Scandal “Even the Devil Deserves a Second Chance” Recap

The impeachment is over and the White House is celebrating…for about five minutes until they find out that Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) father is free. How much longer until they figure out who helped him escape? Olivia wore the sold out Armani Collezioni Triple Layer Hem Wool Blend Jacket. This Preston & York Nisha Blazer ($99) is similar:

Armani Collezioni

The party is over when everyone finds out that Rowan (Joe Morton) has escaped…aka Olivia helps him get out in exchange for getting rid of the impeachment. The thing I love about Jake (Scott Foley) is that he totally calls Olivia out on her double standards. Olivia wore a sold out Max Mara Detroit Belted Camel Hair Jacket and carried a beige Prada tote ($2,500). This BCBGeneration Tuxedo Blazer ($118) and Michael Kors Selma Satchel ($389.17) are similar:


Later Olivia and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) are hanging out in the Oval Office when Cyrus (Jeff Perry) comes in with a new agenda…he’s a little disappointed when he realizes that Olivia is running the show now. The President is preparing to give out the Presidential Medal of Freedom and all seems great until Olivia’s new client claims that the honoree is a rapist. This puts Liv and Fitz on opposing sides this week. Olivia wore an Armani Collezioni Zigzag Zip-Front Jacket ($348) and had her Prada Saffiano Medium Executive Tote Bag ($2,500) on hand. This 1 STATE Chevron Peplum Jacket ($89.50) and Michael Kors Selma Tote ($300) are similar:

Armani Collezioni Chevron

Abby (Darby Stanchfield) takes some time to meet with Liz North (Portia de Rossi). Abby carried a sold out Zac Posen Eartha Metallic Colorblock Leather Tote Bag. There is an all black version still available for $276.50:

Zac Posen

Liz breaks the news to Abby that she’s planning to go on The Liberty Report with Sally Langston (Kate Burton) if Abby doesn’t find her a job back at the White House. Liz wore a sold out Wool Plaid Coat from Brooks Brothers and she carried a Zac Posen Eartha Iconic Jumbo Double Handle Bag ($595). This Vera Wang Herringbone Long Fit & Flare Coat ($450) and McKleinUSA Tablet Faux-Leather Shoulder Tote ($199.50) are similar:

Abby runs to Cyrus with this information and gets David Rosen (Joshua Malina) involved to silence Liz. She wore a Gucci Pussy-bow Silk-Georgette Top ($597). This INC International Concepts Long-Sleeve Tie-Neck Blouse ($39.99) is similar:


Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) went to question Frank Holland about their client’s accusations and he plays dumb making their client look foolish. Olivia wore a sold out Pleated Silk Blouse by Etro. This Matte Jersey Shell from Ann Taylor ($49.50) is similar:


Liz North is still planning to spill the White House secrets on Sally Langston, but Olivia doesn’t seem scared. She is running Fitz and the Oval in the most beautiful bow blazer. I wish I could find the original. This was so unique I had a hard time finding a match. The closest I could do was this BGN Blazer ($166):

Bow Blazer

Liz blinked and didn’t sell out the White House secrets to Sally Langston, but instead we discover that Fitz has given her a job as Susan Ross’ chief of staff. Liz wore a GUCCI Pussy-Bow Printed Silk-Crepe Blouse ($750). This Sanctuary Boho Nouveau Blouse ($44.99) is similar:

Gucci pussy bow blouse

Later she ends up seducing David Rosen and Olivia handles Frank Holland. Cyrus finally figures out that Olivia is running the show not Fitz…and Olivia embraces it. We’ll see how long that lasts when Fitz finds out she was the one who released Command.

