Zara's iPad app Zara+Connect! is the cherry on top of their recently launched e-commerce site. Basically, once you download the app, you can invite a friend by entering their email, and from there, you'll be able to video chat, voice chat, or instant message them while you both peruse the pages. Because while online shopping is convenient, it's also a little lonely. Plus, now there's a way to prevent buying something questionable and then seeing your friends' reactions to it, after the fact. To see a video of how it all works, head here.
