Happy Birthday, Man Repeller

Leandra Medine | April 29, 2011

Holy moly me oh my! I know, I know it’s Royal Wedding time, yadi yada yada but it is also my blog’s first birthday! This little nugget is but a year old! Let’s come together now shall we, and hand on over (pun) a round of applause (pun) for the hostess with the mostest, the website with the …bedsite…, the jester with the nester, this shit, a quick hit!

In light of the humbling and exposure that my little old blog has experience in the last 12 months, I thought it important to buy it a really rad first birthday gift. 

And so a rad first birthday gift it did receive. I deemed a neon Proenza Schouler runway dress the perfect arm candy for my URL.

More important than the gift of Proenza–and blogging–to myself though is the gift I have slated for all one of you because we did this together. There are no stats, no Google Analytics without you crazy culottes and thus, we will celebrate The Man Repeller in unison. Unison I tell ya. So now I offer you the gift of perfectly constructed Blazer:

It’s pretty fly, no? Sweet shoulder pads keep our worsening scoliosis a secret and the little layers of silk add a much needed element of more is more is more is…more. And here’s the most important thing of it all: the collection from which the piece stems was inspired by a tornado. A tornado! This speaks volumes to our aesthetic as we are all sartorial tornadoes.
There are a multitude of ways to wear the blazer, you see…
For Day:
tee: T by Alexander Wang, shorts: Cut25, flat sandals: Derek Lam
For Night:
t shirt: Kain, leather shorts: Club Monaco, sandals: Miu Miu
As a Getter:
Yowza! bustier: Parker, skirt: Charles Henry, shoes: Brian Atwood
And obviously, as a world renowned Repeller:
blouse: Equipment, jeans: J Brand, shoes: Christian Louboutin
You deserve to, like me, prance around town, cock blocking in all the fantastical ways your little heart desires. And while all of you can and should, nay, will, one of you will do so with the blazer.  
Here’s what to do:
2. Leave a comment right here with your name and e-mail address
3. I will announce the winner, Monday morning at 10AM on my Facebook page so you should probably “like” me. Even if you hate me. But I hope you don’t hate me. Because I love you.
4. Do the Hokey Pokey and turn yourself around.
That’s what it’s all about.
CONTEST CLOSED, CONGRATULATIONS JULIA.
Thank you readers, really. I mean it. This is just as much yours as it is mine and I want to take you out for a nice seafood dinner to celebrate. Unfortunately, I’m kosher.
So, here.
  • Happy happy happy birthday! What a great gift to celebrate the big '1'. Well done for having such a successful piece of work x

  • I could live for this blazer. Just live.

    But let's make this about what it truly is… looking forward to our one-year anniversary, which is coming up in a few months! Remember, honey? this is about the first time I laid eyes on your deliciously deviant portal to the New World. I'll be expecting a gift.. something like a painted picture of me on my laptop, checkin' out your sick blog while i stare aimlessly out at the fashion abyss that is my closet. Yeah, abyss.

    (The addition of that jacket would turn any frown upside down, or make any abyss into a bliss. OK that was a far stretch, but i tried!)

    CONGRATS ON EVERYTHING!! HAPPY BDAY AGAIN! 🙂

  • Happy Birthday Blog! HEhe though I was thrilled to see Kate Middleton wearing Sarah Burton for McQueen I think McQueen would have been so proud I will truly miss his designs, but alas we must move on and the dress was gorgeous oh and did anyone see David Beckham…whoA he looked amazing maybe better than Victoria whose pregnant and wearing those heels I think she might be making other pregnant women jealous. How does she do it?

    1. Dear Man Repeller, HAPPY FIRST BIRTHDAY! Please keep on repelling for many years to come.
    2. When I win (Hey, a kid can dream… I never win anything, who am I kidding?), since last tuesday, I DON'T HAVE A FACEBOOK! (just your average teenaged-angst, you know how it is.) I call this social-networking discrimination. What do I do? This is causing me a great amount of stress- in fact, I haven't slept for three days over this… HELP!
    3. What if I told you that I wore black skinny leg pants (that I made myself!), black and white loafers, and two oxford shirts today to school? Am I considered a "repeller". How do you feel about me now?

    Please, never stop repelling.
    p.s. sorry for writing a novel.
