t+j Designs Holiday Lookbook

It’s been SO crazy for me the past few weeks.  Holiday season is crazy just in general but as a retailer, we are insanely busy, which is a good problem to have of course!  I haven’t been able to put together all the posts that I’ve been wanting to.  I’ve been in Chicago all last week to prep and attend the holiday event for my jewelry/clothing line which went amazing.  It’s nice when people are able to touch and feel our items as it really makes a difference.  Being an online retailer is tough because most of our interactions with our customers are done over the computer or sometimes over the phone so to be able to actually talk to people who have shopped with us before or even to people who are just introduced to our line is so exciting for me! Of course, traveling during this season is not great and I came home with the flu.  I’ve been in bed for the past few days unable to do anything which is an awful feeling when you have a to-do list a mile long!  Anyway, just getting back into things and wanted to get a post up as I have missed blogging!

A few months ago I was in Chicago to shoot the holiday lookbook for t+j Designs and I wanted to share a few photos here as I’m so proud of how they turned out!


My sister and I put together a holiday lookbook that featured some of our favorite
entrepreneurial and successful business women that we admire.  Helen Berkun, who is a stylist and photographer, Christina Monley, who owns her own label Christina Karin, Jenn Lake who is the VP at Zapwater PR and Corri McFadden who owns EDrop Off.  The shoot was photographed by Kirsten Miccoli at her studio, who shot my sister and I a few months back.  We absolutely adore her work and she is wonderful to work with!


clutches which have been great sellers, I think everyone loves a bit of
bling during the holidays and not just for their jewelry!
All the girls in our jewelry, skirts and tees.
The gorgeous Corri in our Chain Armor Tassel Necklace and our Mini Crystal Bag

Helen looking fabulous in our Wing Crystal Earrings and Luxe Crystal Jacket.
Check out the rest of our lookbook and shop everything featured here!

We also shot a Blogger Lookbook with a few of our favorite Chicago bloggers, Mary of Sportsanista, Megan of Stylish and Scatterbrained and Johanna of 101 things I love.  I shot the majority of our photos and for the group photo our assistant shot them after I set everything up.

Me, Mary, Jen, Megan, Johanna

The girls looking so cute in our tees!  Mary is also wearing our sequin
maxi which has sold out multiple times since we launched it!  All of our
skirts are custom made for our line so it takes a little bit longer for
them production wise but so worth it.  The sequin fabric we use is
stretchy and comfortable and the sequins go from black to silver
depending on how the sequins lay.

Mary in our gray Pop the Champagne tee and Modern Glass Necklace (silver is sold out but gold is available)

Megan looking adorable in our Turqoise Skirt and Bejeweled Clutch.

My sister and I wearing our new jackets.  If you notice we love everything that’s jeweled and sparkly so of course we had to add some of that to our clothing!

You can see the full lookbook here and then shop the items featured here.
