Capitol Chic

“Murder, She Wrote” Series 1 – Episode 11
“Capitol Offense”
(Post 2 of 4)

In this episode, Jessica looks even more stunning than usual, in her role as congresswoman.

The first ensemble she sports at the Capitol is composed of a bright red shirt, like this pretty one by Mango, or this simple one by La Redoute, or – if you want to treat yourself, this short sleeved blouse by Ralph Lauren or this long sleeved one by Hugo Boss.

The bright colour of the blouse is perfectly complemented by her usual string of pearls, like this silver one by John Lewis, this vintage necklace at a bargain price by Etsy seller The Fine Vintage, this freshwater one available at House of Fraser, or, of course, the real deal by Tiffany’s.

Her two piece suit with pleated skirt could well be black, but to me looks more navvy blue, so my choices are still this 1990s wool suit by Etsy seller Lynda Tracy Allen, this 1980s navy suit by Etsy seller Leila’s Love, and this 1980s crepe jacket suit by Etsy seller Big Yellow Taxi Vintage. This vintage 50s suit by Etsy seller Alley Cats Vintage is also totally adorable.

Jessica seems to be wearing brown court shoes, like these simple ones by Kiomi, or maybe these by Bata, or these by Bagatt, matching her trench coat and briefcase, which is similar to this gorgeous vintage Samsonite by Etsy seller The Retro Beehive.

The second day, Jessica looks even more gorgeous in a powder grey ensemble with a splash of brown. (I particularly love the screenshot above!)
It is proving a real challenge to find something similar, but I am working on it!

P.S. Londoners… you know about THIS, right?

PPS. I know it has been a long time… but I haven’t given up on this blog as yet. X

    Thanks for the post. I love Jessica’s choices; not too dressy but just perfect to blend from afternoon to evening. The interview in London is fantastic. She looks so lovely and isn’t wearing a scarf !!! Keep the images coming. I save them all. mary ann
