Wear White Now: Tops

Four white tops are now available at MaJe Gallery. One is sure to be the right one for you!

White “dolman tank” by Necessitees

The “Dolman Tank” by Necessitees is a constant best seller because it is such a perfect wardrobe basic. The jewel neckline makes it an excellent layering piece, as well as the slightly longer length. Now available in white, black, royal blue, lavender, pink and charcoal, the soft, lightweight 100% cotton fabric won’t pill even after many washings. Great for travel as well as life. At just $32, it’s perfect over jeans, under a jacket or sweater, and every day living. NOTE: This is a body conscious top. If you want a looser fit, order one or two sizes larger than you usually buy.

Do you want to make sure your arms are covered? Then this lightweight 100% cotton tee is for you. 3/4 sleeves and a crew neck look attractive as well as modest. The length is that of a regular tee shirt, ending at the hips. Super soft, washable, great for travel and perfect for every day. Just $37. NOTE: This is a body conscious top. If you want a looser fit, order one or two sizes larger than you usually buy.

A trio of cutouts frame the neckline in this delightful top from Florida’s Inside Out. Sleeves reach the elbow while the length falls to the hips, allowing for breathing room in the torso. Dress up your jeans just a tad, or wear it over leggings or a skirt.

Wear White Now: Jacket

This jacket is only available in spring. Last year I only had four to offer, and they disappeared in a few days. This year I ordered a few more. Let’s see how long they last…

Wear white now like this charming zip jacket from Color Me Cotton

Sizes



This roomy jacket is made of super soft cotton knit. As you can see from the back view, pleats on the reverse side allow for a lot of forgiveness in our torso region (what love handles?). Strong, industrial zipper won’t get stuck, and two big pockets can carry your keys, phone and ID. These run fairly large, so keep that in mind when ordering. Just $98.

Wear White Now: Jewelry

Wear white now like this mother of pearl and pearl necklace by Poppy Design
Mother-of-Pearl and Pearl necklace



Two views of a one-of-a-kind necklace by Poulsbo favorite jeweler, Poppy. Teardrop mother-of-pearl beads are drilled at the top, creating a lovely cascade when strung side by side. Poppy never does anything routine, so she added a row of white pearls asymmetrically for visual interest. Wear it long or double it up because at 36″, it doubles to 18″. This versatile necklace can be worn with white, black or any color you wish. Just $190. Check out the matching earrings below…

Also one-of-a-kind, these mother-of-pearl earrings feature a single top-drilled Mother-of-pearl beads topped with a textured circle that dangles from sterling shepherd hook ear wires. Beautiful alone, they also make an excellent set with the necklace above.

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.

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!

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.

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!
