Yesterday I was invited by TJX, which is the parent company to Marshalls and TJ Maxx, to preview some of the new spring fashion trends for this upcoming season. I love to shop, and I especially love shopping for clothes & accessories, so I was thrilled that I got an invite to this event, which was held at the Ames Hotel in Boston.
The thing I love about both Marshalls and TJ Maxx is that their prices are unbeatable. The thing about both stores is that they offer the lastest fashions by well known designers at much lower prices than department stores. I think one of the misconceptions that some people have about these particular stores is that because the clothes are discounted, they must be damaged. With TJ Maxx and Marshalls that just simply isn’t the case. They have a team of buyers that are ready and waiting to scoop up the great deals and get them onto the racks at great prices.
I have to say, I have a thing for bags. And shoes. But especially bags. The bag pictured below was the first thing I saw when I entered the room and I just love it. And it’s only $39.99. My birthday isn’t until July, but if anyone sees this in their local store and wants to buy it for me, I will happily take it and put it to very good use.
For me, the one thing I noticed above all else yesterday were the accessories. Whether it was scarves, hats, bags or jewelery……accessorizing is key!
And be still my heart. Look at these colorful bags. I wish I could have one of each. I noticed all sorts of vibrant colors all over the room and I love it. There’s nothing like bright colors to make you stand out in a crowd.
They actually had a bunch of price comparisons set up throughout the room. The top from Marshalls was only $19.99 while the exact same thing was triple that at Nordstrom. The price tags were all still on them so we could see for ourselves that the items truly were exactly the same.
And there’s stuff for the guys, too:
Animal prints are going to be big this season, too. Roar.
There were so many gorgeous things to look at and I totally wished I could have taken one of everything home.
Before we left, Laura from Being Loopy and I tried on some shades:
There were a whole bunch of fashionistas in attendance at the event, but there were also several Boston bloggers & it’s always nice to see familiar faces. I am so inspired to go shopping this weekend and pick up some of the new duds. I saw so many things I liked at this event. The prices really were incredibly low and like I said, I saw so many gorgeous clothing items and accessories, I think I I could easily spend hours in my local store. And I might.
