I remember Express being really cool in about 2008. They had the perfect short-shorts with nautical style buttons up the front, the sassiest “going out” tops, dresses for Christmas Dance (that were still appropriate enough so you wouldn’t get kicked out) and the quintessential black mini skirt that I easily wore into my sophomore year of college.
And then, just like that, I forgot about Express. It wasn’t until 2015 that I even ventured back in there in an attempt to find new dress pants. I managed to find a style I loved (and wrote a whole post about them) and discovered their Portofino shirts (an essential for any lady needing business casual blouses!) Since then I occasionally check back in – I did snag this skirt a few years ago & she’s a keeper.
I recently saw this camo jacket on Instagram (NOW 40% OFF YOU LUCKY DEVILS) and decided I had to have it, so I ended up back on Express’s website. And since I loathe paying for shipping, I managed to sneak this faux leather skirt & this slip dress into my cart as well (telling myself I would return them). Clearly I didn’t end up returning them, but it was time to say goodbye to my other faux leather skirt from Forever 21 (circa 2012).
Moral of the story here people – next time you need a camo jacket, a faux leather skirt, or a slip dress – you should check out Express. I have also heard from my tall friends that their jeans are awesome if you need a longer inseam!
PS. (I’ve been eyeing these cute bomber jackets as well).
Have a wonderful day & thanks for reading 🙂
