Mistresses “Rebuild” Recap

The second season premiere of Mistresses wasn’t exactly what I expected and neither was the wardrobe. I was a little disappointed that they completely skipped over what happened to Savi (Alyssa Milano) and the baby…as well as Karen (Yunjin Kim). I feel like they are trying to restart the show by just wiping clean everything that happened last season and moving on to other story lines. We’ll see what happens in the next few episodes.

The most important part of the show, the fashion, was interesting. There were some great hits and then there were some awful pieces that made me cringe. I am only going to focus on my favorite pieces of the premiere, but if there was something else you had to have, let me know.

Karen Kim

I loved the opening scene with Karen’s hot Christian Louboutin Filo Pumps ($795). If you’re not ready to commit to a pair of Louboutins yet, try these Pour La Victoire Women’s Irina Platform Pump ($42.84):

Karen’s Flower Print Blue Shift Dress from Zara may be sold out, but this Blue Sleeveless Floral Bodycon Dress knockoff from SheInside is a perfect match ($16.67):

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 11.30.34 PM

Karen wears the sold-out Evangeline dress by Reiss for the art show. I found a similar Lace Paneled Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 ($15.80):


Savi Davis

Savi looks great in the opening scene and we realize that she pulled through. Her red maxi dress is by Splendid ($118). If that is out of your price range, try this Forever 21 version for $12.80:

Screen Shot 2014-06-25 at 11.48.37 PM

Savi wore a Vince Paper Leather Vest ($479). I found this Laser Cut Faux Leather Moto Vest ($49.99) from The Limited for a similar look:

Vince Vest

For Savi’s brief appearance at the art show, she wore a Haute Hippie Asymmetrical Side Tuck Dress ($485). This Heather Women’s Asymmetric Surplice Dress ($30.94) is similar:

haute hippie

As Savi is trying to get her Om on, she wears the Plush Marled Sweater Leggings ($84):


Joss Carver

I loved Joss’ (Jes Macallan) ALC Savile leather-trimmed calf hair jacket, which you can rent here. You can get the look for less with this Contrast Trimming Leopard Print Jacket ($31.39):

Screen Shot 2014-06-26 at 10.59.30 PM

Joss’ gift to herself for almost landing the Punky Brewster account is this Helmut Lang Wither Leather Jacket ($941.50). I found this BB Dakota Tyne Leather Jacket for $286 to get a look for less:

Helmut Lang

Joss wears fabulous red Jeffrey Campbell Barnes Booties ($99.96) while she talks to Harry (Brett Tucker):

jeffrey campbell April Malloy

I like about half of April’s (Rochelle Aytes) clothes. I don’t really have a bohemian style, but she makes it look effortless. I liked this open weave cardigan she wore at the beginning of the episode and found a similar Democracy Crochet Sweater Cardigan ($78):

Screen Shot 2014-06-30 at 3.10.09 PM

At the art show, April wore this awesome Whiskey Leather Biker Jacket from Zara ($249):

When April goes to visit her sexy artist, she wears a Drapey Rib Cardigan by Splendid ($78) and the Hayden necklace from Robyn Rhodes ($70):

While sanding, April wears a Tank Top by Splendid ($22):

Summer 2014 TV Preview

I’m a little late on this one, but better late than never, right? Set your DVRs for what is shaping up to be a great summer lineup.

May 19

The Bachelorette (ABC)

Andi Dorfman is kicking things off on May 19 with another season of our favorite show. This season will be interesting because one of the contestants, Eric Hill, has since passed away. Hopefully, it will give people a chance to get to know him and maybe he will inspire us. Here’s a little taste of what we have in store this season:

You can read about Andi’s previous adventures on The Bachelor here.

June 2

Mistresses (ABC)

So I’m going to be honest here, I never finished last season. I was going to finish blogging it and I was saving them to watch later. So I think I am going to have a guilty pleasure Mistresses marathon before the season starts. This might be fun as I have two big trips coming up and I could probably get through the rest of the episodes on the plane.

You can catch up on my previous Mistresses recaps here.

June 11

Suits (USA)

We just watched the Suits season three finale, but not to worry, season four starts on June 11. The hubs will be happy to hear that – we love this show. In the finale, Mike decided to leave Pearson Spector and go legit. That was a bittersweet moment, but it will be interesting to see what happens to the characters now. Here is a preview of season four:

Graceland (USA)

This is another show that I started blogging about and saved the last few episodes to watch later than never did. Right now Comcast is offering the entire season On Demand so you can get caught up before the new season starts. You can also watch all of season one online here. I will definitely be taking advantage of this if not only for Daniel Sunjata. Here is a preview of season 2:

Here are my recaps of the first half of last season if you want to check it out.

