Zara- Sydney

I am hoping most of you are aware that Zara opened its doors to Sydney just 2 days ago. Something that most of you have been waiting for, for a long time! Zara is also set to open in Melbourne soon as well. So what about Brisbane? Hopefully the Spaniards have plans to expand further in Australia and let us get a piece of the action. I am travelling to Sydney next week to check out this Zara store for myself. So in a week or so hopefully I’ll have wonderful things to tell you about the new store that I am hoping is 3 stories of shoppers paradise.

You might know the store? Near the cinemas at Southbank? Izabel+ Sebastian is home to some of my favourite local labels including SOOT. and House of Ezis but to be honest you would be better off shopping online. Since my trip to the store last Wednesday didn’t come with the friendliest of customer service. Such a shame for a store with such beautiful clothes.
