We were all set to sharpen our claws on this one, but then we saw what the event was and realized that dressing like a grade school teacher was the smartest, most appropriate way to go.
Mindy Kaling attends The Young Storytellers Foundation’s Annual “Biggest Show” in Santa Monica, California.
No, really. It’s not a bad idea at all for her to come to this event with a very toned down, relaxed, practical look. Like she’s ready to sit on the floor and read a book to 6-year-olds.
On the other hand, we’d argue – quite strenuously, in fact – that there are definitely better ways to execute this look. Let’s do that, then. Let’s mentally correct, shall we?
The shape of that vest is kind of awful and we really don’t like the matchiness of the blouse to the pants. Plus the bows on the flats make them look like tap shoes. A less “dental smock” vest, a shirt that provides some contrast, and some simpler flats, maybe with some beading or other kind of less obtrusive detailing, and we’d call this perfect.
Your turn. Play with your Mindy paper doll and tell us what you come up with.