June 22

True Blood (HBO)

So sad that it’s the last season of True Blood, but there are a lot of questions to be answered in Season 7. What happened to Eric? We thought Sookie would finally end up with Warlow, but he turned out to be a jerk. Surprisingly, Bill and company saved her, is there still a chance for those crazy kids to work things out? But hold up – fast forward six months into the future and Sookie is apparently with Alcide (what a rip off if you had been waiting forever to see them hook up and they just glossed over it!). Sam is the mayor and Tara may have reconciled with her mother once and for all. The preview for the final season looks pretty good, I can’t wait:

For my previous True Blood recaps, click here.

Falling Skies (TNT)

Season three definitely delivered on the finale and as we thought the Volm were up to no good. The 2nd Mass’ saviors turned out to be their downfall. Karen finally bought the bullet, but we did find out that Anne and Alexis were still alive. It will be interesting to see how the 2nd Mass gets out of this newest challenge now that the Eshpeni are gone.

If you have no idea what I’m talking about but want to get into Falling Skies, check out my recaps from Season 3 here.

June 24

Covert Affairs (USA)

Annie went all the way last season and finally killed Henry. I’m not sure what that will mean for season 5, but here’s a sneak peek:

June 30

Under the Dome (CBS)

This is another show that I watch with the hubs. This show is so weird, but we keep watching it, go figure… I assume that since it is back for Season two, the network will step it up a bit. With Stephen King at the helm, this is bound to get interesting.

July 6

Witches of East End (Lifetime)

I forgot about this one until Kerry from Till Then Smile Often reminded me. I watched the first season and this really warmed up at the finale. The portal to Asgard was opened and something came out, who knows what…Killian and Dash got their powers, unbeknownst to them and it will be interesting to watch them learn to use them in season two.

August 4

Bachelor in Paradise (ABC)

I cannot wait for this show. I am actually more excited about this than I am for Andi’s season. I can’t wait to see who will be case and how this show will work. More to come on this one soon I hope!

bachelor in paradise

What shows are you most looking forward to this summer?

Mistresses “Payback” Recap

Savi (Alyssa Milano) gathers the girls to come clean about everything. I can’t help feeling that she did all of this to make herself feel better. What would it have hurt to wait for the paternity results – she may not have needed to say anything at all. She hasn’t come clean with her sister Joss (Jess Macallen) and Joss will no doubt be hurt that she was the last to know. April (Rachelle Aytes) divulges that she slept with Richard (Cameron Bender) in the store.

Joss wears a sold out Cynthia Steffe Red Alana Vneck Colorblock Sheath Dress. Cynthia Steffe has a similar dress here for $136.80 and New Direction has a $59.99 option here.

Karen (Yunjin Kim) stays to reminisce with Savi about their history together. She gives Savi good advice to give Harry time and let him come to her. Karen wears a black skirt and a green Theory blouse (sold out). I found a similar Halogen Tie-Neck Blouse ($44):

theory top

 ID Source: Possessionista 


Savi doesn’t take her advice (shocker) and goes to the restaurant to see Harry and try to find out when he’s coming home. It didn’t go very well and she didn’t get much of a response from Harry. She should have just left it alone – this isn’t something she can fix overnight. She goes into work and tells Dom (Jason George) that she is pregnant (DUMB!) and that the baby is Harry’s.

Savi again goes to visit Harry – she is really pushing things and it is sort of annoying. She just dumped a lot of stuff on Harry and she doesn’t even give him a day to digest the information. She tells him that she will quit her job for him and accuses him of sleeping with his hostess…wow, she just can’t help herself.

Dom confronts her about interviewing at another firm and tells her she is crazy to throw away everything she has worked for. Savi wears a Michael Kors Boat Neck Dress (sold out). I found a Tahari dress for $40.80 that is similar.

orange dress


When Karen arrives at the office, she finds out that they have been robbed. Nothing is taken until she discovers that her computer files have been downloaded. She goes to have lunch with Savi who tells her that Harry is sleeping with his hostess. Karen tells her that she is acting crazy and needs to back off (good advice). They also discover that Mrs. Gray has been out of the country and is not interested in her insurance money in the least.

Karen discovers that Sam broke into her office and left her a picture that says “Missing You. Sam” – creepy.


April meets with Miranda (Kate Beahan) to give her a payout. She gives a small amount and tells Miranda it will be the first of many payments. Miranda doesn’t seem to thrilled with that idea. Richard has to cancel their date because they couldn’t get a babysitter. He picks her up the next afternoon to take her to a Dodger’s game, but before they can leave Miranda shows up and ruins the date. April ultimately decides to sell part of her store to get the money for Miranda.


