Picks: My most recent order was mostly unsuccessful but I do have a recommendation for those 5'2 or shorter: the Botanical Print Dress from the kid's department. I'll share pictures of the dress in a separate post but consider it an unusual and interesting piece at a fair price.
Botanical Print Dress
I won't comment at length about the following, I think these pictures speak for themselves and explain well why they were returned. Most Zara kid's pieces are more short adult-unfriendly than you'd expect but I never learn.

  1. Quick question for the Zara kids botanical dress- does it have any stretch or not at all?? Thanks!

    1. There's almost no stretch. I would not recommend it to bustier gals for that reason. The cut is a tapered shift but the length is borderline indecent on me. Hope this helps!

      (would've shared quick snaps here but my phone ate them)

  2. OOOOHH...darn it. I guess that means that Zara kids dress would be too inappropriate for me...

    Did you keep it? I would love to see you style it!

    1. I did keep it! I haven't had a chance to edit pictures yet so it might be another week or two before it shows up on the blog. Will measure the total length and share it here over the weekend. :)

  3. I was totally eyeing that botanical print dress and the anchor striped shirt/dress from Zara Kids! Totally bummed about the length, :(.

    1. Because your legs go for miles, the botanical dress will be more tunic length on you. Which isn't to say you shouldn't get it, just that you'll have to be creative with the styling. :D

  4. Also, the striped shirt/dress isn't too short so it might work for you. The sleeveness dolman design is just unflattering on me. Plus, I have 500000+ striped dresses. :)

  5. Haha, I have totally been eyeing a number of the same pieces from ZARA kids!
