Friday, August 31, 2012 A Week With: Dee, Design Darling and Head Banger

Fuse Shag Jacket, Crawford Dress, Cut It Out Collar Necklace

You may already know Dee from her Chit Chat session or remember her as one of our very first models. Now she’s an integral part of our design team, constantly sketching, cutting and creating the Nasty Gal collection. Inspired by everything from minimalism to heavy metal, Dee’s style is a force to be reckoned with and she just so happens to be one of the coolest girls we know. Take a trip into her closet and the moody lair the bleach blonde babe calls home.

“This is my favorite jacket from our collection. It adds a loud pop of color to a smoldering black dress…or anything really.”

“This is one of my coolest vintage finds ever from one of the world’s greatest designers. It says ‘Music Keeps You Under Control’, and I’m pretty sure Vivienne Westwood made it specifically for me.”

Vintage Vivienne Westwood tee, The Kink High-Rise Jean

“Music has always been a huge inspiration for my personal style and decor. A rock tee and jeans is my go-to uniform.”

Madrid Wool Hat, Crawford Dress, Vintage Chloe maxi dress & Robert Clergerie wedges

“Lately, I’ve been into more of a minimal aesthetic. I’m surrounded by swatches of bold prints and colors every day, so it feels like a clean slate.”

Vintage jumper, hat and belt, LD Tuttle boots

“I think there should be a statement piece in every outfit you wear. In this case, it’s my ex-boyfriend’s tooth ring.”

“Music and film culture are the biggest influences in my personal and design aesthetic. Motorhead and Black Sabbath are my all-time favorite bands, so everything definitely skews to the dark side.”

Nasty Gal blouse (coming soon), The Kink High-Rise Jean, Alexander Wang boots

“This is my take on the Canadian tux. I’d toss it on to go to the flea market or for a ride on the back of a Harley with a leather jacket.”

Left: Reboot Moto Jacket, vintage top, Miu Miu skirt, LD Tuttle boots, Right: Harness Moto Top, Varsity Moto Skirt

“This colorblock moto is one of the pieces I designed for Weird Science. I wanted something that would seamlessly fit into any wardrobe, but still has an unexpected element. I love the contrast of soft pastels with tough black leather.”

“I’m really into the novelty of all things dark and witchy. It all goes back to music since I grew up on heavy metal. All of these were gifts from my friends, which makes them even more special to me.”

Friday, August 31, 2012 California Dreaming: Working For The (Long) Weekend

We’re officially counting down the minutes until a long weekend packed with sand, surf and non-stop dancing in the heart of LA. Here’s where you’ll find us sending off summer with a bang.

Rosa, Fashion Content Editor: “Spending the weekend in Malibu to lay on the beach all day and escape the madness of the city.”

Alex, Production Coordinator: “I’m pretty amped to catch Dinosaur Jr., Black Dice, Lightning Bolt, Health, and Ceremony at FYF Fest!”

Jacqueline, Junior Buyer: “My boyfriend surprised me with a weekend getaway to Santa Barbara for our anniversary. We’ll be making feeble attempts at surfing, but definitely excelling at long brunches and catching some rays on the beach.”

Madison, Junior Copywriter: “Heading to visit my fam in the Dirty South for some blues, booze and BBQ.”

Saga, Apparel Merchandising Assistant: “I’m going to a Dodgers game on Monday, mainly for the Dodger Dogs and beer!”

Simone, Shoe Merchandising Assistant: “It’s the last weekend of the Herb Ritts exhibit at the Getty, so that’s a definite must! It doesn’t get much better than iconic photos of supermodels with one of the best views in LA.”

Thursday, August 30, 2012 Lessons From The Pros: Violet Femme

Stacey’s secret eye tip #73: ”Believe it or not, violet is a great neutral for the eye. A touch of the striking hue will do WONDERS for your everyday look, as it instantly brightens and enhances any eye color.  My go-to duo is Marie-Galante from Nars. Just a sweep of this iridescent orchid and midnight blue will make you go cross-eyed with amazement. For a more delicate approach, I love to brush Yves Saint Laurent’s Volume Effet Faux Cils in Fascinating Violet on my lashes. If you saturate your lashes and skip out on the liner and eyeshadow, it looks impossibly modern and intoxicating.” To get inspired, here are a few of our favorite on-and-off the runway looks.
