In what can be a very superficial industry, what we love most about Leandra Medine is her ability to articulate what's on every fashion girl's mind without a filter. Never afraid to say what she thinks, Medine recently penned an article for her blog Man Repeller around something we can all relate to: Whether or not building a tightly edited capsule wardrobe is actually possible.
