Wednesday, August 29, 2012 Right Now: Our Collection Must-Haves

Jacqueline, Shoe Buyer: ”Good prints are so hard to come by, especially in oversized, wear-as-a-dress sweaters. This one has all the tricks: bomb color palette, sweet pockets and an of-the-moment digital print. Throw this baby on with a pair of black boots and a smack of super pink lipstick (Pink Nouveau from MAC is my fave!) and get ready to be the coolest girl in and out of school.”

Saga, Apparel Merchandise Assistant: “I love the mirrored neckline and the fact that the boning can be molded to fit your chest. It’s the kind of dress that will look rad on anyone and is really perfect for any occasion!”

Simone, Shoe Merchandising Assistant: “The Fuse Shag Jacket is a total “I Don’t Give a F&#k” piece.  I’d wear it with all-black, all-tight everything, severe boots, and some serious attitude. You know, the usual.”

Alex, Production Coordinator: “This leather jacket is the ultimate combination of badass and chic. In my dreams, I’m riding through the desert on the back of an old Harley with that long fringe trailing behind me in the wind!”

Inspired by the daring cutouts and lace up details in our debut Nasty Gal Collection, it’s no surprise that our favorite fall footwear also shows some skin (or tights) in an unexpected way. Here is our shoe buyer Jacqueline’s current wishlist.

Tuesday, August 28, 2012 Studio Soundtracks: Back To The Future

Since Nasty Gal HQ is abuzz with excitement over our first collection, it seemed only natural for it to be the inspiration for this week’s soundtrack. From Kraftwerk, the pioneers of electronic music to a young David Bowie floating in space, it’s time to turn up the tunes that blast vintage into the digital age.

“Das Model” by Kraftwerk

“Kraftwerk pioneered a digital sound that was way ahead of their time with minimalist beats and an almost robotic stage presence. Though almost any of their songs would have been perfect for this playlist, we’re pretty into the variety show-meets-vintage model mashup in this video.”

“Space Oddity” by David Bowie

“Even though this is one of our forever favorites, we only recently discovered the original video for “Space Oddity” from 1969. Bowie puts a psychedelic spin on 2001: A Space Odyssey, featuring Major Tom floating into the unknown with chiffon-clad space babes.”

“I Feel Love” by Donna Summer

“Since no soundtrack would be complete with a little disco, we had to include this Donna Summer classic that influenced the beginning of techno music. After first hearing “I Feel Love”, Brian Eno famously said, ‘This is it, look no further. This single is going to change the sound of club music for the next fifteen years.’ Enough said.”

“From Here To Eternity” by Giorgio Moroder

“ Another disco legend, Giorgio Moroder actually collaborated with Ms. Summer on some of her most iconic tracks. We’re pretty sure it’s impossible not to start dancing as soon this song from comes on. In fact, I’m dancing in my chair right now.”

“We Are Your Friends” by Justice v. Simian

“This collab from Justice and Simian Mobile Disco was the official club anthem of 2006, and it’s still one of the most fun songs to shout out with your friends on the dance floor.”
