Meet Man Repeller Leandra Medine at the W Hotel on Wednesday

The fashion obsessed probably need no introduction to Leandra Medine, the idiosyncratically stylish wunderkind who turned her passion for furry shoes and pajamas for daytime into the fashion blog Man Repeller three years ago. With its grad school intellectualism and passion for eccentric, "man-repelling" style, the site has emerged as one of the most respected fashion blogs in a very crowded, selfie-inclined field.

With Fashion Month concluded, the woman who coined the term "arm party" -- the stacking of as many accessories as your delicate wrist can withstand -- has returned from London, Paris and Milan armed with every mildly repellent trend you'll need to know for 2014. (More shoes that look just like men's! Skirts that cover your knees!)

Go on and ask her for advice when she visits the W Hotel's rooftop Wednesday for a book party to celebrate her new style-and-love memoir "Man Repeller: Seeking Love, Finding Overalls."

Medine will sign copies of the book and chat up guests at the rooftop soiree from 6:30 to 8:30 p.m., while you can try on bangles from C. Wonder; see how you look rocking a red lip at a lipstick bar manned by Nectar Skin Bar; and have your hair whipped into a sleek 'do at the "bun bar" from IPSA salon.
