What I’m into this week – Turning into Lindsay Funke

So, for those of you who have the audacity to not get an obscure name drop of a character from a TV series several years ago that was only lucky enough to get a cult following who was outraged at it’s cancellation but not big enough to save it from the decisions of the big bad network executives, Lindsay Funke was a character on Arrested Development, a little known, but awesome dysfunctional family comedy drama from 2003.  In the show, the Bluth family has a business that is failing due to unethical and illegal practices perpetuated by George Sr., who is in jail for said practices, and a whole host self serving family members, most of whom end up living in the home of Michael Bluth, the one family member who somehow managed to eek out a sense of decency and moral obligation (but is not without his own flaws).  Lindsay is the fashion obsessed, self-centered, flaky sister of Micheal Bluth.  In almost every episode, she finds a way to wriggle some money out of someone, go buy a dress, and when she gets told to return the dress, she whines about her self esteem and often takes up a humanitarian cause (or goes to get her hair done) to console herself.

For a while now, I have been “into” fashion and clothing.  I started watching What not to Wear when the kids I used to nanny for were napping, and then I gradually started pushing myself outside my comfort zone when making fashion choices (in very small ways), and then I discovered Polyvore.  Since I am now unemployed, I have watched 2 or 3 seasons worth of what not to wear in about 2 months time, I have become a daily poster on Polyvore, I have been shopping on a regular basis and I dress to impress myself every morning, even though I generally have nowhere to go and nothing to do; I even am vaguely aware of some current fashion trends and have tried to apply them, In my own unique way.  Despite that I don’t have a huge cash flow, I bought 2 pairs of shorts, a vest, a dress and 3 pairs of shoes in the last week… at least it was all on sale. I even got up this morning, put on a skirt, tried to make the outfit fashionable, fixed my hair, put on makeup and painted my toenails, despite that I am probably going to be sitting in this chair all day. I am soooo Lindsay Funke now *sigh*.

But at least I look cute 😉

Fashionable "colorblocked" boho outfit for... staring at the wall and maybe going to the grocery store.

…and I could think of worse things than being able to compare myself to a character portrayed by Portia Di Rossi.
That’s the obsession for this “week”.  Let’s see what I get into next time.  You aren’t the only ones who will be surprised and dumbfounded… I always am 🙂
