Sophia Amoruso walked right by me while I was waiting in line so I asked her for a photo and she very kindly obliged. I was starstruck. I had to hang up on a friend and she ended up handing me a discount card because she thought that was hilarious.
I was thinking the Nasty Gal boutique would be a middle ground in between a TOPSHOP and an Intermix in terms of quantity of merchandise and layout of the store. I wasn’t disappointed! She did a fabulous job of hand picking pieces off of the website (Nasty Gal collection, that tower of shoes, vintage Chanel and more) for the boutique. I waited about an hour to get in, but it was so worth it. There were these cool, little photo booths set up around the store, cotton candy, coffee, etc. The staff was doing a great job considering they were being bombarded with so much chaos all day. Apparently, one of the staff members was an ex-America’s Next Top Model candidate! We chatted about all the drama and how the girls started fights over closet space (lol). Anyway, I have a friend who works at the boutique and their team has been working tirelessly to get this all together. After test driving this location, Amoruso hopes to open more stores around the country. What holds me back about shopping online at Nasty Gal is the sizing. Each brand on the website does their sizing differently so it’s really a hit or miss. I’ll continue shopping online of course, but now I’m just a short drive away just in case I have to return/exchange something which is a great convenience.
