Bachelorette 13 – Week 5 Part 1

Jack Stone gets the next one-on-one date and Rachel wore a cute leather jacket, a mesh, embroidered dress and cute booties. To recreate the look I found this ASOS Sleeveless Embroidered Dobby Mesh Skater Dress ($72), Blank NYC Life Changer Moto Jacket ($98) and Dolce Vita Double Buckle Peep Toe Suede Booties ($59.99):

On this date, she wore a number of Robyn Rhodes rings, including the Foxglove ring ($29.99), the Forget Me Not ring ($42.99), the Rosemary ring ($59.99), and the Thistle ring ($39.99):

Rachel’s outfit looked more cozy than Jack Stone, who got sent home during dinner. It was so obvious that they didn’t have chemistry in this scene, it was awkward to watch. I loved Rachel’s gray cardigan sweater and thought this Halogen Rib Knit Wool & Cashmere Cardigan ($149) is similar:

Rachel cancelled the cocktail party and wore a sexy, custom Randi Rahm gown with a high slit up the thigh to send home Iggy and the Tickle Monster. It was hard to find anything similar, but you could try this Sequined Lace High Slit Fit and Flare Evening Dress by Jasz Couture ($224):

Rachel’s makeup is on point with this look:

The episode picks up on the next week where Rachel and the guys travel to Oslo, Norway. Rachel wore a BB Dakota Cowl Neck Sweater ($60). I think this BB Dakota Tegan Off the Shoulder Sweater ($83.60) is the same or similar but I can’t quite tell from the photo:

Rachel is sporting the Robyn Rhodes Xyris ($63.99) and Oleander ($49.99) necklaces.

She also wore the Harlow ($69.99) ring.

She takes Bryan on a crazy rappelling date (no thank you!). During the evening dinner, Rachel wore a sexy Jovani 36730 Jumpsuit ($480). I thought this LuLu’s Thinking Out Loud Black Backless Jumpsuit ($49) had a similar feel at a more reasonable price.

The next day, Rachel took the men to learn how to play handball while Kenny and Lee stayed back to prep for their two-on-one. I loved Rachel’s cool black and gold bomber jacket and found this Satin Brocade Bomber Jacket ($25) which you could style similarly.

Rachel turned it up for the evening party with a Mackage Alva Fitted Leather Skirt ($450), ALC Valerie Sweater ($375), Sam Edelman Kent Over the Knee Boots ($99.97), and Nan Fusco Woven Chain Dusters.  This Bishop + Young Vegan Leather Skirt ($64.99), Lace-Up Back Circle Hem Sweater ($47.92), and Ettika Chain Tassel Drop Earrings ($35) are similar looks for less:

Rachel arrives by helicopter to pick up Kenny and Lee for their face off. As she arrives we get a peak at her Robyn Rhodes Aella Ring ($74.99). You can select a variety of different colored stones.

This two-on-one ends in a cliffhanger, but I’m pretty much ready for her to be done with both of them. I liked Kenny, but he needs to grow up and learn to ignore Lee. The fact that he can’t do that is pretty unattractive.

What did you think about this two-on-one?

Bachelorette 13 – Week 4

We kick off this week with hopefully a little less crazy Lee drama (one can hope) in Hilton Head, South Carolina. Rachel gives her intro talking about having a fresh start while wearing a sold out Likely Floral Print Dress and All Saints Balfern Leather Biker Jacket ($560). This NSR
Floral Printed Halter Dress ($34.97) and this Charlotte Russe Faux Leather Moto Jacket ($38.99) are similar:

Rachel took Dean on the first one-on-one and they got to ride and drive the Goodyear Blimp! Rachel wore Phillip Lim’s Floral Cloque Bomber ($509.98), Adidas Women’s Superstar Metallic Toe Lace Up Sneakers ($100), Paige Edgemont Ultra Skinny Jeans ($143), Robyn Rhodes Rachel Necklace ($69.99), Jules Vance Small Triangle Necklace ($70), Jules Vance Oracle Ring ($110), and Jules Vance Friendship Stacking Rings ($20):

I found this Charlotte Russe Floral Border Print Bomber Jacket ($38.99) and Michael Kors Zip-Pocket Skinny Jeans ($59.99) to recreate the look for less:

I loved her lipcolor on this date, it was the Armani Lip Maestro Liquid Lipstick in 503 Red Fuschia ($38):

Besame Cosmetics Rose and Pink Masterliner Lip Pencil ($22):

