This morning I attended the Zara Chadstone launch with Connie (K for Kani), Jess (What Would Karl Do) and fellow blogers at the Fashion Capital to welcome the Spanish giant’s second flagship store in Melbourne. You may recall the Bourke St Mall launch in this post. Zara just keeps answering the prayers of fashion-forward stylistas. Inside the spacious store, designed similarly to the New York Fifth Avenue one, I see pieces inspired by the likes of Acne, Balenciaga, Balmain, Celine, Chanel, Chloe, Givenchy, Isabel Marant, 3.1 Phillip Lim and more, but still beautifully made and very affordable. I am captivated by a super soft cream lambskin leather biker jacket and a pair of silk paisley pants in the mens section. By 9:30 am, the doors opened, as did wallets, customers soon flooded the floors. I retreated to pick up my dog who went missing last night (praise God someone found her and sent her to my vet clinic) and to post this for you. I cannot wait to revisit Zara, hopefully the pieces I have set my sights on have not sold out…
And now, I’ve got to figure out an outfit and head to Circa The Prince for a charity luncheon! Food and frivolity, here I come!

[spoiler title=”中文版”] 今天早上你们可能还在睡觉的时候，我去了Zara的开幕。这个著名的西班牙牌在澳洲已有四家店. Chadstone 的店最像纽约新开的，很宽广，明亮，衣服款式也很多。你们还记得墨尔本城里Zara的开幕吗？走进店里我看到许多模仿名牌的衣服，好像由 Acne, Balenciaga, Balmain, Celine, Chanel, Chloe, Givenchy, Isabel Marant , 3.1 Phillip Lim等 这些设计师启发的。当然Zara的价格优越地多，质量也不错。我特别爱上了一件乳白色的皮夹克和一条男装的真丝裤子。早上九点半大门打开，钱包也敞开，顾客来得不停。我悄悄地撤退去接我迷失的狗狗（感谢神垂听祷告，她被寻回），然后回家为你们写这篇博客。我好想回去Zara但现在我得去一个特别的午餐！[/spoiler]
