23-Year-Old Found a Dead Mouse in Her Zara Dress

When you go shopping and find the dress of your dreams, there are very few things that you expect to go wrong. You expect that the dress might be a little snug when you get home and try it on, or it doesn’t look as good as you thought. But, one of the things that you typically never worry about, is finding a DEAD MOUSE IN THE LINING OF THE DRESS. 

Yup, you read that right. According to Cosmopolitan, 24-year-old Cailey Fiesel bought two dresses at a Zara in Greewhich, Connecticut and when she wore one of the dresses to work a few weeks later, she found a small surprise scratching her leg. 

A lawsuit that Fiesel has filed against the company says that, “While at work, she started to notice a disturbingly pungent odor. As the day went on, Ms. Fiesel started to notice what felt like a loose string from her dress rubbing against her leg… without giving it much thought she reached down with her hand to try and locate the piece of string that was rubbing against her.” And little did she know that it certainly was not a piece of string. 

“To her utter shock and disbelief, as she ran her hand over the hem of the dress she felt an unusual bulge and suddenly realized that it was not a string that was rubbing against her leg but was instead a leg rubbing against her leg. The leg of a dead rodent that is.” NOPE NOPE NOPE. 

The lawsuit also writes that she finally figured it out “After removing the dress she found that a dead rodent was sewn into the hem.” Although Zara has not responded to the lawsuit directly, they are aware of it according to TMZ. I mean it has gone viral so hopefully they know.. 

Sorry Zara, but I think I am going to spend my paycheck elsewhere thankyouverymuch.
