Updated 1 September 2017.
For me, this particular episode went by way too quickly! I definitely was not expecting this latest installment to go left like it did but this is one of my favorites so far. I spent the majority of my night (and morning) Googling some of the pieces featured this episode. Of course, I’m not done but I’ll update with new info as always. Let’s get into it:

I live for Molly in anything olive green! She opted for a $295 Rag & Bone Army Green Marissa Colorblock Crewneck Sweater (on sale for $117.99 at Off 5th) while chatting with Dre and ignoring her mom’s calls. Let’s get a better look at her jumper:

Molly’s Stella McCartney Ink Blue Olivia Dress & Gianvito Rossi Suede Midnight Blue Pumps | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Ever the good friend, Molly waited with Issa in a $1,195 Stella McCartney Ink Blue Olivia Dress (on sale for $478 at FarFetch). She also wore her beloved $675 Gianvito Rossi Suede Midnight Blue Pumps in this scene.
Molly’s Diane Von Furstenberg Trench Coat and Chloé Drew Small Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag in Blush | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Worn in this scene: Molly’s Diane Von Furstenberg Trench Coat (from Hella Shook) and $1,850 Chloé Drew Small Textured-Leather Shoulder Bag in Blush.
Issa’s Vince Camuto Leather Metallic Hoop Earrings | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
If you’ve been paying attention, you might have recognized Issa’s $28 Vince Camuto Leather Metallic Hoop Earrings, which she also wore in the season one promo. Once upon a time I almost purchased these hoops myself, but ultimately passed on them. However, if you want a pair, Lord & Taylor has a limited inventory of the spiked leather hoops. I’m really surprised they’re still available.
Issa’s Rari Samo FBI Killed Fred Hampton Sweater | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Issa’s $65 (previously $55) Dijon Samo FBI Killed Fred Hampton Sweater is the star piece of this episode. Costume designer Ayanna James mentioned this bold piece in her Vulture interview, and now we have details on where to buy! Designer Rari Samo is currently taking pre orders only right now. You can direct message him at @DijonSAMO or contact him through email (dijonsamo at gmail dot com).
Update (31 August 2017): While perusing Instagram, I stumbled across Enstrumental Clothing‘s post, which the co-founder commented on the similarities between Samo’s FBI Killed Fred Hampton Sweater and his $35 Jake the Snake Shirt. He says:
I made a shirt I titled “Jake The Snake” in 2010 that read “The Chicago Police Dept. Killed Fred Hampton.” Can one of my “peoples” please contact Issa Rae, and inform her that this concept is my creation. Since Sunday night, I’ve seen like [eight] different companies pop up with (offering) this design. Slaves to the rhythm[,] of course. Copycats fuckin’ disgust me. Read the rest of his response.
Issa’s Opening Ceremony Khaki Side Slit Ruffle Skirt | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Eddie’s Mostly Heard Rarely Seen Sneaker Tee | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Eddie rejected Issa’s advances in an $80 Mostly Heard Rarely Seen Sneaker Tee. I really like this shirt. Mostly Heard Rarely Seen has other shirts featuring lego recreations of popular shoe styles but get Eddie’s tee first:
Issa’s Maki Oh Lagos Silk Crepe Fulani Blouse | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Issa’s embroidered crop top is an $850 Maki Oh Lagos Silk Crepe Fulani Blouse.
Tiffany’s C/MEO No Limit Rosewood Jumpsuit, Gucci Lip Appliqué Heels, & Manu Atelier Pristine Mini Leather Shoulder Bag | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Issa’s Levi’s Acid Wash Jean Jacket, Vintage D.A.R.E. Shirt & Veronica Beard Linda Full-Zip Summer Cargo Skirt in Olive | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Issa attended the SexExplosion Expo in a vintage Levi’s Acid Wash Denim Jacket, vintage D.A.R.E. top, and a $395 Veronica Beard Linda Full-Zip Summer Cargo Skirt in Olive. Lucky for us all, the skirt is on sale for $138. Thanks to Julissa for the tip!
Lawrence’s Burberry Nova Check Plaid Olive Green & Purple Shirt | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Issa’s 69 Sixty-Nine Half Denim Shirt | Insecure Hella Blows Fashion
Ok, it’s true that Opening Ceremony once sold Issa’s half crop top, half shirt dress a couple of seasons ago. But, it’s not an Opening Ceremony piece; it’s actually by the brand 69 (or Sixty-Nine, even SixtyNine). 69 simply refers to this piece as the Half Shirt on their Instagram so I’m assuming that’s the official name.
I’ll be back with more fashion IDs but don’t forget to check out the Insecure tag on the blog for past outfit details and buying information.
