Dana Weiss’ Fashion Blog: Episode 3

If the Bachelor were based on inner beauty, nearly all our eligible bachelorettes would have been sent home this week.

Fortunately I’m shallow so I can see beyond the cattiness of this week’s Bachelorette antics and focus on what’s really important.

The dresses.

The bad. 

Oh Jamie. I want to like you so much. I really do. Your backstory. Your beautiful face. The fact that you were the only one who didn’t embarrass yourself and act like an extra from Girl, Interrupted before your meds were regulated.

But Jamie, this dress…Is it long? Is it short? Is it beaded? It has more personalities as Jenna Burke. This dress infuriates me almost as much as Erica’s thick-thighs/ugly face confessional.


You see, the only thing worse than Erica’s made-for-TV (at best) version of Mean Girls was her dress. In the words of my best friend and soul mate Jenna Burke:

Are. You. Kidding. Me?

Seriously. No wonder girlfriend fainted. She’d been hauling around 10 extra lbs. of gold chains all night. Look, we get it. You’re insecure about your thighs. Still, the Rose Ceremony is no time for extra cardio.

The best:

Casey. Please, I beg you. Stick around. You give me faith. And hope. You make me believe in this process. Or at least a decent final rose ceremony dress. Also, I recognize most of your labels, including my favorite dress from this week, the Naven Pink Pop Party dress. Along with being funny and knowing how to pronounce Proenza Schouler, this is one of the most important qualities to maintaining a long lasting relationship with me.

Like I said, I’m shallow. So I can see beyond Courtney “I kicked Scotch when you weren’t looking” Robertson* and her endless use of the term “winning.” to admit that I loved her dress at the rose ceremony.

Though, to be fair, it could have used another inch.

We almost got to see Whatsherbutt.

And I’m not talking about Shawntel.

  5. I agree, your posts aren’t long enough. I’d like to know WHY a dress is right or wrong,not just that you recognize the label! Help us out here.

    Also…these photos are way too blurry.

  6. If you cannot tell why Jamie, Blakely (who was not mentioned but I must point out), and Erica’s dresses were HORRIBLE there is a problem. Cheap, tacky, and unflattering are just some of the nicer words I have to describe them.

  7. Well, Elizabeth, if that’s the case then Holly Durst is on the crap list because she only wears Forever 21 cheap sheet.

  9. Seriously??? I just recall screen shots

    Comment by Cathy — January 18, 2012 @ 8:00 pm

  10. Seriously??? I just recal screenshots of really HIGH and poofy pink shoulder pads that looked out of proportion

  11. Good thing taste is subjective. I hated both Courtney’s & Casey’s dress. I didn’t like Jamie’s or Erika’s, so I agree on that. My favorites were Lindzi’s peacock dress and Kacie’s blue dress.

  12. Totally agree with you! Great fashion blog. You seem to know your stuff. I love love loved Casey S’s dress, and thought Rachel and Courtney looked great as well. Fashion done right. I would love to know what you thought of the other outfits during the episode as well!

  13. funny as always!

    Comment by sami — January 19, 2012 @ 12:33 pm

  14. Funny jokes about Erica. Let’s all just be nice! I know they were overly mean to Shawntel. I hope Shawntel finds her true love. She deserved a chance to stay on the show. Sad. :(

  15. I LOL a lot during this blog – only problem was it needed to be longer.

  16. what dress is courtney wearing in week 2′s rose ceremony?

    Comment by vanessa — January 22, 2012 @ 8:11 pm

  17. Casey’s pink dress is not bad at all. I love the color and she wears it well. She is really fashionable and knows whats the best for what occasion.
    Korean fashion
    The other girls has too revealing clothes and I’m confused if they had a wardrobe malfunction?
