Arrive in Style with Express

I was super excited when I received an e-mail inviting me out to Express’ In Style event. So I immediately called to R.S.V.P and let them know that I was interested in working with a stylist. The look that I wanted them to pull was ‘Holiday Chic’ styles. Now I have yet to attend a real fancy schmancy holiday party, but my fingers are crossed. Express is known to carry fashion that is right on trend, whether it’s casual, work wear, men’s, or a night out. I have found several pieces that I love from Express and if you get the right fit in jeans you become the woman that Ginuwine sang about (maybe that’s pushing it but you get what I mean).  

Express is usually my last resort because I know that I’ll find what I’m looking for, however, the price point is slightly out of my budget for trendy items. This is where being a part of their e-mail list is important. You will be informed of future promotions which can really help the wallet. 

I’ll be the first to admit attending events after work is becoming harder and harder and this day was no different. My excitement had just about dwindled away and I was willing to trade the event for an earlier bedtime lol. Fortunately, I pushed through and reminded myself of some of the blog goals that I’d like to achieve, then I made my way to Pentagon Mall for the shopping festivities. 

Before I reached the store I could already hear the music blasting from the store so I knew I’d be in for a treat. As soon as I entered the store I was greeted by an employee that eagerly told me about the event as well as the promotion and the gift bag I’d receive if I spent a certain amount. I mentioned that I had an appointment with a stylist and he led me on my way. My stylist was Barry, arranged me with 4 different dresses that were sure to turn heads at any Holiday Party. He even brought over a pair of shoes that would go nicely with the outfits.  After trying on all 4 dresses, there were two that semi-fit, yet all screamed for me to get what Ms. Kela Walker would say SNATCHED. I mean, self-esteem is the esteem of yourself and there’s absolutely no way that I felt 100% comfortable (and didn’t want a larger size). Although the dresses didn’t work out, I was able to snag a pic with my stylist Barry and continued shopping the night away.
