Mary Rambin Nameplate Necklace 2015


Last week I posted this pic on Facebook to share my post about a new 3D mascara and all of your comments were questions about my necklace!

The beautiful and delicate nameplate necklace is a design by Ana Corporan of Brevity Jewelry.  Leven gave one them to all of her bridesmaids before her wedding.

With a quick visit to Ana’s website, I found out you choose from one of their fonts or customize the signature with your own writing!  You can also write a message instead of a name.  Pricing starts at $195 depending on what kind of metal you want (stainless steel, silver, gold, etc).  Click here to explore your options.

It’s the PERFECT gift for someone special – your friend or spouse you’ve already bought everything else.

The “LOW” Leather Leggings That Keep Up With “HIGH” Fashion

November 17th, 2015 No Comments
Club Monaco Leather Leggings
For years now leather leggings have been a winter essential.  Why have they not made their way into my closet:  they’re so damn expensive! For the $1k price tag I want something that fits like a Saint Laurent stiletto: comfortable, snug, and sexy. This year I resolved to hunt down a pair and hand over my card happily.  After weeks of shopping, I had tried the standard J Brand, Rag & Bone, Vince, Helmut Lang, and a handful of boutique designers.  None of their cuts fit my chicken legs and tiny ass.  Even my Intermix stylist was shocked.
It wasn’t until I was browsing for work clothes in Club Monaco (my vote for conservative chic corporate attire) that I stumbled upon this front panel leather and spandex combo.  When I first saw them I thought to myself, “Those are cheap….and totally cheating.  I want the real deal.”  Then I saw the price tag…. “Well, for $99 on sale, it wouldn’t hurt to try them on.”

I actually love the way the panel cuts in and gives my legs more definition.  The spandex is just what I needed to hug my barely-there bum!

For 1/10th of the price I now have an edgy, sophisticated pair of “leather” leggings I love MORE than anything I tried from the contemporary powerhouse brands.  People stop me and ask if they’re IRO or Rag, when I tell them faux by Club Monoco, fashionista jaws drop.

A summer shopping list for the boys + discount code

June 16th, 2015 No Comments

For some reason, men have trouble dressing for casual activities.  They take “casual” to mean “anything goes.”  Sigh. Beach days, in particular, came to mind today.  If men only knew how sexy a simple t paired with a nice pair of swim trunks looked, I don’t think they’d mind wearing the outfit for a few hours before we rip it off later.

The issue I think lies in that when men think “outfit” they think “uncomfortable”  and “expensive.” IF THEY ONLY KNEW how tight our skinny jeans really are!!!

Below are 4 brands you can shop that your man will love and look amazing wearing this summer.  And , they won’t cost either of you a fortune.

The Basic T

Alternative Apparel $46

Wear Anywear Board Shorts

SaturdaysNYC – Shop the collection $75-$85



Katin $81 – found on StagProvisions with tons of great brands

The Flip Flop


Hari Mari Flip Flops

Hari Mari from $60 (all rubber) to leather and canvas $65 (first pair)

$80 (here in leather)

The Bag

Rare Form Tote


Rare Form – backpacks, totes (mine above!), and surf bags made from recycled billboards, each one is unique. Prices $45-80

USE DISCOUNT CODE Mary at checkout for 25% off!

The Bracelet

Miansai bracelet


Miansai – starting at $65

Reflecting on your sunglasses style

May 19th, 2015 No Comments


If you’ve been with me for a while, you know I’m a proven sunglasses whore.  I would hate to tally my running total on designer frames.  After the past two years of shopping at Selima et Benjamin in the Brentwood Country Mart, I’m embarrassed to realize that most of that money I spent previously went towards flashy brands like Chanel, Gucci, or Tom Ford instead of well-made frames and lenses sold by brands like Salt, Benjamin, Dita, Tavat, Randolph Engineering, Thome Brown, to name a few.

 The other thing I love about the boutique, owned and operated by local Cindi Montoya and her sunglasses-designer husband Benjamin, is that their collection is always on trend (if not ahead) AND secures designers’ exclusives.

So what better place to explore some of the summer’s best trends for us to adopt?!


Wham, GLAM, Thank you Thierry Lasry.


Theirry Lasry

Thierry Lasry is like the Tom Ford of the sunglasses world, a trend in himself. He creates “elite-looking” frames for women that make even a mommy trucking around soccer gear feel sexy.  Every woman on the westside owns at least one pair.   His oversized cat-eye is fabulous, and the acetate which comes in bright translucent hues, striking opaque colors, two-toned ombre, and multi-colored tortoise make them the statement piece of your outfit.  Thankfully as flashy as they are, you won’t see a brand in sight.  You’ll know them by their  signature metal temples, the latest of which is matte as seen on his biggest fan, Anne Hathaway below.

Prices start at $435.  Buy them at Selima, certain Intermix stores, and online at ShopBop or EyeGoodies


I bought my mamma a pair for her birthday!



A little pop of reflective color goes along way, ladies who love Lulu.

Wildfox is like the instant solution to updating your outfit.

In one pair, you can combine any of the popular trends you want:

Thick acetate
Bright colors

I love the Catfarer pair I bought above because it takes my very plain workout wear to being fun and funky.

Their whole collection is that way, so hit up Wildfox.com and shop around.  Prices start around $160.

Along with Beyonce and Alessandra Ambrosia, my sister is a huge fan.

Trendy, Tactful, and Timeless


Salt Summer 2015

Salt, started by 8 guys from Oliver Peoples, delivers a variety of trendy designs in a much more subtle way.  You’ll pay more for them and wear them for a lot longer than a pair of Wildfox.  All of their lenses are polarized.  I adore the Odin avaitors I’m wearing in the opening shot of this post.

