The Good Wife “Lies” Recap

Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) and Luca (Cush Jumbo) take on a case from Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) this week of a woman who lied to her employer. Alicia wore a sold out Nanette Lepore Graphic Tweed Jacket. This Tahari Tweed Zip-Front Jacket ($90.35) is similar:

Nanette Lepore

Alicia and Luca look into insurance for the firm, but they also have to insure Jason (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) who Alicia is concerned about. Luca wore a chic black dress with a white collar ruffle. I found this Ralph Lauren Spread Collar Lace Dress ($184) to recreate the look:

Ralph Lauren

Diane (Christine Baranski), Cary ( Matt Czuchry), David (Zach Grenier) and Howard (Jerry Adler) interview a potential intern and couldn’t have been more discriminatory towards her in the interview. Diane wore a sold out Akris Punto Mini Dot Jacquard Jacket. This Lafayette 148 New York Lynn Blazer ($598) is similar:


Luca and Alicia aren’t doing so well in court due to a few technicalities. Alicia wore a red belted blazer. I found a similar style in this White House Black Market Seasonless Belted Blazer ($66.99):

Belted blazer

As Diane campaigns to hire Monica, she wore the Pono Summer’s Dream Resin Necklace ($325). This Melisa Necklace ($50) is similar:


Alicia and Luca are back in court and they have to bring in their super secret NSA witness. I always love these storylines because they are so fun! Alicia wore a navy peplum blazer with a little puff in the shoulders. The best I could find to match this was this Calvin Klein Notched Collar Suit Jacket ($77.40).

Navy blazer

After Diane brings in Monica to let her down she receives an email with a YouTube video detailing how Lockhart, Agos, Lee treated Monica horribly and discriminated her in their hiring. This will mean trouble for their firm in the future. Diane wore a red and black leopard print blazer. This Banana Republic Animal Print Blazer ($178) provides a similar look:

Leopard blazer

Diane continues to push Monica to no avail, Monica makes it clear that the only thing that will assuage her is a job.

In other news, Peter (Chris Noth) announces his candidacy for president with Alicia by his side, in similar fashion to Obama. I loved this scene with Alicia and Peter because working in the public relations world I sometimes feel that the viewer/reader has no idea what actually goes into these sorts of events and that was a small albeit humorous example.

The Good Wife “Payback” Recap

This week Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) and Luca (Cush Jumbo) take on their first case, a collection harassment suit. Jason Crouse (Jeffrey Dean Morgan) shows his value right off the bat, calling the collection representative at home and intimidating him. I am interested to see where his character goes this season. Alicia wore a sold out Escada Piped Tweed Jacket. This Catherine Malandrino Jeane Jacket ($114.99) is similar:


Over at Lockhart, Agos, Lee, Cary (Matt Czuchry) and Howard (Jerry Adler) are at odds in a somewhat humorous/serious situation. I only wonder what Will would have said about this if he was still here. Diane (Christine Baranski) tries to mediate the situation between them. She wore a gorgeous red and black floral peplum dress. I found a similar look in this Tahari ASL Satin Jacquard Sheath Dress ($96).

Tahari dress

Alicia and Luca attend a mediation with their client in hopes of making their small case a much bigger case. Alicia wore a Lafayette 148 New York Patterned Two-Button Jacket ($748). I thought this Stylishelf Floral Print One Button Blazer Jacket ($34.98) had a similar look:


Meanwhile, Diane, Cary and Howard attend their own mediation to address the discrimination against Howard. It is sort of funny until you realize that he is serious and could potentially sue the firm. Diane wore an Oscar de la Renta Floral Wool Day Dress ($899.99). This Colorblock Sheath Dress ($180) from White House Black Market is similar:

