Quick - to the dressing rooms!

My sister was desperate to get to TJMaxx this weekend (so of course I had to go with her) and we didn't make it there until an hour before closing time. This is probably good for me because I can easily spend three hours in there, walk across the parking lot to the Chili's and have lunch, then go back for more! (Yes, it has been done! Usually when there is Christmas shopping involved.)

With my time constraints, I went first to my favorite area: clearance. I found a bright floral top marked down to $6 and something that might have been a skirt or might have been a dress for $15. Either way, it was reversible, with floral on one side and polka dot on the other.

(sorry for the bad photos, only one more month until I can get the new iPhone!)


Also spotted this charmeuse top reduced to $12, and just for the hell of it, some jeggings for $5.


For some reason, I was drawn to this tie-dye maxi dress. Quite strange since I, 1) Don't think maxi dresses work really well with my height and 2) Really dislike tie-dye. I think it was the hemline that reminds me of my Italy dress that compelled me to try it. It was $20.


Lastly, I grabbed this horizontal stripe top with a beaded neckline. This is a bit out of my stripe comfort zone, since the stripes are a bit wider and more pronounced than I've been going for. It was also $20.


I ended up buying two things. Can you guess which?

I also just noticed I reached 90 followers. Guess I'll have to start thinking about that 100 follower giveaway....

The striped top is absolutely fantastic- the silhouette, the stripes and that beads detailing - and it looks sooo good on you! I liked other stuff too but this top is my absolute favourite:)
P.S. Did you buy it?:)

I hope you went with the striped top. I think it's gorgeous with the embellishments. In fact, I'm yearning to head to TJMaxx after work to search for the same top!

I have to say, I'm also drawn to that tie-dyed dress - I think it is the hemline. I also really liked that striped tank top - v flattering.

I think you got the bright floral top, and the charmeuse one... I need to go to TJ Maxx soon, one of these days

I love all of these items, but the maxi dress drew my attention too! I'm not sure why, since they usually aren't my style, but I'm seriously loving it!

I love the floral shirts and the maxi dress is wonderful! I don't shop much at stores but your finds make me want to go there and get a dress just like yours! but I probably won't because I'm cheaper than cheap hehe

Pia said...

I don't know what you bought, but I love that last striped beaded top and the hemline on the maxi dress is so unique and pretty!!

Robyn said...

Love the reversible piece you picked up. Also, I know it wasn't your favorite, but I absolutely love that tie dye dress on you. It is definitely my favorite from the bunch.

I don't know why, but I love dressing room posts. It's so fun to see what people pick to try on and how it looks on them (and of course, which they end up taking home). I think my favorites are the first and last tanks - they both look fantastic!
