Summer Time and My Shows

VH1-Hit-the-FloorI discovered this amazing show on VH1 this summer called Hit The Floor and honestly I can’t stop thinking about this show, it’s that good lol. It has everything in it I love about a show its sexy, the men are hot and the drama and mystery of the show is captivating and always keeps me on the edge of my seat. I normally don’t watch VH1 series because it tends to be really trashy and just not my style but this show takes the cake. It kind of reminds of Hellcats but with a lot more flare and a better storyline. The show is centered around the business of basketball and the girls who dance and represent the team.The show has some drama, where the captain of the Devil Girls Squad Jelena is a total bitch. She doesn’t no for an answer, she gets what she wants, eliminates the competition (well try) and totally defies one of the golden rules between Devil Girls and the basketball players. She is the girl you would want to be, but underneath it all there is so much insecurity  and I can’t wait and hope that during the next three episodes we see more of who she really is. There is also Asha, she is a legacy Devil Girl because her mom was an original Devil Girl. She is Jelena competition and everyone plus Jelena knows that Asha can replace her as captain. She is that fresh faced innocent girl that if isn’t careful, she can be taken advantage of but thank god that she is finally getting her head together and taking charge and not letting anyone step all over her. Adding to the drama of the show there is also some crazy behind the scenes stuff like the business with the Mia girl and why she was seen running away in the first episode, Kyle and who she owes money to and the drama with Pete and Sloane (Asha’s parents). My favorite part of the show is the Derek and Asha relationship. Asha has a boyfriend whom she loves and is completely faithful to but when she joined the Devil Girls, Derek started to pursue her which is causing a lot of drama in her relationship with German who by the way finally grew some balls too and punched out Derek on Mondays episode. Guys you need to watch this show from the first episode. I promise you that you won’t be disappointed. If you love drama this is the show for you.

Teen-Wolf

One of my favorites is also back this summer Teen Wolf and I am already screaming and cursing at the TV because of all the chaos these high school kids are causing. This season is a bit of mystery for me because I don’t know what to expect next. They teased all these big teasers during previews and then when you watch the episodes I’m like WTF just happened, how did this happen, I can’t wait for this to happen. This season there is a pack of alphas that are after Scott and also wants Derek to kill his pack to join the Alpha pack, there is Lydia and her terrifying screaming and visions, there is Scott possibly becoming an Alpha without even killing an Alpha and then there is this entire back story with Deucalion his rise to power and also him being hunted by an Argent back in 1977 and biting one of them. The thing that surprised me the most this season was Alison’s dad and how he just stopped hunting werewolves but I do believe that isn’t going to last to long. The most puzzling part of Teen Wolf this season is who is murdering all those people and what are they planning. Stiles thinks it’s some type of sacrifice for a big ritual someone has planned. I am just happy this season will be longer, so I can get my fix and totally understand what is going on. This season is big and if you aren’t watching Teen Wolf please get caught up. You won’t be disappointed.

Fav TV Styles for Less!

Since today is a snowstorm and I have a lot of free time on my hands I decided I want to do a really fun blog post about my favorite TV styles and where you can find the exact outfit or a similar outfit for less. I watch a lot of shows where fashion is like the center point of a lot of shows I watch. There is always some big discussion on twitter, tumblr and a lot of the blogs out there about what your favorite character was wearing tonight.

One of my favorite shows this season is The Carrie Diaries. I just love how they incorporate Carrie Bradshaw style from the 80’s and give it a dash of modern twist. I love how all the colors are so vibrant and they perfectly express how fashion and life was so colorful and daring back then.

The top Carrie wore on the left is an Urban Outfitters Pins and Needles Sarah Jane Peplum Top unfortunately it’s sold out so I really don’t know what the original price of the top was but I found two that were similar to it. The top right top is a Peter Pan collared Peplum top that I found on Ebay for 11.75 GBP or $18.45 USD you can purchase it here. The bottom right corner features a black and white Peter Pan Collared Peplum Top from Forever 21 for only $14.80. If red isn’t really your color you can get the Forever 21 alternative color here.

floral

In episode 3 of The Carrie Diaries she wore this amazing colorful vibrant dress that I just loved. The  Conscious Trend Abstract Floral Dress can be found at H&M but unfortunately due to high demand it was sold out so I don’t really know the original price of it but someone was nice enough to list it on eBay and you can Buy it Now or Submit your best offer here. This dress is perfect for a night out on the town with your friends. This episode happened turned out to be one of the funniest episodes of the season actually and also kind of weird.

