So it turns out my closet is full of men confusing clothes. I'm not trendy enough to be a full man repeller but I love clothes that men are confused by. Maxi skirts, midi skirts, blouses that tie at the neck, high waisted pants, faux fur... they just don't make sense to men. Jeans and a t-shirt. That makes sense. Mini skirts. That makes perfect sense. Covering up every inch of your body and then throwing on a faux fur vest? Confusing.
On this very windy day I decided to confuse the male gender by doing just that. Aside from my shoes, I probably repelled every guy in Vancouver with this outfit. But do you know who would love the fact that I'm covered up everywhere but my neck? The cast of Twilight. Just sayin'.


  1. Love your outfit from head to toe.

  2. I always love your write ups! So good.

    Well, I love this outfit, the color of that blouse paired with the faux fur and your beautiful Coach bag look perfect together!

    Yay it's Fridayyyy!!

  3. I've been thinking the exact same thing lately so this entire post made me chuckle. Being female, I totally loved this look. Bow tie blouse, fur and cute pants? Love :)

  4. Yea I bought a long floral maxi dress and my boyfriend told me I looked like a school teacher or a woman from one of those mormon camps... they just don't get it!! But I LOVE this look on you! Everyone knows we dress for the other ladies not the boys anyways!


  5. You're too cute! I can never figure out men, but you're right... they love a mini skirt! :)


  6. melissa, i just wanted to say that i love your blog very much. your write-ups are always funny and can relate with other people. i love your style, too!

  7. Love the color of your blouse it offsets the masculine outfit :)
    Have a great weekend!


  8. well I think you look lovely... i would wear this in a heartbeat... man confusing or not! i do love how you called it "man confusing"! hehe
    have a great weekend

  9. Haha you look lovely Melissa! And I seriously don't think this outfit counts as man repelling - at least ones with any sense ;) I love the colour palette of pale pink and tan fur and that bag is so pretty. Love anything black and gold!

    Have a great weekend!

  10. Such a cute outfit! I think I'm just in love with all of it - love the top and faux fur, they look so good together. And that bag is a beauty!

  11. Haha yeah, the Twilight cast would be so happy with this outfit! But seriously, I don't think it's man repelling at all. Any "decent" man will think that just jeans and T-shirt are boring and short skirts are for... well, different kinds of girls. Ok, it depends on what kind of short skirt obviously ;-)

    The blouse and fur look awesome together. And that bag is so pretty!

    Have a great weekend xo

  12. Hahaha I love your little write-up, hilarious! I guess my wardrobe is pretty confusing as well, us women and our painting of nails, curling of hair and eyelashes, we really make no sense to anyone except ourselves.

    Manrepelling or not, this outfit is phenomenal! Pussybow tie and the faux fur? Genius.

    Have a fantastic weekend! :)

  13. I think it's totally cute. We don't dress for men but for ourselves right? haha.

  14. LOVE everything about this look, especially the blouse. Such a pretty color.


  15. I've never seen clothes as a tool to confuse guys, but I suppose your right. Haha! I love the bow blouse, I've been looking around for one similar to it.


  16. Well I think you look fabulous! I love all the neutral tones and how well they work together. I need a vest like that too!


  17. love your blouse with the furry vest!

  19. Hey beauty! I want to drive to H&M this minute and search for that vest. It's the perfect amount of poof! I love it. I am loving your darker hair for this season too - beautiful! xo

  20. Great outfit. I know what you mean by men confusing clothes. About half the clothes I put on and ask the BFs opinion he always has this weird look on his face and all I say is suck it up :)

  21. Gosh you have such cute style and your blog is so entertaining! I completely agree with your comment about men and fur vest, maxi skirts, etc. I always take the opportunity to wear such items on my girl's night out dates and ignore them when I go out with the boyfriend.


  22. That sort of blush color looks great on you!
