Over the weekend I starting watching a new show on Netflix, called Scandal ! Not only is the main character played by the lovely, Kerry Washington who is one of only a few African-American women to land a lead role on prime-time television. The first to do so since 1974. Now you can understand why I’m blown away by Scandal and much more!
The show is based on Judy Smith’s life, a damage control specialist/lawyer/PR Executive, who is a co-producer for the show along side Shonda Rhimes, creator of longtime popular series Grey’s Anatomy. The show is about Olivia Pope, a crisis management specialist who fixes clients. Beyond the plot of the show, it encompasses some killer fashion choices that Olivia Pope wears that make you want to update your business attire.
It never occurred to me that professional wardrobe could be feminine, stylish and portray leadership. However, after watching this show along with another of my favorites, Damages I want to upgrade my closet with a few Oliva Pope essentials, especially in time for fall.
I want this zip up off-white top!
I’m looking for a new trench but I think I’ll stick to camel but we’ll see.
I need to layer a couple long elegant necklaces, done!
The seafoam blouse compliments the entire ensemble.
I grew up watching Spice World on VHS, wearing platform sneakers and trying to figure out which one of my friends and I were who in the group Spice Girls. Back in the day everyone wanted to be baby spice so I was always nominated to be scary and sporty spice (which was fine by me, my hair was definitely curly and huge and I adored sports). I look back at how much entertainment and fun this all female group brought to my childhood and I smile. Thank you Spice Girls!!!
Any who, I love the Spice
Girls Women and here’s another look at their performance and their style from last night.

Actress and America’s Next Top Model winner, Eva Marcille attended the BET Awards ’12 at The Shrine Auditorium on July 1, 2012 in Los Angeles, California. Marcille glowed in white and showed off her lengthy limbs. I love her earrings, make-up and her all-around sexy summer look.

Kim Kardashian attended the 2012 BET Awards in a body-hugging white dress. She happened to match her beau Kanye West. Coincidence? I think not but either way do you think she could walk away Best Dressed of the night? Wrong again but it does compliment her physique and she does look picture perfect.