Joss is really pushing it with her new boss at work. I can’t believe she talks to him like that! Joss stops by Savi’s house to borrow some jewelry and discovers a What to Expect When You’re Expecting Book and automatically assumes that Savi is pregnant. Joss runs into April at a boutique and tells her that she knows Savi is pregnant. April immediately calls Savi and tells her to come clean with Joss soon.

Olivier gives Joss a specific assignment to sell an unsellable house. She tries her usual routine of charming the customer. She loses the listing and Olivier isn’t happy with her results. He tells her she is the person that thinks her way is the only way…he’s not wrong. She seems really immature in this episode.

Savi finally confesses everything to Joss and Joss blows up at her for keeping a huge secret. They have other sister issues that come into play and Savi ends up judging her for her lifestyle.

What do you think about Savi’s decisions in this episode? Will Harry forgive her?

Mistresses “Decisions, Decisions” Recap

Decisions, Decisions…that’s what our four Mistresses need to make this week. Joss (Jess Macallan) treats us to a steamy opening scene before we dig into their problems.


As Harry (Brett Tucker) kisses Savi (Alyssa Milano) goodbye, he notices that she has a metallic taste to her breath. I thought that was sort of a stretch, but I guess it’s a real phenomenon with pregnant women. It’s called Dysgeusia. She wears a Karen Millen Sculptured Peplum Dress ($380):

As Savi arrives at the office, she see Dom (Jason George) flirting with another woman. Harry calls her and has figured out that her metallic breath could mean that she’s pregnant. Dom’s flirting doesn’t sit well with her, so she decides to give his “friend” a boatload of work that will keep her busy for the entire day.

Harry is excited that Savi might be pregnant so he buys her a pregnancy test. She has to run off to work and agrees to take it later that evening. She is wearing a royal blue dress with an asymmetrical collar. I couldn’t find the dress, but I did find a similar one from Bebe ($114.99):

Bebe Asymmetric Cowl Dress

Dom confronts Savi about her behavior towards the new paralegal accusing her of being jealous. She says that he has been able to leave their affair unscathed and she has to deal with the consequences. He admits that he still has feelings for her and that he doesn’t regret what happened between them.

Harry insists that Savi take the pregnancy test, but she ends up getting her period seemingly solving all of her problems. Unfortunately, she finds out that she is still pregnant after visiting her doctor. She gets very emotional during the appointment. The doctor says that she has high blood pressure changes and she needs to work on reducing her stress.

At the end of the episode, Savi decides to come clean with Harry and tells him about the affair and the pregnancy…YIKES!


Joss is gearing up for another workout with Alex (Shannyn Sossamon). Alex has finally broken up with her girlfriend, Sally (Joanne McQuinn) and is moving out. She asks Joss to help her move. After their hike, Joss decides to hop in the shower and Alex decides to join her. Does anyone else find that a little weird? Just a few hours after she slept with one guy she is getting it on with Alex (which Alex was fully aware of). I’m all for choosing your own lifestyle, but if I was Alex I wouldn’t be okay with being on the second string.

They go for snacks in the kitchen and almost run into Harry, but he backs away before they know he is there. Joss and Alex have the relationship talk and Joss tells her that she isn’t gay and that she’s not a relationship person. They decide to keep things light for now. Joss wears a California Republic shirt ($19.95). I found a similar version in white and grey:

California Love TShirt

Harry confronts Joss about her friendship with Alex. He questions her messing up the friendship with sex and she gets mad at him. He is right and it is already obvious that Alex cares more about Joss than she does about Alex.

Sally confronts Joss as she is helping Alex move. She says that she can’t blame Alex for falling in love with Joss. Joss doesn’t believe it, but Sally insists. It definitely gives her something to think about. Joss ends up blowing Alex off for lunch and spending time with her current boy toy.

She realizes how immature he is and decides to meet up with Alex instead, leaving her guy alone in her room.


April (Rachelle Aytes) meets with her financial advisor to start looking into possibly giving Miranda (Kate Beahan) some of Paul’s estate money. She gets interrupted by a call from Lucy’s school saying that she didn’t show up, even though April dropped her off. She wears a blue crochet tank top over and orange tank. I found a similar crochet top from BB Dakota ($34):

BB Dakota Covina Crochet Tank

When she gets to school she finds out that Lucy skipped school with Richard’s (Cameron Bender) daughter to get Selena Gomez’s autograph. After a conversation with her daughter, she realizes that she has never done an impulsive thing her entire life.

Richard comes to visit April at the store and she finally tells him everything that has been happening with Paul and Miranda. She also confesses to him how she has only slept with one man her entire life. He takes that as an invitation and they end up sleeping together in the store! Now that is what I call impulsive!!


