missing out

“It’s a thoughtful, slouchy, post-Cedar Tavern, Disillusioned Preppy Unisex look, still accustomed to intense, status-minded fashion scrutiny, but overcoated by a spalike, de-stressed and soul-seeky note I’ll call Reprioritized Values or The Benefits of Acupuncture”.

It took me a good while to realise that spalike was not actually an unfamiliar word (sp'leek) and was simply missing a hyphen. I really do think it would be better as a word, “oh darling! that ocean chewed, deconstructed biker jacket in that beguiling shade of burned prune is absolutely spalike!”
