Monday, May 26, 2014 Behind The Scenes: Meet The Cult: Micah Gianneli
You know those bloggers? The ones with the long, blonde hair, the floppy hats, and that permanent “Who, me?” look on their faces? Micah Gianneli is not one of those girls. Her Instagram feed (with its whopping 80,000 followers) is all cropped black hair, red lips, over-the-knee boots… and helicopters (seriously). Who better to school us on how to stand out in a crowd?

Our pal Esther Kim, the freakishly talented and exceptionally adorable illustrator who has done work for NYLON, Anna Sui, and Nasty Gal, amongst others, is having an art show this Friday and you’re invited! #MEMYSELFIEANDI features work from Kim as well as a bunch of her talented pals, including Yewon Cha, Chocomoo, Foxy Illustrations, Jangkoal, and Junmarie, and opens in Los Angeles at Space 15 Twenty tonight!
To celebrate the launch of the show and accompanying pop-up shop, we asked Esther and a few of the other artists exhibiting to give us their tips on taking the best possible selfies:
Friday, May 23, 2014 NOM NOM NOM: Summertime And The Drankin’ Is Easy
Pour up, drank. Head shot, drank. Though our ideal summer would involve soaking up the sun in Tahiti, drinking umbrella cocktails, and getting fanned by some really buff babe, the reality is that we’ll probably have to stick to our inflatable pools and DIY drinks. But hey, we’re not complaining—especially since we’re going to show you how to upgrade your hunch-punch-red-plastic-cup situation with these easy (and delicious) cocktails. A few sips of these babies and you’ll feel like a beach bum in no time. —Zarna Surti, Junior Fashion Copywriter

Wednesday, May 21, 2014 Role Model: Ariel Beesley
We know what you’re thinking. There’s nothing more annoying than a very beautiful girl who also happens to be totally talented and creative (all in addition to having perfect bone structure). We tend to agree, except in the case of Ariel Beesley, the twenty year old model and musician who not only looks like a dream but happens to creates perfectly dreamy music as well. We can’t help but be charmed by the bleach blonde beauty’s poise, intelligence, and penchant for the darker side of life. The former musical theater nerd recently released Wisp, her third (THIRD) record of sweetly simple yet slightly haunting folk tunes, and we were lucky enough to get our hands on the music video for “Boys Like You” (directed by Aris Jerome) for an exclusive Nasty Gal premiere, as well as pick Ariel’s brain about her inspirations.
