Tegan & Sara – front and back

Do you love Tegan and Sara inside and out? Well now you can wear your love on the front and back as well!

As part of their 2010 European Tour merch set, the lovely ladies have released this way cute t-shirt with Tegan on the front and Sara on the back. Hmm, that sounds nice doesn’t it? OK, maybe that was a little weird. But it’s a cute t-shirt and you all should buy it!

Steal Tegan & Sara’s look

With the release of Tegan & Sara’s new album, Sainthood, there’s a bunch of new photos of the twinsome emerging, and with the new photos comes a slew of conversation around what they’re wearing. I found this photo, below, on a T&S forum where discussion was raging about their outfits and their make-up. Some people are loving it, some people not.

I think they both look great in this photo! Their maturity and femininity really shines through and they prove they can make simple look really stylish. I love that they’re wearing make-up, and fitted jeans and tailored jackets. As someone who would happily change outfits 5 times a day, I love seeing my favorite lesbians mixing things up and moving beyond jeans and t-shirts.
If you love the look Tegan & Sara have got going on above, I’ve tracked down a few websites that can help you steal their look for yourself!
If, like Tegan, you enjoy a good blazer you can’t go past this beautiful TopShop Kate Moss Grosgrain Blazer available for $160. A good black jacket never, ever goes out of style so pay a little more and invest in one that will look good after a lot of wear and quite a few trips to the dry cleaners.

In this photo, Sara has jazzed up the check shirt with jeans combo and made it look more girly by tucking her shirt into her mid-rise jeans and bringing it all together with  brown belt. It’s a super-simple look to pull together, and you can have it for only $120 for the whole outfit.

Start off with a long (easier to tuck!) black and white check shirt, like this one from Dorothy Perkins which you can pick up for only $40.

If you’re one of the many lesbians who giggled like a schoolgirl while squealing “I want one!

Hope you find one you like!

January 6 – The Orpheum

Tegan and Sara


One of the most celebrated and Beloved forces in modern music, Canadian pop-rock icons Tegan and Sara will release their eagerly awaited sixth studio album, entitled SAINTHOOD, on October 27th on Sire/Vapor Records/Warner Music Canada. The first single “Hell” will be available serviced to radio on October 2nd and will be available on iTunes on October 6, 2009.
SAINTHOOD was produced by Death Cab for Cutie’s Chris Walla (who also produced 2007’s critically applauded THE CON) and Howard Redekopp (who produced 2004’s groundbreaking effort SO JEALOUS) and mixed by Grammy Award winner Dave Sardy (Oasis, Primal Scream, Marilyn Manson).

The follow-up to 2007’s THE CON, SAINTHOOD addresses secular themes of devotion, delusion, and exemplary behavior in the pursuit of love and relationships. The songs, Tegan and Sara say, were “inspired by emotional longing and the quiet actions we hope may be noticed by the objects of our affection. SAINTHOOD is about obsession with romantic ideals. In the service of relationships we practice being perfect. We practice our SAINTHOOD in the hope that we will be rewarded with adoration. As we are driven to become anything for someone else, we sometimes become martyrs for our cause.

Love, like faith, can never be held in an individual’s hands. But the story of a great love affair – especially one that is unrequited or has ended too soon – can be woven like scripture or a bedtime story. And so the themes of SAINTHOOD are tied together by this simple title, borrowed, with great respect, from the lyrics of the Leonard Cohen song ‘Came So Far For Beauty’: ‘I practiced all my SAINTHOOD / I gave to one and all / But the rumors of my virtue / They moved her not at all.’”

Tegan and Sara began recording SAINTHOOD in May at the legendary Sound City Studios in Van Nuys, CA, where Tom Petty, Nirvana, and Fleetwood Mac have all recorded. They finished laying down tracks at Seattle’s Two Sticks Audio, owned by Death Cab drummer Jason McGerr.

Tegan and Sara have also recently completed their first ever set of books, titled ON, IN, AT. The three-book set chronicles different time periods in writing and photographs from the past year of Tegan and Sara‘s lives: their 2008 US national tour, their 2009 Australian tour, and a joint writing session in New Orleans for the new album. The books will be released in conjunction with the SAINTHOOD pre-sale, with more information coming soon at teganandsara.com.
