Leandra Medine is an American author and fashion blogger best known for The Man Repeller, a humorous website for serious fashion. Good fashion is about pleasing women, not men, so as it happens, the trends that we love, men hate.

Medine’s first foray into blogging began in 2009, with her first humor blog, Boogers + Bagels, hosted by web-publishing service, blogspot. The blog’s final post was published on April 19, 2010, shortly after the launch of Medine’s second, and most famous, blog, The Man Repeller. Prior to the completion of Boogers + Bagels, Medine had started to incorporate “Man Repelling” terminology into her Boogers + Bagels blog posts, with such articles as “Daily Man Repeller” and “Man Repeller Du Jour” percursing her ultimate transition to The Man Repeller. blog.Medine started The Man Repeller blog in May 2010 as a hobby. The idea for the blog came during a trip to Topshop with friend Rachel Strugatz, now a reporter at Women’s Wear Daily.

To understand what the Man Repeller is about, all you really need to do is get hold of the home video of Leandra Medine playing with her brother at an Upper East Side gym. Their mother is holding the camera. Leandra is wearing, as protection against lice, a shower cap. She is 8 years old, and she says, for posterity, “This is my outfit. Do you like it? If anyone doesn’t … I don’t give a shit!”

Seventeen years later, Medine spends all day telling other women not to give a shit what anyone thinks about their outfits. At ManRepeller.com. Man Repeller is kooky from its words on the pages to the images related to the articles, here is just a snippet from a recent blog post called “I Found the Perfect Jeans”:

“HERE’S HOW TO WEAR THEM FIVE WAYS

Fact: locating perfect denim is akin to achieving ideal companionship, but here’s a question worth canvassing: what happens after you’ve uncovered your happy ending? Do all the fireworks and salsa dancing emojis continue to populate the movie screen that is your life? Do Taylor Swift songs play every time you and your loved one (be s/he human or cotton) are reunited? Are there fights? Ruts that seem insurmountable?”

For more of the blogpost jump on to manrepeller.com to read the fun yet fashion forward post. Man Repeller is a blog that i have been inspired from with the signature humour of the blog being infused with fashion referencing style in a unique way. With fashion being taken serious at times on red carpets with worst and best dressed, this is a refreshing take on fashion in a fun and creative way. This is well grounded with an audience and following of more than 184,000 Twitter followers, 547,200 Instagram followers and 144,000 Facebook followers.

In 2012, Medine was also featured in Forbes’s “Top 30 Under 30” as one of the year’s “most influential trendsetters, while The Man Repeller was recognised in TIME’s “25 Best Blogs of 2012”,and received “Best Overall Blog” at the 2012 Bloglovin’ Awards. Leandra Medine success as a blogger is something I inspire to achieve, gaining the readers and following to be influential in the fashion industry.

Giddy Up Fashion Lovers

The Melbourne Cup stakes were off and racing today, where fashion filled the race track with bright pops of colour and flamboyant designs. My favourite look of the day was the gorgeous Gigi Hadid who was pretty as a picture in a pink lace Alex Perry and Jonathan Howard jewelled star headpiece. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/157744-aec6f34e-63c7-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Of course Melbourne Cup is all about the fascinator, with the ladies trying to pick the perfect headpiece that will stand out from the rest. However standing out for all the wrong reasons was newly engaged Gabi Grecko, sporting her new engagement ring. http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/224176-7f20c32e-63c5-11e4-bdd3-73a977145716.jpg Swiss special guest Bec Hewitt was eye catching in a black and white Roberto Cavalli tassel dress and neon green Neil Gregg headpiece and matching accessories. http://resources1.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/223869-2e90c948-63cc-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg Red is a key colour of the spring racing season and looked radiant on Megan Gale and Rachel Finch sporting Yeojin Bae and Ward & Wylie headpiece. http://resources2.news.com.au/images/2014/11/04/1227112/094578-0bbcdd28-63ac-11e4-8f83-4f43733686cd.jpg http://www.mamamia.com.au/wp-content/gallery/2014-melbourne-cup/458354428.jpg Popping colours of red, orange and yellow were contrasted with pretty pastel shades of lilac, mint and pink trackside with most women opting for sleek and chic silhouettes. Rebecca Judd was slimingly opulent in a corseted Dolce and Gabbana dress and Hatmaker headpiece. http://i.dailymail.co.uk/i/pix/2014/11/04/1415062344680_Image_galleryImage_Rebecca_Judd_in_the_Birdc.JPG Protectionist was the winner of the big Melbourne Cup day which sums up the ladies of the races in regards to their fashion perfectly. The spring races season has produced some amazing diverse looks with Derby Day being contrasted with blacks and whites, and Melbourne Cup brought out the bold and colourful putting a spring in the fashion step. The spring races fashion queen this year of course would have to go to Jennifer Hawkins. With a killer outfit at the Derby Day in a striking all black lace dress by no one other than Alex Perry of course! http://resources0.news.com.au/images/2014/11/01/1227109/249624-45134110-6169-11e4-a822-f0e45dcacc2e.jpg The dress was classy with an edge, with lace that looks like leather. Jen Hawkins definitely marked her 10 years since making her fashion debut at Flemington, the face of Myer can do no wrong! What was your favourite spring racing season look?

TROPICAL OASIS

Summer is the time for prints to emerge and take a stand, you can emerge from winter with lots of colour. Dress with bright colours such as green, yellow, orange and bright pink mixed with tropical inspired prints. This trend brings pops of colour and reminds us of those summery fresh fruits and animals that appear when the sun comes back out. Men seem to love this trend in summer time and the men on the Myer runway brought it back in style

WEARABLE ART

Art is not for just hanging on the walls this summer with punchy, technicolour shades and bright clashes of colour have defined a key trend.

WORLD TRAVELLER

Think boho vibe, its global safari with animal motifs and silhouettes coming forth in summer. It is very relaxed mixed with mysterious and sophisticated, earthy colours are reminiscent of the desert and sky with prints reflecting the global inspiration with geometric tribal motifs, swirls and zig zags. This boho trend can be styled to relax beside the pool or glammed up in a floor length gown and will spark a huge following of success this coming season.
