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! =)
