I got this Tweed Studio Stretch Corset Pencil Skirt for work. It looks pretty short on the model, but it is right above the knees on me, which is a good length for work. It's super comfortable, and fits perfectly in size 2 - I am always a size 2 in Express suit skirts. I like the cute corset detail in the front of the skirt, but it is purely decorative. The color of the skirt is great, I've been wanting to get a grayish colored skirt for a while but haven't seen one I liked in the right price range (hate spending a lot on work clothes) until now - this one was only $19! Original price was $69.
So I'm keeping that skirt for sure. And I'm also keeping this Diagonal Striped Knit Mini skirt - this was only $9, and it will be casual going out wear. I also got it in a size 2, and it fits looser than the pencil skirts. The material is also stretchy. I think I could get away with a size 0 as well, but that could easily turn hooch. So I'm happy with the size 2. This is an easy skirt to pair with just about any top. It's not too short, and I could wear heels or boots with it as well. And come on... 9 bucks down from $49!!!
I really like the color of these Stella Coated Jean Jegging in Black Glitter. But I got them in size 2, which is the same size as my other pair of Stella jeggings from Express that happen to fit perfectly, and these are too tight! Ugh!! So annoying. They are like on the edge of being too tight around the waist and being able to pull them off. I don't want muffin top, obviously, but they are so darn cute that I don't want to return them! The glitter is very subtle on the jeans (which feel more like pant material than jeans to be honest), and just gives them a little bit extra than plain black. Maybe I'll try to lose a few pounds lol. But I've made the mistake of "buying clothes too small in the hope of fitting into them one day" in the past and that had never worked out for me. These were originally selling for $118, and I got them for only $19... such a good deal! Another reason I am hesitant to return them. Sigh...
The last thing I got I will no doubt return it. It is the Clip Dot 2-in-1 Dress in radiant rose.
This dress is the same style as my Color Block 2-in-1 Dress from Express, which I have in a size S and it is a bit loose.
So since the Clip Dot had only a size XS left when I bought it, I figured it would be ok. But it is definitely too tight. It was really hard to even put on - it's pullover style. The top is not stretchy at all, so I had to wrestle with it to get it on. After I put it on, it didn't look too small, but didn't look that great at all. The top is loose fitting but I'd prefer it to be even looser for sure. This one was also only $19, down from $79. But I know for sure I will not wear this, so better save my $19.
