The Man-Repeller's Guide to Shopping Online
If your best guy friend doesn't understand why you own harem pants--much less, why they're actually cool--you'll identify with Leandra Medine's hilarious blog, manrepeller.com. It's a diary of her unfailing devotion to high fashion, her willingness to try edgier looks, and...how her oufits are received by the opposite sex. We've asked her to blog for us all week on Lucky Right Now.
After the past week of posts that have chronicled the joys of Man Repelling, I speculate you're starting to sympathize and identify with the entire concept. Suddenly, you're overcome by excessive anxiety. Where will I shop? What will I do? Fear not, fellow Repellers. While I cannot act as your moral compass,I can offer you an elaborate boutique directory, nailing the top five e-tailers that will inevitably support your Man Repelling tendencies. From luxe to less, let's get cracking.
1. Forward by Revolve. Rick Owens, Tsumori Chisato, Gareth Pugh, Kimberly Ovitz...holy Man Repeller! The high concentration of sartorial contraceptives that are available at Revolve Clothing's higher-end online boutique, Forward Forward will get you in the man repelling spirit faster than you can say harem pants. The prices are steep, but fear not. Forward offers some of the best sales on the interwebs. Good for you, bad for your man friend.
3. Pixie Market. For quirky cape dresses, full Navajo skirts, outrageously large harem pants and Martin Margiela inspired jumpers, look no further than Pixie Market. I'd be impressed if you could find anything man-getting in their entire online inventory.
4. Shop Nasty Gal--otherwise known as the budget-conscious mecca of man repelling (no hard feelings, Topshop, this is an e-tailer guide)--will direct you toward ready-made turbans (though I do suggest you DIY your own), a large slew of birth control glasses, and diatribe-inspired duds that will help you relive Arabian nights as best they can.
5. Shop Cuffs is a small online boutique I found via Le Fashion. With picnic table-inspired maxi skirts, raccoon-inspired infinity scarfs, high-waisted shorts, and drop-crotch pants, acquisitions from Shop Cuffs will function as sartorial contraceptives just as well as, say, a Thakoon feathered skirt--but for a fraction of the price. Looking badass doesn't have to cost an arm and a leg...
Maybe just your birth control. Happy shopping.
