Hi.

Welcome to my blog. I document my adventures in travel, style, and food. Hope you have a nice stay!

LEADING LADIES


Sitting down at the end of a long day and watching my TV shows is a favorite ritual of mine. I will watch any show once and am a sucker for so many of those shows that got canceled (Mixology was one of the best)

As many people have noted recently, women as leading ladies have become more and more of a trend. So much so, that nearly all the shows I watch have a female main character. Not only are their roles inspirational (doctor, lawyer and White House problem solver) but their clothes are pretty great too. Here are three of my favorite ladies and their fashion style:

Mindy - Mindy Lahiri from The Mindy Project has my dream wardrobe. Her clothes are bright, oftentimes patterns, mixed with graphic prints like polka dots and stripes. She frequently wears Kate Spade and Bauble Bar. Nearly everything in her office and home is from Jonathan Adler. There is always a little wink in her clothes--a strawberry blouse or a clutch that says something funny.

Alicia - I just recently started watching The Good Wife and man did it blow me away. It is such a smart, well-written show. The main character, Alicia Florrick is a strong lady who balances going back to work with her family and her politician husband (and throws back a few shots of tequila now and then). I think that her make-up on the show is perfect. That make-up artist should win an award because her smokey eye is alway on point. She also wears some beautiful suits and shows that you can dress formal at work without being stuffy.

Olivia - Unless you have been under a rock, in a cave somewhere, you probably have heard of Scandal. Olivia's wardrobe is so covetable that The Limited made a collection inspired by the show. I think their designs are ok but I prefer to take her styling cues and develop my own shopping list. She's a big fan of wearing white and throwing on a long pair of leather gloves. She's also always got a power tote in tow with all of her world saving essentials. Olivia is a big fan of the popcorn and wine dinner. Those glasses are oftentimes sold out at Crate & Barrel because everyone wants to be like Olivia. Who wouldn't?
