Alright, I get it…Marshalls, Winners and HomeSense can be a pain to maneuver around, but there is indeed an art to shopping these TJX stores. If you have a whole day to spare then by all means you can browse to your heart’s content. It’s rather daunting having to go up and down the aisle scanning row after row, hoping something will catch your eye. I usually only have this luxury when I’m visiting the US where time is not of the essence. Often times, I go to these stores looking for something in particular. Lately, it has been gold accent pieces for my guest room. I’m constantly on the go, so I don’t always have time nor the luxury to browse as long as I would like. Yesterday was a unique story. I don’t typically go to Marshalls to score high end luxury pieces.
My friend had a yoga class at 6:30 and asked if I wouldn’t mind killing some time with her at Marshall’s before her class.
OMG if you haven’t been to Marshall’s lately, you are missing out! There are many good finds to be had. And have you heard of their Red Carpet Event? The advertisement looks like this. At their last event, they had Valentino’s Rockstud pumps there! I couldn’t help but take a picture. I would have called them mine if they had come in a different colour so the search continues.
You can buy a similar design at DSW. I actually bought a pair when I was in Boston, but when I tried them on at home, the fit wasn’t that great on me so I returned them. I shouldn’t write them off so quickly because they looked beautiful on the other girl next to me who was trying them on. The link I provided was to their Canadian site. Bonus: Boxing week starts early at DSW so it’s an extra 20% off if you shop 2 or more items 🙂
Back to my Marshall’s adventure. You are not going to believe what I scored yesterday – A pair of Christian Louboutin Anjalina 120 studded patent-leather pumps! They were a fraction of the price that it was listed at on: Net-A-Porter (a luxury online store.) And the studs are pretty in both silver and gold.
It was meant to be…my eyes zoned in on them and they were in my exact size 37.5! I was just given a VISA gift card for Christmas so the timing couldn’t have been more perfect. I have a feeling that these will go perfect with my leather jackets, my edgy purse and my ripped jeans;)
