The Man Repeller at Secret Location

There is a saying that goes like this. "A picture is worth a thousand words."

A few can do that better than The Man Repeller. Humour and a sense of style give her an undeniable edge in the blogging world.

Last week, I was fortunate enough to brush elbows with her at Secret Location.

Man Repeller and Poser Series, Fashion Bloggers, Leandra Medine, Man Repeller event at secret location in Vacouver

I almost missed the event because of work. So glad that this lovely girl put me on the list and I was able to catch the last bit of the event.

Aside from meeting and chatting with the lovely Leandra Medine the night was filled with extremely and outrageously amazing pieces of man-repelling pieces of fashion.

The shoes and purses are simply divine!

I had to rush to the event and did my best attempt to layer and put together a crazy outfit. I don't think I did all that well.

But inspired by Leandra's posts, here is my process of getting dressed.

I just got my new Tobi shipment, and I am largely a creature of convenience. Thus, this dress being strewn on the floor made it a natural choice.

I needed at least another layer. In came yet another Tobi piece that was conveniently laying right beside the dress.

The pop of orange is what initially drew me to this piece. But it also had a surprise, which will be revealed shortly.

Now what to put on my feet. Not to say those red heart dotted socks aren't darling, but I don't think I can go outside in just those.

Perfect, the blue is a perfect compliment to the bright orange. On goes these shoes.

Now the surprise. Bam!

Looks almost like a different item from behind. Oh hi-low, I love you with such passion! Your awesomeness knows no bounds

Perfect for showing off jean butt pockets and whatever other ASS-ets you may have.

Now all that turning, messed up my hair.

Fix my hair.

Fix the hem.

Voila!

Of course a purse is a must.

I think I looked presentable enough. Although, I could have been much more outrageous and random, given this is probably the one event where the crazier takes the cake.

But the important thing is, I got to meet her and have a chat.

Shop the look: Since I got all of these items on sale and/or at sample sale, the exact item is hard to obtain. So I present some close alternatives.
