My BFF and I Fought Over What to Buy From Zara—Read the Texts

Meet Lauren, Who What Wear's fashion editor and co-founder of The Devils Wear Zara. Lauren is so obsessed with Zara that we started calling her The Zara Scout. Now she's turning the nickname into a franchise so she can regularly share her insider knowledge of the brand, including all her hacks, secrets, and must-haves with you.

So my best friend, Mimi, and I are kind of obsessed with Zara. So much so that we made an entire Instagram account dedicated to the retailer. It's called The Devils Wear Zara—the child we birthed as an outlet for discussing our latest Zara purchases, habits, and more with a hyper-engaged audience who, believe it or not, might be even more obsessed with Zara than we are. For those of you who don't know us, which is probably most of you, we are very dry, sarcastic human beings. It's honestly a shock we have any friends at all due to our offensive and crude sense of humor (please refer to my #MimiMoods highlight on my Instagram for an unfiltered look into our friendship). Don't worry though, as we are nice to strangers and acquaintances because we aren't monsters, but you'll know we really like you if we pester and mock you to no end. I don't know how we got this way, but here we are.

With that said, there isn't a Zara purchase made between the two of us that doesn't involve a discussion first. Whether it be via text, phone call, Slack, email, or Instagram DM, Mimi and I are pretty much always discussing the latest and greatest Zara products and arguing over who gets dibs on what. Since we have pretty similar tastes, these mini arguments happen on the reg, and I thought it would be fun(ny) to share our most recent conversation about the Zara products we're coveting for summer with all of you. Between the ideal pieces for our hypothetical vacations to the accessories everyone else but us thinks are weird, get ready to read our candid conversation on the matter and shop the things we think are the coolest right now.

Want more Zara? We thought so. Check out the coolest summer trends, according to the retailer we're so clearly in love with.