Oscar de la Renta

The firm has to take sensitivity training to understand how Howard feels as an 80-year-old man. Diane wore a hot pink tie blouse. This Park Avenue Bow Blouse ($26.97) is similar:

hot pink blouse

Eli (Alan Cumming), cunning as he is, has Alicia turn her case into a debt-strike. This seems fine until you realize that this hurts Peter’s (Chris Noth) standing with the unions. This gets brought up at one of their appearances and Eli shows what a great manipulator he can be. Alicia wore a Narciso Rodriguez Paneled Stretch-Crepe Dress ($758) with a matching sold out Narciso Rodriguez Crepe One Sided Lapel Jacket. To recreate the look, I found this Laundry by Shelli Segal Floral-Jacquard Sleeveless Dress ($57.40) and this Ivanka Trump Colorblocked Blazer ($78.19):

Narcisso Rodriguez

Do you think this will bet Eli back in Peter’s good graces? Stay tuned…

The Good Wife “Taxed” Recap

Louis Canning (Michael J. Fox) takes on a assisted suicide case with his particular brand of theatrics. Diane (Christine Baranski) is keeping tabs on the case for her client, until her client wants her to take over for Canning’s opponent even though she doesn’t want to argue against assisted suicide.

Meanwhile, Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) is back at bond court the other attorneys are competing to see who can get through the most cases based on the defendant’s weight. Alicia wants no part of their game. She wore a white, black and grey zip up blazer. I found a similar style in this Laundry by Shelli Segal Contrast Lace-Panel Jacket ($119.99):


Diane is arguing a case that she doesn’t believe in, but she is between a rock and a hard place with her firm’s largest client. Diane wore a Carolina Herrera Metallic Floral Jacket ($478.99) to argue in court. This StyleStalker Forever Floral Blazer ($75.99) is similar:

Carolina Herrera

Diane seems to be no match for Canning’s investigators who blow her argument. She wore a collarless black and white blazer. This Calvin Klein Marbled Zip-Front Blazer ($114.99) is similar:

Calvin Klein3

Alicia gets shunned in bond court after taking too much time with one client and poaching cases from the other attorneys by accident. After all of the rigmarole she ends up having to take a plea so her client can protect her mother, so none of it was necessary in the end. She decides yet again to start her own firm with Luca (Cush Jumbo) and a new chapter.

The Good Wife “Cooked” Recap

I’m not sure I would respond if I arrived at home and found Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler) waiting for me, but Alicia handles it in stride. She wore the Armani Collezioni Two-Button Collarless Blazer ($997.50). This Kensie Three-Quarter-Sleeve Collarless Blazer ($89) is similar:


Bond court is heating up for Alicia with an exciting drug case, while Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) is being propositioned by Howard (which is hilarious!). Eli (Alan Cummings) is still having a battle of wits with Ruth (Margo Martindale) and she wants Alicia and her mother to appear on Mama’s Homespun Cooking, a cooking show. Little does she know that is probably better in theory than execution.

Diane (Christine Baranski) is trying to find someone new to mentor and I was appalled by the girl’s response to her generous offer. Even if you plan to start a family you don’t throw that kind of offer back in someone’s face. I was embarrassed for her. Diane wore a teal perforated leather blazer. I found a few different styles to recreate the look. The first a Mark Zunino Faux Leather Jacket ($35.90) and the second a Laundry by Shelli Segal Long Ponte Open-Front Jacket ($59.25):

perforated blazer

Alicia and Veronica’s (Stockard Channing) segment was better than Eli could have hoped for. They totally crashed and burned and it was glorious. Alicia wore a Jason Wu Belted Draped Dress (sold out). This Tahari by ASL Viviana – W Dress ($64.99) is similar:

Jason Wu

Alicia discovers that her case is really an elaborate sting to catch the judge taking a bribe. Alicia wore a burgundy blazer and I found this similar Collection Flap Pocket Jacket ($101.97) to recreate the look:

merlot blazer

Shocker! At the end of the episode Eli warned the judge and he didn’t take the bribe, but instead wants some help with Frank Landau…what is he up to?

Diane is pissed that Alicia is helping Howard, which really wasn’t her fault, they just won’t realize that Alicia is not the enemy. The stuff with Howard and Jackie is pretty hilarious though. I can’t wait to see where that goes.

