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.

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)

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?!

Wine of the Week: The Bachelor Wines

I’ve mentioned my Bachelor wine nights a number of different times here on the blog. My friend and I watch the Bachelor/Bachelorette every Monday night with wine. I’ve always thought that the Bachelor franchise was missing out by not selling branded wine. Well ask and you shall receive, because now we have The Bachelor Wines.

Before Nick’s season started, I scooped up the Collector’s Pack for $47.88 and would drink them as appropriate during each date. I like that you can buy these in a pack or one-on-one. I will definitely need some replacements before Rachel’s season starts. I will say that the Chardonnay really surprised me. I am not a huge fan of the buttery flavors of a normal Chardonnay, but these were really understated and I actually really liked it. Here is the breakdown on each wine:

One-on-One Chardonnay

Will you be the chosen one? After reading the wine details, I discovered that the juice was fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks to harness the inherently bright fruit flavor and character of Chardonnay. This is why it didn’t have a strong buttery flavor. Usually they use oak barrels for that which explains why I loved this version. Described as sunshine in a bottle, you’ll taste ripe apple flavors with notes of lemon, pear and a hint of cream.

 

The Fantasy Suite Cabernet Sauvignon

The grapes from this wine were crushed and cold soaked for several days to harness color and flavor intensity resulting in a beautiful, deep ruby red color. It has aromas of black cherry, blueberry and dark plum with hints of savory dried herbs. It is easy to drink due to flavors of blackberry and plum.

 

The Final Rose

The grapes from this one come from Lodi, one of California’s oldest premium winegrowing regions. The skins remained in contact with the juice just long enough to leave a soft shade of blush pink. It has aromas of strawberries, red cherries, and rose petals. Flavors include raspberries, strawberry jam, and a hint of spice.

All of these wines are great and perfect for a Bachelor/Bachelorette viewing party, I used my Coravin so I could enjoy the wine throughout the whole season. I will say that they need to add more options to this and I have some suggestions:

  • The Right Reasons Riesling
  • Paradise Pinot Noir
  • Group Date Gewürztraminer
  • Neil Lane Sparkling Wine
  • Two-on-One Tempranillo
  • Cocktail Party Chianti
  • Villian Viognier

Let me know if you think of any other ideas. At the very list we definitely need a sparkling wine to add to this collection. Maybe one day each lead will get their own special wine, how fun would that be?

Bachelorette 10 – The Men Tell All

It’s time for The Men Tell All…aka the easiest post to write because Andi only wears one outfit!

The show kicks off with a visit from Ashley and J.P. Rosenbaum. Ashley is very pregnant and they do an on-air ultrasound where it is revealed that they are having a boy! I just love them, I was a huge fan of J.P. on that season and am excited that #TeamCupcake is doing so well.

ashley jp

After a LOT of drama with the men, we move on to Marcus and Chris. Marcus is getting set up here for his big stint on Bachelor in Paradise and Chris is being primed as the next Bachelor. The ladies seem to love him and I can see why. The whole thing with Chris and the random audience girl was dumb. Since he’s going to be the Bachelor he can’t really date right now. Maybe that girl will end up as one of his contestants or something. I’m not really sure where they were going with that.

As Andi comes out you get a great look at her Sequin Vine Cocktail Dresses by Mac Duggal ($458). I thought this JS Collection Sequin Dress ($248) was a great look for less:

men tell all sequin dress

She wears lovely Badgley Mischka Pumps – The Kat High Heel, you can get it here, here or here from $150-179. These Guess Bittan 3 Pumps (484.99) are a similar look for less:

badgley mischka

Andi handled all of the men’s questions with grace and you can tell that she really respected everyone and tried to send them home as soon as she knew that there wasn’t a future. In this clip you can see her fabulous Alexis Bittar Vine Ring ($295):

alexis bittar ring

Bachelorette 10 – Week 9 Recap

We’ve finally made it to the fantasy suite! This is the week of overnight dates and Andi has three great guys to choose from. The dates are set in the Dominican Republic, the perfect place to fall in love.

