Style Crush - Mindy Kaling

Greetings Stripers!
     It's my 27th birthday, and I'm in a contemplative kind of mood. I'm reassessing who I am and what I want out of life, as well as little things I can do to make big changes seem less daunting. One of my goals this year is to be the most authentic version of Brittani I've been yet. This is the year entirely free of other people's expectations, advice, and mental static. I am going to be the most genuine version of myself I possibly can, and to help that spirit permeate throughout all areas of my life, fashionwise I'm going to challenge myself to embrace ladylike sophistication.
      I have a lot of really fun clothes that I don't plan on abandoning anytime soon, but I'm going to add a little polish to my panache; not quite Charlotte of Sex and the City Fame, but more like a superimposed version myself or Brittani ². In the spirit of this new venture, I'm going to give nods to women whose style and confidence I greatly admire by periodically showcasing a style crush!

I can't extol her virtues enough! I am not one of those people who confuses the character in a TV show with the real person. I don't know her personally, but I'm convinced she and I could be BFFs in real life.

            Crushworthy Trait #1:
             Girlfriend knows how to rock multiple prints like its her job! 
I've developed minimal comfort with two, but as you can see here she pulls off three without a problem 
( plus a texture on her purse for all you overachievers out there).

Crushworthy Trait #2: 
Color is her friend!
 She doesn't seem to trap herself within a particular color palette or family

      Crushworthy Trait #3
She never misses on the red carpet!
Short or long, daring or classic, curve hugging or voluminous, she always looks like a Glamazon.
I love that she doesn't Spanx herself to death and experiments with shape while looking flawlessly elegant.


 The many faces of Mindy were the reason I thought about starting this style spotlight, and don't even get me started about Dr. Lahiri's cute outfits on the Mindy Project! I look forward to seeing where her inspiration takes me this year!

Who's you style crush? 

If you have suggestion for ladies you'd like us to profile, give us a shout out at horizontalstripes4eva@gmail.com 

And for those of you who are wondering, we'll have some outfit posts coming soon, as soon as we can feel our toes again after this week of crazy weather!

Until next time,

P.S. Did I mention this is what my hair look like in the morning? Sans birds, and just a bit curlier of course:
