Mindy Kaling is one of those people toward whom I feel a natural infinity. I cannot wait for another quote from The Mindy Project to come through my Pinterest feed, though I've never even watched the show. I watch interviews with her whenever I can, and I'm a huge fan of the idea of she and B.J. Novak getting back together someday. She's hilarious, brilliant, confident, and honest. I want to read her books. I want to be her friend. She wants a good sister-friend. I would be that good sister-friend. But I digress. Another reason I love her so much is that Mindy Kaling is a fellow girl with curves. She is by no means plus-size, but she and I have the exact same shape, only she's more petite. Shapewise, we're both just shy of being an hourglass and just too curvy to be considered a pear. We're both attracted to cute dresses and high heels, bright lipstick and lots of sparkle. Neither she nor I care overly much what people think about our choice to look like an eager pinata half the time. When I started researching "Mindy Style" for today's post, I basically came away with a style theory that says wear what you want - however many patterns and colors and pieces that is - and wear it knowing you rock it.
Mindy Kaling is fearless and bold and makes my outfit choices look drab and uncreative, and I just love her a little bit. I had to dig deep for things wild enough to go to the level of The Mindy Project. A little neon, a lotta print, plenty of smouldery eyeliner and highlighter to get a warm glow, some dark red lipstick, some extra fabulous. So here's my Mindy-inspired outfit. Thanks, girl, for showing us that being 100% ourselves is the best way to be.
You know what I think my favorite part of this entire outfit is? I was totally wearing the blouse backwards. Which is also 100% Mindy-esque. Talk about coordination.
Also, I think that's BB cream on my skirt. I leaned up against my dresser while putting on makeup. More coordination. I'm telling you, I got Mindy's graceful genes via osmosis.
In my personal style I flip from looking basically Parisian to looking like Elizabeth Burke to doing The Mindy Project thing, depending on my mood. I love putting together this Steal Her Style series because it gives me chances to try new looks. Do you have any more suggestions? Leave a comment below with someone else's style you'd like to see imitated and I'll do my best.
