As I mentioned in my “I shopped til I dropped” post, I had the opportunity to select 3 items from Express during their Eaton Center Grand Opening Event. In today’s post I’ll be revealing 2 of my 3 picks!
My first choice won’t come as any surprise as it’s been on my wishlist for a while: The Iridescent Sequin Tulip Back Tank in Nude Blush. Shimmery, festive and in my favorite color – it’s perfect for the holiday season!

Sequins are VERY popular right now, and I knew I would get a lot of wear out of this top – it’s so versatile! I’ve already put together outfits based on it for 3 different occasions:
Casual – I’ve toned down the sequins by pairing it with a charcoal grey cardigan, faded jeans & my new Hunter rainboots.
Cocktail – You may have seen this outfit in my previous post, as I wore it to the L’Oreal Holiday Cocktail Party. I amped up the sparkles by pairing it with a gold sequined shrug and faux-pearl necklace. I also wore black skinnies and gold sandals (although I wish I had some metallic heels instead!)
Work – I paired the sequin top with a classic white shirt, black editor pants & loafers. Of course this may not be appropriate for all work environments – but perhaps it would be a good choice for the office party.
My Cocktail party picture also featured my 2nd Express pick: The Colorblock Satchel. There are so many things I love about this bag – including the workmanship, material, color and size. I can see it being the only bag I use in December! It looks elegant yet is so spacious – for the L’Oreal party I was able to fit in our BIG camera AND a spare change of shoes, along with my makeup bag/wallet/phone etc. In the coming weeks I have several holiday parties to attend with my children – this bag will be able to accomodate all the extras I’ll be carrying!
