Scandal “Head Games” Recap

ABC titled this episode “Head Games” when it should have been called “What’s in the box?!” a la Brad Pitt:

Mellie (Bellamy Young) is finally taking the oval with Frankie’s widow by her side. For her professional photos, she donned an orange blazer, which looked great on her. I found this Brooks Brothers Stretch Wool One-Button Blazer ($198) and this Harve Benard Knit Blazer ($67.99) to recreate her look:

Olitz is back on! These two just can’t stay away from each other. Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) focus on his last days in office are on presidential pardons. Olivia (Kerry Washington) can’t help but get involved and takes the stack back to OPA. She wore a Bell Sleeve Colorblock Blouse by Antonio Berardi ($1,345). This is such a unique piece making it hard to recreate but I found a few things that will work. This Lafayette 148 New York Marisa Blouse ($345), Calvin Klein Women’s V-Neck Bell Sleeve Blouse ($79.50):

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) is still on the outs with the President after her betrayal with Peus. She wore the Hugo Boss
Jadela Asymmetric Wool Jacket ($437.50). This Calvin Klein Two-Button Jacket ($59.99) is similar:

Olivia brings the team at OPA a new case – select a candidate for a high profile government pardon. She comes in hot rocking a power cape coat. I found this Choies Black Wool Blend Cape Coat ($29.90) if you want this look for yourself:

Olivia uses this as a test to see if Quinn is ready to take over OPA while she serves on Mellie’s staff. 

Meanwhile David Rosen (Joshua Malina) has brought a box with “Samantha’s” head to Abby’s apartment. He hopes that Jake (Scott Foley) can use it to figure out who she was. Rowan/Eli (Joe Morton) gave it to him and he wasn’t about to argue.

This leads them to discover that Marie Wallace (Khandi Alexander) is back in the picture and ultimately running Peus’ operation. Olivia wore a Cushnie Et Ochs Shawl-Collar Long Coat ($1,197). This Cupcakes and Cashmere Abria Drape Front Coat ($87.50) is similar:

What do you think about Olivia’s mother getting back in the game?

Bachelorette 13 – Rachel Lindsay

The new promos for The Bachelorette are here and I am pumped for a new season to start on May 22! Rachel Lindsay has received the Cary Fetman (Bachelor/Bachelorette stylist) treatment and looks fabulous:

I don’t have the ID for her actual jumpsuit, but this Kyara Tux Jumpsuit from Diane von Furstenberg ($219.20) is a great match:

Rachel’s dress is custom designed by Randi Rahm and it’s a shame that she can’t wear this more places. It would be awesome if she wore this on night one. If you want to get the look for yourself, try this Bustle Up Exposed Back Ball Gown by Terani Couture ($495):

Now on to the main event, this promo. Rachel is ON FIRE!

First of all, the song is Fifth Harmony’s “That’s My Girl.” Second of all, those shoes! Cary Fetman tells me they’re Dolce & Gabbana so I did some searching and discovered the Dolce & Gabbana Climbing Rose Sandals ($1,395). You can also find them with a pink flower for $1,995:

To get this look for yourself might require a little arts and crafts. Take these Steve Madden Strappy Sandals ($99.95) and then head out to the craft store to get some flowers and attach with your glue gun. Easy peasy.

Who’s excited for a new season of The Bachelorette?!

Bachelor 21 – After the Final Rose

Here we go, the last post about Nick’s season of The Bachelor. I’m glad Nick got his happy ending and I wish him and Vanessa happiness. There wasn’t a lot of drama between Raven and Nick and I felt like Chris Harrison was trying to make something out of nothing. We did confirm that Raven will be in Paradise the summer. She looked fantastic in a Stylestalker Trinity Faux-Wrap Slip Dress ($170) and this Carbon & Hyde Trilogy Ring ($2,990).

