The Limited and Scandal...

If you follow me on twitter then you know how much I love Scandal. I have been a fan since day 1 and have often altered my schedule so that I didn't miss an episode. If you follow me on Instagram then you saw that last night I attended A Limited Engagement hosted by blogger Keri Henderson. The event was held at The Limited in Pentagon City and boy did they have all of the fashion and sales in tow. Their window was beautiful and really displayed the essence of Olivia Pope's fashion sense. The fact that Olivia's costume designer and head of design teamed up to create an affordable line inspired by her amazing style on the show is amazing!!! Please stay tuned to the show each Thursday at 9 because Ms. Pope will be wearing a few of the items in the collection here and there. Honestly, the only thing that would have made this event better is if we were greeted with a big glass of red wine upon entering (wishful thinking).

I am digging this window

Ms. Pope is a bad mutha shut your mouth... she even has a line inspired by her
The table was beautiful
As soon as you enter the store you are welcomed by everything that is Scandal; that is, in terms of fashion. This event was key for me because I am desperately in need of work clothes. I usually wear jeans daily. I dress how I feel and in terms of going to the 40, my feelings aren't that great (send a prayer up for me). Luckily, The Limited had 40% off of all of their regular priced items and they were giving us an additional 15% off for attending. Now you know that was a win win for your girl!!!

Keri also put on a fashion show which showed off her amazing styling abilities and gave us different ways to wear pieces throughout the store. She showed us how to wear white during the fall, how to mix prints, and how to be fashionable at work. There were giveaways throughout the night for additional discounts and tickets to see the new Zane movie Addicted.

All of the lovely fashion show participants

Although the discount wasn't offered on the Scandal line, I shopped enough and earned several coupons that I can use on my next visit. Here are a couple of pieces that I need in my closet soon.

I gotta have that dress!!! Olivia actually wore the cream sweater already on the show.  
This dress came home with me
Have you all had a chance to check out The Limited's Scandal collection? What are you waiting for? If you can't be an actual gladiator, you may as well dress as one!!! I'll be back in a later post to actually share the pieces I picked up.

I saw it a month after I had gone shopping for work clothes/ they look really lovely online, but i expected the prices to be cheaper, it's still not easily affordable for the everyday day girl, but at least for a few cool pieces yea.
