Thursday October 3rd, marked the Grand Opening party of Express on Madison Avenue hosted by In Style. This location had temporarily been shut down for renovations. Since the Madison Avenue location has been my favorite for quite some time, I was both excited and curious to see its new look. The many contemporary upgrades to the space added to the revitalized vibe. Party goers enjoyed complementary cocktails and tasty hors d’oeuvres. Guests were treated to custom monograming on Express products of their choice. Professional make-up artists were also on hand to provide guests with “desk to dinner” makeovers. As for taking an outfit from the office to happy hour, it’s always important to remember to accessorize. Pieces such as, a statement necklace or a great scarf can dramatically change your look. Additionally, keeping black eyeliner and a flattering lipstick in your purse can also be used to kick your look up a notch after hours.