Other trendy options you should try:


Round metal frames by brands like Ralph Lauren, Benjamin, and Wildfox. You can find some great vintage ones too.

Not many people will tell you to get heavier, but when it comes to Jacque Marie Marge, that’s his schtick right now.  The French designer turned LA local only distributes his frames to a few retailers, so if you find a pair, grab them.  Otherwise, many other popular designers are going heavier on the frame.

Celine New Pretty Sunglasses

I’m sure you’ve already seen the cross-bar on these Celine frames (which Cindi is usually sold out). Now you’ll notice that little connecter everywhere.  Historically on an aviator or a throwback style, the cross-bar has befriended the hipsters and subsequently the fashionistas.  Like the thicker acetate above, you’ll either love it or hate it.

Pre-order your holiday party show-stopper now!

September 30th, 2014 2 Comments



I’m not one to fawn over accessories, especially ones with your name emblazoned across the front, but when Kristen walked into the house with this clutch, it opened a floodgate of compliments.

After I stopped gushing, Kristen filled me in on the details. The custom-made acrylic clutch is from Edie Parker, a line started by Brett Heyman.  Before starting  EP, Brett did PR for Gucci and worked at Elle.  The inspiration for the “wearable sculptures” comes from the showgirls and socialites of the 50’s and 60’s.  Due to the fact that they’re all hand-made, prices start at $895.

Considering I’m the girl who started a line of handbags based on functionality, I am as surprised as you are to hear myself say:

“Let’s forget the fact it’s totally impractical and cumbersome,

it’s a show-stopper and that’s all that matters.”

With all of the parties you’ll be going to over the holidays, an EP clutch will not only make you stand out, but also be a great conversation piece.  

Coupled with its unique nature, the versatility makes the price point more justifiable.  Kristen paired it with jeans, a white t, and Chloe wedges for a casual evening out.

If you’re going to spend the money, I say go Bespoke like Kristen and create your own clutch ($1595 or $1795).  Delivery takes 8-10 weeks so that’s why you need to order it now!

Men and women can get hooked on Miansai

September 2nd, 2014 No Comments

Miansai bracelets

Welcome back from vacation MTM readers!  It’s been a lot of work (on a new venture) and a lot of play in Montauk.  One of the things I brought home with me from the East coast was my first piece from Miansai, a jewelry collection of wrap bracelets, metal bangles, and necklaces for both men and women.



Two years ago I ran into the line as it was growing up in Saturdays SoHo store.  My bf had read about them in GQ and insisted on picking up a bracelet while in NYC.  As we were choosing one, I thought to myself, “I like this for me.”   The brand has blown up in NYC, opened their own storefront on Crosby in SoHo, and even had a pop up airstream at Navy Beach, which is where I ran into them again.

My friends and I browsed all of the pieces.  Prices for bracelets start at $55. So many options between the different color bands (leather, python, or rope), dipped metals (gold, rose gold, or silver), and clasps (hook, anchor, loop).  They give you the opportunity to mix in a little color to your everyday wrist wraps.


I also love the bangles.  Substantial and heavy, they look good solo on your wrist or in your favorite group of bracelets.  Other accessories include a new line of watches (starting at $495) and canvas shoes called Saludos.


In the end, my friends bought bracelets and I went with a gold anchor pendant on a sterling silver chain.  I haven’t taken it off since!

What I love about their designs is that they’re simple yet noteworthy.  They draw attention and respect without bling or a high price.

Shop on Miansai.com  and follow them on Instagram @Miansai.

Visit the store at 33 Crosby, NY NY.

Undeniably the best “flip flop”

August 6th, 2014 No Comments



I wrote about new favorite shoe last March, and here I am over a year later still wearing THE SAME PAIR everyday.  In fact, I threw away all of my Havaianas because they’re no match for my Crocs.

Yes, you heard me, these sandals are made by Crocs.  Pushing your look of disgust aside, let’s be practical.  These lightweight rubber sandals are more comfortable!  Let me explain why:

  • The straps wrap around your ankles so your toes don’t’ have to hold on to the sole.
  • They’re so light and effortless they feel like you’re wearing nothing.
  • They neutral color and simple design is super cute and goes with every summer outfit you wear.

Winner!  My color combo (Espresso with gold studs) is not available online so you would have to call a store to get them (which you can).  Otherwise this charcoal pair with silver studs is cute.  They’re on sale for $25.

Because no one really has them, I give them as birthday and baby shower gifts.  They are ULTIMATE mommy shoe.

Walking in the Palisades the other day, a woman stopped my mom and I, both wearing our Crocs, and said, “Don’t you just love them?!”  We knew exactly what she was talking about :)

Never wear an iPhone arm band again!

June 17th, 2014 3 Comments

I can’t stand wearing those iPhone armbands when I go for a run or workout in the gym.  Reluctantly, I slide my phone into the waistband of my pants or the strap of my bra.  No, I don’t care how weird it looks.  This solution is much more comfortable than those arm bands.

Thankfully there is a new solution on the market: The FlipBelt.


GENIUS in my opinion:

  • FUNCTIONAL: holds all of my stuff w/access for my earbuds to come out.
  • FITS TIGHT: spandex lycra blended belt sizes range from XS – XL
  • FASHIONABLE: comes in 10 colors and looks like part of your workout pants

Buy one online here.

Here’s a video intro.  A little lo-pro, but they have to start somewhere!
