As we have been talking about both bargain fashion and shopping ethically, a call from TK Maxx came at exactly the right time. As you know by now I am a huge fan of the company and they tick all the boxes for ethic, bargain and quality fashion. In fact you should check out their website which has a clear, easy to read section on their environmental considerations. TK Maxx offer the latest trends and new season stock at lower than recommended retail price, they do this as they work directly with the brands and designers so they can offer such reasonable prices. They also offer past season stock but only on designer classic, key pieces which will not date – I can vouch for that, I have a wardrobe full of pieces from the store. This is called their Gold Label collection. You can see why I love the them, I can get beautiful designer pieces and my high street must haves all at lower prices whilst still being ethical, what’s not to love!
The guys over at TK Maxx wondered if I might be interested in styling up some of their new season stock to hit the rails. Of course I jumped at the chance to be able to show you exactly the kind of things they have on offer. We decided to style up three outfits with a budget of ┬ú50 each. So for the next 3 days you will be seeing TK Maxx’s hottest fashions! The theme being cool girl LA style, think Kate Bosworth, Sienna Miller, Agyness Deyn, Kate Moss, Nicole Ritchie all soaking up the sun at Coachella – only with me in the little less sunny UK.
I am wearing:
Jumpsuit by Ultra pink ┬ú19.99
Wide brim hat by Failsworth RRP ┬ú20 TK Max price ┬ú9.99
Clutch bag by Modapelle ┬ú10.00 reduced from ┬ú12.99
(All other accessories my own)
Total cost: ┬ú39.98
I also feel the need to comment on the quality of the pieces. Every single thing you wouldn’t blink at if you saw it priced higher in a different shop. The jumpsuit was fully lined and the material heavy enough to drape correctly. The straw hat was beautifully made in the UK by a long established UK company called Failsworth, who happen to manufacture in Failsworth too. The clutch bag with its pretty embroidery would be one to pull out year after year.
I hope you like my choice, the next outfit will be posted tomorrow. In the mean time if you want to check out TK Maxx’s Superbrands Summer collection it is now online as well as in stores.
(Disclaimer: This was not a sponsored post, I did not receive payment, TK Maxx kindly lent me the clothing samples. I choose to work with the company as I genuinely support them and also thought it would be a fun post)
I also posted an album of LA Summer Style Inspiration on my facebook page featuring celebs and street style!