Karen (Yunjin Kim) gets invited to speak at a conference where Hilary Clinton is also speaking. Her celebration is interrupted by a visit from Mr. Newsome (Gary Dourdan). She wears a Black Halo ‘Jackie’ Belted Gabardine Sheath Dress ($345):

Mr. Newsome would like copies of Karen’s notes from her sessions with Thomas Grey (which she happened to delete in the previous episode). This prompts her to meet with Mrs. Grey to try and figure out what new information Newsome might have.

Elizabeth Grey visits Karen at her office and decides that she doesn’t care about the insurance money anymore. She tells Karen that she needs to tell the insurance investigator that Thomas was suicidal so she can put the whole thing behind her. Karen resists at first, but then decides to do it. She is wearing the Calvin Klein Robe from Week 1:


What did you think about Savi’s decision to tell Harry about the affair? Do you think she should have waited until she got the paternity results back?

Mistresses “A Kiss is Just a Kiss” Recap

Episode 4 begins with Joss (Jes Macallan) and Harry (Brett Tucker) bantering in the kitchen, while Savi (Alyssa Milano) is at a doctor’s appointment confirming her pregnancy. The characters keep falling deeper into their own problems.


Savi tells Karen (Yunjin Kim) and April (Rachelle Aytes) that she is pregnant and they try to make her feel better by telling her that the baby is probably Harry’s (fat chance!). She is convinced that she has to tell Harry the truth, which I think is silly. I love how she thinks that everything will be okay if she just tells the truth…WRONG – he will probably kick your cheating butt to the curb!

She wears a sold-out Zac Posen dress in this scene. I found a similar asymmetrical cut dress by Ivy & Blu for $91.90:

Zac Posen Dress

Zac Posen Dress

Savi sets up an appointment to test the paternity of her baby. The appointment runs long and Savi needs to get Dominic (Jason George) to fill in for her in court. This makes up for her getting him kicked off the case in the previous episode.

She can test the paternity of the baby, but it will take a few weeks to get the results back. Now she just needs to get a sample from Harry.


Joss is building her friendship with Alex (Shannyn Sossamon) and Sally by hiking, although Joss isn’t much of a hiker. She wears the LuluLemon Wunder Under Crop pants in the Mirage Indigo print. You can still find some on eBay for around $100.

Lululemon Wunder Under Crop Pants

Sally confides in Joss that she has been a good friend to Alex and that they have been fighting less since they have been looking for a house. There is some foreshadowing here that Joss might become a problem in their relationship.

Joss talks to Savi about Alex’s relationship and she decides that Alex and Sally should break up because Alex is miserable. This just seems ridiculous to me. This is definitely a case of someone sticking their nose in where it doesn’t belong.

Alex invites Joss to a party because Sally had to cancel. Alex is getting hit on at the party and Joss pretends to be her girlfriend and kisses her (WTF was she thinking? So inappropriate and out of left field). Alex is upset by this and leaves.

Joss wears an All Saints Beige Restrain Skirt, which is sold out. I found two alternative options at Ann Taylor ($275) and Saks Fifth Avenue ($132):

All Saints Skirt

She also wears the Brandy Melville Mirella tank ($24.70) which is sold out, but there is a similar one here for $36 (ID Source: WornOnTV). Alex wears a sold out Betsey Johnson maxi dress, I found another maxi dress from Asos for $81.46 that is just as cute and would work for an evening event.

Alex ends up showing up at Joss’ door and tells her that she broke up with Sally. She temporarily moves in with Joss at Harry and Savi’s guest house.


April gets a visit from an attorney representing Miranda Nickelby (Kate Beahan) informing her that Miranda plans to sue if she refuses to pay child support. April meets with Savi to discuss her options. Savi is the voice of reason and tells her not to give Miranda a dime until she has proof. Savi gives April good advice and tells her to handle it in court. April doesn’t want her daughter to find out and is hesitant about going to court.

She wears the Hayley Oversized Top from Gypsy 05 that is sold out, but you can get the same print in a button-up version ($187) or in a similar print ($143):

Gypsy 05 top

Gypsy 05 top

April meets Miranda at her store to try to get more information about her and Paul’s relationship. She finds out that Miranda and Paul had been seeing each other for over a year and that Paul had planned to leave April. During the conversation Scotty hurts himself and they have to take him to the hospital. April pays the medical bills and I believe this is when she changes her mind and starts to feel sorry for Miranda’s situation.

At the end of the episode we see Miranda paying off the attorney who was really an actor. There is something fishy going on here.


Karen finishes up a yoga class and finds Sam’s (Erik Stocklin) wallet in her car. Just when she thought she was done with him, he left something behind. Now this is typically a chick move, the ole’ “Oh, I left something at your place, can I come and pick it up?” Funny how Sam is not too far away from desperate.

