Its been a long time since I’ve been excited about a television show. “Scandal” (Thursdays, 10pm on ABC) instantly sucked me into the world of Olivia Pope (played by the wonderful Kerry Washington) and her “gladiators in suits”. On Thursday nights you’ll find me glued to the television (and Twitter! LOL) watching the twists and turns unfold on this great show. I’m thrilled to see a strong, flawed and intelligent African-American woman being portrayed on prime time television. Her character isn’t some stereotypical depiction of a women of color. The show allows Olivia Pope to be a human being with all its complexities.
Aside from Olivia Pope’s personal attributes, her style is FIERCE! Everything from her crisp white trench down to her stilettos is always on point.
Olivia Pope’s sleek professional style inspired my outfit today. I’ve been searching for a colored suit for a minute so when I stumbled upon these Calvin Klein separates I scooped them up. Red is a powerful, vibrant color so wearing it was the perfect way to pay tribute to her.
If you get an opportunity, check out “Scandal” on Hulu, Netflix or at ABC.com for full episodes.
Have a wonderful weekend!