heart sweater

Carrie wore a Heart Sweater from French Connection in episode 2 of The Carrie Diaries. I really loved her outfit for the ending scene of this episode it so reflected my style and I immediately ran to my computer to look up similar sweaters at Forever 21. The sweater Carrie is wearing was originally $32 at Lord and Taylor but it’s apparently sold out in a lot of places so I don’t have a direct link to the sweater. However, I found two sweaters that were almost similar to the one she wore. You can find the “Ditsy Heart Raglan Sweater” for $27.80 at Forever 21 here.  The sweater at the bottom right “Heart Pattern Sweater” that comes in peach and mint for $24.80 can be also bought at Forever 21 here.

Spencer wore this cute little sweater in episode 17 “Dead to Me”. It was so simple yet it defined her characters style on the show. It also looks really comfy. This sweater can be found at Urban Outfitters for $69. I couldn’t find a similar one that was in the same price range to give you an cheaper option but I really think this is an appropriate price for this type of sweater.

moto4

In this episode Aria wore a “Vegan Leather Collarless Moto Jacket from Free People” that was priced at $139. I am a fan of Moto jackets and thank goodness that Forever 21 has a wide selection and styles of them. In the top right features a Metallic-Blend Moto Jacket for $18.99. The second Moto jacket is a Faux Leather Moto Vest that comes in Navy, Cream and Black for $17.50. The bottom right Moto Vest is a Quilted Faux Leather Moto Jacket for $34.80

sassyrab

Aria wore this Sassy Rabbit Boxy Tee (the original on the right for $48.00).

hartI also love watching Hart of Dixie mostly because of Wilson Bethel (Wade Kinsella) he is so handsome anyway back on topic. I love how every single character on this show has a different styles. It so inspires me to just mix it up a bit. On the show I love Zoe’s style (props to the person who dresses all these characters on this show you guys ROCK!!) On the left Zoe has on a Rebecca Taylor Leopard-print silk-chiffon blouse and Zara Denim Jacket with Zips and Studs. Unfortunately these items are sold out so I found the closest alternatives on my favorite site Forever 21. I found a Studded Denim Jacket for $39.80 and it’s still available so you can purchase it hereI am not the biggest fan of leopard prints so I found literally a top with leopards on them which I thought was cute and also really stylish so you can buy The Leopard Print Muscle Tee for an amazing price of $13.80 on forever21 website here.

Anna Beth’s style has literally evolved this season on The Hart of Dixie. Last season her style wasn’t at all eye popping but now they have her in some amazing, stylish and cute pieces which I love. She is literally working her newly single status. I absolutely love what they are doing with her character giving her a more daring personality and I also love how she they have added a new sexy look to her hair, makeup and clothes. On the left she has on a ” Anthropologie Peter-Pan Paillettes Sweater” that is actually on sale right now. The top right picture is the original sweater which is on sale for $49.95 originally $168.00 and you can purchase it here. If $50 is too steep of a price for you I found some cute alternatives on Forever 21 and eBay. The second picture is a “Studded Peter Pan Collar Top” for only $19.80 and you can purchase it here.  I actually love the F21 top because it would be perfect for me for work and I love studs. The bottom right is the top I found on eBay. The “Dots Peter Pan Collar sweater” can be purchased right away  here for $32 and it comes in black and navy.

tvdstyle

The fashion on The Vampire Diaries isn’t really there but I have to admit that whenever Rebekah’s around causing trouble and not have a stake in her back her outfits are always on point. I have to say she is always the best dressed on the show with her outfits. In the top picture she has on a ” Anthropologie Heartloom Ruffled Racerback Tank” which is sold out online but I think if you look around in the store you probably can still find it. I also added a picture of the original tank (the bottom left picture). I couldn’t find the exact same top online or a cheaper version on eBay so I found an another Racerback Tank from Urban Outfitters that was on sale. You can buy the “Silence & Noise Soft Woven Racerback Tank” for only $19.99 here 

jacdressRebekah is wearing a Forever 21 Leopard Jacquard Dress which was priced at $25  according to Polyvore but is sold out unfortunately. I found an alternative to the dress also at F21. The “Jacquard Metallic Party Dress” that is pictured in the bottom center and right is $27.80 and can be bought here.

