My Mindy Project: Week 2

Hello lovelies, the end of the week is just so close! I'm on my second week of My Mindy Project and I just want to emphasize how excited I am to do this. Everyone says how close they felt to Mindy after her book, and these little cards just let you get to know her better!

Here's the card I'll be focusing on this week:

On the back she talks about finding her prom dress at Cache and how that eventually led to her love of all things leopard print. A little part of me cringed as I read it. You see, the question this week is:
"Do you think leopard has developed a certain sophistication over the years, or is it still reminiscent of Carmela Soprana?"
I can already see myself putting my foot in my mouth but I have never liked leopard print. For whatever reason, this is the first thing that pops in my head when I think leopard.

I think I can largely place this blame on the face that I grew up in the 90's when Lisa Frank was the coolest thing imaginable. 
So out of fairness to Mindy (who will never see this and would probably hate me if she did), I decided to try my hardest and put together some kind of outfit with leopard print.
I think I would be able to handle it in the muted colors, I had one outfit with the bright oranges and black that was just too much of a personal eyesore.

Mindy's second question is:
"What about other animal prints? What is your stance on feathers?"
I've been okay with zebra for awhile now, never in clothing, but I've done a few crafts with it. Which makes no sense to me, maybe because I can't find a Lisa Frank version for the life of me.
As for feathers, I find them quite awkward. Don't get me wrong! I adore printed feathers when designed properly. I've even made a few myself. But something like this, I don't think I could ever do.

Come back Sunday to link up with us for The Polyvore Files!


  1. I love feathers and feel if you can pull it off to do so! I have a pair of heels that have feathers on them but unfortunately I don't get to wear them enough!

  2. i hateee leopard print. although the lisa frank leopard is too cute, ha!
    it`s funny though because i`m the same way with zebra print! i like it, but not to wear. weird!
