Everyone wants to dress like a French girl, so we got Anne-Laure, from the blog Adenorah, to teach us the tricks of the Parisian trade. With cuffed jeans, heels and simple sleeveless tops, she makes us believe that looking this good is completely effortless.
We recovered from our up-all-night Friday night just in time to hit the streets outside of NYFW and see how the crowd was weathering a beautiful Sunday afternoon. What did we find? Lots of black and leather (of course, this is NYC), lush floral prints, animal accents, iced coffees, Danielle Bernstein and Dev Hynes in overalls.
Crop tops, crazy prints, and off-duty cool reign supreme on the streets. So yeah, looks like we’ll fit right in.
In true New York fashion, we kicked the weekend off by having brunch and talking shoes with the coolest babes we know. Next, it was on to our favorite NYFW pasttime, scoping street style outside of the tents, running into some of our favorite bloggers, models and multihyphenates along the way. Is this heaven?
This week, Shoe Cult is rising and raging in NYC. We held an open call model casting in Washington Square Park, swarmed the city with a few surprise gift card giveaways, and hit up a few fashion week parties to capture the stylish throngs. We’re here all week folks (literally), so this is the first of many dispatches you can expect as we recruit Cult members everywhere we go.
I traveled like crazy this summer, and while I’m always down for an adventure, I actually love being at home. I’ll be in paradise, and all of a sudden be like ‘I miss my pillow!’ So after hitting New York and Europe in the past two months, I’m ready to take everything I learned on those trips and hunker down in LA to take care of some serious business (well, as serious as we get around here). Sadly, this means I’m missing out on New York Fashion Week, which is kind of a bummer, but several members of the Nasty Gal team are there, so I—and you—can still live vicariously through them!
Two Spring Breakers-obsessed friends, Marissa Klurstein and Keely Murphy (who also happen to be our insanely talented content assistant and intern), set out on a Malibu mission that takes place in a time period where Bonnie & Clyde, Harmony Korine, and Tupac collide. Hop in, enjoy the ride, and don’t forget to
sing rap along to some serious throwback jamz!
Mega-babes (and creative powerhouses), Marylouise Pels and Vanessa Giovacchini, of the first-class DJ/Designer combo, Posso, chronicled what they wore to the Splash House Music Festival in Palm Springs on Style.com. Lucky for us, their sexy-cool getups were head-to-toe Nasty Gal. During their major crowd-pleasing set, Marylouise rocked our Triple Threat Shorts with our Wave Motion Crop Top, and Vanessa wore our Digital Sky Shorts with the Everything She Wants Bustier. If you missed them jamming at Splash House, we’ve got you covered. Happy listening!
We think Marie Jensen might hold the key to being quirky-cool without going over the top: Be yourself. As she wisely advises, “Never ask anyone what’s the right choice for you. Nobody knows but yourself!” One of the ways Marie channels constant cool is by wearing a perfect mix of vintage and new clothes, as chronicled on her seriously awesome blog Nemesis, Babe. Read on to see how the Danish babe combines Nasty Gal pieces with her own vintage threads, and lust away at her effortlessly interesting aesthetic.
For many of us, the first cult we ever join is the cult of fandom that hits when we discover our new favorite band. For me, that moment hit in high school when I discovered the Jesus and Mary Chain, and I’m not sure I ever full recovered (not that I wanted to, of course). So because every cult needs a soundtrack, here are a few tracks that never fail to lull me into trance, and will totally seduce you into drinking the Shoe Cult Kool-Aid. You can thank us later. -Cat
