Bachelor 22 – Week 1

Calling all Bachelor fans! Grab your wine and get ready for another season full of drama and roses! Let’s take a journey five years back to the past, when Emily Maynard’s season aired. My girlfriends and I watched this religiously and following along with Emily’s fashion was one of the reasons I started this blog and wanted to recap Bachelor fashion. I was stunned when she picked Jef over Arie as he was our favorite for her. We were shocked when he didn’t get the Bachelor nod and it went to Sean Lowe instead. But flash forward five years and Arie finally gets his chance and we will follow along and see if he ends up like Sean and Catherine or falls victim to the Bachelor curse like the rest of the couples.

Most of the women this season probably thought they were coming to meet Peter, but as Peter turned down the opportunity (don’t worry we will see him again in the Winter Games show) they will instead get to know Arie.

First up is Chelsea, the token single mom who is looking to find love again. She wore a cute gray off-the-shoulder ruffle top in her intro and I found this Ruffled Off-The-Shoulder Blouse from Neiman Marcus ($69) to recreate her look:

Seeing Kendall and all her dead animals reminds me of Kirk from Ali’s season, wasn’t his dad a taxidermist – is he still single because these two might be a match! Her necklace also reminded me of the Leona from Robyn Rhodes ($99):

Marikh seems to have an eclectic background as a restaurant owner who has also dabbled in social media marketing, a short animated documentary film, pageants and as a model. I liked her lantern sleeve dress and found this similar Ann Taylor Lantern Sleeve Flare Dress ($79.88):

Now that we’ve met a few of the ladies, on to our favorite looks from the limo entrances. First up is Chelsea, who wore iEENA for Mac Duggal style 25403i ($338):

Kendall shows up nervous wearing a slinky pink plunging, high-slit very grecian-esque dress. It might be this SHEIN Plunging Surplice Front Crisscross High Slit Cami Dress ($24):

I LOVED that Sienne brought Arie elephant cufflinks – that gets high marks in my book. Sienne wore the Yani Gown from NBD ($238) and mentioned on her Instagram that she had two necklaces that were both from Gorjana. I’m guessing one was the Chloe Mini Necklace ($55):

Tia wore a stunning green color and this Beaded Halter Neck Gown from MacDuggal ($338) is a dead ringer for her dress:

Bibiana is up next with another green dress. I loved the color on her. I found two similar dresses in this AMUR Sally Gown ($548) or this La Femme Strappy Ruched Bodice Gown ($298):

Jenny wore the hot pink Millbury Gown from Likely ($296.40) which you can also rent for $70 here. This Aidan Aidan Plunging Cutout Gown ($245) is similar and has more size options:

Jacqueline wore The Reformation Sophia Gown ($428) which only has a multicolor version available. I found this similar Dress the Population Iris Dress ($288):

Krystal wore the Jovani Open-Back Prom Dress with Ruffled Bustle and Train ($378) which was just stunning. I loved the business in front, party in the back style of this dress. This dress from JJ’s House is an exact replica and is only $96.99 if you want the look for less:

Jenna Cooper’s bright blue cutout dress might be my favorite. I just love that color! I found this similar Jill Stuart Cutout Crepe Gown ($298) to recreate her look:

Jessica wore this Nicholas Georgette Wrap Dress ($417). I found this similar Aiden Aiden Ruffle Trim Gown ($171.50):

Marikh wore the Josette by Abyss by Abby lace one sleeve dress ($192). This Cut Out Lace Long Dress ($44.99) or this XSCAPE One-Shoulder Lace Gown ($249) are similar:

Becca wore a sold out Vici Total Eclipse Lace Applique Maxi Dress. I found a number of similar dresses and figured I would share them all. First is the Lace Bodice Gown from Tadashi Shoji ($428), the second is the Lace & Jersey Gown from Morgan & Co. ($90), the third is the Tadashi Shoji Illusion Lace-Bodice Gown ($408) and the fourth is the Embellished Gown from Morgan & Co. ($108):

Lauren S. wore the sold out Reformation Rosella dress. This Frankie Velvet Cut Out Bow Midi Dress ($16) is similar:

Lauren J. wore the Solace London Piper Gown (for rent $75) and Jennifer Miller Faux Emerald Teardrop Earrings ($120). I thought this Halston Heritage Tie-Back Cut Out Gown ($375) was similar:

Ashley wore the Vegas Midi Dress from Nookie ($299). This ASTR Francesca Dress ($116) is similar:

Brittany T. wore the Hello Molly Golden Child Midi Dress ($66). It’s very va va voom and reminds me of Dolce & Gabbana. This Extraordinary Love Lace Midi Dress ($64) can get you the look if you still want the dress in black.

Lauren B. and Ali wore the same Sherri Hill Sequin Silver Prom Dress ($698). Let’s not mention Ali’s horrible pit stop joke – he should have kicked her out right there.

Annaliese went full kissing bandit in a ABS Allen Schwartz Women’s Plunging Neckline Gown With Shoulder Cut Out ($332.75):

Maquel had a fantastic entrance and looked beautiful. She wore a Sherri Hill Prom Dress ($468). This Halter Overlay Evening Dress by Cinderella Divine ($99) is similar:

And there you have it – these are my top picks from night one! I can’t wait to see what happens next this season, it looks like we are shaping up for a lot of drama.