Karen finds Sam's Wallet

Karen finds Sam’s Wallet

The smart thing to do in this situation would be to mail the wallet back to Sam, but in four episodes, I’ve learned that Karen is not that bright when it comes to this kid. She instead takes the wallet to his apartment and tries to squeeze it in his mailbox. She is surprised to run into him and she finds out that he decided to drop out of school.

Sam invites Karen up to the apartment so he can explain that he is dropping out of school to pursue photography. He invites her to dinner (WARNING: Karen, what are you thinking?). Sam tries to kiss Karen and she rushes off. I can’t believe she didn’t see this coming, Sam is totally obsessed with her.

I think Joss and Karen are playing with fire, what did you think about Episode 4? Savi is in a big mess, it will be interesting to see how she handles it.

Mistresses “Breaking and Entering” Recap

The plot thickens in Episode 3 as the characters are all dealing with their respective fallouts.


Savi and Harry are doing better than ever, which leads me to believe that she is settling into a false happiness before the fall. I hope she enjoys her time with Harry, because I have a feeling that her whole world is about to fall apart.

Savi is having a hard time working with Dominic after their affair. She had on the Natalia dress from Rachel Zoe (sold out) which I thought showed way too much cleavage for someone who is trying to put the kibosh on an office romance. This Calvin Klein dress ($89.98) provides a similar, more professional look:

Savi has a very sensual dream about Dominic, which prompts her to book a second honeymoon with Harry. He turns her down because they are in debt from the restaurant and the conversation doesn’t go very well.

Savi tries to cut back at work and talks to her boss trying to give Dominic some of her workload. It doesn’t go as she had planned and she ends up taking away the case from Dominic…whoops!

April comes by to finally make up with Savi. April tells her that the worst is over, which is a huge jinx, she may as well have invited trouble right through the door. Savi wears a black Calvin Klein Robe ($78):

At the end of the episode we see Savi taking pregnancy test and it is positive…uh oh!


April has been hiding her new discovery about Paul from her daughter and it is getting harder. She is still hung up on Richard, but he won’t give her the time of day after she stood him up twice. She wears a Crochet Poncho by Autofor ($29.98):

She tries to explain what happened and he takes it in stride and doesn’t say anything, leaving her hanging. April ends up running into him at Josslyn’s party, which isn’t so bad because she is looking fabulous in a Ralph Lauren One Shoulder Dress. This is one of my favorite designers and I have purchased a number of his dresses on eBay. This particular one is sold out, but you can still find it in your size here, if you don’t mind searching a bit.

Ralph Lauren One Shoulder Dress

April is able to talk to Richard and he understands her situation, but tells her that she has a lot of unresolved issues that she needs to address. He does say that she is stunning, so there might be an opportunity to rekindle this later.


Karen gets a visit from Tom’s wife to talk about Sam. Apparently, he has dropped out of school and plans to live in Tom’s loft (their former love nest).

I found a few options for Karen’s wrap blouse, a Cheetah print wrap top from Jones New York ($59) and a Vince Camuto dotted wrap top ($59):

Karen's Wrap Blouse

Karen’s Wrap Blouse

Karen is worried that she may have left something at the apartment. She sneaks in to double check, but inadvertently leaves her sunglasses behind when Sam almost catches her.

Savi tells her that she needs to move on and she decides to invite Jacob, her colleague, to Josslyn’s party. She seems to be having a great time with Jacob, until she gets a call from Sam asking her to pick him up from the hospital for drinking and driving. He lets Karen know that he found the sunglasses in his dad’s apartment. He gave them to his mom, but they weren’t hers and now she knows that Tom was having an affair.

Karen wore an elegant Tadashi Shoji lace dress ($324):

Joss gets into the office and she discovers that she has a new boss, Olivier, who doesn’t give her a second look. This is a little different from her previous setup where she was sleeping with the boss. He tells her that she is dressed inappropriately for the office (which she was, but it was a cute look).

Her sparkly peep toe pumps are adorable! I found a look for less at Target for $20.98:

De Blossom Rosemary Glitter Peep Toe Pump

Her Ted Baker floral Larinda skirt is sold out, but this Gabriella Rocha Jeanne Floral Print Flare Skirt ($44.99) from Zappos does the trick. It definitely highlights her amazing legs:

Olivier texts Joss to meet him at a hotel, and she thinks that she may have won him over after all. She makes an entrance with a stunning blue Zac Posen dress. It is sold out, but you can still get the look with this blue halter dress ($90.99):

Zac Posen Dress

Olivier pulls the rug out from under her and tells her he is redistributing her clients to the other agents. He challenges her to sell a problem house if she wants to get them back. Joss gets creative and decides to show off the ugly house by embracing it for what it really is…a party house. She invites all of the girls to attend the party and hopefully sell the house.

