Burberry Metallic Plaid Coat  |  J. Crew Pixie Pant  |  Miu Miu Glitter Flats (similar by Miu Miu)  |
Chanel Bag  |  t+j Designs Gunmetal hoops  |

If you follow me on twitter, you might have read my funny story wearing this outfit.  It was a bit chillier on Friday and I was headed to Michigan Ave to run some errands.  I do my little bits to save on money so I can fund my shopping habit so I decided to ride the bus (which is $2.25 each way rather than $35 to park by Michigan Avenue).  While on the bus, this stylish man said he loved my jacket.  When he was departing off the bus he noticed my shoes and said, "Oh and your shoes are even more fabulous!  Why are you riding the bus?"  It reminded me of the episode of Sex & the City where Carrie tries riding the bus and the bus arrives with a picture of her on the side of the bus :) and a person asks her why she is riding the bus when she is on the bus.  

Hope everyone is having a great Monday and if you missed my Halloween look and story, check it out here. Working on our t+j Designs holiday collection launch on Wednesday! Be sure to check back for updates.

Happy Halloween Lookbook

A quick post to wish everyone a Happy Halloween!  We attended our friend's Halloween party and had a blast.  My Halloween started with someone stealing my awesome Pan Am outfit that I ordered from our front door. Unmotivated I waited until last minute to put together my outfit.  I looked at my closet yesterday and saw my Diane Von Furstenberg sequin beaded dress and thought I could easily be a flapper.  Everything was in my closet, the only purchase was the sequin silver headband.  One of the lovely necklaces I'm wearing is part of our holiday collection launching on Wednesday.  It's gorgeous with satin, gold chains, faux pearls and stones.

As you can see my handsome husband was still a pilot (still a bit bitter about my Pan Am outfit) and I had to post my favorite costume of the night by the host himself.  Isn't the Slim Jim outfit awesome?

Hope everyone enjoyed their weekend and have a fantastic Halloween!

t+j Designs Jewelry Party and Color Me Fall Lookbook

I promised to share pictures from our first t+j Designs jewelry party from last weekend.  Fabulous jewels for fabulous women.  My wonderful sister-in law threw the party and I met her group of stylish, fun, and beautiful friends.  It was so much fun and I got to share pieces we don't have on the site yet!

In addition to the party, I got to spend some time my my in-laws and I took some lookbook pics in front in their gorgeous house.  The colors outside were the perfect back drop to my very fall outfit.

Chaps Plaid Wool Poncho Cape from Kohl's  |  Helmut Lang Red Asymmetrical Top  |
Forever 21 Skinny Denim  |  Christian Dior Camel Boots  | Michael Kors Watch

I went to Kohl's for the first time this weekend and found this adorable poncho cape.  It's a great fall/holiday plaid with cord binding and reminds of an expensive Ralph Lauren piece, but for a more affordable price.  I've been on the search for an affordable poncho/cape piece and finally found one for under $100!  

I'm also loving this options for under $100:



What do you think about the poncho & cape trend for fall?

Zara Vest  (similar)  |  Elizabeth & James Chantal Blouse (Same blouse here w/brown leather trim here and animal print version here) |  BCBG Pleated Skirt (similar)  |  Aldo Leopard Purse  |  
Jimmy Choo Booties  |  t+j Designs Glam Leatherette Ring  |  t+j Designs Black and Gold Link Necklace to launch in November

We spent a lovely weekend with my in-laws; eating lots of food, seeing our nieces and nephews, and my sister-in-law was so kind in throwing a t+j Designs jewelry party at her house.  Pictures to come this week!  

Although I love colors, sometimes I love to mix my neutral pieces.  The vest I got last year from Zara; I love the faux fur trend and will be sharing my love of affordable faux fur pieces this week.  The Elizabeth & James blouse was a recent fall purchase, although pricey, the silk blouse has beautiful suede cuff details, and leather trim at the center front.  It is a classic, but fashionable piece that I will wear for years.  

How was your weekend?  Are you pulling out your fall gear yet?

