The Bachelor Blog: 27 Red Dresses

The Bachelor 2017 outfits
Rachel and Nick

The Bachelor is back, and I’m late with my review already! Here are my top 5 after episode 1, along with some other random thoughts.

Rachel: Rachel reminds me so much of Andi, and Nick has always liked strong independent women, so it’s no surprise he liked Rachel because she gives off a very put together and confident attitude in the limited time she has with Nick. They had a very easygoing conversation, and her red dress didn’t get in the way of the first impression rose.

Vanessa: I really like Vanessa already. I feel like I’d be friends with her in real life. She just seems very genuine and her and Nick had a nice connection. Nick also said “She’s a keeper,” which is way more of a compliment in all honesty than saying she’s pretty or cute.

Danielle L: Danielle is someone who I’ll put as my dark horse. She’s beautiful and came off really well in the first episode.

Corinne: Corinne said about thirty things that made me cringe in the first episode. She seems like such a great villain. Olivia was always somewhat likable in Ben’s season, so it’s always nice to have a villain that just makes the show more entertaining. She’s aggressive and I’m 100 percent positive that Nick will consider the fact that he was painted a villain in his season if the other women say she’s no good.

Sarah: Sarah was the girl that ran up in sneakers as the “runner up” and although most of the intro corniness makes me want to barf, I thought it was pretty cute. She also wore that really pretty lavender gown.

Other Thoughts

  • I don’t know what’s worse, that the shark wore her costume all night or that she’s 23 years old going on the show.
  • Haley might be better off with Daniel/
  • The girls needed to chill with the red dresses. It’s the Bachelor, not prom.
  • OK, regarding the Liz thing. It seemed super awkward. When she explained herself, it really didn’t make sense when they were talking, but maybe that was just nerves. The whole exchange between them seemed a bit forced. I will defend her for a second though because I could completely understand the idea that she thought it would be exciting to see him again. Poor girl is getting beat up on Twitter, but I get where she’s coming from.
  • How the heck did Olivia not make it? She came in with the fur coat and was so charming.
  • Jimmy Kimmel had both Andi, Kaitlyn and Nick on the show, and man was it awkward!
  • It looks like a drama packed season, and I’m stoked.
  • I’m curious to know what others think of the whole Liz thing so comment below!

BIP Review: The Silver Fox, Papa Bear & Lamp Guy

Ashley Iaconetti's Floral High Waist Bikini on Bachelor in Paradise
Pradux

Caila/ Jared/ Ashley:  Okay, so I might have an unpopular opinion, but I don’t blame Ashley for her actions entirely. Does she sometimes go overboard? Of course. But Caila and Ashley were friends prior to the show, and Caila specifically said she was never going to go for him. If I vented to my friend about trying to get over someone, I would be so upset if that friend started dating him. Wells needs to come already because 1) He’s awesome, and 2) Ashley needs to move on.

Izzy and Vinny: I really loved these two. I was rooting for them to last. I really loved Vinny on BIP, and he honestly just seems like a normal dude. Izzy can’t help how she feels, but she definitely could’ve handled it better. But at the same time, if she really loved Vinny, she wouldn’t be feeling doubtful. I like them both and wish nothing but the best for these two.

Lace and Grant: Lace seems like a handful after this episode. Bless Grant for the upcoming episodes.

Jen and Nick: Jen and Nick are such a cool couple. I love Nick’s honesty throughout this season and appreciate that Jen confronted him about being scared again. I’m rooting for you Nick!

Carly and Evan: Carly and Evan are easily the most entertaining couple simply because of their personalities. Between Evan’s constant excitement and Carly’s hilarious commentary, I think they’re the most real couple on paradise right now.

Ryan and Haley: The Silver Fox nabbed Haley and they had such a cute little date.

Emily and Carl: Emily and Carl were literally having the time of their lives on the date they went on. It was so funny to Emily all giddy.

Amanda and Josh: I like that these two comforted Izzy after the Vinny situation.

Lamp Guy: Who knew lamp guy was going to have such an impact just by being there?

BIP Review: Three Tears Too Many

Ashley / Emily/ Jared/ Caila: So Jared broke it off with Emily for Caila. He seemed really into Caila. He seemed so somber even with Emily, but with Caila, his body language is so different. Then, Ashley came to paradise, and oh my god. I love Ashley because she’s so honest and real, but like the conversation with Jared at the rose ceremony was so intense. He’s so not into her, but she’s not ready to move on. I love the conversation with Nick and Ashley. It’s the kind of conversation for Jared to have with Ashley.

Daniel and Sarah: Daniel and Sarah have been super cute, and based on their social media, they still hang out so maybe they just have a good friendship now? I really like these two, but importantly, I really love Daniel. I’ve been defending his weirdness in Jojo’s season too. He’s just so funny. If you watched the aftershow, he’s hilarious but also endearing. When the hosts ask why he left Ashley during their date, he just plainly says he was hungry.

Izzy and Vinny: Izzy and Vinny are very sweet together and remained pretty strong throughout the episode. There seems like trouble in paradise next week though.