Scandal “Get Out of Jail, Free” Recap

It’s impeachment week on Scandal and the first on the hot seat is Mellie Grant (Bellamy Young). The committee steamrolls her and puts her in a terrible situation. The one thing I love about Mellie and this episode is that she won’t stay down for long. At the hearing she wore a Dolce & Gabbana Fitted Blazer ($878) and a Boss Dokysa Ponte Knit Dress ($196.20) with this Roberto Coin Cocktail Necklace ($5200). To recreate the look I found this H&M Fitted Blazer ($49.99) with this Adrianna Papell Cap Sleeve Jacquard Sheath Dress ($140) and this Bezel Gem Oval Pendant Necklace ($67.80):

Dolce and Gabbana

Olivia (Kerry Washington) realizes it before everyone else and calls Abby (Darby Stanchfield) to warn her. Abby wore a Ponte Knit Dress from Brooks Brothers ($148.50). This Halogen Ponte Dress ($98) is similar:

Brooks Brothers Ponte Dress

In order to handle the situation and prevent Olivia from testifying, Cyrus (Jeff Perry) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) propose marriage. Olivia doesn’t go for the idea. She wore an Armani Collezioni Croc-Embossed Taffeta Jacket ($443.70). This Kasper Open-Front Swirl-Print Jacquard Jacket ($89.25) has a similar look and feel.


Abby, Quinn (Katie Lowes) and Huck (Guillermo Diaz) have to stand trial before the committee regarding Jeanine Locke and unfortunately have to pin everything on Harrison. In the meantime, Olivia gets a call from the hospital informing her that Eli (Joe Morton) is there. She pays him a visit and he tries to get her to release him. Olivia wore a cardigan similar to this Neiman Marcus Mixed-Stitch Draped Cashmere Cardigan ($168.75):

NM Cashmere Collection

Fitz then tries to propose to Olivia in a romantic way, which she completely shoots down. Desperate for a solution, she calls Jake (Scott Foley) for his opinion and he hangs up on her (good for him!). Then she meets Mellie in secret to try to get her to release Papa Pope so he can blackmail the committee and let her off the hook. I was so proud of Mellie for standing up to her in this scene. This is definitely a low point for Olivia. After all the work to get rid of Eli, she is now trying to set him free…unbelievable!

Fitz finally gets his divorce, but not without some final words from Mellie. I was so proud as she finally stood up for herself.

The wedding day finally arrives and Olivia is stunning in a Victoria Beckham Short-Sleeve Shift Dress ($2,365), sold out St. John Collection Beaded Organza-Trimmed Boucle Jacket ($757.98), Manolo Blahnik BB Pumps ($595) and a Prada Double Bag ($2,980).

St. John

To recreate the look I found this Ralph Lauren Ruched Cap-Sleeve Dress ($149), Tahari ASL Pearl Embellished Jacket (from the set) ($199.99), Steve Madden Proto Pump ($60), and this Calvin Klein On My Corner Saffiano Leather Satchel ($248):

Wedding recreation

Olivia sees her life passing before her eyes and you can literally see her backing out of this arrangement. Lucky for her, Mellie by way of Eli saves her by blackmailing the committee. She meets Mellie for one last confrontation where Mellie finally realizes that she can have anything she wants and I love it. Mellie is on fire tonight! Olivia wore a sold out Max Mara Drape Collar Reversible Coat. This DKNY Two-Tone Hooded Wrap Coat ($177) is similar:

Max Mara

Now that Eli and Tom are free, anything could happen! What do you think Fitz will say?

Scandal “You Got Served” Recap

We open this week’s Scandal with the Senate opening an investigation into Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and Olivia’s (Kerry Washington) affair. David Rosen (Joshua Molina) has to give everyone a reminder that an impeachable offense is whatever the Senate wants it to be and nobody is safe. I liked Elizabeth North’s (Portia de Rossi) blouse, but personally am not a fan of the wide leg trousers. This Wayf Keyhole Long Sleeve Blouse ($54) is similar:


Things get a little awkward for Olivia when she has to fix herself as her own client. She wore a Vince Geometric-Print Silk Tee ($165).

