Fashion, champagne and good friends make for the perfect combination. If you weren’t able to make it, check out some photos from the party below:

Janet with her adorable date for the party, her 3 year old daughter and youngest fan of t+j Designs 🙂 she picked out that rainbow necklace herself as soon as she got inside! She definitely takes after her fabulous mommy.

t+j Designs 5My girls from the t+j Designs Chicago team! Since we are an e-commerce business we love doing events like this and being able to connect with customers and fans in person. It’s so fun to see people try on the designs and shop the jewelry.  Thank you to Shannon and Hope for helping me everyday.

We greatly appreciate the support to everyone who came out and had such a fun night with everyone! Stay tuned for more details on our next event in Chicago on May 13th!

Luxe vs Less

Luxe for less defines our brand and our style. We aim to provide luxe, on-trend designs at an affordable price point as we believe every woman deserves to feel glamorous. Below are a few styles we’re loving right now and we’ve compared the luxe versions to our lesser price options so you can see just how much you’d save without sacrificing any style!


The lariat silhouette necklace is trending and we love the addition of a whimsical star. This luxe version is by Jennifer Zeuner. But at almost $120 less, you can get the same look with ours found here! (Also available it in silver)


Mint + crystals = perfection!! Achieve this stunning style with our Mint Lucite Bejeweled clutch for almost $600 less than this Gedebe version. Shop all of the other colors available in our lesser price option here!


If you know us, you know we LOVE polka dots. A classic print that is essential in our wardrobes. This Dolce and Gabbana skirt is $900 more than our gorgeous sequin version! Not a maxi-length girl? Shop our pencil or mini lengths!


This all over heart print is adorable and feminine. This dress by Chloe is almost $350 more than our printed top that is currently on sale – and also available in navy!


Ear crawlers are definitely trending and we love the combination of crystals and pearls. This Erickson Beamon version is almost $100 more than our Pearl Stud and Crawler for only $38!

7 Days, 7 Styles

We design all of the pieces in our brand specifically to achieve the idea of affordable glamour for every day life. Although there are stressful days and our schedules always seem to be jam packed, making an effort to create a unique look that you feel good about and that fits your personal style can make a total difference of how productive your day goes and your overall self-confidence! Here is a simple inspirational guide for a week full of style, so that you feel on-trend and fabulous no matter where your day make take you.


Feel polished on a hectic Monday with this pearl necklace. It has a trendy twist and feels preppy paired with stripes and polka dots.


On Tuesday, this glam necklace is the perfect addition for a dinner date. And for a day full of meetings mid-week, a delicate pre-layered style makes accessorizing one less thing on your to-do list!


Feel cute and comfortable for running errands on Thursday with this “Pay Me In Manolos & Mojitos” tank and your go-to boyfriend jeans. TGIF! On Friday, feel effortlessly chic and ready to go in this black and white check max skirt for much deserved drinks with friends.


For a friends wedding on Saturday, feel put together and fashion forward with a feather skirt or crystal hair accessory from our NEW Wedding Collection that launched this week! On Sunday, channel your bohemian vibes with this Deco Crystal Sun Ray Necklace tucked under the collar of a chambray for brunch.
