Bachelor 21 – Week 4

Week 4 picks up where we left off at the pool party. The girls are upset about Corinne’s antics, but really they are just jealous that Nick seems to be so into her. I liked Jasmine’s cover up, which she got at T.J. Maxx. I found this Floral Print Kimono for $24.99:

At the rose ceremony, Nick sent home Brittany and Christen. You know I wasn’t too upset about it since I couldn’t even remember their names…

Chris Harrison comes to tell the girls that they get to travel to the exciting locale of Waukesha, Wisconsin! When they arrive, Nick picks Danielle L. for the first one-on-one date. I won’t be sharing Danielle’s evening attire as she was popping out of it the entire concert. But she got the rose, so I guess it worked.

Next up for the group date, the girls got the chance to do some work down on the farm. I don’t know about you, but I’ve always wanted to muck out stables while trying to impress a guy… It worked for Kristina and she receives the group date rose.

Raven gets the final one-on-one date this week and she gets to meet Nick’s family and attend a roller skating party. Later that evening, Raven goes into crazy detail about how her ex-boyfriend cheated on her and she beat him in the head with a stiletto. Nick doesn’t seem to worry and gives Raven the rose.

We get another to be continued after Corrine and Taylor have it out during the rose ceremony. To be fair there wasn’t a lot of great fashion in this episode, maybe I will get a better look when we pick this back up.

Are you #TeamCorrine or #TeamTaylor?

Bachelor 21 – Week 3

Never again do we have to hear about Jade and Tanner’s wedding…at least until the Women Tell All. Nick finally sent Liz home in the last episode, but now he has to deal with the consequences. The girls feel like they were being lied to the whole time…or at least for two episodes.

Danielle M. wore a sold out Theory Saida Striped Sweater. This Brooks Brothers Cotton Stripe Crewneck Sweater ($78) is similar:

Sarah wore Jetset Diaries Sunset Bodycon Dress. I found a similar Tadashi Shoji Cap Sleeve Lace Dress ($408) to recreate the look:

Astrid wore the LIKELY Driggs Strapless Dress ($178). I also found this similar Charles Henry Off the Shoulder Woven A-Line Dress ($88) with more sizes:

Raven wore the Stylestalker Sofala Midi Dress ($99). This NSR Floral Lace Slipdress is similar ($78):

Corrine ended up sleeping through the rose ceremony after a scandalous whipped cream show for Nick. She already had a rose though so Nick sent home Lacey, Hailey, and Elizabeth. The next day, a few lucky women are treated to a special group date with The Backstreet Boys! Danielle L. was selected to get serenaded with Nick as part of the date. Corrine is apparently a self-admitted bad dancer and she is still trying to make up for her snoozefest which puts her in the awkward position of not feeling very confident on this date.

Back at the mansion, the one-on-one date card comes and it says “Vanessa, you make me feel like I am floating.”Their zero-gravity date was SO adorable! I would love to do that with my husband. I did feel bad that she got sick at the end though. I loved her black moto jacket during the evening date and found this similar Levi’s Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($150):

The next group date card was for Rachel, Alexis, Astrid, Jamie, Sarah, Brittany, and Dominique and says “I’m done playing the field.” During the group portion of the date, Astrid wore a Kendall & Kylie Stripe Strapless Jumpsuit ($69.30):

While Dominique was self-imploding, Sarah was enjoying her wine with the Kendra Scott Naomi Ring ($130):

Instead of a cocktail party, Nick decided on a pool party. Sarah wore a sold out Show Me Your Mumu Honolulu High Neck Bikini Top in the Strike a Rose pattern. The bikini bottom is still available for $40 and a similar top is available for $46. I found a similar Floral Foliage Bikini Top ($17.90) and bottom ($12.90). She also wore the Kendra Scott Elisa Pendant Necklace ($50):

To be continued…who will stay and who will go? Find out next week…

You’re Invited: Bachelor Viewing Party

If you haven’t figured it out from my blog, I LOVE Bachelor Nation! It is my guilty pleasure to follow all the Bachelor blogs and Twitter updates each season and I love sharing the looks for less.

This year, I was invited to host my own Bachelor viewing party at the Emagine Theatre in Royal Oak on Monday, January 30, 2017 in honor of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast. I would love for you to join me for a special screening of The Bachelor on the big screen! The first 30 attendees will receive a rose, we will play Bachelor Bingo to win prizes such as a $100 gift card, and more! There is limited seating so please RSVP by clicking here.

