When I came across the same sold-out Zara sweater twice in one day, I couldn't help but take it as a sign. It started with our social media editor, Mimi, a bonafide Zara expert, who wore a cute pink-and-blue cardigan to work and instantly received a slew of questions about it at the office. Then, as I was scanning through photos to write our Oslo Fashion Week street style coverage, I spotted it again: the same perfect Zara sweater. So obviously I felt the sudden urge to own it ASAP.
The fashion gods, however, were not on my side: The sweater is from Zara's sale section and is completely sold out. And it's no wonder: With a $23 price tag (marked down from $70), it's the ultimate thrifty find. While I anxiously call my local stores to see if there are any left, this street style look from Oslo will have to tide me over. I'm taking notes on the polka-dot blouse, straw bag, and metallic ankle boots for my next online shopping haul. Read on to see the sweater in question.
We'll cross our fingers for a restock soon.
