Dana Weiss’ Fashion Blog: Episode 6

This week’s Bachelor Panama recap is like Ben and Jamie’s first kiss:

I’m going to jump right in and it’s bound to be uncomfortable for us all.

Although I generally focus on the rose ceremony fashion, I need to spend a little time on Kacie B. this week to reassure her that she’s still my favorite.

Last week Kacie revealed that she has naturally, really, really curly hair (to wit, I spend hours each week with my hairdryer and round brush, so I empathize) and this week she revealed that she struggled with an eating disorder.

If you’ve read Possessionista for any length of time, you know that I have an unnerving obsession with eating disorders and the Lifetime movies they’ve inspired, so I feel like these two revelations really brought Kacie and my (see “my” not “I’s”) relationship to a whole new level.

 Also a lot of you really liked Kacie’s neon and tribal print bikini from Target.

Also, worth mentioning is Casey Shteamer who didn’t even make it to the rose ceremony. I knew the moment I laid eyes on her chambray onesie that she was not there for the right reasons.

 Because Casey wasn’t there for Ben. She was there for me. Don’t believe me? Check out any male within 6 degrees of the Bachelor family and they all had three words for Casey’s denim romper: W. T. F.

 But for us girls, it was a different story. In fact more than a few of my readers shed an (ugly) tear when they learned that Casey’s Urban Outfitters denim romper was out of stock.

Casey, you may not have found love on the Bachelor, but more than a few of us found love in your wardrobe. And anyway, you couldn’t get married in a denim romper. So, everything happens for a reason. Stay open. And call me if you’re ever in Chicago so we can go shopping.

As far as the rose ceremony goes – wait for it – I don’t think anyone was too offensive this week. I do, however, worry about how these one shoulder dresses are going to affect the future posture of the current Bachelorettes.
