Foto Friday

Whew – this week really flew by, right?  We’ve been busy busy busy with fall fashion in full swing for our clients and Peach trainings in Houston and Chicago!  Oh yeah – and being Mommies.  Minor thing.  ;-)  Hope you’re enjoying the Fall weather in your part of the country, we sure are.  Happy Friday!

What is Like To Know It?

We thought we would explain just that – what IS Like to Know It??

By now you have seen numerous pictures on Instagram telling you to ‘sign up and get details sent to your inbox’? But what does that mean?

Screen Shot 2014-09-17 at 7.40.30 AM

This is the perfect way to shop your favorite Instagram looks!

How does it work?

Here is another example…

First, Sign up HERE for LikeToKnow.It

When you see all of our cute pics with outfits and ideas, just hit “like” … and Voila! You will get an email with details of the items that we purchased.

Shopping just got a whole lot easier!

Here is a ‘preview’ of what your emails look like …

Then, click on the items that you like and it takes you directly to that site to see the price and possibly purchase! Brilliant.

And if you aren’t signed up for Instagram? You are missing out.

Sign up and get the looks, it’s as easy as that.

Happy Wednesday!

Getting Settled + Stella & Dot Giveaway!

Some of you may know, but I (Mollie) just moved from the Chicago area to the greater NYC area – somewhere in Connecticut. It has been quite a long summer for us…..the first half of it was busy with kids in camp and househunting trips out East, and the second half of it we lived with my in-laws for 6 weeks before coming out here.  Needless to say, I am SO GLAD to be getting settled in our new house in our new community.

IMG_0262

None of the rooms in the house are totally ‘done’ yet, but I’ve gotten pretty far with the kids’ rooms (which is fun and easy, since it’s ok to be whimsical and not have everything ‘just right’).

Here are a few pics of my daughter’s room so far:

IMG_0432

These are some vintage Barbie prints that I purchased years ago, waaaay before kids, for ME. Now, they’re perfect for her room.

IMG_0431

Complete with a costume jewelry wall frame, because when you’re 4, you can never have enough tacky jewelry.

IMG_0430

I’ve also had these wire mini mannequin forms forever. So nice when things stay with you and work in new places!

I found this little 'Good Morning Little Girl' sign at the Chicago Randolph Street Antiques Market a couple of years ago.  Finally had it matted and framed, and I adore it.

Onto my son’s room – which is not nearly as finished.  However, the transformation from a toddler/Kindergartener room to a ‘big boy room’ is almost complete.  From the NFL quilt to this new amazing basketball rug, he’s a happy camper.

As I said….not done yet, but getting there. And will the Lego mess every really get cleaned up? Let’s be honest. No.

 

For some extra organization, I also just ordered these easy canvas ‘over the door’ hangers from Pottery Barn Kids.   As you know if you’re a Mom, there is always something that needs a home in your kids’ rooms.  ;-)

I’ll share more rooms as I finish them, or at least as they clean up a little.  ;-)

I also wanted to remind you of this:

We adorned more than a few pieces from the line that were caught ‘in action’ at NYFW:

Erin is wearing the Rebel Pendant, Chevron Cuff, Pyramid Stud Cuff and Chevron Ring.

Molie is wearing the Helena Necklace.

Mollie and I are not able to see each other often but when we do, we pick up as if it were yesterday. Don’t you love those types of friends?

Style Spies Diaries of NYFW – PART 1

New York Fashion Week.

Inspiring, Incredible, Exhilarating.

We want to share with you our highlights so you can be a part of our SS NYFW 2014 trip!

Style Spies was created and continues to grow because of our love and passion for fashion – being surrounded by those that share similar views was invigorating and inspiring more than we can tell you.

We shopped (surprise!) and hit all of our favorites, Piperlime, Wink, Tibi, Barneys, Kate Spade Saturday and more …

Top, Jeans, Shoes, Sunnies, Bag (old, Similar)

After shopping our hearts out (can’t wait to wear our new goodies!!), it was time to start prepping for the shows.

Before.

Monique Lhuillier was a show stopper, hands down.  The shades of pastels that walked down the runway were flawless.

The confetti that filled the air at the end was the grandest of finales.

Seeing one of our favorite stylists,

Brad Goreski and running into an old client and friend, Jennifer Morrison brought lots of smiles.

We mingle with some of our favorite bloggers,

We have a surprise from Stella & Dot and MORE!!!

Accessorizing #NYFW

What did we wear to New York Fashion Week?  That’s tomorrow’s post.  But for today, it’s all about the accessories. Which, are just as important if not MORE important than what we’re wearing, right?

Our friend and photographer Jackie came equipped with probably my favorite accessory – Flash Tattoos.  These are the latest trend in accessorizing, and of course we all had to have both a feather tat on our forearms, and then we all chose a bracelet to add to the wrist party we were all sporting.

Here are some images from the Flashtat.com site:

H20_5__07798.1405531982.220.290 Flash_tat_gfk11_w__53770.1405401747.220.290 Sofia_2_w__47582.1405401822.220.290

And here’s what we did with them (click thru on each pic to find where to buy):

IMG_0386 IMG_0389 IMG_0390

What are those fab rings I see in the 2nd picture you might be asking?  They are by Kendra Scott, and it’s all one ring!  So much fun to wear.

naomi-ring-gold-gunmetaldrusy-front

Kendra Scott Naomi Double Ring in Platinum Druzy

 

Shoe-wise, so many options, so little time to wear them all!  Make sure that you’re including some leopard print, a little color, and a little metallic in to your Fall shoe buy this year.  A metallic or leopard print are basically neutrals and will go with anything, and a pop of color in your shoe will brighten up an all black or muted look.

Shoe options – do we have enough?

IMG_0384

We <3 Louie.

 

Finally – these are the shoes we HAD to put on after the parties and dinner.  It felt a little silly in our dressy outfits to be throwing on these comfies, but trust me it was necessary!  And of course, all of our ‘chill’ shoes had a little bling to them.
