While I've been a bit unimpressed with Zara's offerings lately, I still find myself regularly reaching for some old favorites: the double-sided plaid scarf that was sold out and knocked off last season and the cross-strap pumps that made the rounds a couple of years ago. The best part is that they're both so completely timeless; plaid will never go out of style and you can never have too many pairs of beautiful black pumps. As a semi-serious consumer of fashion, it can be difficult to think beyond the current trends, but lately I'm trying to remind myself to be more thoughtful about purchases and to take longevity into consideration.