The Good Wife “We, the Juries” Recap

This week’s episode of The Good Wife finds Will (Josh Charles) and Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) thrown together again on a new case, but this time they have to work together for the good of their clients. Alicia wears a grey skirt suit in the courtroom. I found a similar Emporio Armani blazer ($290):

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 8.29.57 PM

Cary (Matt Czuchry) and Diane (Christine Baranski) agree to co-chair on the case so Will and Alicia keep level heads. Diane wears a red asymmetric blazer. This Lafayette 148 Couture Cloth Stellan Jacket ($358.80) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 8.42.23 PM

The double jury trial starts to get confusing as each jury is only allowed to hear certain parts of the trial. Alicia wears a black blazer with white print. This Calvin Klein Tweed Jacket ($87.99)  is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 9.07.34 PM

Diane wears a wine colored dress with a pearl necklace, similar to her outfit from The Next Month episode. The same Anne Klein Ribbed Sweater Dress ($72.52) would work for this one as well:

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 9.31.31 PM

In the meantime, Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) is trying to get back into Cary’s good graces, but I think that ship has sailed for her. Cary gets a drink spilled on him and goes to the bathroom. He leaves his phone on the bar and Kalinda sees a private text from Robyn about one of Lockhart Gardner’s clients jumping ship. It doesn’t take her long for her to talk to Will and get him to set up a meeting with the client. What she doesn’t realize is that Cary played her with false information that seriously offended the client. Who’s laughing now?!

After last week’s video reveal of the election fraud, Marilyn (Melissa George) has to question everyone on Peter’s (Chris Noth) team, including Alicia who acted as his lawyer. Once Alicia sees the video she is furious and marches down to Peter’s office to demand that he fixes this immediately for the Zach’s sake as he would have to testify in front of the Feds if it continues. Alicia wears a grey blazer with a lighter lapel. This Joie Neville B Two Tone Blazer ($126.40) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-26 at 9.21.06 PM

I love the scene between Kalinda and Cary because she isn’t even mad at him, she just respects his cunning maneuver! She still wants to get a drink with him and he agrees to go with her…maybe they will still be friends after all.

Marilyn finally gets to investigate Will, but he can’t say anything because Peter is covered by attorney/client privilege. They speak alone in chambers and Will finally throws down with Peter about taking away Diane’s judgeship and then Peter throws back sleeping with Alicia in his face! They are at a standstill, but Peter frustrates Marilyn by not allowing him to testify for Marilyn.

Eli (Alan Cumming) and Marilyn are at a standstill – she can’t complete her investigation because Will won’t testify. This is really going to hurt Peter. Who knows what will happen next?!

The Good Wife “Goliath and David” Recap

Before we get started, a big congratulations is in order to The Good Wife and Josh Charles for winning People’s Choice Awards for best drama series and best actor in a drama series!

If you love the style on The Good Wife, costume designer Daniel Lawson is taking pre-orders for his new clothing line 35DL.

On to this week’s episode…We pick up where we left off at the Florrick, Agos & Associates Christmas party when Eli (Alan Cumming) finds out that Marilyn (Melissa George) is naming her baby Peter, after the father. Eli freaks out thinking that Peter (Chris Noth) is the father. Marilyn tells him that is crazy, but he can’t take that at face value.

During the party, Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) and Cary (Matt Czuchry) retain a new client – a band that is suing for copyright infringement. Matthew Lillard guest stars and is great in this role. The band ends up suing one of Burl Preston’s clients (guest star Murray Abraham) who is an old foe of Alicia’s. He heads to Lockhart Gardner, but finds Will (Josh Charles) instead who wants to get in on the action to piss off Alicia and to start expanding in LA.

