Friday, May 11, 2012 California Dreaming: Working For The Weekend
With the weekend just minutes away, the most pressing question at Nasty Gal HQ is, “What are up to this weekend?” As it turns out, there’s a ton of cool stuff going on, so we thought we’d let you in on what we’ll be up to.
Wednesday, April 25, 2012 California Dreaming: The Story Of A Patch Of Skye
Aussie darling Skye McRae’s favorite color is rainbow. She lives by the ocean in Tamarama, Sydney, considers California her second home and loves Sunday afternoons. Skye is the voice behind the blog, A Patch Of Skye - a platform for creative escapism and, more importantly, a space where she can drift into a mystical world where she matches beautiful images with poetic poses. Her blog is a visual diary that encapsulates Skye’s inspirations: “Poetry and people’s secret thoughts are what inspire me most. Those ideas combined with soft, whimsical imagery that talks to the viewer through the emotions that they bring”.
We leave you with one of Skye’s visual tales.
Tuesday, April 17, 2012 California Dreaming: The Coachella Edition
Coachella is always an incredible desert oasis where the real world seems to disappear.
You have your pick of basically every band you’d want to see, from bobbing your head to The Black Keys, dancing in the hot sun to Santigold (remember the sunblock!) or being mesmerized by Florence and the Machine as she twirls on stage. The best part is that you feel like you’re in this crazy fashion montage set to the Coachella soundtrack since you can’t escape the festival babes as they weave through the crowds, and lounge-slash-pose on the grass field. Here’s a glimpse into our sun-soaked (and sunburnt) weekend.
Tuesday, April 3, 2012 California Dreaming: Rose Bowl Flea Market
On the Second Sunday of every month, you’ll usually find us (and every other vintage-crazed girl) at the Rose Bowl Flea Market in Pasadena.
Of course, one of our favorite things about the Rose Bowl is getting to spot some of the coolest street style in LA. We always end up snapping a ton of photos while we’re on the hunt for vintage treasures. Here’s some of the sweet stuff we found on our latest trip!
We spotted this girl sifting through the racks in an epic denim jacket with a leather cross and collar. Badass doesn’t even begin to describe it. And how rad are these neon smiley face rings? They brought us back to the days we proudly rocked slap bracelets…in a good way.