Vince geometric

Since doctors make the worst patients, Olivia brings in Leo Bergen (Paul Adelstein) to be her fixer. As he tries to make her a “woman of the people” he has to take her wardrobe down a notch by only having her wear clothes you can get at the mall. First up is this Anorak Jacket from Target ($31.50):

Anorak Jacket

The strategy is to get someone with a great public profile to talk Olivia up and the team agrees on Edison Davis (Norm Lewis), much to Olivia’s chagrin. She has to meet with him and convince him by admitting some hard truths about herself. He is still pretty angry about her lies in their relationship. Olivia wore a MaxMara Visone Reversible Wool & Angora Wrap Coat with Belt ($2,990). This T Tahari Mia Brushed Wool Blend Wrap Coat ($174.90) is similar:

MaxMara Visone

Her fabulous bag was the trusty Prada Saffiano Lux Tote ($2,500). This Michael Kors Sutton Tote ($375.44) is a great look for less:

prada saffiano lux tote

Apparently, she did it because in the next scene he is giving a glowing interview about her on national television. Olivia wasn’t too thrilled in any case, watching the broadcast with Fitz. She wore a Ralph Lauren Cabled Cashmere Open Cardigan ($779). This Plush Ribbed Cardigan ($29.97) is similar:

Ralph Lauren Cardigan

This strategy works until Mellie (Bellamy Young) gives the media a tip about the ring that Fitz gave to Olivia. Now Olivia has to sell her love story to the press. For some reason this is an issue for her, which prompts a visit to Jake (Scott Foley). She wore the same Mossimo Anorak Jacket ($44.99), this time in Forest Ranger Green.


Jake tells Olivia like it is. I still have no idea why she picked Fitz over him – he obviously knows her better. Olivia takes his advice and tells the press how she really feels about Fitz – it is odd to see. She wore a white peplum blouse for her TV interview. I found this similar Michael Kors Short-Sleeve High-Low Peplum Top ($58.99) to recreate the look:

michael kors peplum

Everything is moving along swimmingly until Olivia discovers that the Senate committee knows about her abduction and why the President went to war in West Angola. Olivia dons the Natori Enchant Chemise ($160) and turns up the music to tell Fitz the news. They realize that Cyrus (Jeff Perry) is the only one that can connect Fitz to the tape and confirm their suspicions.


Olivia and Jake have dinner together and they talk about his wife. They are a weird couple. I can’t decide how she really feels about Jake. Olivia wore a cozy long cardigan and a Vince Boy-Fit Jersey Tee ($60). This Halogen Wool & Cashmere Drape Front Cardigan ($148) is similar:

Vince jersey tee

At the end of the episode, Cyrus betrays Mellie yet again by going back to Fitz. After watching their scene, you couldn’t help but expect it – those two were meant for each other #Bitz (or #Feane?) is who I’m shipping for.

Scandal “The Last Supper” Recap

Jake (Scott Foley), Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) finally come to an agreement about how to handle Rowan (Joe Morton) and Jake gives up the files he has been hiding.

Meanwhile, Olivia gets a new client in Elizabeth North (Portia de Rossi). I like that they agree not to like each other and stick to the job at hand. Olivia is wearing the Check Peplum Jacket from The Limited. It is sold out online, but you can still find it here on eBay.

the limited check peplum

In a sudden turn of events, Vice-President Nichols (Jon Tenney) is almost killed in a car explosion which is rumored to have been set by West Angolian terrorists. Mellie (Bellamy Young) is overcome with emotions and breaks all her rules to have sex with Andrew.

Olivia, Fitz (Tony Goldwyn), and Jake (Scott Foley) decide to bring David Rosen (Joshua Malina) into the take B613 down club to have him help prosecute Eli (Joe Morton). Fitz is pleased that even though Olivia is with Jake, that he still has her number. Olivia isn’t that excited about it though.

Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) are on the case of Elizabeth North’s bugged phone, which they are able to pin to Cyrus (Jeff Perry). Olivia confronts him and he tells her the whole story about Michael (Matthew del Negro) and how he has to find out what Elizabeth has on him. Cyrus tries to convince Olivia to help him instead of Elizabeth. Olivia wears a sold-out Ralph Lauren Collection Marielle Drape-Panel Coat. This Tommy Bahama Woodley’ Sweater Coat ($298) is similar:

Ralph Lauren shawl coat

Cyrus is pretty upset about the whole situation and tries to avoid Michael to no avail. Huck tells Olivia that Michael did have access to Cyrus’ personal information, but never shared it with Elizabeth. For some reason he was loyal to Cyrus. Olivia wore a sold out Long Sleeve Blouse in Ivory by Derek Lam. This Vince Camuto Long Sleeve V-Neck Blouse w/ Inverted Front Pleat ($79) is similar:

derek lam

Olivia confronts Michael and he leads her to Elizabeth’s private apartment which Huck is able to bug and stake out. Olivia wears an Alexander McQueen Herringbone-Boucle Cossack Coat (sold out). This Princess Seam Wool Coat ($59.99) is similar:

alexander mcqueen

The scene between Mellie and Andrew was so sweet and then he had to go and ruin it by sleeping with Elizabeth North. Quinn’s stakeout ended up overlapping into Huck’s stakeout which he brought his son on. This turns into a disaster with his son witnessing him murder Kubiak.

Olivia tries to trick her father into having dinner as a distractions so she can get the upper hand. She can’t take command and Rowan ends up killing the president’s strike team. He cuts her off and tells her that he will no longer help her and that he is leaving. He has also got the upper hand on David Rosen making sure that all the files are blank.

That was a pretty dramatic episode, but this seems to be the one relationship Olivia can’t “handle.”

Scandal “Baby Made a Mess” Recap

This week’s episode of Scandal opens with Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) calling Olivia (Kerry Washington) in hopes of meeting up. She sets him straight that there is no hope for them as long as Jake (Scott Foley) is imprisoned. She lounges in Contrast Trim Silk Pajamas in Brulee/Ivory by Neiman Marcus (sold out). The Afterhours Satin Pajamas from Victoria’s Secret ($69.50) are similar:

neiman marcus pajamas

Quinn (Katie Lowes) confronts Jeremy Winslow about his daughter. She wants to know what’s going on and how Olivia is connected. Instead of giving her answers he commits suicide instead.

In the latest D.C. scandal, Senator McDonnell from Virginia is exposed with a racy video detailing his “playtime” and has to resign his seat. When taking questions from the press corps, Abby (Darby Stanchfield) finds out that Charles “Chip” Putney (Michael Trucco) is being considered to replace him, the only problem is this is Abby’s ex-husband. In case you forgot this is the guy that Olivia rescued her from after regular beatings.

Olivia is pacing trying to figure out what to do next to save Jake (Scott Foley) when Abby calls. She is falling apart over confronting Chip and Olivia is the only one who understands. Olivia comes to her rescue wearing a gorgeous white jacket with gold buttons from Prada. This Jessica Simpson coat ($115.99) is a great match especially if you replaced the buttons for gold ones.

I LOVE that Olivia comes to Abby’s rescue and is determined to handle the situation. Girls gotta stick together! Enter Susan Ross (Artemis Pebdani) who is running for Virginia state senator. I just love the scene when Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) come in and take over her sad excuse for a campaign. Susan is just so sweet and clueless about how the game is played and I couldn’t think of a more deserving person for Olivia to help. Olivia wears a sold-out Armani Collezioni
Ikat-Weave Jacket. This Kasper Women’s Inverted Notch Printed Flyaway Jacket ($99) is similar:

armani collezioni3

In the meantime Olivia is still working to save Jake by visiting Tom (Brian Letscher) in SuperMax to find out who really ordered him to kill the President’s son. His reaction to her was really interesting. He compared her to Helen of Troy, the face that launched 1,000 ships which is pretty close to the truth in this situation. He doesn’t give her the answers she is looking for and Olivia reassures him that because he is now a loose end her father will eventually take him out. Tom does mention that Fitz tried to kill himself when Olivia left, which is shocking to her.

