My Spring Picks with TJ Maxx

All pieces from layout via TJ Maxx. My outfit: Shoes and Shirt via TJ Maxx.

I’m so excited to be partnering with one of my favorite stores, T.J. Maxx, for the opening of their brand new Brooklyn location! On Thursday, May 1st, T.J. Maxx will be celebrating the opening of their newest store, in the famed Offerman Building at 503 Fulton Street in Brooklyn, NY. 
To celebrate this new location, I’ll be at there on opening day from 12-2PM showcasing my curated picks and offering spring fashion-advice – so come on by, as I always love meeting my readers! As you know, I’ve been a fan of T.J. Maxx for a long time because I can always find those high quality, brand name fashions that I love for unbelievable prices and this new store will undoubtedly be stocked with just that! I got a sneak peek at the goods and picked out some of my favorite spring pieces, which you can see above: graphic prints, structured leather handbags, linen pants, jeweled shoes, like the ones I’m wearing and more…

Last but not least, one reader will have a chance to win a $250 gift card, which they can hopefully come use that day! I would love to meet you and help you shop around for some new spring designer goodies. 
To enter: leave your name and contact below telling me what makes you a Maxxinista! One winner will be announced on Tuesday, April 29th. 
Good luck and hoping to see you there!

    this is a fantastic outfit baby


  • Lusting for Leather

    Love that top and shoes!

    I love TJ Maxx, because I always look for bargains and very rarely buy anything full price. It is so exciting to find a great item on sale. Makes shopping way more fun! I wish I could be there to meet you Thursday. Unfortunately, my schedule won't allow that to happen:(. Hopefully some other time!

    Check out my new outfit post when you get a chance. I would love to hear your thoughts!

    I am a classic Maxxinista because I can ALWAYS find what I am looking for but at a fraction of the price! jessicayas@gmail.com

  • cmf221

    I have been looking to add some new jeans into my wardrobe and I am loving the ones you are wearing!

  • Robyn Bourne

    I am a Maxxinista because I decorated my guest bathroom in everything from TJ Maxx. They have the best home goods!


  • Megan Myers

    I'm a TJ Maxx runway devotee – I've found everything from work blouses to sequin party dresses at my local store, and love seeing how each store has it's own personality and unique selection. Would love to get my hands on those heels!

  • Vera

    I love your picks!

    I have ALWAYS loved TJ MAX because hey, theres nothing better than a bargain & I have found some beautiful pieces over the years at TJ MAX & consider it one of my favorite stores! I hope to meet you at the opening, I find your blog & style so inspiring!

  • Deanna Glazebrook

    Absolutely LOVE your heels!
    I consider myself a maxxinista because I go to TJ atleast twice a week to check out their latest arrivals. I love shopping there not only because of the great selection and amazing prices, but because I live in a smaller city and don't want to bump into someone wearing the same top/whatever as me — so it's nice there's only so many of each piece. When I scoop something great up I typically shriek because it's like my own little treasure that I feel no one else will have ;D

    Have fun at your event!

    Because I'm Obsessed

  • Shelly

    Love tj love tj maxx-their selection and prices!

  • Ashley Foguel

    I consider myself a Maxxinista because I can find great shoes and staples at an affordable price, as a college student price is a Huge barrier to expression via fashion so finding an outlet that allows me to experiment is truly amazing.

    Love the shoes and the stripped shirt! Nice outfit!

    I'm definitely a Maxxinista! Thanks to TJ Maxx my closet is full of designer clothes, and I only spent a small fraction of an original price on it! 🙂

  • Daniella C


  • Teri

    My daughter and I have a "contest" every time we shop TJMaxx to see who can find the best deal…true fashionistas.
    Thans for the giveaway.

  • Pam Wozniak

    I have so much love for this casual look! You are the best!!!


  • Irina

    TJ Maxx and Marshall's are my go-to stores for bargain shopping!


  • Tanya

    I've been a Maxxinista since I was a little girl going to TJ Maxx with my mom. I immigrated to the US from Russia with my parents when I was 2 1/2 and we were never able to spend a lot on clothes since we were starting over in a new country. All my promotional code scavenging and sale stalking now is a direct result of those TJ Maxx days when my mom and I were always looking for fabulous finds, but on a budget!


  • Daisy

    Love the shoes!!

