Wear white now! That’s our mantra as our warmer weather and sunny days cheer us all up and make us think of summer. Forget the old rules! Don’t wait until after Memorial Day. Wear White Now!
Wear White Now: Tops
Four white tops are now available at MaJe Gallery. One is sure to be the right one for you!
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. (Update: Sold out for now.)
3/4 sleeves? Check. Tunic length? Check. High neckline? Check. Medium-weight fabric? Check. Testimony has done it again, introducing a medium-weight French terry fabric for the summer. The body is smooth knit while the sleeves and hem feature white-on-white stripes to add the perfect amount of visual texture. 100% cotton, machine washable, great for travel and every day. Wear it over leggings, skinny jeans, regular jeans, or even trousers. $98.
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…
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
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. (Update: Sold) 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. (Update: Sold)
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:
- “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.
- 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!
