Seeking Love, Finding Overalls

By Chelsea Parker

Man Repelling will soon come in novel form. My personal favorite fashion blogger, Leandra Medine, has filled an entire book with wit and style. The moment the news broke on her blog, the book earned itself a No. 1 spot on my list of must-reads.

Leandra Medine’s blog, Man Repeller, began in 2010 and has since launched Medine onto Forbes’ “30 Under 30” as well as TIME Magazine’s top 25 blogs of 2012. I have no doubt that these praises will be surpassed by the numerous rave reviews I expect to see for this book. After all, it has already made a name for itself by ranking No. 8 in humor essays on Amazon. For Medine coming in just below comedians Tina Fey and Mindy Kaling is a huge feat and surely foreshadows the success of the collections of essays “Man Repeller: Seeking Love. Finding Overalls.”
