Fab Finds: Bright Colors at Express

I loved shopping at Express in college, but these days they've gotten so pricey.  I really only go when I have gift cards (I fill out online surveys and redeem them for Express gift cards) and coupons.  They're having a big clearance sale right now, as well.

I like {this dress} because it's so bright - a huge departure from my usual array of gray, black, dark green, navy, etc.  Plus it actually fits both my hips and waist; that never happens unless I shop at Karen Millen.  The top is photographing really orange, but it's much more of a bright coral color.  With their sales and clearance, my coupons, and my gift cards, I ended up paying $50 for $213 of retail product.  Not too bad, eh?  I also bought {this sweater} in ivory and {this sequin top} in ivory.


Please excuse my "I just had dance rehearsal for 5 hours - lemme throw this mess into a pony tail" hair and make-up.
Dress: Express {here}

Um ok, you look freaking outstanding in this dress!!! Holy smokes! I love the bright colorblocking, these dresses remind me of what Gucci did for Spring. Too hot girlie!!

Thanks Andi! I just googled the Gucci spring '11 and you're right, it's totally inspired!

I love that dress. I was eyeing those on the Express coupon I got in the mail. Maybe that's what I'll get with it. You look great and I love the nude shoes.
