Ughhh. I am so pissed at Zara! Why do their clothes have to be so flippin’ awesome!?! They’ve been stirring up a lot of controversy lately, like this, and this, and this, and then there was this from a few years ago, and it has me questioning my affections.

I’m having this moral dilemma, I beyond love their clothes. So much, that I am even wearing TWO things from Zara, right now, as I’m typing this, insert my totally annoyed face here!

But, I don’t like their social conscience, or their political correctness (or lack there of). So, I’m asking, what’s a girl to do? What would you do?

In the meantime, here are some fab finds from other “fast fashion” retailers with, I’m praying, better moral compasses.

Here’s to hoping I’ll have the strength to say sayonara to Zara.

  1. I think that if shoppers start demanding better from the company, the company will have no choice but to change their practices. Look at Chipotle. Can’t find pork from famers who sustain a practice they believe in? They don’t have pork in stock. Even McDonalds (ugh) is getting better at sourcing their product because people have demanded it. The clothing industry could be the same if we demand it.

  3. Hi Hallie– I just learned that we’re getting a Zara at Beachwood Place next year. I agree with you about the conflict! Hope all is well, Beth

      Beth – Yep, heard Zara will be in the Saks wing at Beachwood Mall – it is going to make my P.O. status even harder to keep up! I keep hoping an article will surface saying they are not that bad – fingers crossed!
