Summer Stripes

No Comments »

Stripes work year-round, but there is something about  summer and stripes that just feels right. Whether it’s a horizontal navy and white maxi dress or a pinstriped print  top, stripes seem to add an extra level of cool to any wardrobe.

Jazz up a BBQ outfit with a flowy dress in bold stripes. Add a wedge and some MYJ accessories and you’ll look effortlessly feminine and casual.

For the office, wear a striped print top alone or underneath a blazer for a polished look that gives you a touch of individuality. Leave the solids in your fall/winter section!

Accessories are the perfect way to work stripes into an outfit without going over board. A striped scarf worn with a solid top provides the perfect amount of the summer’s It print. Shoes and bags in a striped print can also allow you to wear just a hint of this summer’s trend without feeling overwhelmed. Remember, just a hint of stripes can go a long way!

Whatever the occasion, make sure you have some stripes in your closet to work into your outfits and you’ll be set for summer!

Silver Starter Layering Kit – Wear 3 Necklaces 16 Ways!

No Comments »

Over the last several years, I’ve often been asked by girlfriends and women attending our trunk shows, “How do you layer and what necklaces should I include in creating a layered look?”   Many times the question is followed by the words “It looks too complicated and I don’t think I can duplicate your look.”  After a little coaxing from my sister, I embraced her brilliant idea and designed a Silver Starter Layering Kit that includes 3 necklaces that can be worn 16 different ways.  Photos of the 16 different looks are included to make it simple and fun  to accessorize.

ENJOY and be CREATIVE with layering!

Welcome to the launch of May Yeung’s Blog!  With the unveiling of our brand new website last month, I’m thrilled to share that I now will be writing about my true “passion points” every week.

In addition to the most recent news about MYJ, I’ll be including helpful, fun, and creative posts about Versatile Accessories, Contemporary Fashion, Modern Home Accessories, Sophisticated Lifestyle, Styling Tips, Inspirations, Philanthropy and finally my Favorite 5.  I have several guest bloggers waiting on the side line to share their stories as well so stay tuned.

As I start the journey of sharing my “passion points”, the following is my favorite quote that was forwarded by a dear friend and which I am fond of staying true to with my individual timeless fashion and home décor style.

Accessories are no longer an afterthought – they’re the main attraction.” – New York Times

Step Up Salon – An Evening at Henri Bendel

I’ve been an active member since 2003 of Step Up Women’s Network – a national non-profit membership organization dedicated to strengthening community resources for women and girls. Through teen empowerment programs for under-served girls, professional mentorship and social networking opportunities, Step Up educates and activates members to ensure that women and girls have the tools they need to create a better future.

On May 6th, 2010, the Henri Bendel accessories store in Los Angeles hosted an evening with over 70 women in attendance that included social networking, cocktails, and shopping.  They also made a generous $2500 contribution to Step Up to benefit the organization.

For those who know me well, I’m always game for a philanthropic shopping event that involves accessories. I’m like a little kid in a candy store when I’m surrounded by jewelry, handbags, scarves, etc. Bendel’s was merchandised beautifully with their signature chocolate brown stripe noticeable at each corner of the store whether incorporated in display, packaging or product.  I couldn’t have been happier soaking in all the creative visuals.

It was a fun evening mingling with dynamic women who support and inspire other women!


Nautical Stripes

Michael Stars – Long Sleeve Striped Cardigan

I was originally inspired with stripes 6 months ago after watching Coco Before Chanel starring the French film actress Audrey Tautou. In one of the scenes, she’s wearing a navy and white striped crewneck t-shirt, a classic and timeless print that captures the essence of Parisian style.

Although stripes are a hot and popular trend this season, the truth is that stripes are always in style. Many designers this year are offering nautical striped dresses, sweaters, cardigans, t-shirts, tanks, and scarves. You can easily pair your stripes with dark denim, white jeans, or a pair of khakis for an effortless and chic look that works from day to evening.

Stripes, whether black and white, navy and white, or red and white, are a simple and modern look. To accessorize your stripes, layer a strand of white pearls or a gold link chain to complete your timeless look!
