TRENDING: floral that packs a punch!

26 Mar

 One of the most eye catching trends this season is big impact floral. Let it be known that it’s not the cutesy kind either – but more like the sassy, full of attitude type! Fully saturated hues + large scale flowers are loudly taking over everything from textiles to tableware (which, I don’t mind at all because I seriously love this trend + I do own #11 myself!).  But make no mistake about it: this isn’t a dainty or delicate motif – these blooms pack a serious punch!

LOVING: Nasty Gal

24 Mar

I’ve recently discovered the most amazing shop, and wish I had sooner… alot sooner. Within seconds of browsing around I obviously needed everything from the website, but in the end, narrowed it down to this + that (not to mention, which shipped super fast). I feel like I’ve struck fashion gold, and now can’t wait to share the awesome-ness with you!

Nasty Gal – a funky clothing shop inspired by none other than soul/funk/rock legend, Betty Davis. With inspiration being drawn from such a vivacious, larger-than-life icon, a shop will naturally offer up the wildest, sexiest + most unique pieces. And the best part about it is, you can look bad ass without breaking the bank. Love it!

Founder/owner Sophia Amoruso started up Nasty Gal Vintage in 2006, which had its’ early beginnings as an Ebay store. She ran the entire business on her own from start to finish: from seeking out those one-of-a-kind vintage gems, to styling, shooting and spreading the word. Nasty Gal has grown even larger since, and now has a range of creative talents (and friends) working in the team. Read Sophia’s inspirational story here.

What I love? Nasty Gal continues to create unique, knock-out pieces that ooze with a powerful, feminine attitude. And they have the coolest vintage finds a girl could ever want! All I gotta say is, I can’t wait for my next purchase.
