Andrew and I have been down in the DUMPS since we finished Downton Abbey and Homeland and were in search of a new show to feed our hobbit-like lifestyle of late (who needs to go out when you have sweatpants and a sectional?)  Enter House of Cards. Holy hell, we are full on addicted.  Like, we get super psyched if our social plans get cancelled so we can watch more episodes.  One of the best parts of the show is Claire Underwood, played by Robin Wright.  She is a take no prisoners tough lady who dresses as such and makes me think “I need a  black trench coat, like, YESTERDAY” and “why don’t I have the bone structure (or balls) for a pixie cut?”

Nothing she wears is earth shattering.  It’s clean lines, mostly black, white and grey, but that simplicity and the flawless fits remind us that fashion does not always have to be an in your face statement.  Understated elegance is always beautiful.  It’s hard to find pictures that capture her looks, since a lot of what makes her looks so fierce is her attitude while wearing it. Half the battle folks, carry yourself with confidence and you’ll look ten times better.

Perfectly tailored LBD and YSL bag. Of course.


The haircut!


The black outwear. It’s divine. Terrible shots, but trust me. That first one is a SPOILER for me as I’m only on episode 7, but I can;t wait to see it. :)


She adores a square/scoop neckline sheath. Work it.


Fancy times require the same silhouette sans sleeves


Business Claire and Off Duty Claire.

Even her running outfits inspire me! I’m all “I need to go running!”


Get the Claire look like this:
