This one also has nude lining:
I wish it was a couple inches longer!
I also bought another high waist pintucked pencil skirt. I have this exact style in heather gray, so I got a darker gray this time since it was on sale.
I feel ok about this skirt. It's kind of close in style/color to other pencil skirts I already have. So I'm inclined to return it or exchange it for a different color/item. I already have so many pencil skirts! But it's a nice skirt though. I think I paid $25 for it which is pretty cheap! Got it in size 2 which is the same as my other one:
I like the faux leather trim on top:
The third item I got is definitely a return. It's too bad because I was excited about it! It's a textured stripe sweater dress. I thought it looked nice on the model:
On me though, it is sooooo short! It's almost like a tunic. I got it in size XS, since it was the only size they had left. Maybe a size up would be better, but I can't see it being much longer. So this is a definite no. So sad! I like the pattern too.
This dress would be soooo much cuter if they just added a few inches.
So, that's my unexciting Express order. Hahaha... on the same note, I actually got one thing from the Ann Taylor sale too. Is everybody having an after holiday sale or what? There are so many ways to spend money right now!
I got this Crepe pencil skirt from Ann Taylor, in cherry red. I really liked the shade of red on the online photo. But it is not this nice darker red in person. :( It is more just a regular, brighter red shade, which would be ok if I didn't already have a red Express skirt in the same exact shade and style.
I'm not going to bother returning it though since it was like $20 or something. So I'll just wear it I suppose. This skirt was only available in size 2, and I almost didn't get it since I normally find even Ann Taylor's size 0 to be loose. But I read the reviews which said it ran a whole size smaller. So I took a chance. It really does run small. It fits tighter than some of my size 0 skirts from there, actually.
I have to wear work clothes 5 days a week, so I'm not worried that this skirt won't get any use. I'm just rather disappointed that it isn't what I thought it was going to be! Well, with online shopping, this is bound to happen from time to time, I suppose.
After I return my Express order, I'll have the money back on my gift card, which means I'll be back soon! =P
