Bachelor 20 – After the Final Rose

I figured I would write a separate post to talk about After the Final Rose and all of Lauren’s looks from Jimmy Kimmel, Good Morning America and Live with Kelly and Michael.

JoJo comes out first looking like the epitome of what you want to look like when you see your ex for the first time. She wore the T by Alexander Wang Cutout Stretch Knit Bandeau Dress ($450). Nordstrom also has more sizes available in Navy. I found a few similar looks in this Charlotte Russe Cut-Out BodyCon Dress ($29.99) and this Black Long Sleeve Cut-out Asymmetric Dress ($20):

Alexander Wang

After Ben and JoJo got to catch up, Chris Harrison announced her as the next Bachelorette! Thank goodness! I can’t wait to see more of her style next season!

Finally Lauren and Ben were reunited in public to live happily ever after. While they did not get married on TV, they seem to be doing well. I like that they both had their families present. I don’t think previous couples did, but they may have and just not showed them on TV. Lauren looked like the perfect bride in Jonathan Simkhai’s
Tower Lace Dress ($1,195). This ASTR Samantha Floral Lace Dress ($109) is similar:

Jonathan Simkhai

Once they finished taping After the Final Rose, Ben and Lauren stayed in LA to do Jimmy Kimmel. You can check out the clip below:

Lauren wore the Lovers + Friends Heart You Dress ($148). You can also rent it for $50 here:

Lovers and Friends

What you don’t realize is that immediately following Jimmy Kimmel, Lauren and Ben had to fly to New York to get ready for Good Morning America.

Lauren wore the Sunset Dress from The JetSet Diaries which you can rent for $60. This Stylestalker Lani Lace Mini Dress ($179) is similar:

JetSet Diaries

After a quick wardrobe change, Lauren and Ben were ready for Live with Kelly & Michael.

Lauren wore the sold-out Dixie Cutout Mini Dress from Nightcap. You can rent it for $60 here. This J.O.A.
Lace Dress ($88) is similar:

Nightcap Lace Dress

Later that week, Ben and Lauren made their way to the Today Show.

Lauren wore the Dixie Lace Catsuit from Nightcap Clothing ($396). You can also rent it here for $75. It looks like they modified this a bit for Lauren to be two pieces. This Adriana Lace Jumpsuit ($82.60) is a similar look for less:

Nightcap Jumpsuit

And there you have it, hopefully these two crazy kids live happily ever after. Were you happy with Ben’s choice? What about JoJo as the next Bachelorette?

Bachelor 20 – Finale

Here we go people, the Bachelor 20 Finale! I think this might be the first time I’ve actually made it to the end with my fashion recaps before a new season started, so I’m pretty pleased with myself!

Up first are both Lauren and JoJo lamenting about how they feel much more confident now that Ben has professed his love…but wait a minute, both of them wonder if he has also said the same thing to the other. JoJo’s white off-the-shoulder top is on point. I found this similar Velvet by Graham & Spencer Off-the-Shoulder Lace Top ($138) to recreate her look:


To meet the parents JoJo wore the BB Dakota Amina Romper ($60.99). This Jack by BB Dakota Aerona Floral Haze Printed Crinkle Chiffon Romper ($62) is similar with more sizes:

BB Dakota

On Ben and Lauren’s last date, Lauren wore Victoria’s Secret Surf Teeny Triangle Top ($19.99) and The Surf Bikini Bottom ($24):


During JoJo’s last date, Ben reveals that he is confused much to JoJo’s chagrin. JoJo wore the Vitamin A Neutra Bralette Limelight ($129.95AUD):

Vitamin A Nuetra

Unfortunately, poor JoJo got her heart broken by Ben. She still looked unbelievable in the Mac Duggal Cassandra Stone – Style 4365A ($498):


Lauren and Ben lived happily ever after…or at least for the next six months. Only time will tell. I loved watching their proposal. They might be one of my favorite couples in a while. I hope they beat the odds. Lauren looked beautiful in my favorite color. She wore Badgley Mischka’s Odessa Halter Gown ($462), you can also rent it at Rent the Runway for $100:

Badgley Mischka

What did you think about this season of The Bachelor? How long do you think Ben and Lauren will last? Or do you think they will make it to the altar?

Bachelor 20 – Women Tell All Recap

Who’s ready for some catfights?! The Women Tell All and After the Final Rose are my favorite fashion episodes because it serves as a second chance for all the women. After watching themselves on TV for 11 weeks, all the women come back fully coiffed and smokin hot to confront their “ex.”

Ben and Chris Harrison kick off this week with visits to some Bachelor viewing parties. I don’t understand Bachelor fantasy leagues. I am a spoiler reader and they are so readily available it is almost silly to pretend like you don’t cheat…especially if money is involved.