Her blush was Too Faced’s Sweethearts Perfect Flush Blush in Sparkling Bellini ($30):

Here are the rest of her makeup details:

Rachel wore The Kooples Moonlight Long Sleeve Lace Shirt (sold out) to her dinner with Dean and gave him the rose. This was a unique piece but I think this Floral Lace Blouse from Alex Evenings ($129) fits the spirit of her outfit:

On the group date, Rachel takes the men to a Spelling Bee! This is now my second favorite date of all time (after the dog date with Peter)! I was a two-time spelling bee champ and love this challenge! Rachel wore a sold out off the shoulder top from Zara, PAIGE Jacqueline High Waist Crop Straight Leg Jeans ($239), and Stuart Weitzman Letsdance wedges ($272.99). I found three similar tops which I just love! The first, STATE 3/4 Sleeve Off-the-Shoulder Poplin Blouse ($53.40), the second, 7th Avenue Poplin Off the Shoulder Shirt ($34.96), the third, 7th Avenue Flounced Off-the-Shoulder Shirt with a Drama Sleeve ($38.46):

For the evening cocktail portion of the date, Rachel wore a custom navy Randi Rahm design with floral appliques. I liked the fit and flare party dress element and thought you could get the same sort of feel with this Ellen Tracy Sheer Stripe Dress ($49.99):

We end with more drama from Lee and Kenny and are left to wonder if either of them will stay on to the next week.

Bachelorette 13 – Week 3

We ended last week on a not-so-exciting cliffhanger as DeMario returned for a second chance. It was pretty obvious that Rachel wasn’t going to give to him. In other news we finally got rid of Blake and Whaboom – hooray!!

Rachel launches into week three by bringing her first group date to the Ellen Show. She wore a sold out Ramy Brook Lauren Snakeskin Cold-Shoulder Blouson Dress. The good news is that you can find a different pattern, Blush Combo, for $425 and a variety of solid colors here for $395. This Msk 3/4 Sleeve Blouson Dress ($59.99) is a similar look for less:

She sported MAC’s PatentPolish Lip Pencil in Sultana ($21):

For the evening portion of the date Rachel catches up on her kiss count and things get steamy with some of the men. Rachel looks great in a Straight Jersey Cut Out Jumpsuit by Jovani ($338). This Skies Are Blue Cut-Out Jumpsuit ($89) is similar:

You can get her smoky eyes with MAC Extra Dimension Eyeshadow in Lunar ($20):

Next, Rachel took Anthony on a one-on-one date to Rodeo Drive…on horseback. She wore a sold out Three Dots Abstract Netted Lace Jacket. This 14th & Union Lace Bomber Jacket ($32.97) is similar:

Anthony and Rachel continued their date on the rooftop and it must have been chilly because she kept her coat on the entire time. She wore a Cinq à Sept Juno Cutout Mini Dress ($164.25) and the Mackage Loni Long Double Face Wool Coat in Mineral ($440):

Rachel wore Charlotte Tilbury’s Very Victoria Lipstick ($34) again:

For the mud wrestling date, Rachel wore a Henley by Three Dots. I don’t think this is the exact one she had, but this Sofia Henley by Three Dots ($30.73) is similar. I also found this Splendid Women’s Thermal Long Sleve Henley Tee ($84):

After everyone got cleaned up, Rachel changed into a Rag & Bone two piece crop top and skirt and DSTLD Womens Wool Blanket Maxi Coat ($180). I found this similar Marled Surplice Crop Top ($8) and Knit Skirt ($5) to recreate her look:

Rachel’s lips were lined with MAC’s Pro Longwear Lip Pencil ($21):

Rachel’s rose ceremony look was from Randi Rahm. This Adrianna Papell Beaded Halter Gown ($289) is similar:

I loved her eyeshadow here and it is Danessa Myricks Colorfix in Titanium ($18):

This episode ended with Eric drama. I love that after so many seasons of this show people still waste their precious time with the lead to talk about other people. That is the quickest way to go home…every time. To be continued next week…

Bachelorette 13 – Week 2

This might be one of my favorite and least favorite weeks of The Bachelorette ever! The highlight was Copper and Peter! Boy did we need that pick me up to get us through the rest of the drama!

