It’s always good to have an idea of what you are looking for or what you would like to buy before going shopping. It helps you stay on task during your shopping trip and, if you stick to your list, not overspend.
On Friday I will be attending a “New Year New You” event at TJ Maxx/Marshalls.
As not to become overwhelmed with all TJMaxx/Marshalls has to offer (I always find the cutest pieces for the “low,” like my nude Franco Sarto pumps) I thought I would make a pre-shopping list. So, during the TJ Maxx & Marshalls blogger event I plan to focus on finding the following…
1. B. Makowsky Handbag
I absolutely LOVE this line of handbags. Their leather quality and hardware are to die for! B. Makowsky is actually a designer line that normally retails for around $150.00-$300.00 . However I have seen them priced from $99.00 – $199.00 at TJMaxx & Marshalls.
I wouldn’t mind investing in a nice quality bag for the new year. So, the Makowsky is at the top of my list. Below are a few of the colors and styles I like.
2. Wide Leg Jeans
I have enough pairs of skinny leg jeans to last me a lifetime. I need a well tailored pair of wide leg jeans. Specifically, a pair that’s long enough for me to wear a high heel. I don’t have a particular brand in mind so any designer is up for grabs.
3. Framed Mirror
Ok, so this isn’t exactly fashion but, I am itching for a large framed mirror for my living room. Since both stores sell housewares I might as well take a peek and see what I find.
4. Colored Leather Gloves
It’s getting much cooler in Atlanta and I am in need of a pair of quality gloves. As a child I remember my Mother owning a pair of hunter green gloves. For some reason I thought, and still do think, they were the chicest gloves I had even seen. So, I must have a pair! But, any color will do. Check out my favorite hues below.
So that rounds out my pre-shopping list for Friday. I can’t wait to see what I actually buy! I have my fingers crossed for the Makowsky, but we will see.
