This year I resolved to stop shopping so much (I know, what was I thinking?), a resolution I promptly broke on New Years Day for this lovely thing of beauty. My first fantastic buy of the year was the Maxx New York Barrymore Magazine Tote. True to its name, its big enough to fit magazines, folders and books, plus the rest of my life that I tote around with me on a regular basis. The structured style and winter white make it very polished and appropriate for work, but the studs give it a fun edge.
Before you laugh at me and my resolution that lasted about 4 hours, I don’t think I completely failed. I snagged my new favorite bag for at TJ Maxx for only $39! (original price tag: $225). I would like to point out that this is a whopping 83% off the original price. If I wasn’t a TJ Maxx convert before, I definitely am now. They’re carrying a lot more expensive bags at fantastic prices. I also have my eye on a purple Michael Kors bag that wants to come home with me.
There are two morals to my New Years Day story:
- Shopping less was a silly resolution; I am convinced it cannot be done.
- You can’t really feel guilty for any purchases you make at 83% off the original price.
Happy New Year and Happy Shopping!
