Thursday, November 13, 2014 Vintage Goldmine: CHANEL
Every Monday for the next five weeks, we’re premiering an insanely-chic collection of vintage from an iconic luxury designer. We scoured the world for the vintage best of the best to curate a special selection of truly rare and unique pieces, just for you (digging for treasure is what we do best, after all). With each goldmine, we’ll be posting a visual timeline showcasing the evolution of that brand. First up: Chanel. From the early days of tweed and pearls, to Karl Lagerfeld’s bold and colorful new visions, we’ve broken down Coco’s legacy from beginning to present day (and added in a few of her famous quotes). Read and for a fashion lesson like no other.

Thursday, November 13, 2014 Right Now: Where the Wild Things Are
At Nasty Gal, we love a savage spirit. Like you, we’re unconventional—we’re part of a movement that celebrates the outcasts, black sheep, and weirdos that make this world great. In honor of our people, we gathered together 12 of the most unbridled, exciting up-and-comers across creative industries to talk tech, sex, identity, and what makes this epoch so important. You’re gonna want to hear what they have to say… Read on!

Wednesday, November 12, 2014 Girl Crush: Anny Wang
Artist/designer Anny Wang‘s creations are so next level, we had to have them for ourselves, which is why we recruited her to whip up some illustrations for our gift shop. We chatted with the Swedish visionary about her inspiration here!
Monday, November 10, 2014 Designers: Peggy Noland x Nasty Gal
You’d be hard-pressed to find anyone else in the world quite like the amazing Peggy Noland. With just a glance at her shaved ‘do which, at the crown, magically cascades into long, flowing locks, you can tell that homegirl is truly in a world of her own—and it’s a world we want to invade. If you don’t already know and love Peggy’s designs like we do, you’re probably a fan without even knowing it because you’re definitely a fan of some of her musically inclined clients. The Kansas City-native has designed many an over-the-top stage piece for Rihanna, Miley Cyrus, Brooke Candy, Sky Ferreira, Ssion, CSS, Peaches, Hunx and His Punx, Gossip, Yelle—the list goes on and on. Now, we’re proud to say that we can add ourselves to that esteemed list with the three exclusive looks (a puff-paint rose emblazoned vintage denim and leather jacket and a candy coated oversized sweatshirt) that our girl Peggy designed, just for us. To celebrate, we had a chat with the queen of outrageousness herself about puff paint, normcore, and the importance of humor in fashion.
Thursday, November 6, 2014 Now and Then: Audrey Hepburn Hotness
With the holiday season upon us, we’re getting pumped about all of the incredible party gear we’ll be sporting over the next few months. That might be why one of the many reasons we’re so enamored with Audrey Hepburn, the undeniable queen of beauty and allure. Take this classic photo of her as Holly Golightly in Breakfast At Tiffany’s and this After Party dress for instance. We’re definitely going to be integrating some old school Hollywood into our wardrobe this season (those starlets knew how to party). It just goes to show that everything old is new again. And again, and again, and again…
