I'm Now a New Maxxinista!


Yup, I have a new addiction. T.J. Maxx & Marshalls. I wish ohh boy do I wish I could buy a pair of Louboutins or a Coach purse without a blink of an eye but I love my lil condo wayy too much to bury myself in debt. It would be so easy to swipe my credit card...maybe one day. However for now I have a mini outlet to buy some nice tops that won't break the bank. I do coupon and save where I can so I can splurge every once in a while on some cute clothes.

Here are my recent finds! 

 Ruffled shirt: $12.99 (Not sure if it's one of those shirts that is "Supposed" to be wrinkled? I'll iron it to see if it looks better)

I wore this to a bar last Friday. Total Success! $13.99

 This top just makes me think of Spring and flowers...I wish the rain would go away! I also bought it in Black! 

I didn't always like these stores because the ones by me were always a mess kinda like the Forever 21 stores in big malls. It's always chaos and VERY hit or miss. The T.J. Maxx by my job tho has some order to it and they actually do get new stuff in each week. =) It's a treat to actually put on something in my size and have it look cute. I'm going back tomorrow to see if can get a bathing suit. Can't wait!

Do you have any these stores by you? What's your view on the Maxxinista craze?

I love that last shirt!! I'm obsessed with Homegoods (part of TJMaxx) but I've been forbidden to go there for awhile, because I spend insane amounts of money.

Ooh, I love the tops you bought - too cute! I have never before been to a Marshall's before. But I visited a TJ Maxx by my house last year and scored this phenomenal pair of boots for less than $25.00, so I'm a fan! :)

TJ Maxx & Marshall's are also really awesome for buying gym clothes. For everyday clothes I just wait until Lands End Canvas has a sale or somesuch.

The english version of TJ Maxx (called TK max) always reminds me of a jumble sale - things are always all over the place. I think its improved over the years though - it's where I somehow managed to get the dress for my wedding from - you can get some brilliant bargains.

Cute finds! I love both those stores, especially Marshall's. Sometimes you can find little gems, like Mark Jacobs dresses or 100% cashmere sweaters for $20. It's awesome, like a treasure hunt!
