The Lifestyle of Man Repelling

Man Repeller is my all time favorite blog. I discovered it my senior year of high school and I think it was really important for me to—number one—become more interested in fashion in general and—number two—realize that it was one hundred percent okay to dress for myself and myself only. You can read all up on what a Man Repeller is here and if you feel so inclined as I did this morning (it's also just entertaining to read the choices, so why not?), you can also take a quiz to find out if you're a Man Repeller or not. I'm a semi-repeller, which I can deal with. I don't really have the funds to full fledge man repel yet, but someday soon I hope.

I have two pairs of floral harem pants (both from J. Crew) that are in my top ten favorite purchases of all time. They're comfortable, they match multiple lipstick colors I already own, and they are probably my best example of man repelling clothing. They're not form fitting, they aren't exactly the most flattering pants in the entirely see (read: they don't show off my nonexistent bum and kind of give you the illusion of a bit of stomach chub if you don't stand up straight), and apparently they aren't exactly loved by men? I don't know, nor do I care, so therefore I wear them every opportunity I get.

This specific pair of pants was purchased last summer when I was shopping with a guy friend (we were shopping for him, but I can't help myself sometimes). I already had a shift dress and a pair of dress pants in the same print (just with a green background rather than navy blue), so I figured I might as well pick up a pair of the harem pants for good measure. I asked him whether or not he thought these pants were the ugliest things he had ever seen and when he said yes, I grinned widely and took them straight to the counter, whipping out my debit card and prancing away happily with my first official pair of man repelling clothing.

Bear with me as I still haven't mastered the art of self-timers (I swear, I'm going to take up my friend's offer to take blog photos for me this summer!!!) and also I still cannot pose for the life of me. Most of these pictures are what other people would consider outtakes, but I am just that much of a spaz that I do these things on a normal basis.

And here are a few reasons as to why I am not allowed to take pictures while "Black Magic" by Little Mix is on.....

Did you take the Man Repeller quiz? Where do you rank?
