Today I’m channelling my inner Fabulous Fashionista (I hope you all watched Sue Bourne’s wonderful programme last week) with this gorgeous printed kimono jacket (£14.99) geo-print pyjama pants (£14.99) and a floral swirl of a cream top (£14.99). All from TK Maxx.
Reading yesterday’s comments, it seems that some of you find shopping TK Maxx a bit intimidating, so consider the following…
1) Take your time, grab a basket and focus on the categories you are really interested in first, for example jackets or dresses. Find your size and then quietly go through each style, you’ll know what you like and don’t. When you find something you quite like, add it to your basket. Repeat for as long as you can take it (even the most hardened shopper needs a break after and hour or so).
2) When you’ve got a trolley-full, stop and edit. Try things on in the changing rooms and brutally cull anything that doesn’t make you feel fab. The edit is everything when you are surrounded by so much.
3) For anyone who can’t take shopping for more that half an hour, check out the two rails at the end of each long fixtures in the store. Staff pull out edited styles from that day’s delivery and front face these so they are easy to see for what they call the Magpie shopper- those that whizz quickly in to check out what’s new that day.
4) Also, think about shopping online. The journalist Julia Llewellyn, another TK Maxx fan and fellow Barnes resident, recently brought the website to my attention which has done nothing to help the bank balance.