As Andi arrives at the hotel, she wore the Carrie Cami from JCrew ($69.99):

JCrew

As Andi gives the overview of her guys, she walks the beach and wears a Show Me Your Mumu Shook Tunic in Sugar Splash (sold out). I found this similar Tie Dye Tunic from Venus ($26):

tunic

Nick gets the first overnight date with Andi and she seems giddy about getting to see him again. For this beach date she wore a Turquoise Python T-Rex Dress from Show Me Your Mumu ($172).  This Apt. 9 Snakeskin Chiffon Halter Maxi Dress ($18) is similar:

snakeskin mumu

She accessorized this look with the Ariel Snake Charm Necklace ($330), I found a $2.95 look for less at Lace Fancy on Etsy:

snake charm necklace

And with the Susanne Elizabeth Square Ring ($24) and these Alden Rae Wrap Bracelets ($49):

alden rae

During the evening portion of the date, Nick writes a ridiculous fairy tale for Andi and read it to her why wearing the most unmanly outfit of the show. I liked Nick from the beginning, but this didn’t do him any favors. Andi wore a Robyn Rhodes Alice Cuff ($80):

cuff

She wore this Amanda Uprichard Maxi Dress ($200.20). This Vince Camuto Chiffon-Overlay Slit Maxi Dress ($77.40) is a great look for less:

blue maxi

Andi seemed thrilled with Nick and he seems like the front runner at this point.

Next up is Josh – Andi and Josh crash a children’s baseball game and join in…that wasn’t awkward. Andi wore a Free People Shellshock Tank ($44.99), L’Agence Track Shorts ($78) and Alden Rae Grey Wrap Bracelet ($59 CAD). I wasn’t in love with this look, so I thought if I would recreate it with stuff I would wear. I found this Calvin Klein Layered Tank ($29.99) and JCrew Chino Shorts ($39.50):

free people

After watching their relationship unfold, I think Josh is the one that Andi has to chase a little bit. Throughout the season they had a few dramatic moments and sometimes I think a girl needs “the stomach flip” to know that she is really smitten with someone. During the evening portion of the date Andi wore an Asymmetrical One Shoulder Maxi Dress by Michelle Mason ($209). I love this ASOS One Shoulder Drape Maxi Dress ($87.06) and think it would be perfect for dinner in a romantic location:

asymmetrical dress

She accessorized with the Danielle earrings by KVBijou ($92):

kvbijou

Last but not least, Andi has her date with Chris where they go horseback riding and Andi could not have looked more uncomfortable. I feel like Andi thinks Chris is great on paper, but she doesn’t really feel that connection. It seems like she has been trying to make it happen, but it’s not quite there yet.

Andi wore a Theodora & Callum Multi Inca Scarf Top (sold out) on her day date with Chris. Theodora & Callum has similar tops and I thought this Blue Multi Panama Scarf Top ($119) is a great alternative:

scarf top

She accessorized with a Mini Gold Arrowhead Necklace from Gold & Gray ($99):

cache_500_500_0_100_100_arrowhead-600x450

For the evening portion of the date, Andi decides to send Chris home before giving him a chance in the fantasy suite. She wore Parker’s Adelaide Combo Maxi Dress ($297). I thought this Ella Ribbon Trim Dress by Ella Moss ($166) was similar:

maxi

She accessorized this look with Brooklyn Designs’ Katia Earrings ($65) and Maya Brenner’s Day to Night Necklace with Black Diamonds ($295):

maya brenner

Even though she already sent Chris home, they decided to go ahead with the rose ceremony. Andi wore a Halston Heritage Halter Neck Asymmetrical Gown ($495) and Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Liquid Crystal Rose Goldtone Hoop Earrings ($150). You can rent this dress here at Rent the Runway for $100. This Love Sam High Low Dress ($95.70) gives you the halter and the asymmetrical cut for less:

halston heritage

In the end she gave her roses to Nick and Josh and they accepted…final rose ceremony here we come!

In the deleted scenes this week, Josh and Andi try a love potion that they purchased from a street vendor:

In this scene, Andi watches the video messages from Josh and Nick following their overnight dates:

Bachelorette 10 – Week 8 Recap

We’ve finally made it to hometown dates and our final four men, Nick, Marcus, Josh and Chris. Meeting the parents is a time honored ritual and a good opportunity to weed out the crazies before marriage.

