Season 4 of Kerry Washington’s hit TV show Scandal kicked off last nite. I will admit I haven’t seen the show, so I didn’t tune in. I subscribed to both Amazon and Netflix to watch that and Orange Is the New Black, but had technical issus w/trying to watch them on my Sony pad, so I gave up. I vow to get caught up. Despite never seeing an episode, I do know that Olivia Pope drinks red wine while wearing cozy cardigans. Here’s the one created for the clothing line.
Drape front cardigan ($89.95) runs regular XS – L and petite XXS – L. The color is off white. 94% Rayon, 6% Nylon. Machine wash, dry flat.
Size XS – The cardigan is a lighter weight fabric, so it isn’t heavy visually or physically. The off-white color is nice. One of my best friends & I were chatting about this sweater the nite it came out. She is a huge fan of Scandal and really likes the cardigan. It would be her style even if Olivia Pope hadn’t worn a sweater like this. However, I told her it reminds me of duster cardigans in the 90s. Not so good. I was pleasantly surprised when I tried it on. The fit was nice and it hit one of my must-have feelings; comfortable.
I was very effusive in my first review of the Scandal line. I still think it’s very well done. The items are very wearable. More than that, I feel feminine in the pieces. Feminine without it being too girly — for me.
I didn’t watch Scandal, but I did watch Viola Davis’s new show. How To Get Away With Murder. Awesome title. The green trench at the end of the episode! Her makeup throughout! It was absolutely flawless. The younger actors are ok. Some are trying a little too hard. Especially the pouty ones. Others are really good, A minor qualm was the music in the show. It was a bit clubby, but then I guess that’s my problem if I’m going to be sitting here knitting tea cozies and trying to stay awake from 10-11p. Maybe they’re trying to keep us awake, attract a young audience or keep a fast paced feel to the show. Perhaps all of the above. Overall, I really enjoyed it and have my alarm set to watch it next week. I need to start watching more tv when it’s as good as this.
p.s. I ordered on Madewell’s WINWIN promo for 30% off promo & sale items. I edited my cart various times all day and in the evening I chose the denim downshift top, sz S. It shipped 4 hours later! I hope it fits well. Here’s some measurement info:
