Friday, April 20, 2012 Sophia’s Corner: PARTY PICS!
First of all… a big thank you goes out to all of you girls and guys for joining our long-awaited relaunch party! Everyone looked awesome – so many babes all around. We literally had no idea how insanely huge this party would turn out, and I have to say it proves we do it better. Check out the party snaps from Mark Hunter / Cobrasnake for some serious style and attitude inspo!
Friday, April 6, 2012 Sophia’s Corner: Movin’ On Up
It’s been a long road since leaving eBay cold-turkey to launch the Nasty Gal website in 2008. At that time, I was the only employee and was still steaming, shipping, styling — you name it…everything. I designed the first version of the Nasty Gal website (the first and only website I’ve designed to date), as well as the first-ever Nasty Gal blog. See that face up in the right hand corner? That’s Dee. Dee modeled for me on eBay as a teenager, then grew up, went to fashion school, and is now here in LA working in our super-new, super-exciting Design Department. That’s right. Nasty Gal will be launching our very own collection later this year! But back to the blog. Don’t want to overshadow how exciting today’s launch of the new blog is.
Wednesday, April 4, 2012 Sophia’s Corner: 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 we tuck our bangs into or out of sunglasses? Thoughts?
Thursday, June 24, 2010 Sophia’s Corner: 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, I had no idea that the entrepreneurial bug would bite my ass so hard. Anyway, It’s cool to make my parents proud (Hey Ma, I’m on TV!). But I beg of you, please, don’t watch it in HD.
Friday, February 12, 2010 Sophia’s Corner: I Meant It + Graphic Designer Hunt!
So…we’re halfway into February and I’ve posted what, an entire three blogs this year? So much for New Year’s resolutions! I’m trying, I swear. Actually, I’m super excited to introduce soon a new personality on the blog who will be filling you in regularly with behind-the-scenes action, lusts and musts, previews, general musings, and more. We’ll also be introducing you to members of our team — from Stacey, our amazing Stylist to Paul our mega-photographer. What began as a solo project is now a blossoming team of truly talented folks. And we’re growing!
In fact, we’re now looking to hire a Graphic Designer to work directly with me to create email blasts, website graphics, and more. If you’re located near Emeryville and have 2+ years designing for web, email firstname.lastname@example.org for more info!
PS: The photo above is one I took of Nick, our amazing styling intern who finished his internship today–but not without a few tears being shed. We’ll miss you Nick!
(More soon I swear!)