Let’s get down to fashion business:

Leah wore the Lacie Dress from Ritual Boutique ($72):

Lacie Dress

Becca wore the Parker Kimono Romper ($167.20). You can get it here in silver for $418. Parker has this similar Vicky Embellished Romper for $297:


Haley wore the Oh My Love Great Pretender Velvet Cutout Dress from Nasty Gal ($57.40) and Kendra Scott’s Jordan Open Pinch Ring ($75). They have some additional colors and sizes in blue and black.

Nasty Gal

Emily wore a Sherri Hill Cap Sleeve Short Black Bandage Dress ($480), Stella & Dot Bianca Earrings ($39), and the Kendra Scott Signature Naomi 3 Stone Double Ring in Black Drusy & Gunmetal ($130):

Sherri Hill

Olivia wore the Zimmermann Crepe Harness Jumpsuit ($420) with the Alexis Bittar Miss Havisham Pendant Necklace ($59.99). This Ralph Lauren Sable Wide-Leg Jumpsuit ($298) is a similar look for less:

Zimmerman jumpsuit

Lauren H. wore the Lacey Dress ($59):

Jennifer wore the Keziah Dress from the Misha Collection ($220) and the Scorpio Drop Earrings from BaubleBar ($32). This Bardot Halter Mesh Dress ($90) is similar:


Amanda wore a For Love & Lemons Gianna Crop Top ($171) and Gianna Mini Skirt ($167):

For Love and Lemons Gianna

I can definitely say that this was the most uncomfortable Women Tell All ever. I was uncomfortable watching it. I never understand why people get super crazy about women treating this like a competition. As they say “All’s fair in love and war.”

Bachelor 20 – Week 9 Recap

It’s Week 9…bring on the fantasy suites!

Since things are heating up, we kick off the week with some long stares and statements about how Jamaica is a beautiful place to fall in love. Lauren and JoJo are in sync in their Victoria’s Secret Robes. Lauren’s is the Satin Kimono in Blue Water ($49.50):

Kimono Wrap

JoJo’s Satin Kimono ($59.50) is a little different with lace cut outs on the shoulders.

Satin Kimono

Caila was up first and the date got off to a bumpy start. She also wore a bathing suit crop top as and outfit…although if I had her abs, I would wear that every day. Unfortunately, I can only help you with the swimsuit, not the abs. Caila wore the Billabong Gypsy Dreamin’ Crop Halter Bikini Top ($54.95) with a Madewell Mini Geochain Necklace ($30):


Lauren’s date is up next and if it’s possible she may have worn even less than Caila. I absolutely could not pull off those shorts so I won’t even try. They did have the cutest date helping to send baby turtles into the wild. Before they headed off to the fantasy suite, Lauren told Ben that she loved him and SURPRISE! he said it back! Let’s just wrap it up right there people…

Last but not least, JoJo looked smokin’ hot in her Indah Sisi Bikini Top. I was floored when Ben told JoJo that he also loved her (WHAT?)!!! Her specific color is no longer available, but you can get it here in black for $55:


I am stunned that Ben just went out there and said the “L” word to two women. Somebody is truly going to get hurt, which is sad. After watching this episode, it’s obvious who that will be. I loved JoJo’s evening maxi dress, the Ecote Deluxe Daisy Maxi Dress from Urban Outfitters. It’s in pounds so about $100 US. This BB Dakota Larissa Black and White Floral Print Maxi Dress ($99) is somewhat similar:

Urban Outfitters Maxi

Once in the fantasy suite, JoJo pulls out another rockin’ bikini look with with Vitamin A Swimwear Kylie Triangle Top ($59.99):

Vitamin A Swimwear

Caila stops to surprise Ben and he ends up setting her home. Caila seems surprised, but I think she is better off in the end.  She wore the same Billabong Gypsy Dreamin’ Crop Halter Bikini Top ($54.95) which is reversible and a sold out Bay View Skirt from Athleta. They also make a similar Pura Vida Midi Skirt ($54):


At the least dramatic rose ceremony, both women get roses and we are left to wonder how Ben can actually be in love with two women. JoJo is looking amazing in her Bebe Deep V Midi Dress ($129)! Since her pattern is no longer available I found this additional ASOS Deep Plunge Rose Midi Scuba Body-Conscious Dress ($68) that has the same floral feel:

Lauren arrives and also surprises Chris Harrison by telling him that Ben is in love with her too! I’m not sure if he knew that before the girls showed up, but the audience was definitely surprised. Lauren wore the High Tide Maxi from Blue Life ($154):

High Tide Maxi

There you have it…our final two ladies!