On the campaign trail, OPA is trying to get Susan Ross to record a campaign message but she is horrible on camera. Olivia comes up with the brilliant idea to have Susan’s daughter tape the message instead. Olivia trades her trademark blazers for a feminine blouse. This H&M Silk Blouse ($40) is similar:


Fitz calls Olivia for a night of racy phone sex. She tries to confront him about his suicide attempt but he counters by revving her up and leaving her hanging. It’s obvious that Fitz is a drug she just can’t quit. Olivia wore The Limited Plaid Cape ($89.99) and was carrying her marble Prada Saffiano Cuir Tote (sold out). For a look for less try the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Tote ($268):


Leo Bergen (Paul Adelstein) comes to Abby to tell her that he has found some dirt on Susan Ross. She finally admits what Chip did to her much to Leo’s surprise.

Speaking of confrontations, Eli pays Olivia a visit and calls her out for visiting Tom. He warns her not to go up against him because she will lose. Olivia doesn’t seem to worried about any of that. She wears a Burberry Trench ($1497.04). This Calvin Klein Double Breasted Trench Coat ($158) is similar:

burberry trench

Tom doesn’t last much longer than that, getting stabbed in the next scene just like Olivia predicted. The team finally lets Olivia in on their secret, that Jeremy Winslow’s firm was meeting about Olivia.

Cyrus (Jeff Perry) put out a test to find out if his newest boy toy was leaking information but he doesn’t pass – Mellie (Bellamy Young) regurgitates it during her interview about the new White House china pattern. She is wearing an Escada 3/4-Sleeve Off-Center Twist Keyhole Dress (sold out). This Catherine Malandrino Terri Keyhole Drape Front Dress ($168) is similar:

Escada keyhole dress

Then it all comes together, Mellie tells Fitz where to go, Olivia reveals that she “handled” Tom by paying to have him stabbed which gets him to confess the real truth which she can share with Fitz, Huck’s son tracked him down and shows up at the office and Leo admits that he leaked the real Chip to the media and then kisses Abby!! I didn’t see any of that coming!

What do you think Papa Pope will do when he finds out Fitz and Olivia sprung Jake from SuperMax?

Scandal “An Innocent Man” Recap

This week’s Scandal starts out with a dream sequence where Olivia (Kerry Washington) is torn between her two lovers. Who will she choose? In her dream she sports this Golightly Swimsuit by Oye Swimwear ($350). I found this Block Party Front Zip One-Piece Swimsuit by Seafolly ($142) to recreate the look for less.


Mellie (Bellamy Young) finally gets back in action as first lady when she has to plan a funeral for a former president. She looks great in a sold out Michael Kors dress. This Kasper Lace Panel Sheath Dress ($59.99) is similar:

michael kors

In the meantime, Olivia wore a fabulous Check Trench Coat from The Limited Scandal Collection (sold out) to meet a client in prison. I would keep my eye on eBay to see if this pops up. I did find this Line & Dot Plaid Keaton Trench Coat here and here for $107-120.

limited check trench coat

I love when Abby (Darby Stanchfield) finally stood up to Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) for Olivia. She might be mad at Olivia, but she is a good friend in the end.

Olivia and Quinn (Katie Lowes) meet their new client, Leonard Carnahan (Brian Benben), and it is interesting when he quotes Olivia back to her, saying “The truth is like the sun.” Olivia wore an Escada Draped Silk Tee (sold out). I liked this Halogen Sleeveless Drape Neck Top ($11.90) because it had a higher quality material to match the Escada look:

escada draped blouse

I loved the scene with Mellie and Bitsy Cooper, the former first lady. I think she gave Mellie some hope for the future.

Abby’s rant towards Fitz got him to show up at Olivia’s door. Olivia wore the Ilia Ribbed Cocoon Cardigan from The Row ($1990). This Leith Open Front Long Cardigan ($82) is similar:

the row

I also have to take a second and applaud Olivia’s statement for Fitz not to call Abby a bitch and not to use that word to describe women. Kudos to Shonda for adding that in there!

