Friday, August 31, 2012 A Week With: Dee, Design Darling and Head Banger

Fuse Shag Jacket, Crawford Dress, Cut It Out Collar Necklace

You may already know Dee from her Chit Chat session or remember her as one of our very first models. Now she’s an integral part of our design team, constantly sketching, cutting and creating the Nasty Gal collection. Inspired by everything from minimalism to heavy metal, Dee’s style is a force to be reckoned with and she just so happens to be one of the coolest girls we know. Take a trip into her closet and the moody lair the bleach blonde babe calls home.

“This is my favorite jacket from our collection. It adds a loud pop of color to a smoldering black dress…or anything really.”

“This is one of my coolest vintage finds ever from one of the world’s greatest designers. It says ‘Music Keeps You Under Control’, and I’m pretty sure Vivienne Westwood made it specifically for me.”

“Music has always been a huge inspiration for my personal style and decor. A rock tee and jeans is my go-to uniform.”

Madrid Wool Hat, Crawford Dress, Vintage Chloe maxi dress & Robert Clergerie wedges

“Lately, I’ve been into more of a minimal aesthetic. I’m surrounded by swatches of bold prints and colors every day, so it feels like a clean slate.”

Vintage jumper, hat and belt, LD Tuttle boots

“I think there should be a statement piece in every outfit you wear. In this case, it’s my ex-boyfriend’s tooth ring.”

“Music and film culture are the biggest influences in my personal and design aesthetic. Motorhead and Black Sabbath are my all-time favorite bands, so everything definitely skews to the dark side.”

“This is my take on the Canadian tux. I’d toss it on to go to the flea market or for a ride on the back of a Harley with a leather jacket.”

Left: Reboot Moto Jacket, vintage top, Miu Miu skirt, LD Tuttle boots, Right: Harness Moto Top, Varsity Moto Skirt

“This colorblock moto is one of the pieces I designed for Weird Science. I wanted something that would seamlessly fit into any wardrobe, but still has an unexpected element. I love the contrast of soft pastels with tough black leather.”

“I’m really into the novelty of all things dark and witchy. It all goes back to music since I grew up on heavy metal. All of these were gifts from my friends, which makes them even more special to me.”
