Nasty Gals Party Harder: Meet Mpho

We tapped some of our fave London ladies for lessons on how to kill it this party season.

In honor of our month-long London Pad Pop-Up–and the launch of our latest collection, Nasty Gal Studio–we got the party time 411 from some of London’s best and babeliest. We catch up with Mpho Lebajoa on vintage shopping hacks (hit the costume section), doubling up on socks, and go-to late night lewks.
