The hometown dates turned out to be good for Emily Maynard.

Not only did we get to see some of the best clothing all season, but Emily also learned that no matter who she ends up with, her new family will be able to recommend a colorist familiar with her own shade of platinum.

One of the things I think people initially responded to about Emily Maynard’s fashion was her ability to mix high and low. All season long we’ve seen some really expensive (if totally tacky) fashion, but this week we got to see some of what first endeared Emily to us.
My favorite look of the night was Emily’s tribal inspired sweater coat by Cynthia Vincent and her skull tee by TopShop. As someone who travels quite a bit, I’m always looking for comfortably cute outfits that can withstand a long plane ride, and this outfit was a slam-dunk. Props to Emily for not wearing a velour track suit.
If you’ve read my blog Possessionista for any time then you know I’m from Chicago, so I knew Emily was in town this spring on a particularly cold and rainy weekend. Emily wore a pair of retro Dittos jeans, which I loved. I know skinny jeans are everywhere but I am obsessed with bell bottoms and colored denim, so this was like the Brangelina of denim to me.
I also know that while in Chicago for her date with Chris, Emily hit up All Saints. Cut to her date with Jef where she was wearing a darling accordion sundress by…wait for it…All Saints. Guess we know where Emily’s head was during that date. Emily added an All Saints belt, which cinched the otherwise shapeless dress and finished the look off with her beloved Frye boots. This outfit was so breezy and fresh, though I wish she’d worn a strapless bra. The straps were kind of distracting to me.
And speaking of distracting bra straps…
For her date with Arie Emily wore a dress by T by Alexander Wang, but I was more focused on her statement necklace by The Woods, an Aspen based fine jeweler who is responsible for most of Emily’s baubles this season. The necklace was so crazy amazing (but I’m sure just as crazy expensive.)
And lastly she hit Sean’s hometown with almost as much of an impact as Sean’s practical joke. But the joke was on Sean because Emily’s print maxi by Rory Beca was the thing that had everyone talking. I’m pretty sure I saw Kensington trying to steal the dress and hide it in that incredible playhouse. Am I right?
Four great dates and four equally great looks. I suspect Emily may have been dressing herself on these dates – and they seemed casual, effortless and I love how Emily can easily transition from preppy to sophisticated to edgy to girlish with ease. She doesn’t pigeonhole herself to one style.
Except when it comes to formalwear where she only has one look. And that’s “when Bedazzlers attack.”


Emily has said she’s a big fan of Carrie Underwood style (who isn’t?) and this is another dress that Carrie has worn before. The strapless, embellished gown by Randi Rahm wasn’t my least favorite, but I keep waiting for a wow moment in the rose ceremony and it’s taking longer than it took Doug to kiss Emily.
And just as uncomfortable.
What were your favorite looks from this week’s Bachelorette? Do you think Emily finally got it right or did you hate this week’s looks? Let me know in the comments below. And for more information about what Emily Maynard is wearing on the Bachelorette visit my fashion blog Possessionista.com



  1. I loved her style for hometowns. The halter maxi was my favorite look.

  2. I loved Emily’s outfit from Jef’s hometown date…and loved how he showed that he might have been a little bit nervous by folding the hem of her dress up while they were chatting. So cute! It is amazing to me how she seems to dress to “match” the particular guys personality?

  3. Stay away from commenting in any capacity about someone’s innocent mother and stick to Emily’s outfits. I hope your kids screen shot your distracting looks and blog about it in 10 years.

  4. Your not innocent when you go on national television and speak dutch in front of your guest. If you don’t want to face criticism don’t go on television.

    Comment by Julie — July 5, 2012 @ 12:41 pm

  5. Right – two sentences of Dutch means they were speaking Dutch – - the whole time – all day – all night – like they were time warped back to Holland – and until they were all blue in the face, and Emily had to run outside and bury her head in the sand. And, they only served Dutch food and Dutch drinks, and they were all wearing wooden shoes that you couldn’t see. And then, little Dutch people came out of the closet and were making fun of Emily in Dutch. Her bra straps were probably Dutch made too. Her Dutch accent alone just makes it so wrong because it’s so.. “Dutch”. The whole evening was ruined. Emily was sobbing and couldn’t handle herself. She had to be consoled by one of the American camera men who told her they would never let something like that happen again. Don’t cry Emily. Those people were awful to you. Let’s get out of here. But you’ll have to run because their chasing us. Do your best in those perfect, red, FRENCH, $2,000 Louboutin heels…

