Flashback—2012’s Wild Ride

Happy Holidays! Nasty Gal has really “grown up” over the past year—a challenging and truly wild ride. Without your support, we couldn’t have accomplished all that we have in 2012. And what might that be, you ask? Let’s take a scroll back (er, down) in time together… We Hired More Than 100 People! We hired

NGFW on MTV Style

When our spaceship landed on the Westway’s dance floor in NYC last weekend, MTV Style jumped in on the party with us. Swept up in the madness and the glory, I realized that the pace in music I like is the same as what I love about fashion—an attitude that elevates confidence but doesn’t take

The Future Is Now

Today marks the beginning of a new era at Nasty Gal. Until today, Nasty Gal has been a place that we’ve curated things that already existed. Now, for the first time, we’re creating things.

I designed the first version of the Nasty Gal website (the first and only website I’ve designed to date), as

The Bang Over

After two weeks solid of travel, I’d spent enough time in mirror-covered hotel rooms to drive myself insane. First day back and sorely jet-lagged, I dragged myself into Goodform to see the magical Rebecca to help me concoct a way to cover at least half of my face. Now it’s onto the never-ending debate: do

MSNBC Gets Nasty

I had the pleasure of meeting with MSNBC recently to be interviewed for one of my favorite shows, Your Business. Boorrrring, I know — but while fashion is a ton of fun, running a business is a challenge of near-biblical proportions. I didn’t study business, and until I started selling vintage on eBay years ago,
