The Limited + Scandal

Everyone knows Olivia Pope’s got style. If you think you can handle copious amounts of red wine around a lot of cream, white and beige clothes, you’ll surely want to scoop up pieces from the new Scandal-inspired collection of womenswear later this month at The Limited.  The collaboration partnered leading lady Kerry Washington with her brilliant costume designer Lyn Paolo so you know it’s gonna be fierce.  I think it’s going to be a smashing success and can’t wait to see it. There’s gotta be an over-sized white coat, right?

P.S. Season 4 Scandal teaser spoilers. And the most perfect dress Olivia Pope ever wore.

Oh, Overalls

So, apparently overalls are making a comeback.  Not kidding!  I’m all for the vintage/retro attire but I don’t quite know how I feel about overalls. Certainly they’re cute and easy to wear. Very spring and summery.  I think it’s perhaps that I still cringe recalling wearing very over sized overalls from Gap back in middle school and high school. With a tube top.  Very classy, I know.  But this pair from Topshop seems pretty unassuming for casual Saturdays out running errands or picnicking in the park.  Don’t forget your white Keds!

Sweet Stuff: My Closet on Poshmark

In an effort to totally declutter (nesting much?!?) my closet, I’ve started listing a bunch of items on Poshmark. If you’re not yet obsessed with Poshmark like I am, sorry to be the one to make you less productive slash obsessively check your phone and buy things you don’t really need because they’re such a good deal. But there it is…enjoy!

I figure it’d be nice to make a few dollars if I can (most of the items listed are under $20 with just a few exceptions. I’m definitely open to all offers and if this stuff doesn’t clear out in a month or two, I’ll likely be taking it to Goodwill anyway. So, check out my closet, peruse around, and start adding your favorites to your collection of likes.

Happy Shopping!

 

P.S. Do you have items from your closet listed on Poshmark?  Or, are you specifically on the hunt for a particular item?  I found this amazing red J.Crew bag that I can’t get out of my head!

Emerald Green for 2013

Did you know that Emerald Green is Pantone’s color of the year for 2013?  (read more about that here.)  It’s good news for people like my brother who have been wondering what to do with the green carpet that covers most of his home — it’s totally in style now!  That’s the thing, isn’t it? You wait long enough and you’re always back in style. Well, I’ve had a Nordy’s gift card burning a hole in my pocket since my birthday and I think I’ve found just the outfit to spend it on!
