Wednesday, March 26, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: Krewella
Whether you’ve realized it or not, you’ve heard of Krewella. Turn on any top 40 radio station, and there’s a (very, very) large chance you’ll hear their impossible-to-forget single “Alive” from their debut album Get Wet. The L.A-via-Chicago EDM trio features singer/songwriter sisters Jahan and Yasmine Yousaf and DJ/producer Kris “Rain Man” Trindl. Not only did their first record release reach number 8 on the U.S. Billboard charts, but they’re also headlining Ultra Music Festival, and Lollapalooza this summer. Whew! So, we caught up with the girls right here in L.A. to talk all-things festival, and let them take some Nasty Gal Collection Spring 2014 pieces for a spin.

Our weekend ruled, dudes. We headed to Orlando to hang with StyleHaul’s most influential beauty and fashion vloggers (like BeyondBeautyStar, HauteBrillance, LoveMelisaMichelle, and SarahBelle93x!) to put on a very Nasty Gal fashion show. All 14 girls hit the Teen Vogue Main Stage at Playlist Live to show off some of our go-to warm weather essentials, and, of course, our killer Nasty Gal Collection Spring 2014. If you have a serious case of FOMO right now, don’t stress. You can listen to the entire runway playlist right here and shop every single look from the show. See? We got you. Check out some our favorite behind-the-scenes pics from this weekend below.

Tuesday, March 25, 2014 Guest Edit: Cailin Hill’s Adventures In Okinawa, Japan
I’ve never actually gone on a vacation before. OK, that’s a lie. Once I went to Costa Rica in the off-season with a guy I wasn’t dating and learned my lesson HARD about off-season vacationing and the rules of platonic relationships while abroad. *ahem* It was complete misery and—beyond the boy troubles—it rained every single day. A total write-off. I’ve been in Tokyo for a year now, and it’s the longest I’ve lived in a country since I began traveling in my early 20s. I went a bit mad and booked a vacation to Okinawa on a whim, which is still in Japan but perhaps the farthest place from Tokyo that I could get to on a 3-day weekend.
Monday, March 24, 2014 DIY: The Beckerman Twins’ Festive Flower Sunnies
Ah, where do we even begin with the Beckerman twins? Cailli and Sam initially caught our eye with their insanely fun and adventurous style blog, but when we found out they also created killer DIY tutorials, we officially fell in love. The Toronto-born twosome has been crafting, sewing, designing, scrapbooking, and drawing their whole lives—they even made faux fur pink and blue raver skirts for their friends in high school—and they haven’t stopped since. “We love making things together and dreaming up fun DIYs. It’s all about enjoying the process of making something new and not worrying too much about the outcome. We love putting on awesome music and getting lost in time while playing with crafts and making one-of-a-kind creations that no one else has!” So, since it’s officially festival season around these parts, we asked them to create the ultimate pair of fest-ready sunglasses, and, well, they certainly delivered. Here, they show us how to create flower sunnies that are inspired by “a hippy love child who goes to Woodstock with a bunch of her friends in their pink vintage Beetle.” Whew. We’re ready to get schooled.