Joss wears a fabulous party dress from Aidan Maddox ($188):

Joss ends up getting three offers on the house and sells it for $100,000 over asking price. She tells Olivier that she will wear whatever she wants to work (super inappropriate, but it is TV after all).

Juicier and Juicier! What do you think Savi will do or should do?

Mistresses “The Morning After” Recap

The second episode of Mistresses was just as hot and juicy as the first one. Each of the characters is dealing with the issues that came up last week.


The affair with Dominic is taking its toll on Savi and she is taking it out on everyone else. Savi tells Karen and April that she cheated on Harry. Karen is very understanding, but April doesn’t want to hear it. Karen advises her to figure out why she cheated before she thinks about telling Harry. Savi was much too quick to tell April about her affair and should have kept it to herself.

Savi waited all day to talk to Dominic and insists that their affair was a mistake. I find this funny because “the lady doth protest too much.” He reminds her that she kissed him.

You can get Savi’s grey shirtdress look from Adrianna Papell ($118):

Harry finally makes time to apologize to Savi, but she has to cut it short when Dominic pops in (AWKWARD!).

She has on a Tahari jacket that was modified by the costume designer. You can visit Possessionista for the full details and you can get the full suit for $179.99:

Savi meets with Mrs. Gray again and sets the scene for future investigation into his death. Savi knows that she assisted Tom in his suicide, but Mrs. Gray doesn’t tell her the truth.

Savi and Harry finally get to resolve their issues about having a baby and decide to put it on hold for a while. She chickens out of telling him about her indiscretion and they have makeup sex.  Dominic calls her, but she ignores the call.


For most of the episode, Joss works hard to help Savi and Harry reconcile. Unfortunately, she doesn’t know the whole story.

Joss is still working with her clients Alex and Sally to find a home. She meets Alex for lunch and convinces her to check out a newly listed home.

I didn’t even notice Joss’ magazine clutch until OnScreenStyle pointed it out. It is a really cool piece and I definitely need to get one! You can get this one on Etsy for $58.50:

Joss takes Alex on a new home tour that seems to hold a lot of kinky surprises. This doesn’t phase Alex who is apparently versed in the art of Japanese bondage. There is some heavy foreshadowing going on between the two of them here.

Joss wears a hot pink bodycon dress. As a professional, I’m not sure that I would wear something this form-fitting to show houses, but it seems to work for her. I found this hot pink Jones New York Dress for $64.99 that would work for me:

Jones New York Dress

We later see Joss trying out her new bondage trick with the latest boy toy. Alex calls and it sounds like things are a little better with her and Sally, but Joss leaves her man tied up while getting all the details.

As a Star War nerd, I LOVE Joss’ oversized vintage Star Wars shirt! I found this similar one from Junk Food for $30 which I need ASAP:

April is freaking out about her Paul’s infidelity and asks the girls to meet with her. Savi advises her to investigate this woman because the timing is interesting. The other woman has shown up only after April received the insurance check. We find out that the other woman’s name is Miranda and Savi’s research seems to back up her story. The more April looks into it, the more she can’t deny that it’s true.

April wears a floral peasant top from Ellen Tracy. I found this floral top from Michael Kors ($55.65), which is a lot brighter but gives you a similar look:

April finally decides to confront Miranda and finds out that she is in fact looking for money.


Karen is still dealing with Tom’s son Sam. He is nothing but persistent. Savi gives her good advice to stay away from him, but she doesn’t take it. She wants to face the problem head on and agrees to have coffee with Sam.

Karen wears a beautiful floral Karen Millen Dress, you can get the look with this Mirror Floral Print Dress from Asos in Regular and Curve sizes ($76.36):

Karen has a good talk with Sam over coffee and seems to wrap everything up before he goes to college. He spills coffee on her two tone peplum dress, which is a shame because it was adorable. I found something similar from Anne Klein ($129). You have to pair this with the orange belt ($29.99); it really makes the look:

Tom’s insurance investigator meets with Karen and could she have acted more suspicious? He leaves, but not before he mentions checking out her paperwork, which we saw her shred in Episode 1. She was wearing a leopard chiffon dress, which I couldn’t find but I did find a professional leopard dress from Rebecca Taylor ($89.99) that would flatter anyone:

Sam stops by her office to offer to pay for her dry cleaning, but she blows up and throws him out. She could have gotten rid of him without hurting his feelings like that. She just had to hang on long enough until he left for college.

What did you think of this week’s Mistresses?

