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 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.

Outfits Of The Week

your perfect bag needs a great outfit like this one
Summer Party Outfit Of The Week

Options



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.

your perfect bag needs this great outfit
Evening party or summer wedding outfit

Options



Do you love blue? Me too. For a special summer wedding or evening party, wear this denim blue circle skirt by Marcia Bloom with a white tank top, this french terry “coco” jacket by Testimony, and a one-of-a-kind chalcedony lariat necklace by Poppy Designs.

Summer items are arriving almost daily now, so stay tuned for our next installment!

Skirt + Top + Jacket = Super Summer Outfit – only at MaJe Gallery

Easy elegance is our goal here at MaJe Gallery. Easy sometimes means versatile pieces that look great together and can also be worn with other things in your closet. A great example is this week’s outfit which is a skirt + top + jacket for a wonderful summer outfit you can take anywhere.

Skirt + Top + Jacket

skirt + top + jacket these items from Zen Knits make a great summer outfit
Print skirt, plus coordinating top and jacket

Sizes



All fabrics are luscious rayon jersey for soft comfort. The periwinkle, mint green and black print in the skirt is full of lively movement. Calm that down with solid coordinating pieces like this periwinkle tank top and a black shrug. Bring some of the green up with a green chalcedony pendant to pull it all together. Get the jacket here, and the skirt and top below.

skirt + top + jacket without the jacket this Zen Knits skirt and tank are a perfect summer outfit
The skirt and tank alone

Options



Here it is without the jacket so you can see everything clearly. This outfit is so comfortably, you might just wear it all summer long! Pair the skirt with a black top, or even mint green. Wear the tank with jeans, or how about your favorite white pants? The versatility is perfect because I know how much you like to be practical.

A Great New Top

skirt + top + jacket is great, but so is this magenta cowl top from Color Me Cotton, AKA CMC.
Magenta!

Sizes



This particular top looks great on so many different body shapes, and it just arrived in this enticing new magenta shade – just in time for summer! The CMC (Color Me Cotton) cowl top features 3/4 sleeves in a tunic length, making it particularly excellent to wear over black leggings or skinny jeans. It doesn’t wrinkle, making it an excellent choice for travel. Just $89. These never last long, so if you like it, don’t hesitate!

What Else Is New?

In addition to the lovely skirt + top + jacket, I have a new line of purses I think you’ll really enjoy.

skirt + top + jacket needs a great purse to accompany it like these great choices from Vaan & Co
Upcycled leather handbags

Yep, you read that caption correctly: upcycled leather purses exude artistic flare and excellent craftsmanship. This is such an awesome way to make good use of things other throw away, don’t you think? New leather prices consistently rise, making even a simple bag rather expensive. These creative folks found a great way to piece together leather remnants to make durable, stylish handbags that suit your needs well. With a variety of sizes, shapes and number of pockets, you’ll surely find a perfect one for yourself. Priced $38 – $98.

skirt + top + jacket needs a cute bag like this one, the Brisk, from Vaan and Co
The “Brisk Madison” upcycled leather purse



This little cutie is a front and back image of one of the new purses in our upcycled leather collection. It is 8″ high x 6″ wide with an adjustable leather strap that’s also removable so you can use it as a clutch or throw it into a larger bag. Zipper top opens to a spacious inner body that has another pocket. A second outside zipper pocket helps keep everything organized. This is the perfect purse for those who like a small bag. $38.

skirt + top + jacket needs a great upcycled purse like the Harley from Vaan and Co
Upcycled Leather Crossbody



This is another little bag, but a bit larger than the one above. It’s called the Harley. This one measures 8″ high x 6.5″ wide, but it is also 1″ deep offering more room in the interior. In fact, the buckle reveals a small front pocket and an outside zipper pocket. There are two deep pockets inside with a zippered small pocket in the middle. Use the strap for a shoulder or cross-body hands-free situation, or streamline it as a clutch. $58.

skirt + top + jacket looks great with this mid-size bag from Vaan and Co
Mid-size upcycled leather bag



This beautiful mid-size handbag, the Vivo, features the upcycled leather collage on a durable frame. A wide shoulder strap makes for a comfortable, hands-free solution – or remove it to use the bag as a clutch. The front panel opens to reveal a spacious interior with one zipper pocket and one open pocket.  $98.

