A little while ago, I attended a Marshalls Find Your Fabulous event. I’ve always really like Marshalls, often finding really delicious off-brand snacks amongst their isles. For some reason, they just seem to have a better selection than TJMaxx, even though they’re owned by the same parent company.
Drawn by the promise of free cupcakes and lemonade, I shuffled downtown, to a large Fenway store that I’ve never been before.
I saw a lot of other shoppers, some there for the event, and some perusing the wares on a typical Wednesday afternoon.
There were giveaways in the form of Price is Right. Guests were given the typical retail price of an item, and guessed Marshalls’ price. I saw an old lady win a big red bag. It was adorable.
Apparently local fashion bloggers / celebrities were also attending this event. I always feel a little uncomfortable when the internet meets the real life, but they were cool people. I didn’t really follow their blogs, but it was interesting talkin’ to them and stuff.
I ended up buying a black floor-length dress. I admit it’s made of rayon (not cotton! gasp) and a tad too big on me, but it seemed like easy-wearin’ for the summery months. I could just throw it on and skedaddle.
I wore it we my friends and I went hiking in Maine (not the best of choices), and I saw another lady wearing the same dress just the other night.
I like it. Dunno what else to say.
