Wednesday, June 30, 2010 Right Now: Show Us Your Red, White + Blues
(Stardust & Sequins, Lookbook.nu)
Whether you use the 4th as an excuse to channel Kelly Bundy or Marilyn Monroe, there’s only one rule to live by: GO ALL OUT.
And here are some of the tools you need to fuel your new-found Patriotic side:
Monday, June 28, 2010 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Fashion Squad Gets Nasty!
This past Friday, we were lucky enough to have our favorite Swedish style blogger Carolina Engman of Fashion Squad stop by Nasty Gal HQ to model some brand new vintage finds.
Since she’s in San Francisco for the summer to soak up the California sun with her boyfriend/Bloglovin’ founder (talk about a power couple!), we had her pick out her favorite warm-weather looks for exploring the city streets:
(On The Spot Romper, Big Shades)
“I wanted to play off the polka dots with giant shades and an oversized clutch for a playful 80s look.”
“I love toughening up pretty florals with denim and metal this summer for a 90s-inspired grunge look.”
“I have serious lace mania right now, and wooden platforms are a great way to dress it down for the daytime.”

Monday, June 28, 2010 Artsy Fartsy: What To Do With That Pile Of Magazines Under Your Bed
(Insane magazine cutout art by Christopher Coppers)
Okay so maybe we’re nowhere near as crafty as Mr. Coppers, but the bottom mag seems pretty feasible with the help of a ruler and fresh X-Acto blade.
What do you think — OCD or OMG?
Thursday, June 24, 2010 Sophia’s Corner: MSNBC Gets Nasty
I had the pleasure of meeting with MSNBC recently to be interviewed for one of my favorite shows, Your Business. Boorrrring, I know — but while fashion is a ton of fun, running a business is a challenge of near-biblical proportions. I didn’t study business, and until I started selling vintage on eBay years ago, I had no idea that the entrepreneurial bug would bite my ass so hard. Anyway, It’s cool to make my parents proud (Hey Ma, I’m on TV!). But I beg of you, please, don’t watch it in HD.
Thursday, June 24, 2010 Artsy Fartsy: One Stop For Aggy
There’s no doubt we could all stand to learn a thing or two from the eternally hip model-slash-whatever the hell she feels like being Agyness Deyn.
That’s why we’re beyond thrilled that the much-abuzzed online fashion mag NAAG finally launched!
A delicious mix of fashion, beauty, music and things she and co-founder/confidant Fiona Byrne dig in their day-to-day, we suspect all PYTs (ourselves included!) will eat up every last word and photo.
