My birthday week continues with one of my favorite shows, Scandal, mixed with one of my style icons, Kerry Washington, and my love of clothes. What could be better? As I posted last week, the show partnered up with a clothing store and The Limited’s Scandal collection came out yesterday – I am obsessed. When I read back in June that The Limited was not only working with costume designer Lyn Paolo, but also with Kerry Washington herself I was incredibly exited to see how the pieces would come out. They sure did not disappoint and I love this quote from Kerry:
“Women often feel that they have to be either smart or beautiful, powerful or pretty, either fashion forward or successful, and I think this clothing line says you can be all of those things,” Washington says. “You can be fabulous and fearless. And you don’t have to compromise who you are as a woman to fit somebody’s expectation of what power looks like.”
I would agree with many of the press releases I read while waiting to see all of the pieces – the wardrobe staples and statement pieces alike are strong, professional, confident and “always impeccable”. A few of the 78 items are a bit pricey, ranging from $180 to $250, but they are beautiful! (The collection starts at $50) Here are my favorite pieces:
The show returns tomorrow night, preceded by the season premiere of Grey’s Anatomy, and it is almost like an early birthday present. I can not wait to see the Gladiators back in action! And I’m #TeamFitz just in case anyone was wondering, how could you not be after Vermont?