Beauty and the Beast will be in theaters on March 17th, but in the meantime rumor has it that Josh Gad and Luke Evans will host Monday’s episode of The Bachelor. Josh Gad plays Le Fou and Luke Evans plays Gaston in the upcoming movie. I’m crossing my fingers that this week’s date will have a fun Beauty and the Beast crossover like we saw with Chris Soules and Jade Roper on Season 19 (you can relive it here).

Beauty and the Beast might be one of my favorite Disney movies, so a themed date would be awesome – maybe they will go to a library… Since the Beast is cursed with and enchanted rose, I can see lots of overlap with Nick’s roses this week. I just took a peek at the official trailer (there might be a new one on Monday’s episode) and it looks magical!

I hope to see you on Monday night!

Bachelor 21 – Week 2

Week 2 of The Bachelor kicks off with the first group date of the season for Corrine, Vanessa, Sarah, Alexis, Hailey, Lacey, Brittany, Jasmine, Raven, Danielle L., Taylor and Elizabeth W. and the card says “Always a bridesmaid…” The ladies then head off to a raunchy themed wedding photo shoot where Corrine takes off her top and proceeds to make out with Nick, half-naked in front of the other women. Classy.

During the evening portion of the date, Corrine is drunk and can’t stop stealing Nick away from the other women – which of course doesn’t bother anyone. On top of winning the photo challenge, Corrine also wins the group date rose – Nick is definitely drinking the Corinne Kool-aid. Unfortunately, there weren’t any stand out looks during this group date, so I don’t have anything to share with you on that end. If there is something you are interested in let me know!

Back at the mansion, Danielle M. gets the group date rose which says “Our relationship is about to take off.” One of the necklaces is the Pavé Diamond Charm Necklace ($168) from Brooke Worthington:

On the evening date Danielle shared the heartbreaking story of her fiance. She is so sweet, that is an awful ordeal and she must be very brave to come on this show after something like that. She wore a custom made Cavanagh Baker jumpsuit. This Laundry by Shelli Segal Jumpsuit ($148) is similar:

Nick gives Danielle the rose and she is safe until next week.

Meanwhile, the next group date card comes for Christen, Josephine, Astrid, Jamie, Kristina, and Liz saying “We need to talk…” Nick takes the ladies to the Museum of Broken Relationships where he has donated the engagement ring he almost gave to Kaitlyn. The women have to break up with Nick live as part of the date. What is more awkward than the terrible outfits is the breakup between Liz and Nick. It is time to send her home!

The only outfit that I thought was nice was from Kristina. She wore the sold out Lotus Top from Cupcakes and Cashmere. I found a different floral top that would also look great with white shorts and wedges. It is also from Cupcakes and Cashmere, the Tibet Floral Top ($84):

During the evening portion of the date, Nick finally confronts Liz and sends her home. This was definitely the right move as the other women never would have trusted him after they found out. The episode ends on a To Be Continued note and we will have to wait to see how the women react. Do you think anyone will leave?

Bachelor 21 – Week 1

The Bachelor is back and so is Nick Viall for his fourth round on the show! I have to admit that Nick has always been one of my favorites. I loved him on Andi’s season and was so stunned when she picked Josh. I’m glad he’s getting his own turn to do the picking.

Here are some of the fashion highlights from Week 1…

Danielle Lombard has AMAZING hair…seriously hair envy for days! Since she owns a nail salon I bet she hers look impeccable the entire season. In her intro video, she wore this Tularosa Amelia Crop Top ($118) at the beach.

I loved Vanessa Grimaldi’s effortless girl-next-door style with her white off-the-shoulder sweater with black stripes. I found two similar options, a Vince Striped Bouclé Cashmere Sweater ($345) and a Calvin Klein Striped Open Stitch Sweater ($31.33):

Danielle Lombard looked stunning in her black lace plunge gown and Nick definitely noticed! I found a few similar options if you want to recreate the look. There’s this Dress the Population Michelle Sequin Gown ($318) and this ABS Jersey Triangle-Sleeve Gown ($390):

Rachel Lindsay stunned in a sold out red lace one shoulder Mac Duggal gown. This Adrianna Papell Embellished Lace One-Shoulder Gown ($179) is similar:

Hailey Merkt pretty much told Nick that she wasn’t wearing underwear so there’s that. She looked good in her Open-Back Floor-Length Terani Dress ($249), but that’s definitely not how I would make an entrance…

Elizabeth Sandosz was up next an in case you don’t get tired of hearing it in the coming episodes, she previously met Nick at Jade & Tanner’s wedding and they had a one-night stand. Lots of drama to unpack there, but she looked great in her navy blue sequined plunge dress. I found a few similar options to recreate her look; first Dress the Population’s Harper Mermaid Gown ($308), second, Mac Duggal’s Sequin Slit Gown ($338), and third, Ralph Lauren’s Sequin & Jersey Cowl Back Gown ($184).

