Sails and Sales
For example, today's top is what I want to focus on here. I was at TJ Maxx a few weeks ago, and this chambray tee-like top caught my eye. My mid-thirties, now Anthroesque eye. I thought to myself, "That looks like a top I've seen at Anthropologie." The brand sounded familiar too (like one they carried). So out comes my smart phone (haven't even had this thing a year yet and I already wondered how I lived without it) and I promptly found it on Anthropologie's website as the Daydrifter Denim Tee. Yep, it's the exact same shirt! On Anthro's website, the brand is Bella Dahl. At TJ Maxx, it is labeled Cloth & Stone. A bit more internet research, and I found out the labels are in fact, one in the same. Anthropologie is still retailing this shirt for $78. TJ Maxx price? $29.99
When Anthro does put this top on sale, I am guessing it will either be $29.95 or $39.95. But, who wants to wait? Not me. Even though I recently took the chambray plunge, the previously shirt I bought is a long sleeved button up and a darker wash. This one is more of a t-shirt style, a lighter wash, and softer than you can ever imagine! I am finally starting to see what all the fuss was about chambray! It is going to go with so much in my closet, firstly a nautical themed skirt!
