Last week I visited a T.J.Maxx store in a neighboring town that's more upscale and I had the same feeling you guys get when you see my usual photos: This store is so much better than mine! Guess the grass is always greener, right? I thought the handbag selection was better at this store, probably because I spotted a mint green Rebecca Minkoff Mini Mab satchel for $180 (regularly $395) that left a little hole in my heart when I left it on the rack (couldn't justify another RM bag purchase right now). I also spotted lots of great summer sandals by DV Dolce Vita, Sam Edelman, and Steve Madden, plus some cute Essie nail polishes and those Ciate Caviar Manicure sets for $12.99, which I've seen for $25 at Nordstrom (HERE). I also left behind a Coach crossbody bag which was a reasonably priced $80 (compare at $258). Which reminds me, the Coach Semi-Annual sale is going on right now, so be sure to check that out! Anyways, I didn't photograph any clothing items but I did pick up a striped 3/4 length sleeve boatneck tee by Cynthia Rowley for $17, which, upon seeing, prompted my husband to say, "Don't you already have, like, 3 shirts exactly like that?" Yes, dear, yes I do.
More pics after the jump.
