man re pell er [mahn-ree-peller]
The above quote was taken from one of my favourite books, Man Repeller by Leandra Medine. I have been a huge fan of Leandra for years, I always loved that she dresses for herself rather than caring what anyone (especially men) thought of her, I think it is something we should all do more. If you are going on a date, for example, dress to make yourself feel beautiful/ sexy, not for whoever you’re dating to admire; self-confidence is always more attractive!
If a jumper could be the embodiment of man-repelling then it would be this one. I picked it up at a kilo sale in Leeds a couple of weekends ago when my flatmate, Sasha, and I went to Leeds for the day to do some shopping. I was initially drawn to it because let’s be honest, it is quite ugly, but there was something which I also liked about it, maybe it’s the fact that it looks like a parrot, but I think it is really cool.
