TK Maxx Haul

After my birthday dinner last month the other half and I went for a wander when I realised I had to attend BBQ of the century for a friends birthday the week after, and with nothing to wear we dashed into TK Maxx to see if they had a garish (it was an Hawaiian theme) shirt I could buy for considerably less than I was prepared to pay (hey, I’m being honest, but I’m not paying £50 for a shirt I’ll never wear again).

What’s that I hear you say?!? “tight wad”, hell yes….

So, with the intention of buying an horrific monstrosity of a shirt I ended up spending £75 and coming away with something of a haul, an entire outfit (sans pants and socks), and a pretty decent looking one if I do say so myself.

And here are the pictures, taken during a trip to feed the ducks at Groveland’s Park in Enfield.

The shirt is from Guide London. I have a few shirts from these people and usually I can pay up to £70 for one. It cost £25, and I rather quite like the uniformed flower pattern. Now, not Hawaiian, but it looks as though I’ve tried and put in a modicum of effort.

The cargo shorts are by French Connection and again I have other shorts like these from FCUK and they set me back upwards of £50 a pair, so paying £20 for these made me smile.

The shoes, well they are from Diesel. I tend to avoid their stuff rather irrationally because I think all of their aftershaves smell like grandpa (about six weeks after he died). Their stuff is usually massively overpriced and of low quality but I think these little numbers may be swaying my opinion. £30, you can’t argue with that.

Really pleased with my outfit and my TK Maxx haul - I would highly recommend a rummage through their racks of clothes, there are some real bargains to be had. Oh, and no PR samples, no sponsorship, I really do love this place to find hidden gems that don’t cost the Earth.

HIGHLY RECOMMENDED

  3. I love TKMaxx, I always find bargains, especially for my other half and daughter. The woman's in my town can be hit and miss. I really like what you chose, especially the shirt!

  4. Can't beat TK Max, but you do need to rummage for sure! Like the shirt!

  5. I think you look really nice in that outfit! Much better to get a lovely shirt that you'll wear again and again rather than a novelty item you'll only wear once! Great choice!

  9. It looks really flowery close up but it quite a subtle print really. People really rate TK Maxx but I have never found anything in there for me

  10. I haven't had a good rummage in TK Maxx for ages although there is always a danger I will come out with another Kipling bag (they are required!) My local one is fairly organized but the one in Kingston is always busy and more akin to fighting for bargains at a jumble sale.

  12. Nice outfit! And I wouldn't call you a tight wad for not wanting to spend too much on a shirt you possibly wouldn't wear again!

  13. Cool shirt. We don't go into TK Maxx much - it always feels like a mishmash of stuff in there!

  19. I love the shirt. The problem I have with TKMaxx is you have to rummage and I don't have the time or inclination to do that especially when i have the kids in tow. I have got a few bargains in there though
