T.J. Maxx Summer Clearance Haul

Hi friends! T.J. Maxx has a summer clearance event going on and I wanted to share with you my haul in case you were thinking about skipping it or maybe even not aware of it. I urge you, if there is a T.J. Maxx located anywhere in your vicinity you definitely need to hit it up.  I know everyone’s fashion taste and style is not the same but they definitely have something for everyone and with these amazing prices, you just may pick up an item or two out of your comfort zone. Here’s what I bought.:)

Tahari Abital Maxi Dress in Black with a Regular Retail Price of $158.00.  My T.J. Maxx price clearance price $20.00.  (savings of $138.00 on a Tahari dress) Can you say major score!!!! You really can’t see all of the front detail and draping in this pic, but when I wear it, you will see,  it is super cute.:)

Façonnable White Pinstripe Pants original price of $225 and not only are they super long enough for me, I only paid…are you ready for it….$15.00 at T.J. Maxx!

Premise Allude Print Tank, Manufacturer’s Suggested Price $58.00.  My T.J. Maxx clearance price was only $10.00.  I was drawn to the colors and splattered paint print.  I can see myself wearing this tank with my peach cropped skinny jeans or gray cropped skinny jeans or even my ivory trousers.  Love the options! :)

Theory Derona Sleeveless Blouse Regular Retail Price of $200.00.  My T.J. Maxx clearance price $39.00. If you know Theory, you know they are known for their quality. The tailoring is perfection and the style of this blouse is timeless, so definitely a win-win!

Lauren Ralph Lauren Cropped Orange Pants Mfr’s Sugg Retail Price $89.50 and my T.J. Maxx clearance price was $20.00.  I love the bold orange color of these pants.  I have been looking for some bright-colored crop pants and I spotted these in a size 8 and as I turned the corner to get to the larger sizes of the rack I was elated to see a pair in my size.  Now side note these are not tall sized so I know they are not supposed to be cropped pants, more like ankle pants on the average woman but this tall girl will be rocking them as perfectly fitting cropped pants. ;)

Cynthia Rowley Linen Tank, it did not have the original tag on it, so I don’t know how much I saved, but I can tell you I only paid $13.00, so I was a happy camper. The detail on the front and gold snaps at the shoulder drew me to this tank.  Then to see that it was Cynthia Rowley and only $13.00.  I could not leave it behind.:)

Ralph Lauren Black Label Silver Metallic Knit Tank.  I will just let the next photo explain why yours truly, was doing her happy dance all up in T.J. Maxx…lol

No your eyes are not deceiving you.  Because this gorgeous silver metallic knit tank is Black Label Ralph Lauren the original price was $398.00 and yours truly only paid $29.00 at T.J. Maxx.  If this amazing deal of all deals,  does not move you to get your bum to your nearest T.J. Maxx, I’m not sure what will.  This alone is why I am now and forever will be a Maxxinista! ;)

Hugs and Happy Shopping,


Step into Fall in Style

I wanted to show you some fabulous shoe picks that go up to larger sizes, to help you “Step into Fall in Style.” As you all know Fall is just around the corner and in preparation, I’ve already started my shoe shopping. You know the big sizes are always the first to go, so you can’t wait until the last-minute. Although to be honest, I normally am waiting around for a sale. But with a couple of pair that caught my eye the price was already right and I didn’t want to take any chances of them not having my size, I am in desperate need of some booties in my closet (made me laugh too, no, not that kind of booty)…lol You’ll see what I’m talking about below.

Celebrity Inspired Look- Olive Green Khaki’s

Yesterday I had a great afternoon with my Hawaii bestie.   She is a beautiful curvy Latina, who stands a little over 5’11 and she embraces her height wonderfully. She loves to say she is 6 feet tall…lol Whenever we are together it is always a good time filled with many stories, laughs and great adventures. Kind of like Oprah and Gail….lol We had a tasty lunch of shrimp parmesan pasta from Ruby Tuesday’s and then she showed me a two-story Ross, that I didn’t know they had on the island.  I found a cute bright coral purse by Nine West that is perfect for Spring and a taupish colored pair of round toe pumps with a 1 1/2″ heel in my size 12.  I couldn’t believe it! I was really happy, rarely have I ever seen a women’s size 12 pair of shoes in Ross and they actually had women’s shoes up to a size 13.  So if you have (ahem) longer feet like I do, and there is a Ross Dress for Less near you make sure you check out their shoe department you just may get lucky. What I wore yesterday was a look inspired by two of my favorite fashionista’s, Victoria Beckham (love her) and Kim Kardashian (love her style). I loved the casual chicness of their looks and hoped I would be able to pull it off too. ;)
