It's every bloggers dream wardrobe rolled up into one online marketplace that epitomises cool - yep Nasty Gal has once and for all absconded with my heart. Originally a vintage ebay store, this treasure trove of a website has me refreshing it's 'New In' page daily: I love the styling that's crafted around every piece and the quirky model fact files beside each set of photographs, the result is an enviable array of vintage and affordable designer and high street pieces that have me drooling at my laptop screen, wishing for the legs of a 5ft 10" model and desperately wanting a black hat.
As I'm currently in the US of A I thought it only appropriate to do this post - I had ordered a pair of shoes and a cardigan from Nasty Gal to be shipped here (instead of paying the $35 tracked shipping to the UK) and they were well worth the wait...despite the shoes being a tad hard to walk in. I guess I'll show you guys soon, along with anything else I get whilst I'm here :)
The images above are my absolute favourites from the site at the moment - you have to be quick though (pearls of wisdom right here, as my biology teacher would say) as some of these were only on the 'new in' page for a day or two before sizes small and medium sold out...not that I've been looking obsessively or anything....narh.
I saw the Aztec dress in a small shop in Boston yesterday and I'm really kicking myself that I didn't at least try it on - but who knew Converse were going to give me 25% off and I would've actually been able to afford it? Ho hum, hindsight is a wonderful thing. I think it would look really cool with the chunky cardigan I ordered before and these shoes from Own the Runway that I've got my eye on...oh to be rich!
I could waffle on about each individual item here for ages but you'd probably all want to kill me by the end of it (or worse, unfollow) so I shall stop here!
To summarise: I LOVE NASTY GAL, SOMEBODY PLEASE BUY ME IT ALL :)
Love Ellen xx