Corinne Olympios is already turning out to be a polarizing figure this season and definitely our “villian.” As much as she annoys me, I have to admit that she looked stunning on night one in her burgundy plunge number. I found a few options if you want to get her look. This Floor-length Evening Dress ($132.99) which has a burgundy option (not pictured) and this Burgundy Halter Plunge Neck Twist Front Open Back Dress ($20):

Next up is Danielle Maltby who brought Nick some homemade maple syrup. She wore the Conversation Piece Wine Red Backless Maxi Dress from LuLu’s ($74):

Enter Lauren Hussey, who pointed out that together they could be a disgusting hussy (because that’s what you want your new boyfriend to think about the first time he meets you). She did have a classic look including a Badgley Mischka Sequin Cowl Back Halter Gown ($492.99). This LuLu’s Slink and Wink Matte Rose Gold Sequin Maxi Dress ($78) is similar:

Despite Corinne’s stolen kiss, it was Rachel who snagged the first impression rose from Nick. Nick also kissed her which was a little different from Corrine’s kiss which she initiated. Nick decided to let Angela, Briana, Ida Marie, Jasmine B., Lauren, Michelle, Olivia and Susannah go home this week. We are now down to 22 ladies for week two.

Who are your favorites so far?

Bachelor 20 – After the Final Rose

I figured I would write a separate post to talk about After the Final Rose and all of Lauren’s looks from Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America and Live with Kelly and Michael.

JoJo comes out first looking like the epitome of what you want to look like when you see your ex for the first time. She wore the T by Alexander Wang Cutout Stretch Knit Bandeau Dress ($450). Nordstrom also has more sizes available in Navy. I found a few similar looks in this Charlotte Russe Cut-Out BodyCon Dress ($29.99) and this Black Long Sleeve Cut-out Asymmetric Dress ($20):

Alexander Wang

After Ben and JoJo got to catch up, Chris Harrison announced her as the next Bachelorette! Thank goodness! I can’t wait to see more of her style next season!

Finally Lauren and Ben were reunited in public to live happily ever after. While they did not get married on TV, they seem to be doing well. I like that they both had their families present. I don’t think previous couples did, but they may have and just not showed them on TV. Lauren looked like the perfect bride in Jonathan Simkhai’s
Tower Lace Dress ($1,195). This ASTR Samantha Floral Lace Dress ($109) is similar:

Jonathan Simkhai

Once they finished taping After the Final Rose, Ben and Lauren stayed in LA to do Jimmy Kimmel. You can check out the clip below:

Lauren wore the Lovers + Friends Heart You Dress ($148). You can also rent it for $50 here:

Lovers and Friends

What you don’t realize is that immediately following Jimmy Kimmel, Lauren and Ben had to fly to New York to get ready for Good Morning America.

Lauren wore the Sunset Dress from The JetSet Diaries which you can rent for $60. This Stylestalker Lani Lace Mini Dress ($179) is similar:

JetSet Diaries

After a quick wardrobe change, Lauren and Ben were ready for Live with Kelly & Michael.

Lauren wore the sold-out Dixie Cutout Mini Dress from Nightcap. You can rent it for $60 here. This J.O.A.
Lace Dress ($88) is similar:

Nightcap Lace Dress

Later that week, Ben and Lauren made their way to the Today Show.

Lauren wore the Dixie Lace Catsuit from Nightcap Clothing ($396). You can also rent it here for $75. It looks like they modified this a bit for Lauren to be two pieces. This Adriana Lace Jumpsuit ($82.60) is a similar look for less:

Nightcap Jumpsuit

And there you have it, hopefully these two crazy kids live happily ever after. Were you happy with Ben’s choice? What about JoJo as the next Bachelorette?

Bachelor 20 – Finale

Here we go people, the Bachelor 20 Finale! I think this might be the first time I’ve actually made it to the end with my fashion recaps before a new season started, so I’m pretty pleased with myself!

