A Peek Inside Our Denim Lookbook Shoot

IMG_6985

Colorful furs, bright striped knits, and buttons on butts—what could go better with our new line of denim? Because we know that the perfect pair of jeans should look and feel great in any situation, we decided to put ours to the test. From rooftops to kiddie pools, Nasty Gal’s new denim line passed with flying colors. Don’t believe us? Check out our behind the scenes pics from the lookbook shoot

Meg Myers Heads to Lollapalooza

Pop and EDM and rap are great, but if your ears are asking for something with a little more mood, direct your attention to Meg Myers. The Los Angeles-based artist is often compared to Fiona Apple and Alanis Morrissette, turning out music that is as dark as it is mesmerizing, with captivating music videos to match. Her video for her newly released “Desire” touches on rebellion, brutal honesty, and some pretty serious levitation. Last week, Meg headed out to Chicago to spread some of her magic at Lollapalooza and she was kind enough to snap some photos for us!

Pop art aficionados take some time out of your day to remember the greatest in the game. It’s Andy Warhol’s big 8-6 today and we think everyone needs to recognize it. Best known for reappropriating celebrity, culture and advertisement as art, Warhol is an icon to art lovers the world over. He was the founder of Interview and undoubtedly the reason we have the pop art effect on Photobooth. If you’re in LA, make your way over to MOCA in September to check out Andy Warhol: Shadows, an exhibition that presents one Warhol painting in 102 parts!

Avery Monsen Gets Emojinal

Emojis are the lifeblood of worldwide communication. When you really think about it, nothing is more important than expressing your ideas through tiny illustrations of really pointless things. Nobody understands that better than Avery Monsen, a comedian / Vine celeb / really funny author out of New York. Avery’s newest creation, Rejected Emojis, puts all those preloaded icons to shame by serving up such creations as “cool pube” and “a bald man reclines on a giant slice of pizza.” We caught up with Avery the other day and tackled important subjects like smiling red ogres, emoji freedom, and the power of evasive texting.

It’s never good to compare yourself to others. But who said anything about comparing your favorite clothes to your favorite photos? Bianca Luini is the image guru behind Where I See Fashion, a blog that celebrates the similarities between clothing and photography. Bianca has been on our radar for quite some time, but we recently got the Milan-born fashion design student to look through some of our images. And while she was working, we snagged an interview with her, too!

The Clothing Coven Part Two

For most of us, New York in the summertime conjures up images of overcrowded subways, lost tourists, and the fear that the humidity may never go away. Somehow, the Clothing Coven girls have shown us a different side of New York, one full of Coney Island weekend trips and Sex Museum photo ops. Last week, we heard Mallory Llewellyn’s side of the Clothing Coven’s NYC work-cation. Now, we’re getting Tallulah Willis’ take!

Fringe With Benefits

Wearing fringe is like walking through one of those beaded door curtains that your one weird aunt still has in her vacation home in the desert. Like that beaded curtain, fringe is multifunctional: slightly protective, kinda funky, and above all else, transformative. In just a few words, fringe is wearable entertainment. We’re suggesting you put on a show.

The 90s were good for a lot of questionable things (like AOL and Hit Clips and 98 Degrees), but the decade also put out a few shining stars. Topping the list is the tattoo choker (along with jellies, Lip Smackers, and mood rings, of course). If you didn’t stack three or four chokers on your neck at all times, you were basically irrelevant. And don’t even get us started on the matching wrist and ring versions of the choker. If you had those, you were the queen. Upon research of tattoo chokers, though, we found a whole world of throat wear (can we call it that? is that gross?) from throughout the decades. Scroll through for some serious inspo and try not to choke up.