What did you think about Week 9? Next week will be fashion packed with the Women Tell All!

Bachelor 20 – Week 8 Recap

We have arrived at hometown dates this week and get to see our women in their natural habitats (ha!). First up is Amanda in Orange County, California, who decides to introduce Ben to her children. She wore a sold out Vallarta Shoulder Bell Sleeve Top from Swell. This shirt drove me crazy because it was falling off of her the whole time. I would have had a wardrobe malfunction for sure. I found this Socialite Off-Shoulder Long Sleeve Woven Blouse ($24.97) which had some straps to help this stay up.

Next up is Lauren’s hometown date in Portland, Oregon and they have a fun date eating street food and going to a whiskey library (this is my kind of date!). Lauren wore a sold out Check Pocket Front Shirt and Quilted Leather Jacket both from Zara. Fun fact: Kate Middleton has also worn this shirt. I found a similar Tartan Plaid Shirt from Forever 21 ($17.90) and Dawn Levy 2 Women’s Quilted Leather Moto Jacket ($115.72) to recreate this look:


Lauren’s sister Mollie stole the show with her oversized cardigan from Target (sold out). Target makes a similar Mossimo version ($29.99) to get her look. Maybe we’ll see Mollie on a future season of the show…


Caila is third with a hometown in Hudson, Ohio where we discover that she is the heir to the Step2 throne. She and Ben build a child’s playhouse and re-enact An Officer and a Gentleman. Caila wore a High-Low Turtleneck ($29.95) from Anthropologie, a JCrew Excursion Quilted Down Vest ($99.99), and H&M Slim-Fit Pants ($19.99). Since most of these only have limited sizes and colors left, I recreated the look with an AQUA Cable High Low Sweater ($49.50), Tommy Hilfiger Quilted Vest ($99.99), and DKNY Jeans City Faux Leather Skinny Jean ($59.95):


JoJo is last in Dallas, Texas and she has a surprise waiting from her ex-boyfriend. This was silly and totally contrived by producers. It wasn’t even a storyline throughout the season and they barely spent five minutes on it which was just weird. JoJo looked fantastic in her Kristin Cavallari Laurel Peep Toe Booties ($149.95):

Kristin Cavallari

At the rose ceremony JoJo looked STUNNING. That dress was definitely worth a rose. It is sold out from La Femme, but I found a similar Rise Of Dawn Bodycon Dress from Forever 21 ($89). She wore Teardrop Earrings from Nadri ($44):

La Femme

Amanda wore a For Love & Lemons Lyla Cocktail Dress ($246):

For Love and Lemons Lyla

Unfortunately, Amanda was sent home this week, maybe we will see her again in Paradise…

Bachelor 20 – Week 7 Recap

Lauren wore a Babaton Beekman Sweater from Aritzia ($145):


As you may have noticed from my recent post, I love graphic tees and JoJo’s is no different. I loved her MinkPink “Don’t Quote Me” shirt ($32.90):


Lauren got the first one-on-one date this week and Ben took her to volunteer at the local youth center where he spent a lot of time. Lauren wore a sold out Majestic Waterfall Knit Cardigan. I thought this Bobeau Waterfall Fleece ($60) was similar:

Waterfall Cardigan

JoJo gets the next one-on-one date and Ben takes her to Chicago and they spend some time at Wrigley Field. At dinner JoJo wore a cozy sweater. This LAmade Women’s Oversized Cowl Neck Cable Sweater Top ($76.13) is similar:

Slouchy Sweater

Next up is a three-on-one with Amanda, Becca and Caila. Amanda got the rose from Ben and a hometown date guarantee. Amanda wore a Kendra Rayne Stone Tassel Pendant Necklace in Mother of Pearl ($80):

Kendra Scott Rayne Mother of Pearl

Emily had the final one-on-one with Ben. You couldn’t help but love her zest for life in this episode, its unfortunate that we just saw her personality start shining through on her last episode. Ben ultimately sends Emily home. It was obvious that she wasn’t on the same page as Ben.

At the rose ceremony Lauren wore a Jessica Simpson Zippered Boucle Wool Blend Coat ($159). This Via Spiga Women’s Wool Coat with Knit Collar ($59.04) is similar:

Jessica Simpson Wool Coat

Ben ended up letting Becca go home this week because their relationship wasn’t progressing as fast as the other ones.  Next up – hometown dates!

Bachelor 20 – Week 6 Recap

We pick up where we left off from last week with the Rose Ceremony. Olivia is saved for another week, but Jennifer is sent home. Ben then announces that they are traveling to the Bahamas.

