so about those bachelor fashion recaps…

sorrrrrrrrrrrrrrry.

many of you have been questioning my dedication to this weekly endeavor, and rightfully so. i’ll get back to business soon…hopefully next week?

in the meantime, check out the possessionista for all of your bachelor (and other tv) fashion fixes. she tells you what the girls were wearing and where you can snag it for yourself.

today, she has posted an interview with meghan, who got the boot last week. (she was the one that wore the pink d&g wedges the first night.) apparently, meghan used to be a marketing manager for d&g! no fair.

bachelor fashion recap: week three

i have to begin with this:

totally normal behavior displayed by a stable human being who’s definitely NOT creepy at all

okay, glad i got that out of my system. let’s move onto the important stuff: rose ceremony attire! (catch up on weeks one and two if you haven’t yet.)

let’s talk about alli’s dress, which i didn’t hate:

“it’s good to know we’re both looking for a stable relationship with somebody we can enjoy.” um, duh? what is this, dating 101? actually, for some of these women’s sake, i wish it was…

{jay godfrey one shoulder cocktail mini dress}

by choosing this dress, alli is exhibiting some classic characteristics of a man repeller. personally, i like the bow, and i think most other women would at least try on this dress too, but this is exactly the kind of attire that confuses men. in fact, if i wore this, my guy friends would probably ask me why my dress had a huge spider on it. i’m very glad alli explained this to brad because, otherwise, he would’ve sat there the whole time wondering, “what the HECK is on her shoulder?” so good job, alli.

wait. pause.

“can i have you for a second?”

literally 5 seconds later:

“can i have you for a second?”

amazing. so many reasons to love this show. also, this week, updo-gate continues…

we believe in you, britt!!

plenty of “meh” looks this week. based on past performance, i expected more from marissa, jackie, and ashley h.

time to step it up, LADIES. last i heard, this was a COMPETITION.

now i’d like to introduce you the worst looks of the night:

blah.

ack.

whoa.

speaking of madison, i actually think she is very pretty. but what’s with the producers showing the most awful shots of her during the rose ceremony?! correct me if i’m wrong, but one of a girl’s biggest fears is being photographically captured during a terrible moment. i feel sorry for her…she was wronged!

someone wake madison up from this hellish nightmare!!!

the two best dressed girls of the night just happened to be sitting next to each other on the couch at the cocktail party.

sorry, kellie pickler…i mean, ashley s.!

{aidan mattox sequined mesh sheath dress}

{alice + olivia kline fitted mesh back & sleeve dress}

and was it just me, or were the exit interviews this week, kiiiiinda intense/weird?

they regret this.

but get pumped for next week!!

dr. drew!!!!!!!!!

more creepin!!!/week 4 of updo-gate rolls on!!!

the answer to the age-old question: “how does one wake up with a black eye?”

ohhhhhh man. i’m sure it’s going to be GREAT. in fact, it will probably be the most dramatic rose ceremony yet!

so far, there seems to be no frontrunner for this season’s “best dressed” title. ashley s., meghan, lisa, and marissa all have one point each.

who will come out on top? find out next week on…the bachelor. (channeling chris harrison!)

thanks to the possessionista for the tips on what all the girls were wearing. check out her post to see where you can more of the looks!

bachelor fashion recap: week two

the previews for what’s in store this week is INSANE. week two is WAY too early to be shedding tears and freaking out about not having enough time with brad, ladies! (melissa.)

also, will these girls never learn that america does not care that it’s your birthday. (especially if you’re clearly a raging psychopath.) i’d say it also doesn’t entitle you to a rose, but apparently brad didn’t agree.

mmmmmmmmmm he really loves me

first up, a one on one with ashley h, the dentist. a lot of sparks for a first date, dontchathink?

haute hippie sequined tulle cocktail dress, says the possessionista. (already sold out online, of course.)

most certainly, this was an improvement on the sparkly hot pink tie back dress from last week. i like ashley h. she doesn’t seem clinically insane, which automatically puts her near the top of the pack for now. (doesn’t take much.) although her use of her hands while speaking was slightly distracting. it was almost like watching someone communicating via sign language.

