It’s a frequent argument that comes up in debates about fashion, and one that I am firmly decided on: when it comes to fashion (and I don’t mean clothing, because the two are very different), women dress for other women, not for men. Case in point: the Man Repeller. There’s been a bit of talk about her of late, featured in Grazia and the New Yorker. She writes hilarious, pithy posts about how to move an outfit from sexy to entirely man-repelling, usually with the help of a very “now” and “on-trend” piece. So brilliant and worth checking out.

In other news, the ladies from Beaut.ie tried out Barry M’s new Instant Nail Effects topcoat – with the following results:

This is not – I repeat, not – a trend that men are going to be down with, unless they’re very stylish in their own right. But what do you think? Do you dress for men, for women, or for yourself? Do you care if men find your choices attractive? Most importantly, would you wear the nail polish?

(In no way am I trying to distract from the last post on fur. In no way at all.)