Our first hometown date is with Nick in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. In the opening scene, Andi wears a Datyah Amazing Wool & Cashmere-Blend Biker-Style Coat (sold-out) and her Minnie Rose Cotton Fringe Shawl ($51.35). This Coat with Back Pocket by Zara ($149) is similar:

theory

Under all of her layers, she wears a V-Neck Blouse from H&M (sold-out). I found a similar flutter sleeve blouse in peach from BlueFly ($35):

flutter blouse

Andi gets to meet Nick’s huge family and can most impressively remember all of their names. She did pass the bar lest we forget. Andi is wearing an Aqua Classic Denim Jacket ($78) and Diamond Arc Necklace by Ariel Gordon Jewelry ($525):

aqua denim jacket

You can also get a good look at her Robyn Rhodes Andi Ring ($75) here:

robyn rhodes andi

Next up is our Iowa date with farmer Chris. He is yum! Andi and Chris have a great ole’ day on the farm. Her farm attire consists of of a Vince Raglan Suspension Cardigan ($172.50), Vince Silk Popover Top ($285) and the Diamond Arc Necklace by Ariel Gordon Jewelry ($525). This Theodora Cardigan by Velvet ($75.60), Joie Chally Top ($39.99) and Z Designs Arc Necklace ($18) are similar:

iowa date

As Andi gets her smooch on with Chris, you can get a good look at her Laurel Ruby Studs from Brooklyn Designs ($79):

In our third hometown date, Andi meets Josh in Tampa. They went to play baseball and Andi wears a Vince Boatneck Tee ($125), Pull & Bear Basic Colored Shorts (sold-out) and Converse Chuck Taylor Sneakers ($44.95). This Ann Taylor Satin Trim Boatneck Tee ($19.88) and JCP Twill Shorts ($14.99) are similar:

baseball date

During dinner with the parents, Andi accessorized with Brooklyn Designs’ Mika Gold Leaf Earrings ($78) and Abbey Double Strand Necklace ($98):

She wasn’t too thrilled with all of the football talk, but any good wife knows that you can’t get between a man and his football. She is wearing the JCrew Carrie Cami ($69.99). This Crisscross Back Cami from Forever 21 ($15.80) is similar:

camisoleIt was interesting to see the family’s take on this relationship. Josh’s sister pretty much forshadowed that they may fight about how involved he is in his brother’s career in the future. She is also wearing the See Song Ocean Blue Fishtail Bracelet ($40):

see song

Our final hometown date is with Marcus in Dallas. I loved Andi’s look for this date – it is probably more along the lines of something I would wear (I can’t resist a black dress). She accessorizes with the Short Leaf Necklace from Melinda Maria ($148) and the Andi Necklace from Brooklyn Designs ($115):

andi necklace

As they enter the bar, you get a good glimpse of her Isola Orenda Wedges ($121.95). To recreate this look, I selected this Jessica Simpson Sleeveless Sheath Dress ($128) and these Tenley Wedges by Dolce Vita ($79):

marcus hometown

Andi also wears Robyn Rhodes’ Sappho Ring ($99):

sappho

Before the rose ceremony, everyone is gathered at Chris Harrison’s house so the producers can tell them about the passing of Eric Hill. This is a hard scene to watch, a few other bloggers have mentioned that it is sort of like watching a private moment and I have to agree with them.

Andi has a hard time making it through the rose ceremony this week, but does eventually decide to let Marcus go. This isn’t surprising as she has mentioned a number of times that she doesn’t know if her feelings can catch up to his. She wore a fitted green gown. I thought this Strapless Taffeta Evening Gown from Dressale ($122.99) was a good match and you can order it in green:

gown

Next week, we have the Fantasy Suite Dates in the Dominican Republic and things will really start to heat up. Who will stay and who will go?

In the deleted scenes this week, Josh gives Andi a special surprise:

On her hometown date with Chris, they plant a rose bush in this deleted scene:

When meeting Josh’s family, Andi can’t leave until she does the shake face:

Bachelorette 10 – Week 7 Recap

The boys are in Brussels this week and Andi is feeling the pressure as this is the last week before hometowns. I could have helped her decide by sending everyone home that was wearing a scarf. What is up with these boys and their scarves – it is not attractive at all.

