Hello everyone! Before my recent vacation I went on a big Zara haul, I love a good excuse to go shopping! Of course, shortly after my haul, Zara released their semi-annual sale. Is it just me or does it always stings a little when you buy something and then see it go on sale?! Oh well! At least now with all their great prices I can go back and buy a few more things!
My dress is currently on sale for just $22.99! Such a steal! Especially considering the quality and detailing on this dress. Apparently this type of embroidery is called “Schiffli embroidery”. I just learned that from the Zara website, lol! I’m glad I did because this style of embroidery has always been my favorite. I love how the stitching creates small eyelet holes. This type of embroidery is often used to create contrast in a garment, the stitching contrasts the fabric so that the details stand out.
I played off the contrast in the dress by accessorizing with more black and white. My purse is also from Zara. I’ve been recommending Zara to a lot of people as a great place to find inexpensive accessories, especially bags and shoes. I often see accessories at Zara that look like designer dupes, at fraction of the price.
Below are some of my favorite “Schiffli” embroidered dresses for summer!
