When I lived with my housemates during final year of uni, my good friend Sara (have a read of Sara’s blog here) introduced me to this American website, Nasty Gal and I’ve been grateful ever since. Hours can easily be spent browsing their gorgeous items and I almost always want everything on it. I like to think of it as a Topshop meets Urban Outfitters so it’s the perfect place for me to find something I’m convinced I can’t live without.
The best thing I’ve ever bought from Nasty Gal has been my trusty Jeffrey Campbell Lita boots. I decided to go for the floral tapestry version and two years later they’re still my favourite shoes ever. They’re so comfortable and well worth the $120 dollars I spent on them.
If ordering outside the US you will have to be a little patient. I have been made to wait quite a while as items are accidentally sent to Australia instead of the UK, but it’s always worth the wait and we can’t blame Nasty Gal for that, just the awful postal services in this world. Also, you should expect extra customs charges once the items arrive, although I’ve only ever experienced this with footwear but I have known people to order a dress and be smacked with an extra £15 to pay once their order arrives.
The picture above is my current wish list and I hope to God someone sees this and buys me all of them (HINT HINT). At the moment they have free international shipping on all orders over $150, and seen as its quite expensive this might only take one item but if you’re looking at the bargains it would well be worth it to bulk buy now and save on the expensive extra charges!
Oh and another tip, whatever you do, do not mix gal up with girl. Those images are forever burned in my memory.
