Being The Style Spook is being a stylish spy. I seek. I search. I investigate, hunting down, spying, tracking, finding the pieces that become a part of home and a well curated wardrobe. I am but a mere operative. I am a spy, pursuing passion. When not on a mission, I document, maintaining my 'cover" - La Boheme: foodie, singer/songwriter, musician, performer and costumer. I lead a double life. I have secrets...don't you? Join me on my journey into style espionage.

A Bit of Fun and Favorites on a Fancy Free Friday!
-First Post this Friday- Friday Favorites: Sales
Too Many Designer Sales and Affordable Things!
Weekend Sale Round Up:
1.) Boy By Band of Outsiders at Gilt: affordable sale items! Very nice transitional items that will take you straight from summer into fall with poise & style, gracefully. Rock it or be inspired.
2.) Catherine Malandrino Gorgeousness awaits you at Gilt or Net a Porter. The sales are way too good to be true. I am in Love!
3.) Vera Wang Silk Swag Boy Shorts are AMAZING over at Gilt, but there is only size 4 left so go get them if you are that size! They're hot! Sizzlin' sexy and superbly cut for a perfect fit and look to mix with numerous closet staples. I want them, but alas I am not a size 4 and even though the price is so silly crazy cheap at $79., I have overspent way to much on a pair of shoes, pilates classes and a chemical peel. Oopsie doops!
Perfect. Right? Now you are feeling me! I love these. Buy them and send me a picture of you wearing so I can turn green with envy instead of red from chemical peeling. Lol!
3.) Accessories and SHOES over at Gilt are so amazing and so affordable too! Shoes, Omg. Shoes, Omg. SHOES, OMG! Let's get 'em!
4.) Forever 21 Sale Items! The items are affordable and will incorporate into almost any outfit in any wardrobe. There are great basics and some interesting statement pieces!
PS: Menswear can be bought by a woman or borrowed from your man and these types of staples are fantastic items to add into every woman's closet! I borrow from my hubby all the time, but I also buy from the men's department when my hubby starts complaining that I stained or stretched something of his out! It's a lot easier to be on the other side of the argument and let him do the begging! Buying vests, skinny ties and men's cardigans because they are fabulous and blend seamlessly into my look even when I'm wearing girlie items is pretty cool. The hard edge works to toughen up an outfit into a look that isn't too saccharine sweet. It's all about the balance of the tough with the girlie and not going too far in either direction when mixing in the actual men's clothing.
These could use a bit of a custom alteration for a cleaner fit. I would do that myself. I think they're just a bit too wide and not the greatest silhouette from below the knee to the ankle.
6.) I am loving these for our home from Swirl by Daily Candy. They're symbols of Longevity by the brand, Market, Street and you can get a set of 2 for $15.00! Check the whole line up out over there! Cute and amazing smelling soy candles that are great for the environment! I already ordered mine.