  • Lindsay Pfeifer

    As a college student attempting to break into the fashion and blogging world, TJ Maxx is a lifesaver for me! I'm able to wear great pieces from Vince, Joie and Rag & Bone and not break the bank! Last week I bought a gorgeous distressed denim vest by Rag & Bone and can't wait to style it constantly this spring and summer!


  • the contessa

    What girl doesn't love a bargain! TJMaxx allowes me to get some retail therapy without breaking the bank! calltl@ca.rr.com

  • Christina Lau

    TJ Maxx was my first employer! I worked as a sales associate during my junior and senior years of high school and while it was a demanding job, I really enjoyed learning the ins and outs of the business! What made me a Maxxinista was having the ability to help other Maxxinistas find the perfect outfits! I always loved giving styling suggestions and finding that great piece amidst the huge selection. I feel like I've come full circle because my recent internship at Nautica required close contact with TJ Maxx buyers. It's like I've been at each end of the spectrum, and I loved both!

    I love the pants you chose especially — I need those for summer! Lovely outfit as always 🙂

    I am the epitome of a Maxxinista! I adore fashion but not the prices of the pieces I fall in love with. If there is an item I really want, I'll do my research and will surely find that item on sale or a coupon for the store I found it at — I rarely pay full price for designer duds anymore. I can still be on trend with this season's items but for less! A little Shopstyle and Googling goes a long way! Also, I use Ebates, which pays you a percentage back for shopping through their website. (Last year I earned $125 in cash back! Try it!)

    I love your outfit!

    Maxxinista is my middle name! I'm always on the lookout for stylish pieces at a fraction of the price which is what I can always rely on at TJMaxx! I have found some of my most beloved designer pieces there (who knew they carry Jimmy Choo?!)

    i am intimate with my style, but never shirk from a challenge and a piece with edge, and am always on the prowl for a deal. been a loyal tj maxx fan for years and would spend that gift card in no time!


  • carey me on my way

    I love finding high end pieces at affordable prices, so I always make sure to check out the TJ Maxx family. I've found some of my favorite pieces there. The steals I've found inspire me to get more creative with my outfits because I can take chances on pieces I wouldn't with a steeper price tag

  • Liese

    I recently found such good deals on shoes at TJMaxx. So good!

    I felt in love with TJ Maxx the first time I was in New York. Now I am hunting for their bargains every time I'm in the US (too bad we don't have TJ Maxx in Germany) and would be thrilled to visit the new Brooklyn store in a couple of days when I am in NY again…

    What makes ME a Maxxinista?? Completing my fashion forward ensemble without ever maxxing out my credit cards. Thanks TJ!

  • AnnaBoyd

    I come from a long line of TJ Maxx shoppers — my mom, my grandmother, my aunts — we all love TJ Maxx for everything! From home goods to the latest fashion trends, we have found just about everything at TJ Maxx. I'm a maxinista because it allows me to live luxuriously while allowing me to live within my means, which is the theme of my blog below!


  • Krizia

    You picked some nice items!

    I am a long term Maxxinista! There is almost nothing I enjoy more than scouring the racks and coming across a great deal. Most recent purchase? A beeyooteefull Equipment silk blouse.

  • Alana Smith

    TJ Maxx has a great variety of clothing. I love the mix and match of high and low price points, both of which are usually affordable. But along with the clothes, one of the big reasons I keep going back is the home goods section. You can always find a great variety of frames, vases, high quality sheets, cooking ware and home accessories. I love it all!

  • Stephy

    I have been a Maxxinista for as long as I can remember. It is where you can find champagne taste on a beer budget, and even if you are not on a beer budget, T.J. Maxx is where you can find amazing pieces without having to pay the full (and sometimes insane) retail price!


  • Kenzie Lee

    I've been a Maxxinista for years! There's nothing better than scouring the racks for a great deal and walking away with a killer top (handbag, shoes, etc) at a killer price. It's also one of my favorite ways to score a great gift and a good price!

    X Kenzie


  • Emily

    TJ Maxx is the best! I love the adrenaline rush of finding a great piece at the fraction of the price!

    Great outfit, also. Love those shoes!


  • ktaylorharman

    What makes me a Maxxinista?! Simple- I'm a college fashion student and simply can't afford buying designer full price! So instead, I go to TJ Maxx for the thrill of the hunt and bargain!

