Party twins

Imagine two friends shopping at TK Maxx, one in Edinburgh and the other in Glasgow, for a little birthday night out.  And somehow, without a hint as to what the other has chosen, we end up twinning.  That is true friendship right there.

The reason for our party-wear haul is that TK Maxx has an extra big delivery of everything you need to throw or attend a party, in store and online right now, and we are celebrating Miss Carrie’s brithday.  I honestly found so many gems whilst looking for my outfit; cue faux fur, lace, knits, sequins and the maxi dress that it hurt so bad to leave behind (but floor length chiffon for a Glasgow winter?  I just couldn’t do it…) and they’re all in store right now so I urge you to pop in, even if you’ve never been before.  And it doesn’t stop there – you can pick up party decorations for the home and adorable party pieces when in store too so everyone and everything can get ready to celebrate.

Right, back to my party twin, ok, so we’re not identical twins but we both wound up choosing pale pink minis (mine £25 with an RRP of £332 and Carrie’s £39 with an RRP of £210 – yeah, seriously) with navy up top and navy accessories.  I love that in some ways we’re so similar but each look is totally our own style; Carrie is the sort of girl who rocks up to work on a Monday morning in sequins so partywear is kinda her bag, whereas I am the sort of girl who wears a big chunky knit on a night out.  And this knit is EPIC.  I mean, it’s by a brand I first fell in love with on a trip to New York and have been coveting ever since so when I spied it at 60% off, you could not prise it out of my eager mitts.  The shoes were a last minute addition I sourced online and had delivered just in time for our little soiree…

TK Maxx might be different, but when you get it, you really get it…  and I get it.

So yeah, I made her hold my hand for these shots because I thought it’d be cute and I love her (and this is the girl who I once had matching tan lines with after lounging side by side for an afternoon in Aix en Provence on a giant inflatable swan, just laughing and floating.  Our arms lay squished together for hours in that French sun and after that our tans only looked complete when we pieced ourselves back together like a little two piece puzzle).  And we shared food and toasted Carrie’s birthday in our matchy matchy, same same but different, outfits…
