What I Got @Zara And Other Stories. My First Major Shopping Haul After Lockdown

As promised here is what I picked up at And Other Stories and Zara. I have not done a major shopping in over a year and a half and have not bought any fast fashion in almost two years except for a hat I bought in January of 2020. I tend to buy a bit more fast fashion in the summer months and I buy things I know I am going to keep for a long time. I hope you enjoy my mini haul here and let me know what is your favorite!


  1. You got some great things! I’m the same – I buy more in the warmer months. It just makes sense, when it’s warm so most of the year here and when it’s cooler it’s easy to layer summer pieces to make them work for colder days! 🙂

    Hope your week is off to a great start 🙂

  2. Kudos for getting out and dealing with the half hour wait in a line at Zara.
    To me, being as reclusive as I am, and what with Covid-19 and other insecurities,
    that seems impressive all by itself.
    I hope you find your light blue denim jacket.
    The new darker one looks nice.
    That cropped orange crocheted sweater looks pretty.
    I love that pretty, airy long-sleeved black dress you got
    from Other Stories featured at 7:19 of the video,
    as well as the red blouse with ruffle details at the shoulders at 9:06.
    Great shopping haul – well done!

  3. Wow! You got such nice outfits. I loved your mini haul

  4. Beautiful picks! I love the black dress and the blazer!

  5. Loving this shopping list. Hope you enjoyed it.
    Lots of Love: Mariann Yip

  8. The white blazer is fabulous! I need to check out Zara again. Haven’t visited since the pandemic!


  9. Such a great shopping haul, I’m sure that trip will be exciting after a long lockdown. The blazer with Chanel buttons is one of my favourites and that red top…really nice haul!

  10. Olá!
    Fiquei sabendo das promoções da zara e mesmo assim achei as peças muito caras para meu bolso mas, tem inspirações de looks maravilhosos.


  11. So excited for you that you got this haul! Such pretty pieces, I especially love the orange cardigan. It’s gorgeous!

    Wishing you the brightest day, my friend!

    1. Thanks hun! It felt good after a year and a half.

  12. How fun that you finally did a shopping trip again! I finally went out shopping last week too!
    I love the orange colour Zara crochet cardigan and a denim jacket is always a good investment!

  13. Great finds!!! Love especially the yellow cardi and the black dress!
    everything’s very stylish!

  14. You scored some super cute pieces! I shopped the sale and picked up a few pairs of wide-leg jeans. Love ’em!

  15. The yellow-orange sweater is adorable with the ruffle sleeves. It’s so cute !
    And I love your red blouse.

  16. me ha encantado este post, gracias

  17. I need you to be my personal shopper. I love what you got. That orange crocheted top is my favorite. I hope you are having a beautiful day full of hope, joy and love.

  18. You got some lovely things in your Zara haul, I’m in love with the classic black blazer, such a useful basic item to have! <3


  19. I liked your shopping! 🙂


  20. A denim jacket is always a must-have! It’s cute and goes with (almost) everything! The red-smocked red top is darling, love the print and sleeves.
    I feel the same way about fast fashion, I try to buy less but what I do buy are garments that are stylish but also good quality (well, as good as you can get at Fast Fashion stores) that I know will last me for a long long while.

    Thanks for sharing your haul, I enjoyed it!

  21. Yes! Zara has so many great pieces out right now. While I don’t enjoy navigating their website, I do love the clothes 🙂



    1. Yeah that is why for many reasons I like shopping in person though that has its down sides too.

  22. Hi Allie
    I buy more in winter because I love to buy coats!! I love the orange cardigan from Zara! The dress from and other stories I like it more in white!


    1. Yes sadly they did not have it in white. And I same still on the hunt for a nap dress!

  23. I’m sure you’ll use the denim jacket a lot!
    Have a great week,

  24. You’ve made me want to go shopping, Allie! I love that blazer too, sale finds are so satisfying xx

  25. What a haul! I am so very jealous because I am lazy and I didn’t buy anything at all!

  26. Love seeing this haul Allie. Makes me want to go shopping too. My favorite pieces is definitely the orange weave top. The sleeves on it are so charming.


  27. I enjoyed that wonderful video! Those items form Zara you got are perfect, and particularly I love that orange cropped top<3
    That shirt you are wearing is from Isabel Marant! I just read your comment about my top from Marant on my blog!


  28. Such a fun mini haul Allie!

    I just came from the blog post where you are wearing the crochet top and I really like how you immediately use it, such a lovely summer look!

    I know that And Other Stories also has really good accessories with nice quality, love the pieces you get there and as far as I know they last longer in comparisson to other brands of the same group. That red shirt is also perfect, looks even more expensive and I’m excited to see you wearing it on the blog!


  29. Eep I love your purchases, especially the denim jacket and blazer – that’s such a staple, and I love your idea of switching out the buttons. Great haul <3

  30. Great haul! Loving the jacket, sorry you misplaced your other one. That can be so frustrating!

  31. I so badly need to go shopping for clothes! I feel like everything is so blah now, I want more colour and more dresses. I do love that black dress you showed that also had a white option, looks so nice.

  32. If I lived near the beach, I would be there after work too. I really thought your Isabel Marant top was a dress! I love it. Great video, Allie! That yellow sweater is my favorite piece in this vid. And I know what you mean about the weather. The DC area is similar with it being either too hot or too cold on most days. Hope you have a lovely weekend!
