TJ Maxx/Marshalls New Year New You Bloggers Event

Hi Bellas,

I'm back with pictures from another fabulous blogger event!  Recently I had the chance to attend Lexi & Danielle's New Year New You Blogger Event Hosted by TJ Maxx and Marshalls.  It was a super fun night consisting of style challenges and mixing and mingling with Atlanta's hottest Beauty, Fashion & Hair Bloggers.
I was super excited to hear that the event was hosted at my local TJ Maxx which is literally 5 minutes from me.  I shop there all the time!  When I got there, there were already a bunch of bloggers huddled around the accessory section playing The Price is Right Type of Games.  These Fashion Bloggers were on point guessing the discounted prices on Designer Labels from the TJ Maxx Runway area.
Here are our lovely hosts in Action!
We played a really fun game where we had only 12 minutes to put together a complete, casual outfit.  The cheaper the better!  My whole outfit was only $59.  I got a green military jacket over a nude stretchy dress with a fun colorful scarf and some edgy, slouchy boots.
Here I am demonstrating my outfit to the crowd.
It was fun seeing everyone's different styles.  I was a little bit intimidated amongst all the fashion bloggers but I think I held my own!  The contest was actually judged by the store's Accessory Managers.


After witnessing everyone's outfit presentations, here are a few tips and trends I learned along the way.
  • Bright colors are in! From skinny jeans to statement shoes, the brighter the better!
  • Mix up an outfit by taxing basics like wedges and ballet flats and adding a twist like animal prints.
  • TJ Maxx is up to 60% off department store prices and each store gets up to 10,000 new pieces in every week.
  • Feature Racks are placed near the front!
  • Befriend your store manager so you can get the scoop!
We enjoyed some lovely refreshments along the way!
Everyone who attended received a $25 gift card!  I also won a trivia question contest and got an extra one!  It was a beauty related question so I had a bit of an advantage lol.
Here I am with lovely hostess Lexi.
Group shot!  I was definitely probably the shortest there but I was embarrassed to get in the front, lol.  You can see the green arrow pointing to me in the back!

It was a fabulous time!  Thanks to Lexi and Danielle as well as TJ Maxx/Marshalls for hosting!
