The Express Barcelona Cami

Within less than 24 hours of watching Michele1218's clothing haul video, I had already purchased, worn and experienced a compulsion to greedily haul more of the featured Express Barcelona Cami. If this isn't a case study in the power of social media as a trigger for shopping then I don't know what is…

Okay it is just a top. It's not going to change your life. However, anyone with a deep rooted appreciation for a quality basic will nod in agreement when I say that staples as versatile as this need to be treasured. I have worn it three times in one week since I got it and it works in any context:

  • Under a blazer for work
  • On it's own with jeans
  • On it's own with shorts
  • On it's own, tucked into a skirt

You get the picture….

Express have this in their permanent line and it is bought out in a multitude of colours. As a white top addict I am very likely to purchase another and would also be open to a black or navy version. They are reversible so you will find combination versions that mix either colours or textures. I mean, basically they are just bloody amazing. I just wish there were Express's in every country so you all had an even shot at getting one - without incurring shipping charges.  If anyone knows of an alternative/cheaper version of this from a global brand like H&M, let us know!

Lipstick: MAC Morange - Link!
Bag: Sophie Hulme - (similar) Link!
Sunglasses: Quay Australia

It is highly likely that every OOTD from this point on will feature a white Barcelona cami…won't that be interesting for us all? ;)


  1. It is! Like the cami!

  2. Is it better than the one from top shop? Also, what kind of bra do you wear with it?

  3. Ah I love this, I'm a cami collector I have so many now it's getting rather ridiculous!

  4. Pretty top. Love the Forever21 necklace. Greetings from Canada. :)


  5. Ha! So awesome. I watched the same video, and made a mental note of definitely picking up that cami after Michele chatted about it in her video too. Now I'm just waiting on a coupon from Express because I am cheap.

  6. Aaah, white tops like that are what makes up 99% of my entire wardrobe...
    Also, this one seems to be a pretty similar alternative from H&M to your beloved top:

    I hope this helps you out a bit?

  10. Oh, my .. the back of the cami is adorable! Not what I expected so yes, this seems like a must have ;-)

  11. I saw this in store. Was contemplating as the price is a bit much for a cami but if you like it than I am sold!

  12. Really cool top! That's all we want from basic pieces, that they're good quality and can be paired with everything!

  13. The barcelona cami is the bomb I have it in so many colors, me and a group of blogger friends are obsessed with it as you can see here http://pinksole.com/2015/03/daily-find-express-barcelona-cami/

  14. I do love a good cami, they just go with everything. This is a beauty!

  15. I have tried these tops and didn't like the quality (fit and fabric). I ended up buying one from Loft which I found to have a much better quality and they are cheaper (U$39) (...plus they where having 50% off when I bought it). Look up Strappy Cami!

    1. Loft is having 50% everything again!!! The cami is $19

  16. Good Day !!
