on the street: the tweed peplum jacket

On January 15, 2014 by theseventhsphinx

Can I just dress like Kerry Washington on Scandal, please? With a splash of dressing like Kerry Washington in life?

[Lyn Paolo, the Scandal stylist, is a bit of a genius. Interesting (well, you know, interesting to me. To people who are into closets and the things you put in closets) tour of the Scandal closet with Kerry Washington here.]

Can we all just?

Well, at least one of us can. The boots are not Olivia Pope*, admittedly, but the jacket is spot on.

*If you are not following this because you are not watching Scandal, you really should consider watching Scandal. It’s on Netflix! Just watch season 1, episode 6, OK?

I love me a bit of tweed. The peplum is a feminine touch here, and the mini cape overlay is just the kind of embellishment I like on a jacket. It’s slightly formal and just beyond what is strictly, functionally necessary. I begin to want a jacket very much along these lines. The seed is planted.

Posting the profile shot so I can point out this woman’s ridiculously long and awesome lashes.

Inspiring, no? Maybe it’s time to dig out those fake lashes I got to play with a while ago.
