Friday, March 5, 2010 Newsflash: Calling All Nasty Gals
As you very well may know, I was so excited by seeing how one customer styled her NG piece that I’ve been racking my brain for ways that we can get inspired by fellow Nasty Gals on the regular. And while it would be nice to get a public forum up-and-running in the near future, for now let’s get started the old fashioned way.
All you have to do is email a photo (or five) of yourself sporting your favorite NG piece of the moment to firstname.lastname@example.org and we’ll feature the most fab ensembles on our blog every week…maybe more depending on how quickly they pour in!
So what are you waiting for? GO!
Thursday, March 4, 2010 Right Now: 5 Ways To Pull Off Socks This Spring
(Mr. Newton, Alexander Wang SS10, Nasty Gal, Gaspard Yurkievich SS10, Stylorectic)
We here at Nasty Gal have long been fans of the sock in all its forms — knee highs, over-the-knee, thigh-highs — so watching them pop up en masse on the runway and streets has been particularly exciting. Better still is the fact that people have been layering them in a multitude of new ways that hadn’t occurred to even the biggest hosiery aficionados! And not only do they look totally fresh paired with dresses and shorts alike, they also do a pretty good job of keeping your gams toasty during the awkward transitional months.
Despite how wrong it may feel stepping out onto the streets for the first time wearing what was once condemned in the fashion world, ahem, socks with open-toe shoes — we assure you this adorable accessory trend will be sticking around for the long term, so just have fun with it!
Without further ado, our fave five ways to accessorize with socks:
1. Add a jolt of color to your neutral wardrobe staples with bold patterned socks
2. Pair knee-high athletic socks with a cropped tee and shorts for a perfectly sportly ensemble
3. Scrunched knee-highs with platform heels give feminine frocks a downtown edge
4. Take your look to the next level by layering monochromatic socks of different lengths
5. Not into wearing double socks? Experiment with layering patterned tights with thigh-highs instead!
Wednesday, March 3, 2010 Artsy Fartsy: Only 16 Days Til Spring…But Who’s Counting?
Just when we thought it was impossible to love Miuccia any more, we discovered the insanely gorgeous ‘Fantasy Lookbook’ for Prada’s SS10 collection that rather resembles an editorial spread for French Vogue. Of course the rainbow-kissed and double exposed photos quickly lead to an impromptu brainstorming session for the next NG lookbook, but the most important question of all: what do you all want to see??
Tuesday, March 2, 2010 Nasty Gals In The Wild: How A Nasty Gal Does Leopard
When Australian customer Taylor tweeted earlier tonight about how she styled the Cloudy Leopard Jumper, I couldn’t help but share. From the orange-red lips to her all black converse, she knows how to make a buyer proud. Thank you, Taylor, for giving us a fresh slant on an adorable piece! On another note, I was so excited by this that I’m tinkering with the idea of a public forum that NG customers could post how they wear our pieces. What’s your opinion — good idea or bad? Suggestions please!
