If best friends are the ones who love you even with unshaved legs, then Man Repeller is the friend who loves you specifically for it.
But wait, once you discover Man Repeller, you'll never go back to man appealing.
This month's Virtual Girlfriend is Leandra Medine, founder of the Man Repeller.
Superwoman packed into a human body, she established a space for women where "being pretty" is not the factor that determines your whole existence. In their words: "It’s an award-winning multi-media business and a global community of bright, interested and interesting people who know that fashion, humor and intelligence are not mutually exclusive." - MR.com.
To give you a hint, repelling men is not actually required. However, sense of humor is a must. But don't be fooled by their laid back vibe and outrageous outfits. Leandra and team MR are much more than a platform about fashion. Unlike most of the fashion publications, they don't try to possess your individuality by enforcing you into stereotypes. They proclaim that we, women, can't be put in the box and no one should even attempt to put any rigid definitions onto us.
My personal favorite is the "Oh, Boy" podcast. It's an ultimate party with the coolest women from the fashion industry, art, culture and beyond. In an hour or so you get to hear their stories about how these boss ladies built their success. It's not always as glossy as it looks to us from the outside.
Guests on this show include fashion icon Alexa Chung, co-founder of Glossier ‘Into The Gloss’ Emily Weiss, co-founder of the controversial underwear THINX Miki Agrawal and much more.
That being said, I really hope that from listening to these women we can maybe inherit some of their wisdom.
