Hope you all had a wonderful weekend! I wanted to share my experience on my recent trips to Marshalls & T.J. Maxx. Marshalls & T.J. Maxx are both havens for budget fashionistas looking for hot fashion deals on many name brands – Tommy Hilfiger, BCBG Max Azria, Ralph Lauren, Juicy Couture, Ella Moss, Rock & Republic… the list goes on. Plus, there are a ton of clothes with additional markdowns on already low prices so your dollars go even further!
It’s been a while since my last visit to these two places and as usual, I had a blast… there is no such thing as a bad time when it’s shopping time, right? And, oh how much I enjoyed going through rack after rack of tops, jeans, dresses… hunting for my favorite designer fashion at such bargain prices. I find it very therapeutic… while sipping some yummy coffee of course!
T.J. Maxx offers a lovely selection of handbags & apparel. I spent most of my time in the bag section. There were sooo many yummy handbags! I’ve gotten several handbags from TJ in the past and they are all still as good as the first day I purchased them. Here are some of the colorful Kathy Van Zeeland bags.
More name brands on discount at TJ – Rock & Republic, Anne Klein, DKNY Jeans.
A sexy tie-dye dress and a Kenneth Cole trench… all you need now is a pair of hot boots. Are you the next Maxxinista?
Marshall’s had a better selection of shoes compared to TJ. I was particularly impressed with the boots. My favorite fringe/suede boots by Sam Edelman were about 50% less than most other retailers where I’ve seen them! Totally hot.
Handbags at Marshalls. I love the black bags with, studs, fringe, zippers… so rock-chic!
Bought this sassy Kathy Van Zeeland bag for my friend at Marshalls. She loves brown and this one has such a pretty sheen to it. Think I paid like a little over $30.
Ok, I had to get this oh-so-cozy red vintage style coat! It’s the first thing that caught my eyes when I walked into Marshalls… hypnotized… LOL! The big round buttons & flattering A-line shape make this coat fashionably mod. Not bad for a $30 coat! Can’t wait for the weather to get cooler so I can start wearing it with my black boots. From TJ, I scored a black glossy patent bag by Liz Claiborne for $28 (retail $60). I wanted a bag that goes with everything, simple & classy.
This is a no-brainer but crucial, whether it’s a jacket or handbag, be sure to check the overall condition like the stitching, buttons, knicks/scratches and always try them on before you buy. You don’t want to find any defects (if there are any) after you get home.
There is something for everyone at Marshalls & TJ Maxx from trendy handbags to perfect fall jackets. You can score several designer goodies for the price of one expensive item at a department store. Happy Budget Shopping!
