Watch: MK x MR

Here’s another collaboration nation for you to chew on: Man Repeller x Michael Kors. Their new store opened just this morning on 61st and Madison and so in celebration of that I worked some of my awkward Repeller magic, if it can even be classified, “magic,” and engaged in a one man show induced store raid to help debut the boutique. Among other things being debuted: my fancy new comb-over. Unfortunately, many of my sweet dance moves, the bits where I befriended mannequins, dismantled their bodies, used the ceramic limbs to scratch my behind and the unusual facial gestures I made that suggested I do not have an upper lip didn’t make final cut. Such is life though and what you will find includes a pretty perfect portrayal of how large, in charge and fancy the new store is. This is likely the most normal portrayal of self you will see so I suppose you can bask in that. Cha-cheers.

Genetic Denim overalls, Michael Kors blouse, blazer and shoes, Vivienne Westwood, MK necklaces. The end.

    If this were a movie trailer I think the tag line would be "Delightfully awkward". And I mean that in the best way possible! Really nicely styled too…and I'm in love with you're overalls.


  • Ms.Fashionista

    I love these vids you keep putting up!! You set up the store super lovely. I have not yet been in a MK store but I must visit! This one looks stunning and so chic. Digging your overalls too.

    Well that's one of the most fucking adorable things I've ever seen :)

    As one of my favorite bloggers and style mentors, I'm disappointed. Though the idea of you dressing mannequins and putting your final touches on the Madison Avenue Michael Kors store is modest and charming, it's also dishonest. Michael Kors INC has a team of hardworking innovative men and women who put hours of their time into the renovation of that store. Your video is cute but please do not take the credit of others hard work.

    What was the song featured on the video? Go Leandra!!

  • Heather Fancy

    Fantastic work. I especially enjoyed the part where you lovingly reassured the mannequin that repelling is, in fact, a good thing. Lovely! xx