Mistresses Recap

I am in love with this show already! Hot, hot, hot and this is only the pilot! I’ve heard comparisons to Desperate Housewives, but I think it has the potential to be even better (let’s be honest, after the first two seasons, DH pretty much lost its luster).

This show already has a lot of potential, not to mention Alyssa Milano! She has always been one of my favorites and I loved her on Charmed.

Possessionista was lucky enough to snag an interview with the costume designer Roemehl Hawkins that you can read here. Hawkins is also styling Devious Maids on Lifetime which is another one of my summer shows to watch.

Here is a breakdown of the characters and the storylines from the pilot:

April (Rochelle Aytes): April recently lost her husband and is having a hard time moving on. She tries to go on a date with another single dad but she keeps receiving phantom phone calls and believes that they are some sort of sign from her late husband. After Savi tracks down the source of the call we find out that they are from another woman. This woman confronts April and tells her that she was in love with her husband and that they had a son together. What a blow! It will be interesting to see how this affects her character.

April’s sold out striped poncho is from Graham & Spencer ($407) (ID: OnScreenStyle), a similar match was hard to track down, but I did find this Striped Linen Poncho from Ralph Lauren ($159):



April’s Joie Della Dress ($398) is unavailable, but I really liked this Floral Maxi Dress at Dillards ($128):

Josslyn (Jes Macallan): Josslyn seems to be the bad girl of the series and Savannah’s younger sister. She is like the little devil on your shoulder (in a good way), pushing you out of your comfort zone. In the premiere we see her struggle with becoming a kept woman as her boss’ mistress. She ultimately decides against it and moves into Savannah’s pool house.

We first see Josslyn in a Striped Bandage Dress by Guess (ID: Possessionista) which seems to be sold out everywhere.

I found a few alternatives that would work depending on your price range and body type:

Bebe Contour Ribbed Bodycon Dress ($69)

BB Dakota Colorblock Dress ($71.40)

Guess Azmara Cutout Dress ($139.98)

Herve Leger Bandage Dress ($1050) I think this was my favorite, but WAY out of my price range.

Josslyn’s NSF Stripe Shorts ($59) are sold out, but you can try these Striking Striped Shorts from Nanette Lepore ($198):

You can get the look with this Anne Klein pencil skirt ($349) or this leather mini skirt from American Apparel ($125).

Her black jade ring is from Robyn Rhodes ($76):

Her sequin color block dress is sold out, but Boston Proper has a lookalike color block sequin dress for ($139):

Josslyn’s navy jumpsuit is still available for $47 (ID: On Screen Style):

Karen (Yunjin Kim): We last saw Yunjin Kim on Lost (another one of my favorites) and I was looking forward to seeing her in a different role. She didn’t disappoint in the pilot. Karen is a therapist who was sleeping with one of her married patients. She started an affair with him when he discovered that he had cancer and had a slim chance of surviving. Karen attends the funeral and the family reveres her, even asking her to sit with them during the service. The son discovers that his father was having an affair and tries to get Karen to reveal who the other woman was. She instead tries to help him get closure, but that goes awry when he tries to ask her out on a date. To make matters worse, Karen prescribed him drugs that his wife used to help him end his life. Savi’s firm takes on the case and Savi advises her to cut ties with the family to avoid a malpractice suit. This is turning out to be a very complicated affair.

Who didn’t love Karen’s bathroom? Apparently I should have become a therapist. I will just have to settle for her Calvin Klein Robe ($75):

Savannah/Savi: (Alyssa Milano): Savannah and her husband are trying to get pregnant, but having no luck. It seems like their entire sex life has been focused on having a baby and not enjoying themselves – which is too bad because they seem to have great chemistry in the opening scene. After a visit with the doctor, they find out that Savi’s husband is having some trouble with his swimmers which is why they can’t get pregnant. This seems to take a toll on their marriage and Savi tries to repair it by dressing up in provocative lingerie, but her husband shuts her down. Her colleague notices the lingerie during a meeting and tells her that if she shows him what she is wearing for five seconds he will finish all of her work for her. That scene was HOT, and I can’t believe she did that. This ultimately leads her to office sex with her colleague. I kept thinking how stupid that was because what happens if this guy knocks her up? There is no hiding that! I have a feeling this is going to mess with her head for the rest of the season.

Savi’s Blue Mini Dress – funny how she wore this to role play a mistress with her husband, then ends up having an affair at the end of the episode. The original is sold out, but I think this Cross-Front Dress from Victoria’s Secret in Bang-Bang Blue (on sale for $39.50) achieves the same purpose:

Savi’s wishbone necklace came from the designer’s personal jewelry collection (ID: OnScreenStyle), but Kohl’s has a diamond wishbone pendant on sale for $40:

There you have it – all the Mistresses action in a nutshell. I can’t wait to see what happens next!

