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?

Bachelor 21 – Week 5

We pick up right where we left off, with Corrine vs. Taylor. Nick kept both of them through the rose ceremony so we could get a dramatic two-on-one date this week.

Sarah wore Kendra Scott’s Danielle earrings ($75). They are my fav, but they didn’t save her from going home. Astrid also got the boot.

Nick whisks the rest of the women off to New Orleans for the next step in their journey. I am a huge fan of Jaimi’s “Champagne Campaign” shirt and had been eyeing it long before this episode. This version is from Private Party ($52):

Rachel gets the one-one-one date and bonds with Nick. Love Rachel, but hated her outfit on this date. These two could not have been cuter together – it is rare to see a contestant that is so confident and sure of herself. Rachel received the rose and is safe.

We can’t say as much for Corinne and Taylor, who received the dreaded two-on-one date. But first, Nick takes the girls to a plantation and then the producers tried a little too hard to make it “haunted.” Insert eye roll here. Danielle M. received the group date rose.

Next up, the two-on-one where Corinne feeds Taylor to an alligator…okay maybe not, but it got ugly. Taylor can’t accept Nick’s rejection and pops up again during his dinner date with Corinne. We will have to wait and see what happens next week!

Are you Team Taylor or Team Corinne this week?

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!
