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.

A post shared by Gina Modica (@ginamo11) on

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)

 

What do you think about Rachel’s men?

Scandal “Head Games” Recap

ABC titled this episode “Head Games” when it should have been called “What’s in the box?!” a la Brad Pitt:

Mellie (Bellamy Young) is finally taking the oval with Frankie’s widow by her side. For her professional photos, she donned an orange blazer, which looked great on her. I found this Brooks Brothers Stretch Wool One-Button Blazer ($198) and this Harve Benard Knit Blazer ($67.99) to recreate her look:

Olitz is back on! These two just can’t stay away from each other. Fitz’s (Tony Goldwyn) focus on his last days in office are on presidential pardons. Olivia (Kerry Washington) can’t help but get involved and takes the stack back to OPA. She wore a Bell Sleeve Colorblock Blouse by Antonio Berardi ($1,345). This is such a unique piece making it hard to recreate but I found a few things that will work. This Lafayette 148 New York Marisa Blouse ($345), Calvin Klein Women’s V-Neck Bell Sleeve Blouse ($79.50):

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) is still on the outs with the President after her betrayal with Peus. She wore the Hugo Boss
Jadela Asymmetric Wool Jacket ($437.50). This Calvin Klein Two-Button Jacket ($59.99) is similar:

Olivia brings the team at OPA a new case – select a candidate for a high profile government pardon. She comes in hot rocking a power cape coat. I found this Choies Black Wool Blend Cape Coat ($29.90) if you want this look for yourself:

Olivia uses this as a test to see if Quinn is ready to take over OPA while she serves on Mellie’s staff. 

Meanwhile David Rosen (Joshua Malina) has brought a box with “Samantha’s” head to Abby’s apartment. He hopes that Jake (Scott Foley) can use it to figure out who she was. Rowan/Eli (Joe Morton) gave it to him and he wasn’t about to argue.

This leads them to discover that Marie Wallace (Khandi Alexander) is back in the picture and ultimately running Peus’ operation. Olivia wore a Cushnie Et Ochs Shawl-Collar Long Coat ($1,197). This Cupcakes and Cashmere Abria Drape Front Coat ($87.50) is similar:

What do you think about Olivia’s mother getting back in the game?

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?!

Bachelor 21 – Women Tell All

It’s time for the Women Tell All a.k.a. auditions for Bachelor in Paradise. The girls started off playing nice, but it didn’t take long for things to get ugly.

Sarah Vendal wore the Style Stalker Adelie Romper which you can rent for $60. This Lilly Pulitzer Tiki Lace Romper ($198) is similar:

Danielle Maltby wore a custom-made white jumpsuit. This Black Luxe Jersey Drape Front Jumpsuit ($96) is similar:

I felt a little bad for Taylor, but as with anything on this show, you have to focus on your own relationship with Nick and not worry about what the other girls are doing. For some reason he couldn’t leave Corinne alone. She was never going to win that battle because Corinne was laser focused on Nick. Taylor wore the Lioness Carrie Dress ($83):

Corinne was next to the hotseat and as annoyed as I was by some of her antics, she had her eye on the prize the whole time and was unapologetic for being herself. I have to admire that confidence. Corinne wore a For Love and Lemons Tarta Long Sleeve Mini Dress ($224) and Steve Madden Stecy Dress Sandal ($31.60):

Kristina comes up next and she is definitely a fan favorite. She wore the Lulus Outstanding Features Red Midi dress ($46):

Danielle Lombard wore Lulus Name of Love Black Lace dress ($74). This AQUA Sleeveless Lace Tiered Dress ($66) is similar:

Now enter our next Bachelorette, Rachel Lindsay! She wore a Dion Lee Axis Sleeve Knit Dress ($765). I found two similar options, this LIKELY Packard One-Shoulder Dress ($198) and this Girl Talk One Shoulder Midi Dress ($199):

Based on tonight’s “audition” who do you think will get invited to Bachelor in Paradise this year?

