I don’t know about you, but I am one of the biggest fans of the notorious TV series Scandal. It is not the drama, thrill or mystery I am anxious to discover with each new episode, but what Prada or other famous designer bag Olivia Pope is going to wear. Just in case you are not a fan of this television series, I will enlighten you. Kerry Washington plays Olivia Pope and she is like the ultimate fashion guru. For me, every new episode is one of the “50 Shades of Prada” that Kerry Washington unveils for us.
Due to her perfect fashion sense, these days, Kerry Washington is a real style icon for all carrier women that enjoy beautiful clothing and luxury accessory. She shows us how to look feminine and professional in all aspects and moments of our lives. Of course, she has a fortune to spend on designer clothes and bags while we don’t. But the important thing here is to learn from here, what and how to wear. Now, getting back to her “50 shades of Prada”, who watched Scandal, knows that she has a thing for Prada purses. She has a ton of these very expensive purses and she clutches them around like they’re her “white hat”- fans will know what I mean by this. Take the Prada away and Olivia is Nada.
In the TV series, Kerry Washington carries very elegant tote or satchel bags, simple, but not boring. Her Prada purses are mostly Twin Pocket Tote or Saffiano Lux Tote. She definitely likes large handbags, hung on the crook of her arm.
The first time Olivia Pope wears a Prada bag in “Scandal” is in the second episode in Season 3. The bag from the below picture costs about $2,500, but of course there are numerous affordable Prada replica bags that you can find online for just a couple hundred dollars. Also, this purse is the same one that was worn by Meryl Streep in the movie “The Devil Wears Prada”. The bag was sent by the Prada company from their archives in Italy. It was a bold move that started Kerry’s passion for Prada bag and brought the brand back in our attention.
In the episode “Countless”, Olivia is wearing a Prada Saffiano Classic Tote priced at $2,330. Just imagine, she picked out this very model from a room full of 20 purses and this model was an instant hit with her fans as well. The funny thing is that the Purse wasn’t among the ones that her stylist prepared for the show. It was the very same handbag that the stylist was wearing at that moment. Yes, girls she just took the bag away from her.
The third one is another $2,330 Prada Saffiano Classic Tote, but in a different color…because you just can’t have too many Pradas. This purse was showcased in the episode called “Pick one”. Pretty suggestive, isn’t it?
And in the episode “Say Hello to My little Friend”, Kerry Washington introduces us her little new friend: a third Prada Saffiano Classic Tote in white at $2,400.
This $1,290 Prada bag was the guest star of most of Season 1 and Season 2. This black leather purse was a sensation and it represents the basis of our delightful “50 shades of Prada” by Kerry Washington.
Also, in Season 1 Olivia grabbed our attention with this purple Prada bag at $1,550. She literally forgot about her neutral colors wardrobe and shocked us with a colorful luxury accessory.
In season 2, episodes 14 and 20 we meet another Prada bag priced at $1,800- spacious and fashionable. Just the perfect bag for Miss Olivia Pope!
So there you go ladies, these are the “50 Shades of Prada” by Kerry Washington. As I have said before, I’m not rich so I definitely cannot afford a Prada purse, not to mention all of these. This is why I have my own ways of indulging my lust for designer bags. I opt for Prada replica bags. Of course, the fake purses I buy are carefully chosen and almost in all cases turn out to be exceptional handbags that look gorgeous and feel very authentic.
