Now, a little secret here, I’ve never actually watched an episode of Scandal. Seriously. However, I don’t live under a rock. It’s pretty much common knowledge that the words ‘Olivia Pope’ and ‘style’ go hand in hand. I’ve seen enough tabloid photos and E red carpets to catch on to what Olivia’s style is all about on this show: she stays in a neutral color palate, dresses somewhat modestly while still managing to show off her amazing figure, loves structured bags, and fabulous coats.
I noticed Kerry Washington’s character typically uses some sort of color blocking to show off her insane figure. I didn’t have a color-blocked dress on hand, that was deemed appropriate, so I chose this amaze belt from H&M to sinch my waist and show off a little bit of my womanly figure instead! Notice I didn’t say girlish… after 2 kids I am one big ball of curves, haha! Also, Olivia always has the sickest jackets and coats, BUT, since it’s the middle of August I was not about to throw myself in a wool or fur coat. But I do think my gorgeous London Fog trench gets the point across.
This was a fun character to style and shoot! It’s so strange, I was so excited to style Rachel (from friends, not talking about myself in the 3rd person) and I had the hardest time with her look! Olivia’s was easy, she is elegant and classic but oh-so-chic! Anyway, as announced previously we’re giving away 2 more fabulous pieces of jewelry (graciously donated by Roman & Sunstone and Roman Luxe!) that we think perfectly match Olivia Pope’s style! Since she is somewhat understated when it comes to accessories, we chose classic pearls and CZ studs.
