Wardrobe Wednesdays: Meghan Markle @ 2017 Invictus Games

Meghan Markle fashion 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony

Looks like Meghan Markle isn’t only super stylish on screen as Rachel Zane in USA’s Suits.

The actress made her first appearance with boyfriend Prince Harry in Toronto on Saturday during the 2017 Invictus Games opening ceremony wearing head-to-toe burgundy.

She paired a pleated chiffon dress with a leather jacket and a suede clutch bag, all in a similar shade of burgundy. It’s so reminiscent of Pantone’s 2016 Color of the Year Marsala.

I would be so afraid to wear one color throughout, but Meghan Markle is definitely working this!

The original dress is sold out (no surprise there), but see below for the original jacket, marked by *, and some similar items to copy this look.

Fan Art Fridays: Jessica Biel

I’m really loving Jessica Biel in the new USA series The Sinner. I’ve been a fan of hers since ages ago when she was in 7th Heaven, I think she’s perfect for the role of Cora Tannetti.

This week’s episode really stirred me up, so I thought it would be fitting to feature some fan art of Jessica Biel for this week’s Fan Art Fridays.

Enjoy this amazing sketch of Jessica Biel I found by Justin Maas (@maas.art) over on Instagram. I can’t get over that look in her eye in this sketch! It’s like one of those “maybe I’m hiding something” kind of looks, you know what I mean?

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Jessica Pearson in ‘Suits’ Episode “Trust”

Jessica Pearson, Suits Episode -Trust-

Jessica Pearson brought on the ruffles in last week’s episode of Suits on USA.

I love how Jessica (played by Gina Torres) paired this sophisticated white ruffled collar vest with a simple black pencil skirt in the episode “Trust”. The outfit just screams “LADY BOSS”!

As you might have guessed, Jessica’s style doesn’t come cheap. The top costs over $1,000. Nope. Clearing the crud out of your eyes will not take any zeros off that number.

See below for the original vest (marked with *) and a few alternative pieces to help you Lady Bosses out there copy this look! Be sure to catch Suits tonight as well on USA at 9pm.

Top:

1. Orchard Mile, $1,156.00*

2. Nordstrom, $1,035.00

Skirt:

3. H&M, $12.99

4. ASOS, $16.50

Fan Art Fridays: Mike Ross from ‘Suits’

After watching the heart-wrenching season 5 finale of USA’s Suits this week, I just had to dedicate this week’s Fan Art Fridays to Mike Ross.

Those of you that saw the episode, titled “Faith,” will understand.

I think this pencil crayon drawing by The Soulful Artist on Tumblr does Mike Ross justice.

Episode Review: Series Premiere of USA’s ‘Rush’

Rush | USA Network

This weekend, I finally got around to watching the new medical drama on USA called Rush.

I was really looking forward to watching it since seeing the previews all month. I was especially excited because Sarah Habel, the girl who played Daphne in MTV‘s Underemployed is Eve in this show, and if you’ve read my latest Buzzfeed post, you’ll know that I miss seeing her on MTV very terribly.

So the big deal about this show is the fact that Dr. Will Rush isn’t your typical doctor. Sure, he went to Harvard, graduated top of his class, and makes some serious dough as a private doctor, but he’s got his flaws.

We’re talking smoking weed in the bathroom at his about 8-year-old godson’s birthday party flaws. And snorting cocaine with a woman that he’d soon have to admit to the emergency room in the wee hours of the night flaws. “A club called ‘Emergency’,” to be more specific.

His romantic life’s a mess, and his patients? They’re not really the kind of people you’d want to run into at the grocery store.

My favorite scenes of the pilot episode are the parts where a patient calls with a broken cock and when Rush decides to give the girlfriend of one of his patients a taste of his own medicine.

And I don’t mean that in the doctoral way AT ALL.

I’ll admit that some of the scenes are a bit gory, like the spleen removal towards the end, but it’s bearable.

I loved the soundtrack for this episode, which included “Fifteen” by Goldroom ft. Chela and “All Eyes on You” by St. Lucia. I hope they keep it up with the good music!

I’m looking forward to next weeks episode.

Catch the pilot on USA‘s site, and watch this drool-worthy interview with the man that plays Dr. Rush, Welsh actor Tom Ellis. Love that accent, man! Gah!

Don’t forget to watch next week’s episode on Thursday night at 9/8c on USA!

Songs to Celebrate Independence Day

fourth of july

Today marks the 237th birthday of the United States.

It’s time to celebrate!

We’ve come a long way since 1776.

It’s a shame though, that the founding fathers didn’t have a soundtrack to go along with their signing of the Declaration of Independence.

Or did they?

In any case, here a few patriotic songs to listen to as you celebrate your independence in America, the land of the free.

1. The American Dream, Allstar Weekend: Because we all believe in the dream, don’t we? This song celebrates the fact that in America, it doesn’t matter who you are and where you’re from, you can make it in this world if you have the dream.

2. Party in the USA, Miley Cyrus: Every Fourth of July since 1776 has been a party, so let Miley remind you to live it up!

3. Made in the USA, Demi Lovato: Anything that has been fabricated here in the US has special meaning, so why not celebrate love as well as independence with this song from Demi’s new album?

4. Americano, Lady Gaga: Think about how hard the soldiers fought when Gaga sings “I will fight for, I have fought for how I love you.” And go a little gaga for America.

5. The Star-Spangled Banner, Frances Scott Key: At some point during the day, you’ve got to remember the national anthem. It’s only right.

Have a happy and safe Fourth of July!
