Every relationship has its ups and downs. And though my unconditional love of Emily Maynard never wavers, I cannot be as forgiving of this week’s Bachelorette fashion.

You know what I’m talking about right? The butterfly dress? It was like Emily borrowed this eyesore from the Teresa Guidice collection. (You can practically see her contemplating flipping over the table in this picture, right?)


Emily has made no secret of the fact that she wants to have more babies, but something tells me bedazzling your ovaries isn’t the best way to convince your suitor to be your partner in babymaking.

This dress might go down in history as my single least favorite Bachelorette fashion item.


My elementary school principal used to say, if you don’t have anything nice to say, don’t say anything at all. And I do have some nice things to say about Emily’s fashion this week. One of my favorite pieces was this tie-dye Cynthia Vincent maxi dress. You can’t tell in this picture, but the leather detailing at the straps makes this dress more sophisticated than just another tie dye maxi dress.

Nevermind sequined embelished holometabolous insects. (I googled that.)


One of the most coveted items of the night was Emily’s beaded turquoise top from her two-on-one cave date. The beaded top is by Gryphon, and is probably not what you’d typically think to wear spelunking. Emily paired (okay, her stylist paired) the top with a pair of 7 For All Mankind white jeans and a Nikki Rich leather jacket.
I’ve heard of glamping, but now I’ve got to think of a way to Brangelina
glamorous spelunking. Glunking? Chiclunking? I’ll keep working on it.

Oh, before I forget, we only saw it for a second, but Emily wore this fashionABLE scarf on the boat for her two-on-one date. It’s not the first time we’ve seen Emily in fashionABLE. At the risk of sounding like an infomercial, I just wanted to give fashionABLE a quick plug because they’re an incredible organization that takes at-risk women in Ethiopia, rehabilitates them and teaches them to make scarves to support themselves. All the profits go back into rehabilitating and training women in Ethiopia. Check them out for more information (or just because you like the scarves.)

They say all good things come to an end and never has this been truer than of Emily’s American Girl inspired hair extensions at this week’s rose ceremony. Though her Pamella Roland one shoulder jumpsuit and The Woods layered pearl necklaces were exquisite (yes, I loved the necklaces) I could not wrap my head around that phony-tail which was just as blunt as Ryan.

And nearly as big a turnoff.