Fuzzy Zara Lookbook

Polka Dot Nylons from Nordstrom (similar here)  |  Michael Kors Watch  |  t+j Designs White Pyramid Bracelet  |  t+j Designs ring and earrings to launch in November  |

These are the same shorts I posted on Monday, Metallic Leopard Lookbook.  I've had them for 4 years and wear them often.  When I first purchased them I thought $150 for a pair of shorts was a bit much, but I love the fit and fabric; 4 years later I feel they were a great investment.  This fuzzy Zara sweater was one of those where I said to myself, "Do I like this sweater? Is this sweater weird?  Do I look big in this sweater?" But there's something odd, unique and cozy about this sweater.  It reminds me of upholstery, but in a good way and I think the touches of pink and metallic in the yarns drew me in.  I took these photos over a week ago and last week I saw one of my favorite bloggers, Atlantic Pacific, wearing the same sweater.  

Look out for the announcement of new arrivals on Thursday for t+j Designs.  Bracelets, limited edition bags, and some gorgeous rings will all be up on our sight!

Tibi Leopard Jacquard Cap Sleeve Top (same print also comes in a skirt)  |  Alice + Olivia Cady Short  |  Pour la Victoire Gold Irina Pumps  |  Urban Expression Bailey Clutch  | t+j Designs Pyramid Bracelet and Black and Gold Glam Bracelet  |  t+j Designs Gold Edge Bangle to launch next month

I pulled out another leopard top of mine last week when the weather was still warm in the 70's.  I love this Tibi top; the metallic jacquard leopard print is shiny, pretty, and has just the right touch of print so that it is easy to wear.  Now that the fall weather is in full effect, I'll probably wear a black blazer, leather jacket or coat as well as full length pants to head out.  

We are launching a new collection of holiday items this week so I'm a bit busy trying to work on our website.  Owning our own business is so rewarding and exciting.  Work is enjoyable and hearing how much people love our jewelry is wonderful.  We really appreciate all the support and hope you continue to love our collections and items to come.  If you do love our items and would like to be updated on specials, announcements, and new arrivals, sign up for email updates at http://www.tplusjdesigns.com/!

J. Crew Collection Jacket (from last year)  |  Bella Dahl Chambray Shirt  (similar)|  Rag  & Bone Skinny Jean (similar)  |  Jimmy Choo Booties  |  t+j Designs Crystal Bauble Earrings  |
t+j Designs Limited Edition Pink Burke Bag & Bracelets (to launch next week!!)  

I was running out for a quick errand in the morning.  1) this is what my hair looks like when I don't blow dry it or do anything to it.  2) The items I'm wearing besides the booties and the limited edition bag have been worn before on lookbook posts!

It is always good to have pieces that can mix and match in your wardrobe so it's easy to dress each day and helps the budget.  

I know many of you might be excited about the Limited Edition Pink Burke Bag (well I'm assuming so because I am!)  My sister and I went to a purse factory and created these fun and chic bags inspired by the canvas totes I've been seeing around.  Our bag is even better - shaped like a real purse, the print is amazing with textures on it, and a longer strap is included so that you can use it over the shoulder.  Better pictures will be posted online.  We only have a small limited amount; when it launches next week and if you love it, you are going to have to get it quickly.  These will be launched mid next week!

Here are the totes that I've been seeing:


Our Pink Burke Bag!

What do you think?  Happy Friday!

t+j Designs Luxe Chain Link Crystal Drop Necklace  |  t+j Designs earring studs to launch soon

My husband and I are taking advantage of this gorgeous weather and early this week we went to lunch together and sat outside.  You can tell from the pictures how pretty fall is with the leaves turning and falling.  

I recently purchased this J. Crew Silk Lucinda Blouse on sale and right now they are running an extra 30% off of their sale items with the promo code MUSTHAVE.  As mentioned before, I'm been on the search of quality deals and I've been in love with Equipment blouses but the price tag at $200 and over is above my budget.  J. Crew blouses are a great alternative for the same look and feel and I love that they are made out of silk.  



If you have been an avid reader of my blog, you know how much I love my Pour la Victoire Irina Pumps.  Well Refinery 29 has the best deal right now!  Spend $100 and get $200 in value to spend on the company website!  Go to the link http://reserve.refinery29.com/offer/137/pour-la-victoire.  

Regarding an earrings deal - I recently saw similar earrings to our Style Steal of the Week:

These Ippolita Earrings are $550 and our t+j Designs Teardrop Earrings are only $16 for this week only!!


Remember the deal ends on Saturday, October 15th!

What good deals have you found recently?
