Elegant Summer Hats Now at MaJe Gallery

Elegant summer hats are now here at MaJe Gallery. Supplies are limited to stock on hand, so don’t wait!

Elegant Summer Hats

A trio of elegant summer hats

One of these styles will look good on anyone. Three different profiles fit a range of face shapes, so one will certainly look good on you. Come in and play! Here’s a breakdown of these three.

Elegant summer hats like the Ruthie bucket cloche from Parkhurst
Ruthie Bucket Cloche in blue and white

This woven straw hat in cheerful blue and white straw has a classic shape called the “bucket cloche.” There’s a reason a hat shape becomes a classic, because it looks great on a wide range of women. This features a medium wide brim, a charming bow, and two blue stripes amid a blend of the two colors. As usual, all Parkhurst hats feature SunGuard, which protects your skin 50 times more than wearing nothing. This hat is also adjustable, with a string attached to the inner part to make it exactly the right size for you. Just $34. (SOLD OUT.)

Colors



Another one of our elegant summer hats is the more casual, cotton knit “Sentinel Peak,” also by Parkhurst. This is a classy take on the typical baseball cap style, featuring a wider brim, sewn-in layers to add character where a hat band would be, and a coconut shell button to decorate. Manya has several of these in different colors, and always gets compliments when she wears them. Available now in black, medium blue and nut (shown). This hat fits most heads well, except very small heads. If you know your head is small, it will be too big.  Also, as with all Parkhurst hats, it features SunGuard and protects your skin 50 times more than wearing nothing.  $45.

Elegant summer hats always include the classic panama, this time from Parkhurst
The classic Panama hat

nother classic is the Panama hat, with a wider brim that angles down, protecting your face from the sun’s blasts. This two-tone version is especially classy, and is now available in black and white (as shown on the model), pale blue to medium blue (middle insert), and black and tan (right insert). This is also adjustable, with a string inside the brim to get a perfect fit. Another Parkhurst hat, this again features SunGuard and protects your skin 50 times more than wearing nothing. (Update: Sold Out.)

Elegant Summer Hats – Funky Vintage Feel

In our neighbor city of Portland, Oregon, lives creative upcycler Nicole Flood, creator of elegant summer hats made from cast off tee shirts.

Flood Hats are uniquely elegant

With a distinctly vintage vibe, these cotton, one-of-a-kind hats feature an elegant design focus on one side of an angled brim. Here’s a shot of ten new hats we just received…

All our favorite colors are here, from black to gray for the neutral lovers, then turquoise, hot pink and lime green for a splash of color. With no two hats alike, it’s best to come in and try them on to get the one that fits you best. Manya will show you the best way to wear them to get the most of your Flood hat. This is the type of hat you’ll wear all day long, to compliment your outfit of the day. Just $44 each. Machine washable (after all, they began life as a mere tee shirt, never knowing they’d be turned into a fabulous hat later on.)

Elegant Spring Outfit

There’s nothing quite like the elegance of black and white…

Elegant summer hats need elegant clothing to match, like this white top and black vest from Testimony Los Angeles
Testimony’s white top and black vest

Elegant summer hats need elegant clothing to match! Check out these new pieces from Testimony Los Angeles, featuring a lighter weight french terry (100% cotton!) that is ultra soft. The white top has a high neckline, 3/4 sleeves with ruched elbows, and covers the butt. Pair it with this asymmetrical black vest – made of the same ultra soft light weight cotton knit – that comes complete with pockets! Both are machine washable, very light weight and thus great for travel. Manya added both to her wardrobe and has been getting compliments every time she wears them. Top is $98, Vest is $128. Only a few available, then poof! They’re gone. (UPDATE: As predicted, the vests are all gone. I’m ordering more for first week of July. Want one? Let me know and I’ll set it aside for you.)

Lots more spring and summer items are on the way, so stay tuned! I’ll show you what’s new in next week’s post!

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.

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.

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!
