Little Treats

I decided I needed a break from the decorating so headed into town to have a look for some accessories. What I was really after was a lamp. Having exhausted eBay for a quirky retro one I decided to see what I could find in the shops. I saw a few nice ones in Debenhams a parrot is running favourite, but since I am in no rush for it I decided to have a look around. I have found really unique things in the past from TK Maxx so decided to have a look, they also have designer clothes for men (just in case I hadn’t mentioned that). I had absolutely no intention of looking at clothes or accessories, certainly not sunglasses but some how found myself leaving the store with yet another pair!

How could I resist these embellished Karl Lagerfeld ones for £24.99! They look black but are actually layers of blue and yellow plexi. I also thought it was about time I showed you the treasured Celine’s I picked up the other week. A tip for when buying sunglasses in TK Maxx, as they don’t always have the matching case – sometimes they don’t get sent with cases at all , other times the case’s come in later- at the till ask them to write the brand of the sunglasses on your receipt and that you didn’t get a case. Then if you happen to be in the next time and they do have the matching case you can pick it up so long as you have your receipt. I do have to add though, you are getting so much off the RRP I wouldn’t worry about the case all too much. I also took home two books ‘After a Fashion’ and ‘Vintage Jewellery’ both beautiful coffee table tomes I will enjoy looking through. Especially as the former has lots of Vivienne Westwood images. My favourite scents are Lavender and Violet so I couldn’t resist this delicious Castelbel scented candle, perfect for getting rid of the smell of paint.

Have a great weekend

    • I think you will get the case if they have it, but some of them they just don’t get the cases for, its pot luck!

  • Waaargh! Upon your recommendation, I’ve popped into TKMaxx every time I’ve been past, at least thrice a week. I still don’t manage to pick up the same treasures as you. Send over your magic powers.

    • Really??? But they always have tons of amazing stuff, hmm unless of course it is because I buy EVERYTHING!! ;)

    • It is a nice one isn’t it, you would like the fashion one too really beautiful images lots of one’s I hadn’t seen before, not like some books that just reuse the same popular images. It’s a mix of old Hollywood stars to people on the street x

  • Pearl, I am always amazed by the brands you manage to find in TKMaxx! As I’ve said before I don’t often venture into the one on Market Street as when I have done I haven’t found it a particularly relaxing experience (though probably cause I’m in there without fail every Christmas Eve trying to buy someone or other a t shirt) but after seeing this post I’ll definitely be making a point of popping in next time I go shopping in town! Both pairs of glasses are beautiful – you never can have too many pairs in my opinion, though when I have a nice pair I tend to wear them all the time. For example one of my best Christmas presents was a pair of Ray Bans and I end up wearing them even when it’s pouring down just because I love them so much! So tempted to wear them to school – I’d feel so cool, then probably get told off very promptly! Hope the decorating is going well and nearly done! xx
