[dropcap]I[/dropcap] don’t typically follow trends but I got a particular inbox message from a site that I follow about a fashion collaboration that involved Courtney Love. I’ll be the first to admit that I’m more a fan of Love’s late husband Kurt Cobain than I was her. (Especially with the coming of documentaries like Montage of Heck.) The one thing I always loved about Courtney however was her unique and eclectic style. I didn’t want to just jump straight into buying everything specifically from Courtney’s collaboration; I wanted to check out the clothing company first… Guess what.. I loved it.
Note: I was not paid or given any form of compensation to write this post! For the love of fan girl, I bring you..
Fan Girl Friday: Nasty Gal
[dropcap]N[/dropcap]asty Gal is having a 30% sale right now and that got me hype. I wanted to get something under $50 to see how it fit and how I was gonna love everything before I transitioned into the possibility of getting into the Courtney Love collaboration line. Let me tell you, what I immediately loved about Nasty Gal before I even made my purchase!
The CEO of Nasty Gal is Sophia Amoruso!
As in the Sophia Amoruso, author of #GirlBoss. This book is every young entrepreneur woman’s mantra right now. I quote it all the time. It’s amazing and so I was already motivated to fall in love with this clothing company because it’s owned by a GIRL BOSS! Can you believe she started Nasty Gal on EBAY?! It’s motivating.

“Who needs boys when you’ve got bank?”
I’m going through this awesome phase of life where I am loving my single self. I’m in love with being able to take care of myself and be financially stable. The greatest part of looking at Nasty Gal website is that they were openly saying “Hey, you. Girl over there! Continue to love yourself!”
Shopping on Nasty Gall!
XXS?! No way.
The website is awesome. The reviews on all the items really motivated me to buy it but what was the most great was the fact that they had xxs listed as a size. Hello! That’s me! Being 4’11 and 90lbs, it’s always awkward being at family events because everyone calls me “anorexic” and worries about my size. I can assure you, that I eat all the time. There’s not really a place to feel “safe” being a smaller woman. Nasty Gal actually took that fear away for me. It started its size listings at xxs which made me comfortable ordering something that I felt would be “flattering”.
30% off turned my $50 order into a $33 order.
So I bought two shirts. I was super excited for it. I get to check out, and the 30% coupon immediately applied! The two shirts I bought were already sale items [items that I can’t even believe were so cheap] and wham! My order came down by $20.
The shipping was only $5.
When a site says free shipping off of items $75 or more, I picture myself paying my arm, leg, and two pineapples for shipping. Seeing that my order really only had five dollars of shipping made me really excited and a bit emotional.
How soon will my item arrive?
It was crazy! So, I ordered my item on Friday. FRIDAY, okay? It arrived that Monday. I was so excited when I got the package that I tore it open, ripped it out and immediately threw it on. Fit like a glove. A really cute, adorable, and sexy glove.
I included a few items that you guys might like below.
