Four New Tops, One Outfit, New Jewelry This Week at MaJe

This week, we unpacked some great new clothing and jewelry include four new tops (actually one top in four colors), one entire outfit, and new jewelry from two of your favorite artists.

You might recognize the top style as we’ve had it before. When I realized how pretty it looked on sizes 14 and 16, I decided to get more. It can be really tough, you’ve told me, to find pretty tops in that size that truly flatter your figure. Check it out:

Spruce Up Spring With Color Splashes

Spruce up spring with color splashes on your favorite black backdrop.

Spruce up spring outfits like this gray top with black leggings
A typical Northwest color palette

It’s simple and easy and doesn’t require too much thought – just black and black, or black with gray as we see here. But fight back and add some color in the form of a lovely scarf, for example! Scarves are also a perfect transition piece as we move from cold to warmer weather. Scarves keep the neck warm, making chilly days much easier to bear.

Spruce up spring with a charming red polka dot scarf
A red scarf perks up the whole thing

A berry red scarf with polka dots is just the thing to perk up all the gray and black in your wardrobe. This one just in from our favorite scarf gal, Birgit Moenig. Handpainted silk/rayon, this scarf goes for $58.

Or if you simply must stick to a neutral palette, add a splash of fun with this Italian knit scarf of white circles on a heather background. Charming, and just $68.

Spruce up spring with a coordinating scarf
Look how a scarf pulls top and bottom together

On the left is a simple top over black leggings – another common Northwest outfit choice. By adding a multi-colored scarf in complimentary hues, you achieve a more put-together style than without. This particular scarf is among the new deliveries just received from Birgit, who hand-paints silks like this so beautifully. Just $38.

Spruce up Spring on your Table

Sophisticated black and white with red dots

Black, white and red is a classic color combination. Linda Covey worked her magic in glass with that combo to create this sophisticated tray. Perfect for sushi, cheese and crackers, or your favorite cookies, this design is also a popular wedding gift. Four shapes and sizes available including this one for $45.

Spruce up spring with mid-century geometric patterns in black, red and white

For a completely different take on that classic color combo of black, red and white, check out this new tray with coordinating cocktail fork by Celeste Stuhring. Use it for any appetizer you want, and watch the pattern emerge as the appetizers get eaten up. $42.

Look how much it changes when you add some blue!

The simple addition of blue to the black, white and red transforms it yet again into another fun tray for your next party. Cocktail fork included, $42.

Give yourself permission to play with colors more this spring, and just see how it injects an upbeat note to your life.

Resolve To Be a Bright Spot in 2017

Resolve to be a bright spot in 2017! After all the tumult and confusion of 2016, we are faced with a choice: feel fearful and anxious, or spread cheer and happiness. I know it’s a cliche, but truly, you can “be the change you want to see” in the world.  I hope you’ll join me in that resolution today!

Be a Bright Spot: Smile!

Be a bright spot: smile!
Be a bright spot: SMILE!

Smiles beget smiles. Just try it and you’ll see. Smile and say hello to strangers and see what happens. Some will smile back and say hello. Others will look confused. Some may snarl back. Whatever happens, you’ll spread a piece of joy out into the world.

Be a Bright Spot – a Spot of Beauty

We all admire nature’s beauty. Try to be a piece of beauty yourself! Say no to the sweatshirt and sweatpants. Put on this instead (and be just as comfy too!).

A lovely outfit by our American designers

Testimony pants in “fatigue” and vest in “latte” are made of their soft French Terry. The bamboo top in “brick” fits sizes 0 – 12. Finish it off with a long necklace with a soft green stone. The simplicity of the lines, along with the pretty color combination make this outfit a bright spot of beauty, especially in Seattle with all its black and gray in the winter!

The popular “Reba” jacket in three colors

Be a Bright Spot of Fun

The “Reba” jacket by Testimony continues to be the top-selling jacket, and for good reasons: it looks great on many different body types. I’ve got it in all three of these colors right now, including from left to right chocolate, dusk and latte. Made of French terry, this jacket washes up beautifully in the washing machine, which gives it an A+ rating for easy care. Be a bright spot of beauty when you choose to wear this instead of your hoody!

Be a bright spot with the Lizzy James jewelry can be worn as either a bracelet or a necklace.
Wear this jewelry as either a bracelet or a necklace.