    I love the outfit! : )


  • kate dinota linsalata

    I Love TJ Maxx! So happy they are opening another location near me! (I was really over the hike to 19th street). I'm a Maxxinista because I work in a nonprofit, and while I love what I do and find the work meaningful, the pay isn't great. I try to look my best every day to be taken seriously by colleagues and TJ Maxx helps me find great deals on designer clothes for work. (I also love to stock up on great accessories- bags and shoes especially- to help make my wardrobe more versatile)

    I'm a maxxinista because let's face it, it's still tough out there, you have to buy clothing that are both stylish and cost efficient! Pick me, Pick me!! LOL!


  • Becca

    1. A lady (in this place) with style and grace who knows the value of a dollar; an expert in maxximizing her designer finds without maxxing out her credit cards

    As a lifetime Maxxinista, shopping at TJ Maxx not only means finding amazing designer pieces at a fraction of the price, but to me, also symbolizes family. Shopping at TJ Maxx with my mother and younger sister is one of our main ways of spending quality time together. Shopping for each other, as well as for our father that's patiently waiting for us at home 🙂

    I can't wait for the Brooklyn opening! TJ Maxx has now strategically placed a store in between my workplace and apartment.

  • Iulia Toplean

    I am a Maxxinista becuase looking and dressing well does not have to cost a fortune. My mother taught me you don't have to spend a million bucks to look like a million bucks.

  • Staci (LeatherandLeops)

    I love dressing highs and lows together. There is nothing better than wearing a great piece and knowing that it was affordable and so chic at the same time.


  • Sreya

    Coco Chanel once said, "Fashion is not something that exists in dresses only. Fashion is in the sky, in the street, fashion has to do with ideas, the way we live, what is happening". These are words I live by every single day as I get dressed and I love that T.J. Maxx is such a great means thru which you can build a wardrobe that's not just current, but filled with classic, timeless pieces! And that's exactly what makes me a Maxxinista- having that opportunity to have a "happening" closet that's affordable, without sacrificing quality and style!

    Love your blog, Helena- You've inspired me toooooooo many times!

    Hi Helena,
    I'm a Queens Blonde & lover of fashion! I'm a New York City Public School Teacher who lives for fashion on a budget. Like you, TJ Maxx is one of my go to stores to get great items at a steal! You blog is truly inspiring and over the past few weeks I've been thinking about starting a fashion budget blog, just as something fun to do after my teaching day ends. I's love a chance to win the TJ Maxx gift card to grab some fabulous new items for spring and summer.

  • Alexandra Rosaria

    Hello! My name is Alexandra D'Anna and I am absolutely a maxxinista. Living on an undergraduate budget, and also being obsessed with fashion and style creates a problem of having to express myself through style…on a budget. I have a fashion blog, as well, and in pretty much every single post there is at least one item from TJ Maxx. Without TJ Maxx I wouldn't be able to express myself through style the way I like to. It would mean a lot to be able to grab some amazing new pieces for my spring and summer wardrobe.


  • Julie Khuu | Haute Khuuture

    I'm not only a fashion maxxinista but a design one as well! Sourcing everything from fab fashion finds to home decor essentials it's all about the SUPAstore! TjMaxx + HomeGoods = HEAVEN! Awesome giveaway!

    Hi Helena!

    I'm a serious Maxxinista because literally no trip is complete without checking out the local TJ Maxx! I've found work clothes, shoes, dog toys, workout clothes, sheets, etc. for a steal! In a nutshell: the place is a gold mine and I would just love a $250 gift card! Great giveaway 🙂


  • Parker Strickland

    I have been a Maxxanista since my mom introduced me to heaven on Earth when I was a little girl. AS an adult, I visit Maxx so often the sales associates and managers know my name and I know theirs. My friends always beg me to go to Maxx with them to help them score awesome deals and put together outfits or accessorize their living spaces in ways they wouldn't have dreamt up on their own. My love affair with the store will never lend as long as they continue having great prices and fantastic pieces to choose from!

    Love your blog, Helena!

  • gracekelle at leangirlsclub

    Being a Maxxinista means knowing having the confidence that YOU make the outfit, and good clothes at GREAT prices are the accessory. It means not copying looks but having the savvy to know how to personalize trends to make them YOU.

    TJ Maxx is great for finding designer finds at non-designer prices. I love a good deal – it makes the outfit so much sweeter.