  7. “but Emily also learned that no matter who she ends up with, her new family will be able to recommend a colorist familiar with her own shade of platinum.” -HAHAHAHA! I literally just laughed so loud my roomate asked me what was so funny from the other side of the wall lolololol

  8. Oh, mom. Now you’re just some crazy that I wish would go.

    Comment by spotrox — July 5, 2012 @ 5:01 pm

  9. What if ‘mom’ is really Arie’s mom? Bahahahaha.

    Comment by Jen — July 5, 2012 @ 5:58 pm

  10. Jen, I was thinking (read: hoping) so but I’m pretty sure Arie’s mom is busy whittling her wooden shoes. And also, I hope my kids take pictures of my distracting fashion and blog about it. It would be cheaper than therapy, that’s for sure.

  11. Looks like “Mom” is taking over for the usual crazy girl, Allissa.

    Comment by Kaitlyn — July 5, 2012 @ 6:10 pm

  12. I’m obsessed with the blue earrings Emily wore a couple of weeks ago. It was the episode where she dropped one guy off and then Sean went running through the streets yelling for her. Any idea whose earrings those are? Love love love them!

    Comment by Kylie — July 5, 2012 @ 6:27 pm

  13. Thanks for helping us keep track of Emily’s fashion. I agree this was her best week yet. I was excited when she didn’t look like she was trying out for “Stars On Ice” during this week’s rose ceremony, but the hair was a bad call. OK, off to find the skull t-shirt on TopShop…

    Comment by TwoWineyBitches — July 5, 2012 @ 7:22 pm

  14. Do you think she wore the dove earrings in the hometown date with Jef to show her Christianity? Just a thought…

    Comment by Barbara — July 6, 2012 @ 6:59 am

  15. I really enjoyed your blog (loved the platinum comment). I loved her all saints dress especially that we wore on her date with Jef. I do have one comment, those aren’t bra straps that are showing, I heard it is a cosabella slip that is meant to show. If you look closely, there is a lace trim across the top. It’s meant to be flirty yet sexy.
    In any case I also agree with you regarding the rose ceremony gowns.I think she looks good in anything but I would love to see her in a younger less bedazzled dress. Once in a while sequins are fun but it seems like a theme throughout all rose ceremonies. I think as she heads off to Curacao, she will probably dress a bit more simply at the rose ceremonies.

  16. If you are really from Chicago, maybe you can teach Ashley Spivey that we don’t use the word Pollack in this city. Don’t be a wimp. You know we don’t talk like that about those folks, so speak up. Be a role model for your kids.

    Comment by Chicago 4ever — July 6, 2012 @ 9:15 pm

  17. Ok I don’t mean to be mean but why is Emily raiding Carrie’s closet of sorts? First the white sequined gown and now the blue number? Just asking. I am glad the sequins are not so prominent in her latest RC gown. It gets tiring after a while. Absolutely love the dress she wore for Sean’s hometown date. That is my fave so far.

    Comment by Maria C — July 7, 2012 @ 12:08 pm

  18. Kylie, I think the blue earrings you’re referring to were by Micah yancey for 81 poppies. They’re on my blog on Possessionista.com

  19. So glad there’s no racism on this blog. Thank you.

  20. Bystanders are accomplices when they pretend to look the other way. Sad when others have ancestors who went through a lot.

    Comment by Don't be a wimp — July 8, 2012 @ 3:18 pm

  21. Ashley still has her anti-Polish racist comments up on her blog. She says she apologized on twitter. Where? Where’s that apology? And if she’s sorry then why are her Polish slams still posted up on the blog? She is a racist AND a liar. Wow.

  22. Love necklace Emily wore tonight at rose ceremony.
    Where & who is it by?

    Comment by Holly — July 9, 2012 @ 6:51 pm

  23. The white/beige necklace looks like a local jewelry designer from Curaçao -Bijoux for you – my sister-in-law introduced me to on a trip there. I have several similar pieces. The designer is fabulous and makes custom pieces!!

  24. Spivey is a scumbag coward. She took down her comments section instead of doing the right thing – apologize.

    Comment by Cinch It — July 10, 2012 @ 7:51 am

  25. https://www.facebook.com/thewoodsfinejewelry That’s who apparently did the necklace for last night’s rose ceremony

    Comment by Carla — July 10, 2012 @ 8:24 am

  26. I was wondering you could find out where Emily go the earrings that she wore on the hometwon date with Jef. They were birds. Or even who they are made buy so I could possibly track them down. Thanks :)

  27. What style of Frye boots did Emily wear on her hometown date with Jeff?
