This past Christmas my oldest daughter and I found a love for the clothing retailer Express. Before Christmas I’d never even been in the store. For some reason I’d been sent a coupon and she needed pants for her internship. So, we went shopping.
Oh my gosh, we fell in love with their Editor pants. They fit me like no other slacks have ever fit me. Hello glove, meet my body! I was in heaven! I was jealous, but she got a pair and looked fantastic in them!
I ended up with a black shirt. Really, I couldn’t leave without buying something for myself.
Well, I’ve been trying to slowly add some new clothing to my “wardrobe”. I’m a girl who could live in jeans! Ok, I do live in jeans. I do plan on changing that up a bit. When I met my daughter in the cities we went to the Express store. I’d like to walk out of there with one of everything!I thought it’d be fun to just grab a bunch of clothes and photograph our shopping experience. One thing I’d like to mention is that the photos make me look like I’m about a size 10 (I just don’t photograph well). At Express I wear a 2/4. bwahahaha In real life (other stores) I wear a size 5. Not bad, I know, it just doesn’t reflect in my pictures. =)So, yes, I do adore Express for making me feel like I’m smaller than I am. In the salmon colored shorts, they’re a size 2. ♥♥♥ I also love the length of their pants. I have THE hardest time finding pants that are 5L. I’m 5’8ish and most pants that are “Regular” barely skim my feet. And then I wash them…hey look they’re shorter than the day I bought them.
At Express, their “Regular” are the perfect length for me. I tried on tan Editor pants in 4L and I was swimming in them around the waist and in the length. It’s so nice that they realize not everyone is 5’6 or shorter. I know I can buy them on their website, but honestly, I want to try on clothing for accuracy.
I ended up purchasing the black cardigan the AWESOME guy that works at Express helped me pick out and the jeans I found on the sale rack. And when I say “sale” rack, I mean, I still paid twice what I would normally pay for jeans. Really, how can I pass up jeans that fit me like they were made exactly for my body?
Express, i HEART you!
