I have to admit, it had been a long time since I have been to TJ Maxx. OK, that isn’t entirely true. I will sometimes run in to find deals on Ralph Lauren for my boys when I’m in the burbs or visiting my parents, but I really don’t look for myself and I had never been to a location in Manhattan until about a week and a half ago. I went specifically to shop for myself and decided to only consider higher-end labels. It was a rainy and completely disgusting day and I had about three hours to just shop…by myself. Heaven. So armed with a $500 gift card, I was ready to search! The one thing I knew I needed more than anything was a good trench coat. If I could find that, I would be happy. Someone’s rogue cigarette found it’s way through my cracked car window and burned a hole and thus ruined my prized Burberry trench years ago and I had yet to replace it with anything I liked as much.
OK, so yes, everything I bought was pretty much grey or black. But I really didn’t see anything in my size in a real color that I had to have or needed. I swear! Oh, and so you don’t think I am a total ogre, I bought my husband this fabulous Polo sweater for $49.99 in guess what color? Charcoal.
