#MaxxLife – Combining Fashion & Home Decor with TJ Maxx

Last week I attended an event that combined my two loves: fashion and home decor. TJ Maxx launched their latest campaign, Maxx Life, and costume designer Jenn Rogien {Girls, Orange is the New Black, etc.} dished on how to tell the story of who your are via what you wear and how you decorate your living space.
At this interactive event, we were given a character narrative and then had to create a full look for our woman to wear as well as decorate a bookshelf that represented our girl’s overall aesthetic. Our home and style needs were met with finds from TJ Maxx!