If you missed the pilot you can still watch it online here.

For more information on Summer TV premieres check out my Summer TV Preview Extravaganza post.

Summer TV Preview Extravaganza

I love TV. Every fall I used to get a schedule together of all the new shows I was going to watch and what I could reasonably tape on my VCR. Many of the networks have changed this format so now I get Fall and Summer premieres. And I have a DVR which means even more shows to watch. It’s like Christmas!

Here are the shows that I plan to tune in for this summer. Some are returning and some are brand new:

FOX The Goodwin Games – premieres on May 20 at 8:30 p.m.

The show focuses on siblings who inherit a fortune from their father but only if they can play by his rules. It is the newest endeavor from the executive producers of How I Met Your Mother and stars Scott Foley who I have crushed on since Felicity. The pilot is currently screening on Hulu so you can check it out in advance. The reviews look promising so far.

ABC The Bachelorette – Season 9 premieres on May 27 at 9 p.m.

I am slightly obsessed with the Bachelor and Bachelorette so I can’t wait for a new season! Desiree Hartsock is this year’s bachelorette. You might remember her emotional exit during Sean Lowe’s season. If you want to know who Desiree picks and spoilers from the season make sure to read Reality Steve’s blog.

If you tune in on Monday night, Desiree will take live questions on Twitter from 8-10 p.m. @DesHartsock.

ABC Mistresses – Premieres June 3 at 10 p.m.

I don’t know too much about this one except that Alyssa Milano is in it and I heart her. I’m interested to see how make the characters likeable even though they’re mistresses. It should be a good soap to watch and I hope everyone will have fantastic clothes!

One of my favorite blogs, Possessionista, has already posted a fashion preview here.

USA Graceland – Premieres June 6 at 10 p.m.

Graceland follows a group of undercover FBI agents as live together in a beachfront house. It’s from the creator of White Collar, Jeff Eastin, which is another great show. I’m mostly just watching this one for the eye candy…Daniel Sunjata…yum!

TNT Falling Skies – Season 3 premieres June 9 at 10 p.m.

My husband and I have watched Falling Skies together since it premiered. It’s an action-packed sci-fi action drama starring Noah Wyle. We last left the 2nd Mass with Tom taking on the role of U.S. President and Anne finding out she was pregnant.

USA Necessary Roughness – Season 3 premieres June 12 at 10 p.m.

This show has really started to heat up! We last left Dr. Dani revealing all of her feelings to Matt, but it looks like Matt’s new girlfriend is pregnant. Rex came out of the closet and Nico might be gone for good. John Stamos is joining the cast so it could mean a third love interest for Dani!

HBO True Blood – Season 6 premieres June 16 at 9 p.m.

True Blood is back! Last season left off with Bill becoming possessed by Lilith, the first vampire, and ended in a cliffhanger. Will Bill kill Sookie and Eric? Who will Sookie end up with? Is Bill gone forever?

Lifetime Devious Maids – Premieres June 23 at 10 p.m.

Created by Marc Cherry and produced by Eva Longoria this show is gunning to be the next Desperate Housewives. The show follows five maids for the rich and famous who use their position to achieve their own dreams. The preview teases lots of different plot twists and if it’s anything like the first season of Desperate Housewives we should be in for a good show.

CBS Under the Dome – Premieres June 24 at 10 p.m.

From auther Stephen King, Under the Dome should be a great sci-fi survival show, after watching the preview it sort of reminds me of Lost. I anticipate lots of fun twists and turns along the way. I also like Rachelle LeFevre and thought she was great in Twilight and Off the Map. I think this will be a show that both my husband and I can watch together.

USA Covert Affairs – Season 4 premieres July 16 at 9 p.m.

Season three ended with some big cliffhangers – Auggie and Annie finally kissed and Annie was presented with a mysterious file from Henry Wilcox. I really liked last season’s arc with Lena and Simon, hopefully we will see Annie get challenged again this year. I think Auggie is great but I would really like to see Annie end up with Eyal because their chemistry is hot!

USA Suits – Season 3 premieres July 16 at 10 p.m.

At the end of season two, Mike finally revealed to Rachel that he never went to Harvard. This didn’t seem to bother her because they hooked up in a very steamy sex scene. Harvey and Jessica are back in control of the firm, but moving forward with the merger. My husband and I love this show and we have a little crush on Gabriel Macht who plays Harvey. It will be interesting to see if he ever gets together with his secretary, Donna. One of my favorite parts of this show are the clothes. The women are impeccably dressed every week and I would kill for their wardrobe.

What shows will you be watching this summer? What are you most looking forward to? Let me know if there are other shows you think I should check out.
