We’ve always been quick to admit that we look directly to the past for style inspiration and it’s especially prevalent in our latest lookbook, You, Me and the Moon, which draws from our favorite sultry style icons of the ’60s. Take this photo of Jane Birkin looking nothing short of dreamy in an elaborately patterned blanket coat and our Pendleton Los Ojos Blanket, for instance. It just goes to show that everything old is new again—and again, and again, and again…
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.
In the digital world, it’s hard to see beyond strategic selfies and personal promo. But Marissa and I believe that Instagram and Twitter and all of those things can be pretty useful. A few years ago, the two of us created personal Instagram accounts, where we posted pictures of our crazy outfits and cool friends or, in my case, my really good-looking golden retriever. Instagram was fun, but not exactly professional. Then, Marissa had a genius idea and within a couple days she had Cur8ed, an Instagram profile where she posted her favorite editorials and reinvented them on her own body. It was genius and I was jealous. So, on a car ride with her, Marissa encouraged me to start something too. Fast forward a few months and I was the proud owner of Copy Lab, something I’ve deemed “a social experiment on taste and perception” but is, in all reality, Photoshopping designer goods onto famous paintings. Instafame still hasn’t hit either of us, but we’re having fun doing it, and it’s a lot more fun to create original content than it is to take millions of selfies (eventhough, yeah, we still do that on occasion). Marissa and I had a conversation about all things Insta a few days ago and thought we would share! –Chris Rellas
We just talked about the ever-changing little black dress. So, in an effort to be fair, we’re going to recognize the other side of the spectrum. Tons of people already ascribe to #ALLWHITEEVERYTHING, but it’s not just about head-to-toe monochromatism. People like Ivania Carpio surround their lives in white, adorning themselves in minimal accessories and designing their living spaces to look like that scene in Charlie’s Angels where Natalie sneaks into Redstar’s computer in an all-white unitard. No one ever gets that reference, so here, watch. We rounded up some inspo images in case you’re thinking that white might be the non-color you’ve been looking for!
We could plaster flags all over our bodies, but for this 4th, we prefer a subtler approach. Whether you’re a poolside patriot or watching fireworks from dry land, we suggest pairing simple reds, whites and blues with Budweiser and BBQ. Pulling out that perfect, classic American brand tee isn’t a bad idea either. Because we never want to celebrate our independence from the Internet, we scoured our favorite sites for the best in American attire.
The Internet never ceases to amaze us. Today’s obsession is Bianca Luini’s Where I See Fashion, a project that draws parallels between high fashion images and pictures of landscapes, architecture, or whatever Bianca deems fit. We’ve got to admit, we wish we had thought of this first.
Say hello to the ultimate summer collaboration: Nasty Gal x Shakuhachi! We’ve got silky rompers, breezy dresses, cut-out bikinis and slip-on floral sandals, but—before you start swiping up our exclusive gear—find out all the deets behind this killer collection straight from the Aussie label’s lead designer, Jessie White.
NYFW is wrapping up, so we’re coming away totally inspired. So many beautiful people, incredible clothes and off-the-chain parties. And also, so many laughs.
The East Coast Nasty Gals (and guys) have been repping full force for NYFW, whether under the tents or striking a pose on the concrete runway. Clearly, we can’t get enough—especially of three guys in Mort hats.
