Sartorially offensive style. Witty writing. HUGE social media following. Leandra Medine is the one and only Man Repeller. The infamous blogger, fashion darling, and now author, will be at Holt Renfrew Bloor Street on Thursday October 17th at 5:30 to celebrate her first book, MAN REPELLER: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.
A collection of awkwardly funny, sarcastic essays about love and fashion, MAN REPELLER (the book) chronicles the just married, 24 year old fashion wunderkind’s life, who stayed true to her roots by naming each chapter after an item of clothing.
Our day is not over until we’ve sought out and fawned over @ManRepeller‘s outfit via her Instagram, blog or twitter. And we’re not alone! Now it it’s fourth year, Medine’s blog has won the heart of an often fickle industry and attracts a whopping 1.5 million unique visitors each month!
It’s no wonder, really: the girl can rock everything from drop crotch shorts and gold lame bodysuits to couture gowns. We love how she effortlessly mixes items from big box brands like Zara with Big Name couture for a look that’s chic and playful with a hint of whimsy.
Plus, Medine singlehandedly coined the term ‘arm party.’ Girl invented a new word! She’s basically Fashion Shakespeare. Get thee to Holts!
