These days, “green” signifies more than a color – it’s also a lifestyle. Natural fibers are a big part of that, and our newest collection from Zen Knits exemplifies that. Check it out.

Green gardens green style like this seafoam green bolero from Testimony Los Angeles
The seafoam bolero from Testimony

Sizes



Testimony Los Angeles is our top-selling line at MaJe Gallery, and for good reasons too. Top quality fabric that’s flattering and easy to care for. What more could a girl ask for? Take the bolero we have here. The color for summer is this awesome seafoam – a shade of green that looks good on quite a few of us. And the bolero shape is excellent for those of us who are a little shorter in stature – say 5’6″ and below. Manya is 5’4″ and she has three of these in various colors. The proportions work great with us shorter types. At just $98, it’s a piece you’ll keep in your closet for years. The seafoam color brightens up the summer wardrobe. Wear it with black as shown here, or jeans, or navy, or khaki – lots of options. A simple white or ivory shell is all you need, and our bamboo tank in white is a great option.

Jewelry Tutorial

I often get asked how to accessorize, so from time to time I offer a tutorial on how to do just that. Take the photo above, of the seafoam bolero over a white tank top and black pants. It’s a very simple outfit, and is just fine all by itself. But look what happens when you add a great piece of jewelry…

Green gardens green style wear a long necklace with coordinating color to tie it all together
A long necklace ties it all together



Compare the two photos above and see how the addition of the long necklace brings the three pieces (i.e. pants, top, jacket) together with ease. If you’re on the taller side of short, say 5’3″ – 5’6″, this look will be a real winner for you. This particular necklace in one-of-a-kind by Poppy Designs, with green opal stones that are a near perfect match for the seafoam color of the jacket. $115.

Green gardens green style wear this necklace doubled up if you are shorter in stature
Wear the same necklace this way if you are shorter

Are you shorter, so feel like your jewelry needs to also be shorter? Never fear! This very same necklace can be doubled around your neck and worn as shown here for a lovely effect that works great on those of us with shorter stature. $115.

Snazzy new tops and scarves arrived this week at MaJe Gallery. Check it out.

Snazzy New Tops

Snazzy new tops like this black and white cutie from Color Me Cotton
Textured Black and White Top

Sizes



The textured cotton/rayon blend tops from Color Me Cotton always sell out fast. Why? They are snazzy, flattering and comfortable. Take this black and white number for example. Three-quarter sleeves, longer in the back to cover the behind, generous in the torso to hide love handles – what more could a girl ask for? Machine washable too. $89.

Snazzy New Tops like this flattering piece from Color Me Cotton
More textured fabric, different color and style

Sizes



Here’s the same fabric, but this time in “zinc”, a blue-ish gray that pairs beautifully with Testimony’s pocket pants in “cloud.” This top is longer in the back, with insets on the side to make room for extra weight in the middle. Full-length sleeves and a scoop neck. Very flattering on most bodies. Come on in and try one on to see for yourself. Machine washable. $89.

Snazzy new tops like this black linen jacket from Click Color Me Cotton
Black linen top that’s also a jacket

Sizes



This light weight linen top is great as a top, but you can also wear it like a jacket, as shown here over a white tank top. It’s longer in the back with three quarter sleeves and a lapel collar. Loose fitting, it works great for both purposes. Paired here with a white bamboo tank and the Testimony pocket pants in “cloud.” $98.

Snazzy New Scarves

Snazzy New Scarves by Susie Howell are one-of-a-kind
A few snazzy new scarves from Susie Howell

Everett’s Susie Howell finds gorgeous fabrics, cuts them on the bias, then pieces them together to create uniquely beautiful scarves. Cutting them on the bias, they drape elegantly no matter how you choose to drape them on your body. These are six from a new collection of twelve. You have to come in to see the others. No two alike. Incorporating silk, lace, vintage fabrics, specialty fabrics and more, these are wearable works of art. $89. Here are three close-ups and one way to wear them.

Snazzy new scarves by Susie Howell like this one in black, white and gray
Black, white and gray scarf by Susie Howell.



