Now you can dress like Scandal’s Olivia Pope (on the cheap!)

Thank the Lord for the internets. Today I just found out that American retailer The Limited has launched a capsule collection inspired by the ultimate lady boss Olivia Pope of ABC’s Scandal.

My fellow gladiators know Liv has one of THE most enviable wardrobes on the small screen — Ferragamo, Armani, Prada…the list goes on. Now us regular Soulcialites can get in on the fearless & fashionable action. The only downside is Limited doesn’t have stores in Canada so we can’t do try-ons but they do ship internationally (for $24.50).

We gotta give the Limited’s team credit for not just throwing a bunch of pastel suits and big coats together and calling it a day. They’ve designed the collection with Scandal‘s head costume designer Lyn Paolo, and Olivia herself, Kerry Washington.

TV show inspired collections don’t often hit the mark (see Pretty Little Liars, Gossip Girl, and Mad Men) but in this case, me thinks the issue’s been handled.

THIS WRAP COAT! Quintessential Olivia Pope and so on-trend for this upcoming season. And those leather opera gloves? On sale for $56 right now.

While the dupe is nice…that Tom Ford on Olivia. I’m weak in the knees. #notworthywhite suit

I want this dress. Except I’m not sure it’d be very forgiving on the belly. Particularly on television…
