PLL Fashion 7×03

So here are some of favorite looks from the episode. What a crazy episode! You can check out my review here: https://mytrendingstories.com/article/pretty-little-liars-review-season-7-claims-its-first-victim/

Enjoy the fashion!

I’m loving this Spencer’s trench coat. I like this mustard color and the way it all billows. I’m also loving that the liars are wearing a lot of Zara this season.

Zara ‘Trench Coat with Horn Button’ – $79.99

This is a classic Emily jacket. It’s olive, has patchwork and super casual  I love this color on Emily and thought this was a cute, but still appropriate for Emily’s age.

Zara ‘Patch Overshirt’ – no longer available

I liked how Spencer wore this with a trench. At first, I thought she was wearing a turtleneck, but I like this high neck peplum top for her. For some reason, I love Troian in all these high neck tops. It’s flattering on her.

Elizabeth and James ‘Perth Peplum Top’ – $119.99

Hanna’s kimono was my favorite piece. I loved the black tank top and burgundy skinny keans that she wore. This denim kimnon is very unique, and I love that Hanna wore it very casually.

The Bachelorette: Chad Overload

I’ve been in London for the past week so here is my recap for the past three episodes.

 

Jojo and James

1-on-1 Dates: 

Derrick: Derrick was the first one on one of the season, and he had a great showing. I liked that he made an effort to be decisive with each choice he was given. I had no idea there was even a Derrick after the first episode but he made a great first impression.

James Taylor:  James is awesome. I love how genuine and sweet he is with Jojo. I loved how outgoing and grateful he seemed during their entire date. The more he is shown the more I like him. That being said, I don’t think Jojo is going to end up with him. I would love it if she did pick him, but I don’t see that happening.

Luke: Luke is someone Jojo really likes just based on body language for the first couple of episodes. When they finally sat down for their date, Luke was so open and honest with Jojo. I really like them together, and see him going very far.

Chase: Chase is also another stand up guy. I loved the mini snow date at the cocktail party and when they went on their date, I really warmed up to him.

Power Rankings:

  1. Jordan– OK, it’s so obvious Jojo loves this guy. She’s already pressuring him for all this validation. She needs it from him because she just loves him. Kaitlyn did it with Shawn and Andi did it with Josh. Now Jojo is doing it.
  2. Luke
  3. Chase
  4. James T.
  5. Robby– Robby is someone I didn’t really think about until last night’s episode where Jojo said she felt comfortable with him even though she didn’t really know him.

Chad

Chad gets his own little section on my blog because he was just that much of a character. In episode 2, I actually didn’t mind him. He was pretty hilarious with the West Side Story comment and his commentary during the rose ceremony is gold.

He was also kind of right about saying he’s not going to say he’s falling for Jojo, when he doesn’t even know her. Did he go about it in the right way? Not really, but from Jojo’s perspective, she sees this guy is is being polarizing with how honest he is and she is intrigued by it. Additionally, when he does say he had feelings for Jojo, it’s more believable.

Now in episode 3 and 4, I can’t defend him…at all. The violent threats were absolutely ridiculous.  In what world is violent threats going to look good on television? His self-awareness flew out the window when he grabbed Evan’s shirt. Now I do think the constant pestering from Alex and Evan was a bit too much, but to say he’s going to beat up people is absurd. Now we wait for the epic conclusion of the Chad Saga.

Other Thoughts:

  • Chad’s eating habits at the cocktail party is literally me at any function.
  • The Jojo song had me dying. The bromance is real in the house.
  • That being said, who’s going to be the next villain? The house really bonded with their anti-Chad pact, but he’s gone now.
  • Chad explaining his protein shake analogy was really great.
  • I’m going to miss Chad. 😦
  • Wells was adorable. I think he’s a lock for Bachelor in Paradise. James too.
  • I think if Chase doesn’t win, he’d be a solid Bachelor.
  • Jojo is killing it when it comes to the fashion on the show.

Project Runway Review: Episode 3

Last night’s episode was the group challenge where designers took inspiration from countries and a cruise. And again, I wasn’t on the same page as the judges. Oh, and I miss David, and wish he was still on the show. 😦

blake and kelly greek isles

Blake and Kelly: This was by far my favorite, and I honestly thought this should’ve won. How were they safe? This screams Greece to me with the white and blue tones. I also like how the fabric peeked at the sides, and when the model turned around, the print was more prominent. I think the judges are crazy for putting this as a safe look, when it was the most chic to me.

swapnil and laurie india

Swapnil and Laurie: These two made a great team with Swapnil focusing on the sari, and Laurie making it modern and fresh. The crop top and high-waisted pant look was great on its own, but I also loved the mix of patterns. If Blake and Kelly couldn’t win, I would’ve had Swapnil and Laurie for the win.

Ashley and candice venice

Candice and Ashley: I’m really surprised that this look won. To me, the main problem is that this doesn’t say Venice to me. I like the mix of the floral print and the stripes, but the pants threw me off. They were way too short and I wasn’t crazy about the proportions. It’s a strong look, but I think it needs to be edited a little bit.

jake and lindsey hong kong

Lindsey and Jake: These two made me uncomfortable with how poorly they worked together. On one hand, Lindsey sometimes undermines Jake, especially with Tim’s critique ( I like you Jake, but I would sooner die) . On the other hand, Jake was making Lindsey do everything. They were in the top. He didn’t have to be so passive aggressive on the runway. Anyway, I liked the red dress, but I wasn’t crazy about the green vest.

amanda and gabby

Amanda and Gabrielle: This wasn’t that great, but it wasn’t terrible. The proportions are off, and this doesn’t read South of France to me at all. I did like the lining of the top though.

Joseph and merline st.peterburg

Joseph and Merline: If I were Merline, I would’ve pulled a Jake and said this was all Joe’s look. He completely shut her down from expressing her point of view, which is much more fun and fresh than Joe’s aesthetic. The little bib part was made of a nice fabric, but like I said, it looked like a weird bib. This was too old, and I would’ve liked to see Merline put some of her styling into this. She’s been on the top, while Joe made that really bad paper skirt last week. I’m not sure why he was so cocky in this episode.

hanmiao and edmond caribbean

Edmond and Hanmiao: Wow, this was so bad. I laughed when Gabrielle said it was good, and Hanmiao said “Really?” I can’t believe they used their differences in design aesthetics as an excuse. They could’ve split up the look. She could’ve made a structured crop top, and Edmond could’ve made a proper flowy skirt, and it would’ve worked for the challenge. I felt so bad for Edmond because Hanmiao couldn’t voice any of her opinions, and then she went crazy and sewed the model into the bathing suit.
