Hello, leather coat of my dreams! The sheepskin just adds to the cozy factor. And that leather color? Sumptuous.
Find it at Zara. They’re really getting it right this season.
On that note, my previous go-to, Uniqlo, now totally bites. What happened?

I made a pit stop at Zara last week to escape the heat and check out their new wares for fall. I’m not usually into the big Z — I have horrible associations of ugly purple poly-blends during my time in Rome, circa 2004 — but I was willing to give it another chance after seeing some love around ye olde blogosphere. Let’s just say that I wasn’t disappointed (more like I had a pile larger than I could conceivably carry in less than ten minutes, then had to dump it all to go meet a friend; sorry, Zara employees).
As such, here’s my fall wish list in a nutshell. Notice the leather, the draping, the longer hemlines and the lack of patterns. I’m not sure I’ll ever (willingly) wear a pattern again after this ungodly hot summer. Curse you, summer sundresses and your large vintage florals! I’ll wear you, but I won’t like it.

Also, notice that Zara has a web presence as of — this month, I think? Yes!
