Who doesn't love a bargain? Everybody loves a bargain! It's this joy of the cheap and cheerful hunt that had a whole flock of us fashion bloggers head down to the new flagship store opening of the Charing Cross Road branch of TK Maxx - the place for lots of lovely designer bargains! We drank champagne, ran amok in the shoe department and felt a little bit awkward (at least I did!) watching the dancing 'mannequins'.
These beauties are the fabulous four that I spent most of the night with having lots of giggles with ! Left to right: Fiona from Save Our Shoes, Ellie from Pretty Much Penniless, Laura from This Is Miss Laura and Emily from My Fashion Life.
Ellie love this cardigan with shoulder detail and a skull made of lace on the back and I was more than a little bit in love with this crinkled maxi dress, which was a total steal at £15.
It was lovely to see Kristin aka The Clothes Whisperer (check out the amazzzzing Pucci she bought) and to meet Charlotte from Style Cartel, Lira from The Portmanteau and my new style crush, Emily from Fashion Foie Gras! It was also really nice to see Lily again, who is just the prettiest PR girl in the world, no? She said "As soon as I saw the bow, I knew it was you, Amy!" Haha... I had forgotten I wore a different massive bow to the last TK Maxx event!

TK Maxx were also launching Modbox, their new fashion department which opens on July 25th and will feature a variety of on trend items, from Varsity geek chic to Upper east Side glamour (I've been watching an awful lot of Gossip Girl lately so this really appeals to me right now) alongside Military and grungy Neo-Rocker looks. You can see a behind-the-scenes video from the lookbook shoot here.
I love the preview collection for Autumn/Winter...
Leather satchels: small £16.99, large £19.99 (WANT)
Blue layered skirt £19.99
and navy coat, £99.99.
But enough about Autumn: this is what I was wearing that summer day!
WHAT I'M WEARING
Much-loved satchel // Topshop
'Joel' sweetheart bracelet // Ebay
Big blue bow! // Topshop (£5 in the sale)
Vintage dress (this fits like a DREAM) // Brick Lane
Purple suede wedges // New Look (years ago and still going strong!)
We had quite a little photoshoot on the street in Covent Garden. Left to right: Emily, Fiona and Laura. (Click on the pictures to see their outfits bigger!) I was so jealous of Emily's Swedish Hasbeens (bought from none other than TK Maxx for TWENTY FIVE POUNDS!), Fiona's awesome printed trousers and Laura's gorgeous grey bag.
And doesn't Fiona look super cute in my bow?
