Dior, YSL, Fendi & Prada at TJ Maxx

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!

I found Missoni and Pucci dresses at the Bridgehampton store and bought both...very cute ones, and the Pucci was $300 more on Yoox.

Which location is this? The West 57th one near Columbus Circle or the one on Columbus in the upper 90's?

Those friends and family codes are not working for Saks.
