Tuesday, April 28, 2009 Sophia’s Corner: Pizza Time!

It’s rare that I post photos of myself on the blog, but I’ve begun to warm up to the idea. On Sunday night, the nastiest gals got together (along with our boyfriends and our web genius, Cody) for some pizza dinner in celebration of my 25th birthday. My workday attire is typically less stylish than I’d like, since it requires a lot of moving around during photo shoots (and I try to save my best pieces for times when it won’t be ruined). Enjoy!

Monday, April 27, 2009 Uncategorized: Morbid Mary

While I was browsing Chictopia, I came across an interview with a trend forecaster (and one of my favorite Chictopians cocorosa) that predicted a resurgence in morbid, gothic jewelry – H.R.Giger style. Of course we’ve all noticed chains, medieval crosses, rosaries, spikes and studs, but she’s talking one step further. A little research revealed Giger is a surreal painter, sculptor, set/furniture designer and all around artistic jack of all trades. Friends with David Lynch and Salvador Dalí at once, he has inspired cyberpunks, tattooists, fetishists, other artists and movie directors. Not to get all weird on you, but I think his aesthetic and jewelry are pretty interesting and unique.

Another one of my favorite jewelry designers is Delfina Delettrez who makes equally delightful jewelry. Her beautiful pieces vary from colorful animals to morbid skulls. That last piece would set anyone back almost 20 grand (seriously…) so for now I’ll just be content to obsess over it through cyberspace.

Some might see this as just plain creepy but I’m kinda liking the aesthetic. I think you just have to sport it with a sense of humor. What do you guys think? Too weird or pretty rad?

Wednesday, April 22, 2009 Right Now: Bandage Alert!

Bandage dresses are all the rage with everyone from celebrities to it-girls anonymous. While one might think you’d need the perfect body to don one, the thick, stretchy fabric is actually quite forgiving.  Hervé Léger by Max Azria has created an entire line of different variations of sexy, bodycon dresses, while Alexander Wang’s color blocked bandage dresses have been spotted everywhere.

It’s seems clear that this summer, every girl’s gotta have a sexy bandage dress. We are so stoked about our newly arrived dresses that are fabulous, on trend and won’t break the bank.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009 Sophia’s Corner: NYLON Loves NASTY GAL!

When I first started shooting models against a garage door in my driveway, we’d sometimes fantasize that someday NASTY GAL would be in the ever-so-coveted pages of Nylon magazine. It seemed like a long shot, but since then we’ve grown quite a bit. Well, Nylon has given us even more reason (aside from being the equivalent to our Bible) to worship what is essentially every girl’s favorite magazine. Read it and weep! And don’t forget to pick yourself up a copy of the May issue!
