Tuesday, January 7, 2014 Top Tens: Über Layering
Let’s be real—most of the U.S. is on sub-zero temperature lockdown right now, and even though we personally aren’t under a cold spell (love you, L.A.), we thought we’d give props to our East Coast and Midwestern ladies for braving it out there in the icy tundra. Check out some of our favorite uber-layered looks, which prove that, yes, you can look cute even when it’s freaking cold outside.
Monday, January 6, 2014 Studio Soundtracks: #MusicMonday: Psych Rock
Every Monday we send you a killer playlist straight from NGHQ!
“These are some of my favorite songs, and the playlist to my life! It embodies the free spiritedness of the ’60s, the psychedelia of the ’70s, and the birth of heavy and psychedelic metal. It’s a culmination of all things celebrated during a time of great political and cultural upheaval—rock ‘n roll, LSD, leather, love, freedom!”
—Alex Baldwin, Production Coordinator, Dresses and Outerwear
Monday, January 6, 2014 Nasty Gals In The Wild: On Tour With Kanye West
It’s not often one of our Nasty Gal models ditches her L.A. digs to go on tour with Kanye West, but when Danielle Alcaraz joined the Yeezus tour as a visual artist, dancer and model in October of last year, we had to know more. “It was more of a theatrical performance rather than a typical hip-hop show. We were a live art installment.” Thirty shows later, Danielle is back in town with some serious stories to share. Check out some of her backstage snaps (and killer Nasty Gal ensembles!) below.

Thursday, January 2, 2014 Nasty Gals Do It Better: In The On Pointe Maxi Dress
OK, we know it’s snowing (almost) everywhere in the U.S. right now, but we had to share this head-to-toe Nasty Gal ensemble from Jill Wallace a.k.a Little Black Boots. She paired the silver For Love & Lemons On Pointe Maxi Dress with black Schutz Libertine Pumps and the Wild Thing Faux Fur Coat for a romantic-yet-badass look that you can wear straight from the forests of Big Sur (above) to a cocktail party, and we love that. Who said you can’t hike in heels?
