200th post & I'm a Maxxinista

So who knew I had 200 posts worth of something to say? Well I'm not sure if any of it was actually worth anything but in any case - woohoo 200 posts! Awesome. Hopefully there will be many more to come.

I've been to TJ Maxx twice this week...can we say obsessed? I didn't even to go Target...oh wait, yea I went on Monday. But seriously...I've been hitting the jackpot lately at TJ Maxx. That place is usually hit or miss for me. I'm not really one to rummage through racks for hours trying to find the perfect deal. I sort of just let them find me. Here's a few things I've picked up this week. I am officially a Maxxinista you guys.

Cynthia Rowley Pillowcases - $6.99 (Reg $12.00)
These totally don't match the sheets I currently have but I loved the Tiffany blue color of these pillowcases.

Nautica Polo - $10.00 (Reg $34.50, marked down to $19.99)
I loved the color of this polo and the little pink sailboat and stripe detail. So preppy.

Nine West wallet - $12.99 (Reg $39.99)
I saw this wallet and a Kenneth Cole wallet the first day I went. I couldn't decide between the two so I left them and decided to come back later. I didn't see the KC one today. I think I was leaning more towards the NW one anyway so it worked out.

Oh. My. Gosh. I love these shoes! I never have luck with shoes at TJ Maxx. They hardly ever have really cute shoes in my size (7.5) and when they do they're still kind of "expensive" in my opinion. I saw these and knew they had to be mine. I didn't see them in 7.5 so I tried the 7 and couldn't even put them on. So I tried the 8 and it fit comfortably. I don't think I'll have any slipping issues but I figure if  I do I can always buy insoles which I'll probably do anyway. I'm wearing these to a wedding a  couple months and they're not going to feel that great after 4 hours of dancing. Oh and when I went today I saw a 7.5 mixed in with the clearance section. grrrr. They weren't actually on sale just misplaced. But still. 

Tommy Hilfiger purse - $29.99 (Reg $75.00, marked down to $50.00)
Purses are something else I never seem to have luck with at TJ's. Same deal as with the shoes - when I do find something it still seems too expensive especially when I've never even heard of most of the brands I see in there. I turned around and saw this purse. I saw it was Tommy Hilfiger and figured it was going to be a little pricey. But then I saw it was under $50 and I was like "MINE!" It's a classic style I've been looking for. I don't even mind the logo; it's not as in your face as Coach or Dooney and Bourke can sometimes be. 

Do you guys ever shop at TJ Maxx? Or Marshall's, Ross, Nordstrom Rack, Burlington Coat Factory? If so, have you found any awesome deals? I'd love to hear (or see; if you have pics!)


  1. I love TJ Maxx and Nordstrom Rack! I totally scored a Tina Turk dress from NR for $30 (which coincidentally is in my current 30 for 30 :P). You got some nice scores there, I'm jealous ;).

  2. I really love the wallet, and those shoes are GORGEOUS!!

  3. Love all those stores! My sister and I always find super cute clothes and great deals at Ross. I'm taking my sister to Vegas next week for her 21st and I found a dress that was $168, but I got it for $40!! Ahh! Gotta love that! I wish I could post pictures in comments because this dress is adorable!
