The world better not experience a week like the last week of May 2020 ever again.

Despite all the ways May went wrong, I was still able to find some amazing things last month that’ll put a smile on your face, if only for a few moments.

Let’s get to it:

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Annalise Keating in Scandal/HTGAWM Crossover

Annalise Keating, Scandal, “Allow Me to Reintroduce Myself” HTGAWM crossover

Needless to say, the Scandal/How to Get Away With Murder crossover episodes were freaking stellar last week during TGIT. In addition to the plot, the Scandal half of the crossover, “Allow me to Reintroduce Myself,” featured some great winter fashion from Annalise (Viola Davis).

At the end of the episode, Annalise is walking down the courthouse steps with Olivia Pope wearing this gorgeous yellow wool trench coat. She paired the coat with a dark brown designer handbag, as the women of Shondaland usually do.

This is my favorite shade of yellow so I basically went nuts when I saw Annalise in this coat!

See below for some items inspired by the look.

Coat:

1. ShopBop, $350.00

2. Banana Republic, $97.99

Bag:

3. Neiman Marcus, $1,595.00

4. Neiman Marcus, $995.00

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Laurel on #HTGAWM Episode “She Hates Us”

Laurel, How To Get Away With Murder

Annalise doesn’t hate you, Laurel, but she might be hatin’ on your style…

On last week’s episode of How To Get Away With Murder titled “She Hates Us,” Laurel Castillo (Karla Souza) mixed business casual with biker chic in a gray sweater dress and black leather jacket.

The sweater dress has a really cute button down front that’s lined with black fabric, adding an extra dimension to the garment.

I couldn’t find any of the original items Laurel wore in the episode but I did manage to find two similar dresses and faux leather jackets to help you pull off this look.

Dress:

1. TB Dress, $17.47

2. Modish, $51.00

Jacket:

3. G by GUESS, $79.99

4. BlueFly, $35.40

Fan Art Fridays: Viola Davis’ Big Emmy Win

viola davis emmy

How to Get Away With Murder‘s Viola Davis won big at the 67th Primetime Emmy Awards this week. She’s the first black woman to receive the award for leading actress in a drama.

Adding this to the list of 2015’s groundbreaking events!

Apparently she got some backlash for her speech, but of course people would find something negative to say about all of this.

In honor of Viola Davis’ Emmy win, I’ve dedicated this week’s Fan Art Fridays to a GIF of the actress holding her well-deserved trophy. I found the GIF on Tumblr, and below the cartoon version of Viola it reads,

“The only thing that separates women of color from anyone else is opportunity.”
