Written by Sara Bauknecht on .

If you crave the kinds of clothes Kerry Washington’s character Olivia Pope wears on ABC’s drama “Scandal,” soon you’ll be able to include some in your closet.

Ms. Washington and costume designer Lyn Paolo have teamed with Elliot Staples, head of design from The Limited, to develop a 42-piece fashion line inspired by the style of the show’s protagonist. The collection will be the first such collaboration between a national retailer and a network television program, its costume designer and lead actress.

Expect separates and outerwear infused with the powerful, feminine flavor fans of Ms. Pope’s fashions will recognize. Pieces will start at $49 and are expected to be available in stores and online at www.thelimited.com in late September.

Which of the looks below would you like to see incorporated into the collection? (Photos courtesy of Disney/ABC Television Group)

Thrillers, fillers and spillers; Container gardening basics

Written by Doug Oster on .

Thriller BlogHere are some easy tips for planting containers. Photo by Doug Oster

Today on KDKA's Pittsburgh Today Live, I planted a container with Kristine Sorensen. The trick is to put a tall "thriller" in the middle, then "fillers" around that and "spillers" to soften the edges.

This is a great time to plant containers, the plants are all on sale. These cool varieties were from Hahn Nursery.