Will and Diane (Christine Baranski) are butting heads on expanding Lockhart Garder. Will is making too many changes too quickly and Diane tries to slow him down by putting a two-month ban on soliciting new clients. She wears a red wrap coat and a black chain link necklace. To recreate this look try this Le Suit Jacket ($59.99) and NEXTE Cuban Link Necklace ($27.59):

Screen Shot 2014-01-09 at 7.11.38 PM

Will and Burl visit Alicia and Cary to negotiate. Alicia is genuinely stunned to see Will there. She tells him to get over it, her that is, but he just laughs it off. Alicia wears a Armani Collezioni Herringbone Blazer ($523.25). This Antonio Melani Kloey Jacket ($119.40) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 6.12.59 PM

In the meantime, Eli decides to hire Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) to investigate Marilyn and find out who the father of her baby is.

In court, Will uses everything he knows about Alicia to throw her off of her game. Alicia wears a Smokey Plaid Cecille Jacket ($798) and Aviana Skirt ($298.80) by Lafayette 148. This Pendleton Cordelia Jacket ($207.99) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 7.12.13 PM

Cary tells Alicia that Will is trying to get under her skin and convinces her not to let him get to her. She decides to leave and change into the suit she wore the first time they slept together in the Season 2 finale to remind him of that event. This definitely shows that they aren’t over each other. If that can still throw him off his game, he still has feelings for her. I can’t believe how she talked to Will, it definitely seems like the gloves are off in a big way! This Calvin Klein Khaki Skirt Suit ($144.96) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 7.45.13 PM

Kalinda meets Marilyn at the doctor’s office trying to get more information out of here in casual conversation, but is interrupted by her new cop friend, courtesy of Damian. This pisses her off – don’t mess with Kalinda at work!

Back in court, Alicia and Cary lose the court ruling, but they aren’t ready to give up yet. They got back to court to get an extension to find additional evidence. Alicia wears a color block suit from Basler (Jacket, $521.25, Skirt $221.25). This black and white Tahari colorblock suit ($164.98) provides a similar look:

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 8.15.03 PM

Diane is dealing with a tricky situation of her own as Damian is trying to swing the firm’s vote in her favor on the expansion. She wears a great snow leopard blazer. This Calvin Klein Blazer ($97.99) is similar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-10 at 8.26.07 PM

Will and Diane eventually come to terms with the direction the firm is going and she agrees to let him move forward. Well that’s what it seems like in the moment, but we will see if she has something else up her sleeve.

Kalinda’s investigation of Marilyn doesn’t provide anything conclusive…if anything it only makes Eli’s suspicions stronger. A reporter calls Eli with a video of what he thinks is Marilyn and Peter, but it is really of the Florrick campaign rigging votes…you didn’t think that was forgotten did you? After it doesn’t matter anymore, Marilyn reveals that the father of her baby isn’t Peter Florrick, but another Peter.

Robin (Jess Weixler) ends up finding the missing link in the band’s song in order to get them back in the court game. Alicia is able to best Will at his own game and the band gets the money they deserve. I loved Matthew Lillard in this role, so much fun!

What do you think will happen to Peter and Alicia with this new damaging video? Just as she started her new firm, this would ruin everything she’s worked for.

Don’t forget that at the end of last season Will had a copy of this video too – he may not be so forgiving this time…

The Good Wife “The Decision Tree” Recap

This marked The Good Wife’s 100th episode and I love how they did a little homage to it with the speedometer in the opening scene.

We begin with a Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) car chase…only to find out that she is chasing Damian Boyle (Jason Mara) on behalf of Diane (Christine Baranski). It doesn’t sit well that he ends up at Florrick Agos on some unknown mission.

Turns out that he is on a mission from David Lee (Zach Grenier) to settle Alicia’s (Julianna Marguilles) exit package. In looking over the documents she finds an odd mention of an old client, Matthew Ashbaugh (John Noble). Alicia wears a Basler Jacket and Armani Skirt. This Anne Klein Tweed Fringe Jacket ($84.99) provides a similar look:

Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 6.16.52 PM

We are taken back in time when Alicia was working with Mr. Ashbaugh. She wears a deep purple blazer. I found a similar Cashmere One Button Blazer ($189):

