Tuesday, April 8, 2014 Right Now: Australian Fashion Week: Part 1
We’re heerreeee! Nasty Gal just landed in Australia, and we’re at Mercedes-Benz Fashion Week to check out the shows (duh), peep some street style, and hang at some killer parties. So far, we’ve run into our besties How Two Live in head-to-toe holographic ensembles, got inspired at Karla Spetic and Unif M.’s all-white-everything shows, and partied with Romance Was Born under a ceiling of hot pink balloons. Basically, we’re having an awesome time, and this is just the beginning–check back all week long for more Aussie Fashion Week updates!
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 (Almost) Vintage: Happy Birthday, Twin Peaks
It’s hard to believe on this exact date in 1990, the first ever episode of Twin Peaks aired. Twenty-four years later we’re still obsessed with the campy David Lynch-directed TV series, so we decided to create a much-needed tribute to Agent Cooper, Donna Hayward, Audrey Horne and the whole fictional Washington town gang. (Psst: Play this while you scroll through some of our favorite on-screen moments for the full Twin Peaks effect.)
Tuesday, April 8, 2014 Lessons From The Pros: The Basic Rules
We know basics can be, well, basic, but we found three L.A. stylists who proved they can be anything but. Ashley Charbonneau, Djuna Bel, and Ashley Glorioso let us into their West Coast digs and showed us how to mix Nasty Gal pieces into their own (super stellar) wardrobe.

Monday, April 7, 2014 Artsy Fartsy: Yasi Salek’s Take On The ‘Push It’ Exhibition
I know as much about art as my 61-year-old Persian mother knows about Young Thug, which is basically nothing. I took one art history class in college, and I used flash cards with weird acronyms to remember the painters and wrote my entire essay about the way the particular piece of art (I think it was a Degas ballerina or something?) made me feel FEELINGS. That being said, that’s pretty much the way I still look at all art—using an emotional litmus test (with a heavy dose of levity). So, over the weekend I got to see a very awesome group show curated (just so you know “curated” is the worst word in the English language but “put together” didn’t sound ART enough) by Melissa McCaig-Welles that features 21 New York and California-based female artists who focus on confrontational works that mix fine art with a street aesthetic. “Push It” opened on Thursday at ArtNow in New York City, so I went to it and then wrote how I felt about it.

We can barely keep track of all the amazingly on-point articles, songs, and generally-awesome internet gems we discover every week, so instead of just emailing them to our BFFs and calling it a day, we’re sharing our favorite things right here on the blog every Friday. (We’re cool like that.)