It’s a little pricey so I found this May Moma Baguette Two Finger Ring ($81) to recreate the look:

Vanessa came out in a Cushnie Et Ochs Knit Cold Shoulder Bodysuit ($725) and Knit Pencil Skirt ($417). I found this Maggy London Geo Lurex Novelty Cold Shoulder Sheather Dress ($77.99) and this WOW Couture Long Sleeve Metallic Sweater Dress ($59) to recreate her look for less:

After spending the whole day promoting something “historic” Chris Harrison introduced a few of the contestants to Rachel before her season started. I wouldn’t call it historic but to each their own… Rachel looked fantastic in a Jovani Hanging Sleeve Knit Jumpsuit ($500). This Black Cape Sleeve Jumpsuit ($55) is similar:

I’m looking forward to Rachel’s season coming up on May 22nd. I wonder if any of the guys from tonight will go far…I guess we’ll have to wait and see.

After the final rose, Nick and Vanessa hit the talk show circuit starting with Jimmy Kimmel where they played the Newlywed Game.

I found a few options to recreate her sequin cutout mini dress. The first is the Halston Heritage Sequined Dress with Cut Outs ($190), the second is the Side Cut Out Homecoming Dress by Scala ($218), and the third is the kensie Dense Sequin Jersey Dress ($70.99):

Normally, the new couple hops on a plane to New York following Jimmy Kimmel, but due to extreme weather, they had to do their interviews with Good Morning America and Live over video chat.

For Good Morning America, Vanessa wore the Self-Portrait Geometric-Lace Long-Sleeve Mini Dress ($435). This Textured Lace Sheath Dress ($48) has a similar style:

I’m sad we didn’t get to see more of this fun dress for Live; I love the color!

The dress is La Petite Robe di Chiara Boni One-Shoulder Ponte Sheath Dress in Berry and it’s sold out. I found this La Femme – Pleated Ornate Asymmetrical Sheath Cocktail Dress ($344) and this LIKELY Cerise One Shoulder Dress ($188) to recreate her look:

That’s all for Nick’s season of The Bachelor. I wish these two kids the best of luck and I can’t wait to watch Nick on Dancing with the Stars.

Bachelor 21 – Finale

Ladies and gentleman, it’s finale time! I don’t get to say that much as I rarely finish recapping the season before the next one starts, but I am pumped to wrap this one all up in plenty of time. Nick was always a favorite of mine and I felt bad for him during Andi and Kaitlyn’s season, so I’m glad that he has two great girls as we enter the finale. This episode reminded me of all the reasons I love watching Nick. He seems like such a sensitive guy at the end of the day.

Vanessa wore a lace-up ribbed sweater during her last moments with Nick before the finale. I found this Lurex Lace-Up Ribbed Sweater ($12.99) or this Catherine Malandrino Lace-Up Sweater ($44.99) to recreate the look:

During the evening portion of her last date with Nick, Raven wore a Woolrich Women’s Dew Berry Sweater Dress ($34.99):

Raven was the first to get out of the car, so we know right away that Nick was going to let her go. Even though I already knew the spoilers I wasn’t totally surprised by this. You could tell that Nick’s connection with Vanessa went much deeper than his relationship with Raven. Raven wore Randi Rahm’s Sylvia Embellished Gown ($6,800) and Badgely Mischka’s Kiara Crystal Back Open Toe Pump ($171.50). I found this JS Collections Jacquard Halter Brocade Mermaid Gown ($248) to recreate her look:

This proposal got to me. I was all matter of fact going into it, but definitely teared up watching it. I love Nick and Vanessa together and hope they are happy together. Something about finally getting to see Nick get his happy ending just got to me. I loved it! Vanessa wore (one of my favorites) a Badgley Mischka Cross Over Sequined Gown ($595), an adorable fur shrung and earrings from The Woods Fine Jewelry. To recreate her look I found this ABS Ombre Sequin Halter Gown ($188), Eliza J Faux Fur Bolero ($198), Victoria Kay White Diamond Feather Dangle Earrings ($340) or Kendra Scott Elettra Drop Earrings ($175):

What do you think about Nick’s final choice?

