Olivia Pope’s Black and White Dress

Do any of you watch Scandal? It’s Shonda Rhimes’ new show and I love it. I started watching it last year when I heard she was doing it and I think it’s in my top three tv shows right now (R.I.P. Private Practice and Gossip Girl). At least it has been able to fill the void of Private Practice, but I will forever be sad about GG.

Anyway, if you don’t watch it and you love dramatic, “scandalous”, non-reality tv, you have to at least try it out! Shonda Rhimes did Grey’s Anatomy and Private Practice, so if you like those, you’ll probably like this. This isn’t about medicine though. It’s about political scandals. Kerry Washington plays a “fixer”, who is actually based on a real person. I absolutely love her. Watch and let me know what you think!

The main reason for this post is to share the black and white Escada dress that Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) wore on tonight’s show. I am obsessed. At some point I’ll share more of Olivia’s style, because it’s amazing! Credit to Lyn Paolo, the costume designer for Scandal!

Love, secrets, and fashion…what’s not to love?!KERRY WASHINGTON

I told him it would get stuck. He thought it was hilarious.

Yes, that is a shovel tied to a sleigh. Hey whatever works right? He also thought this was hilarious.

Hey, It’s OK…

…to check your luggage when traveling. Some of us have needs that can’t fit in an overhead bin.

…to be skeptical of guys who signs his emails “XO”.

…if you consider Chelsea Handler to be our greatest living philosopher.

…to commute in flats, only to get to work and change into…less comfortable flats.

…to think Pandora sometimes might be more in touch with your feelings than you are.

…to only be capable of karaoke-ing after midnight.

…if your version of a cleanse is just making it to brunch without a snack first. Yay!

…to think the “douche-bag jar’ on New Girl is the best prop since Gossip Girl‘s bow headband.

…to say “YOU’RE WELCOME” if you hold the door and the person doesn’t say thank you.

…to wish you could have whatever’s in Kate Middleton’s stocking. Hell, even just what’s in the toe.

…to see a blinking red light in the sky and still think, Rudolph?

…if quirky, ironic holiday sweaters look neither quirky or ironic on you.

…if your boyfriend thinks you don’t wear any makeup. Sweet, naive boy.

Um, Not OK…

… to eat other people’s food from the work fridge. That’s called stealing. From a hungry person! So rude!

…to bail on plans with a friend, then post photos of what you did instead. The rudeness!

These always crack me up so I just thought I’d pass some of my favorites on from the past few months.
