So, I’m trying my hand at man-repelling* today, on purpose. If you listen to my fiance, (almost) all my outfits are man-repelling LOL – but today, I’m conscious of it. The moment I put this skirt on at MOSS the other day, I proclaimed “this is SO man-repelling!” – ask Sari, she was there 🙂 But I love it. It’s so fun – and “interesting.” And I think I can pull it off. It feels good, and fun, and care-free, and easy (=Grechen), so I used up my credit at the consignment store and went for it. And since I never actually had a pair of Girbaud jeans in the 90’s, I felt like it was time I owned something from the iconic brand.
Obviously, it’s voluminous and has a bubble hem, so I’ll always balance it out with something fitted on top, and it looks best with HIGH heels, but I tried it on with flat sandals, and it wasn’t awful. I’d like to add a belt, but I don’t have one that’s quite appropriate for this at the moment.
What do you think? Man-repelling? or not?
*I give TOTAL and complete credit to Leandra for coining the term “man repeller” – she is genius & hilarious.
