A Magical Style Standoff

Leandra Medine | July 12, 2011

Hey Repellers! I just made sangria. With my mom. We put ginger ale in and it is delicious. Delicious, I tell ya. Scrumptious even. But my expert bartending skills aside (you see, I am one literally and sartorially,) I have a very important important question to ask you. All of you. Each and everyone. And it has to do with eyeballs and what you put over them should your vision suffer the consequences of lacking le 20/20 appeal. Are you ready for it? 

Okay, fine.
Who wore it best? Who!

 Good Ol’ Harry! Man, I am timely.
Yes sure, he’s holding a wand, acting all macho, like he might cut you if you don’t choose him in this epic contest of human sorts, ya di ya da, ya da wa but…
I don’t see any simultaneous arm and neck parties on him! Do you? Do you? Didn’t think so. 
 Choose wisely, oh …wise… ones.

    @sarahsilly – it's not a shirt, it's a maxi dress from Aritzia, a canadian store that just opened up a branch in Soho! I know because I own it!

  • I'm pretty sure the Olsen twins are into magic because their brands Elizabeth and James and The Row are very bewitching. Magical spectacles. =)

    Haha. You look Trelawney-ish. With better hair, of course. 😛

  • OOOH i love the eddie borgo x j crew necklace! so gorgeous i love new updates on pearls, you look lovely as usual! i vote for you.

  • Joy

    Love love this!

  • Harry Potter wins for sure. *ahem* I can't help that I'm an addicted Potterhead. But I really like your glasses, but I'm being biased so…


  • Obviously you! Loving these pics.

  • Kate

    You and your cleavage, of course!

    Your soo cuute! 😀
    I loove your necklaces and your top! 🙂

  • Haha so awesome. The Harry Potter glasses look so much better on you 🙂
    Absolutely love the necklaces, looks great!

  • Harry Potter wore it best hands down.

    *scrolls down*

    Well, on second thought…

  • I LOVE the top and the bracelets!

  • S

    i actually love those glasses. i want, i want!


  • Neck and arm parties always win.


  • what a silly idea! i love those glasses, the frames are very unique!

  • I say you win 100%! do you think I'd get extra repelling power if I wore glasses like that? all glasses make me look beaky as hell, like some kind of angry eagle! I love your neck party particularly!

  • s

    So fresh the glasses…. hihihi
    love your top 😉

  • Has to be you, right? Harry is so stuck in a style rut.

    And he has to rely on his wand to repel.

    And that isn't a euphemism.


  • You look much better than Harry Potter!! Beauty white dress…


  • It's hard to choose but you look lovely in your glasses.

  • Great glasses ! viva sangria !!!


  • your arm candy and dress are splendiferous.

  • pretty sure i just saw those spectacles over at cupcakes and cashmere too. E&J; are on fiiiiiiiire!!


  • Arm Party!!! AND THE PEARLS !!!!

  • I'm sorry but I'm going to have to go with Harry on this one. I just love him to pieces (almost as much as I love Ron, actually thats a lie Ron all the way)

    Fashionable Collections

  • sorry MR, but in my mind, harry wins every time <3

  • I choose you since your necklaces and dress are the bomb!


  • Sorry, but Harry Potter definitely wins ANY contest. It was brave of you to challenge him though!

  • Harry wins this duel. He, by virtue and by naturally-attributed gender, is a HELLA-man-repeller. Whereas in that sex-pot of a dress you got on, you my friend, are an unintentional man-getter. I am a so sorrreeeeeeee!!!! (the preceding statement is best repeated loudly in a Chinese accent)

  • You would kick Harry's arse any old time.