This week there will be a one-on-one date, a group date, and a two-on-one date (yikes!). Becca reads the first date card announcing that Caila will get the one-on-one date. Becca wore the Show Me Your Mumu Rocky Romper ($146):

Show Me Your Mumu Rocky Romper

Emily and Olivia end up getting the dreaded two-on-one date and now we can clearly see that everything has been leading up to this moment. In her ITM, Emily wore a Hello Molly Adam and Eve Romper ($55):

Hello Molly

Aside from being annoying (because crying will absolutely get you a rose), Leah wore a cool looking crochet bathing suit on the group date. This Acacia Panama Top ($115) is similar.


Becca wore a Show Me Your Mumu Peta Tunic – Aztec ($124):

Bauble Bar

Leah knows her number is up this week and she decides to waste her time trying to damage Ben’s relationship with Lauren. Just a tip Leah, Ben was always going to pick Lauren over you. Lauren wore the sold out Saturday Night Romper from Lucy Paris and Steve Madden’s PLMBEACH Wedges ($99.95). ASTR’s Lace Trim Romper ($76) is similar:

Saturday Night Romper

JoJo looks great as always in a sold out Chellah Set from Sabo Skirt. This Grey Sleeveless Crochet Lace Maxi Dress from Romwe ($27.49) gives you a similar look in that great color:

Sabo Skirt

Leah’s plan backfired on her and Ben sent her home. Good riddance, she obviously couldn’t handle it. This leads us to our two-on-one date with Emily and Olivia. Emily wore the Bikini Lab Women’s Fringe Ferdinand Bralette ($29.95):

Fringe Top

The two-on-one date was brutal, with Olivia being sent home after she was so confident she was going to be the last one standing. All the girls were insecure leading up to the rose ceremony as it was unclear who Ben was going to send home this week.

JoJo wore the sold out Muse Maxi Dress from Sabo Skirt. This Nemidor Crochet Top Grey Maxi Long Lace Dress ($22.49) is similar:

Sabo Maxi

In the end, Ben sent home Lauren H. our Michigan girl. She was classy the whole time through, I hope we see her again soon!

Bachelor 20 – Week 5 Recap

It’s week five, and as Ben reminds us we are at the halfway point. Even without reading the spoilers we can definitely see Ben falling for a few of these ladies. Amanda gets the first one-on-one date in Mexico City. Ben wakes up the girls from a dead sleep and Amanda wakes up looking perfect, she obviously had a heads up to get ready in advance. My hair doesn’t look that good normally. Amanda wore a sold out Off-The-Shoulder Gaze Top. This H.I.P. Off The Shoulder Women’s Peasant Top ($19.99) is similar:

Gaze Top

On the evening portion of the date, Amanda got a rose from Ben and she wore the same for For Love & Lemons Noir Mini Dress ($224) that Leah wore at the rose ceremony last week.

This week ended on a cliffhanger, with Ben pulling Olivia aside to chat before the rose ceremony and we are left to wait until the following week to find out who goes home.

Jubilee was sent home during the group date, well to be fair she pretty much eliminated herself by pulling back from Ben.

In the deleted scenes this week, the ladies find out that they are headed to Mexico City:

In this scene, Ben and Amanda have a pinata party:

Urban Outfitters

Olivia was a disaster on the group date and instead of just owning her awkward performance, she fell apart. It was totally out of character for her and the reason it was such a topic this week. On the evening portion of the group date, she wore a cute romper, that she should have rocked…instead she just came off as insecure. This Rebel’s Market Long Sleeved Jumpsuit ($28.99) is similar:

Rebel's Market

Tadashi Shoji

Becca had the next one-on-one date and Ben decided to take her to the chapel, literally in a wedding gown. Of course they didn’t get married, but they got to help marry other people. Becca wore a sold out Show Me Your Mumu Fannie Flow Dress. I found this similar Freesia Dress ($178):

Lauren B. gets the first one-on-one date with Ben and gets to fly in a bi-plane with Ben. She wore a sold out Cottonwood Cold Shoulder Top from Francesca’s. I liked this Ella Moss Bella Ruffle Cold Shoulder Top ($138) to recreate the look:


Then a hot tub shows up out of nowhere…only on the Bachelor would that happen…

Steve Madden

Olivia seemed to be unfairly attacked this week, but I found it odd that after Ben announced that he had a death in the family she felt like it was a good time to talk about it with him. Timing is everything. Olivia wore a sold out Alice + Olivia sequin top and skirt. This Illusion Sweetheart Two Piece Homecoming Dress by Mac Duggal ($378) is similar:

Alice and Olivia

At the rose ceremony, Lace sent herself home – not a moment too soon. She definitely could not handle this process. Ben also sent Jami and Shushanna home.

In this scene, Ben offers the losers of the soccer game an ice cream treat:
