Thursday, September 2, 2010 Behind The Scenes: Meet Christina
We’ve been meaning to introduce the super rad staff that works behind the scenes at Nasty Gal for quite some time now but we’re all, you know, working. So after a few weeks of battling a deadly combo of procrastination and pestering, we got NG’s very first employee and buyer extraordinaire, Christina, to sit down for a quick Q+A:
Your 3 wardrobe essentials: A good pair of black tights, a fitted blazer and mid-rise skinny cigarette jeans. Also, old beat up tee shirts like my boyfriend’s Tulane University tee which can double as a pajama shirt and acceptable work attire, and a shredded Bon Jovi tee that Sophia is letting me borrow.
What do you find most inspiring? My generation. What people my age are doing – both fashion and non-fashion related.
Things you couldn’t live without: My family, my boyfriend, vacation time, coffee and donuts.
You’d never be caught dead wearing: Clothing that’s too bright, too tight and shows off too much skin. I don’t mind any of these alone, but combining them on my body is a scary thought.
What are you most excited to wear this fall? Pretty much any red leather shoes, giant chunky sweaters in neutral colors and maxi skirts. I’m also trying to hunt down a pair of crimson red velvet Doc Martens.
Your perfect Sunday: Sleeping in a bit, watching my boyfriend cook me breakfast, lounging around the house, catching a movie, grocery shopping without running into someone I know and getting Lamb Souvlaki at this tiny restaurant near my house.
What’s your favorite thing about working at Nasty Gal? When I have the time I like taking a lunch break with everyone. It’s fun to laugh and be silly for a little while. Also, being able to work with people my own age who really care about their jobs is awesome.
