Ask Alexis: Where can I find Olivia Pope’s white coat?


Darlings, if you’ve been looking for fabulous white coats similar to those worn by Scandal’s Olivia Pope, IT’S HANDLED! While I can’t offer you any deals on the gorgeous Burberry Prorsum coat she wore earlier in the season (which sells for about $2600), you can check out these options at a retailer near you:

Military: Ecru Military Coat by White House Black Market, $248

Cape: Colorblock Wool Cape by Banana Republic, $225

Trench: Michael Kors “Cassandra” Belted Trench in white at, $134

Shawl collar: Jessica Simpson Double-Breasted Shawl Collar Coat in off white at Von Maur, $162

Wrap: Michael Kors Belted Wrap Coat in winter white at Victoria’s Secret, $158 (originally $198)

Double-breasted: Via Spiga Double-Breasted Wool Coat in winter white at Belk, now $159.99 (originally $280)

Convertible: RACHEL Rachel Roy Wool-Blend Boucle Convertible Coat in ivory at Macy’s, now $159.99 (originally $280; sale price ends 12/2/13)

Since Kerry Washington is expecting, I hope she’ll break out something especially amazing and over-the-top to cover her bump, like this voluminous, scultptural Armani Collezioni Wool Drop Shoulder Coat in antique, $2675 at Saks.

Happy shopping!


The look for less: Olivia Pope’s ‘Scandal’ sheath

Have I mentioned my obsession with Scandal before? No? Well, from the plot to the characters to the fashion, I’m definitely a gladiator!  And as such, I’ll be tuning in to find out What the Huck and Who Shot Fitz when Scandal returns to ABC tonight at 9 PM.

In the meantime, I’m in love with Liv’s ivory and lace confection of a dress as seen in the ‘Happy Birthday Mr. President’ cliffhanger. The Michael Kors ‘Cady’ sheath is simple and elegant, with its wide black lace sash and ladylike length. It’s also sold out, darlings.  However, you (and I) can recreate the look with this lovely Tahari ‘Jess’ sleeveless crepe dress, featuring a black lace applique at the bust (which carries over to the back of the dress). It’s available at Belk, Dillard’s and on

Hint, hint.

Best Dressed: Kerry Washington

Scandal star Kerry Washington glows in this lovely Christian Dior Pre-Fall 2012 cocktail dress with applique detail at the PaleyFest Fall TV Preview Party in Los Angeles.  We are absolutely sighing over the hem length (just right!), the satin sash (not too precious) and the silhuoette of this dress.  We also love how she brought in a bit of texture with the snakeskin bag, and kept her hair and makeup soft.

Though Ms. Washington accessorized with bare legs and black pumps, you could also wear it with opaque tights as the temperature drops, as seen in the editorial.

Kerry Washington returns to tv as “fixer” Olivia Pope on September 27!
