Blogs We Love: The Man Repeller

Sporting looks that all women love and men love to hate, The Man Repeller takes the mickey out of the fashion world- bringing some much needed humour to the fashion world. So what is a man repeller? See below, straight from the mouth of the turbanista herself:
man·re·pell·er1 [mahn-ree-peller]
outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex. Such garments include but are not limited to harem pants, boyfriend jeans, overalls (see: human repelling), shoulder pads, full length jumpsuits, jewelry that resembles violent weaponry and clogs.
–verb (used without object),-pell·ing, -pell·ed.
to commit the act of repelling men:
Girl 1: What are you wearing to the party?
Girl 2: My sweet lime green drop crotch utility pants!
Girl 1: Oh, so we’re man repelling tonight?
*DISCLAIMER: the above conversation is not a drama took place in this room 5 minutes ago.
