Nasty Gal


 How old are you?

I am 17 years old.

Where are you from?She's Nous: Alyena

Born and raised in Agoura Hills, CA.

Have you ever broken a bone?

I have always been super clumsy, and my friends have always said how I am like a giraffe on roller skates! Luckily I have actually never broken a bone though!

 What food will you absolutely not, under any circumstances, eat?

Pickles! It is weird because I love cucumbers and am not a picky eater at all. I am a huge foodie, but something about pickles just makes me go ughhhh…

When you eat a pack of Skittles, do you save the best flavors for last? Or do they go first?

I always save the best for last because in my mind I want to finish with the best flavor possible!

Who was your embarrassing 2000s celeb crush?

I would have to go with Robert Pattinson. I went through a huge faze of loving the Twilight books and movies, I was pretty obsessed.

If you had to choose one thing you were most passionate about, what would it be and why?

I try to live my life being passionate about everything I do! I believe that the best way to live your life is to love what you are doing with it. Animals I am especially passionate about. Currently I am volunteer every week at the shelter and one day hope to work as an animal rights activist.

Have you overcome one of your fears?

I have always been really shy and I’ve been afraid of public situations and encounters. It’s not something I have completely overcome, but I would say it’s been a work in progress but the finish line is in sight.

She's Nous: Alyena

Which superpower would you want?

I have always been obsessed with reading books about history and the past as well as what people think the future will hold, so I would love to have the power of time travel!!

What inspires you the most?

Passionate people really inspire me because I have always loved seeing people that are dedicated to achieving a goal. It also amps me up and makes me more determined to achieve my own dreams.

Can you hula hoop?

It’s possible and I’m not to shabby at it, but I would definitely say that it is a skill I’m not eager to show off!

What’s under your bed?

Lots and lots of bags going from simple handbags to suitcases.

How old are you?


Where are you from?

San Francisco, CA

Do you have a nickname?

I get called Joss or Jossy.

What’s your favorite color?

Usually it’s purple but lately I’ve been loving a lot of blue/greens.

How about a lucky number?

The number 5 has always stuck out to me for some reason. My favorite and lucky number!

The classic: You’re stuck on an island and can only have one thing with you. What is it?

I’d bring Beyoncé. Queen B always knows what to do, and she can serenade me while I sleep. Plus she’s a “survivor” so she can do it all.


What’s playing on your iTunes right now?

I’ve currently been obsessed with Sam Smith. His voice is amazingggg!

What brand has some of your favorite ad campaigns of all time?

A lot of the surfer/skate brands has the coolest ads, like Billabong, RVCA, and Roxy. But I also really love Nasty Gal and LF ads, they’re so edgy and fun!

Your best kept beauty secret?

My face tends to get super dry at night so I always use a little Bio Oil around my eyes and dry spots before going to bed. It’s very light and doesn’t clog your pores!

What’s the most random thing to have happened to you on set before?

One time I was laughing and didn’t notice how weird it was and everyone was getting out their phones trying to record my laugh. They said they’d save it for a day they need cheering up! I guess it’s a contagious one!

Picture this: You arrive at your coveted Valentine’s Day destination looking dressed to impress. After hours of glam – including an incident with the curling iron that you’re thankful no one witnessed – you’re feeling 100% on top of the world and ready to conquer the night. Your date has all eyes on you… until he notices a similar red dress clone out of the corner of his eye.

“Hey, isn’t she wearing the same thing as you?”

Your cheeks immediately turn the shade of your M.A.C. ‘Viva Glam’ red lipstick as all your self confidence melts into the bowl of french onion soup in front of you. It’s not even the main course yet and your Valentine’s vibe has already been killed for the night (insert broken-hearted emoji here).

But fear not: V Day 2015 can have a happy ending. We’ve got the solution to keeping this year’s most romantic night a smashing hit all the way through until your chocolate-covered dessert. The secret? Go vintage!

While some might think this translates into hours of searching through thrift store bins in search of a vintage gem, think again. This year, Nasty Gal has done the hard work for us and put together some seriously cool vintage options – all romantic, elegant and most important of all, unique.

No matter what your plans, we’ve created three V-Day scenarios modeled by the gorgeous Sydney Schafer who showed how to knock ‘em dead for each. You have the final say on the look of the evening, but rest assured that these options will leave you the standout star of the night. Xoxo.


School or Work

It’s always fun to dress in theme, and why not adopt the go big or go home mentality for the one day of the year when it’s acceptable to wear anything pink, red and all things glittery. Try these Vintage Escada Rima Pleated Trousers on for size to add a sizzling pop of red into your daytime look. We also love the Vintage Lagerfeld Vintage Wool Blazer or this Vintage One to Grow on Pencil Skirt for a polished and professional option. To keep things more playful and fun, the Vintage Saint Laurent Lovers’ Swirl Embroidered Top is a fan of ours (and Cupid’s).



Since we brought up Cupid, we’re here to say that you don’t need a date to have fun on Valentine’s Day. It is a #GIRLBOSS world afterall. So save the Ben & Jerry’s + Netflix binge for another night, and throw on one of these dazzling dresses to dance the night away. But to do so, you’ll want this Vintage DKNY Future’s So Bright Racer Back Dress in your closet. For the rock and roll girls, the Vintage Sugar High Leather Dress was made for you. And for those of you who prefer the classic red look, the Vintage Herve Leger Violet Femme Bandage Dress is your go-to, and may even attract the attention of a new romance in your life. Don’t say we didn’t warn you.


Date Night

If you are lucky enough to score a handsome suitor for the evening, arrive in something like this Vintage Paco Rabanne Lady in Red Velvet Dress and your date won’t even need buy you a bouquet of roses (we’ll still expect them, though. Just saying.) With this dress, it’s all in the name: you will be his lady of the evening. And for the hopeless romantics, it doesn’t get much better than the Vintage All Heart Lattice Dress and Vintage Comme de Garcons Tragically Lip Cutout Top, both of which will leave your date’s eyes on you and you alone long past the main course.
