    Thank you to all the ladies who alerted me to the fact that I am soooo behind the times where Zara locations are concerned! Especially in my native city ha ha. I first heard about them when I studied in Spain which is now more than four years ago and knew that New York City was their first flagship store here but obviously they've long since expanded!