Bachelor 21 – Women Tell All

It’s time for the Women Tell All a.k.a. auditions for Bachelor in Paradise. The girls started off playing nice, but it didn’t take long for things to get ugly.

Sarah Vendal wore the Style Stalker Adelie Romper which you can rent for $60. This Lilly Pulitzer Tiki Lace Romper ($198) is similar:

Danielle Maltby wore a custom-made white jumpsuit. This Black Luxe Jersey Drape Front Jumpsuit ($96) is similar:

I felt a little bad for Taylor, but as with anything on this show, you have to focus on your own relationship with Nick and not worry about what the other girls are doing. For some reason he couldn’t leave Corinne alone. She was never going to win that battle because Corinne was laser focused on Nick. Taylor wore the Lioness Carrie Dress ($83):

Corinne was next to the hotseat and as annoyed as I was by some of her antics, she had her eye on the prize the whole time and was unapologetic for being herself. I have to admire that confidence. Corinne wore a For Love and Lemons Tarta Long Sleeve Mini Dress ($224) and Steve Madden Stecy Dress Sandal ($31.60):

Kristina comes up next and she is definitely a fan favorite. She wore the Lulus Outstanding Features Red Midi dress ($46):

Danielle Lombard wore Lulus Name of Love Black Lace dress ($74). This AQUA Sleeveless Lace Tiered Dress ($66) is similar:

Now enter our next Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay! She wore a Dion Lee Axis Sleeve Knit Dress ($765). I found two similar options, this LIKELY Packard One-Shoulder Dress ($198) and this Girl Talk One Shoulder Midi Dress ($199):

Based on tonight’s “audition” who do you think will get invited to Bachelor in Paradise this year?

Bachelor 21 – Week 10

We started this episode with Raven’s morning after (which was totally overdone btw). Nick met up with Rachel next for their overnight date. As they are in Finland and the frigid weather, there isn’t a ton of fashion to cover this week. Everything was more functional. I’m not going to lie, but I think the penguin onesie may have did her in…

Vanessa started her overnight date with a Woolrich Down Parka ($789). This similar Women’s Arctic Down Parka ($199.99) is similar for less:

I love watching Nick and Vanessa together, you can see the chemistry between them and just the way they talk about each other…something special is happening. Things started to get serious as the date progressed and they were trying to work out some serious issues. Vanessa wore a Woolrich White Collection Women’s Wool Blanket Coat with Belt ($550):

These two keep getting cuter. After a deep conversation it seems like things are moving faster than any of his other relationships. Vanessa wore a cold shoulder sweater to keep her warm. This Chunky Open Shoulder Top ($45) is similar:

At the rose ceremony, Raven looked fantastic covering up everything with just a keyhole of cleavage in the Stone Cold Fox Victoria Dress ($93). This “Danni” Black Mockneck Long Sleeve Keyhole Sweater Dress ($34.99) is similar:

Vanessa wore a va-va-voom mermaid cut dress with a plunging sweetheart neckline from Boohoo. It is unfortunately sold out, but you can get this Trumpet Dress from Hebeos for just $132.99:

Rachel looked fierce in her rose ceremony dress, which was the perfect ending to her journey and beginning to her adventure as our next Bachelorette. Her dress is from Madison James ($378). This Vince Camuto Embellished Keyhole Halter Gown ($188) is a similar look for less:

What are your thoughts on the final two? Will it be Raven or Vanessa in the end?

Bachelor 21 – Week 9

We pick up right where Nick left off, with Andi popping by for a visit. This was equal parts awesome and awkward. These two have great chemistry together. I am still a little sad that she didn’t pick Nick on her season. I haven’t read her book yet but am hoping to soon-hopefully it explains a lot.

