Imagine Spring! A Splash of Color For You

I see green sprouts coming up and crocuses blooming here and there. The early camellias are in blossom. We spring forward in time this Sunday. All the signs are here that spring is imminent! And we’re none too impatient for it here at MaJe Gallery because we’re getting new deliveries with a splash of color for you.

A Splash of Color For You

Splash of color for you like this spring green cowl top from Color Me Cotton
Spring Green in Soft Fabric


California’s Color Me Cotton made their ultra-popular cowl top in a spring green for 2018. This tunic-length top feels super soft against your skin because the fabric is a rayon blend. Wide 3/4 sleeves leave room for movement in the arms. The flattering design hides everything you want to hide in the torso. Just in a few days ago and already flying out the door! Also coming in a pretty blue shade in a few weeks. If you’re interested in that one, let me know so I can set it aside before anyone else snags it. Just $89. Machine Washable and great for travel.

Splash of color for you might be this Melody top from Testimony Los Angeles
Navy heather “Melody” top from Testimony


If you prefer a shorter top rather than a tunic, look no further than this new piece from California’s Testimony called the “Melody” top. The neckline is close to a crew neck, which will please those of you who don’t like a deep plunge. The best part is that the ruffles around the torso actually offer a slimmer profile by disguising what’s beneath! 3/4 sleeves are a great year-round length, too. Machine washable rayon jersey fabric is nice and soft. Great for travel. Just $98.

It’s a Top, It’s a Jacket!

Splash of color for spring might be a bright top beneath this black linen top jacket by Color Me Cotton
Black Linen Top-Jacket


One way to think about packing for a trip is to collect black basics, then add a splash of color to change it up. This black linen top can be worn alone as a top, or left open with a tank or shell beneath to add variety to your closet or suitcase. Paired here with a HaZe tank in geranium and a Susie Howell lined black pencil skirt in medium. It’s comfortable, classy and easy to pack. The linen top-jacket is $98, the tank is $28, and the skirt is $89.

Two Great Jackets

Testimony Los Angeles is our go-to choice for jackets from spring to fall due to the perfect weight of the cotton french terry fabric. Here are two excellent new choices for you.

Splash of color for you might include Testimony's new Coco jacket in Poppy
Testimony’s Coco jacket in “Poppy”


“Poppy” is the vibrant new orange/red shade from Testimony Los Angeles. What better way to add a happy color to your wardrobe? The Coco jacket is a short, boxy jacket similar in look to a jean jacket, but much softer and stretchy – which means it is super comfortable to wear. It has pockets too! It has all the wonderful details that Testimony is famous for. Shown here over the “Melody” top I showed you above.  Just $159. Machine washable.

Splash of color might be this lovely blue Leona Jacket from Testimony Los Angeles
Testimony’s “Leona” jacket in azure


Calling all lovers of BLUE! Another color Testimony is offering now is this lovely blue called “azure.” It’s even prettier in person, so stop by to check it out and see for yourself. This longer jacket falls above the knee and has a lovely drape along with nice pockets. An asymmetrical hem overlay in the back keeps you looking great both coming and going. Made of their delicious cotton french terry fabric, it is soft, stretchy, great for travel and machine washable. Shown here over the “Melody” top I showed you above. Just $189.

Splash of color like the Leona jacket from Testimony Los Angeles in azure
The “Leona” jacket, buttoned

Here’s that same jacket buttoned up with the button on the side and beneath the collar. It’s a great jacket! I have it in black right now too, if you’d rather have that.

More spring items are arriving weekly, so stay tuned and you’ll get a new update next week!

Art You Can Wear: Circle Vest Video

We are so pleased to welcome award-winning felt wear designer Patti Barker to MaJe Gallery, bringing you her art you can wear. Using the “nuno felting” technique,  all of Patti’s designs are produced with felted seams (no sewing). The fabric and the garment are created simultaneously, using wet felting techniques. What makes them unique is her hand-dying of elements used. She also hand-spins her embellishing art yarns and totally enjoys the playfulness they bring to the process.

Art You Can Wear

One of Patti’s most popular designs is the circle vest. We have two in stock right now. You can wear it four ways. Check it out…

Stop by to see our seafoam green vest, and our sepia vest. Have Patti make one for you in your favorite color! They are about $240.

Here’s one of Patti’s dresses, worn by Manya over an olive top and sage green tights.

It fits sizes 6 – 10 with ease. Manya can also order the leggings for you if you want the complete look. One-of-a-kind. $210.

This tunic is smaller, and can fit sizes 4 – 8. It’s worn here over a 3/4 sleeve T-shirt in wine, and black leggings. It’s so interesting and unique! I’ve got it in the window now, and so many people are coming in to get a closer look. One-of-a-kind. $210.

