Wednesday, November 13, 2013 Nasty Guys: Karl Lagerfeld
We’re on a serious vintage Chanel kick here at NGHQ, which means we must pay homage the man behind it all—Mr. Karl Lagerfeld.

Tuesday, November 12, 2013 Behind The Scenes: 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).
