Ever see an outfit on your favorite show and then either hit a dead end searching for it online — or even worse —find the piece along with its scary high-fashion price tag? Well say goodbye to your favorite starlet's wardrobes being only a dream, because one of our favorite shows is changing the game.

Starting this fall, a selection of Kerry Washington's on-air looks from Scandal will be available at The Limited stores nationwide. 

 “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it." 

Wide-leg trousers, fun but professional blouses and signature outerwear will be included in the 42-piece collection that will retail from from $49 to $248. “The collection is a nod to our devoted fans, to fans of fashion and to women everywhere who are inspired to boldly pursue their passions and look good while doing it," Washington said in a press release. 

While not every outfit that Washington D.C. fixer Olivia Pope sports in the White House will be a part of the fashion line, costume designer Lyn Paolo will be pulling a number of pieces from the selection, collaborating with The Limited's head of design, Elliot Staples. According to Women's Wear Daily, Washington not only gets to wear the dreamy wardrobe, but helped with the design process as well, "from picking buttons [and] choosing fabrics...It’s been really fun to have a voice at every stage of the production."

The Limited is touting the collection as "the first-ever design collaboration between a national retailer, a top-rated network TV show, its costume designer and leading lady."

Arriving in late September at 250 Limited stores and online, the collection will be based on a neutral palette with a soft feminine color that makes it easy to mix and match to get the most out of your new wardrobe. Now, like Olivia (the character Washington plays on the hit ABC series), you will not only somehow get through your demanding schedule, but simultaneously look fabulous doing so.
