So a Zara recently opened at Burnside Village and I thought I would check it out. The store apparently is modelled after the Fifth Avenue store in New York, I thought it reminded me a lot of the Zara store in Seoul so I guess all the stores are pretty uniform around the world? But the one here is nowhere near the scale of the store in Seoul, a lot of the stores like Zara, H&M, Forever 21 etc. in Seoul and Tokyo have a million levels (well.... more like 4 but you get the point) and the one here is only 2 levels with most of the top level for kids.
There was a security guard all suited-up to greet us at the door which made me laugh because I remembered that a friend told me that at the store opening they had all this security and a roped off area for a line up but there was no-one!! AHAHA I think they were expecting a huge line-up because the store in Melbourne often has a line-up to get into the store but we're a little more chill here Zara......
I tried to take some photos in the store but a shop assistant stopped me :( I'm not sure why you're not allowed to take photos in store but I was a little miffed -_- so here are the only two photos I could take ninja style.....
|I want metallic jeans sooo much!! Beam me up Scotty!!!|
I can tell that Burnside Village is targeted towards the people with more "ability" aka the super rich peeps with shit loads of cash to burn.... with all the boutiques like Mimco and Oroton. So I saw heaps of fabulous middle-aged women, or what I like to call them sammonims (a korean term for powerful rich ladies), and their husbands (wallet) walking around.
After my sister took me to The Aviary dessert bar because she kept on raving on about the ice-cream. While we were driving there she made me ring up and make a booking ( the dude on the other end was extra cheerful and peppy which was nice ^^) for a table in ten minutes because there may be a line up..... when we got there there was no-one, we had a little "Zara" moment...... The boy who served us (and answered the phone from before) was cute as a button and my sister told me there was another friendly dude that served her the other night and I thought is the Aviary a dessert version of to the Flower Boy Ramyun Shop, have my prayers been answered?? and if so where is my Cha Chi Soo??!!! ( a korean drama reference..... basically a store that employs super good-looking dudes yummy!)
|The decor is so adorable!|
|Ordered a mango fruit fizz and a raspberry fruit fizz with little lychee jellies at the bottom, so yum!!|
My sister ordered an asian sundae with lychee and coconut ice-cream and I ordered an asian sundae with mango and lime ice-cream. There was grass jelly at the bottom which I absolutely luuuurvvveee nom nom!! Just a warning, the lime sorbet is super duper ultra megaly sour!! >o< Yeah... I wouldn't order the lime sorbet again...... but the rest was delish!
|My asian sundae NOM NOM!! (minus the lime sorbet)|
And finally my OOTD! When I was waiting for a change room in the thrift store, a girl came out wearing this dress to show her mum and I was in love!! I had my fingers crossed hoping that she wouldn't like it and guess what??!! she didn't!! ( well, obviously coz I'm wearing now and not her). Thank god for mothers and their overpowering opinions! When she finished I followed her around the thrift store like 007 on a mission and watched her put it back on the rack and walk away and snatched the sucker! MWAHAHAHAHAHA...... why do I always seem like such a ruthless ninja when I go thrifting?!
