Southern Italy With Charlie Cuscito

1-1.JPG

It’s pretty obvious that 17-year-old Charlie Cuscito knows a thing or two about putting an outfit together (see: photo above), but what you can’t see is that she’s also linked to one of the biggest icons in the fashion industry, Anna Dello Russo. The Vogue Japan editor-at-large also doubles as Charlie’s aunt (so cool!) and her eye for on-point ensembles is paving the way for Charlie’s future in fashion. (She also hopes to attend the London Academy of Dramatic and Music Arts one day, NBD.) As she finishes up her last year of high school, we asked Charlie to give us a snapshot of what it’s like living in her hometown of Bari, Italy—and from the looks of it, it seems pretty dang awesome. Check out how Charlie mixed her all-black aesthetic and breezy Italian ‘tude in our Nasty Gal Collection Fall 2013  below. Bonus? That gorge Southern Italy coast as her backdrop.

Meet Our Design Team!

If you live anywhere outside of Los Angeles, chances are the leaves have started to fall. Summer’s over, which means you can start building your dream fall wardrobe! Our Design Team is here to help. With their Nasty Gal Collection Fall 2013, you can indulge in leather, metallics, and even some super on-trend oil slick material. We were so proud of the collection that we had to ask the team to take a break from their super hectic schedules to come down in the studio and get a lil’ freaky in front of the camera with us. As an added bonus, a few of the design darlings sent over some of their super talented fashion illustrations. Hope you enjoy their sketches and we know you’re going to really enjoy the Nasty Gal Collection pieces that will be landing in your closets soon.

Carly Is Obsessed With Our Nasty Gal Collection Suspension Leather Skirt

Carly Robertson is two things: a superwoman and one stylish-ass gal. As the administrative assistant to our VP Design and our VP Global Sourcing & Production, she manages to get it all done and look really cute while she’s at it. She’s already immersed herself in a new fall wardrobe, and the Nasty Gal Collection Suspension Leather Skirt fits perfectly into it. As a standalone piece or an awesome complement to a crop top, this Nasty Gal Collection piece is sure to fill all your fall wardrobe dreams.

Nicole Turns Heads In Our Nasty Gal Collection Flutter Effect Leather Dress

Nicole Phung, our PR Assistant, never fails to amaze on the daily outfit front. She’s our go-to girl for advice on streetwear, skater skirts, and creepers; she knows exactly how to tie all those different aesthetics together. When Nicole laid eyes on our show-stopping Nasty Gal Collection Flutter Effect Leather Dress, she knew she had to have it. We love how she styled the dress with a simple black snapback and cutout moto boots, making it totally applicable to wear day-to-night. Hashtag #nastygal to show us if you dress it up or dress it down; either way we want to see how amazing you look in Nicole’s favorite Nasty Gal Collection dress!

If you follow our #GIRLBOSS on Instagram, you may have already admired Stephanie Surtida‘s work. She caught our attention by ‘gramming a really impressive sketch of Sophia, but won our hearts with her fashion illustrations (in which she also chronicled some of her favorite looks at Burning Man). It seemed a natural fit to have the LA-based artist illustrates our inspiring Nasty Gal Fall Collection, and here she talks with us about piglets, Santee Alley, and, duh, what to wear to Burning Man.

Homecoming Babes

Let us clue you in on something: It’s a total myth that you need a date for the dance. Sure, if you’re just there to make out under the disco ball, then by all means—go for it. But if you want to dance, scream, laugh, raise hell, and have the best night of your life, leave the dudes at home. This homecoming, the girls just wanna have fun.

Rising & Raging & Rock On

I traveled like crazy this summer, and while I’m always down for an adventure, I actually love being at home. I’ll be in paradise, and all of a sudden be like ‘I miss my pillow!’ So after hitting New York and Europe in the past two months, I’m ready to take everything I learned on those trips and hunker down in LA to take care of some serious business (well, as serious as we get around here). Sadly, this means I’m missing out on New York Fashion Week, which is kind of a bummer, but several members of the Nasty Gal team are there, so I—and you—can still live vicariously through them!
