Giveaway Winner Announced & Zara Tweed Jackets

Thank you everyone who entered the giveaway. The winner is Brenda K. – please email me ( with your mailing address and your favorite animal (the one you put down on the form). Winner redrawn as the original winner did not contact me.

I will announce the second giveaway tomorrow. Stay tuned.


This tweed jacket is another sale find from Zara – I bought it at first cut as I didn’t think my size would remain at the end. I find shopping Zara sales to be a game of both patience and tenacity – the prices drop continuously until they bottom out or when stock sells out. As Zara does not normally honor price adjustments it’s not (imo) worth the effort to try.

Zara’s summer sale concluded about a week ago when the sale section disappeared from its website. Did you shop that sale?

And for those of you who are in the market for a fall tweed jacket, Zara has some really terrific choices. I recently ordered the studded jacket from the TRF line (not inexpensive at $89.90 but it’s a well made piece).

 And tried on this cute frayed jacket from the Zara Girls’ collection ($49.90).

I am also a fan of this tweed jacket in a longer style – but it was slightly overwhelming on my frame so I passed on it. I did pick up the diamante eagle necklace, which is a departure from my more feminine style but a welcome addition to my closet.

Is tweed on your mind this fall? What are some options you are considering?
