Descriptions du produit

Revue de presse

"These essays establish Medine as not just a fashion wunderkind, but a clever and engaging storyteller who's not afraid to laugh at herself." --Publisher's Weekly

"...the utterly likable Medine comes across vividly and sincerely in writing what she loves." --Booklist

"In a strong, consistent narrative voice, Medine displays wit, unabashed openness and a knack for weaving seemingly superficial, materialistic details into essays that are rich with sly wisdom and the colorful personalities of family members and friends. Humorous, insightful and sometimes-sparkling essays that will appeal to readers interested in the pure fun of fashion." --Kirkus Reviews

"Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She's a terrific writer." --Joan Rivers

"Leandra is a sick, twisted fashion addict and guess what? There is no rehab. As this book shows, she is doomed to be stylish and groovy and hilarious for the rest of her life." --Simon Doonan, Barneys New York ambassador and author of The Asylum

"Leandra wears her wit as well as she wears her denim bib overalls. But at being repellent, she is a colossal failure." --Laura Brown, Executive Editor, Harper's BAZAAR

"Through Leandra's growing pains and dating disasters, MAN REPELLER reminds you that your outfit always plays the best supporting role in your life." --Kelly Oxford, New York Times bestselling author of Everything is Perfect When You're a Liar

"A classic love story of a girl and her clothes, Leandra Medine's MAN REPELLER is as funny, smart, and adorable as she is." --Julie Klam, New York Times bestselling author

Présentation de l'éditeur

Silk parachute pants. A gold lamé jumpsuit. Ankle boots with fringe. Were these fashion-forward items sending men running in the opposite direction? Maybe, but Leandra Medine never cared.

Slipping into drop-crotch shorts and a boxed sequin blazer in the dressing room of Topshop in downtown Manhattan, a brokenhearted Leandra had an epiphany. Looking in the mirror, she suddenly realized she didn't have a boyfriend because of the way she dressed. And the more she thought about it, the more she realized that such outfits said a lot about her life-romantic and otherwise.

Now, the acclaimed blogger and fashion darling recounts her most significant memories through the lens of her sartorial choices. With her signature sass, blunt honesty, and some personal photos, Leandra shares details of the night she lost her virginity right down to the pair of white tube socks she forgot to take off, as well as when and why she realized her grandma's vintage Hermès ostrich skin clutch could hold much more than just keys and a cell phone. Through it all, she proves you don't need to compromise even your most repellent qualities to find your way into that big white dress (and an organza moto jacket). See? You can have your yeti and wear it, too.

Showcasing the singular voice that has won Leandra millions of fans, this book is a collection of awkwardly funny experiences, a sweet love story, and above all, a reminder to celebrate and embrace a world made for women, by women.

If you are a fan of her blog, I definitely recommend this book. This is a great collection of short stories which are all related in some way. You can either read story-by-story intermittently or read it all at once--it's brilliantly written and very entertaining.

3.0 étoiles sur 5 Couldn't relate 7 avril 2014
Par Toni Campbell - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format:Format Kindle
The Man Repeller was probably the first hugely popular fashion blog. I was an intermittent reader at best because, even though her aesthetic didn't appeal to me, the concept of embracing your personal style even if it repels men was kind of funny. This is not a style guide, but rather a fashion biography of sorts where Medine uses articles of clothing as chapter titles and jumping off points to tell the high points (mainly surrounding love) of her life thus far.
Her sometimes wacky "I Love Lucy" style anecdotes that take her from her first crush in elementary school to joining the adult job market are at once endearing and annoying in a Carrie Bradshaw kind of way. Medine's clear devotion to fashion are what kept me reading long after I decided that I couldn't relate to her at all.

The only negative thing I can find to say about this book is that its finished. I'm devastated. Smart, funny, honest and real. Plus, there's unique fashion sense that's perfection. Leandra, keep on being you. And oh...write more.

It was funny and interesting, not the most compelling book I've ever read but quick and fun. Fashion lovers and fans of her blog will like it but I didn't loooove it.

I didn't know much about her before this book. Now I think she is brilliant and hilarious. I saw her out once while I was reading it and didn't have the guts to tell her (mostly because I had just read intimate details about the loss of her virginity) but I wish I had told her I think she's a genius.

Wow - I was laughing!
It is a collection of short stories, but somehow they are all connected - I love that each story start and end with a garment, but involves a personal story and a point of view.
