Surfing is hard, but Laura Enever makes it look easy. We asked the Billabong pro surfer, who currently sits at number 10 on the Women’s World Champion Tour rankings, why we should be joining her out there — and why we should keep getting back on the board when times get tough.

Meet The Cult: Micah Gianneli

1-Micah-Head-Nod

You know those bloggers? The ones with the long, blonde hair, the floppy hats, and that permanent “Who, me?” look on their faces? Micah Gianneli is not one of those girls. Her Instagram feed (with its whopping 80,000 followers) is all cropped black hair, red lips, over-the-knee boots… and helicopters (seriously). Who better to school us on how to stand out in a crowd?

BTS of “Lonely Hearts Club”

If you’re anything like us, you probably watched our Nasty Gal original short film Lonely Hearts Club more than a few times, each time feeling more and more connected to the wonderful and exquisite creatures featured on your screen. To fill your (and our) burning desire for more on India, Jessica, Alexa, Flynn, Kesewa and Indigo, as well as Tracy Antonopolous, one half of the directing duo that makes up TANK Productions (along with her partner Asli Baykal), we asked Tracy some questions about her process, her aesthetic, and the 411 on the girls of the LHC from Asli. 

#NastyOrNice Holiday Party!

Let’s just put one thing out there: we don’t throw your average office holiday party. Between our #NastyOrNice photobooth (complete with a wind machine, duh), beer pong table, and bombass custom ice luge, it’s pretty clear we kicked off the holiday season in the most awesome way possible. If you weren’t lucky enough to join us, don’t worry! We’ve got tons of photos that’ll make you feel like you were totally there.

Our Staff’s Gift Shop Picks

This year, we’re all about keeping things weird—especially when it comes to our gift shop. Between our Davie Bowie nail decals and pizza slice beanies, we certainly have no shortage of awesome items. So, we asked our fellow Nasty Gal staffers to pose with their favorite gift shop pieces and explain why they’re putting them at the top of their wish lists this year.

“I’m completely obsessed with this lips pillow because it has a great novelty factor.”

Our Staff’s #ToDieFor Vintage Chanel Picks

The word is finally out, friends. A boatload of vintage Chanel just hit our site, and of course we couldn’t resist checking out a few, erm, items for ourselves. (What? We’re only human.) Here are some of the top picks from our Ultimate Score stash that’ll hopefully stir up some serious spending inspiration. (Not like you need it.)

“Our vintage buyer Liz had a hard time keeping my grubby paws off these vintage Chanel finds. I’ve been known to steal a piece or two from the vintage archives, but alas, this one can be yours.”

With Our Vintage Buyer Liz

Whether she’s talking clothes or pop culture, our vintage buyer Liz Franczak is one of the smartest girls we know. She’s also the brain behind The Ultimate Score, aka the best collection of vintage Chanel to ever exist on this here planet earth. Liz has had a busy month—first she had to put this entire collection together (which was no small feat), then she had to stand guard to make sure none of us tried to steal it (There are no limits to what an honest woman would do for some vintage Chanel—just ask Sophia). Here, Liz fills us in on what makes all of these pieces so special.