Andi definitely upped the fashion game this episode looking fantastic as usual. She wore these amazing Balenciaga Graphic suede ankle boots ($1335). They are still available in red. She also wore a sold out Vince Asymmetric Leather Jacket and sold out Vince Smooth Leather Leggings. To recreate her look you can snag this BB Dakota Laverne Faux Leather Jacket ($98), Aritzia Daria Pant ($135) and these insane look alike Charles David Robbi Booties ($89.95):

In the meantime, Nick’s other women are gathering for the rose ceremony. Vanessa is killing it again in her Nou Taupe Crossover Bust Maxi Dress ($214):

Rachel wore a Long Boucle Coat from Maje ($322.50) and a one shoulder green gown. To recreate her look try this Andrew Marc Laura Coat ($249) and this Lauren Ralph Lauren One-Shoulder Brooch Gown ($160):

Ultimately, Nick sent Corinne home and took his remaining ladies to Finland for the rest of the journey. Raven gets the first Fantasy Suite Date and they kick it off in a Finnish pub. She wore the Woolrich Two Tone Motif Sweater ($54.99):

The rest of their date gets pretty awkward with Raven revealing too much personal information on national television. She wore an off-the-shoulder red sweater. I thought this Free People Alana Slouchy Sweater ($64.80) was similar but wouldn’t fall off as much as hers did:

What did you think about Corinne’s exit and Raven’s Fantasy Suite date?

Bachelor 21 – Week 8

Nick ends the trip in Bimini by giving all the women roses to take them to hometown dates. First up is Raven in Hoxie, Arkansas. During the date, Raven finds out her dad is cancer free, which makes for a special moment. Nick mentions that their relationship is moving the fastest and I think that’s a pretty good sign that he’s into her. They went mud-bogging, so no exciting fashion to show on that date.

Next up is Dallas, Texas where Nick meets Rachel’s family. Rachel wore a fabulous Off White Cold Shoulder Tuxedo Jacket from Love Culture (sold out). If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that this is a cold shoulder vest, but she doesn’t put her arms in the “sleeves.” This 1. STATE Collarless Open Front Long Vest ($119) is similar:

She is also sporting the Stella and Dot Signature Engravable Bar Necklace ($59):

Corinne’s hometown date was interesting, I suspect that the shopping spree was producer funded. I think Corinne really thought she had something, but the writing is on the wall, this was essentially her first one-on-one date.

On to Canada for Vanessa’s hometown. The chemistry between these two is electric. Vanessa wore a cool wool and leather coat which is sold out from Zara. I found this Belle by Badgley Mischka Solid Long Sleeve Coat ($99.97) and this Vera Wang Taylor Wool-Blend Coat ($175.99) to recreate the look:

Vanessa is such a gem, you can really see her heart in this episode. Not to mention she is beautiful. She wore a sold out fur vest from Zara and these great leather pants with zippers on them. To recreate the look I found this Faux Fur Vest from Chadwicks ($59.99) and Scuba Hip Zip Leggings from Express ($35.94):

Now Nick has to decide between his ladies…Corinne thinks she is a shoo-in based on their hometown date. As she is contemplating from the balcony she wore a great sold out Bebe Faux Fur Ombre Coat. I found this similar Super Star Dip Dyed Faux Fur Coat ($67.92) if you want the look for yourself:

And cue to next week, where Andi Dorfman pops back into Nicks life…

Bachelor 21 – Week 7

So last week Nick left us with a pretty dramatic freak out, but don’t worry, after a chat with Chris Harrison he is all better. Now he can take the girls to Bimini, which I looked up so I could tell you that it is in the Bahamas. I had never even heard of it before. The girls seemed pretty excited about going there though. Vanessa got her second one-on-one date much to Corinne’s chagrin who hasn’t had a one-on-one. Vanessa wore a sold out Fringe Happy Together Blue Lace Strapless Romper. This Lovers + Friends Henna Romper ($53.40) is similar:

Vanessa is smokin hot in her evening look – no wonder Nick is smitten with her. She told Nick that she was in love with him and his response was really weird. I’m not sure where this leaves them. Vanessa wore the Lucy Slinky Knot Gather Detail Midi Dress ($30):

On the group date, Corinne tries to get Nick’s attention right off the bat by stripping down to her bikini. Kristina called her bluff and it appeared that Nick only had eyes for her. Kristina wore a Crochet Fringe Sweater Tank ($25) which made for a really cute cover up:

