"Medine is known to fashion lovers as both the voice behind the blog turned style website Man Repeller & the original Man Repeller herself. The girl-power philosophy behind the name implies that enjoying fashion for its art and dressing accordingly can be subversive, empowering, and, often, confusing to the opposite sex. Medine writes in a style tributary to the layered looks she’s known for snapping on her site—using 10 curlicue, roundabout words when a couple plain and direct ones would do—but therein lies the fun of reading her. New Yorker to a T, she delves into dating, her Manhattan upbringing, and her stumble into the A-list fashion spotlight with candor and a surprising amount of physical comedy. A less talented writer behind this high-fashion curtain could make it all a detestable snore, but the utterly likable Medine comes across vividly and sincerely in writing what she loves." --Booklist

"Not only do I agree with how Leandra dresses, but I also agree with everything she says in these brilliant stories. She's a terrific writer." --Joan Rivers
