The Man Repeller

December 16, 2010

I have no idea how I’ve not come across this blog before, but I am so happy that I finally have…it’s genius. Meet Leandra, the hilarious voice behind the blog The Man Repeller:

Ponchos (and “birth control” glasses, capes,
and much, much more) rule The Man Repeller.

The end-result of a step-by-step procedure
aimed at not only getting shot by a street style photog, but
repelling all members of the opposite sex as well.

A party look that, yet again, will undoubtedly
turn off all men while receiving admiration from all women.

DIY Margiela. A sure-fire man-repelling weapon.

You need to visit her site. Aside from the fact that her writing style is beyond hilarious and her DIY’s/step-by-steps are amazing, I actually love her style. I know that more than anything, her site is basically intended as a joke about fashion-crazed women, but I actually kept finding myself admiring how amazingly she pulled together all her outfits.

Which evidently says something about my man-repelling status. I’ve really learned a lot of really useful facts about life from Leandra, like how lucky I am to have tricked someone into being my boyfriend since if I was left on my own to play the dating field, my fashion tastes would undoubtedly lead me into a lonely life filled with cats and turbans. And I don’t even like cats.

Here’s a few little snippets of some of her more hilarious moments:

“Fellow Repellows, I am coming out of my sabbatical for
a short moment because it’sholiday season and I am all about
delivering the gift of words. And weapons. Keep reading.”

“And you thought dressing up as a Christmas tree was out of question.
You see how many birds I’m hitting with this stone? There’s even a hint
of Peter Pan in the ensemble. Here’s to that.”

“Who needs a date when you can just meet me under the mistletoe?
We’ll talk Lanvin and make a toast to turbans.

Look for the well-dressed ostrich; I’ll be waiting for you.
(…but not in a Lesbianish way, I’m straight. Call me!)”

“Set a trend and then incorporate it into your outfit.
I think more people should start layering belts.
Its fun, looks cool, and will confuse the shit
out of the male species,
so I’m going to wear two belts.”

    Ha ha this is brilliant! I don't know why I've never come across her blog either. And I feel lucky too that I've found a boyfriend that actually likes my man repellers. Or at least pretends to like them. Or maybe it's that he likes them now because they repel away other men ha! xx
