Founded in 2006 by San Franciscan Sophia Amoruso, Nasty Gal Vintage started when Amoruso started selling distinct vintage items on eBay. Part fashionista and part apparel curator, Amoruso was able to launch from eBay into a global vintage style destination. Today, Nasty Gal offers vintage and modern clothing as well as accessories and shoes.
According to the Nasty Gal website, style is about mood and mixing separates to express on the outside what the fashionable gal feels on the inside. Ladies flock to the site to gaze at all of the virtual options. It is all about being an original. Prices range to make pieces available for every budget, but merchandise is carefully selected and one-of–a-kind.
What is remarkable about Nasty Gal is that Amoruso created her brand from of her own instinct. She is driven by a passion for fashion and a keen sense of knowing where to find fashion treasures. Amoruso started the online venture at home and it grew once the bids started pouring him. The site keeps the edge up by staying tuned in to fashion and connected to other style lovers in the zeitgeist of trends. We love it, and hopefully now will you!