Olivia and team are able to get an autopsy on the late president and David Rosen (Joshua Malina) catches on to what they did. I have to say that they are good. Olivia wore a sold out Armani Collezioni Jacquard Asymmetric-Front Jacket and carried her Prada Saffiano Lux Double-Zip Tote ($2500). This Anne Klein Women’s Houndstooth Metal and Contrast Detail Jacket ($139) and Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Tote ($298) are similar:

armani collezioni houndstooth

Unfortunately, in the end Olivia gets played by Carnahan, but she does get a one up on her father by out manipulating him with Fitz. She ends up saving Jake’s life which is a start.

I loved Mellie with Bitsy at the funeral. That was the best we have seen her all season, I can’t wait to see more of her comeback!

Abby gets to call Cyrus (Jeff Perry) out on his secret tryst. That was a great moment on Abby’s part. She is starting to come into her own.

Olivia wore an Alexander Wang Mesh Combo Racer Back One-Piece Swimsuit (sold out). This La Blanca Sheer-Inset One-Piece Swimsuit ($109) is similar:

Scandal “The Key” Recap

Things start to heat up in this week’s episode of Scandal, when Olivia (Kerry Washington) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) witness a murder in their ongoing investigation of Catherine Winslow’s (Sonya Walger) case. It is odd for Olivia to be present at a stakeout, but she thinks Jake (Scott Foley) is ignoring her and is trying to stay busy. I really liked the blazer that she wore, it is hard to see, but it is a black and blue colorblock style. Olivia also wears her trademark Monique Pean Infinity Ring and Movado Women’s ‘Concerto’ Gold Plated Stainless Steel Watch ($1979.99). To recreate her look, I found this BCBGMAXAZRIA Women’s Oscar Color Blocked Jacket ($145.92), Rhinestoned Infinity Ring ($2.03) and Kate Spade Gramercy Pave Grand ($149.98):

monica pean

Olivia is at home, drinking her signature wine and relaxing hoping Jake will call, when Papa Pope (Joe Morton) comes by with a bottle of wine. Olivia wears La Perla pajamas ($258) and a Heathered Bruleee Cashmere Long Robe ($495). To get the look for less, try these Women’s Silk Pajamas ($109) and Restoration Hardware Cashmere Robe ($299):


Olivia takes the next step in her investigation by confronting Jeremy Winslow in public and then has Quinn follow him to see what his next steps are. She looks stunning in the restaurant wearing a MaxMara Ella Short Sleeve Coat ($722.39), Sermoneta Sophia Gloves ($280) and Prada Glace Calf Twin Pocket Tote Bag, Natural ($2,350). To recreate her look, I found this G.E.T. Day Coat ($164.99), Ralph Lauren Color Block Opera Glove ($98) and this Michael Kors Jet Set East West Leather Tote Bag ($248):


Olivia and Quinn figure out that they need to find the key to a locker to uncover the rest of the murder mystery. Olivia recycles her Armani Collezioni Single Button Jacket (sold out) and her marble Prada Saffiano Cuir Tote (sold out).To recreate the look, I found a Classic One-Button Blazer ($34.90) and  the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Tote ($268):

armani collezioni2

Olivia finally figures out that something has happened to Jake and then everyone shuts her out. Her only option is to try to get Abby (Darby Stanchfield) to help her. They must have filmed these scenes at the same time as last week’s scenes because Abby is wearing the Dries Van Noten Geometric-Print Silk Blouse ($449) again. This Polka Dot Chiffon Secretary Blouse ($48)  is similar:

polka dot blouse2

Cyrus (Jeff Perry) pays a courtesy visit to Olivia to let her know Jake’s fate. Since he killed Cyrus’ husband he doesn’t seem to care that Jake is being wrongly accused. It is so clear in Jake’s interrogation that Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) is only letting this play out because he is jealous of Jake’s relationship with Olivia. Olivia confronts her father, who confirms her suspicions that Jake is innocent.

