#BloggersBTS Linkup: Favorite Back-to-School Looks on TV

back to school fashion

August is here, and summer is slowly coming to an end. That means it’s time to start making those back-to-school shopping lists!

In addition to buying new school supplies, you might have grown out of your clothing from the last school year, or maybe you just want to add a few new pieces to your wardrobe. Regardless, here are a few outfits I love from my favorite high school and college-aged characters on TV to help you decide what to wear for your first day back!

BTS Linkup Spencer

Spencer Hastings loves to wear dark colored sophisticated pieces. In this scene from Pretty Little Liars, she’s wearing a shirt dress with leggings, paired with a belt and boots (footwear not pictured). This look is perfect for those days when you don’t feel like wearing jeans!

Episode Review: ‘Devious Maids’ 1×5 “Taking Out the Trash”

Devious_Maids_logoIt’s been five episodes and I am most definitely hooked!

Last nights episode of Devious Maids titled “Taking Out the Trash” was full of drama. Between hitting people over the head with prosthetic legs and catfights with Remi’s high school ex-girlfriend, I could not help but stare at the screen with my jaw dropped as it all went down.

One of the biggest jaw droppers of this episode is learning that Carmen is married.

Yes, she is still tied to the man who tried to stop her from making her dreams become a reality.

Her husband Oscar finds out where she is working as a maid, and takes a trip out to see her. Sam and Odessa convince her to face him and let him know she doesn’t want to be married anymore.

However, Oscar has other plans, including returning her wedding band and trying to lure her back into his life with a gig at his friend’s restaurant.

Carmen refuses and things get violent. Oscar begins to forcefully grab Carmen and leave the house with her. Sam tries to take him on but gets knocked out and onto the bird cage, accidentally setting Alejandro Rubio’s bird free.

As much as Odessa wants to ruin Carmen’s life, she doesn’t want to give Oscar the pleasure of doing it for her, so she hits him over the head with her prosthetic leg.

That was the best fight I’ve seen in a while!

Other interesting events in this episode:

1. Valentina finds Remi’s high school ex girlfriend in his bed wearing red lingerie. When Remi leaves for an appointment with his college adviser, she gives Valentina a hard time, resulting in a cat fight between the two. (Side note: Pretty Little Liars fans, if you’re wondering where a Jason Dilaurentis went, he’s on Devious Maids! Remi Delatour is played by Drew Van Acker!)

2. When Peri Westmore leaves for work, Spence Westmore decides to swoop Rosie in for a kiss. She tells him no, and when he persists she threatens to hit him over the head with a pan. Peri returns to grab her keys and Rosie keeps her promise, leaving Spence on the floor just as Peri walks into the kitchen. Ooops. Blame it on the waxed floors!

3. Eddie had proposed to Flora a few months before her death. This case isn’t looking up for this kid.

4. Every year, Evelyn and Adrian Powell celebrate their dead son’s birthday. I just find it odd that they go the whole nine yards with a cake, candles AND a gift for him. He’s not alive to eat the cake, blow out the candles or even wear the wonderful cashmere blouse Evelyn got him! A simple memorial would have been fine but this is just too much! I hope they donate those gifts to a nice charity every year.

As with every week, I can never believe the episode is already over when it ends. Can’t wait for next week!
