Thematic Repelling: First Date

Hey! Happy Saturday! Today on The Man Repeller: getting dressed for a first date. Because I’ve changed my hypothesis to read more like, man repelling as a process of elimination vs. man repelling as an effort to stay perpetually single, I thought it might be a good idea to display right here an outfir or two that would serve as a how to: repel on your first date. I won’t lie, I’ve also gotten in several e-mail requests on the subject matter. And thy shall continually honor ye requests…so keeping sending ‘em in. And so, without further adieu, I call this one: getting him ready for what’s in store.
jacket: Isabel Marant, blouse: Iro, shoes: Christopher Kane, bib: DANNIJO, cut-offs: True Religion

Neon-a-thon a la platforms! Tribal prints and shoulder feathers! Hole-y shirt! To rationalize the outrageous (read: better) parts of the outfit, I suggest a pair of denim cut-offs to show some skin, I mean skeeeeeeen. Between you and me though, I’d prefer some harem pants or leopard print high waist shorts so not to trick the date at hand into thinking you have his interest in mind when outfitting your body but then again…at the end of the day, a little fornication never hurt anybody, right? Right? Except, you know, the girls on 16 and Pregnant.

Or…you can try something like this:

blouse: Thakoon, shorts: The Kooples, shoes: Christian Louboutin

You may not say repeller, I don’t blame you, but come on now, when’s the last time matching your bright pink shorts to pink shoes was dubbed socially acceptable? Yes, that’s right, circa 2002 a la Legally Blond. 
Viva Elle Woods!
And Bruzer.

    Elle Woods IS actually a fabulous example of man repeller/propeller, now that you mention it. Hm!

    Those fringe shoes deserve a frekkin' parade!

    i completely agree… give him a little taste of what you really are.. but give him something to drool over. Done and DONE. Except my bf has always just told me straight up.. even when I aim to please him "what the hell are you wearing… you look like ass"… aaaah young love.

    Oh Man Repeller, I think your outfit is more likely to attract men than drive them away … a pink overdose conveys "I am girly and cute and like to squeal at little things" – which, for some reason, men are compelled towards :/

    Hi Man-Repella and Repellas in general, I have a question: what do we do when our repelling clothes are not fashionable anymore? Is repelling linked to notions like fashionable or old-fashioned, the way not-man-repelling-intended fashion is?

    Thanks

    As lazy as I usually am about dressing, I think my boyfriend would be delighted by this man-repelling datewear. All the same, I would love to see a man-repelling take on weddings—I've got one coming up and I certainly don't want to be disturbed while enjoying the open bar…

    How do you walk in those awesome pink shoes without breaking your ankle? Also love the vibrant orange my tea her says orange iw the color of insanity. But if your wearing shorts and showing leg even if it is pink on pink isn't that man propelling. Yep so legally blonde she's man repelling and propelling wt the same time. But how would we get the date if we are man repelling? Are we just suppose to semi man repel and when we get the date do semi and full repelling?

    Ado. Further ado. Unless… I mean, unless it was a play on repelling? Like, without further "goodbye"? I dunno.

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/05465198278209865464 Egilchrist1

    Totally dig the shoes. The whole idea! I feel like when I read your posts, you read my mind/I agree with almost everything you say. If I had a blog, this would be it. Since I don't and probably won't, I will live vicariously through yours. You look great in everything!!

    omg hahha " getting him ready for what's in store" i love you and both outfits. i don't think ill ever be as free and brave as you but i am learning to embrace my inner fashion self/diva. this is 1/4 repelling. we work with one item at a time and then when the relationship gets serious, bamn, head to toe repelling (he should accept if he truly loves me right?). digging the pink and yes viva elle woods! xx

    I call bullshit. What is repelling about anything on this blog? You look hot in every picture. What guy doesn't like long skinny legs in 6 inch heels and flowing, long, straight hair? Man repelling is like baby doll tops and baggy boyfriend jeans and short hair and flats.