Screen Shot 2014-01-02 at 10.16.20 PM

It turns out the Mr. Ashbaugh left Alicia $12 million dollars in his will, but his wife is contesting the will. Alicia wears a sold-out Michael Kors Origami Collar Tweed Jacket. This Anne Klein Tweed Fashion Blazer ($70.79) has a similar unique collar:

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 1.06.05 AM

 This is where things start to get interesting. Alicia takes us through some flashbacks as she is remembering specific details of the case. In the first flashback, she is wearing a bright plum blazer. I found a similar Calvin Klein Aubergine blazer ($57.59):

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 11.10.11 AM

I love that they let Clarke Hayden (Nathan Lane) cross-examine the witness. He is so wonderfully awkward but perfect for the role! I especially love when he comes up the the loophole every time!

In the meantime, Kalinda is still chasing down Damian, but he has her pulled over and arrested by one of his cop friends on the force.

In court, Diane wears an mandarin style collar Armani jacket with a vintage pin. This Tahari Ivory Suit Separates Jacket ($69.99) is similar and I found this great vintage pin on Etsy for $3.50 – you can’t beat that:

Screen Shot 2014-01-03 at 12.10.54 PM

As the hearing continues we see that the weekend Will (Josh Charles) and Alicia spent with Ashbaugh, were smack dab in the middle of their affair. It is deliciously awkward to watch them interact now knowing that they have to relive this again. I also love how the costume designer has both Will and Alicia remembering Alicia wearing different colors – that is such a great detail that works great in the scene.

Watching Will work on his cross questions was probably the best scene since he confronted Alicia about leaving. We find out that being with Will was the happiest time in her life and that Will thinks that Alicia made him think that she loved him so she could steal his clients. WOW…that was such a cathartic scene. There is so much between these characters and I will be so disappointed if they never circle back together.

As all of this is happening, Eli (Alan Cumming) is trying to block Peter (Chris Noth) from attending Alicia’s holiday party because of some of the unsavory clientele that might attend. He ends up setting up a meeting with Donna Brazil and dangles a possible Vice-Presidential nod in front of Peter – this boy is moving on up…

Will’s cross-examination of Alicia doesn’t exactly go as planned when she turns the table on them. There are so many awkward pauses but they speak volumes! I love how the writers/directors put that scene together – it was so awesome! In the end it turns out that Mr. AshBaugh had numerous wills, so they were all deemed invalid. I feel like Will’s conversation with gave us a glimmer of hope – at least he said Happy Holidays.

So much to Eli’s dismay, Peter decides to bring Donna Brazil to the holiday party and Lemond Bishop (the drug dealer client) ends up attending the party. But the real kicker is when Alicia’s mom (Stockard Channing) is talking to Marilyn (Melissa George) about her crazy pregnancy sound system and asks about the baby. Marilyn tells us that its a boy and its name is Peter, which causes Eli to spit his water out. I don’t know if that is foreshadowing of any kind because the writers have flirted around with Peter and Marilyn, but it could also just be a joke – who knows?

What did you think of this week’s episode of The Good Wife? Do you think that Peter is Marilyn’s baby daddy? What about Kalinda’s new relationship with the cop? And what will happen with Will and Alicia?

The Good Wife “Whack-a-Mole” Recap

Florrick Agos and Lockhart Gardner are in similar positions this week. FA needs to get more clients and make a splash. LG needs to hire more attorneys to make up for their loss and work on retaining their clients. Alicia (Julianna Marguiles) gets a call from an old client who is in need of her help. She is wearing an embellished Escada Jacket and an Etro Embellished Top ($810). To recreate the look, this Calvin Klein Hardware Jacket ($66.96) and this Beaded Silky Halter Top ($21.47) do the trick. Thanks to WornOnTV for the Jacket find. embellished halter Will (Josh Charles) and Diane (Christine Baranski) meet with a headhunter to find some new talent. Will takes a different approach to hiring, by trying to find non-traditional people for the firm. Diane wears a teal and black colorblocked dress. I found a similar dress by Gabriella Rocha ($13.80): colorblock dress Will ends up looking into Damian Boyle (Jason Mara) who is a hunk with an Irish accent, LOVE! Will goes ahead and hires Damian without consulting with anyone else. This puts Diane in a difficult spot. She wears a blue and purple tweed dress and jacket. I found a similar tweed outfit in this Tahari Sheath Dress ($90.30) and matching blazer ($104.30):


