Dr Stacy Barton- Grey Fringe Cardi (3.20)

This cozy all season cardi certainly gives off a safe, comforting vibe as Miss Hope reveals her darkest anxieties. This Real Deal one is a little longer in the front than in the back, with the fringe running down the front only. It is a nice soft heather grey that can be worn with anything. I’m a little fringed out but if it is your thing here are a couple of options for you:

Alison – Silk Blouse and Yellow & Gold link Necklace (3.13)

This statuesque Princess can rock a range of outfits. And I literally mean Princess. In case you didn’t know, Bill Spencer’s secretary who joined B&B last December is actually a real life Princess with quite the pedigree. Alison is Princess Theodora of Greece & Denmark.

Her sand colored silk blouse drapes beautifully to give it an almost wrap-like effect. The cuff and shoulders share a quilted pattern into the silk, which also gives a blouson/ peasant effect to the sleeves. The neck falls into a V neck pattern ending into a teardrop. The color is….ok, I would love to see it in a vibrant shade. The necklace choice, I also find to be a curious selection to accompany the delicate detailing of the blouse. I would rather see the necklace over a tank with a navy blazer. In any case, here are some similar options to the blouse and the Real Deal necklace by J Crew:

Steffy – Long drop tusk earrings (3.12)

Super trendy and totally Steffy. Her hair is long enough again to pull up into a loose bun, showcasing the long drop of these earrings. We saw some over-sized versions of horns and shark teeth on the runways by the likes of Givenchy this season…but this ready to wear version is just enough to take a trend into real world wear-a-ability.These are made by Malibu based Heather Gardner. Her nature influenced styles can be seen on a bunch of the A-listers everywhere you turn. The black drop earrings are sold out, but are available in tortoise, below. If you love the black I’ve included the necklace version.

Steffy – Contrast Collar Blazer (3.12)

Steffy is looking very trendy in her Black & White contrast collar blazer, printed top and drop tusk earrings. The fitted black pants look great, but I am a bit surprised by the over-sized white shoulder bag. The more I think about it, the more I think I like it vs an expected over-sized contrast clutch. I wouldn’t hate seeing a gold tone clutch or pop of color. Anyhow, Steffy rarely looks bad with any combo of clothing and accessories and this look is no exception and definitely right up her alley. The blazer is the centerpiece and I absolutely love it. The Real Deal looks like a 2011 Zara blazer, (only color options available on ebay), or Ann Harvey from last year (sold out sorry). Stella McCartney really jump started this style of blazer last year, and now this spring we have seen Gucci, Helmut Lang, Balmain, who all came out with their own OMG versions. Here are some Real World versions for this year that we could consider. Zara has another version for this year that is reasonably priced.

Taylor – Camel cardigan with leather and gold clasps (3.8)

Look, I think Taylor is gorgeous. She has been one of my faves on B&B since years and years ago, but I’m not sure if this cardigan is doing anything for her. The chunkier knit, and over-sized leather fastenings and hardware on front… I don’t think do her any favors. Maybe if this was a longer slim fit, then it would work. But the box shape, mmmm, not sure. The color is great with her dark/ tan dimensional hair color though. I think the necklace choice of a chunky gold link is a perfect choice that ties in well with the over-sized features. I think this sweater may look better on Katie with a super skinny jean and platform heels. The sweater looks very, very Ralph Lauren. Here are some versions as well as her chunky necklace:

Hope – Striped Sweater (3.9)

Hope is wearing her Ernie sadness sweater today at therapy. We all have a sadness sweater don’t we? (I do, but I generally never wear it out into public). Interesting…rust and navy nautical striping with a poppy red widow’s peak crew collar. Over-sized and slouchy with her 80’s style jeans, definitely a sadness sweater. The Real Deal is by Madewell, and sorry sold out. Here are a few versions if you want to get creative with this take on the nautical look:

Liam – Black Cardigan (3.8)

No matter what your feelings are about Liam (I’m a fan), he totally deserves points today with how he handled ‘it’s not the end game’ conversation with Hope. He also deserves points for the simple crisp white shirt with the black cardigan he wore over it. He looks very handsome, and I like the departure from the leather jacket/ shirt look. Apart from button front, fitted structure and deep V it’s a bit tough to distinguish style details to be certain of the Real Deal, so here are some versions to consider. I think the All Saints one is the most stylish, but they are all nice styles:

Brooke – White Silk V Neck Tunic (3.8)

This is a great look for Brooke, she looks gorgeous. She has it tucked into some fitted pants, but it would also work un-tucked with the nice rounded hem. The dolman sleeves and loose fit are flattering for all body types, but the V neck adds a pretty touch of extra femininity. Beautifully made with the horizontal stitching on the back. You could wear any statement necklace, delicate necklace or a long necklace like Brooke is wearing here. Here is the Real Deal and some Real World versions:

Steffy – Arc necklace (3.2)

This silver arc necklace is just enough to work with the off the shoulder asymmetry of Steffy’s top. The solid arc is a little broader than most arc necklaces you see with a pretty chain covering the other two-thirds of this necklace, complete with Tiffany’s style toggle clasp. Where is the ‘Real Deal’??? Still working on finding the original, here are some options in the meantime:

Steffy – Off Shoulder Top (3.6)


Steffy wore this top 2 of 3 ways that we saw these past few episodes. She wore one shoulder off, full sleeves down, then both shoulders down and sleeves scrunched up. It is tunic length so almost mistaken as a dress given she was wearing black on black. I love the simple black on black though, it was a great sleek look. The chunky shoes and simple but edgy jewelry perfect the look (The third way of wearing this top is not wearing it off the shoulder at all, obviously)