This extra-long scarf can be worn a myriad of ways. The black, white and gray fabric make it an especial winner for the northwest wardrobe. Shown here in the “one-twist-two” technique (come in for a demo), it dresses up jeans and a T-shirt, as well as a professional wardrobe. $89.

Go with brights!

Wear a lot of black? This snazzy new scarf by Susie Howell will add that splash of happy color. Mixing both warm and cool colors, it is very pleasing to the eye.

Two Great Ways To Make a Subtle Statement

This week, we look at two great ways to make a subtle statement in your personal style.

Subtle Statement: Start With A Great Top

Subtle Statement style includes a pretty top that unexpected and bold. From Inside Out Everyday.
Front and back views of the new “Paris” top

Sizes



Just in from Inside Out, this new top with the “Paris” print in front, and silvery-blue super soft fabric in the sleeves and back. The straight hem will please those of you who dislike asymmetrical hems. With breathing room through the torso, it leaves a flattering appearance with exquisite drape. Machine washable, designed and made in Florida. $84.

Trying to avoid black? Then pair it, as we’ve done here, with the fabulous Testimony Pocket Pant in “cloud.” Or, perhaps you’re looking for a new, light-weight black pant with a little pizzazz.

Subtle Statement style includes pants with unexpected details from Inside Out Everyday
Black pant with shirring at the ankle

Sizes



This new pant has the great detail of shirring at the ankle. It’s narrow, but not tight, therefore it’s not a legging. Rather, the light-weight fabric drapes beautifully and comfortably, revealing a little fun at the ankle. This also looks great with the Paris top shown above. $78.

Subtle Statement: Great Jewelry

Subtle Statement jewelry like the Taj necklace from JillBeads
Make a statement with the “Taj” necklace



Statement jewelry never had it so good as our new collection from Colorado’s JillBeads. Here is the “Taj” necklace, with multi-colored enamels, crystals and beads. It’s 17″ – 20″ long, and turns your favorite jeans and T-shirt into a statement. At just $68, you can’t go wrong. Of course, this would look awesome at a party with a fancy dress, too.

Subtle Statement jewelry from JillBeads like this two-sided bracelet
The two-sided bracelet from JillBeads



Yes, that’s right. This is the SAME bracelet  – just turn it over for a completely different color scheme. Subtle statement jewelry is a knockout with JillBeads’ great bracelets.  At 7 1/2″ long, it fits most wrists perfectly. Again, statement jewelry at a great price: $49.

Subtle Statement jewelry includes this versatile 3-strand, reversible necklace by JillBeads
Wear this necklace SIX ways



Make a subtle statement with this reversible necklace. It coordinates beautifully with the bracelet above, featuring the same colors and shapes. This 3-strand necklace is 1) Reversible (see both images above for colors of both sides), 2) or wear each strand individually. It’s super cool, and also a mere $68. Made in Colorado by JillBeads, it has enamels, crystals and beads to give it all the colors. 17″ long with 3″ extender.

More JillBeads selections are available in-store, so stop by to see them all, and choose the one you like best to make your Subtle Statement.

Testimony Jackets Are The BEST!

Testimony jackets are the best.

Why? They’re flattering, comfortable, made of soft fabric, wash well, and stand the test of time. Here are three Testimony jackets now available at MaJe Gallery.

Testimony jackets like this summer's shrug are now available in light blue, or "sky"
The Testimony shrug in “sky”

Sizes



Testimony jackets are noted for the simple styling details that transform a plain jacket into something understated and stylish. In the case of the Testimony shrug, the ruched sleeves are so unusual and cool. The shawl collar and rounded hem are flattering to all.  Long enough in the back to cover your butt, and it even has pockets! Made of their super-soft French Terry (96% cotton, 4% spandex), it is very comfortable to wear. $148.

Testimony jackets like the Testimony Victorian Jacket are now available in "dusk", a denim lookalike.
The Victorian jacket in “dusk”

Among the various Testimony jackets, the Victorian has been part of the line for several years now. Why? Because it looks so good on so many figures, and can replace the staid blazer in your closet with a much more upbeat look. Now available in “dusk”, a mineral wash navy that looks like denim, the French Terry fabric is much softer and more flexible than actual denim, making it that much more comfortable to wear. $148. This is sold out at the moment, but more will be in soon. Stay tuned!

