Dressing Room Diary: EXPRESS

UPDATE: There is a 50% OFF SALE right now + FREE SHIPPING over $50!

Everything is 40% OFF today at Express so I wanted to share some great sweaters + dresses that I tried on recently.   Because I typically want several things from Express, I try to only shop there when they’re having a good sale so I can save!  I love the quality of every single thing I purchased there recently and I have been smitten over all of the unique sweaters and tops they have!  The statement sleeves on this red ruffle sweater are amazing!!

They also have a LOT of cute tops and dress options for the holidays right now; it was so hard to narrow down what I wanted to purchase.  I literally loved every single thing I put on.   If you’ve had your eye on something and/or have been looking for some cute wardrobe options for fall and winter, I would definitely take advantage of their 40% OFF SALE!

SIZING REFERENCE:  I typically wear an xs in their sweaters unless it’s a sweater that I want to be longer and, in that case, I size up for more length.  I wear a size 0 in their dresses.

Also, THIS sweater that I’ve shown on Instagram(here) is one of my favorite sweaters EVER so I wanted to re-share since it’s part of their sale (wearing an xs).  I also love this one that I’ve shown HERE (wearing size small).



ONE: This is SO soft!!

TWO: This can also be worn off-shoulders as seen online.

THREE: I LOVE how they style this with a skirt online.

FOUR:  This sweater is PERFECT for the holidays! I LOVE IT! Also comes in other colors!

FIVE: This sweater has THE cutest lace up back!



SIX:  I reallllly like this sweater!

SEVEN:  I love that this one can easily be dressed up or down!  Great for work of even with leggings and uggs!

EIGHT: This one is PERFECT to pair with your Spanx Faux Leather Leggings and tall black boots! *whistles*

NINE: I think this dress would be flattering on any body type.  Would also be cute with a fun shoe, maybe leopard booties or a bold pump!

TEN: Hellllooooo, holiday party!  This would be perfect for your Christmas cocktail party or even NYE!  Also love THIS one!

Eleven: The red dress shown from the video.

Items not from Express: Jeans and black ankle booties