During the evening portion of the date Kristina wore a sold out ASTR black romper and a great double layer pendant necklace. To recreate the look I found this La Blanca Crocheted-Trim Long-Sleeve Romper Coverup ($95) and Stella and Dot Aria Pendant Necklace ($98):

We see Raven again in a Week 3 look, the sold out Stylestalker Sofala Midi Dress. This J.O.A. Scalloped Lace Midi Dress ($99) is similar:

It must have been her lucky dress, because Raven got the group date rose and a guaranteed hometown date. Danielle gets the next one-on-one date and just as it seems to be progressing nicely, Nick sends her home. She wore a sold out Nasty Gal Romper, but this Lace-Trim Surplice Romper ($32.99) is similar.

At this point Corinne has had it. She’s received no attention from Nick so she decides to put it all on the line and visit Nick in his room to “show” him how she feels. She wore a sold out Zara blouse, leather pants, Louboutins and her platinum vagine to pull out all the stops. You can get this similar Vince Camuto Georgette & Jersey Faux Wrap Blouse ($74):

Rachel was pumped for her one-on-one date and they had a local, casual date hanging out in Bimini. Rachel wore a stylish double split front maxi skirt. I found this Slit Maxi Skirt from Love, Fire ($45) to recreate her look:

Before I wrap up, this was the week that Jimmy Kimmel announced Rachel as our next Bachelorette. You can watch the clip below:

Rachel wore a Cushnie Et Ochs Asymmetric Open-Side Cami Dress ($1,395.00). This Bec & Bridge Onyx Asymmetrical Dress ($108) is similar:

What do you think about Rachel as The Bachelorette?

Bachelor 21 – Week 6

This is the two-on-one date that never ends! Taylor just won’t leave…

We head into the next rose ceremony and Nick ups the drama by cancelling the cocktail party. Now the women don’t know where they stand. Rachel is safe with a rose and she looks fabulous in a sold out Sherri Hill Beaded Two Piece Cocktail Dress. Sherri Hill makes a similar style for $518 here:

Danielle wore the Kendall Dress from SAU ($335). They also have a similar version in a different pattern here ($395).

At the rose ceremony Nick let Alexis, Jaimi, and Josephine go and then announced that the remaining women would be accompanying him to St. Thomas! Kristina got the first one-on-one date in St. Thomas and we really got to know her. I hope we see more of her in the future. She looked adorable in a sold out Flirting with Danger Cutout Ivory Dress from LuLu’s. This Jodi Kristopher Trim Inset Textured Knit Skater Dress ($69) is similar:

On the group date, Rachel wore a sold out Ecote Crinkle Square Kimono Jacket. This Women’s Kimono White Floral Merona ($26.99) is similar:

Vanessa was smokin hot in her Missguided Double Strap Crossover Bikini Set ($45). They have a similar style in more sizes with this Bandage Crossover Bikini Set ($54):

On the evening portion of the group date Danielle wore the Bardot Maxi Dress from Flynn Skye ($198). Her exact print is unavailable, but they have a ton of others to choose from:

Vanessa changed into the Sheeva Slinky Strappy Side Tie Maxi Dress ($25) which was a great evening beach look:

Nick sent Jasmine home during the group date after she had a crazy meltdown. Raven ended up getting the group date rose, saving herself for another week. Danielle and Whitney were selected for a second two-on-one date, unprecedented in Bachelor history. Danielle looked sweet in a ruffly romper. I found this Lovers and Friends Malia Ruffled Cold Shoulder Romper ($160) to recreate the look:

In a shocking move, Nick gets rid of them both. First Whitney goes home on the two-on-one and you think he is keeping Danielle but then he lets her go at dinner. I think he was really upset about Danielle since they had started to connect, so he went to the visit the remaining women and just sort of broke down. That was sort of weird, it was hard to understand what he was thinking in this moment. Nick is a sensitive soul, which is why I think women find him endearing.

Do you think Nick will find love on his journey this season?
