What Mindy Wore for Love in an Elevator

Mindy learns the hard way this week that you probably shouldn’t take Jeremy’s advice to skip the date and go straight for the good part. Then again, when your first answer to “choose a man you don’t respect” is “Draco Malfoy”, then you probably already knew the one night stand thing isn’t going to work out. Age and being fictional aside, Draco might have been a better match than the new age midwife from the offices upstairs. Although, Mindy learns a valuable lesson: new aginess can cure asthma attacks. Meanwhile, Danny realizes he’s too old for experimental theatre and sushi at 11pm, but he does kind of like Eye Patch.

 

So, when you start wearing a mask like a Batman villian in order to scare off potential murderers at work, you’ve got to stop and take stock.

While my suggestion would have been to work a little less and start watching Lifetime movies at home with some vino, Mindy decides it’s one night stands that are in order.

 

Love in an elevator? Maybe not, but this cardigan is straight up adorbs and her hipster glasses are kind of the best thing ever.

Mindy is clearly an inspiration to us all. That’s the kind of outfit I aspire to and pin to my Pinterest boards under “Cutest Sweaters Ever” and “How to Be Hipster Adjacent”.

 

I also appreciate, but do not pin, her workout gear.

But seriously, why wear normal lycra when you could wear a cheetah wearing sunglasses? (Answer: you wouldn’t). 

 

Mindy clearly takes her pre-planned booty call seriously with a killer evening dress.

I know she doesn’t do this often, or ever, but I feel like she should know better. Sure the black with a lace overlay is fantastic and sexy, but probably not necessary, nor was the fantastic clutch.

 

 

 

I know this because the midwife wore a grey sweater and some kind of pants made from all natural, unbleached fibres.

Those two need to meet in the middle on What To Wear to a Hook Up – a little less fancy and little more effort.

 

While the dress may have been a bit much, we need to stop for a moment and take in the glory that is this Rebecca Minkoff trench coat.

Do you see the leather patches on the shoulders?

Straight up ahmahzing, my friends. I believe her mastery of outerwear is rivalled only by Zooey Deschanel and that is quite an accomplishment for any young woman. I’m glad she’s a doctor on this show, because it explains how she can afford so many amazing coats and an apartment in Manhattan big enough to house them all. Because the trench with leather accents isn’t the only coat I’m in love with this week.

The green plaid on this Tulle Clothing coat is marvellous. And her ability to pair it a bright yellow sweater that has fine cables in it? Delightful. Wardrobe wise, she might be my spirit animal.

 

Eye Patch tries to compete with this cute navy pea coat, but doesn’t quite cut it.

While I enjoy it with the purple scarf and I love the bright brass buttons, it’s not a coat to write home about. But Mindy’s coats? I’m going to pin both to the “Inspired Outerwear” board.
