It's truly been the summer of binge, namely two seasons of House of Cards and three seasons of Scandal. Besides the highly addictive story lines, the costumes on these shows are equally as wonderful.
I was thrilled to hear that Scandal's Kerry Washington has teamed up with The Limited to design a line of Olivia Pope influenced clothing that "embodies the elegance and power of the Scandal aesthetic for real life gladiators and everyday fashionistas." Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo came up with a line that is both feminine, modern with a neutral palette that personifies Olivia's character -- think feminine blouses, wide leg trousers and sophisticated jackets and outerwear.
Starting at an affordable $49, the 42-piece fall collection is available in stores and online September 22nd so you too can channel your inner gladiator.
No word yet if a House of Cards Claire Underwood line is in the works. Sign me up when there is.
