Fail safe

Black biker jacket with bow detail - - add a floral summer dress for instant dirty cool, €28.48 from TKMaxx.

I was in here on Saturday and met three ex-colleagues - everyone's after the bargains these days. One of them, shopping with his 12-year-old son, was wearing a green diamante earring. Green diamante. A midlife crisis of epic proportions, I didn't know where to look.

Chit-chatting while surrounded by discounted knickers and soft furnishings is odd, but mid-recession conversation I did note that TKMaxx are to be applauded for their selection of tights - great colours starting at around €5.99, an easy way to brighten up any outfit for less than a tenner.

Well, life certainly won't be dull for Mr. Diamante. Or for his kid!!!

Oh dear. Men and earring or any sort are just to be shunned.


Men with earrings and TK max. That shops gives me palpitations.

I had a phobia of TK Maxx for ages since it just seemed like a mental scene of destruction with knackbags pushing trolleys down the narrow aisles with clothes trailing on the wheels. But then I chanced the one in Stephens Green when it was really REALLY quiet one evening and I actually bought stuff! I was amazed.

Profoundly Superficial - I'm not entirely sure, but te kid may have had one too.

Lottie - Shunned indeed. And it was definitely a ladies earring.

Kitty - See? I particularly like the 'young fashion' section, where I once found two primp T-shirts for less than 40 quid.
