Wednesday, January 15, 2014 Nasty Gals Do It Better: In The Look Sharp Dress
Just when you think an off-the-shoulder bodycon isn’t work appropriate, we give you the Nasty Gal Look Sharp Dress. The crisp white collar gives it an edgy-yet-still-buttoned-up look, and, we have to say, we’re lovin’ how Damsel In The Dress blogger Cynthia Recto styled her frock with some polka dot tights and Jeffrey Campbell Melina Cutout Boots. Check out more snaps of her ensemble below!
Tuesday, January 14, 2014 Top Tens: Ways To Wear Menswear-Inspired Shoes
Sure, we’re mega fans of sky-high platforms and towering wedges, but sometimes we get flat-out (heh) tired of wearing the same ol’ go-to heels. These days, we’re all about menswear-inspired shoes (think: oxfords and loafers), so we gathered some of our favorite street style looks to show us that, yes, you can dress up even the most basic pair of penny loafers.
Tuesday, January 14, 2014 Right Now: Little White Dresses
Yes, we know it’s only the middle of January, but we’re already tired of our all-black ensembles. So, we thought we’d switch it up with something a little fresher: little white dresses. We gathered some LWD inspiration and found that a crisp white frock can look killer paired with sneakers, stilettos and everything in between.

Monday, January 13, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Bad Bishes
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“Can I just be real for a second? Even though I will forever have a thing for Mick Jagger’s moves (who cares if he’s 100 years old?) and can’t get enough of those weird-ass, crystal-encrusted Margiela masks Kanye’s been wearing, the ladies always do it better. So I thought I’d pay homage to the greatest femmes to ever grace the stage. Yup—hide the dudes and prepare to sing the hell out of the ultimate guilty pleasure playlist featuring Whitney, Britney, Debbie, Diana, and even a little Dolly. This one’s for the gurlzzz.”

Monday, January 13, 2014 Guest Edit: Steak At Agenda Long Beach
Anyone who’s anyone was at Long Beach Agenda this week. JK, it’s pretty much just my friends, industry peers, and some hot blogger chicks who are still nursing their hangovers, but whatever—they’re everyone to me and this post. If you’re unfamiliar with Agenda, it’s best explained as an invite and industry-only trade show where brands come to showcase what they’ll be releasing to the public over the next year. Attendees range from press outlets to big box buyers who shop for new brands and find out about upcoming drops and trends. If you put the business stuff aside, you’ll see a bunch of young movers and shakers in town for a few nights catching up, trying to forget the 13-hour florescent-lit work day with a few beers and then waiting outside a hushed-up venue in the wee hours of the morning to catch some secret show the event has lined up. Agenda is awesome before you get there, grueling during the daylight hours, and awesome again by the time you leave.