Grant and Lace: These two are also super rock solid. I love how Lace was not having it about having water poured on her. Honestly, the whole date seemed really fun.

Nick and Jen: I’ve always liked Nick’s honesty, and he gives great advice to all his friends in both episodes. I love how he told Emily it’s okay to be upset, and that Ashley is just infatuated with him. Haley giving him a rose was another great friendship moment. He really made a comeback, and then Jen comes to paradise. These two are great. I’m really happy for Nick.

Evan and Carly: Carly’s commentary is the best. With her commentating every single occurrence with Evan, it makes sense why she ended up liking him in the end. They were both so funny and I was actually dying when Carly thought Evan made this all up to impress her.

Amanda and Josh: Poor Amanda. She and Josh have had quite the interesting edit. I mean it’a literally just pizza and making out. Andi’s book is the real winner here, as she’s getting some free publicity. They might as well plant a spare copy on Amanda’s pillow.

Now to the fashion from the episode: http://www.pradux.com/tv/bachelor-in-paradise

Ashley Iaconetti's Feather Print Maxi Dress on Bachelor in Paradise
I loved these outfits in this scene. Ashley’s dress was so pretty, and Haley’s looks great with her updo. I also liked Emily’s off the shoulder dress. The prints were all pretty, but Ashley’s feather printed dress was stunning.
Jen Saviano's Floral Romper on Bachelor in Paradise
Jen walked in looking so pretty in this romantic one piece. The floral print and ruffles worked really well with her loose waves.
Amanda Stanton's White Lace Off-The-Shoulder Dress on Bachelor in Paradise
I really liked this dress from Haley. The color is super pretty and the strategic cutouts work well with her shape. The twins always kill it with their style. Amanda also wore this off the shoulder dress, and it was cute.
Lace Morris' White Lace Bustier Dress on Bachelor in Paradise
I really liked how Lace wore this dress so effortlessly with simply blue earrings and a fishtail. It worked really well, and it actually stood out from the off the shoulder dresses and maxi dresses.
Emily Ferguson's Blue Lace Asymmetric Dress on Bachelor in Paradise
This was super pretty. I love the asymmetrical cut of the dress, and I’m a huge fan of the color. 
Sarah Herron's Leaf Print Strapless Romper on Bachelor in Paradise
Sarah is the real MVP when it comes to fashion because this romper was only $14.99 from H&M. Compared to the other 100-200 dollar dresses and rompers, this was a great steal.

BIP Episode 2 Review and Fashion

Here’s my review on each of the pairings on the show so far.

Amanda/Josh/Nick/Leah: Amanda and Nick had a great date that completely overshadowed Leah and Nick’s date. I think it was pretty stand up for Nick to tell Leah she wasn’t getting a rose from him. Then Josh walks in and he was so obnoxious and self-righteous. If he’s trying to prove that Andi’s book was all filled with lies, it’s not working. I love Amanda, but she ghosted Nick, which is never cool to do. Honestly, this whole plot made me want to read Andi’s book. XD

Daniel and Sarah: Okay, so Sarah and Daniel are actually kind of cute, right? What he said to her at the rose ceremony was so sweet, and I loved the little date he set up for her. Daniel is hilarious and ridiculous, so it leaves Sarah intrigued to explore that relationship rather than Christian.

Evan and Carly: Poor Carly. Evan is the only person who in interested in her, and she seems interested until they kiss. Her commentary is super funny, but I do feel bad for Evan. When I don’t feel bad for Evan is when he goes for Amanda. She’s sucking face with Josh, and he thinks he’s going to swoop in.

Emily and Jared: I hate how the show treats the twins. I’m going to keep mentioning it because it drives me nuts that the show keeps objectifying those two. They’re both individuals and they have their own personality. I love Emily. She’s got a great personality and she’s hilarious.  The scene where they kiss was cute, and I really liked drunk Emily too.

Izzy and Vinny: Not sure what happened with the Sarah stuff, but these two were rock solid in the last episode.

Lace and Grant: I like how Grant went over and told Lace he’d give her a chance after the Chad debacle. They also seem rock solid.

Haley and Brandon: Brandon seems so boring, and Carly seemed to be interested, but he opts for Haley. Emily and Haley switch places, and it makes for great television.

Fashion: So I found this website called Pradux, and it had tons of fashion from BIP’s last episode. I loved a lot of the dresses from the girls, so here are my thoughts. Here’s the link to tons of more fashion: http://www.pradux.com/tv/bachelor-in-paradise

Sarah Herron's Geometric Dress on Bachelor in Paradise
I love Sarah’s dress here. She wore a lot of pastels and I loved how pretty this long dress was.
Haley Ferguson's Green Ruffle Romper on Bachelor in Paradise
I love this romper. It’s super romantic and pretty. I also love the green color on Haley.
Amanda Stanton's Tassel Bikini Top on Bachelor in Paradise
This bathing suit top is really pretty. The tassels are super boho, along with the print. It’s also cute and works as a top to wear throughout the day.
Emily Ferguson's Leaf Print Romper on Bachelor in Paradise
This romper is super easygoing, and I love the leaf print on this piece.
