We booked tickets to New York the minute Nasty Gal announced that they were hosting a big bash there to toast the debut issue of their shiny new magazine, Super Nasty. After all, the super successful e-tailer turned game-changer is one of our prized hometown heroes, so we had to represent. (We also secretly wanted to see how NG parties down on the East Coast, given that their West Coast bashes are crazy-fun.)
Last Friday's festivities were held at mega popular club The Westway and featured music by Blood Orange, a projection of the 1969 film Easy Rider, a neon light-up dance floor, a boob disco ball (essential), flowing drinks and, of course, supremely stylish partygoers. The guest list featured everyone from rapper Theophilus London to The Zoe Report team, who officially deemed the event "ah-maze." There you have it.
