Afterparty! Where? At mine, duh. Everyone knows it’s the after party where it’s at. Club closes. Nobody wants to go home. The night is still young – yolo, etc etc. You find the person who’s most willing to let their house get a little roughed-up and pile on back in the taxi for a post-session. University felt like one big afterparty (if you are about to start uni – oh my god, I am so jealous. You are about to embark on the best three years of your life where you will still be telling the tales several years later). I lived in a huge house with 9 girls just a stones throw away from town, so it became a centralised hub for the best kinds of fun. Someone who we had never even knowingly met wrote a Facebook status about how great our house parties were. And people we just knew from being out would just randomly show up at ours at 2-4am expecting there to be a party because it was such a regular occurrence.
those. were. the. days.
I could honestly go on and tell you all of the house party stories for years (shout out to the Australian Rugby team’s special appearance and my friends boyfriend pulling the radiator off the wall) but this time, I’m talking a different kind of after party – Nasty Gal’s new capsule range, so aptly named After Party Vintage. It’s a limited edition collection of rare vintage finds that you won’t awkwardly bump into someone else in the queue for the toilet wearing. The pieces in the collection are reimagined, reworked and reinterpreted in Los Angeles and totally one of a kind (and coincidentally has that kind of LA party vibe to make the perfect entrance at an after-session)
Oh, and Nasty Gal? In the UK? Yes! If you didn’t know, its been relaunched as a UK brand with easy peasy prices, no custom fees (as it ships from the UK) and basically always a discount code on the go. I’ve done a Nasty Gal haul with pieces I went overboard on because there was a 40% off code – how can you say no to that? (Perfect student-friendly budgets!)
Here’s some of my top picks from thew new in section!
