We can barely keep track of all the amazingly on-point articles, songs, and generally-awesome internet gems we discover every week, so instead of just emailing them to our BFFs and calling it a day, we’re sharing our favorite things right here on the blog every Friday. (We’re cool like that.)
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.
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.
Sure, we’re mega fans of sky-high platforms and towering wedges, but sometimes we get flat-out (heh) tired of wearing the same ol’ go-to heels. These days, we’re all about menswear-inspired shoes (think: oxfords and loafers), so we gathered some of our favorite street style looks to show us that, yes, you can dress up even the most basic pair of penny loafers.
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!
1. Pop Rocks
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!
Today is Black Friday, so we thought we’d celebrate the best way we knew how—by listing our top 10 black metal bands of all time. Cue the horns: \m/
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.
Calvin Klein turns 71 today, which means we must pay a major homage to the oh-so-influential designer. In his honor, we pulled together our top 10 CK ads featuring some of the most badass babes in supermodel history. (You’re welcome.)
