Happy Monday! I found this Zara sweater on sale (on their website) around Christmas and ordered a size small. The sweater was loose on the model like it is on me. What arrived was a teeny tiny version and the sleeves didn't even come to my wrists. I exchanged for a size large! This is why I rarely buy Zara - as much as I like it, the sizing is always really off for me (at least they have free shipping and easy returns). I do love the bow on the back. Have a wonderful week.

I love the bow on the back as well, and every time I see someone blogging Zara, I am so thankful I can't fit in their clothes. That would be super dangerous for me!

The back keyhole on the sweater is such a gorgeous detail! I had the same problem with Zara shoes that I ordered...they were HUGE. The sizing was waaay off!

I totally agree with you, Zara is completely a hit or miss in sizing. I always have to try on their pieces before I buy them. Well, this sweater certainly looks fabulous on you. I just love the detail on the back!

I love the back tie as well - I have a very similar sweater from Gap that I was attracted to for the same reason! That fit issue is a big reason I don't order stuff online much - I'm always afraid it's going to come and not fit, and if I had to pay shipping that really irks me!!!