Outfit Of The Week

Art you can wear looks like this skirt, top and jacket
Turquoise and Black skirt, top and bolero

Art you can wear might look like this fun outfit. We started with a new skirt from Marcia Bloom – a one-of-a-kind beauty featuring some sparkles in turquoise, gray and black. We found a perfect T-shirt to bring out the blue in the skirt. Put a black Testimony bolero over it all, and voila! You are ready for anything!

The skirt fits sizes 6 – 14. The blue tee is a shirred V-neck with half sleeves. Available in sizes S,L,XL,XXL. Bolero available in sizes S,M,L,XL.

Resolve to bring more beauty into the world this year in what you wear! It’s not only fun, it also makes people smile.

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:

How To Take Over a Room

Ever wonder how to take over a room?

Wear red!

Think about it.

  • The red carpet treatment.
  • A red tie on all political candidates.
  • The “lady in red” song.

It captures feelings of prestige, confidence, and even sexiness.

Studies have shown how red influences both the wearer as well as the viewer.  It’s an emotionally intense color. It symbolizes action and courage. It makes the wearer herself feel confident. People stop and take notice.

On the other side of the spectrum, red signifies danger, anger and oppression (think fire trucks and Communism).

So, finding the best balance for the situation is called for. Is a touch of red enough? Or do you need the whole hog – a gorgeous red evening gown? Even choosing the best shade of red makes a difference (think pink vs crimson).

Let’s take a look at some examples, all from MaJe Gallery’s current collection of recent arrivals.

How To Take Over a Room

how to take over a room - wear this wine red jacket from Testimony Los Angeles
Power jacket in wine red

Testimony’s popular Reba jacket now comes in this gorgeous shade of red: wine. This results in a softer reaction from others (as opposed to the vibrant crimson), yet still commands attention. No one will say this is too manly because of the feminine styling and rich color. This jacket exudes confidence without feeling overbearing. Perfect!

how to take over a room - wear this striking red, black and tan wrap from Inside Out Everyday.
A softer red mixed with black and tan

This wrap has splashes of red along with black and tan which soften the intensity of this brighter Venetian Red. Wear this over all black in order to cut a stunning figure in any room you care to enter. It’s subtle, yet cannot be avoided.

how to take over a room - wear this cranberry top over a multi-color Marcia Bloom skirt.
Cranberry top over mixed reds and blacks skirt

Add pizzazz to this mixed-color Marcia Bloom skirt by choosing to bring out the cranberry tones. Sure, you could wear a black top with it too, but wearing the cranberry casts the outfit in a whole new light. Picture it with tall black boots this fall! This is an excellent outfit for weddings, class reunions, or holiday parties. Not only will you be extremely comfortable, you’ll feel generously powerful as the entire room takes notice.

And just for fun…

how to take over a room - wear these awesome SolMate socks called Mars
Newest from SolMate Socks: Mars

Named after the red planet Mars, this newest color palette from our favorite sock company, SolMate, is also called Mars. Paired with turquoise from the opposite side of the color wheel, and accented with black, this fun new color combo is quickly selling out. But never fear! More will come before it’s time to get them for stocking stuffers. Still just $19.95.

We have even more red clothing items to choose from, but you’ll have to stop by to see them in person. I look forward to the visit, and helping you put together the best red outfit for the next situation in which you need to instill confidence in yourself as well as the audience.



P.S. Follow us on Facebook to be first to know what’s arriving. Also, we need some facebook reviews! Would you please give us one? Thanks!

Four Tops, Three Skirts, Ready for Fall

New this week at MaJe Gallery are four tops and three great skirts. Actually, there are twelve new skirts – each one of a kind. But only three have pictures here. You have to come in to see the rest!

Let’s start with four tops

These are all made in California by Necessitees – a popular brand that’s been around for quite a while. 94% cotton, 6% spandex ensures a long-lasting shirt. Machine washable.

four tops like this cotton crew in ruby from Necessitees
Cotton Crew Neck T in ruby

We’ll start with the love fall color of ruby. This T-shirt features a crew neck, 3/4 sleeves, and a relaxed fit – perfect to hide any extras in the torso. $48.

four tops like this cotton U-neck in wine from Necessitees
Long sleeve U-neck T-shirt

Here we have a long-sleeve T-shirt in the beautiful wine color. It features a U-neck that’s not too deep. It’s just right.  This one is more form-fitting. If you like it, but don’t like too form-fitting, choose one size larger than your usual and all will be well.  $39.

