On Friday I attended the Fashioning the New Year event, hosted by The Dynamic Duo Danielle and Lexi. The event started with the showcasing of apparel, hair, and body care. It was great to see designer items for a fraction of the retail price! We then played a game similar to The Price Is Right where an item was shown to us and we had to guess the TJ Maxx price. The person who guessed the price correctly got to keep the item. It was a blast! Next, there was a styling challenge where we were given 12 minutes to create a stylish outfit for the lowest price. While I admit I am a discount shopper, I must also admit that I was a little intimidated by all of the fashionistas present so I was definitely SHOCKED when I was chosen as one of the 3 challenge winners! I won a $25 gift card in addition to the one that we all received for attending. You're probably not gonna believe this but with $50 worth of gift cards in hand, I did not shop! I was too busy mingling with all the fabulous ladies in attendance. My urge to splurge was probably also tempered by the fact that I ran into Nine West prior to the event to purchase the AroundTown platform Mary Janes which had been marked down to $39.60 from $99!!! I tweeted about these Friday when I got the 60% off email from Nine West! I'll definitely let you guys know what I end up buying with my TJ Maxx gift cards. Stayed tuned...
