Repellers on a Budget, Unite!

February 1, 2011

 Marni Pre-Fall 2011 via Style.com

If ever there were a brand that exemplified model man repelling in its’ utmost glory, it would be Marni. If I hadn’t known better, I’d have assumed Designer Consuelo Castiglioni fell in love with a man that used her for sex and as retaliation, she developed a line of clothing that would act as…well…man repellent.

Unfortunately though, she is married. Her husband does however run a fur business which begs the question: does he watch Rupaul’s The Drag Race?

I strive to find a man like him. 

Marni Pre-Fall 2011 

In any case, it should be noted that in the eight years Marni has been around, her collections have celebrated an intentional stray from overtly sexy garments to colorful, shapeless, and sometimes downright offensive-to-man-wood silhouettes. It may perhaps be slightly ambitious to state that she and I preach the same verses but then again…you can’t spell Marni without M and R.

You must be wondering how this has anything to do with Repelling on a Budget. Well…try not to wet yourself (or do, it’s more funny that way) as I announce this, but: 

Marni clothing is running at a whopping 65% off on The Outnet today!
Hooray! Guilt-free RTW to satiate my sex-drive!

Because I am the best blogger in the land a little early to the game, today’s Marni-on-The-Outnet sale hasn’t yet started (sources say 11am EST but who’s checking?) but there are several items looming around the pre-existing Marni tab that could very-well satiate said sex drive.

I’m talking $415 play-suits at $124.

There will be no playing in this here suit. I call it: the solution to Agent Provacateur’s takeover. Talk about alternative lingerie.

…and open-toe knee high boots! In green!

Oxymoronic and counter-functional in all their glory, who could say no to the shoe that will never provide a wear and tear ending.

Looky, looky. Peeky, peeky and keep refreshing that browser of yours. Sartorial freedom is but a few clicks away…make sure to come back here for a look at my picks from the collection later today! Hooray!

Now to return to the most valuable saying of 2010 and now ’11, who needs companionship when you can have Ready-to-Wear?

    I just wanted to note that man-repelling can also be known as mom-repelling since we dont all come from a long line of fabulous man repellers, some of us have to forge our own way. As my mother pointed out to me the other day "I dont know why you have to wear those MC Hammer pants to work Lucy, they just make you look weird" when i replied with "thanks mom but these are LAMB and I know gwen would like my outfit" the blank stare was all i needed, mom successfully repelled.

Perfect. …I'm usually not this crass but you bring it out of me Miss MR. Did you purchase anything?
