeve coat. Last Winter was bitterly cold and I spent most of it layered beneath my North Face so it sat in the closet for most of the season. Fast forward to this Fall, I was excited to really get to play with this coat and use it to it's full potential (I paid full price after all)...

I had qualms about the quality of this coat from the get-go but I missed the return period. I love the coat, I really do, I get tons of compliments on it and it fits well, but a few days after taking these photos I noticed the left sleeve had become unsewn, almost half of the shoulder was hanging off! On closer inspection, the right shoulder was beginning to become unsewn as well (a commenter on the original post mentioned this happening to her). And so it sits in the back of the closet waiting to visit the tailor. I rarely buy such big ticket fast fashion items, and I can honestly tell you I never will again. That said, where are your favorite places to shop for stylish, quality outwear without breaking the bank?