Meanwhile, Alicia is in court trying to get an injunction against a social entertainment website that is disparaging her client. Alicia wears a red Gucci blazer and Escada skirt. I found a similar Merona blazer ($29.99):

red blazer

While they are in court, the new guy decides to play a prank on Florrick Agos and steal all of their office furniture. This guy is definitely going to shake things up. He sneaks a peak at their files and decides to hop in on Alicia’s internet case and has the gall to wear the #1 Mom pin from her desk on his lapel. This threw Alicia off, but let’s be honest, it would have thrown me off too. I wouldn’t expect anyone to act that immature.

Jackie (Mary Beth Peil) and Eli (Alan Cumming) butt heads again when he tries to find a new Supreme Court Justice to replace Diane. Jackie doesn’t want him to hire the candidate because she slept with Peter’s (Chris Noth) father (wow…like father like son…).

Diane gathers the partners to take a vote on Damien’s partnership, but they all decide to change their minds and keep him on. So she asks Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) to properly vet him. Diane wears a patterned blouse. I found a similar color Antonio Melani blouse ($89):

gold blouseThings get serious when Alicia’s client loses his job, so they decide to go at the case in a different way. Alicia wears an Escada blazer ($975) and Alexander McQueen skirt. This  TanJay Printed Notch-Collar Blazer ($20.30) is similar:

The Good Wife “The Next Month” Recap

This week on The Good Wife Lockhart Gardner becomes “LG.” Will (Josh Charles) is fired up about expanding and rebranding the firm. Diane (Christine Baranski) wears a red paisley brocade jacket by Stella McCartney. I found a similar scroll blazer at Dress Barn ($46):

red blazerLG is so busy with the expansion, they don’t have time to talk to Natalie Flores (America Ferrara), who is bringing them an important case with the State Department. They pawn her off to Howard Lyman (Jerry Adler) who is racist and completely unprofessional with her. Natalie instead takes her business to Alicia (Julianna Marguilles).

In the meantime, Florrick Agos finally gets office space in a factory style building. They are trying to bill it as a hip startup. They decide to take Natalie’s case because it has the potential to send them lots of extra business. Alicia wears a floral embroidered Rena Lange jacket. I think the best match is the same scroll blazer at Dress Barn ($46), but the grey version:

grey blazer

Marilyn (Melissa George) and Eli (Alan Cumming) visit Alicia because Peter (Chris Noth) wants to come to the office and congratulate his wife. They wanted to come first and make sure there weren’t any ethical violations. Marilyn wears a Saint Laurent Black Leather Ruffle Cady Dress. This was pretty unique, so I just tried to find a professional leather trim dress that you could wear to office. This dress from Venus ($34) does the trick:

leather dress

Eli runs into Natalie at Alicia’s office and is visibly moved by seeing her again. He invites her out to dinner. Will finally realizes that they messed up with Natalie by letting her talk to Howard and desperately try to get her back.

Unfortunately, Florrick Agos needs to make cuts to keep moving forward. Robin (Jess Weixler) was the last person hired and they decide to let her go but she overhears them talking and decides to approach Kalinda (Archie Panjabi) to get her old job back. Kalinda tells her to make herself indispensable so they won’t fire her. I thought this was great advice to give any young professional.

Robin decides to help Alicia and Natalie out in there case, and boy is she determined. She ends up hunting down their missing person in less than two hours.

During Eli’s dinner with Natalie, he tells her that Peter won’t be giving his minority talk anymore. She was disappointed and this eventually leads Eli to reschedule the talk. This change ends up embarrassing Marilyn in front of Peter, so she starts looking into why Eli might have changed his mind about the speech.

