Finding Overalls. What’s is gonna be?

GRAND CENTRAL spine white

Before we resume regular programming, a quick interlude for humble bragging.

Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls is now available for pre-order. And, look, I’m not going to tell you that you have to read it but I am going to say that you should. Why? Because (1) if you already hate me, it will fuel those emotions, thus making you a more passionate individual than you were previously. (2) There are stories about all kinds of weird things like seer sucker bermuda shorts and the ankle length white socks I forgot to take off the first time I was engaged in sexual intercourse. Above is the book’s cover.

You can buy at: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, or IndieBound

Also, though, in news that is actually worth reading, this incredibly powerful piece from The Atlantic on the vigilance we must evince in light of the explosion at the Boston Marathon. We are praying for Boston.

    ok, now those are the first overalls i actually would like to GET.IN.MY.CLOSET. congrats on the book lady.

  • http://www.fashionsnag.com/ Fashion Snag

    I love the cover. I think you look beautiful! I immediately tried to guess which shoes you were wearing underneath the overalls and I’m guessing the Charlotte Olympia raffia wedges. Either way, can’t wait to read your stories.

    Cool cover, fun title!

  • a Parisian reader

    CONGRATS! WE IN PARIS ABSOLUTELY ADORE YOU LEANDRA <3 looking forward to reading your book. You're the first fashion writer I've found, so far, who manages to be funny, clever, crazy at the same time. You make fashion sound more intelligent. It's a relief to have you on internet as an "antidote" to other so-called brilliant fashion bloggers who are so full of s***

  • Lefukaka

    SEPTEMBER???!!! HOLY FLAMINGO PETE THAT IS F*&^ING FAR AWAY. AHHH

    Can’t wait to NOT buy your book. Maybe if you would’ve been nicer to my friend and I when we both met you on different occasions I would feel inclined to make you more rich. I wish all of your praiseful readers knew just how pretentious and serious you actually are as a person.

    Ps. Go ahead and delete this comment. I apologize for not seeing the world through your asshole like everyone else on here.

    • Desiree

      i don’t care if Leandra is a b**** in person.
      She’s f****** great on this blog, enough for me.

    • Sabah A

      This saddens me.

    • Claire

      Wow someone has a serious grudge against a stranger.

    • Jamie Kurtz

      Were you as lovely when you met her as you are on here? I met her outside a restaurant in the east village a month ago and then saw her again at Coachella this weekend. While I dont often agree with or care for some of the content/her style on this site, i have to admit she is really sweet.

    • Andge

      I get the sense that Leandra genuinely values her readers but I don’t think it’s fair to expect her to get wild every time she hears that she has them.

    • Belinda

      How ridiculous one can be, how can one NOT like Leandra?
      I saw her at an event and she went out of her way to be nice to me even though she does not know me… she makes a point to be extra nice to her fans.. you have a problem girl .. go check your head!

    • =^..^=

      “…maybe if you had been nicer to me …”

      whatever the circumstances of your encounter with Leandra may have been & even if you felt she should’ve been “nicer” to you, you come across as a petulant brat.
      grow up.

  • Samantha

    Thanks for the link to The Atlantic article.
