If you like a bag that’s more wide than deep, then  your perfect bag might be one of these two. On the left is the Large Zipper Bag, which is 12″ wide x 8″ high and 3″ deep for a spacious inside to hold all your stuff. You can organize it, too, because of excellent pockets such as a full-length zipper pocket on the back exterior of the purse as well as a zipper pocket inside. Two outer pockets are open for easy access to your phone, keys or sunglasses. The 54″ adjustable strap is also removable.

On the right is the Zipper Bag, a smaller but no less versatile option for those who prefer to carry fewer items. 10″ wide x 7″ high and 2.5″ deep, you can compactly carry quite a lot in this popular gem of a bag. It closes with a zipper and has a full-length zipper pocket on the exterior as well. Another zipper pocket is in the interior, as well as an extra-long adjustable 60″ strap.

A full-length exterior zipper pocket is in addition to an open pocket that goes the full depth of the bag, making it perfect for a water bottle or your cell phone. A zipper top keeps everything safe and another zipper pocket on the interior keeps small things in place. Finally, there is a 54″ adjustable and removable strap.

On the right, the Cell Phone Bag is all you need for a walk. Designed to hold even the new, larger cell phones in the outer open pocket, you see another zipper pocket to hold your keys, credit card or ID nice and safe.  Once again, it features an adjustable, removable strap.

Summer Party Outfit Of The Week

Classic, casual and comfortable is the way we like it at MaJe Gallery because that fits our Easy Elegance motto to a T. In this outfit, black/white/gray trousers are a bit wider, which is much more comfortable in warmer weather than clingy leggings of heavy jeans. Pair it with a sassy white top with three cutouts at the neck, a pretty necklace, and a classic Panama hat in soft gray.

Mother’s Day Preparation Thoughts

Does your mother love to wear jewelry? Is it getting more difficult for her to clasp her necklaces as she gets older?

If you answered “yes” to both of those questions, then the perfect Mother’s Day gift is right here: give her the gift of magnetic clasps on her favorite necklaces. There are two ways to do it:

  1. “Borrow” her favorite necklaces. Bring them to Manya. Have her replace the current clasp with a magnetic one at just $10 a pop. Give them back to your mom on Mother’s Day.
  2. Get a gift certificate from MaJe Gallery indicating the number of necklaces your mother may bring in to have Manya replace the difficult clasp with a simple magnetic one. Give it to her on Mother’s Day.

Mother’s Day is a mere three weeks away, so don’t waste any time getting these necklaces to Manya so she has time to make the change in time.

Stay tuned for more Mother’s Day gift ideas next week!

Current hours: Daily 11 – 5, Sunday noon – 4. Closed Tuesdays.

Two New Dresses, An Awesome Coat, and Cool Halloween Earrings

Easy Elegance is my motto at MaJe Gallery, and the two new dresses, the awesome coat and even the cool Halloween earrings all fit the bill to a T. With Easy Elegance, I want to make it easy for you to look great and feel confident in your wardrobe and accessories. Because I’m also well aware that each of you has a distinctive style, I’m always looking for ways to fill in missing gaps in my collections.

This week I am finally filling one of those gaps. See if you can figure out which gap that is by looking at the photos.

Two New Dresses

I’m so pleased to welcome San Francisco designer Gr.Dano to the MaJe fold this week. The designer, Jill, creates sleek, sophisticated style in the most comfortable fabrics imaginable. Check it out.

Two new dresses like this Miro Dress by Gr.Dano
The Miro Dress by Gr.Dano

A little asymmetry is always fun, and this “Miro” dress captures that with flair. Believe it or not, this classy dress is made from cotton knit fabric so you can easily wash it in your machine. This fits slimmer in the shoulders and breasts, so if you’re between sizes, go up one to ensure a good fit. Just $178.

Two new dresses include this Sydney dress/coat by GrDano
The Sydney dress can also be a coat

This terrific dress, the “Sydney”, can be unbuttoned to wear as a coat as well. Charcoal gray is always sophisticated and elegant. You’ll be the power woman in the room wearing this piece. Just $198.

An Awesome Coat

As you’ve heard me say before, our jackets and coats are our signature pieces here in the northwest. We wear them a lot because of our temperature ranges. We are the queens of layering. I’m on a one-person mission to provide awesome coats, jackets and sweaters for that very purpose. There are simply too many boring coats, jackets and sweaters out there, assisted ably by our own northwest designers who are, sorry to say, boring. Take this next coat, for example…

Two new dresses need an awesome coat like the Rogue coat from InsideOutEveryday
The “Rogue” coat, complete with velvet collar and cuffs

Cool Halloween Earrings

Halloween is second only to Christmas in terms of what we all spend on decorating. You’ve gotta admit – it is a super fun holiday that brings out the kid in all of us. But of course, I strive to make it elegant also.

Two great dresses need jewelry like these Halloween earrings by Jem's Jewelry
Earrings for Halloween and beyond

Made in Seattle by Mary Freiberger, these fun earrings are the perfect, classy accessory for your October shenanigans. But hurry, they are going fast. The red pair are already gone! Oops, now the white pair is gone! Just $30. I got two new pairs – one in lime green and the other is a new red. The aqua is still here…

SAVE THE DATE!

I have to face the facts. I’m getting older. Or at least MaJe Gallery is! We enter our 18th year in Edmonds next month! Come help us celebrate on Sunday, November 12, from 1 – 4 pm. There will be prizes, treats, a store-wide sale, and lots and lots of fun! Mark your calendars and join us!

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.

Cheers!

Introducing Our Newest Jeweler

When Christine Busch Lyons was still in college she found some old circus animal stamps in her grandparents’ basement one summer afternoon. As an art major with a specialty in metal work she found the stamps inspiring and used them in her work. These charming shapes can now be found at MaJe Gallery in Edmonds.

Hot stripes need accessories like these zirkus shapes
Octopus and Wild Stars Earrings

Light-weight and shiny silver, these are sure to attract admiring comments from complete strangers.

Hot stripes need accessories like the Puss She earrings from Zirkus
The Puss She earrings!

According to Christine, “I had the idea for the PussShe Cat design early one morning when I was half asleep. I got up and did a drawing and told my husband Glenn “we’ve got to make this!” I was so inspired by the Women’s March and the whole “Pussy Hat” phenomena. Also I love the design and quite frankly thought it might sell. Because of what we believe in, a portion of our sales of PussShe Cat jewelry will be going to Planned Parenthood and the ACLU.

Pendants also available.

A new box of the awesome basic T-shirts from Halo is arriving any day now, so stay tuned! Find out first by following us on Facebook!

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

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

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.
