SALE Madness At ZARA & My Haul

ZARA Store, Select City Walk Mall, New Delhi, 6th July '12, 17:30 PM (Friday):
The world went silent, except for my own heartbeat. I'd been waiting for this for weeks. Nervousness, fear, annoyance, confusion, and excitement, consumed me all at once as soon as I entered the store & I saw piles of tops on the tables, and some littered on the floor along with a few hangers. It was a battlefield of fabrics & sale-crazed women. Mr.CZ spoke of the long queue at the cash counter, and I pretended not to hear. I walked quicker to my favorite section- TRF, like I always do. It was a little calmer, but nonetheless messy. 
A while later, it was time to go to the main section. As I was confused where to go first (Tops? Coats? What's that mint-colored thing on that rack?), a girl in a black coat said something to me. I couldn't hear her at first (it looks like a dress....skirt?)
"You're Cynthia.", I think that's what she said.
"Yes?", I said, wondering if I went to college with her.
"I read your blog", she explained.
"Oh, hi.....!", I smiled for the first time since I entered the store. We chatted for less than a minute (Hello, Jasinder! :))
Then I was lost in the frenzy again. I was bumped into uncountable times, and I was chanting 'Excuse Me' almost every time I turned. I imagined holding a gun up and yelling "Get out! All of you! Get out!" 
Below are pic of only the TRF section. The main  section is 10 times busier.
I just couldn't shop in that madness! I'd rather go after a few weeks again, when it's peaceful & there are no long queues to the trial rooms & the things I want go much cheaper. I really really liked this one top which was still too expensive, and I hope it waits for me- like that "Zara Dress That Waited For Me" ;)
Sorry to disappoint you - and myself- but all I got was this Pink Fringe Skirt (Rs.1390 from Rs.1990). I didn't even try it, coz I didn't want to wait in the queues. I noticed at home that it had shorts attached inside....
Super cute! And the price is quite good for it, I think. It also goes very well with the Zara Quilted Leather Jacket I got in March (shown here).....

This jacket is available in white too. Price: Rs.3390 from Rs.4790.

Omigosh, I can't imagine how today & tomorrow would be like! :O

TIP: If you plan to go, go very early- opening time, between 11-12.

Happy Saturday & SALE shopping to you all.....

....and let's hope it keeps raining! =)

    1. that's one thing I hate about sales, you can't stay in your zen shopping mood. hate getting bumped in to and touched especially, it ruins my private space and that's enough for me to go raging mad. :)

  5. I caved and went too - to the Mumbai Zara. On Friday morning. Took my whole team too, since they all wanted to go and I didn't want them making excuses to head to the mall in the middle of the day. I fared well, I think - three dresses for Rs 6,000. They're all so pretty.
    Tips: Zara goes on sale in Jan and July. Go before the sale begins, try 10-20 items that you like and figure out your fit and size, including shoes. Make note of what's available in several colours. Then, when sale begins, go early in the sale and early in the day. With luck, 5-6 of the items you tried will be available in your size. If the price is right, go straight to the cash counter!
    Remember that they let you exchange discounted items too - within a week, I think.

    1. Hey, that's a super awesome tip! How I never thought of it myself I'll never know! Next time I'll do that for sure

      Yes, 6k for 3 dress is pretty good. It must have been so fun to shop with the whole team :)

I ♥ finding little notes in my Vanity Case, so do drop one. I read all of them & I try my best to reply to each & every one of them [check back in 2-3 days =D] but most times it's physically impossible! Either way, I love to hear from you & really appreciate you taking the time out to share your thoughts <3

Thank you for reading! :)
