It’s time for this week’s Emily Maynard fashion scrapbook
where I pay tribute to some of Emily’s best and worst moments in fashion, and


We began the week with a date atop a building that Emily and
Chris had to scale to reach their dinner. Talk about “sing for your supper.”
Emily wore a distressed motorcycle tee from Urban Outfitters that was just long
enough to hid the fact that she was wearing adult diapers – or maybe that’s me
projecting because if someone made me climb a building, I’d probably crap my
overpriced leggings too.

Then it was onto the group date, where we saw something
rarer than a unicorn: Emily Maynard in flats. I loved her striped Joie top and
distressed Wildfox shorts, though not necessarily together. But considering
that half the time I look like a homeless person when I hit the park I’ll give
Emiy some slack. Which is more than I can say for her friends and their
interrogation of Emily’s guys. While Emily pushed little Ricki on the swings
(or whatevs) Emily’s friends spent their park time judging books by their

And by books I mean Allessandro the Gypsy King. And by
covers I mean his predilection to date his relatives.



The last date to the episode took Emily to the adventurous
and exotic Dollywood, which is an amusement park specifically designed to
accommodate implants on their roller coasters. Emily wore a pair of Frye boots
that we’ll be seeing for several more episodes.



Emily’s finale dress was by Randi Rahm (who dressed Ashley
Hebert for most of her season.) The gold body skimming gown was super sexy but
what I couldn’t get over were the boots. I’m sure there was a perfectly good
reason for those black boots  like she didn’t want to ruin a perfectly lovely pair of shoes as she waded through the carcasses of the bachelors she let go before their time this week.

And although this scrapbook is for Emily, I would be remiss
if I didn’t take a moment to reflect on the short time we had with MC Stevie.
We’ll never forget his green shirt. His pageboy hat. And the way he could
Dougie better than anyone.

Including Doug himself.

Godspeed Stevie. May you always have someone to Champagne Snowball with you.

See you next week.

  1. Emily explains the boots on her blog with People.

    “The rose ceremony was crazy, to say the least! Alessandro’s comments definitely threw me for a loop, but that wasn’t even the craziest thing he said. What you all didn’t get to see is that he thinks of himself as a “Vampire Detector” and let me know that not only was there a vampire in the house, but he also had me join him in the woods, which explains my combat boots as I was walking him out.

    When he took me out to his special place in the woods, I saw that he had hung crosses from every limb on every tree and in that moment I knew we were living on completely different planets. I do appreciate Alessandro’s honesty, but maybe he should try to keep a house plant alive before we test his skills out on my daughter!”

    Love your blog as usual! Thanks!

  2. I think Shelly the ostrich egg deserves a mention too. Glad the boys paid her a tribute after the smash

  3. I didn’t really care for any of the outfits she wore this week. Why isn’t she turning it out like she did on The Bachelor? I’ll forgive her…it’s only the 3rd week.

  4. Liah, she “turned it out” that season by hanging out at Forever 21, the hotspot in Charlotte – at least according to Possessionista as I recall, right, Dana?

    Once again, all her clothes look bad except the gold dress. Her shorts are always too short. Her Ts are baggy and have nothing to do with the bottoms. I can’t believe they didn’t have a stylist to help her.

    And please get us out of this horrible boring city full of mommies.

  5. I actually really liked all of her outfits. Agreed that I probably wouldn’t have paired the bright blue shorts with the striped green top, but I did like that if she’s wearing short shorts, she balances it out with a looser or long-sleeved top. I think the short shorts are fine as long as she doesn’t let the top hang all out at the same time.

    I’m two years younger than Emily and always have a hard time believing that we’re close in age. She just usually looks so much older, so it’s refreshing to me to see her dressed more casually and look closer to her age. The gold dress wasn’t super flattering, but they’ll have to try a lot harder to actually make her ever look bad.

  6. Does anyone even bother to format these articles correctly? Not only is the writing horrible, but it just looks bad. This is an “official” blog? Time to look for writers elsewhere guys.

    Also, how many more links to her personal site could she have possibly shoved in? “Emily Maynard”, “Fashion Blog”, and “Bachelorette Fashion”. Insert eye roll here.

  8. First of all I would like to say wonderful blog! I had a quick question in which I’d like to ask if you do not mind.
    I was curious to find out how you center yourself and clear your
    mind before writing. I have had difficulty clearing my thoughts in getting my thoughts out.
    I do take pleasure in writing however it just seems like the
    first 10 to 15 minutes are usually wasted simply just trying to figure out how to begin.

    Any suggestions or hints? Kudos!