Bachelor 21 – Week 10

We started this episode with Raven’s morning after (which was totally overdone btw). Nick met up with Rachel next for their overnight date. As they are in Finland and the frigid weather, there isn’t a ton of fashion to cover this week. Everything was more functional. I’m not going to lie, but I think the penguin onesie may have did her in…

Vanessa started her overnight date with a Woolrich Down Parka ($789). This similar Women’s Arctic Down Parka ($199.99) is similar for less:

I love watching Nick and Vanessa together, you can see the chemistry between them and just the way they talk about each other…something special is happening. Things started to get serious as the date progressed and they were trying to work out some serious issues. Vanessa wore a Woolrich White Collection Women’s Wool Blanket Coat with Belt ($550):

These two keep getting cuter. After a deep conversation it seems like things are moving faster than any of his other relationships. Vanessa wore a cold shoulder sweater to keep her warm. This Chunky Open Shoulder Top ($45) is similar:

At the rose ceremony, Raven looked fantastic covering up everything with just a keyhole of cleavage in the Stone Cold Fox Victoria Dress ($93). This “Danni” Black Mockneck Long Sleeve Keyhole Sweater Dress ($34.99) is similar:

Vanessa wore a va-va-voom mermaid cut dress with a plunging sweetheart neckline from Boohoo. It is unfortunately sold out, but you can get this Trumpet Dress from Hebeos for just $132.99:

Rachel looked fierce in her rose ceremony dress, which was the perfect ending to her journey and beginning to her adventure as our next Bachelorette. Her dress is from Madison James ($378). This Vince Camuto Embellished Keyhole Halter Gown ($188) is a similar look for less:

What are your thoughts on the final two? Will it be Raven or Vanessa in the end?

Bachelor 21 – Week 9

We pick up right where Nick left off, with Andi popping by for a visit. This was equal parts awesome and awkward. These two have great chemistry together. I am still a little sad that she didn’t pick Nick on her season. I haven’t read her book yet but am hoping to soon-hopefully it explains a lot.

Andi definitely upped the fashion game this episode looking fantastic as usual. She wore these amazing Balenciaga Graphic suede ankle boots ($1335). They are still available in red. She also wore a sold out Vince Asymmetric Leather Jacket and sold out Vince Smooth Leather Leggings. To recreate her look you can snag this BB Dakota Laverne Faux Leather Jacket ($98), Aritzia Daria Pant ($135) and these insane look alike Charles David Robbi Booties ($89.95):

In the meantime, Nick’s other women are gathering for the rose ceremony. Vanessa is killing it again in her Nou Taupe Crossover Bust Maxi Dress ($214):

Rachel wore a Long Boucle Coat from Maje ($322.50) and a one shoulder green gown. To recreate her look try this Andrew Marc Laura Coat ($249) and this Lauren Ralph Lauren One-Shoulder Brooch Gown ($160):

Ultimately, Nick sent Corinne home and took his remaining ladies to Finland for the rest of the journey. Raven gets the first Fantasy Suite Date and they kick it off in a Finnish pub. She wore the Woolrich Two Tone Motif Sweater ($54.99):

The rest of their date gets pretty awkward with Raven revealing too much personal information on national television. She wore an off-the-shoulder red sweater. I thought this Free People Alana Slouchy Sweater ($64.80) was similar but wouldn’t fall off as much as hers did:

What did you think about Corinne’s exit and Raven’s Fantasy Suite date?

Bachelor 21 – Week 8

Nick ends the trip in Bimini by giving all the women roses to take them to hometown dates. First up is Raven in Hoxie, Arkansas. During the date, Raven finds out her dad is cancer free, which makes for a special moment. Nick mentions that their relationship is moving the fastest and I think that’s a pretty good sign that he’s into her. They went mud-bogging, so no exciting fashion to show on that date.

