I love twitter - I find out things on twitter I might otherwise never discover. It is also one of my main sources of news: it was via the medium of twitter that I learnt about the deaths of both Micheal Jackson and Brittney Murphy.
Today's most interesting tweet came from TKMaxx who said that they'd just launched a department selling shoes on their website. I had five minutes to burn, so I decided to check them out. I usually see TKMaxx as somewhere you go to rifle through rails and bag a bargain. So I was delighted to find you can buy from the comfort of your own home and the discounts are just as good.
I know i've always been very pro-primark and other cheap highstreet stores (and I think I always will love these shops for cheap trend injection) but lately i'm really seeing the merits in buying quality products that will last forever, and my mission to have a strong basic wardrobe of staples is still at the forefront of my mind. I'm currently looking for a really good quality mac (with a twist) that will last forever but still have a fashion forward edge (let me know if you have any ideas!)
T K Maxx and other stores like it (Yes, i'm still daydreaming about Bicester village) make products of a better brand and quality more accessible to girls on a tight-ish budget like me!
Love, Tor xx
