Our focus this week at Queen Anna House of Fashion is centered around the theme of individuality and the beauty that lies within being truly authentic to yourself. We are highlighting American actress, writer, producer, and comedian Mindy Kaling, whom we consider to be an individuality powerhouse; as she is confident in her skin, and visibly owns who she is through her work. Individuality is one of the core values we aim to instill in everyone that walks through our doors, so it is fitting that we highlight an icon that places that value at the forefront of their craft as well.
Some of Mindy's projects include the movie A Wrinkle in Time, which stresses the theme of valuing individuality over conformity, which we think is so important when it comes to feeling truly confident, and owning who you are and what your style is. Mindy Kaling also starred in her own series titled The Mindy Project on Hulu, which follows Kahling as she navigates her world as a gynecologist as well as her personal life. Even her on-screen characters invest their time in making women feel safe, healthy and empowered, which makes her an inspiration to us here at Queen Anna House of Fashion. Mindy Kaling has used her platform on several occasions to vocalize her passion and support of young people influencing the status quo of the country. She was quoted at the Harvard Law School's Class Day gathering that "[young people] are responsible for the language of justice, young people take words and turn them into infrastructure that keeps our world stable..." Mindy's words say all we need to know about her value system, and we respect her use of her platform to invoke change wherever she see fits.
We have chosen to highlight Mindy Kaling for all of these reasons and more. Shop some of our favorite Mindy looks that we have re-created with a Queen Anna House of Fashion twist.
Our first look includes the Taylor Jay Wrap Skirt/Dress which can be worn as a strapless or halter dress, or a skirt! We have also added the simple Commando Cami Top which we knotted at the bottom to add some flare. We accessorize this look with the Sancia Babylon Bar Bag, the United Nude Raiko Sandals and some gold jewelry including the Janna Conner Fionnoula Circle Drop Earrings, the Chan Luu Birthstone Necklace, and the Mod and Jo Emmy Bangle.
Our next look is created using one of our favorite designers and brands Bano eeMee in the perforated leather jacket, paired over the Maison de Papillon Lily Sweater. We use the tailored Gravitas Susan Plus Size Skinny Crop Pant to complete the look. We add the Tony Bianco Latoir Sling Back Heels and the Tah Bags Envelope Mini to add a classic finish.
Our last look is perfect for summer! We use the Taylor Jay Collection Ali Dress paired under the Amanda Uprichard Grandpa Shirt, which we have knotted at the bottom to give some shape and interest. We use some classic black accessories including the Sol Sana Marisol Heels and the Sancia Gigi Mini Bag. We add some gold accessories including the Janna Conner Wiley Wide Textured Ring, the Janna Conner Cristabel Geometric Chandelier Earrings and the Collections by Joya Jordan Freshwater Pearl Cuff to elegantly complete the look.
