Never having been a bargain hunter or serial rummager, I entered TK Maxx with an open mind last week as I went to forage for an outfit to feature. I was advised to get to the store as early as possible as they replenish their stock with different items daily!
The sheer enormity of the store was a little overwhelming at first but with a basket in hand, I headed straight for the 'Gold Label' section of the new Covent Garden TK Maxx store. I was nicely surprised at the huge offering of stock from various Parisian fashion houses, all just sitting neatly upon padded coat hangers, waiting for me to sift eagerly through them.
I found so much more than I needed to and I wanted to take it all home with me, of course. The outfit shown seemed the most practical though due to the easy transition it provides from day to night - something that is invaluable when you live outside of central London and don't have the time to trek back and forth.
Collaborating with TK Maxx has been an eye opener. The brands that are stocked in store are ones that I yearn to buy but could never possibly afford on my budget without some significant saving and splurging. TK Maxx makes it that little bit easier to see the brands I love and long for hanging in my wardrobe.
You can find the new TK Maxx store at 15-17 Long Acre, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9LH.
