What I Wore: Today, I Semi-Repel

jacket: 3.1 Phillip Lim, sweater: The Kooples, t-shirt: T by Alexander Wang, pants: J Brand, shoes: Superga, bag: Valentino
Not sure (once again,) why I have this unusual idea that you might want to see what I look like when I’m semi-repelling on Saturdays, but in the event that you do, voila. While I’m certainly not leather on leather on leather on…leather full on repelling, a studded bag, snow leopard, sneakers, and an usual smile x glare in the eye may perhaps accentuate my inherent MR gene better than the FUPA hiding underneath my white t-shirt. And the prehistoric bone that lives beneath my ankle. I’ll explain another time. Table for one, please.
  • Lol, I love this blog! So funny 🙂 Keep on man repelling girl! & awesome bag 🙂

  • wow wow i love this jacket its gorgeous !


  • The jacket… swoon!


  • well i for one like to see you in a non man-repeller mode and that jacket is gorgeous 🙂


  • That bag is gorgeous nonetheless, who needs a man with so many beautiful clothes, really?

  • I LOVE that bag and jacket! I don't suppose it's quite so Man Repelling, but the neck brace chic scarf definitely brings up the Man Repellingness (is that a real phrase?). I'm loving this outfit!


  • I love that jacket so much!

  • Love this! That jacket is awesomeeee 😀

  • that bag is so gorg!!

  • I love that your head almost looks as if it's not attached to your body. And the luggage–I mean purse–is a bit…awkwardly large for what you have going on.

    You do know that you're a very attractive woman even in your man repelling outfits.

    Looks like you're stopping the traffic…what would happen if you wore your full-on MR outfit, I wonder?

    Denim + Cotton

  • Doesn't matter if you've got leather FUPA or if you're wearing Herve Leger; I can't take my eyes of that bag.

    Color me jealous.

  • That's an abnormally lady-like bag for you 😉