Next up is Dallas, Texas where Nick meets Rachel’s family. Rachel wore a fabulous Off White Cold Shoulder Tuxedo Jacket from Love Culture (sold out). If you take a closer look, you’ll notice that this is a cold shoulder vest, but she doesn’t put her arms in the “sleeves.” This 1. STATE Collarless Open Front Long Vest ($119) is similar:

She is also sporting the Stella and Dot Signature Engravable Bar Necklace ($59):

Corinne’s hometown date was interesting, I suspect that the shopping spree was producer funded. I think Corinne really thought she had something, but the writing is on the wall, this was essentially her first one-on-one date.

On to Canada for Vanessa’s hometown. The chemistry between these two is electric. Vanessa wore a cool wool and leather coat which is sold out from Zara. I found this Belle by Badgley Mischka Solid Long Sleeve Coat ($99.97) and this Vera Wang Taylor Wool-Blend Coat ($175.99) to recreate the look:

Vanessa is such a gem, you can really see her heart in this episode. Not to mention she is beautiful. She wore a sold out fur vest from Zara and these great leather pants with zippers on them. To recreate the look I found this Faux Fur Vest from Chadwicks ($59.99) and Scuba Hip Zip Leggings from Express ($35.94):

Now Nick has to decide between his ladies…Corinne thinks she is a shoo-in based on their hometown date. As she is contemplating from the balcony she wore a great sold out Bebe Faux Fur Ombre Coat. I found this similar Super Star Dip Dyed Faux Fur Coat ($67.92) if you want the look for yourself:

And cue to next week, where Andi Dorfman pops back into Nicks life…

Bachelor 21 – Week 7

So last week Nick left us with a pretty dramatic freak out, but don’t worry, after a chat with Chris Harrison he is all better. Now he can take the girls to Bimini, which I looked up so I could tell you that it is in the Bahamas. I had never even heard of it before. The girls seemed pretty excited about going there though. Vanessa got her second one-on-one date much to Corinne’s chagrin who hasn’t had a one-on-one. Vanessa wore a sold out Fringe Happy Together Blue Lace Strapless Romper. This Lovers + Friends Henna Romper ($53.40) is similar:

Vanessa is smokin hot in her evening look – no wonder Nick is smitten with her. She told Nick that she was in love with him and his response was really weird. I’m not sure where this leaves them. Vanessa wore the Lucy Slinky Knot Gather Detail Midi Dress ($30):

On the group date, Corinne tries to get Nick’s attention right off the bat by stripping down to her bikini. Kristina called her bluff and it appeared that Nick only had eyes for her. Kristina wore a Crochet Fringe Sweater Tank ($25) which made for a really cute cover up:

During the evening portion of the date Kristina wore a sold out ASTR black romper and a great double layer pendant necklace. To recreate the look I found this La Blanca Crocheted-Trim Long-Sleeve Romper Coverup ($95) and Stella and Dot Aria Pendant Necklace ($98):

We see Raven again in a Week 3 look, the sold out Stylestalker Sofala Midi Dress. This J.O.A. Scalloped Lace Midi Dress ($99) is similar:

It must have been her lucky dress, because Raven got the group date rose and a guaranteed hometown date. Danielle gets the next one-on-one date and just as it seems to be progressing nicely, Nick sends her home. She wore a sold out Nasty Gal Romper, but this Lace-Trim Surplice Romper ($32.99) is similar.

At this point Corinne has had it. She’s received no attention from Nick so she decides to put it all on the line and visit Nick in his room to “show” him how she feels. She wore a sold out Zara blouse, leather pants, Louboutins and her platinum vagine to pull out all the stops. You can get this similar Vince Camuto Georgette & Jersey Faux Wrap Blouse ($74):

Rachel was pumped for her one-on-one date and they had a local, casual date hanging out in Bimini. Rachel wore a stylish double split front maxi skirt. I found this Slit Maxi Skirt from Love, Fire ($45) to recreate her look:

Before I wrap up, this was the week that Jimmy Kimmel announced Rachel as our next Bachelorette. You can watch the clip below:

Rachel wore a Cushnie Et Ochs Asymmetric Open-Side Cami Dress ($1,395.00). This Bec & Bridge Onyx Asymmetrical Dress ($108) is similar:

What do you think about Rachel as The Bachelorette?
