Man Repeller

Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.

by Leandra Medine

The Man Repeller was probably the first hugely popular fashion blog. I was an intermittent reader at best because, even though her aesthetic didn’t appeal to me, the concept of embracing your personal style even if it repels men was kind of funny. This is not a style guide, but rather a fashion biography of sorts where Medine uses articles of clothing as chapter titles and jumping off points to tell the high points (mainly surrounding love) of her life thus far. 
Her sometimes wacky “I Love Lucy” style anecdotes that take her from her first crush in elementary school to joining the adult job market are at once endearing and annoying in a Carrie Bradshaw kind of way. Medine’s clear devotion to fashion are what kept me reading long after I decided that I couldn’t relate to her at all.
