Anyways, so here are some of my purchases! Brace yourselves for a long post, ladies!
First of, I bought this Long Convertible Sleeve Blouse in ivory and black piping, and I love love love it! I love it because it works with pants or skirts, tucked in or left out. It's loose fitting without being unflattering. So obviously I bought it in another color - cayman blue.
I actually posted a picture of this in my latest Sunday Funday, where the color is a lot more green. It is how it looks in real life, not this baby blue color from the Express website. Kind of misleading - I was hoping for this blue, but the actual color is nice as well so I kept it. Same as the other shirt, I got it in size XS and it still fits loosely.
In the above pic, I also wore my new Zip Back Studio Stretch Pencil Skirt (too bad it's currently sold out online so there's no link). It's such a nice skirt, and I only paid $29 for it! It actually fits exactly like my High-Waist Studio Stretch Pieced Pencil Skirt. But this one is solid black, with a gold zipper in the back that zips all the way. The zipper goes both ways, so you can adjust how high you want the back slit to be. Pretty cool! I got it in my normal Express pencil skirt size - 2. Here's the picture of it on the model:
I also bought another Long Convertible Sleeve Blouse in this beautiful dark red color called Red Lacquer. It's also sold out online currently. I love this color, but the sleeves in this one fits looser than the other two I have even though it's also a size XS. It's strange, but it doesn't matter too much since the sleeves will always be rolled up how I will wear it.
I got this other casual tee also in Red Lacquer. It's such a gorgeous color. It's called Dolman Graphic Tee - Thrill Of It. It's sooooo soft and comfy on, I love the material a lot. It was also on sale for only $14 so I couldn't pass it up. I love wearing it on weekends with jeans. I got this one in size S and it fits loosely, but I wouldn't size down. It fits me like how it fits the model. I wouldn't want it any tighter.
Another tank I got that is not for work is this Sequin And Lace Stripe Racerback Tank in mist. It was pretty cheap as well at $19, and it is something that can be thrown on quickly to dress up an outfit. I also got this in a size S for a looser fit. It's a pretty long tank, and the back bottom half is lace. I love the colors in this tank.
I got a couple more pairs of Wide Waistband Editor pants, of course! They are the only pants I wear to work, and they are hit or miss. Sometimes you end up with a pair that fits super well, and sometimes not at all. This makes online shopping tough for them, but I typically buy online and return to the store what I don't like. I bought these 2 pairs, both in my regular size of 0.
First pair is the Button Back Wide Waistband Editor Pant, in Oatmeal:
For some reason, these are super flattering, so I'm very happy with them. And I love the cute button details on the back of the waist. I actually also posted a picture of myself in these in last Sunday Funday:
The other pair I bought are the Studio Stretch Wide Waistband Editor Pant in Lt Heather Gray:
These are very cute as well. I love light heathered gray color, and have been looking for a pair for a while. So I'm very happy with these.
I actually bought a 3rd pair, the Wide Contrast Waistband Editor Pant in Gray, but these were horrible. I knew they'd be bad as soon as I put them on, so they already went back to the store. The material was yucky and cheap feeling, and the pair I got had one leg slightly longer than the other!
I also bought FOUR sweater dresses! Lol. I love sweater dresses for the cooler months of the year. I love wearing them with tights and boots, or even just heels. And these dresses are pretty awesome. I got the Mesh Sleeve Metallic Sweater Dress, currently sold out online, but I just saw a bunch of them at the store I went to on Sunday. This dress is so cute! I love the mesh sleeves on a sweater dress, and the back has a gold zipper that goes very low. But you don't need to zip/unzip it at all to put the dress on/off. I bought this dress in size XS, since it was the only size left. The sleeves were a bit tight around the upper arm area when I first put it on, but the body fit perfectly well. But after one wear, the sleeves stretched out a bit and it's completely comfortable now!
So I first bought this black one, liked it a lot, and went back to the store on Sunday and got another one in this beautiful wine color. I think I'm obsessed with this wine color right now. It looks so good! But this one is actually a slightly metallic material. It's very subtle, but very cool. I also got it in a size XS since it was the only size the store had left as well. But this one had a looser fitting arm to begin with so it was never too tight. It might even fit better than the black one! Mesh Sleeve Metallic Sweater Dress:
And then I bought 2 Ruched Sweater Dresses, one in royal purple, and one in aquarium. Both colors are gorgeous! I at first bought the purple one online, in a size S. It fits loosely. So when I was at the store, I tried on the aquarium one in size XS and it was a perfect fit! I wish I hadn't taken off the tags from the purple one and worn it already, otherwise I'd exchange it for a size XS. But oh well, it fits fine. I posted a picture of myself in it from last week as well.
And this is the picture of it on me:
And here is the aquarium one. It's a very pretty blue.
That's some pretty good odds... only a few "No"s out of a bunch of "Yes"s. So I'm pretty happy! Overall I spent something like $320 for all these things I'm keeping. I'd say that's a pretty sweet deal!
