Friday, October 26, 2012 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Behind Kat Borchart’s Lens

Our latest lookbook goes for Baroque with all kinds of shiny, decorative, romantic, spangly things and we have the legendary Cha Cha Lounge and photographer Kat Borchart to thank for it. She’s an LA-born and based photographer who lives in a bunker-style studio in Los Feliz with her black cat Cash. Here, she tells us about her life behind the lens…

“I’ve been shooting for about five years and I’m drawn to making imagery that is energetic, colorful and natural. The best thing about my job is all the road trips I get to take–this year alone I’ve done Palm Springs, Big Bear, Joshua Tree, and Las Vegas for different projects. I have a great team I work with often and they make the time on the road the most fun, to the point where it never even feels like work.

“Because I’m constantly hoofing around LA for production things, my style is pretty low-key. I tend to gravitate toward basics but when I’m going out at night I love the random piece that makes the outfit stand out: a super bright color, red lipstick, bold print or statement accessory. Otherwise, a daily uniform is a good pair of high-waisted denim (so my booty doesn’t show when bending over!) and some breathable t-shirts–they’re really the best for all types of locations. (See my Nasty Gal choices below!)

“My biggest thing lately has been shooting Polaroids with my new Fuji 210. It satisfies my photo tech side by having more controls than your average Polaroid but it’s obviously portable so I’ve been taking it everywhere, and it’s fun to pass around when going out. I took some on our Cha Cha shoot, too. Speaking of which, HUGE thanks to the guys at the Cha Cha Lounge  for letting us take over their crazy awesome bar. It’s been my watering hole since heading into the Silverlake area a couple of years ago, and it provided the perfect backdrop of kooky art and fun games to occupy us for a full day.”

Thursday, October 25, 2012 OMG, Shoes!: One Of Each, Please

Since the fact that someone is going to win 50 new pairs of shoes next week has our heads spinning with the sky-high possibilities, we turned to our shoe buyer Jacqueline for the eight pairs she thinks every gal should have on her feet this season.

The Platform – Calista Platform: “Just the right amount of sex appeal and rock and roll. Plus, they’ll look amazing with black tights when it gets cold out!”

The Boot – Rum Moto Boot: ”The perfect everyday boot. I seriously have to force myself not to reach for these every morning.”

The Heel – Derien Pump: ”Chic and subtle, but with that hard-to-find ’90s shape in the perfect metallic.”

The Flat – Nita Velvet Oxford: “It’s hard not to fall in love with oxblood, velvet, and a stellar print all rolled into one amazing flat.”

The Sneaker – Homg Platform Sneaker: “Despite the camo print, it’s impossible to blend in with these bad boys on your feet. They’re made for weekend adventures.”

The Bootie – Alla Buckled Bootie: “The metal details make these booties so special, especially the little surprise in the back!”

The Sandal – Venus Pump“You can’t go wrong with a classic t-strap, and the smoked lucite heel gives it an unexpected edge.”

The Wedge – Audrey Spike Wedge: “The ankle strap and wedge make them perfect for dancing all night long!”
