So I went to return the skirt at the store yesterday, but of course picked up a bunch of other stuff! Dammit, that wasn't supposed to happen. But oh well. They were cheap. However, Express just started 50% off every single item in store and online today! Why did I buy a bunch of stuff yesterday?! Ugh. I might go see if I can get price adjustment.
So I picked up another mini skirt, at 50% off yesterday. You know, I love Express mini skirts. I find them to fit really well and the styles are very nice. One of my favorites is the leather quilted mini skirt. Since I bought that skirt, they have come out with a few more that are the same style but different fabrics. I always liked this plaid print, so when I saw that it was 50% off, I bought it right away, without trying it on because I'm lazy. The Zippered Boucle Plaid Mini Skirt - $24.95 - great price!
So the only size on the smaller end that the store had in this skirt was a size 2, so that is what I got, even though my leather one is size 0. I tried it on after I got home. At first I thought it would be totally fine since I don't need it to be tight anyway. But I think either the seams are made really badly, or it's just too big around the hips for me, because it puckers on both sides and does not lay flat. I don't like it. The waist fits well though. So I might go to another store this weekend and see if I can find it in a size 0 to try on (or maybe a different size 2 that is made better?). Otherwise I think I might have to return it. :(
I got it in size XS. Here it is on me. Not sure if you can tell, but this shirt is slightly see-through. I am wearing a bright colored bra under it.
Since I loved this shirt a lot, I decided to get 2 more. Only $17 each now, so why not. Even the full price of $34 for these shirts is very reasonable I think. I got one in bright salmon, and another one that is actually the Striped version of it, in light gray and white stripes. I got these two both in size XS as well, but the striped one fits noticeably looser than the salmon one. The salmon one is also a lot brighter in person than online. I like it better actually.
I think this is pretty true to how the color looks in person:
Ok, this next item I got is so great, I highly recommend it lol. It's the Metallic Pointelle Knit Layering tee. I paid full price for it, which is $29. But it's only $14 now! I think I'll go return it and then buy it right back. I don't know why it's classified as a "tee", because it looks and feels like a thin sweater to me. I think the color I got is soft ivory. But it looks like a really light gray/silver to me in person. The material has sheen.
This is also size XS. Looked very small when it was hanging up, but it is not tight on. I really like the fit and feel of this top.
It's like a mesh overlay though, so you definitely have to wear a tank under. I think it would look awesome with bright colored tanks under it. But I am just wearing white here:
I'm seriously, buy it right now.
The last item I got at the store was this lace tank that I cannot find online. So I don't know the name of it. It was 50% off, and regular price was $49 so it was $24ish. It is kind of weird though. They only had size XS and M left, so I went with the XS. I think I might like it better in a S. I'll have to go and see if I can find one at another store to try on. Otherwise I'll save my money and return it. It just fits kind of weird and unflattering, and the front cross-over part dips very low so you have to wear a tank under it. I think the lace over looks very nice and well-made in this tank, too bad it makes me look fat lol.
Anyways, I am really itching to get to the store and see what else they have! 50% off everything really is a great deal. I actually bought more things online already but they won't get here till next week. Check this out... I got these camo leggings and they are only $17! I've never tried Express leggings, I wonder if I can wear them to workout in? That'd be awesome. I would hem them into crops if that is the case.
How awesome is that? I hope this one fits, can't wait to get it!
