Dana Weiss’ Fashion Blog: Episode 8

How is this possible?
You bring a man home. You introduce him to your mother. Your father. Your marching band. Your spray on salad dressing.
And he turns around, marries your arch nemesis in a faux rustic wedding using stolen Sex and the City vows before wearing his newly purchased cowboy boots to kick you to the curb.
Which just goes to show you,  if you want to impress a guy, you should really serve ranch dressing.
And speaking of impressed, I have to admit I was impressed with Courtney’s fashion this week, if not her half-assed self awareness that she might not have been as nice as she previously believed to Ben’s other girlfriends.

Courtney is in it to win it. She staged a rustic wedding (and even upgraded to the fancy chairs.) Decked in an ethereal tiered chiffon dress and Frye boots, Courtney nailed the whole breezy bride vibe. But it was Courtney’s beaded Alice and Olivia beaded tunic at the rose ceremony that stole my heart.

Kacie ended her “winning” streak (say that in your best Courtney impression) opting for an understated dip-dye bubble hem tank dress by White House/Black Market.

I couldn’t help but wonder whether Kacie’s fate would have ended differently if she’d just stuck to wearing BCBG. Clearly Ben’s not a fan of the middle aged, mall store either, sending Kacie to cry into her spray on salad dressing.

No, I can’t get over the salad dressing.

Faring better? Lindzi who. Lindzi took a page from Kacie’s fashion wardrobe in BCBG’s little sister brand BCBGeneration, earning her the rose.

Since we’re at the end, I’m straying from my usual focus of the rose ceremony, particularly because I thought everyone looked lovely this week to point out that while it’s great to mix and match patterns, genres, styles and even price points I think it’s inappropriate and frankly irresponsible to mix sequins with a cowboy hat.
My pick for worst dressed this week was Nicki’s cowboy glam outfit from the Vicky Gunvelson collection.
