We have come to adore the TJ Maxx at Columbus Square almost as much as we love Whole Foods. During a recent trip we found an unexpected array of designer shoes, accessories and clothing.
Following our own advice, we headed straight to "The Runway" section that is delineated by lavender signs. A table of yellow Fendi boxes first caught our eye. Upon the table we found lots of designer iPad accessories. A hot pink leather YSL iPad case was $280 from a suggested retail of $450 and a Fendi rubber iPad protector was $100 from $150. In the same area we also found an interesting unknown Italian designer bag made of mink and leather for $230.
Further along, we spotted a lone nude silk and sequined Versace dress for $400 from $1000, a very Fall 2011 cashmere Ralph Lauren Black Label cape for $500 from $1250 and a Black Label shearling jacket for $700. The store tags were still on the shearling jacked and showed a retail price of $3,600!
In addition to the more expensive high-end designer clothing, we found lots of McQ by Alexander McQueen priced almost as attractively. A two tone wrap dress from last year is $130 from $325. (The same dress is $425 on Yoox.com.) A McQ silk dress with zippers is $200 and an iconic print seethe is $300.
Shoe lovers brace yourself. We found Dolce & Gabbana sandals, Miu Miu pumps, Christian Dior slingbacks and last season's Prada patent two-tone pumps all priced at $300. We dare you to find a single pair of shoes on the 8th floor of Saks priced under $300.
See, it's even better than organic veges!
