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

February Favorites: Oscars Fashion & “Chained to the Rhythm” Music Video

feb-17-faves

Is it just me, or was February kind of intense?

If anything, I think February 2017 takes the cake as the month where every TV show plot line spun out of control. I thought we were supposed to be saving the whole coming “in like a lion and out like a lamb” thing until March …

Anyway, here are my faves in pop culture and entertainment for February 2017.

Favorite News Articles

1. The Voice drama. I bet Gwen will actually end up sleeping on the couch at some point this season.

2. There’s an orangutan at a Danish zoo choosing a mate from an iPad. Safe to say online dating isn’t limited to homo sapiens anymore …

Favorite Music

1. “Heavy” by Powers. Those instrumental bits in the chorus are making me beg for summer.

Wardrobe Wednesdays: Viola Davis @ 74th Golden Globe Awards

viola-davis-74th-golden-globe-awards

Life gave Viola Davis some lemons, and from those lemons, we got a Golden Globes dress.

My mom and I could not take our eyes off that bright yellow dress Viola Davis wore to the 2017 Golden Globes! Yellow is my favorite color, so of course she won best dressed on my list.

She wore the dress with a simple white clutch bag. I love the one shoulder detail, which gives the gown an extra dash of sexy.

See below for some items inspired by this Golden Globes look!

Dress:

1. OASAP, $60.75

2. DresSale, $125.99

Clutch Bag:

3. Saks Fifth Avenue, $895.00

4. Nasty Gal, $48.00

 

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

This month brought a ton of fall season premieres and amazing music from some of my favorite artists. Here are my favorites in pop culture for September:

Happy October!

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.”

View the original on Tumblr and watch Viola Davis’ acceptance speech below.
