Wednesday, October 9, 2013 DIY: DIY Thigh Highs
We’re already mega obsessed with Studio Production Assistant Linda Park’s playful style, so when sought out a DIY mastermind to take our traditional fall accessories to the next level, we knew exactly who to call. A cozy knit thigh high has always been our go-to cold weather staple, but Linda found a killer way to kick them up a notch—with embroidery! “I’ve always been into crafty things like knitting and started embroidering less than a year ago. I’m not naturally gifted in drawing or painting so embroidering is sort of my alternative to that—all you really need is patience.” We think we can manage that.

Friday, October 4, 2013 Right Now: Paris Fashion Week Street Style
The time has come: This is Marie Jensen‘s last installment of street style photos from the Spring 2014 fashion weeks. Before she heads back to her native Denmark, she rounded up sartorial efforts seen on the concrete catwalk in Paris. Surprisingly, the aesthetic this year was slightly different than years past. Usually the city attracts a lot of dressing in dark colors, pulling menswear inspiration, and hones the native-aesthetic of “Parisian Chic.” Although those styles didn’t completely stray, the scene was much more lively this year, with color, texture, and volume galore.
Thursday, October 3, 2013 Lessons From The Pros: Ziggy Stardust
In a ideal world, David Bowie’s Ziggy Stardust makeup would be everyday wear, but depending on where you work, you might not be able to pull it off (here at Nasty Gal, we wouldn’t bat a well-lined eye). But since Halloween is right around the corner, and it’s the one night a year when unleashing your inner freak is not only accepted but encouraged, we tapped makeup artist extraordinaire Jen Budner to walk us through the steps for creating your own perfect lightning-strikes look.
