Una glitter-heeled pumps, £24.99
I’ve been hearing a lot of good reports about TK Maxx from the shoeperstars in the shoe forum lately, so I decided I had to check it out for myself!
I’m a big TK Maxx fan (Yes, it’s the same store you know as TJ Maxx in the States, US readers: I’ve no idea why it has a different name over here!): up until a few years ago, a high percentage of my shoe collection came from TK Maxx, and I would go in regularly to check out the new stock. For some reason, though, I haven’t been visiting as regularly as I used to, but tales of Casadei shoes and Vivienne Westwood dresses drew me back in! Unfortunately, my local store didn’t have anything quite as high-end as that: I find that the stock in TK Maxx varies dramatically, not just from store-to-store, but from day to day, too, so I’ll have to make a point of visiting more regularly to see what else I can find.
In the meantime, there may have been no designer bargains lurking on the shelves, but there were no shortage of shoes from some of my favourite brands. Here’s what I found…
These were my favourite pick by far. They’re by Chinese Laundry, they were £49.99, and they just so happen to be
I exactly the kind of thing I’ve been looking for, for those long, winter walks I like to take at this time of year. Unfortunately for me, although there were plenty of pairs in stock, they were all a UK size 3, which was much too small: boo!
Some other shoeper spots:
Nude pumps by Carvela, £30
Purple Jessica Simpson pumps, £29.99
Black cutwork Ted Baker peep toes, £33 (excuse the blurry photo – I was being watched!)
I actually forgot to note down the brand of these red and blue pumps, but I do remember it was a well-known high street brand, and these were each £39.99.
Ravel stud-heel pumps, £15
Anyone else been into TK Maxx lately? What did you find?
