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. =)

    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!

    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…

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/08582011619810689271 future somebody

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

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17483514781061716380 Lisa

    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.
