House of Cards season 3 trailer

I can already see sh*t ALL will be done on February 27th. Truth be told, don’t think I would do it for anyone else but Kevin Spacey.

I mean it took me about a week to finish the last season of Orange is the New Black. So you know, not super excessive?

But if there will be anyone who will force me to go balls out and watch something in a couple of sittings, it will be Frank and Claire Underwood.

*Sigh* Any snacks suggestions?

How to Get Away with Murder

Dear ladies and gents,

so. Shonda Rhimes has got me again. With her How to Get Away with Murder. Yes, I know she is just the producer and Peter Nowalk is the dude behind the show, but this has Shonda’s fingers all. over. it.

It’s ridiculous. Absolutely bloody ridiculous. ALL the cliffhangers. I mean – come on! And ALL the flash forwards. And ALL the smart interns who will stop at nothing to win that damn trophy. And then there is Annalise Keating. Who is scarily brilliant at her job and never loses, but her personal life is a bit of a mess. What with the cheating husband and the now ex detective boyfriend and the crying and the pleading and whathaveyou. And then there are all these other characters and it’s kinda hard to keep track of them all… and… and…

BUT…

The thing is all of Shonda’s shows start like that. Remember Grey’s back in the day. Remember Scandal.

In the beginning I’m all like this bastards and bishes all be crazy and what the what is going on. And then a couple of episodes in I realize I’m hooked and I can’t stop watching. *sigh*

See, Shonda knows. Shonda knows how to get us hooked. Resistance is futile.

Scandal fashun

Dear ladies and gents,

a while back I got hooked on Scandal. It has all the components of a great TV show – a strong female lead, storylines that were at time frankly ridiculous (but I gobbled them up anyway) and plenty of cliffhangers that kept me coming back for more.

And now just like that – I have gone off it. Don’t ask me why, I am a fickle bish that way (I suspect it has something to do with How to Get Away with Murder, because SO.GOOD. Ridiculous, but so good).

The outfits though are still top notch.

In September the Limited launched the Scandal collection. It is a collaboration between Kerry Washington, Scandal’s costume designer Lyn Paolo and the Limited head designer Elliot Staples. The collection has 78 pieces and you are suppose to mix and match it with the stuff already in your closet.

I don’t understand the wide legged pants, because hm the fit is a bit odd? but that coat is sooo pretty (I don’t think I’d dare to wear it, because I would spill something down my front for sure). Also that white suit? Hm no, not happening unless I suddenly start to hover above ground not touching anything. Don’t have a clue what the fit is like though and based on the product description the collection *does* seem to feature a lot of polyester?

Truth be told I think these designer collaborations are a bit of a rip off? Take Isabel Marant for H&M for example. From that whole collection there was one coat, one top and one pair of sweatpants that I liked. The rest was meh at best. So I think the same is applicable here?
