The Olivia Pope Coat

jjp9 - The Olivia Pope Coat

jjp2It has been a while since my last blog post and I am not even going to try and be “fake” with the whole I am sorry for not posting. Because frankly, I am not. I was not out here doing anything spectacular besides living life. I have always been adamant that Comme Coco would be as authentic as possible and I would not post just to post. So I have done my best to stay true to that. I have worn some cute and not-so-cute outfits the last month and some have been documented on my Instagram but overall, I just haven’t been creating content.

I have however been shopping. Well thrifting a whole lot. Ok well not a whole lot but enough. I am in the process of trying to move closer to work so all my funds are wrapped up in that endeavor. I just cannot with that commute from Baltimore to DC every single day. As much as I want to love the Marc train, I just do not have faith in it as a reliable mode of transportation for me any longer. They have tried their best but alas… I am so over you Marc train!

I purchased this coat from one of my favorite Baltimore thrift stores and immediately thought of Olivia Pope. Although I have never liked her style of dress, I do like her classic (with a twist) outerwear choices! This black coat embodies all of that perfectly!

With the impending move, I am also attempting to get a capsule collection going. I want to just stick with the French woman’s basics to a perfect wardrobe and really need to give away most of my current collection. One because I need more room and two because I don’t wear more than half of it. I always gravitate towards the same old same old so I just need to purchase a little more of the same old same old and keep it moving!


With thoughts of this capsule collection I am currently on the hunt for the following:

  1. over the knee black flat boots for those of gal’s with wide calves
  2. heeled knee high boots
  3. nude pumps
  4. white ribbed turtleneck
  5. white turtleneck sweater
  6. navy blue double breasted wool winter coat

and it begins…..
