Today’s sale PSA: some more great Nordstrom Anniversary Sale picks: Halogen calf hair pumps, now $60 (my favorite are the tan leopard and the berry + they’re a manageable height for work), a gorgeous two tone Vince coat, perfect as a soft fall/winter layer, now $450, and my personal favorite, a great Coach leather duffle bag in three colors that you can even wear crossbody, now $240. A super classic style! 

For those suffering from Anniversary Sale fatigue, I also found a very cool camo field jacket from Velvet, now 30% off, a very pretty, floaty peasant dress from Free People, now 30% off, and some awesome metallic “Wave” pumps from Nicholas Kirkwood, now 55% off. 

One of my favorite TV shows currently running (which I’ve also recommended on the blog), is Veep, starring the fantastic Julia Louis-Dreyfus as Selina Meyer, the Vice President of the United States.

Veep Season 1

I love Veep because it’s a very funny, sometimes brilliant show which also has great fashion (especially for those who have more formal workplaces). I remember reading an interview with Veep’s costume designer, Ernesto Martinez, where he stated that Selina was a politician who was self made, wealthy. and not afraid to show it – always a fun attribute to have when it comes to a character’s wardrobe. Accordingly, there are some great pieces and fantastic jewelry.

Veep has had three seasons so far, and it was fun to watch them again and see how Selina’s wardrobe evolved throughout. This week’s post will focus on season one. Enjoy!

One of the first looks we see – this great form fitting red sheath dress. I love how flattering it is on her.

I found one very similar from Nicole Miller (you can adjust to neckline to make it more demure).

Paired with the dress? Of course a delicate, and stunning layered necklace.  The most famous iteration of this of course is from Tiffany “Diamonds by the Yard“. I also found a version from Kate Spade for under $130.

Onto the next episode. A classic black dress which reminds me a lot of Black Halo’s “Jackie O” style.

You can find a great gold necklace like Julia’s from Marco Bicego, or one from Ralph Lauren for under $70.
