My recent tv obsession is Veep. Maybe it's because I live in DC and see the executive building on my way to work every day, but I just love the sticky situations the Veep (aka Vice President, Selina Meyer, played by Julia Louis-Dreyfus) gets into. It's really a hillarious show.

So today, my inspiration comes from the ladies of Veep: Selina Meyer, Amy Brookheimer (played by Ann Chlumsky from My Girl!), and the oh so funny Sue Wilson.

The Veep


ASOS pencil dress, $47; Zara shopping tote, $80; Forever 21 jewelry, $5.80; Kenneth Jay Lane drop earrings, $40; Forever 21 chain necklace, $5.80; Belt, $33; BareMinerals lip gloss, $18; LAUREN by Ralph Lauren, $55

The Veep is all about style. In fact, stylists on the show modeled the veep's style off none other than Michelle Obama. She loves her  statement jewelry and has a classic DC style, with a twist. That's why I chose this red shift dress with the added touch of a scalloped neckline.

Nine West plaid suit, $129; city pocket shirt, $40; Zara shoes, $50; Longchamp tote, $98; Charter Club pink jewelry, $25; Beaded brooch, $39

The Chief of Staff on the other hand is all about the power suit. The great thing about her, though, is that she'll pick a great suit with an unexpected element -- like the plaid print on this gray suit. Amy is very practical. So I could definitely see her owning about 5 different pairs of these pumps in brown, nude, and black. I think Amy is one of those women that doesn't want her clothes to distract from the powerful, intelligent woman she is, and I totally agree with that. (but I had to add a little brooch just to satisfy my need for bling)


Veep. Sue.

Print dress, $35; Dorothy Perkins strappy sandals, $49; Hurley tote handbag, $40; Drop earrings, $32; Dorothy Perkins peach jewelry, $17; Kenneth jay lane jewelry, $30; Forever 21 lip gloss, $1.80

Veep: Has the president called?
Sue: No.

I love Sue. She is so sassy, and her style reflects that quality. She tends to wear prints and statement earrings. So, I feel like she would absolutely love this outfit, minus the random bow on the dress. She'd get rid of that asap.

My absolute favorite thing about this show are its powerful women characters with leading roles. It really is an inspiration, and I hope it continues to be an ongoing theme on HBO and other major networks. 

Readers: What are your thoughts?

I think you did a really good job with the outfits for all three ladies. I love these characters and the show too! I'm sure the president will call eventually, lol.