Quinn does a little surgery and is able to locate the missing key, who knows where the next clue will lead…

Because of Jake’s interrogation, Fitz misses his daily cemetery trip with Mellie (Bellamy Young) and she freaks out. He finally tells her the truth about their son and she understands why Fitz has been married to his job. She finally pulls herself together and hopefully will make her time in the White House count.

What did you think about this week’s episode of Scandal? Will Jake’s name ever be cleared? What will Mellie get up to next?

Scandal “Like Father, Like Daughter” Recap

The first few minutes of this week’s Scandal were intense. But seriously, where was Olivia Pope (Kerry Washington) when I was in college? Getting the president’s daughter out of a party without a single YouTube video was nothing short of a miracle. Poor Fitz (Tony Goldwyn). I felt bad for him having to confront his daughter in that way. His reunion with Olivia had to wait while he dealt with Karen (Mary Mouser). Olivia wore a Burberry Cloqué Jacket ($2,195). I couldn’t find a blouson sleeved blazer so I found this Puffed-Shoulder Boyfriend Blazer ($27.80) to recreate the look:


Abby (Darby Stanchfield) gets upset when she sees Huck (Guillermo Diaz) and Quinn (Katie Lowes) in the White House which is her turf. Cyrus (Jeff Perry) goes on a little tirade and tells her to get over it and suggests that it might not be very fun to be Olivia. I think this was probably his best speech of the series. Abby wears a Dries Van Noten Geometric-Print Silk Blouse ($755). This Diesel Women’s C-Luceen Blouse ($36.85) is similar:

polka dot blouse

Now that there is a sex tape floating around, Olivia and team have to get to work and figure out who Karen slept with and shut down the tape. Olivia wore an Armani Collezioni Single Button Jacket (sold out). I found this 24 Inch Stretch Cotton Jacket ($54) from Express to recreate the look.

armani collezioni

David Rosen (Joshua Malina) is having second thoughts about using the B6-13 files, but when Jake wants them back, he refuses. Jake forces him to give them up anyways after Rowan (Joe Morton) threatens to kill him.

Olivia also breaks the news to Fitz that she didn’t go away by herself, but with Jake. He realizes that he has failed in all areas and tells Olivia to throw money at the problem so the sex tape goes away.

I loved Olivia’s speech to the Morgan family. She owned that problem and we can see here why she is Olivia Pope and so good at her job (going back to Cyrus’ earlier speech to Abby).

An internal investigator also outs Command’s favorite agent to the President and now he starts to put the puzzle together of what really happened to his son. In a surprising move, the President and Rowan get Tom to implicate Jake in the death of the president’s son. I’m not sure if Fitz just wanted to stick it to him for going away with Olivia or was just blinded by jealousy. In the end, they end up arresting Jake and Olivia is left waiting for him not knowing what happened. She wore an M. Patmos Multi-Stitch Open-Front Cardigan (sold out). This Open Layering Cardigan w/Front Pockets from Merona ($16.79) is similar:

Scandal “Inside the Bubble” Recap

This week’s episode of Scandal kicks off with a breaking news story of the “Killer Cliff Bride.” It’s interesting how this story gets woven throughout the whole episode. The White House staff first watches the story, including Abby (Darby Stanchfield) who wears an L.K. Bennett Lander Fitted Seamed Dress (sold out). I loved this Studio Tahari-Levine Co. Pleated Sheath Dress ($79.99) as a great alternative look:

Mellie (Bellamy Young) takes a personal interest in the story – she can relate. She wore a Theory Trincy Cardigan in Evian Space ($345). This H&M Wool Blend Cardigan ($34.95) is similar:


Olivia (Kerry Washington) is trying to build a new relationship with her father and starts by dropping by his house. She wears her Armani Collezioni Roll-Neck Boucle Coat (sold out) and carries her marble Prada Saffiano Cuir Tote (sold out). To get this look for less, try this BB Dakota Dillane Coat ($85) and the Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Tote ($268):

