Covert Affairs “Elevate Me Later” Recap

As this episode begins, things seem to be getting hot and heavy with Auggie (Christopher Gorham) and Hayley (Amy Jo Johnson). Right away Auggie gets a lead on “The Postman” the only lead they have in the Chicago attacks. Unfortunately, Auggie has to connect with his old flame, Natasha Petrovna (Liane Balaban) in order to track down the lead.

At the office Annie (Piper Perabo) wears a Scrunched Sleeve Blazer by Helmut Lang (sold out) and a mint blouse. This Kensie Women’s Stretch Crepe Blazer ($50.99) and this Chrissy Tulip Blouse In Mint ($38.99) are similar:

Auggie and Annie head to Paris to meet with Natasha to see if she will help them with a mission. Annie wears a Jonathan Saunders Lucy silk and cotton-blend jacquard dress (sold out). I liked this Tadashi Shoji Corded Lace Sheath Dress ($328) to recreate it:

Annie gets dressed up to try to find a way into the bank. If Natasha decides to help them in their quest, she’ll need to work her end. She wore the Roland Mouret Atria Wool Dress ($1,295 pounds). This Banana Republic Sloan Sheath ($140) is a great match:

It doesn’t take long for Auggie to jump into bed with Natasha and she agrees to help them on one condition, getting all of the charges against her dropped. Auggie tries to explain to Annie that he didn’t mean to sleep with Natasha, but it didn’t take him very long to forget all about poor Hayley. Annie wears the IRO Ashville Leather Moto Jacket (sold out) and carries the Stella McCartney Falabella – Small Shaggy Deer Tote (sold out). To recreate the look, I chose this Calvin Klein Women’s Faux-Leather Moto Jacket ($159.50) and this Kate Landry Bucket Hobo Bag ($79):

Annie needs to find a way into the bank, so she reaches out to Ivan Kravec (Martin Csokas) pretending to be a gun sales representative. Before her date with Ivan, she needs to get Natasha’s code key. Unfortunately, the CIA refuses to make a deal with her and Annie has to steal it, unbeknownst to Auggie. On her date with Ivan, she wore a navy fit and flare dress with gold/bronze strappy heels. I really loved this Sleeveless Lace Yoke Skater Dress ($29.99) and this Steve Madden Rykie Ankle Strap Heel ($109) to recreate the look:

Annie is able to give him just enough to keep the charade going and then she drugs him and gains access to his computer. Auggie is furious with Annie for running the mission her way without any consideration to his feelings.

She tries to make amends with him back in D.C., but he called in sick and she didn’t get a chance to connect with him. They did find out that their trail leads them back to Ivan, so it looks like Annie will have to see him again. Back in D.C. she wears a Peaked Lapel Blazer by Smythe (sold out). This was a hard one to recreate, but I did find this Denim & Co. One Button Leather Jacket with Pintuck Detail ($121):

Annie tried to make amends with Natasha on Auggie’s behalf and it seemed to work because she showed up at his doorstep at the end of the episode. Now what will he do about Hayley?

Covert Affairs “Silence Kit” Recap

This week’s episode of Covert Affairs has Annie (Piper Perabo) and Auggie (Christopher Gorham) tracking down new leads on “The Postman.” Annie wears a radiant orchid blouse. I thought this Button Collar Blouse from The Limited ($34.96) was a great match:

Annie starts a stakeout of CIA operative who might be responsible for the Chicago attack. Her working outfit is casual with a navy jacket and blue t-shirt. I found this Eddie Bauer Alti Beach Jacket ($39.99) and Scoopneck Tee ($7) from Old Navy to recreate the look:

During her stakeout, Annie gets sideswiped and has to go to the hospital. This puts her in jeopardy because the agency will find out that she has a heart condition. She has to come clean with Auggie before her secret comes out. She still wants to wrap up her stakeout before the agency finds out about her condition and puts her behind a desk.