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.

At just $32, it’s perfect over jeans, under a jacket or sweater, and every day living. NOTE: This is a body conscious top.

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

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?).

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.

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

Elegant summer hats exemplified by this new collection from Canada's Parkhurst
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.

Elegant summer hats like the Sentinel Peak from Parkhurst
The Sentinel Peak

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

Colors



Another 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: The black and white is 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.

Elegant summer hats might be like Flood hats from Portland, Oregon
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…

Elegant summer hats might be like one of these unique beauties from Nicole Flood
Ten new hats from Nicole Flood

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!

New Sparkly Gems Just Arrived!

New sparkly gems just arrived here at MaJe Gallery, to tantalize our eyes.

New Sparkly Gems – Pendants

New sparkly gems like these three pendants by Bill Booze
A trio of pendants

Bill Booze is a master faceter of gemstones. That means he starts off with rough stones like these peridot samples…

New sparkly gems start out like this
Peridot in the rough

Now look at the pendent on the left again, to see the result of Bill’s amazing skill in faceting gemstones to reveal the utmost clarity and sparkle within. Here’s that pendant on to give you an idea of the proportions.

New sparkly gems like this double peridot pendant look even better on a body.
Peridot Pendant Modeled



A larger faceted round peridot is on top, while a smaller one is at the lower end of the arc. Sterling silver setting comes complete with 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New sparkly gems like this 6.6 carat garnet in an emerald cut
Emerald-cut Garnet modeled



If you love garnets, you know how unusual it is to find one this large without white or clear inclusions. At 6.6 carats, the clarity and depth of color on this beauty are inspiring. Set in a sterling silver setting, and comes complete with an 18″ sterling silver rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $500.

New sparkly gems like this triple-garnet pendant in sterling silver
Triple-Garnet pendant modeled



An usual sterling silver setting for a trio of faceted round garnets shows that you enjoy beautiful jewelry with a unique character. These pendants are not for the woman who wants to look like everybody else. Includes 18″ sterling rope chain. One-of-a-kind. $400.

New Sparkly Gems – Rings

Even though March is nearly over, with aquamarine as the birthstone, I want to show you this new aquamarine ring from Bill Booze, our master faceter. The pale blue color looks stunning in this sterling silver setting.

New Sparkly Gems like this pale blue aquamarine ring in sterling silver by Bill Booze

The cool hue of this particular aquamarine is enhanced by the coolness of the sterling silver band and prongs. Check it out on my hand…

Pale pink Morganite, and Smoky Quartz

Options



On the left, a pale pink morganite gem faceted by Bill Booze captures the imagination. In the same family as aquamarine (beryl), it is strong and brilliant with lots of sparkly – especially because of the additional facets Bill always adds to the underside of the gems he cuts. A simple sterling setting lets the stone show off its clarity. $400. Available in any size you need.

On the right is a spectacular smoky quartz stone, also faceted by Bill Booze. A very cool setting features an unusual sterling band with a squared-off top and 14k yellow gold prongs. $450. Available in any size you need.

New Sparkly Gems – Earrings

Okay, they’re actually glass that is as pretty as a gemstone. Enjoy these lovely new choices from Passiko.

New sparkly gems might be mismatched glass earrings by Passiko
A quartet of “wacky” earrings by Passiko

Options



Passiko tells the story about these mis-matched earrings she calls “Best Friend” earrings. Why is that? When you have a best friend, you have a lot of things in common…but not everything. Just like these earrings. Individually crafted from heavy sterling wire into beguiling curves and twists, and adorned with a hand-made glass bead by another artist from Washington’s peninsula. One-of-a-kind of course. These four are priced $32 – $38.

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. (Update: JUST ONE LEFT!)

Sizes



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!

Black Linen Top-Jacket

Sizes



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. (Update: Sold out! I ordered more for first week of June. Call me to reserve your size.)

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. (Update: Sold out!)

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!