The first group date brings us a special guest appearance by Mila Kunis and Ashton Kutcher who host a “husband competition.” After seeing how the contestants performed I probably would have sent all of them home. Rachel wore a Self-Portrait Floral Jacquard Sleeveless Mini Dress ($311). I found this BP Floral Print Cross Back Dress ($45) look for less:

You can see her makeup from this date here:

At the cocktail party the men definitely didn’t deserve this hot Michelle Mason Plunge Zipper Dress (sold out) that Rachel wore. But Dean brought it back and earned the group date rose. This Aglow Bodycon Midi Dress from Lulu’s ($54) is similar:

Those red lips were fierce, but not so great for kissing Dean:

Rachel decides to take Peter on the first one-on-one date a.k.a. the best date in Bachelor Nation history! We meet Rachel’s adorable pup Copper and go to Barkfest where Peter wins everyone over. I have to say, I’m loving Peter right now – he seems really genuine and it looks like they have great chemistry together. On the evening portion of the date, Rachel and Peter bond even further. Rachel wore the Saylor Maya Floral Lace Slip Dress (sold out). I found this Bardot Botanica Lace Dress ($139) or this AQUA Floral Lace Dress ($69) to recreate the look:

The basketball date was total DRAMA. This was so annoying because it was obviously so producer driven. Why waste our time and even have this girl come on screen?! Rachel seemed annoyed by the whole thing too – it was just juvenile and dumb. Rachel wore the Trouve Chiffon Bomber Jacket (sold out). This Sculpt Mesh Bomber Jacket from Zella ($98) is similar:

You can get her makeup details here:

After the DeMario debacle, Rachel brought some sparkle to the cocktail party with a sequin babydoll dress. I found this similar Michael Stars Sequin Sleeveless Mini Dress ($84.99):

You can find Rachel’s sultry evening makeup here:

Rachel went full on glam at the rose ceremony wearing a black and gold MacDuggal Flash Dress ($338) and Rachel Zoe Viv Sandals ($178.80):

These INC Sadiee Strappy Dress Sandals ($99.50) are similar:

You can see Rachel’s golden goddess look here:

Before the night is over, DeMario makes another appearance (who knows why…I suspect producers). Will DeMario stay or go? Tune in next week…

Bachelorette 13 – Week 1

Eleven weeks was too long to go without a Bachelor Nation show. The good news is that Mike Fleiss is adding another show to the roster, The Bachelor Winter Games, scheduled to premiere February 2018. So I assume this will overlap somehow with The Bachelor, we shall see. I was so pumped for Rachel Lindsay, that I did a quick premiere post with her amazing behind the scenes look. So grab your Bachelor Nation wine and let’s get started!

As is the custom, Rachel had to get advice on being the Bachelorette, so she turned to Corinne, Raven, Kristina, Whitney, Alexis and Jasmine. I spotted Kendra Scott’s Naomi Ring ($130) and I loved her feather lariat necklace but couldn’t find it anywhere.

Kristina was also wearing Kendra Scott’s Elisa Pendant Necklace ($65):

Rachel’s premiere dress was custom designed by Randi Rahm, a favorite designer of the Bachelor/Bachelorette. This dress was heavy with 30 pounds of white beads and Swarovski crystals. To recreate this look you can try Randi Rahm’s Sylvia Embellished Gown (worn by Raven on Nick’s finale) $6,800. Or this great look for less, the JS Collections Jacquard Halter Brocade Mermaid Gown ($248):

Gina Modica, the Bachelor’s makeup artist, shared all of the makeup she used to create Rachel’s look:

These are the products I used for @TheRachLindsay night 1 look on @BacheloretteABC . #skincare @glycelenekim #skinprep #Glycelenebeautyserum ⠀ #opalescenteyeserum ⠀ #nerolinectar⠀ #rejuvenationcreme ⠀ #orangeblossomoxygeninfusion ⠀ By #glycelene #lashes I used Medium and Short Double Flare individual lashes.

A post shared by Gina Modica (@ginamo11) on

Jane Iredale Amazing Matte Loose Finishing Powder ($36)

Giorgio Armani Eye Tint #8 ($39)

This color is called “Flannel” and it looks like #25 was a limited edition color.

NARS Galapagos and Mekong Eyeshadow ($26 each)

Make Up For Ever Waterproof Cream Shadow Aqua Black ($23)

So this is technically a shadow, but she’s using it as an eyeliner in this instance.

Kevyn Aucoin The Pure Powder Glow, Neolita ($42)

Charlotte Tilbury Iconic Nude Lipcheat Lipliner ($22)

Charlotte Tilbury Very Victoria Lipstick ($34)

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?