Up first are both Lauren and JoJo lamenting about how they feel much more confident now that Ben has professed his love…but wait a minute, both of them wonder if he has also said the same thing to the other. JoJo’s white off-the-shoulder top is on point. I found this similar Velvet by Graham & Spencer Off-the-Shoulder Lace Top ($138) to recreate her look:


To meet the parents JoJo wore the BB Dakota Amina Romper ($60.99). This Jack by BB Dakota Aerona Floral Haze Printed Crinkle Chiffon Romper ($62) is similar with more sizes:

BB Dakota

On Ben and Lauren’s last date, Lauren wore Victoria’s Secret Surf Teeny Triangle Top ($19.99) and The Surf Bikini Bottom ($24):


During JoJo’s last date, Ben reveals that he is confused much to JoJo’s chagrin. JoJo wore the Vitamin A Neutra Bralette Limelight ($129.95AUD):

Vitamin A Nuetra

Unfortunately, poor JoJo got her heart broken by Ben. She still looked unbelievable in the Mac Duggal Cassandra Stone – Style 4365A ($498):


Lauren and Ben lived happily ever after…or at least for the next six months. Only time will tell. I loved watching their proposal. They might be one of my favorite couples in a while. I hope they beat the odds. Lauren looked beautiful in my favorite color. She wore Badgley Mischka’s Odessa Halter Gown ($462), you can also rent it at Rent the Runway for $100:

Badgley Mischka

What did you think about this season of The Bachelor? How long do you think Ben and Lauren will last? Or do you think they will make it to the altar?

Bachelor 20 – Women Tell All Recap

Who’s ready for some catfights?! The Women Tell All and After the Final Rose are my favorite fashion episodes because it serves as a second chance for all the women. After watching themselves on TV for 11 weeks, all the women come back fully coiffed and smokin hot to confront their “ex.”

Ben and Chris Harrison kick off this week with visits to some Bachelor viewing parties. I don’t understand Bachelor fantasy leagues. I am a spoiler reader and they are so readily available it is almost silly to pretend like you don’t cheat…especially if money is involved.

Let’s get down to fashion business:

Leah wore the Lacie Dress from Ritual Boutique ($72):

Lacie Dress

Becca wore the Parker Kimono Romper ($167.20). You can get it here in silver for $418. Parker has this similar Vicky Embellished Romper for $297:


Haley wore the Oh My Love Great Pretender Velvet Cutout Dress from Nasty Gal ($57.40) and Kendra Scott’s Jordan Open Pinch Ring ($75). They have some additional colors and sizes in blue and black.

Nasty Gal

Emily wore a Sherri Hill Cap Sleeve Short Black Bandage Dress ($480), Stella & Dot Bianca Earrings ($39), and the Kendra Scott Signature Naomi 3 Stone Double Ring in Black Drusy & Gunmetal ($130):

Sherri Hill

Olivia wore the Zimmermann Crepe Harness Jumpsuit ($420) with the Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Pendant Necklace ($59.99). This Ralph Lauren Sable Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($298) is a similar look for less:

Zimmerman jumpsuit

Lauren H. wore the Lacey Dress ($59):

Lacey Dress

Jennifer wore the Keziah Dress from the Misha Collection ($220) and the Scorpio Drop Earrings from BaubleBar ($32). This Bardot Halter Mesh Dress ($90) is similar:


Amanda wore a For Love & Lemons Gianna Crop Top ($171) and Gianna Mini Skirt ($167):

For Love and Lemons Gianna

I can definitely say that this was the most uncomfortable Women Tell All ever. I was uncomfortable watching it. I never understand why people get super crazy about women treating this like a competition. As they say “All’s fair in love and war.”

Bachelor 20 – Week 9 Recap

It’s Week 9…bring on the fantasy suites!

Since things are heating up, we kick off the week with some long stares and statements about how Jamaica is a beautiful place to fall in love. Lauren and JoJo are in sync in their Victoria’s Secret Robes. Lauren’s is the Satin Kimono in Blue Water ($49.50):

Kimono Wrap

JoJo’s Satin Kimono ($59.50) is a little different with lace cut outs on the shoulders.

