Thursday, June 12, 2014 A Week With: Ingrid Kesa Invites Us Into Seala’s World
Seala Loko is one of those girls you can’t help but be drawn towards. She answers the door wearing gold Comme des Garçons ballet flats borrowed from her housemate, a t-shirt, Marle tracksuit shorts, and a big, bright smile. Effortless, fresh-faced and magnetizing, it’s no surprise that Seala’s become something of an internet icon, with her Tumblr ask box constantly being flooded with questions about her personal style. When she painted boobs onto an old t-shirt and shared a photo on Instagram, people even asked where they could buy such an item.
A hippie at heart, Seala had all the comforts of a coastal upbringing in Byron Bay before moving to Melbourne a few years ago to study acting and undertake other creative endeavors, including modeling for local designer store Pet Shop Girls.
Although we previously only knew Seala from her online presence, in no time we were drinking tea, sitting on her bedroom floor, talking about boys, and playing dress up: she’s just that kind of girl.

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.
Monday, May 26, 2014 Behind The Scenes: Meet The Cult: Micah Gianneli
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?

Tuesday, May 20, 2014 Behind The Scenes: 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.
