You know what that means, freaks and geeks. Repellers on a budget…rejoice! The beginning of new seasons will always mean new clothes and while I’m typically one to hop on the sell-your-kidneys-on-the-black-market-so-you-can-own-that-jacket train, there’s nothing wrong with deciding not to sacrifice basic human rights e.g. three meals a day for the sake of fashion. In fact, you can have both. Enter none other than our very favorite, Mikkat Market! With their current huge-ass sale and enormous new stock of goodies, I thought right now is as good a time as any to share with you my most recent conquests. And while I don’t have photos of myself in said conquests to show at this time, I figured it’s better to share the wealth before it’s gone. Yeah, I’m respectful. A model citizen, if you will. 

A good season always starts with the right white blouse. Summer transition to fall called for the theyskens’ theory short sleeve rendition of the mullet tank and the fall to winter transition will be echoed by some sleeves, pockets and that meme mullet. $29.
…Besides, she wears it so well.
And after the perfect white blouse has been found, comes a search for the perfect over-piece. Isn’t shopping such a vicious cycle? …Cue the cracked leather shearling coat displayed above. I’ve seen renditions of this jacket executed through the last few seasons but never in a proper long version that will cover the, you know, tushymctush.
 And now, as you can suspect…
With the perfect instruments north of the hip, decent bottoms are further than due. If you read my blog attentively, you know I am on a serious sparkle trip, so I’d obviously gravitated toward this mini-win, that will work most perfectly dressed down, or up, with Peter Pan collars, thick sweaters and shoes that look like vaginas. $45, people. And the quality is grand.
I shouldn’t have to reiterate this, but, no look is complete without an arm party, and now that Mikkat is doing accessories, you don’t have to sell your arm to gain the contents! Hip, hip, hooray! And finally, I grab one last bit, because it ain’t the holiday season without a little red dress...and since the teal version of this very dress had been such a hit last season (cue: this post,) I went for the gold and snatched this one.
I’ll admit, I was hesitant: why own two of the same dress? But then I scrolled down the webpage just a bit…
And, well, I want to do that too. I know, I know. She has those Balenciagas. $89. Shop Mikkat here.

    Is this (sort of?) inspired by that tumblr post Kelly Oxford wrote (that REALLY doesn't apply to all the readers of this blog, i tell ya!) that "called you out" on owning expensive clothes??

    "I'm in debt b/c MANREPELLER.COM is guilting me into buying 500$ shoes" makes nada sense. How about instead of buying a 200$ bracelet or whaevs, you find a cheaper alternative? HUH? POLYVORE EXISTS PEOPLE! If everyone shopped within their means, this cray (not a typo, i've been listening to Watch The Throne all day) "Occupy Leandra" shizz wouldn't be happening.

    On that note, thanks for guiding us to less expensive repellermarts. But seriously, rest assured that YOUR BLOG ISN'T PUTTING PEOPLE INTO DEBT. Just had to repeat that to point out how absolutely ridic' that is.

    Great shearling jacket…it's sold out :(

  • http://www.blogger.com/profile/17437605523067624099 Marissa E.

    Mikkat reminds me of Meat Cat. (30 Rock reference, anyone?)

    Don't worry, that's a good thing.

    The shearling coat is awesome.

    My newest obsession is second-hand fabulosity. Recycling has never looked so good. Let the movement begin.
