In honor of their brand new store opening on Michigan Avenue, T.J.Maxx challenged me to put together an outfit from one of their Chicago stores for less than $200.  Obviously, in the words of Barney Stinson- Challenge accepted!  I wasn’t the least bit worried since in high school half my wardrobe was from T.J.Maxx, and my receipts never got anywhere close to $200.  In fact, I’ve always thought of the store as my go-to for when I need grab some garb for closer to $20.

Needless to say, I set aside a few hours for browsing/bargain hunting and headed over to the Canal Street location to hunker down looking for deals and steals.  Spoiler alert: I was only there for 20 minutes!

Upon walking in the door I was immediately greeted by this signature DVF wrap dress, in my size, for less than half the retail price.  Done!  Does it look familiar?  Maybe that’s because we saw it front and center at the LACMA’s DVF exhibit earlier this year?  Or, maybe it’s because Diane Von Furstenberg herself has worn it at various stages of her career?  Or, perhaps you’ve seen the first lady wearing it?  Regardless, there it was at my local T.J.Maxx.  My day was made!

With room to spare in my $200 budget I headed for my favorite part of the accessories section- Sunglasses!  I instantly gravitated toward a certain pair, and who could have guessed- Oscar de la Renta, and well within budget!  Who knew T.J.Maxx stocked all these big name labels?  Not me.  But it gets better… Keep reading!
