KEEPING IT SEXY FOR VALENTINE’S

The Skinny Confidential talks Valentine's Day.

The Skinny Confidential talks Valentine's Day.

I don’t know about you, but I think Valentine’s Day is fun whether you’re single & flirty or taken & sexy.

Either way it’s the kinda holiday to wear bright pink lipstick, a sassy dress, & a high ponytail.

So duh, I’m in.

These are some of my staples for V-day. All of these cuties are already in my closet/cupboard so I don’t have to spend a dime ( << Michael? You got that covered, right babe? Can’t wait what to see what you have in store!!! ** blushing Emoji x 10 ** (( LOL sending him a gentle reminder! )) ).

Ok, let’s get all lovey-dovey:

♡ number 1: sassy heart bra ( don’t spend 4 million dollars on over-priced bras until you check out Forever 21’s selection. They always get it right ).

♡ number 2: cutie, delicious tea ( looking for a V-day cocktail? I got ya covered. Just check this baby out. These tins are only avail at Target in-store though! ).

♡ number 3: sex kitten red skirt ( everyone needs a skirt like this to whip during any festive holiday. I like this one because it’s priced right & a total staple ).

♡ number 4: floral flats ( I DIED WHEN I FOUND THESE ONLINE. They’re under $25 bucks & soooo damn chic. Perf to celebrate the day of lovaaaaas ).

♡ number 5: hottie red lips ( I just talked about my obsession with Urban Decay’s ‘Bang’ lipstick in my latest YouTube tutorial. It’s no surprise this is one of my favorite colors for a steamy date night.

♡ number 6: little white dress ( it’s all about the little white dress lately. This one hugs my curves in all the right spots. Plus it looks cute from day to night ).

♡ number 7: v-day daytime sweater ( it’s sad how obsessed I am with this sweater!! I DIE FOR IT! Cute, right? ).

♡ number 8: strappy nude heels ( instead of spending 3502598 dollars on high end shoes, check these nudie Steve Maddens out & thank me later. RAWR!

 ♡ number 9: dainty gold rings ( if you know me you know I HEART my dainty gold rings. These are the ones I’ll be rocking for Valentine’s.

What’s your favorite Valentine’s Day staple? I don’t care if you’re single, taken, married, etc. SPILL! Send me any links you guys like…I kinda wanna get my shop on tonight ( or send multiple links to Michael because IT’S VALENTINE’S DAYYYYYYY! ).

TSC Gift Guide: Under $50…Cha-Ching!

The Skinny Confidential talks sales.

1 || 2 || 3 || 4 || 5 || 6 || 7 || 8

Are you feeling the theme this week on TSC?

Clearly it’s HOLIDAY SALES. Honestly I figured this year I wouldn’t wait until 5 pm on Christmas Eve to do all my holiday shopping ( true story, year after year ).

Anyway this year it’s all about planning ahead ( HA! FOR ONCE! ) & I’m showcasing every step of the way with you guys. Did I mention that I’m going to be finding items that don’t break the bank?

Because I am— & they’re all cool as shit too.

SOOOO totally not going to be recommending for you guys to buy a $420 dollar clutch for your sister. Instead all TSC gift guides will be affordable, chic items that every family member will love!

Is anyone stuck on what to buy someone specific? AKA grandma, boyfriend, dog, etc.? Let me know & I’ll try to do a collage that fits with your needs!

Ok, I’m going to listen to Christmas jazz on repeat ( Pandora !! ) & drink pumpkin pie coffee & light gingerbread candles & just be all holiday-ish. See ya!

P.S. real talk: I bought the red lace dress for myself because it’s looks EXACTLY like the $300 Nightcap one BUT it’s $34 dollars. So, how could I not, not buy it?

Behind The Scenes Of Nasty Gal’s Headquarters

Nasty Gal x The Skinny Confidential.

Nasty Gal x The Skinny Confidential.

Obviously the creator of the Nasty Gal empire, Sophia Amoruso, is a HUGE inspiration to woman entrepreneurs everywhere.

Not only has she created a badass brand, but also a full blown MOVEMENT with her online shopping platform, book, clothing line, & now LA storefront ( I wrote more about how she’s inspired me here ).

So when Nasty Gal invited me to come tour their headquarters?? I was soooo, like so, so excited. When I arrived at NG I met with Devan & Krista, who took me on the most insane tour.

And, uh basically the office rocks.

NBD, it has an in-house design team, rad decor, a yoga room, & so many amazing clothes/shoes. Any office with a fitness studio is insane in my book. Plus they allow dogs at work.

Uhhhhh-mazing.

