*I do not condone any of the outfits my homegirls are wearing in the photograph below*
Ladies. Women. Sisters/Sistas.
Someone asked me what my favorite blog was. This question, to me, is like asking Jesus who his favorite disciple is. Obviously it’s not Judas, but you get the picture. I can’t choose. But I will bear my soul to you and share my source of greatest style inspiration, because sometimes I get really sick of all the pretty blogs out there where everyone takes cutesy pictures of themselves in boring and predictable outfits.
Let me introduce: The Man Repeller.
Let me clarify: man repelling is not a state of lesbian-hood or extreme feminism (of which neither party I associate myself, but more power to you if you do). Rather, man-repelling is a state of fashion. Leandra, the Man Repeller herself, defines it as the following on her blog:
–nounoutfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls, shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
You know how sometimes you get dressed and your like, maybe trying to impress that super hot guy you consistently run into and this completely changes your outfit selection because you think that he’d probably be more attracted to you in a low cut t shirt than your faux fur vest? Man repelling philosophy tells you: WEAR THE FAUX FUR. And so do I!
Not just faux fur. Wear things that don’t match. Color block Christmas colors (shoutout to you Laura Jane). Wear things 7 layers of clothing. Wear dropped crotch pants. Wear what makes you feel like YOU because when all is said and done, if I were to dress like a Kardashian, I would feel like a Kardashian. Maybe that doesn’t translate. But if it does then I think we would really get along. When you dress, dress for yourself and flip off everyone else who says otherwise.
So here’s to all of us girls out there who are never going to dress like Megan Fox. Let’s all wear bow ties and harem pants tomorrow. And listen to this song really loudly, especially that part that says reap just what you sow. I’m pretty sure that’s biblical, which ties this post together quite nicely because Judas is never the favorite disciple BECAUSE NO ONE LIKE A BETRAYER.
