  • DMJ talks Movies: Joy

    1 comment / Posted by Samantha Lee

    Not often is it the case that actors like Jennifer Lawrence, Bradley Cooper, and Robert De Niro get together to tell the story of a powerful female entrepreneur. This past Christmas holiday, however, that is exactly what they did.  Joy tells the story of real-life entrepreneur, Joy Mangano.  She is responsible for the invention of common household products that make each of our lives easier every day.  Those skinny velvet hangers you have in your closet?  Yep, that was her idea.  
    Although she is wildly successful today, this was not always the case.  She faced years of struggle and hardship leading up to her big break.  This movie will make you want to go and do that thing you never had the courage to do before.  We here at DMJ respected Joy's resiliency because we know that running a business is not an overnight success.  It takes hard work and dedication no matter the circumstance.
    Here are a few of our favorite looks from the movie:

    Costume designer Michael Wilkinson shares the back story
    "I designed this suit and had it made in New York for Jennifer in ivory wool crepe. We looked at vintage Yves St.Laurent and Escada for inspiration.This outfit defines the successful phase of Joy."

  • Jewelry Trend Report: 2015

    0 comments / Posted by Kristy Kim

    Where has the year gone? It's already November, and it's getting chilly here in SF (Yes, even in SF. I miss 85 degree September weather!)
    We spent much of the year experimenting with many different styles of earrings from dainty pearls to bold statement pieces. Among those, one of our top sellers was ... Kylie Ear Jackets!

    You might have spotted this look already both on and off the red carpet.


    We love ear jacket earrings because they are fun and versatile. And, of course, we especially love, pearl ear jackets for their more feminine and sophisticated vibes!
    Kylie Ear Jackets are handmade of freshwater pearls, crystals and sterling silver.

    Met Gala


    Fashion and celebrities collide together in a yearly event known as the costume Institute
    gala or simply the Met Gala. In which they can help spread artistic knowledge by the proceeds
    benefiting Metropolitan Museum of Arts Costume Institute. Vogue's editor-in-chief
    Anna Wintour is the creative genius behind the lavish event. With this years
    Gala approaching DearMissJ wanted to share our top five looks from the previous years.  


    1. Sarah Jessica Parker in Oscar Del Renta

    Can SJP do no wrong? We could have easily just filled this list with all Sarah Jessica Parker looks.
    This black & white gown she wore for the 2014 gala is now even more iconic with
    the passing of the great Oscar Del Renta.

    2. Suki Waterhouse in Burberry

    The British model truly looked like a princess with this blush Burberry gown.
    The ruffles give the gown the perfect feminine touch.  


    Suki Waterhouse  


    3. Beyonce in Givenchy 

    This is a dress that only Queen B could pull off.
    It is a dark and edgy dress that was perfect for the theme of Punk.

    4. Jennifer Lawrence in Dior

    Whenever Jennifer Lawrence wears Dior she tends to turn heads and this was no exception.
    We absolutely love this tea length dress that definitely stood out among all the floor length gowns.

    5. Blake Lively in Gucci

    Blake looked like straight out of Hollywood’s golden age.
    We are big fans of any dress with a cape accent!( ex Gwyneth Paltrow at the Golden Globes)
