Because It’s Saturday

And maybe you're not sure what to wear

Zoom

And maybe you’re not sure what to wear. Got plans? Me neither! Why not a hounds-tooth blazer (playing this game where I see how many times can I wear this blazer before it starts to smell like stale chicken, so far I am at ten times) over an oversize plaid blouse, ripped jeans and gold loafers? For me, the outfit methodology essentially asks: why not wear precisely what I wore all week, only now with a big fat smile and ambitious tap dancing shoes, (hold the tap, substitute a performance stage in Monaco to denote relation to the late Frank Sinatra, or something)?

I know what you’re thinking, and yes, I would be honored to cut your hair.

Stella McCartney blazer (though this mens’ Ben Sherman version puts up a fantastic fight), Dries van Noten blouse (I like this J. Crew one, too), Paige jeans (they’re just like Cher’s clogs. Give them time to break in), Tod’s loafers. Photos by Naomi Shon

    Did those jeans come “pre-holed” or did you cut the holes yourself? I want a pair like that, but I am nervous to take scissors to fabric! I am too tall for jeans that com with holes. They always end up being more on my thighs than me knees. I smell a tutorial….

      They came pre-holed but definitely grew bigger as I wore them/learned that you haven’t lived until you’ve spent 20 minutes a day squatting.

    Sis: where do you do your photo ops – especially the ones where youre prancing in the middle of the street – where there are NO PEOPLE ?
    I was in NYC last weekend & there were F’ ING buttloads of ppl — EVERYwhere/ALL the time.

    Where was this pic taken? And, where is everybody ?!

    • Guest

      Let us consider the shadows for a moment. I’d say most photos are taken before 8 am, perhaps 7 am.

  • Sarah E

    love the outfit! i dont blame you for wearing that blazer until it smells like chicken, its actually a great piece

    Thank you for validating my somewhat recent tendency to dress like my boyfriend’s Irish grandpa, (even to the bar, where it keeps the creeps away and attracts the right sort of friends.) Have a great weekend!

    I’ve been wanting to cut off my ponytail and now am tempted to offer it up on your ceremonial chopping block with a certain curiosity about how one (you) would dress for such a ritual (occasion).

    I know this should have been posted here a million years ago, but I just now received my Man Repeller Glossybox (and that’s just because I live in Brazil), and I have to say: that red lipstick CHANGED MY LIFE. Seriously Leandra, I love you for that. Thank you SO MUCH.

  • dani

    when I was seventeen I loved to wear my boyfriend’s all ripped jeans with a very expensive pair of loafers. I’m talkin about the 80′s and the people in my little town looked at me in a very strange way… Love your sense fo humour and pardon my English.

    I gave my tween nieces your blog site because one niece in particular is interested in fashion. I wanted her to see a woman who is confident and loves fashion for the sake of expressing herself almost as an art form. Not for other people, not for men, for herself. I felt it was the best way for her to begin her self exploration of fashion and see it in a way that isn’t harming but confidence building…..thank you.

    Can you write an article about your photographer and how your relationship is together and perhaps on a co-dependence level? How does she help transfer your Man Repelling ethos to digital?

    You always know what I am thinking, yes I would like you to cut my hair!!!

    This happens to be one of my favorite outfits on you; definitely befitting for a ManRepeller!

    You’re such a 90′s bad boy with the hair and the plaid! You are on some Johnny Depp stuff right now, sister. You’re conjuring images circa 1993/ circa now.
