Pop-up Shopping

This is a Sponsored post written by me on behalf of Express Canada for SocialSpark. All opinions are 100% mine.

Last Friday TOBeauty reviews and I visited one of the many pop-up closets that Express Canada is hosting to promote the Grand Opening event at the Eaton Centre on November 21st.

You might be wondering what a pop-up closet is....Remember my post about the Express fashion show - and how I lined up at the bar - but realized it wasn't a bar but a place where they were giving away free Express clothes? Well - that was a pop-up closet!
Pop-up closets: At the fashion show on the left,AMC Dundas on the right.
Pop-up closets are open to EVERYBODY - and anybody who visits one has the opportunity to win free Express clothes or gift cards!!! Future pop-up closet locations are:
  • Thursday, November 15 (11:00 to 15:00): Dundas Square
  • Friday, November 23 - Sunday, November 25 (11:00 to 15:00): Eaton Centre (Level 1 across from MAC) 
I received Editor Pants at the fashion show pop-up and a giftcard at the AMC pop-up...you should definitely check out a pop-up and see what you win! You also have until November 19 to win a $1000 Express shopping spree (contest entry form).

While at the pop-up closet, I got the chance to preview the Express clothes on display - there were so many gorgeous pieces! Here are a few items that I can't wait to check out in stores:

Blush pink & Sparkly with fur accents:


Jewel-toned outerwear & leopard print accessories

And of course: Handbags, handbags, handbags!

I have an HUGE soft spot for Express handbags because my first "grown-up" purchase during my University days was a black satin Express handbag with hot pink lining - it was VERY chic (at the time) and lasted through many nights out. These new bags are SO well made - with fun materials and sophisticated shapes. They would work with a wide range of outfits - wish I could have kept all 3!

Which is your favorite Express bag? Do you plan on visiting one of the pop-ups?

  1. These are all so pretty! I wish we had an Express. We had one for years but then it shut down. What's up with that?

    1. That's a shame - although their online store is great, nothing beats trying on things in person!

    1. I had so much fun too - I wrote about our sushi dinner (and how I was alone with the all-you-can-eat dishes LOL) but took it out because the post was getting too long ;-P I'm so glad I have an Express partner-in-crime! Can't wait to read your post tomorrow.
