Silk parachute pants. A gold lamé jumpsuit. Ankle boots with
fringe. Were these fashion-forward items sending men running in the
opposite direction? Maybe, but Leandra Medine never cared.
Slipping into drop-crotch shorts and a boxed sequin blazer in the
dressing room of Topshop in downtown Manhattan, a brokenhearted
Leandra had an epiphany. Looking in the mirror, she suddenly
realized she didn't have a boyfriend because of the way she
dressed. And the more she thought about it, the more she realized
that such outfits said a lot about her life-romantic and
Now, in her first book, the acclaimed blogger and fashion darling
recounts her most significant memories through the lens of her
sartorial choices. With her signature sass, blunt honesty, and some
personal photos, Leandra shares details of the night she lost her
virginity right down to the pair of white tube socks she forgot to
take off, as well as when and why she realized her grandma's
vintage Hermès ostrich skin clutch could hold much more than just
keys and a cell phone. Through it all, she proves you don't need to
compromise even your most repellent qualities to find your way into
that big white dress (and an organza moto jacket). See? You can
have your yeti and wear it, too.
Showcasing the singular voice that has won Leandra millions of
fans, this book is a collection of awkwardly funny experiences, a
sweet love story, and above all, a reminder to celebrate and
embrace a world made for women, by women.
