Ok, so I’m two and a bit years behind. Sue me. Actually, don’t… This fabulous character doesn’t represent me. Given as we are entering what I lovingly refer to as the “TV Dead Zone”where the only thing on network television is reality shows, more reality shows or a show about being trapped under a giant glass dome, I recently started Netflix watching – and becoming addicted to – Scandal. While the plot is akin to many TV shows of the era, I love one thing about this one above all others: Olivia Pope, played by Kerry Washington. She’s tough, no-nonsense, flawlessly dressed and impeccably groomed. Here’s just a small clip of her style which is only part of the reason I am now a devoted watcher. Perfect summer TV and inspiration for a powerful woman wardrobe that’s not black suits or matronly dresses.
