I mean, you had to know this one was coming right? Who is more iconic when it comes to on-screen style than Carrie Bradshaw?
DRESS: FOREVER21 || SHOES: JIMMY CHOO (no longer available) || CLUTCH: TORY BURCH || NECKLACE: H&M (similar here), C/O ROMAN LUXE
When I think of Carrie Bradshaw, pretty much anything goes. I literally could have worn a potato sack with Manolo’s and called it “Sex & the City Chic.” However, there are a few things that stand out to me; spaghetti straps, slip dresses, over the top accessories, killer heels, and clutches. I thought about wearing my hair naturally curly for this post, the one time I really could and get away with it, but the outfit that inspired me was paired with a ‘sock bun’ on the show, so I opted for that look instead.
I was the most nervous about trying to take on this look. Carrie Bradshaw is literally such a style icon that the idea of trying to emulate her was intimidating, to say the least! When it came down to it though, this was so outside of my comfort zone I ended up having the most fun with this one. This is an outfit I would probably never wear out in public, at least not all together, but I kind of love it just the same. Plus I have been dying for an excuse to wear these Jimmy Choo heels I have been lusting over for about five years now that my husband found for me a few months ago! One last pair in my size all the way from the UK! Bless his little heart. Anyway, I’m so sad that this collab is over! I’ve never had more fun blogging than I have this past week. These ladies are AMAZING! Stop by their sites and show them some love! They deserve it!

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.
DRESS: H&M (similar) || BELT: H&M (similar here,) || COAT: LONDON FOG (ON SALE NOW!)|| SHOES: CHRISTIAN LOUBOUTIN || BAG: KATE SPADE (similar) || SHADES: RAY BAN || EARRINGS: KATE SPADE
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.

This whole collaboration was so much fun! I got to dress up and have some fruity cocktails and take pictures in places I never would have before, ha. Love pushing myself out of my comfort zone, with the help of a few margaritas, but still. When I see Mindy Kaling on The Mindy Project she’s always sporting some deep jewel tones, so this dress instantly called out to me. Since we’re putting our own spin on her style, I dressed it up a little more rather than making it look more preppy. I loved this dress so much I bought it in black as well!
