When I think about fashion I relate it to a having it all; the misguided notion that a woman has to be either smart or beautiful; powerful or pretty and not both is just sad and quite frankly demeaning. I believe you can be fabulous and fearless and you do not have to compromise who you are as a woman to fit somebody’s expectation of what power looks like. Yes you can be both successful and fashion-forward without sacrificing one for the other. And who else screams sexy and in-charge better than The Olivia Pope. As she has proved ever-so-memorably she’s got this office fashion game handled!! Olivia’s power dressing is best exhibited in her statement coats. I can’t tell you all the times that she has given me coat envy!
I am a firm believer in the words ‘fake it till you make it’ because let’s be honest it’s not every day that you wake up feeling all super woman and ready to run the world! There are days when my confidence and mood need a little shock treatment and one of the ways I do so is by wearing one of my confidence exuding pieces in my closet. There are certain statement pieces that command an audience and require an attitude to much. This cape coat being one of them. There’s no way you can wear this and still look defeated and down-trodden.
So in this look a la Olivia pope I am channeling my inner gladiator in this commanding camel cape atop a form fitting long sleeved dress for their unmatched confidence-boosting powers.