cheap shot? sorry.

the group date was too much to handle. this cannot be ignored:

unfortunate updo of the week.

i must make known that i fast forwarded through melissa’s one on one time with brad on the rooftop. am i wrong or does it come off as very desperate when you have to tell someone why you’re great? like…let them take some time to figure it out for themselves? melissa is, for sure, exhibiting man repelling behavior when she should be PROPELLING.

oh, and i guess this was pretty bad:

raichel was sadly misinformed about the trip to the miami nightclub that would be happening later in the night.

jackie got the traditional neil lane treatment. and she got a rose…even though brad was practically hyperventilating as he gave it to her.

jackie and i are grateful for the pretty woman experience. (where did she get this top? limited too?)

this alberto makali beaded cowl neck gown (from the possessionista) is pretty, but i wish she had picked something that looked a little younger. this is something dame judi dench would wear to the oscars. okay, maybe not THAT old. helen mirren?

believe it or not, i don’t mind jackie too much either so i feel bad for bashing on her dress, but someone look me in the eye and tell me that she didn’t squander some major potential.

anyway. time for the rose ceremony!

oh. NO. maybe this is how she always wears her hair?!?

this dress actually had some cool structural stuff going on at the bottom…devastatingly ruined by the ruffle bolero.

guys, she NEVER cries.

ali in her best serena van der woodsen costume.

the looks i hated this week:

sarah’s chiffon blue ruffle front cocktail dress, stacy’s jewelry, and UGH.

emily and jackie’s choices grew on me as the night went on:

i had 3 dresses i loved! 3!!! (it was a good night in the mansion.)

keltie’s plum one-shoulder, tie-waist number. (her meltdown was hard to watch, though.)

lisa’s drapey, kelly green one shoulder dress with a cream leather belt. (sorry for the blurriness, there were NO good shots of this on the ep. an injustice for such a fab outfit.)

marissa’s bcbg metallic paneled tube dress

so, last week, lacey won top honors. but she didn’t make it past the first round, the scoreboard was wiped clean, and after the second week, it’s now marissa/lisa : 1 (r.i.p. keltie), everyone else: 0, melissa: -10000 (really terrible rose ceremony dress).

bachelor fashion recap: week one

america’s favorite show is back, and this season will be the most CONTROVERSIAL. says chris harrison, because that doesn’t get old at all.

last night, we began with 30 girls. that means 30 rose ceremony dresses to analyze so here we go:

unfortunately (and not surprisingly) i wasn’t wowed by any of the girls after brad’s heart. i guess not everyone can be blessed with a closet like gia’s. however, picking the best dressed of week 1, wasn’t difficult.

congrats, lacey. love this shade of purple. especially on you. (of course, as i write this, i am referencing the bachelor bio page on abc.com because at this point, these girls are basically all the same.)

and a 3-way tie for worst dressed:

ashley h., melissa, and renee wearing, as a friend put it, “j.c. penney prom dresses.” sounds about right.

chantal came close, but to her credit, i did love that kelly green on her. unfortunately, alli had the same idea. with a MUCH better dress.a too easy game of “who wore it better?”

another unfortunate hit-and-miss example was britnee (yikes.)

this picture does not do this hideous updo justice. a promising top half of a dress, though.

yuck! you ruined it!

and we must talk about these shoes that brad claimed to love:

brad, you’re a liar. (according to the possessionista, these are d&g.)

i really have no comment on who got roses and who didn’t. (does it really matter at this point?) however, i am pretty happy that meghan, “the fashion marketer” made it through. her bio pic on the show’s website gives me hope that she may have some interesting outfits to share with us. that is, if she lasts long enough. (my guess is that she doesn’t.)

gimme that necklace.

ironically, i do not remember what she was wearing in last night’s episode. we may want to keep an eye on keltie, too. judging by her hair and her use of “bananas,” she may be a fellow rachel zoe fan.

so all in all, the score so far: lacey: 1, everyone else: 0. SO EXCITING.
