I absolutely love dressing up and Express has the perfect pieces for every occasion whether you’re shopping for yourself or gifts for your loved ones!

It is super versatile. IMG_5758IMG_5763I dressed up this velvet jumpsuit and gave it some shine with this long sparkly necklace, rose gold metallic clutch, and large rhinestone earrings.
