Meet The Cult: Rachel Nguyen

06_RACHEL_030

Rachel Nguyen is brains and beauty: She has a fashion blog That’s Chic and a degree in economics. She’s been hustling from job to job for years—most recently as a denim designer—so now she’s enjoying time to work on creating her own clothing line, and also being able to hang out by the pool whenever the hell she feels like it. You can go ahead and hate her for her mid-Wednesday pics of margaritas. She’s ok with that.

Working for the Weekend

WSJ

I only get sick about once a year, but when it hits, it hits hard. And this week, unfortunately, it’s been germs 1, me 0. But I plan on kicking the sick soon—very soon—because this is a pretty big weekend. Nasty Gal is being featured in the WSJ magazine, which hits newsstands today, but I’ve also got a music festival to attend. Super important things happening here, people.

Meet the Cult: Michelle Kim

Talking to artist Michelle Kim makes you smarter. Her paintings and installations reference everything from existential philosophy to poetry, religion and occult studies.

Meet the Cult: Niki Takesh

Niki Takesh is the kind of girl who’ll tell you her bra size the first time you meet, aka the kind of girl who’s your instant BFF. A dilettante who does a little bit of everything from styling to music videos, Niki used to dream of being a pop star like her idol, Britney Spears, but now wants to do everything, including hosting her own talk show where she and her guests sip tequila from coffee mugs. We would totally watch that.