Satin Kimono

Caila was up first and the date got off to a bumpy start. She also wore a bathing suit crop top as and outfit…although if I had her abs, I would wear that every day. Unfortunately, I can only help you with the swimsuit, not the abs. Caila wore the Billabong Gypsy Dreamin’ Crop Halter Bikini Top ($54.95) with a Madewell Mini Geochain Necklace ($30):


Lauren’s date is up next and if it’s possible she may have worn even less than Caila. I absolutely could not pull off those shorts so I won’t even try. They did have the cutest date helping to send baby turtles into the wild. Before they headed off to the fantasy suite, Lauren told Ben that she loved him and SURPRISE! he said it back! Let’s just wrap it up right there people…

Last but not least, JoJo looked smokin’ hot in her Indah Sisi Bikini Top. I was floored when Ben told JoJo that he also loved her (WHAT?)!!! Her specific color is no longer available, but you can get it here in black for $55:


I am stunned that Ben just went out there and said the “L” word to two women. Somebody is truly going to get hurt, which is sad. After watching this episode, it’s obvious who that will be. I loved JoJo’s evening maxi dress, the Ecote Deluxe Daisy Maxi Dress from Urban Outfitters. It’s in pounds so about $100 US. This BB Dakota Larissa Black and White Floral Print Maxi Dress ($99) is somewhat similar:

Urban Outfitters Maxi

Once in the fantasy suite, JoJo pulls out another rockin’ bikini look with with Vitamin A Swimwear Kylie Triangle Top ($59.99):

Vitamin A Swimwear

Caila stops to surprise Ben and he ends up setting her home. Caila seems surprised, but I think she is better off in the end.  She wore the same Billabong Gypsy Dreamin’ Crop Halter Bikini Top ($54.95) which is reversible and a sold out Bay View Skirt from Athleta. They also make a similar Pura Vida Midi Skirt ($54):


At the least dramatic rose ceremony, both women get roses and we are left to wonder how Ben can actually be in love with two women. JoJo is looking amazing in her Bebe Deep V Midi Dress ($129)! Since her pattern is no longer available I found this additional ASOS Deep Plunge Rose Midi Scuba Body-Conscious Dress ($68) that has the same floral feel:

Lauren arrives and also surprises Chris Harrison by telling him that Ben is in love with her too! I’m not sure if he knew that before the girls showed up, but the audience was definitely surprised. Lauren wore the High Tide Maxi from Blue Life ($154):

High Tide Maxi

There you have it…our final two ladies!

What did you think about Week 9? Next week will be fashion packed with the Women Tell All!

Bachelor 20 – Week 8 Recap

We have arrived at hometown dates this week and get to see our women in their natural habitats (ha!). First up is Amanda in Orange County, California, who decides to introduce Ben to her children. She wore a sold out Vallarta Shoulder Bell Sleeve Top from Swell. This shirt drove me crazy because it was falling off of her the whole time. I would have had a wardrobe malfunction for sure. I found this Socialite Off-Shoulder Long Sleeve Woven Blouse ($24.97) which had some straps to help this stay up.

Next up is Lauren’s hometown date in Portland, Oregon and they have a fun date eating street food and going to a whiskey library (this is my kind of date!). Lauren wore a sold out Check Pocket Front Shirt and Quilted Leather Jacket both from Zara. Fun fact: Kate Middleton has also worn this shirt. I found a similar Tartan Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 ($17.90) and Dawn Levy 2 Women’s Quilted Leather Moto Jacket ($115.72) to recreate this look:


Lauren’s sister Mollie stole the show with her oversized cardigan from Target (sold out). Target makes a similar Mossimo version ($29.99) to get her look. Maybe we’ll see Mollie on a future season of the show…


Caila is third with a hometown in Hudson, Ohio where we discover that she is the heir to the Step2 throne. She and Ben build a child’s playhouse and re-enact An Officer and a Gentleman. Caila wore a High-Low Turtleneck ($29.95) from Anthropologie, a JCrew Excursion Quilted Down Vest ($99.99), and H&M Slim-Fit Pants ($19.99). Since most of these only have limited sizes and colors left, I recreated the look with an AQUA Cable High Low Sweater ($49.50), Tommy Hilfiger Quilted Vest ($99.99), and DKNY Jeans City Faux Leather Skinny Jean ($59.95):


JoJo is last in Dallas, Texas and she has a surprise waiting from her ex-boyfriend. This was silly and totally contrived by producers. It wasn’t even a storyline throughout the season and they barely spent five minutes on it which was just weird. JoJo looked fantastic in her Kristin Cavallari Laurel Peep Toe Booties ($149.95):

Kristin Cavallari

At the rose ceremony JoJo looked STUNNING. That dress was definitely worth a rose. It is sold out from La Femme, but I found a similar Rise Of Dawn Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 ($89). She wore Teardrop Earrings from Nadri ($44):

La Femme

Amanda wore a For Love & Lemons Lyla Cocktail Dress ($246):

For Love and Lemons Lyla

Unfortunately, Amanda was sent home this week, maybe we will see her again in Paradise…

What did you think about Week 8?