Alicia and Cary (Matt Czuchry) end up running all over town to different courts in order to appeal their case. Alicia wears a gold zip front L’Agence suit jacket ($299) with an Alexander McQueen pencil skirt. I found a similar Dana Buchman blazer for $24:

zip front

On the other side, Will is busy drowning his sorrows in his college-aged girlfriend. She is the complete opposite of Alicia, which makes it interesting to watch Will with her. He does end up getting Natalie to reconsider taking her business to LG since its not going very well with Alicia and Cary.

Poor Diane gets stuck with trying to wrangle Howard into apologizing to Natalie. He is a piece of work! Diane looks great in a wine colored dress with lots of pearls. I found a similar Anne Klein ribbed dress ($129):

wine dress

 Eli almost cancels his dinner with Natalie, but then he mans up and decides to meet with her. It is so funny to see him be so off balance with her.

Peter finally visits Alicia’s office with no ethical violation, whew, I was worried about that one (insert sarcasm here).

Nothing too crazy this week, most of the fun was watching Eli be nervous.

The Good Wife “The Next Week” Recap

Lockhart Gardner is still reeling from Alicia (Julianna Marguilles) and Cary’s (Matt Czuchry) betrayal. When a client calls for Alicia, Will (Josh Charles) quickly takes on the client. Diane (Christine Baranski) wears a St. John Tweed Jacket and a PONO by Joan Goodman necklace. I found a similar red Studio Tahari Blazer ($99.99) and Stella & Dot’s Tempest Necklace ($198) to recreate the look:

tweed red

In the meantime, Florrick Agos is experiencing financial difficulty. They desperately need to get office space and the natives are starting to get restless. Alicia wears an Escada blazer with a white panel added for contrast. I found a similar Jones Studio Two-Tone Blazer ($79.50):

black and white

Will’s easy DUI case suddenly turns into a murder charge out of nowhere. Alicia is subpoenaed to Lockhart Gardner because they are being sued again. I couldn’t believe how ballsy she was in blackmailing Diane to get her capital contribution back! Who knew she had it in her?

I love the exchange between them:

Diane: “You know, sometimes I look at you and I wonder if you changed or you’ve always been this way.”

Alicia: “I had some of the best teachers in the world. I couldn’t help but change.”

Clarke Hayden (Nathan Lane) also returns to help Florrick Agos with their money issues. I love his character!

Alicia heads back to Lockhart Gardner for her deposition. She wears a fabulous No. 35 leather and suede jacket. I found a similar Anne Klein Faux Leather Trim Jacket ($126.75):

leather jacket

Diane wears a Lafayette 148 Gold Tweed Jacket. I found a similar Antonio Melani Amy Jacket ($129):

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 10.13.53 AM

I love the interaction between Will and Owen (Dallas Roberts), hilarious. This also makes Will look more human and makes me feel bad for him. I also love the fact that Owen calls Alicia a warrior princess!

I LOVE that long stare Will gives Alicia at the office, they say nothing, but that look says so much! Alicia wears a flannel Ferragamo grey blazer. I found a similar JCrew blazer for $375, so you might want to wait for a JCrew coupon on that one:

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 10.53.24 AM

Will and Diane are back to business, figuring out how to win their case, I love to see them working as a team – that high five was classic! Diane wears what looks like a bright blue tweed jacket. This Classiques Entier Vedi Tweed Jacket ($268) is similar:

Screen Shot 2013-12-10 at 11.18.03 AM

I can’t believe Owen stopped by Will’s office to talk about Alicia – holy crap! If Alicia knew she would be so mad. But Owen is a great character, because he says everything that Alicia is feeling but would never say.

And let’s not forget sweet Zach (Graham Phillips), protecting his sister. What a sweet brother!

I can’t believe Anthony Edelman (Bhavesh Patel)- he has been messing things up for the firm from the beginning! What a jerk! I can’t believe he sold out Alicia on this. It will be interesting to see how he damages the firm.
