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.

Peachy Keen

So my very first scrabble word was Dogvane!

What's a dogvane you ask?

Dogvane in a park

That is a dogvane.

Free People hatattack hat, tobi prada inspired darla sunglasses, desginer inspired sunglasses, peach hat

No, those items do not have anything to do with scarbble. Though, hat, used with some combo words and triple word bonus can land you some serious points.

What do all three of things have in common though?

Well, the first depicts the setting of this entry, while the second star in it.

Lately, we have been getting really crappy rainy, gloomy, grey and cold days in the morning. But come quitting time, the clouds part and rays of sun warm up the cold parts of the pavement, and perhaps my heart.

Works for me, I rather be able to enjoy what little there is the the sun we get as much as we can.

So, on another typical Vancouver day, we headed out for another "typical" shoot.

See my face, well that's pretty much the day from morning to afternoon, from gray to yay!

This ensemble is mostly items of the vintage variety. The top and skirt are both from the Fair during their moving sale. I hope they find a new location soon and reopen once again.

The skirt didn't have slits quite so high. They were more only up to my knees. For some reason, it just did not look right. I had to take drastic measures and upped ante by raising the slits.

I am happy with the results.

It just gives the whole outfit so much more movement.

The plush green grass fields really provides the most optimum back drop for this peachy outfit.

So, would you say this is more monochrome? or is it colour blocking? Yes the colours don't vary so drastically as you would see a typical colour blocked outfit. But at the end of the day, it is solids on solids.

Oh it's all semantics, the important thing is, it's a happenin' outfit.

I feel like such a lady.

My Tobi Haul

Tobi.com has the cutest items! Ever since I discovered this amazing Free People Ruffle Peplum Peacoat that I dedicated an entire post to.

Ever since I have always kept an close eye but never actually ordered anything...

...until now that is.

The Siren song of these items were too beautiful for me to resist.

The first thing that caught my eye was this Who's Dot Pocket Shirt in black and white polka dots.

I love how it is subtle from the front, but when you turn around, BAM, polka dot city! The sheerness makes it a great layering piece. I can even wear this as an over top to the beach. I will definitely be doing it.

Then this Bien Bien Skull and Jeweled Cheetah Clutch made its way into the shopping bag as well.

It is so Alexander McQueen-ish. It can pretty much go with every other item I have also purchased.

The next item I actually stared at for a while before I added it to the shopping bag. Not because I was hesitating over it. But because I couldn't not stop staring at it.

The Maxi'd Out Halter Dress in black.

This would be so easy to wear for the summer. I just hope the weather would cooperate so I will have many chances to wear it.

Then, the polar opposite of the black dress.

I actually never really buy white dressed. But something about this one...

The Cameo Undercover Mesh Dress in White.

Scrolling through, these shorts would have matched so well with the polka dot top.

It is called the Hot & Delicious Lined Up Shorts.

I would have to agree, it is definitely hot and delicious.

Not to mention, those shorts would be an amazing paring to this shirt.

This red Cals Collection Hankerchief top is absolutely amazing. Conservative from the front and surprising from behind.

Finally, these super fun Darla Sunglasses would definitely become my eye wear staple for all those sunny days.

I can't wait to receive these and incorporate them into my summer and spring wardrobe. The best part of it all, they were all on sale!
