Birthday jeans!

I know, I know it’s not my birthday till Friday but my fabulous Mum sent me my present early and I’ve been looking at them on the shelf dying to wear them – so I have – 3 days early:)  Knowing how much I loved my floral jeans that I bought when I was back in England, Mum very kindly sent me the Primark leopard print jeans!  They are lovely!  I can’t get over the quality and fit of these jeans for 12 GBP!!  They have a lovely nude background and the spots are almost like brush strokes so not really sure if it’s leopard or cheetah.  Regardless, paired with black they look fabulous.  Total winners and will be worn throughout the Fall into Winter with black boots.

I paired them with my Zara black oversize t-shirt from the sale and my black patent Tory Burch Eddies:

Much as I have fallen in love with Zara over the past few months I am completely bummed with their customer service.  A package went missing the other day with my new trousers – FedEx claim they delivered them – I know they didn’t as I was perched by the door waiting on tenterhooks for the package to arrive!  I’ve even walked around the house a hundred times like a mad woman wondering if they could possibly have been moved by a squirrel with a cruel sense of humor.  Unlike Boden, who always give their customer the benefit of the doubt and refund or resend immediately, on the rare occasion something goes missing, Zara are completely d*cking me around and won’t refund or resend until they have filed a claim with FedEx – aaaarrgggh!!  You wouldn’t believe the time I have spent on the phone trying to talk sense to them.  So two multinational companies who make gazillions every year are holding my $130 until they decide whether they believe me or not!?  SO frustrating – not to mention I don’t have the camouflage or the oriental trousers in my possession…and sadly I still want them no matter how mad I am with Zara.

Look out for tomorrow’s post – a fun collaboration is in store for you all!

    Like yourself I’m a transplant from England. I love reading your blog as I find American shops very stylish but not that fashion forward. I always feel a bit frumpy when I visit my friends back home, you give me great ideas plus inspire me to get my butt on the treadmill. Thanks so much!

    OMG! Thank you for posting this! This is happening to me right now and I was wondering if it happened to other Zara customers. I am NEVER buying anything expensive from the Zara website again! Such bad customer service!

      So sorry to hear this! Did you get it sorted out? In the end it turned out to be FedEx’s fault – they had placed the package in my mailbox which is apparently illegal as only USPS can use mailboxes – so USPS had removed it and sent it back to FedEx. Zara have the attitude that they sell so much they don’t need great CS. I also had to start using my PayPal account to buy stuff online with them – as their banking is in Ireland I was being charged a foreign transaction fee by my bank when I used my bank card!!
