can i get it all?

I've had Zara in malls around me for a while, but I've truly never gone inside to look with any serious intention of shopping. So, when I was blog browsing the other day and ran across this post from Megan at Across The Pond, I was shocked to find all the pieces came from Zara. My eyes were opened.

I knew, however, that Zara didn't have online shopping in the U.S., so I reluctantly went to their website to see if there was even the ability to view items online. Much to my surprise, when I clicked on United States, this message popped up:
FYI, that's tomorrow, and it's already penned in my calendar.

Because my favorite way to shop is online, I knew this would be a problem. Then, I started browsing and realized that it is going to be, in fact, a HUGE problem. The biggest problem of all is how I'm going to eliminate 3/4 of my desired items. I'm hoping they'll do some sort of special deal since they're just starting this, but I can only hope at this point.

...and I just found on facebook that if you sign up by 5 o'clock tonight you can preview online shopping at 6PM.

Here are only the items that I most love.


All images are of course from Zara's website.

Almost all of them are work and outside of work friendly, have a mature but fun look to them, and are not completely and outrageously expensive. 

What do you think? What are your favorites? 

Between this, Missoni for Target in a few more days, and the possibility of H&M online shopping coming next year, I really am going to have to learn a new level of self control when browsing the interwebs and filling virtual baskets and carts.

thanks for posting the facebook tidbit! i just liked them so i can torture myself at 6pm tonight woo hoo! one thing about ZARA that is a little annoying is that their sizes are off sometimes... a lot of times i have to buy a size up, especially with shorts/pants/etc. in fact... and really ironically... i am wearing a pair of ZARA shorts for the first time today that i bought 2 years ago b/c they just now fit. lets go to the one at international sometime soon! maybe while the boys are out of town? let me knowwww loveeee you!!! xoxoxo!!

i LOVE Zara. Love.
Fell in love when I was living in Europe (where it's a LOT cheaper than here!) and now I can't get enough - if only I could afford it...

Ha! I hadn't heard of Zara either until Megan. She's a crafty one, she is.

Yay for online shopping! It really is the best thing ever, in my opinion...once I know how their sizes run for me. There's no end to it.

Our exchange student, Angela, LOVED Zara. It's very popular in Spain! It's a great store (we went to one in DC)!!

You're such an enabler! (I know I'm not one to talk, but really... I did not need to know this.) Now I'm excited.
