Do your clothes repel men The blogger who blamed her disastrous love life on her fashionable wardrobe
22:43 GMT, 12 August 2012
New York blog Manrepeller.com, written by fashion obsessive Leandra Medine, has taken the fashion world by storm.
It focuses on the sort of absurd trends women love but men loathe — such as bow ties, mannish suits, full-length jumpsuits and, yes, clogs.
For Medine, 23, the Man Repeller look is about ‘outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive mode that may result in repelling members of the opposite sex’.
Glamorous bride: Fashion blogger Leandra Medine on her wedding day in a Marchesa dress and a white satin jacket
Ironically, Medine started the blog because of her own disastrous love life — but, as soon as she stopped worrying about male attention, true love came along.
Or, rather, her then on-off boyfriend realised this was the only woman for him.
True to form, at the wedding, the bride wore a Marchesa dress with wild tiers of tulle at the bottom and donned a white satin jacket.
