Spies Like Us

Burn Notice is one of my favorite shows. Spies, comedy, romance, suspense, shoot 'em ups, and, of course, Mr. Bruce Campbell (in case you haven't noticed, I love me some Bruce). It's also one of my husband's favorite shows, so Thursday nights are very much looked forward to. We finish dinner, pop some popcorn, and settle in for whatever new calamity might befall Michael Weston.

And that's when I start driving Thomas batty:
Me: Oh, my God! I love her little (insert fantastic outfit here)!
Thomas: She needs to eat something.
Me: Yes, but oh, it's so cute! Where do they find this stuff?
Thomas: Shhhh...
Me: And the shoes!!! Um...why do they have that guy tied up?
Thomas: *facepalm*
So, in an attempt to quiet down and give poor Thomas a little peace for tonight's episode, I have taken it upon myself to find Fiona's wardrobe. Obviously, I don't have the budget USA has or access to their wardrobe department, but I do have access to the Forever 21 website. So there.

According to USA's Burn Notice Spy Style page, Fiona is partial to the following:

The assymetric high society dress. First we have Fiona's, then the affordable alternative for $19.80. I tried to find a picture of the dress she wears in the pilot (and in the opening spiel for every episode), but couldn't. I think this Forever 21 dress looks just like it. If anyone finds it, let me know and I'll update the post with it.
The V-neck butterfly dress. This one from Forever 21 is only $14.50 The tangerine trapeze dress. I actually like this off-the rack version better. I'm a sucker for details, and the wooden beads are killer. It's $24.80.

An embroidered romper. This Forever 21 version is a really reasonable facsimile, I think. The color's different, but at $14.50, I can deal. Cargo pants and a simple tank. This inexpensive alternative will run you $26.40 total.
Of course, you can't talk Burn Notice without mentioning sunglasses. This mall pair will run you a whopping $5.80.

So, there you have it. Again, all styles are from Forever 21. Happy shopping, and try not to spill any yogurt on anything.

  1. ok, i'm going to forever 21 this weekend. this settles it. :)

  2. My first comment! Yay! And I know, it was all I could do to not go crazy on the site. I'll pull from other places, like H&M and the like, on future posts.