We also find out where Annie was for all of those months – she went to Eyal (Oded Fehr) who helped her diagnosis her condition and keep it under the radar. I LOVE this character and hope that these two will eventually get together. Annie wore a fabulous maxi dress while she was in Israel. I thought this Felicity & Coco Ezri Print Maxi Dress ($88) was a great match:

Back in the present, Annie and Auggie have to convince Joan (Kari Matchett) to authorize their opp. She is busy trying to keep business from McQuaid (Nicholas Bishop) and trying to keep Calder (Hill Harper) from imploding on himself. Annie gets approval to try and turn her suspect’s wife, but she doesn’t take the bait.

Annie’s suspect ends up confronting her at her apartment and she has to use the gun that McQuaid gave her in last week’s episode. This blows the case wide open and they end up stopping another similar attack, so wins all around. Annie expects that Joan will confront her about her heart condition, but she just scolds her for working with a concussion. Annie looks smart in a belted black sheath. I found this Jones New York Collection Brooke Sheath Dress ($119) to recreate her workplace look:

black sheathAnnie realizes that Auggie changed her medical records so nobody would find out about her heart condition. She heads over to his apartment to thank him and finds Haley (Amy Jo Johnson) there. So much for them dating before, there doesn’t seem to be anything left between them at this point. I loved how she paired her dress with a lightweight trench and green bag. I think this Urban Outfitters Silence + Noise Drapey Trench Coat ($149) and Ralph Lauren Tate Classic Tote ($109.99) are perfect!

Covert Affairs “Unseen Power of the Picket Fence” Recap

On this episode of Covert Affairs, Annie (Piper Perabo) and McQuaid (Nicholas Bishop) have to work together to get Borz (Michael Goorjian) out of Venezuela. They are initially thwarted at the border and are forced to take alternate measures.

In this episode Annie wears a Field Vest by Sanctuary ($92.24) and Prada Keyhole Sunglasses ($310). This Studded Military Vest ($36.90) and these Winston Keyhole Bridge Sunglasses ($14) are similar:

We end up getting a glimpse of Annie’s dark side when she lies to Borz about what happened to his sister. In the end, she gets the information she was looking for and I don’t feel too bad for Borz since he was a terrorist. Annie and McQuaid make it safely out of the country and live to fight another day.

McQuaid is still flirting with Annie and sent her a new gun as a gift. I love the sky blue blouse she is wearing and found this Gathered V-Neck Blouse from Express ($49.90) to match it:

Covert Affairs “False Skorpion” Recap

This week’s Covert Affairs sees Annie (Piper Perabo) packing her bags to Venezuela on the hunt for Borz Altan (Michael Goorjian). As she packs her bag, she makes sure to bring her secret medication, which is still a mystery. Annie wears a Mesh Back V Neck Top by Derek Lam (sold-out). This L’Agence Silk Tank with Mesh Racerback ($68) is similar:

On her hunt for Borz, she runs into McQuaid (Nicholas Bishop) who wants an hour alone with Borz before he gets turned over to the CIA. Annie carries the Explorer Crossbody Bag by Fossil ($178) and wears the Rag & Bone Classic Newbury Booties ($525). This Great American Leatherworks Triple Compartment Crossbody Bag ($79.99) and Jessica Simpson Maxi Booties ($44.99) are similar:

Annie competes with McQuaid to see who can find Borz first, she almost has him, but unfortunately, has an attack without her medication. McQuaid shows up to save the day and secure Borz, but not without getting his time alone to question Borz.

Annie reveals to McQuaid that she has a heart condition and that the CIA can’t find out about it or they would take her off of active duty.

In the meantime, Auggie (Christopher Gorham) gets investigated by the NCTC and agent Hayley Price (Amy Jo Johnson – pink Power Ranger anyone?). He comes down pretty hard on her initially, but by the end of the episode they are sleeping together!! He sure didn’t waste any time.
