The Man Repeller
It’s true: Women dress for other women; they never dress for men.
A 21-year old journalism student who lives in NYC with her parents, Leandra’s dubbed herself “The Man Repeller” thanks to her appreciation for turbans, drop-crotch pants, excessive layering, fur, jewelry that looks like weaponry and what she’s dubbed “birth control glasses,” among many other fashion decisions that have ruled out the possibility of ever attracting a guy. Written with hyper self-awareness and an acerbic wit, The Man Repeller is a hilarious account of a girl who just can’t help herself when it comes to fashion. She knows that her choices can be ridiculous, but she’s powerless to the man-repelling fashions of “Alexander (No) Wang” and Martin Margiela.
