Dear Police

To put it simply, Jack Vartanian's rose gold handcuffs are to die for. If you've ever seen The Rachel Zoe project (I'm personally a huge fan), I'm sure you've seen these golden cuffs on a previous episode. They were featured as a pretty and pretty sexy present from Rodger. If only they didn't cost an arm and a leg I would snag myself a pair.

Happy H&M Tuesday

One of the best perks of a new job is shopping for new clothes, in which I did today and picked up some lovely finds. Luckily my new job is so cool I get to wear whatever I want! Who loves ponchos? I do now. Deprived of H&M my whole life and other delightfully inexpensive shops, it's pure love shopping in Chicago. It's true, I did pass Giorgio Armani with a tear of joy (and pain) in my eye this afternoon, but mostly fell in love with a few basics from H&M. Happy Tuesday everyone! It's beginning to look a lot like fall... if not outside at least the window displays have me hopeful.


I have blue on the brain. An obsession with blue. Blue for summer, fall, winter and spring. Tessa and I found this 1950's blue sequin vest at Wild Man Vintage earlier this year. As soon as I saw it glitter out of the corner of my eye, I had to have it. Where and when exactly would one wear this blue vest? Anytime! It's no doubt that sequins draw attention, especially the mermaid dream vest above, but why is it that one must dull down their attire for the sake of others? Is it just to make sure we don't stick out too much, that we actually want to blend in? I hope not. Individuality is something sacred around tstreet, Tessa and I value originality, creativity, and fun when it comes to style. Big statement pieces are not only found in our closets but also a must for any personal wardrobe. Our advice? Don't be afraid to stick out and be different, wear what you want, wear what you like, be bold and most importantly be confident.

Summer No More

I would like to think that summer has faded and fall has begun but we all know that can't be true with the 100 degree weather here in Lawrence. But here is a little preview into fall. I'm obsessed with these 5 inch, blueberry leather, platform booties from Jeffery Campbell. They are $182 available online.

Free People's August Catalog. The shots took place on a 7 day journey in jealous.

Smoking is Prohibited

The “smoking is prohibited” collection by Insinuo. The designer's inspiration...the new law prohibiting smoking indoors. Not sure if this is a good or a bad design idea, what it's promoting, or whether it's just for fun? Check out more information about his collections via notjustalabel.

Friday Yoga

Wes Anderson Tribute

It's hard to imagine a better combination of actors, music, costume design and creativity then that of Wes Anderson Films. So here's to Friday, good music, and my inspiration for what to wear out this evening... I'm thinking along the lines of an anthropology jumpsuit I bought over a year ago and need to track down somewhere in my closet. This tribute to W.A. may also have something to do with his use of Nico's, "These Days" in the Royal Tenenbaums Soundtrack- I've been listening to it every morning for the past week. Enjoy. The 60's will never be dead. Happy Friday.

Janelle Dry: A Brilliant Beauty

Janelle Dry Photography
I've introduced Janelle Dry on T-Street before, but because she is constantly producing more and more great work, it seems only natural to share her work as soon as she's finished shooting it! Her photos are mesmerising and have morphed, combining her own personal vision and unique style into the mix. It appears that Miss Janelle is becoming an even more brilliant and beautiful artist everyday. What's the word from T-Street? We absolutely love it! As a friend I'm ecstatic and so happy Janelle has found her true calling. Check out more of her stuff here!

We Are Animals

Wrangler's, "We Are Animals Campaign" gets down and dirty with their new fall line and their instincts couldn't be more on. Alongside Nylon Magazine's September Jean Issue and the denim buzz circulating around the industry, Wrangler is making its biggest comeback yet. Both the male and female fall layouts are rugged, sexy, and all about the jean. Wrangler's ad campaign however, seems to be going in the most primal direction possible... and possibly a little too animalistic for some. The video featured here is part of the "Stop Thinking" portion of the campaign, but it's more graphic sister ad video, "The Red Campaign" can be found by clicking here.

Summer Song

Wanderer moon
smiling a
faintly ironical smile
at this
brilliant, dew-moistened
summer morning,—
a detached
sleepily indifferent

smile, a
wanderer's smile,—
if I should
buy a shirt
your color and
put on a necktie sky-blue
where would they carry me?

Blue Bird

When I visited Keely in Colorado, I came across this headband in one of the many vintage stores we like to go to. It makes any casual outfit more unique and I'm excited to finally wear it out.
It is officially the second night out in Lawrence and it is going to be an adventure.


Brilliantly bone chilling. A cold front that's bound to shake the world. Can Chanel do no wrong? It appears this way. Enjoy the warm weather weekend and this frosty treat to keep you cool.

morning glory

There's no better start to the the day then a morning workout. And as much as I love Chicago and seeing so many people out for a run on a Friday morning, Colorado is by far my favorite state. I'm pretty bias having grown up there and all, but in the summer time Colorado weather trumps all. Happy Friday! Stay posted for more tstreet pre-weekend finds and favs. Just thought I'd get your attention good and early.

Celebrity of the week

I've always admired Christina Ricci's style- both on screen (choosing continuously cool roles) and in regards to her wardrobe and make-up. I really hope she dresses herself but if not her stylist is a genius. My fashion inspiration for the week... Miss Ricci. -k


Gucci's spankin new fragrance campaign... I wonder if it smells like burning rubber? Hopefully not.

Ever since I moved back to Lawrence I have been constantly busy, so I am happy to finally be able to post. Today, I am home sick...I'm kind of happy that I will be able to relax in bed on the first gloomy day in Lawrence so far.