four tops like this cotton Morocco neckline in beryl from Necessitees
A beautiful shade of blue

This neckline is called the “Morocco” – it’s a soft V, a little rounded as it hits the neck. It is particularly flattering. The V is not very deep, perfect to show off you pendant. This is one of the more form-fitting styles, which makes it particularly good for layering. It has 3/4 sleeves in a color called “Beryl” – a lovely blue with a hint of green. $37.

four tops like this cotton Morocco neckline in black from Necessitees
Your favorite black T-shirt

This is another with the Morocco softened V-neckline, but this time in black. This is one of the more form-fitting styles, which makes it particularly good for layering. It has 3/4 sleeves. It’s sure to become your favorite black T-shirt! $37.

And now for Three Skirts

Marcia Bloom creates funky one-of-a-kind skirts that are extremely comfortable to wear, and a whole lot of fun. Dress them up, or dress them down. Pair your skirt with a solid color top and you are set to go. I’ve seen them paired with a T-shirt and jean jacket for a casual look. Or go for a dressier solid top and a drapey jacket to get more dressy. Pair it with boots in the winter!

four tops might go with one of these one-of-a-kind skirts from Marcia Bloom
Three new skirts for fall

All of these fall just below the knee. The magic waistband works on sizes 4 – 16. Seriously. People sometimes struggle to figure out how to style themselves with these awesome skirts. Here’s a suggestion.

Four tops could be worn with your Marcia Bloom skirt
One idea on how to wear your Marcia Bloom skirt

This pretty skirt in shades of blue is another one from the latest collection. I paired it here with a simple black T-shirt (like the one above) and a short Testimony jacket in mineral wash blue. If you’re in Edmonds, you’ll see this on the mannequin in the window for a few more days.

Come on in and try on one of the skirts. I’ll show you several ways to wear it – from casual to dressy. Add a bit of fun to your wardrobe!

Four Tops need a great hat! Check out our newest selection from Nicole Flood, floodclothing.com

Peridot Jewelry Plus Party Time

Peridot jewelry is what everyone is looking for these days. Not only is it the birthstone for all you August birthdays, but it is also a beautiful shade of green.

Peridot jewelry starts with the raw uncut gemstones
Raw, uncut peridot stones

Background of Peridot

Called “the extreme gem” by the Gemological Institute of America, Peridot is born of fire and brought to light, one of only two gems (Diamond is the other) formed not in the Earth’s crust, but in molten rock of the upper mantle and brought to the surface by the tremendous forces of earthquakes and volcanoes. While these Peridots are born of Earth, other crystals of Peridot have extraterrestrial origins, found in rare pallasite meteorites (only 61 known to date) formed some 4.5 billion years ago, remnants of our solar system’s birth. Peridot in its basic form, Olivine, was also found in comet dust brought back from the Stardust robotic space probe in 2006, has been discovered on the moon, and detected by instrument on Mars by NASA’s Global Surveyor. Ancients believed, quite accurately, that Peridot was ejected to Earth by a sun’s explosion and carries its healing power.

Artists Make Beautiful Peridot Jewelry

Peridot jewelry takes form by artisan Bill Booze
Stunning peridot set by Bill Booze

Many of you are aware of Bill Booze, our master faceter. Bill takes the raw stones, as in the photo at the top. He carves off each and every ledge, or facet, to bring out the maximum beauty of the stones. And did I mention how much they sparkle? Bill carves extra facets underneath to get crazy amounts of sparkle. No two alike, and this necklace and earring set here, in its unusual setting, is a perfect example. $700 for pendant, chain and earrings. (It goes up to $900 in September.)

Peridot Jewelry – Rings!

Two views of a peridot ring

Here are two views of the same ring. This is another incredible peridot featuring the masterful faceting of Bill Booze. It is a large stone weighing in at 5.3 carats. It’s very clear and a yummy shade of green. Currently sized at 7, we can make it your size within 2 weeks. $600.

Peridot jewelry in 14k yellow gold
AAA grade Peridot in 14k yellow gold

Go for the gusto with this AAA grade peridot set in 14k yellow gold. This one is the most amazing peridot I’ve ever seen. The color, clarity, size and beauty are a “must see”. This ring is currently size 6 1/4, but we can make it any size you need within 2 weeks.  $900.

Sky Blue Summer Jackets


Sky blue is a great summer color like in the popular Reba jacket from Testimony Los Angeles
The top-selling Reba jacket in sky blue

The Reba jacket quickly rose to become Testimony’s most popular jacket. Why? Because it’s gorgeous, that’s why! And now, for a limited time, it’s available in this lovely shade of blue called “sky.”

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

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…
