I heart Leandra Medine, fashion guru behind The Man Repeller, but who doesn’t? Let’s all jump up and down now because she’s coming to Dallas to visit Neiman Marcus NorthPark Wednesday, March 6, and maybe we can fawn over and profess our love for her, I mean, meet her. In celebration of her capsule collection with PJK, she and the NM gang invite you to come have a drink, peruse the clothing, and you know, stare in awe at her hopefully extra man-repelling ensemble. And because I can’t say it any more Man Repeller-y than it is on the invite:
Reminder: Clothes Encounters, one of my very favorite shopping opportunities, starts today and ends on Friday. Don’t miss it.

Silver bangles, dangling earrings, colorful beaded necklaces abound. The difference is the crafting of the goods. Everything here is fair trade and handmade. Get the scoop.