Pope & Associates takes on a new case for an old law school friend, Catherine Winslow (Sonya Walger). Her stepdaughter goes missing and Olivia is on the case. She looks softer in an Armani blouse and a Donna Karan Collection Drape Front Cashmere Cozy (sold out). This is a great opportunity to look to The Limited’s Scandal Collection with this Ruffle Front Blouse ($49.95) and Shawl Collar Lounge Cardigan ($59.95):

As with most clients, they don’t always tell the whole truth. Huck (Guillermo Diaz) finds a sex tape featuring Catherine and her step-daughter’s boyfriend. Huck wakes Olivia up in the middle of the night so we get a good look at her La Perla pajamas (Top $420, Pants $310). These Victoria’s Secret Afterhours Satin Pajamas ($69.50) are similar:

la perla2

Things get nuclear when the step-daughter is murdered and Olivia thinks that Catherine did it. Abby comes to see her and find out what’s going on, but Olivia won’t tell her anything. Olivia wears a Giorgio Armani Zipped Knit Jacket ($1990.07). This Tahari Quilted Zip Front Jacket ($90.29) is a great look for less:


Mellie has gone overboard with the killer cliff bride story and has assembled her own meeting with the top experts in Washington, much to Abby’s chagrin. Nobody will listen to her objections about how Mellie may have gotten a little carried away. Abby wears a Sportmax Chantal fitted dress ($690.41). I liked this Land’s End Women’s Sleeveless Pattern Woven Wear To Work Sheath Dress ($99) for a similar look for less:


A few highlights from this episode included, Jake (Scott Foley) and Olivia’s awkward dinner with Command, Abby coming into her own and finally making Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) learn her name, Cyrus (Jeff Perry) comprimising his integrity to get some action, Quinn (Katie Lowes) finally calling out OPA for not caring about what happens to her, and Catherine getting arrested for killing her stepdaughter.

Scandal “The State of the Union” Recap

This episode kicks off with Jake (Scott Foley) and Olivia (Kerry Washington) discussing booty calls, but before they can finish the conversation, she gets a political booty call from Cyrus (Jeff Perry). Cyrus blackmails Olivia into taking on a new case. Her running attire is classic with a Criss-Cross Hope Jacket from Athleta ($118) and Run: Inspire Crop II from Lululemon ($86).


This week, Olivia is trying to bring together a couple who hates each other. Unfortunately, they are the face of gun control that the president needs at his State of the Union address. She is dressed to handle a challenge in a white Double Breasted Jacket by Giorgio Armani (not available online) with a white Prada Saffiano Cuir Tote ($2,950). The Limited’s Scandal Collection has given us this Double Breasted Jacket ($168) to recreate this look. I liked this Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Tote ($298) to replicate her handbag:


The couple’s fighting escalates and Olivia finally convinces them to get a divorce and make this appearance at the State of the Union their last one. She looks powerful in The Limited Tweed Peplum Jacket ($168) and her marble Prada Saffiano Cuir Tote ($2,950). The Michael Kors Jet Set Travel Saffiano Leather Tote ($298) comes in grey which is another perfect look for less:

I loved Mellie’s (Bellamy Young) dynamic with everyone this week. With Fitz (Tony Goldwyn) and the fried chicken and then Abby (Darby Stanchfield) giving her a pep talk. Fitz’s speech was chilling and amazing and him and Mellie were great. I wonder if they will ever get back together…Her dress was red and powerful for the State of the Union. I found this ASOS Wrap Pencil Dress In Crepe ($66.33) to recreate it:


Olivia finally gives in to a booty call with Jake and wears some very sexy boots which are the Valentino RockStud Boots (sold out). I found these Charlotte Russe Over-the-Knee Belted Chunky Heel Riding Boots ($46.99) if you want to get some sexy boots of your own:


Cyrus is heading down a slippery slope with his new “friend.” He made the right decision for now, but we will see where he ends up.