Andi on the other hand wore a beautiful Leather Insert Wool-Blend Cape by Sandro (sold-out). This Vince Camuto Single Button Cape Coat ($199) is similar: cape Chris Harrison sits down with the guys and lets them know that there aren’t any roses on the individual dates, but there is a rose up for grabs during the group date. He leaves the first date card for Marcus and it says “Let’s get a taste for Brussels.”

For their one-on-one date, Andi and Marcus get to explore Brussels. Andi is rocking her white pants again. She definitely knows how to work the white pants this season. She wears an Open Sleeve Poncho by Maison Martin Margiela. This Gray Cotton sweater ($79.99) from Etsy is similar: gray sweater

She also wore the Denae ring from KVBijou ($95):

denae

During the evening portion of their date, Andi needs to decide whether or not to meet Marcus’ family. He really opens up to her and shares some personal stories about his upbringing. Andi wore a Dion Lee Halter Dress. This Tamzen Halter Neck Wrap Over Bodycon Dress ($30) is similar without the colorblocking:

keyhole dress

The next date card arrives for Josh and reads “Let’s Ghent it On.” He didn’t expect that, but Andi needed more time with Josh to figure out what he was feeling. Once Marcus comes back from his one-on-one date, Nick sneaks up to spend some additional time with her. This was totally contrived by the producers, but it worked for Nick since he wasn’t going to get a one-on-one date this week. Andi seemed to love it though. She loves making out with Nick.

Josh and Andi explore the town of Ghent for their one-on-one date. Andi is rocking her JBrand 811 Mid Rise Skinny Jeans ($172), Joie Ferrell Jacket ($131.20), Minnie Rose Women’s Cotton Fringe Shawl ($51.35) and a white lace top. I previously found these 1969 mid-rise real straight skimmer jeans ($27.99) from Gap to match her white jeans. I also found this Club Monaco Vienna Bomber Jacket ($174.30) and this Short Sleeve Lace Tee ($45) to recreate the look:

minnie rose

During the evening portion of her date with Josh, Andi needed to figure out if Josh was ready to get married. Andi wore these beautiful Robyn Rhodes Genevieve Earrings ($135):

genevieve earrings

The last date card comes for Nick, Dylan, Brian and Chris and reads “True love is sacred.”

Back on Andi and Josh’s date, Andi is starting to come around to Josh. She really likes him, but she wants him to tell her that he loves her. He finally says the words and they go to a private concert by American Young. Andi is so smitten with Josh, he will be pretty hard for anyone else to beat for Andi’s heart. She was more excited to hear that he was falling in love than for anyone else on this season. I tried to get a good clip of her full outfit. She wore a Helmut Lang Alpaca-blend sweater (sold-out) and Alegra Leather Pants from Club Monaco ($695). To recreate this look, I chose this Kimono Sleeve Alpaca Sweater ($74.50) and these Blank NYC Vegan Leather Spray On Skinny in Grey Day ($98):

alpaca

You can get a glimpse of Andi’s Ruby Teardrop Ring from KV Bijou ($169):

ruby rose

On the group date, the boys get to explore an old castle, then they have to pedal a rail bike (which looked like hard work). The weird part of this date was when they went to a monastery where they aren’t allowed to kiss. Andi had some sexy pottery time with Chris, but she ultimately gave Nick the date securing his place at hometowns and giving him more one-on-one time with Andi. On this date, she wore Splendid Roland Suede Ankle Booties ($187.95) and Joie So Real Skinny Cargo Pants ($198). These Ivanka Trump Ramada Booties ($69.99) and Lucky Brand Charlie Super Skinny Cargo ($39.99) are similar:

cargo pants

During her one-on-one time with Andi, she wore a Rebecca Taylor All-Over Sequin Jacket (sold-out).  This Mao Collar Sequin Jacket ($59.99) is similar:

sequin jacket

Afterwards, the crap hits the fan when all of the guys gang up on Nick – drama!!

At the cocktail party, Nick steals Andi away making him even more hated by the guys. She wears a dramatic long-sleeved sequin dress with a slit to show off her gams. I found a similar sequin dress from KMDresses ($139.99):

sequin dress

Chris waits until the last minute and pulls Andi aside for one last kiss to make sure to lock his place down for hometowns.

