A good bargain and an excellent challenge? Sign me up. I was thrilled when TJ Maxx asked this Miami fashion blogger to be a part of its TJ Maxx style scout blogger challenge with fashion blogger Helena Glazer of Brooklyn Blonde. My mission, as I chose to accept it, to put together a look inspired by Glazer’s Youtube video that incorporated one of the trends of the season. Those trends included looks that have taken over the pages of mags this summer: pastels, neons, florals, metallics or black and white combos. The choice was a no-brainer for me. Of course I went with my favorite color blocking blend: Black and white. The choice was easy, considering this stellar dress was marked at just $20. Can you believe it?  In addition to the hues, the backless aspect really drew me in. I threw in a pop of red for good measure (it’s my favorite shade) and paired it with a killer bag and wedges. My whole look, head to toe, cost less than $150. Yes, TJ Maxx, you rock.

Get motivated yourself with Glazer’s video and a trip to TJ Maxx where you can put your interpretation of these trends together. Then tweet or Instagram your look using the hashtag #maxxinista so you can show off your look for less.