So this is it for this month. I hope you guys enjoyed this little blog post and found it really helpful. I am thinking that I will do a post like this every month featuring some of my favorite TV Styles and where you can find them online for cheaper or an alternative outfit. You can check out http://www.spottedontv.com for more information on what your favorite TV show characters are wearing.

What I’m watching this Winter:Shameless (The craziest family on TV)

Season-3-Promotional-Poster-shameless-us-32713318-800-960I have been religiously watching this TV show for about 3 years now.  It has literally been a wild ride for the last three years. Every episode of Shameless has been OD crazy. This family is literally the best family on television. When I say best I mean that I love the hardcore reality this show portrays even though some of the things this family does is down right impossible to even get away with it lol. This family is literally shameless they totally live up to the name of the show lol. This crazy family does things like rob meat trucks in front of the house, steal someone else’s water heater, Debbie the youngest has an illegal daycare in the summer time, the neighbor Kevin and Lip (the eldest son) has an ice cream truck in the summer and sells weed, alcohol and cigarettes out of it to the neighborhood. There is also a bit of romance in the show between the oldest sister Fiona (Emmy Rossum) and Steve. They have that type of hot and cold relationship. It is very passionate and I truly do think that beyond all the chaos and craziness they truly would be in a healthy relationship if life didn’t get in the way all the time. Steve’s stupid decisions somehow always messes things up and Fiona’s loyalty to her family always comes first which he couldn’t really understand until maybe season 3 where it shows that he has also made her family his top priority which is kinda cute. Dream guy right in so many aspects yes and also no. The jaw dropper is that he is married to this Brazilian mob guys daughter (happened last season) and his real name isn’t Steve it’s Jimmy. Steve aka Jimmy is from a very wealthy family in Chicago and goes by this alias because he steals cars for a living and other crazy stuff that was probably mentioned in the show but I didn’t hear because that wasn’t one of the craziest moments of the show. Carl is the second to last son and he is a little gangsta. He enjoys the thrill, dangerous and crazy aspect of their lives. Ian the second oldest son is probably one of my favorites. I love his willingness to do anything to get out of his current situation and move on up unto bigger and better things. Even though some of his actions aren’t to kosher (crazy gay sex) out of all the older people in the show he has ambitions and actually wants to get out and do something with his life. Phillip aka Lip is the smartest of all his family members but because of how rough shit was when he was growing up and also in his present life he doesn’t believe their is a better future for him beyond the life he lives. Even though his friends, family and the school counselor sees that he can make something of himself his commitment of putting his family first kinda blinds him from seeing that he can actually do something with his life and also make life for his family. His line this season which he religiously believes is true is “When You‘re Poor Is The Only Way ToMake Money Is By Stealing And Scamming It”. Debbie the youngest girl is one of those characters who my hearts breaks for every week. She is someone who no matter what you do to her she forgives you and sees the good in everyone. She is the character that probably has the most heart but it is constantly broken by her father who she loves and gives so many second chances to. She is also current on the hustle of the family meaning that during the summer she comes up with her part of the money to keep her family afloat by running her illegal summer daycare. Frank, their father is probably one of the most hated television fathers to date. This man is drunk 24/7 and constantly does so much ridiculous shit and still expect people to do for him. I have to admit I really hate his character but his crazy antics totally saves the show some weeks during slow episodes. Fiona, the eldest sister and the one who basically held her family together when it fell apart deserves so much credit and probably sister of the year award. She gave up and sacrificed so much just to make sure her siblings had food to eat and a roof over their head. I admire her so much even though sometimes she could be a pain in the ass. She is one of the most selfless characters in this show. She will go above and beyond for her family and I really admire that about her. Regardless of everything she has been through she still finds the strength to get up and take care of herself and family. True hero on my part. I really enjoy watching this show when its on during the winter. I don’t have Showtime so I always have to watch it illegally online or when I beg the Direct TV guy on the phone to give me a couple weeks of free showtime(sorry showtime I just can’t afford the premiums) but I really do enjoy watch this crazy ride of a show and crazy family. Every week there is something new or some new thing these guys do to make it to another day. I really love watching this show. If you want you can check it out on Sunday Nights at 9pm on Showtime. I promise you won’t be disappointed.
