Over 75 fashion influencers, bloggers, models, and media gathered at the swanky South Beach hot spot, the Rec Room at The Gale Miami, for the Express Wrap-Up Party. Obviously, guests were dressed to kill, many rocking the looks from the Express Spring Collection. We eyed lots of breezy floral dresses, nautical looks, sexy short sequined skirts, and studded tops straight out of the pages of the latest catalogue (yup, you can score the looks you see here right now in stores).

The Rec Room was the perfect setting for such an intimate gathering. The dimly-lit lounge had a distinct ’80s flair, and attendees had a blast rummaging through relics from the decade like old Bananarama and Ghostbusters records, a Kermit the Frog lunchbox, a Mickey Mouse rotary phone (remember those?!), and old-school wrestling figures. When guests weren’t chatting or snapping pictures, they were dancing to a mix of tunes, from hip hop to  classic rock. It was definitely a fashionable fete to remember.

Over 75 fashion influencers, bloggers, models and media gathered at South Beach hot spot, the Rec Room at The Gale Miami, for Express' Spring Break Wrap Up Party.

Bloggers Tatiana Torres, of Furormoda, Daniela Ramirez, of Nany's Klozet, and Steffy Kuncman, of Steffy's Pros and Cons, turned up for the festivities.

Here are some members of the awesome Express team in the Spring Collection. Aren’t their flowy floral dresses and sequin numbers ideal for the season?

These adorable koozies were the perfect party favor to cover drinks!

Several Style Bloggers, such as Jana Rose Carrero (pictured left), of OJ & Cigs, came rocking the latest looks from the Express' Spring Collection. I love this high-waist pleated ponte skirt and this color-blocked peplum top—both versatile enough to rock during the day and at night.
