Who’s That Girl? Rosemary vs. Mindy

Every week(ish) Amil Niazi styles the Robber mannequins and then takes you on a sartorial spirit quest, finding the stories buried in the silk and wool. Check out her modern fairytales and then vote for your favourite!

Oh okay I know. I’ve been negligent. I’ve been Leaning In TM. But look at us, here we are, dressing mannequins, talking to each other, voting on outfits. Let’s go!

Rosemary

Awwww cute! Isn’t it just so cozy to put a turtleneck under a sweater? It reminds me of the year 1992 (AD) when I was 10 years old and thought the height of sophisticated comfort was sticking a soft black tneck under my fave hybrid sweater/sweatshirt and then rolling to school like whoa. Rosemary gets that you can continue that kind of whimsical and comfortable dressage long into adulthood. Do I think Rosemary drinks tea? Yes. Do I think she owns at least one cat. Uh yeah, big time. Does she looooove Beyonce and always makes a big deal about it? Gross, probably. But! is she a really good friend who will always bring you soup when you’re sick? Ya man, you bet. Rosemary, you’re a pal and a confidante and if you threw a party, invited everyone you knew – you would see the biggest gift would not be from me but I love you anyway and thank you for being a friend. (Sessun B Boys sweater, $175, Filippa K soft jersey roller, $129, and wool flannel skirt, $219).

Mindy

Some people know that cozy comes in all different shapes and sizes – cozy is as cozy does! Sweaters are an obvious choice. Anyone can be a snuggle bug in a sweater duh. But challenge yourself! YOCO (You Only Cuddle Once). Mindy’s like, ‘Sweater? Please.’ She makes a silk shirt look as chill as a red Roots sweatsuit (TM) (Lean In). I think what I like best about Mindy is how even though she never spills anything on her clothes (like avocado or coffee or hot thai chilly soup or peanut sauce or chip crumbs just as totally random examples) she acts like someone who does. You know what I mean? She’s so fresh and so clean but if you’re all, “Minders do you have a Tide 2 Go?” She’s just, “Yeah obvi always, I’m a mess!” And even though you know she’s straight lying you appreciate the no-judgement zone she’s creating at your workplace. Word, Mindy. Word. (Sessun Lazy River 2 pants, $209, Samantha Pleet verdant blouse, $275, Cursive Design Squaredancer necklace, $260).

So who won you over this week, Rosemary or Mindy? Scroll down for the poll!