At the rose ceremony, Andi sends Dylan and Chris home, which leaves Marcus, Chris, Nick and Josh to travel to their hometowns next week.

There is only one deleted scene this week – some goofy dancing with Chris, Marcus and Dylan:

Bachelorette 10 – Week 6 Recap

This week, Andi and the boys travel to Venice, Italy! As she arrives via gondola, Andi wears the Katia Earrings from Brooklyn Designs ($65):

katia

In this ITM (in-the-moment), she is wearing Sacred Jewels Aqua Chalcedony & Garnet Vision Necklace ($199):

sacred necklace

As she roams the city before meeting up with the guys, she wears the Club Monaco Isabella Trench ($329). This Marc New York by Andrew Marc Rue Coat ($84.99) is a great look for less:

olive trench

She is also wearing the Bria Earrings from Brooklyn Designs ($49):

As soon as Andi meets up with the guys, she informs them that the first one-on-one date starts immediately and she chooses Nick. This causes drama because Cody hasn’t had any one-on-one dates yet. Nick and Andi get to explore the city on their date.

In the meantime, the group date card comes for Josh, Brian, Dylan, Marcus, JJ and Chris which means Cody will get the final one-on-one date. It says “I’m looking for love.”

For the evening portion of the date, Andi meets Nick for a masquerade ball for the two of them. Nick is pretty darn honest here and I think the most realistic of the group on what this is. #Hesnotheretomakefriends

Andi wore the Painted Delight Mermaid Evening Gown by Theia ($1295). I thought this Trumpet/Mermaid Sweetheart Sweep Train Taffeta Evening Dress With Lace ($213.99) from Dress First had a similar look:

After she gives Nick the rose, they go outside and dance to a private serenade.

Next up, on the group date, Andi takes the guys out on the town and then to a castle where she has them all take a lie detector test. Josh was not happy about this at all.

She wore an Hermes scarf (I couldn’t find the exact one) and the Skyline Ankle Skinny Jeans from Paige Denim ($179). I loved this outfit and to recreate it I chose a Sandra Ingrish Split Back Roll Sleeve Shirt ($68), 1969 mid-rise real straight skimmer jeans ($27.99) from Gap and this BCBGMAXAZRIA Case for Lace loop Scarf ($46.99):

She also wore her Costello ring from Brooklyn Designs ($65) again:

The bracelet she wears is the Stella & Dot Jackie Link Bracelet ($69):

Andi decides to rip up the lie detector results, which made Josh very happy. They proceed to the evening portion of the date. Andi wore an Herve Leger little black dress, I think it is this V-Neck Bandage Dress ($880). This Kardashian Kollection Women’s Bandage Mesh Cutout Dress ($34) is a great look for less:

Chris admits that he is the secret admirer and secures himself the rose for the evening. He also redeemed her night after a weird conversation with Josh.

For her one-on-one date with Cody, Andi wore a sold-out Vanessa Bruno Athe Aimy Crepe Skirt. I thought this Club Monaco Summer Skort ($149.50) was a great match:

They went to Verona and they got to answer love letters to Juliet, which was sort of cool. We get to see a different side of Cody and he was pretty excited about the date.

This activity inspired Cody to write his own letter to Andi. Unfortunately, she didn’t feel the same way and decided to send him home. Andi wore some unfortunate True Religion tan leather pants, which I’m not going to feature because it wasn’t a good look. Don’t worry Cody, you will find love on Bachelor in Paradise…

At the cocktail party, Nick made some enemies by stealing Andi away at the beginning even though he had a rose. Andi didn’t care; she loved it! She wore a sharp Blue Sequin Dress from Pamela Dennis. I thought this Lauren by Ralph Lauren Sleeveless Sequin Evening Gown ($101.99) provided a similar look:

At the rose ceremony, Andi had to let JJ go, which wasn’t really a surprise as there wasn’t really a romantic relationship at this point.

Next week the boys and Andi are heading to Brussels!

What did you think about this week of dates?

For our deleted scenes this week, Cody receives his first one-on-one date card:

Andi and Nick feed the pigeons in Venice and they decide to land on Nick…yuck:

In this clip, JJ and Andi talk about whether or not he is good in bed…awkward!
