TKMAXX is proper retail marmite.
Personally I LOVE it (marmite and the MAXX) and with a festival themed wedding to attend this Friday (and saturday… and Sunday) complete with bands, picnic and camping I decided I’d try and get hold of some new festival chic clobber to rock up in that wasn’t going to break the bank.
Suits, nice shoes and fields generally don’t mix so I was after a suit alternative, something a little edgy perhaps, a cheap pair of shoes and a few accessories that I won’t feel too protective over if the heavens open and the picnic goes ‘swampy’.
A trip to TKMAXX on saturday yielded the following bargain purchases…
Jacket – Allsaints | RRP £200.00 TKMAXX £50.00
Tousers – Ralph Lauren | RRP £175.00 TKMAXX £30.00
Shirt – Ganesh | RRP £60.00 TKMAXX £19.99
Tie – Altea | RRP £50.00 TKMAXX £7.99
Shoes – Red Tape | RRP £40.00 TKMAXX £24.99
I got the whole outfit for less than you could buy the trousers for at full price. BARGAIN.
Here I am pouncing around RMW HQ sporting my new gear. Lauren somehow managed to keep the camera steady through the fits of laughter at my ‘catalogue’ poses… Well done Lolly.
So, what do you folks think of TKMAXX. I recommend it if you have a vague idea of what you want but not looking for something specific! And of course be prepared to rummage, dig, punch, kick, hit…*
P.S My best buy I think was that herringbone tweed tie… I have been looking for “the one” for a while now and this was most certainly it. And at £7.99 who is going to argue?
*Rock My Wedding does not condone any form of violence in a shopping scenario or any other environment. Even if that lady has got the last such and such top in size such and such.
