Slipping into the fall season in Style with Zara

I'm mad about Zara, one of the world's largest international fashion companies. Their clothes are functional, fashionable and range from classic to trendy, to boho to mod - truly versatile. I happen to like them because they're affordable, high quality and work well when worn with higher end brands. I discovered the company quite by accident a few years ago in Greenwich, Connecticut after a meeting with clients. With some time to kill I strolled down the Avenue. The windows were quite inviting, and so I walked in. I was amazed at the selection, the prices and the quality of the garments. (I've been to other so-called inexpensive brand stores and am always disappointed with the fabric.) I had amassed quite a few items. And it turns out that because I was "saving money" I may have actually gone a wee bit overboard! I've been back several times since and am always pleased with the choices, prices and how well the items hold up. And so this fall, like every other fall, I'm looking to add a few transitional pieces to add to my wardrobe that won't break the bank. I'd like to be able to wear these pieces on warmer, as well cooler days, I need them to go with my existing wardrobe and I need them to be versatile - pieces that I can wear while working as well as during the evening. For these and many, many more visit Zara's website.
