The Dealfinder



I’m really lucky that I not only have the best in-laws, but that they also live near what I think this the most amazing T.J. Maxx around.  And trust me, I’ve scoured the racks of a lot of T.J. Maxx stores.  The one near their home in New Jersey is worth a pilgrimage with it’s wall (like really, an entire wall) of designer shoes, a case of purses (even still-in-stores Fendi totes!), and a huge Runway section.  I don’t know why I’m telling you all this since I don’t really want to share my mecca of designer deals.  I guess I’m feeling extra generous lately.  But for those of you who can’t dedicate a weekend or a small vacation to visiting my store, you’ll be absolutely thrilled to find out that T.J. Maxx is back in the online retail game!  I don’t know if this is the best or worst thing to happen to me (I’m thinking best for me, worst for my monthly shopping budget).  Here are a few of my favorites available now.

A Dash of Leopard






It’s officially feeling like fall here in the northeast and I couldn’t be more excited since this means that it’s time to layer on the scarfs!  It is so easy to make an outfit look stylish when you have a fabulous scarf to put on.  And a huge bonus: when you have a baby (especially a messy one-year-old) it’s amazing to have something that can cover whatever may have been smeared all over you on accident.

I found this gorgeous scarf at T.J. Maxx.  It was the perfect size and weight for a layering scarf and also the most stylish animal print.  I’ve been on the hunt for the perfect animal print scarf after my friend sashayed into dinner wearing her Louis Vuitton version that I knew I couldn’t afford.  It’s been a couple of years on the hunt, but I finally found mine!

Pear Shaped Pointer: Check behind the jewelry counter at T.J. Maxx for designer goods.  That’s where I found this scarf (for a mere $39.99) as well as a Saint Laurent bag that I’m still trying to convince my husband to buy me.  I was astonished by the amount of designer wares at the T.J. Maxx by my in laws.  To note, this is not sponsored by T.J. Maxx (but if the PR team behind the company is reading, get in touch!!)
