I don’t like to shop, but I love to look fab. No invisible for me baby! When given this assignment— go blow $25,000 on clothes — I lit up. Cause some of my besties are my Glorious Broads fashion icons — and stylists. They’ve been turning me on to goodies for years. And so, I called on them for guidance. My basics cost no money. Zara is my temple — basic black jumpsuit, turtles, a long ribbed black dress, a black beret and a gerzillion tights. Done. It’s the accessories I focus on. And as I age — I blow the dough here. Think badass mama — grown-up style. Let's start with some jewels.
In my book, the best jewelry designer in NYC is Liz Friedman. I went wild:
Diana Vreeland red acrylic necklace chains anchored with animal print beads. This color put me into overdrive. Must find lipstick to match. $1,500.
Five strands of pearls and glitter. Liz says inspired by those jewels worn during the Flapper era. The Charleston — my next class? $1500.
Maryjane wears her own leather jacket from 7 for all Mankind.
Dress by Mame Kurogouchi / UNIQLO and necklace by Liz Friedman.
Commedia del ‘arte was the inspiration for this collar. White faux bois discs combined with red baubles — swoon. $1200.
Inspiration for a black-tasseled, mother-of-pearl stunner was purely tribal. Worn with colorful African prints. Glamour galore. $1500.
Tortoiseshell rings: "If a single chain is good, multiples are better" is Liz's creed. And these studded with gold flecks for texture — major WOW factor. $1200.
Love setting off my $40 on-the-street acquired beret with this killer brooch, combining the eye of Fornasetti and a touch of hand-applied gilt. $500
I have a thing for vintage. But not into lookin golden oldies thank you very much. I visited my pal Sheryl Roberts from Indigo Vintage Style in Brooklyn — she mixes both:
M.J. Morgan shades. Leopard with a cat-eye shape. Ready for that close-up! $18.
Nanushka pink trench giving off Marlene Dietrich. Soft leather sways down to my knees. Delicious, mysterious. $895
Vintage Louis Vuitton Bag available at The Collective: Indigo Style
80’s Louis Vuitton bag —red with leopard trim. Multi-color tassels on front pouch, gold and leather braided strap. I panted. $3,300.
Oscars! Fell in love with a Nicole Miller Silver Sequin Gown with form-fitting halter top. Va va voom. $795
TOTAL - $5008
This chic camel coat from Max Mara was the perfect classic coat Maryjane was looking for. Available at MyTheresa
I did some damage with my style maven bestie, Janis Dardaris. I’ve always wanted a luxe classic camel coat. Now I have one. Max Mara Madame 101801 Icon camel cashmere/wool blend. Simple. Chic. Double-breasted. $4090
But the camel wouldn’t be badass if I didn’t mix with these fierce leopard skin boots — woe. Gianvito Rossi. Willing to limp around the next day for these 3.5 inches. $1,275
Leopard Boots by Gianvito Rossi. Available at MyTheresa
Bad Girl Staples
Stacy London taught me this — the importance of a black leather trench. I spent the big bucks on a Burberry Leather Waterloo Trench Coat. It’s me. $5,900
Motorcycle Mama: $1,500 for this Helmut Lang studded Jacket Thinkin the perfect top for this baby would be Glorious Broad’s ‘TUDE tee $35 – big bold fierce — like the rest of this list
