If you have a weak stomach, don’t read on because this story is gross AF.

Back in July, 24-year-old Cailey Fiesel bought two dresses from a Zara store in Connecticut, unaware as to what was about to happen.

She wore one of the dresses to work a few weeks later, and started to notice a strong smell – seemingly coming from the dress.

The Manhattan Supreme Court lawsuit that she’s filed reads: “While at work, she started to notice a disturbingly pungent odor and was unable to identify the source. Despite getting up from her desk and walking around, she was unable to escape this 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.” VOM!!!

IT WASN’T STRING IT WAS THE LEG OF THE DEAD MOUSE. AND THE REST OF IT WAS TRAPPED INSIDE THE FABRIC. AGHHH!

“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.”

“Ms. Fiesel jumped out of her chair in shock…[sic]. After removing the dress she found that a dead rodent was sewn into the hem.”

The court papers include photos of the dress, “conspicuously depicting the dead rodent with at least one of its appendages protruding.”

Cailey is suing for unspecified damages for the emotional distress the incident caused, as well as physical damages from the huge rash from a “rodent-born disease” which she was diagnosed with afterwards.

The lawsuit also stated: “Zara breached its duty to exercise reasonable care in designing, manufacturing, inspecting, distributing, delivering, supplying, inspecting, and/or selling its products by negligently releasing into the marketplace a product that was defective by containing disease-causing rodents.”

According to TMZ, a spokesperson for Zara said: “Zara USA is aware of the suit, and we are investigating the matter further.

“Zara USA has stringent health and safety standards, and we are committed to ensuring that all of our products meet these rigorous requirements.”

Officially scarred for life.
