And the good people of Marshalls/TJMaxx challenged me to one!
Allow me to explain...
Women everywhere are anxiously awaiting the May 27th release of Sex and the City 2. We all know Sex and the City the TV show and the movie always leave women everywhere salivating over fashion, as well as the characters love lives. Whether you’re a Charlotte, a Samantha, a Carrie or a Miranda, you don’t can get the looks inspired by the movie even if you don’t have Charlotte’s Park Avenue budget or Mr. BIG’s wallet!
In the spirit of the those amazing wardrobes of the girls from Sex in the City, I was challenged to find a "thrifty" version of the 10 million dollar wardrobe that was budgeted for the release of the new movie, Sex in the City 2.
I have to admit though, I have never seen Sex in the City.
But I am aware of the clothing and it's influences on the world of fashion, so I was thrilled to accept the challenge by Marshalls/ TJMaxx. I was given a $50.00 budget, much less than the 10 million clothing budget of SIC, but that didn't scare me at all. You don’t have the money like the ladies in the big city or don’t have a “Mr. Big,” (not to be mistaken by Big Daddy, a self professed tight wad) to pull off designer looks, By shopping at off-price retailers like TJ Maxx and Marshalls, you can find the same items for less.Here are some pictures from the movie to be released....
With that in mind, I headed to my local TJ Maxx store in Alabaster. It didn't take me long to come up with some summer fashions that I thought gorgeous...and all of these pieces are less that $20.00 each piece. I like that!
And this is what I purchased:
BandolinoBlu Jeans $16.99
and 2 Tops for $16.99 each, just barely going over my $50.00 budget...bc I had to have it!
I love the tops that I got (below) because they are no thought tanks, I don't even have to put on a necklace because of their design. Just earrings or a bracelet and I'm ready!
All approved by Jeffery Windham, my shihtsu.
I declare myself a "maxinestta"!
You can be a maxinestta too and have these designer looks at discount prices too...and just in time for the SITC2 movie on Friday!
