Anonymous asked: Hi Jeni! What are your thoughts on the quality of Nasty Gal clothing? I've heard mixed reviews--I can't decide if I want to take the leap and purchase something!
so the thing about nasty gal is that they source a lot of their product from an area that we’ll refer to as ‘the marketplace’ aka these areas in NY and LA that contain a ton of wholesale ‘boutiques’ that make fast, inexpensive, trendy clothing. the product from most of these locations are mostly polyester blends, and in order to hit such low costs (which are then marked up quite a bit before you purchase anything), the quality of this product suffers.
you should be fine buying branded product from Nasty Gal (i.e. anything that says the brand name in the title like: UNIF Hangover Shorts, or Cameo Stepping Stones Blazer), but the product that says Nasty Gal, tends to be a lower quality, which is how they’re able to offer such competitive prices on that product. The same goes for the MKL Collective brand that’s offered on Karmaloop, or a better example would be Forever 21 except on a larger scale, which is why they can hit those crazy low prices, but as you probably know, the garments basically fall apart after you wear them a few times.
Nasty Gal brand is great for trendy, affordable clothing. So if you’re looking for a specific trend that you will wear a few times, but maybe not carry over in your wardrobe in a few seasons, you’ll be fine. But for staple classics for your wardrobe that you would like to wear forever, I would stick to branded labels (they tend to put a little more into their products, making pricing higher, but making their things last longer).
hope this is helpful and not super confusing! let me know if you have any questions and i’ll try to clarify any points that may be hard to understand or that i may have missed.
