Tuesday, March 30, 2010 Newsflash: To Indio We Go!
So a lot of you gals have been asking for suggestions on what to wear to Coachella Valley and with loads of festival-friendly arrivals coming in, we had to share what’s on our packing list!
There are three main things we try to keep in mind when planning the annual pilgrimage to Indio: sweltering heat, cramped quarters (at the hotel, tents and in your suitcase), and most importantly, amazing pieces that are easy to toss on and head out to the polo field.
Which brings us to our ten festival essentials:
1. An oversized tee and/or tank
2. A sheer lace tank to layer over a bikini top
3. Denim cutoffs
4. A slinky tank dress (we’re beyond obsessed with Ann Sofie-Back’s version for Cheap Monday)
5. A wild print dress or romper (to catch the eye of a cute bassist or street style photog!)
6. Perfectly worn-in flats to pair with…well…everything
10. Waterproof mascara (to minimize the risk of a raccoon eye incident)
So there you have it! And if you can’t make it down to the Polo Fields, just download Phoenix’s new live album gratis and head to the park with a boombox!
Wednesday, March 24, 2010 Nasty Gals Do It Better: Sheer Blouses
We’re totally head-over-heels about fashion blogger Maggie Chong’s youthful take on a classically demure piece, rocking NG’s Waldorf Pussy Bow Blouse with rolled-cuff denim shorts, oversized sunnies, towering boots and an 80′s-inspired gold watch. Since sheer blouses and denim are starting to pop up everywhere we look this season, we asked her to share what else makes her tick (sartorially speaking of course):
Okay, describe your style: Simple and classic.
Who do you find most inspiring? There are a lot on my list but if I had to choose one, it’d be Kate Lanphear for her style and beautiful editorials.
One thing you can’t live without: Non-fashion related, my laptop. Fashion related, sunglasses (to cover my puffy eyes).
Your 3 wardrobe essentials: Skinnies, heels and watches.
P.S. Send photos of how you wear your fave Nasty Gal pieces to firstname.lastname@example.org for a chance to be featured on our blog!