After Devan & Krista shared their workspace, I knew I HAD TO SHARE IT WITH YOU GUYS, so here ya go— meet Devan Pucci who does Nasty Gal’s public relations:

|| Ok, so after having a tour of NG HQ, I’m smitten. Tell us all about working at one of the fastest growing companies in the US. ||

Devan Pucci, Nasty Gal PR: It’s a blast because so many inspiring projects are always in the works. We recently moved into our beautiful new offices that span about 50,000 square feet & we’re now located in the heart of downtown Los Angeles. From Nasty Gal’s physical growth to our online product expansion, it’s clear that there’s a lot to look forward to over the next few years & beyond!

|| Benefits of working at NG? ||

DP: Working at Nasty Gal is awesome. The dress code, as you may imagine, is very Nasty Gal and allows employees to express their own unique style. It makes getting ready for work fun! Dogs are allowed; you’ll see them all over the offices and hiding under couches. We have fun get togethers for the staff, which include Beer & Wine Friday’s, trivia games ( with prizes, of course ), in-office manicures, & chair massages. Recently we’ve been watching the World Cup together over some beers.

|| Can you expand on how your CEO & Founder, Sophia Amoruso has evolved over the past couple years? ||

DP: She’s gone from dumpster diving to CEO of the coolest company in the world andddd wrote a book called #GIRLBOSS which landed her on the New York Times bestseller list! Hard work pays off:

|| Describe a day in the life at NG? ||

DP: Working in PR means I am constantly communicating &executing. I spend my days supporting the team. Whether it’s running around the office prepping for photo shoots, steaming clothes for celebrity fittings, tracking press clips, drafting pitches, or checking in and facilitating sample requests for editors and stylists, no day is ever the same— or mundane!

There’s a strong sense of energy here with people coming from so many different places and backgrounds that they all bring something unique to the table. I love having meetings with my co-workers because their ideas are always so inspiring and they challenge me to do better!

|| Favorite healthy snacks to bring to the office? ||

DP: Coconut water + chia seeds, fruit, raw almonds, carrots, hard-boiled eggs, &/or whole-wheat flaxseed crackers.

The Skinny Confidential talks diet and fitness.

|| Tell us about the yoga room at NG ( I mean!!! ) ||

DP: Our office has a fully functioning fitness room with beautiful hardwood floors and floor-to-ceiling mirrors. It’s the perfect place to unwind and relax after a day of work. Yoga, Pop Physique, Hip-Hop, and other fitness classes are available throughout the week and are free to employees! It is kickass because it is so conveniently located & gives everyone the ability to work on their fitness and health.

|| Favorite holiday Nasty Gal looks? ||

DP: I’m loving these for the holidays:

1.} No words needed. Score the best vintage Chanel right now on Nasty Gal.

2.} The perfect pop of color while staying glamorous and warm this winter.

3.} A go to holiday party skirt, throw on a black crop top and platforms and you’re ready to party.

4.} Wear this gold top with black leather jeans for a sexy dinner look.

5.} This leather jacket actually feels like butter.

|| Talk to me about why NG is so successful? ||

DP: Nasty Gal is so successful because it is more than just an online shopping site—it’s style, culture, & attitude all wrapped into one. It’s rare that people can say they both love wearing and working for a brand. We’re authentic and our customers trust us— the Nasty Gal’s are our ride or die’s.

TSC Series: The Best Damn…White Maxi

The Skinny Confidential talk fashion.

The Skinny Confidential x fashion.

Want the truth?

The whole truth & nothing but the truth?

Ok, then—well.

For this post: I didn’t wear makeup ( I was running out the door like a psycho & didn’t have time ) and the dress is unavailable ( but I found a better one for you ).

MMMmmmkay, now that that’s out of the way, here we go:

The Skinny Confidential talk fashion.

Let’s discuss: the.best.damn.white.maxi.dress.

Muy importante to have a white, hottie dress that’s sizzling.

& this one’s it.

It’s very 2014 Marilyn Monroe-esque, right?!

The Skinny Confidential talk fashion.

It’s the kinda dress you secretly hopes blows in the wind all supermodel-ish when you wear it, you know?

This white dime also happens to be on sale ( $23 dollars?! )— such a steal!

Oh, & can you guys tell I like black & white? HA!

Happy hump day! x.

{ Again, this isn’t sponsored post; I just really love the dress }

1.} Floppy hat: I’m all about hats lately. This black one would go with just about anything.

2.} Tortoise shell sunnies: these are cute & inexpensive. Plus they’re slightly cat eyed, which I love.

3.} White sandals: if you’re doing the whole BBQ thing on Labor Day, sandals are a must. These Sam Edelman’s are super cute.

4.} Cate McNabb lip gloss: ahhh. I am OBSESSED with their lip glosses. They last for hours & they come in the cutest colors. I’m all about a little pop of color for holidays so this peachy red would work really well with just about anything. I’m especially in love with Cate McNabb’s products because they use shea butter & jojoba oil in their ingreds.

5.} Lotion: don’t be flaky. Flaky skin is never in— make sure your legs are moisturized…ESP if you’re wearing shorts or a lil bikini.

6.} Hottie bikini: this bikini makes the girls look fab. It has a little extra oomph…if ya know what I mean. A little padding never hurt a flea. Plus these colors are cute & fun for summer. The black bottoms are found here.

7.} Lil cover-up: if you’re rocking a bikini, grab a cover-up. They’re easy to throw in an oversized handbag & perfect to throw on later in the day.

8.} SPF 30: duh. Just duh. You guys already know my opinion on sunscreen…so lather up!

9.} Cutie oxfords: seriously though, oxfords are everything. I wear them ALL the time. They’re so cute & sexy in an understated kinda way ; ).

Happy Labor Day baes!

Oh, & FML…of course Labor Day means amazing sales at the best online shops…so naturally I’m sharing my wish list ( my favorite sale item though is def this dress ( << 20% off! ) I wore here ):
