Halloween: MAD MAX in MADRONA

mad max, jewelry, steel, crystal, xenia mara, cfan, hitchcock madrona, halloween, costume, make upHalloween time at Hitchcock Madrona!  That means get in a costume that you can’t breath in, perch precariously on a rocky cliff, and wear all the jewels.  This year I was transfixed with the imagery of the new Mad Max movie.  I am old enough to remember the old movies (although not very clearly) which were brilliant.  But, any movie with Grace Jones is automatically in the reference data base that is our minds….

reposeSister soldiers…..this could easily be Millie and I at closing time the Saturday before Mother’s Day in the boutique.

fightDo you have a boss like this?!?!?  Xenia Mara chains are worn as belts and with more belts worn as belts.

THE ORIENT scarf - LIGHTTHE ORIENT scarf- DARK

‘The Orient (Light)’ and ‘The Orient (Dark)’ Prints: These prints are the same design, with inverse colors. The positive and negative space play creates two entirely different tones using identical imagery. The Orient (Dark) feels deeply galactic, while The Orient (Light) feels like a sandstorm of rich color.

Trunk Show: Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer

There is nothing we love more than ingenuity in design, and our latest featured brand Orly Genger by Jaclyn Mayer fills that category to a tee. The Brainchaild of 1/2 of the line’s namesake, Jaclyn Mayer, OGJM is playful, sophisticated, and like nothing we’ve seen before. Jaclyn was already designing under her own name when she began using sraps from artist, Orly Genger’s beautiful woven sculptures. From there, the line took off with exciting collaborations with VPL and Mara Hoffman. See a few of Jaclyn’s designs from the Fall/Winter ’15 collection below, and in store along with other incredible sample and collaboration pieces through this Saturday, October 10th.24

 

Muted tones and sophisticated pops of color wind their way throughout this season’s collections. As with most seasons in the OGJM Archives, the color combinations expertly walk the line between playful and luxe.

The Roxbury Necklace is a real standout in the collection. Architectural and modern, in classically rich tones the Roxbury is a light as air statement necklace for any outfit.

Event: Xenia Mara Trunk Show

fun

When we hear Xenia Mara, one word comes to mind: Chains! And lots of them. Xenia’s designs have been an ever present fixture on our showroom floor for the past 8 years, steadily flying of the shelves and into the wardrobe’s of our lovely clients. Ranging from chunky to delicate, subtle bling to heavy metal, Xenia’s designs still have us head-over-heels in love; especially for a night out on the town.

Goddess Chains good enough to eat.

Broke Down: The Search for Fall

Do you ever feel like you’re broken down on the side of the road, just waiting for someone to come along and tow you to safety? That is exactly how we feel waiting for Fall to come along. Enough with the babydoll dresses and billowy blouses. Well, we got impatient waiting for fall and decided to hit the road in search of patchwork, woolen layers, and the men’s coat of our dreams.

Scarves: Hitchcock Madrona; Sunglasses: MOSCOT

Chunky sweaters and oversized coats beg for a contrasting scarf and unexpected, exaggerated layers.

Scarf: Hitchcock Madrona; Earrings: Xenia Mara; Necklaces: Lulu Frost/ Dannijo/ Vintage

This year, we’re heading into fall with looks that pack a serious punch. Instead of easing into fall with a monochromatic attitude, we’re carrying color into our favorite season. From color-blocked hats and bags and festive cashmere, from Kelly Christy, Yestadt Millinery, and Hitchcock Madrona to 70s sexy, and Maleficent approved evil granny finds from our favorites at Dannijo and Lulu Frost we’re making our own fall story.

 

OOTD: Posing in an Alley with a Handbag I Don’t Own (or Just Another Day at the Office)

ampersand as apostrophe, jewelry, turban, jennifer behr, scarf, hitchcock madrona, beads Today, I demonstrate a prime example of the power of accessorizing.  You can spice up a drab t-shirt and jeans with a mere 75 accessories!  Not only am I just wearing a t-shirt and jeans, the t-shirt is effectively wrinkled like I slept in it for several nights in a row (I didn’t, don’t worry).  But, who will be able to focus on the wrinkles when I am wearing Lulu Frost’s Passages Necklace, Eddie Borgo’s Pierced Pearl Necklace, Vintage Native American Beads, and my Chanel Pearls??  HA!  I have cleverly added the biggest distraction of all: the Fashion Turban.

Now that it is officially August, we’re already working fall into our vocab and wardrobe. Keep your eyes peeled, as collections will be arriving in the coming weeks.  Check out our Instagram and Youtube channel for daily and weekly updates!
