Thursday, June 28, 2012 Nasty Gals In The Wild: Meet Laine!

We were lucky enough to meet our latest vintage muse through her BFF and fellow Nasty Gal, Bonnie. She may look like a sweet California girl, but she’s also totally fearless with a knack for playing weird instruments and dressing however she feels – no matter what others may think. Get the lowdown on Laine’s favorite beauty products, bank robber dreams and everything in between.

Astrological sign:

Aquarius

If I could live in any era, It’d be…

The Seventies! I love the style of that decade, and the world seemed much simpler then. I like to fantasize about a time when there was no Facebook or Twitter or any of that. There is something so great about being fully connected to whoever you are with in any given moment, and not caught up in all the cyber nonsense.

My style philosophy…

Never fear. Even if you feel self-conscious, just rock it. I think confidence is the best accessory, even more so than the perfect pair of shoes!

The article of clothing that best sums up my style…

These amazing emerald green cowboy boots with a studded harness that I swiped from my mom. I’m all about them.

I’m secretly obsessed with…

Learning odd instruments. I haven’t mastered any of them, but I have quite the list. My top two are the lap steel guitar and the Theremin.

My most treasured possession…

This sounds super cheesy, but it’s a stuffed Winnie the Pooh that my dad gave me when I was a baby. It’s the only thing I’ve kept this long.

When I was a kid, I wanted to be…

A bank robber.

My first concert was…

This old punk band called X. I saw them at the Canyon Club with my mom when I was 12, and it was one of the most fun nights I’ve ever had.

My theme song is…

Can I pick two? I’m picking two. “Hey Lover” by Blake Mills and “Demon Days” by Gorillaz.

Three beauty products I couldn’t live without…

1. Tarte Smooth Operator concealer. It’s the only thing that keeps my dark circles at bay.
2. Philosophy Supernatural powder. It makes my skin look dewy and flawless.
3. Murad Clarifying Cleanser. It’s a true miracle worker.

If I could steal one thing from the vintage shoot, it’d be…

Everything? Well, if I have to choose one thing, it’d be the floor-length fuchsia kimono. Paired with my chunky black Frye boots, I don’t think I’d ever change again.
