I had ordered the camouflage sexy stretch leggings online:
They arrived and I was happy to find that they fit! I ordered size XS. It actually fits on the loose side. I had never tried on Express leggings before, but I was hoping that the camo leggings could pass for workout tights lol. Well, they are on the thin side for sure, and there's obviously no compression. But I think they totally could work for my upper body weights days. I wouldn't want to wear them doing any squats for sure, due to the thinness. But they are 17 bucks, so I can't complain. The waist goes very very high, but it's thin so it's not especially flattering on the love handle area. They are also quite long and bunch a little at the ankle. I don't mind that at all though.
Not too flattering here... but whatever, tops will cover it:
This is how high they go on the back:
Looks much better with a shirt over:
They are actually quite slimming for the legs, and flattering on the lady part area lol. No camel toe whatsoever, even though there's no gusset.
While I was at the store though, I saw these pleather looking Mesh Inset Scuba Leggings, and I picked them up. They were only $25. They are much thicker than the camo ones, and very much opaque. I got them in the same size, XS, and they fit tighter for sure. But the store didn't have size S left.
I thought these would be fun to wear some time! Not often, probably. Here they are on me:
These are more flattering around the waist since they are tighter:
They look great with boots over:
After I got home, I went online and saw that Express actually carries a version of the Scuba Legging without mesh. I think I like them better and will probably exchange for them instead.
One of my favorite purchases of the day was this Crochet Trim Tee. The color the store had was stone, but they also come in powder and black. This is super cute! Only $25 but the lace doesn't look cheap at all. I love the V-back as well. It runs a little tight, I could probably get away with a S. But they only had XS so that is what I got. Still fits fine.
Here I am wearing it with the pleather leggings... I love the combo of lace and leather! It combines a very soft and feminine piece with something edgy, I love the contrast.
Btw, I didn't get a boob job... I got a really nice bra from Victoria's Secret... LOL! It's the add 2 cups very sexy push-up bra, in red limited edition lace.
Here are both sides on me:
Tuck it in...
And the zipper pull can go around to either side as well... very clever!
I got it in size 2, which seems to be my size in their pencil skirts. I wear size 0 in casual skirts/bottoms, and size 0 in Editor pants. I guess the pencil skirts run small. It's always hard to order these online since I never know what size to order.
It looks a little darker in person, but excuse the red bra under which kind of shows through. :)
Those are the model photos from their website. The blush color definitely looks more blown out than it looks in person. I think it looks more like a pinkish nude in person. Here it is on me:
I would have liked this skirt in black if I didn't already have so many black skirts already. But maybe I should have picked up both for that price! =P I am actually quite happy with this, and will definitely be thinking of ways to pair it.
That's it for now! I hope you all are having a wonderful Christmas Eve, if you celebrate it! I just went out to dinner since I did not want to cook. I think I'll start fasting after this week... LOL! Goodnight!
