1. THIS SERIOUS TALK ABOUT GIRL TALK

We can barely keep track of all the amazingly on-point articles, songs, and generally-awesome internet gems we discover every week, but instead of just emailing them to our BFFs and calling it a day, we’re going to start sharing them with y’all right here on the blog every Friday. (We’re cool like that.) Today, we honor the end of Women’s History Month with a very female-friendly edition of “Top Ten Things We Loved This Week.” Ch-ch-ch-check it outtt.

Spring Break Forever

1. RIDIN’ HIGH

Now that winter is officially over, we only have one thing on our minds: SPRANG BREAKKK. From babes in bikinis to endless beach parties, there’s a million and one reasons to celebrate—here’s to the MTV glory days where beer koozies and bad decisions reigned supreme. 

Movie Scenes That We Wished Happened At Our Prom

Whether you were a nerd, queen bee, stoner or total freak, high school was certainly an experience for all of us. Then, after four long years being trapped in the suburbs, it all culminates into one big moment: prom. But here’s the thing: movies have tricked us into thinking something super major will happen on the big day. (See: everyone suddenly breaking out into a choreographed dance routine, the shyest girl in school getting named prom queen, or, gulp, someone getting eaten by a vampire.) The truth is, it’s probably going to be a heck of a lot of chaperones, awkward dancing, and avoiding people you don’t like, but here are top 10 moments that we wished happened at our school dance.

Über Layering

Let’s be real—most of the U.S. is on sub-zero temperature lockdown right now, and even though we personally aren’t under a cold spell (love you, L.A.), we thought we’d give props to our East Coast and Midwestern ladies for braving it out there in the icy tundra. Check out some of our favorite uber-layered looks, which prove that, yes, you can look cute even when it’s freaking cold outside.

Ah, we made it. It’s the last day of 2013, and looking back, we had some seriously stellar moments here at Nasty Gal. We released two more self-made collections, collaborated with Lazy Oaf, and shared our biggest vintage Chanel stash of all time—and we couldn’t have done it without you! Yes, the past twelve months have been amazing thanks to support from fellow Nasty Gals around the world, and we can’t thank you enough for believing in what we do. Here’s to keeping it weird in 2014!

Classic Records Every Gal Should Own

So, you just got a record player—and now you need records. But… where do you start? Good question, so we enlisted the help of music expert/Nasty Gal social media maven Isabella to help us track down the top 10 records every girl needs to kick off her collection. (Think of these as classic albums that are sure to stand the test of time.) So, Isabella headed out to the iconic Amoeba Music store in Hollywood to pick out some of her favorite albums. Quick tip for scoring amazing vinyl: “When you buy used, it’s totally cool to check out the record and make sure there aren’t any scratches. Re-issues are great too and very easy to find. Check your local radio station or paper for record swaps. This is the jam if you want to score some rare vinyl, and you’ll probably learn about some awesome stuff you haven’t heard yet. Also, dig through dollar record bins—you can find some gems in there.” All right, let’s get to it!

1. The Annie Leibovitz Shoot For Vanity Fair

Guys, Miley Cyrus turns 21 tomorrow, so we had to show our Role Model a little bit of birthday love! She’s already had quite the year, so we’d thought it’d be hella appropriate to look back at some of her most iconic moments as of late–and get excited for the ones to come.
