street(ish) style

ok, one of these photos is not street style in the slightest. it's actually a pic from zara's recent lookbook. but i'd be happy to make it street style if someone wants to take me out i promise to don one of these sexy slip numbers and have a photo snapped ;-) how good are these slip dresses?  and i couldn't resist including nicole richie in this marc jacobs golden goddess dress. gorgeous! which looks do you like?

play by your own rules

After wrapping today's shoot, I threw on my favorite Rebel Yell baseball-jersey-style t-shirt and felt so blissfully content with it's soft coziness (i'm an addict for anything cozy... clothes, bedding, homes, people ;-) when it occurred to me that i needed to check on the label for fresh gear. I discovered their amazing look book that embodies all that is officially rebel yell: clothes "For the tomboys, the rebels, the girls with tousled hair and torn up tees who play by their own rules." For me, Rebel Yell clothes, which are proudly made in Los Angeles, represent the cool and carefree attitude of the quintessential California girl. Can you dig it?

nouveau Grunge

if the resurgence of Birkenstocks wasn't enough of an indication that the 90s are back and better than ever, here's more proof, a la French Vogue. Check out the cover and a bit of the editorial. xo, mary

p.s. i edited out the naked editorial parts. it wouldn't be French Vogue without some exposed tatas but it wouldn't be style Mailbox with them. Keeping it PG up in here. 
p.s.2. how much do you love the 90s? minus all the self-pity and depressing tunes like "Everybody Hurts" by R.E.M. so awful, it's seriously painful.

this and that

keeping you dialed in with just a bit of stylish this and that...
if you're on hunt for sunnies on the cheap, without looking cheap, i've found just the pair. they're by spitfire and you can find them at nordstrom. also at nordstrom, the perfect pair of high waisted denim  in an amazing wash by Cheap Monday for less then a hundred. :-) although i'd like to send a plea to summer to please slow the (bleep) down, fall is approaching nonetheless and i'm really feeling quilted jackets as a great transitional piece. just the right weight and love the texture. lastly, a note from the fashion woman herself, miss coco chanel to brighten your day and a photo that so made me want to get bangs. seriously, should i get bangs? and buy a red dress? just kidding. although the red dress is killer!! xo, mary

vision board material, check.

remember circa 2006 when the book "the secret" came out and everyone and their mother (oprah included) was amped on visualization and vision boards? not that i don't subscribe to the hype, there's some truth there for sure, but i never got around to that vision board bit. given these photos of cuixmala off the virgin coast, i now have no excuse to not visualize a dream vacay. thank's honestly, wtf, I'm officially inspired! :-) maybe you'll be too? sharing is caring ;-) xo, mary

And these words straight from her blog: "Set on a vast private estate along the Pacific Coast in Mexico sits Cuixmala. Among the many things that set Cuixmala apart from other boutique hotels are an exotic animal preserve, a turtle sanctuary, a coconut plantation, and an organic farm where most of the food consumed on the property is grown. Who doesn’t wants to rent a luxurious and private casita on the Virgin Coast? And did I mention most rooms come with your own chef and butler?!"
