10th Commandment: April 30

Apr 30, 2012

The new show Scandal on ABC is positively ridiculous.  During the pilot, I eyerolled so hard at a pitchy monologue that I had a headache for hours.  I watched it wondering if this was how surgeons felt when Grey’s Anatomy premiered a few years ago.  

So why do I keep watching?  Because Kerry Washington’s wardrobe on the show is positively amazing.  It’s monochromatic with silks and chiffons, and she wears the most beautiful station necklaces.  I would happily move into the show’s costume department anytime.

Elected Official

Marco Bicego ‘Jaipur’ Station Necklace (Nordstrom, $2,570)

Hill Staffer

Kenneth Jay Lane Station Necklace (Endless, $180)

Unpaid Intern

Green Link Necklace (Last Call, $65)

Look for Less

    Ha…ditto. If that's what people think that Washington is like, no wonder they despise people from inside the Beltway! But her wardrobe is impeccable 🙂

  2. DCQuarterlife says:

    I can't bring myself to watch Scandal. I think I watched 15 minutes of it during the pilot and got so turned off by it. Wardrobe or no, just, ick.

  3. L says:

    $65 for an unpaid intern necklace? It’s lovely, but, as a student, I think that’s a little unrealistic.

  4. XF says:

    I've yet to watch Scandal but might have to tune in to see the clothes. I'm currently obsessed with Julia Louis-Dreyfus's wardrobe on Veep. Power dresses all the way.

  5. Belle says:

    L: As I've mentioned before, don't read to much into the title on the levels. Unpaid intern is always under-$100.

  6. S says:

    I had no idea that these were called “station necklaces”. Also, Scandal is a good guilty pleasure type of show.

  7. L: If you're looking for something similar there are a few vendors at Eastern Market on Saturdays who have had a number of cute options in this style recently.

  8. elz says:

    Yes, and how lawyers felt about “Boston Legal,” etc. I have a Kendra Scott necklace similar to the top choice and it is a great wardrobe staple.

  9. EC MD says:

    In regards to your question about Grays: I spent five years training in Seattle as a general surgeon. The show premiered the month I matched. In a word? Yes.

  10. Moose says:

    Scandal is not worth the wardrobe fawning, it's really not. Ick.

  11. Belle says:

    Moose: Kerry Washington's wardrobe of perfectly tailored Hugo Boss, Rachel Roy, Narciso Rodriguez, OdlR and Black Label Ralph Lauren isn't worth fawning over? What would you prefer she wear?

The Range: Eyelet Tops for Summer

Airy eyelet fabrics are one of my favorite spring/summer looks. White is, of course, the traditional fabric. But white is tough to wear when you have a toddler, so let’s go with navy this summer.
