Over the past week I’ve developed an obsession with The Mindy Project. After watching True Detective, it’s been nice to watch something that isn’t about murder (oh, and that actually features a female character who isn’t paper thin and/or dead). Anyway, there are about 5 million reasons why I love The Mindy Project, but right now I want to talk about the clothes. The clothes!
I really and truly hate shopping, and I don’t even like looking at clothes online or in magazines because (astrology comment warning!) I’m a Taurus and I like fancy things, so I generally end up wanting everything I see, getting that gross itchy materialism feeling, and then getting obsessed with things I can’t have and feeling guilty about wanting things that ultimately will not contribute to my happiness or make the world a better place. I’m a really fun person to hang out with, OBVIOUSLY.
But Mindy’s clothes are just such a dream that they’re really bringing out my inner fancy lady. Everything’s so colorful and some of it’s wacky enough to remind me of Carrie Bradshaw’s weirder outfits. She even makes me want to consider pencil skirts again, even though I know that my body type just makes pencil skirts look obscene (the problems of having birthing hips). She’s always wearing sequins and glitter and mixing patterns and I JUST LOVE IT ALL. I mean, just look at this ensemble!
I found this wonderful Tumblr, The Mindy Project Style, that provides links to all of Mindy’s awesome outfits. Of course, this made me realize that everything she wears costs like a million dollars, so I guess I’ll just have to be content with the more colorful things I can find in my closet (like two dresses from Anthropologie, a few things from J. Crew, stuff I’ve had since high school, and a bunch of things from Old Navy even though I always say I’m going to stop shopping there).