Our newest jewelry collection is from Lizzy James, whose clever designs let you wear each item as either a necklace or a bracelet. On the model on the right photo, you’ll see two separate bracelets as well as a third worn as a necklace. This is in the classic style featuring 4 strands of leather with silver curved tubes that create fascinating movement around your  neck.

I have two like this in stock, as well as many other choices. Both are 20″ necklaces, which fit a wrist size close to 6″.

Share a bright spot of fun and beauty when wearing these intriguing pieces of jewelry.

When you make a resolution to be a bright spot, I know you’ll reap amazing rewards as people in turn become a bright spot for you. Let’s make it a pact for 2017!

New Jackets, Scarves Now Here!

Three Great New Jackets

A great jacket is a wonderful thing since it’s the one thing we wear more than any other and that everyone sees regularly. We’ve got three great new jackets for you this week, so get yourself a great one while the getting is good!

New jackets like this "Reba" jacket, in chocolate brown, made in Los Angeles
The Reba Jacket in Chocolate by Testimony Los Angeles

Yes, you’ve seen this before, but it sold out really fast! I just got a few more. This “Reba” jacket is a big hit because it looks so good on nearly everyone. The chocolate brown is a wonderful, rich color, so don’t wait long to get yours! Adding new jackets like this to your closet is a great idea!

At first glance, everyone thinks this fabric is suede. It’s actually French Terry, which is 94% cotton and 6% spandex. Naturally, that makes it machine washable so you can enjoy a great jacket that’s also easy to care for. It doesn’t wrinkle much either, making it an excellent travel companion. The mid-weight fabric is just about perfect for our moderate northwest weather. 

In the new jackets category the Reba jacket is now available in this lovely crimson
Go for the BOLD! Get the Reba in crimson!

Because the Reba is so awesome, we got it in crimson too, and what a lovely shade of red it is. A better statement jacket is hard to find, so don’t hesitate if this is the color that speaks to you. New jackets in this color don’t come along often, so seize the moment! Alas, but these are sold out and not available in this color anymore this year. Sorry!

A Very Fall Combo

Also in the new jackets category is this brick top and Mahogany jacket by Angelrox
Fall colors of brick and mahogany in this great pair from Angelrox

Check out the lovely color combination here, so reminiscent of colorful fall leaves and bare branches. Angelrox creates coordinates in over 40 colors, so you can get a great combination for yourself. If you look good in fall colors, then look no further! Here we have a “ballet tunic” in brick, paired with a long light jacket in mahogany. It’s great with jeans of course, as well as going dressier as shown here with a camel skirt.

It’s a Scarf! It’s a Pocket!

New jackets need new scarves like this soft scarf with its own built-in pocket
This nifty scarf has its own built-in storage pocket!

This wonderfully soft jersey scarf not only comes in terrific colors, it also folds right into its own zipper pocket. The zipper is in side seam, so it disappears when you wear it. Use it to store your license, credit cards and a key so you can eliminate the need for a purse on your walks this winter. Now available in black, denim blue, purple and tea tree (the mustard color). Machine washable! A great travel companion, too – use the pocket to store your passport!

Style Tips

New jackets are great, but don't wear a short jacket with a tunic - make sure it's longer than the tunic
Choose the right jacket for your outfit

We are Northwest women, which means our closet is at least half jackets or sweaters or some type of wrap. As such, there’s no excuse for finishing off your outfit with the wrong jacket. Tunics are here to stay for the mature woman, making it a rather big deal to ensure that your closet has at least one longer jacket. Pairing a tunic with a short jacket, as Manya has fearlessly demonstrated on the left, cuts things off in all the wrong spots. Make sure your jacket or sweater is longer than the longest part of the tunic!

And that’s it for the week of October 10 here in downtown Edmonds! To stay on top of all our latest deliveries, be sure to follow us on facebook!

Getting Crabby In Edmonds With Crab Art

When you live on the water like we do in Edmonds, there’s a likely chance you enjoy eating crab. We can catch them right off our pier down on the waterfront a mere four blocks away! So naturally, our artists enjoy making crab art too!

The Crab In Art

Crab Art like these sculptural pieces are such fun
Fused glass and steel sculptural crabs

Brand new work from our glass and steel artist, Celeste Stuhring, these large and small sculptural crabs are self-standing. A great example of crab art! The large crab measures 11″ at the widest part, and 7.5″ from front claw to back claw. It stands 3″ tall at the highest point (it’s taller at the front claws).

