Chanel Throws a Beach Party
By Jauretsi
Last night, Chanel went homestyle with a chic Barbecue bonanza and quite possibly the best party of the week (although the week is still young). Cohosted by Art.sy, the bash took place in a tent behind Soho House Miami Beach with a gaggle of fabulous folks like Pharrell Williams, Damien Hirst, and Lenny Kravitz (yes, even Martha Stewart showed up to the beachside gathering). Me? I was tucked away in a booth with cool queen of the web, Sophia Amoruso of Nasty Gal bopping our heads to DJ Nick Cohen’s eclectic mash up set including “Girls” by Beastie Boys to ”Somethings Gotta Hold on Me” by Etta James. It wasn’t until Dolly Parton’s “9 to 5” dropped that we noticed a fellow lady with great legs stand up and let loose to tear the rug. Go Demi!

eBay Ninja Tricks: Nasty Gal’s Sophia Amoruso
By Jauretsi
The New York Times recently had an informative article on online shopping. In the endless game of “searches”, the newspaper recommends typing in synonyms when searching out a product. For example, type in “coat” instead of “jacket”. “On sites like eBay, try leaving out words” writes NYT, “if you are looking for an Yves Saint Laurent handbag on eBay, search for ‘Saint Laurent’ or ‘Laurent bag’.”
Sophia Amoruso of the e-commerce site Nasty Gal adds to the tip: “If you search for ‘Yves Saint Laurent,’ you’ll be fighting over pieces with a bigger group of people,” she says while suggesting to purposefully… [MORE] misspell brand names as well. “Think of what an uninformed person might list a really great designer piece as, and you can get an amazing gem for an incredible price.” 
Last but not least tip for your aggressive Fashion odyssey, you should know that eBay Fashion also lets shoppers search by taking a cellphone picture of a fabric to find similar designs. To read the rest of the piece, visit New York Times' Online Shopping Tips for the Holidays.

By Jauretsi

The glorious day has come and gone. Happy Post Halloween! Here’s a peephole into some cool folk who did it their way. Style Editor Rosie Dargenzio thanked Pippa Lord for guidance on the “severed finger cookies” (bottom left). Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso captured a brief look at the tools of the trade while Bonfire Beach Kids proudly presented their pumpkin display. We hope everyone had a special day.

The Nasty Gals in New York
Here’s Nasty Gal’s founder Sophia Amoruso (right) and NG’s stylist, Stacey Nishimoto (left), at Lincoln Center to attend Mara Hoffman’s runway show. In 2006, Sophia started an eBay store selling highly curated vintage gems which had hip chicks clamoring for more. Finally she opened her own site and nurtured it to new heights. Five years later, the online shop has expanded beyond vintage, with new clothes, shoes, and accessories. Inc. magazine rated Nasty Gal the fastest growing retailer in the country in 2012. Read the feature in Forbes, calling her a “fashion phenom”. We just love a stylish entrepreneur!

Red Shades

How sexy are these oversized Leonard Paris cherry red sunnies? It harkens back to the sexy 70’s mom sitting next to her deluxe station wagon. We especially love the silver pyramid stud details with inset gold metal trims. The vintage pair is available now for $110 on the Nasty Gal site. The website is founded by Sophia Amoruso, who got her start selling on eBay, then created her own little empire. Read about the savvy entrepreneur in Forbes this month and prepare to be inspired. In the meantime, snag these beautiful red shades, since the vintage pieces are one-of-a-kind and move fast. There’s plenty of new clothes and accessories on the site as well, so feel free visit Nasty Gal for the whole shebang.