Testimony jackets like the Testimony Alexis Blazer now available in dusk.
The Alexis Blazer in Dusk

Sizes



And now, for those who like a straight hem rather than rounded: the Alexis Blazer. Unusual in Testimony jackets, this has a boxier styling, which some of you have been begging for. Falling just at the hip, the simple details in front turn around for some great lines in the back. Nice pockets, and now available in “dusk”, a mineral wash navy that looks like denim. $178.

Funky New Jewelry

We get to introduce a new artist this week, Lindsey from Portland, OR, with her Luscious Jewelry.

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.

Spruce up spring with a scarf with artsy circles on heather background

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

Options




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

Spruce up spring with striking black dishes with white and red accents
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

Easy Elegance Special Occasion Dresses

Finding perfect special occasion dresses can be a challenge. Things to consider include daytime vs. nighttime, level of casual vs. dressy, and climate conditions. Here at MaJe Gallery, we look to the casual elegance of the classy URU line, designed and made in California. Their quality hand-dyed, textured silk fabric with bias-cut designs are perfect for any number of occasions, and as a result, meet your confident, elegant yet casual approach to life.

Special Occasion Dresses

 

Special occasion dresses like this textured silk skirt and top by California's URU
Nothing says elegant like this long skirt with seafoam top in textured silk

Choices



California’s URU has hand-dyed gorgeous textured silk for many years, incorporating bias cut designs that therefore are one-size fits most. In truth, these designs look great on all kinds of body shapes in the 6 – 16 size range. I know that is hard to believe, but you’ll just have to stop by and try a few pieces on to see what I’ve been seeing for years now. While not technically a “dress”, it is an excellent choice in the category of special occasion dresses.

In this image, we have a long, bias-cut skirt in the Pacific Blue color textured silk paired with a seafoam Cruise Top. The top features 3/4 sleeves and a clever woven/layered pattern at the neck. The top falls to the hips. Especially relevant is that all URU clothing is one-size-fits-most, working great on bodies from size 6 to 16.

The skirt has sold, but I can easily order it again for anyone who wants it. Just email me or call 425-776-3778.

Special Occasion Dresses might include this skirt and top from California's URU
Here’s the same skirt with a different top

Choices



Notice the beautiful movement in these two bias-cut pieces from URU. Even on the mannequin, you can see the lovely drape and flow captured in their signature textured silk fabric. Since each piece is hand-dyed, as a result you get unique, saturated colors you won’t find elsewhere. Most noteworthy, all URU pieces are cut and draped in such a way as to look great on a wide variety of body shapes from size 6 – 16, giving a whole new meaning to “one size fits most.”

The buttoned “Venice” top is a classic in their line for many years now, shown here in “Greek Blue”. Wear it simply as a top, or leave it unbuttoned as a jacket over a tank. Thus we have another example of a great choice in the category of special occasion dresses.

Check out this fun variation of ways to wear the Venice Top, shown simply as a top in the photo above this one. I paired it with the URU textured silk bias-cut tank top in Pacific Blue on the left, and with the Color Me Cotton bamboo tank in white on the right.

In addition, when the weather is warmer, you can drop the “jacket” and simply pair the bias-cut silk skirt by URU with a tank top for a more casual approach to the occasion.  I’m showing the two tanks here without the Venice Top as seen in the photo above this one. On the left is the same Pacific Blue dye, dyed in the same lot for an exact match. The bias-cut tank drapes beautifully on the body. On the right is the much more casual white bamboo tank by Color Me Cotton. This gives us an excellent choice for a more casual event requiring special occasion dresses.

Go For The Gusto

The unique top shown here is a collage of paintings by ancient masters, and even one by Georgia O’Keefe. Next, they dye it in Pacific Blue to match the skirt perfectly. I paired it on the left with the bias-cut tank top in the same color. On the right, close all buttons are to reveal a simple, long top over the bias-cut skirt. One size fits most sizes 6 – 16. This is perfect for many events that require special occasion dresses.