The small crab is 7″ at the widest part, and 4.5″ from front claw to back claw. It stands 2.5″ tall at the tallest part (front claws). These are sold out at the moment. Only the large is still available.

These sculptural works can be indoor or outdoor. If outdoors, the steel will gradually rust, adding a lovely finish to the piece.

Crab Art As Functional Art

Functional crab art - bowl on stand
Large Crab Bowl on Stand

If you think crab is delicious, then you might also think crab and artichoke dip is delicious. Personally, I’m quite addicted to it. This gorgeous fused glass bowl, complete with a charming stand, is the perfect serving dish for it!  Of course, it is also great for salsa or any other dip too.

The dish is 12″ x 10″, with the bowl part 5.5″ in diameter and 1.75″ deep. The wrought iron stand makes it 4″ high.

Crab Art as night light
Fused Glass Crab Night Light

Avoid stubbing your toes on the way to the bathroom in the middle of the night with this adorable crab art night light! This particular one sold on 8/4, but if you want one of your own, just let me know and we’ll order one for you!

Crab Art candle shield
Crab Candle shield, front and side view

For the candle lovers out there, how about this adorable fused glass and steel candle shield?  The steel is open behind the glass so when the candle is lit, it glows through the glass in the center.  A built-in candle stand with attached votive holder (see the side view) makes it easy to arrange. While similar, no two are alike.

And Now, For the Wearable Art

Trio of new pieced fabric scarves by Susie Howell
Trio of new scarves by Susie Howell

Susie Howell pieces beautiful fabrics together to make one-of-a-kind scarves like these three here. No two alike, and such fun to wear.  These (except the turquoise/yellow one which sold on 8/4)  and many more can now be found at MaJe!

A smashing summer outfit
A smashing summer outfit

Summer’s not over yet! Enjoy the last days of warmth and sunshine with this charming and attractive outfit.  The skirt is by Testimony, made of their soft French Terry fabric. It’s a “faux wrap” skirt in a seafoam color. The top is a white bamboo A-line tank from Angelrox. The scarf that pulls everything together is made from two vintage silk panels with vintage lace at the bottom (another awesome scarf by Susie Howell).  A charming necklace by Seattle’s Jem’s Jewelry adorns the blouse.  The finishing touch is the white hat. It’s a bowler style that looks good on nearly everyone. It’s crushable and packable, and features SunGuard to protect your skin. Perfect for summer gatherings!

The Best Travel Wardrobe

Packing light makes life so much easier on vacation. The best travel wardrobe is not only attractive, it is also easy to assemble and care for. Our mix-and-match options from Maine’s Angelrox answer all those questions for you.  Plus, they are so cute you’ll wear them back home too.

First, choose a color palette from over 40 solid and stripe options available. Our examples go for a range of neutral tones.

The best travel wardrobe consists of easy to match coordinates
Coordinated outifts are great for travel

Both photos feature four integrated separates that can be worn multiple ways, letting you create a different look each day with the same basics. Both models are wearing the “playsuit” – leggings with an overskirt that can double as a bodysuit ($98). Layer a blouse over that. Many styles available from tank tops, to cap sleeve, to 3/4 sleeve versions, depending on the temperature of your destination ($50 – $88).

Over that, both models sport different colors of The Wrap (see video below) ($158 – $178). Finally, both have topped it off with a Cardigan ($158), also in different colors.

And voila! The best travel wardrobe can be yours!

The best travel wardrobe consists of easy coordinates
The Playsuit with the Mock Turtleneck

Here’s an unencumbered photo of the “Playsuit”, the leggings with overskirt. Manya’s got two pairs in different colors. Super comfortable and good looking too. This model paired them with a mock turtleneck – great for a vacation destination that might be cool in the evening.

The best travel wardrobe consists of versatile coordinates
Two more ways to wear The Wrap

On the left, the model is wearing The Wrap as a tunic over the “Playsuit.” On the right, it’s a vest, also over the playsuit.

The best travel wardrobe includes versatile pieces
the Wrap as a dress, worn two different ways

The Wrap can be worn so many different ways – you are only limited by your imagination.  Check out the video below to get a few.

In the video, the model is wearing the wrap in white with a small black stripe. Underneath she’s wearing the “Playsuit” in black and a “Ballet Tunic”, also in black.

Remember, this comes in over 40 solids and stripes, offering a wide range of options for the best travel wardrobe. We have swatches for you to see the color best.  Come on by and see the colors, see examples of each item, and play with it a bit!
