You’ve heard of a man repeller, right?

It, according to  Leandra of the blog Man Repeller, is “outfitting oneself in a sartorially offensive way that will result in repelling members of the opposite sex.”


She lists harem pants and boyfriend jeans as a few examples. I’d like to add capes to the mix. Because if there’s one thing that’s going to baffle the opposite sex, it’s draping yourself in shapeless blue plaid.


And this particular piece of shapeless blue plaid is vintage, which means there’s some old lady out there whose closet repelled this man repeller.

Well, gentlemen, it’s my turn.

P.S. Have you heard? We’re giving away a silver necklace (that isn’t even close to being a man repeller).

    Bahahaha. Yah, i’m pretty sure that guys don’t understand 95% of what us girls wear. If we throw on a CLEAN pair of jeans and a t-shirt they’re impressed. ;)

    Cute post.. and lovely vintage cape m’dear!

    Love this! I wore harems the other day and my friend’s boyfriend said they were man repellers. Regardless, I love them. And, I love your cape. It’s a cool shade of blue. I know there’s some guy out there who appreciate a woman’s style!

    Clearly I repel men. Well it’s a good thing I already have one (a man), who gave me the harem pants!

    You’re hilarious! Love the spin you put on this entry.

    I can vouch that harem pants are indeed man repellers. I was told by one male friend that I should burn my pair! I still love them, they are so comfy but I have agreed to never wear them in said friends presence again.

    I think the cape is adorable. Girls mostly just dress to impress each other, more than guys anyways.
