I immediately fell in love with these chocolate leather shorts from Zara, but regrettably refrained from purchasing it for the following reasons:
1. Poor Sizing: It comes in only two sizes: small and medium, and the small fits like a large or an extra large.
2. No Belt: It doesn't come with the belt in the photo, nor could it be found in the belt section.
3. Fit: After thinking that maybe it only needs a belt to give that "paper bag" effect, I realized it looked terrible no matter how I styled/wore it. I could be wearing a potato sack (and yes, I did see the Project Runway episode about potato sacks) and look less ridiculous.
Alas...if anyone knows of a better fitting alternative, I'm all ears.
