MIAMI VICE, Y2K PASTELS, 80’s POWERSUITS: EVERYTHING I WANT FROM THE EMRATA x NASTY GAL COLLECTION

essellesse talks nasty gal x emrata collection • lazy luxury

I have always really liked Emily Ratajkowski aka @emrata ever since 2013

Not only is she drop dead gorgeous, but I have always really loved her style {she’s someone I find a lot of inspo from} & how outspoken she is.

She recently collaborated with Nasty Gal on the EMRATA X NASTY GAL collection and it’s one I really, really love. In fact, if you love the 80s, 90s, & 2000s references as much as I do, you will love it too!

Her style is bold, unapologetic with hints of vintage thrown in.

Here is a great interview with Emily about her collection, her inspiration, & of course empowering other women.

I’m currently on a shopping ban so I can’t buy anything yet but any of the items I find I can’t stop thinking of, I’ll treat myself to.

In fact, this is how I shop on depop – I NEVER buy immediately {unless it’s one of these dior shirts which actually has shopping ban permission since they are hard to find}. Basically, I go ahead & like the item. If it sells out then too bad for me. If I can’t stop thinking of it and know how to apply it to my own closet, then I press purchase.

SO: currently on my radar is this collaboration & here are all the pieces I want.

ps – the pieces may seem pricey but nasty gal is always having sales and they apply to this collection too! {currently everything is 50% off}

EVERYTHING I WANT FROM THE NASTY GAL X EMRATA COLLECTION

EMRATA Business As Usual Oversized Double Breasted Blazer – $100

EMRATA Business As Usual Wide-Leg Belted Pants – $80

The second I saw this co-ord, it went #1 on my list. I love everything about it, especially the oversized fit. I also love how it looks with nothing on underneath but would also style it with my oversized button downs or a crop top {I ONLY like crop tops on me if it’s with a high-waist pant & even better w a blazer}. This gives me total 80s Wall Street powersuit vibes & I love the sheen to the fabric. It comes in a soft blush & tan but the tan is the one that’s calling out to me .

EMRATA We’re Finished Satin Wide-Leg Pants – $80

Another 80s inspired powersuit that dropped my jaw. The first thing I thought of was Miami Vice which I am alllll about. I love that it’s white satin & would be so fun to pair with pastels. I’d even wear the blazer to the beach with a pastel swimsuit underneath. It also has a metallic sheen which I love.

EMRATA Touch My Body Satin Cami Top – $50

this cami just screams 90s! In fact, it’s perfectly named because I got instant 90s/00s pop star vibes from it… especially Mariah Carey! I love the pastel lavender {would be so chic with the suit above} & am a sucker for a cowl neck satin cami

EMRATA Get Your Sleek On Satin Bias Cut Skirt – $60

A bias cut satin skirt has been on my wishlist for quite a while but I haven’t found the right one but this one looks perfect. I also love that it matches the above top perfectly for a perfect co-ord look. It also comes in mint green but the cami above only comes in lavender.

EMRATA Lookin’ Like a Vision Linen Wide-Leg Pants – $80

Linen pants are my JAM. I love summertime because it’s time to break out the white linens. If I had to describe my perfect pair of pants, it would be: high-waisted, thick elastic waist, wide leg, linen & preferably white…. & these check all of those boxes. I’d 100% wear these with my favourite vintage dior chemises.

check out the entire emrata x nasty gal collection!

I know I shop predominantly vintage but anything from this era that does catch my eye & I know will last my taste throughout the years, I do put on my list to buy. After all, the 2000s weren’t too long ago {& I still rewear a lot of things from that era, like my low-rise true religions} & we will be thinking the same about our current decade years down the line.

If you see my capsule wardrobe spreadsheet, I included the years I purchased things so even if it’s something I purchased new, it’s something I won’t part with year after year.

Anything you’re loving from the collection? Let me know!

  • happy Sunday 💙 just caught up on big little lies and I have soooo many theories 🌊 #momentswithsunday #biglittlelies #hbo
  • one of my fav things about aromatherapy is how different scents appeal to you depending on how you’re feeling. Eucalyptus smelling particularly good right now? it well help bring the clarity you’re craving . Chamomile for tonight? this will make it easier to decompress & relax. 🧖🏻‍♀️ I love the aromatherapy from @aeraforhome - I use the oils on my wrists & in the bath as well as with their seriously smart diffuser for home. It brings a nice luxe hotel vibe & can always set the mood. The diffuser is sleek, chic, & smart: you can connect it to wifi & Alexa to control and adjust! All of Aera’s scents are hypoallergenic, non toxic, cleans, & completely pet safe. Swipe through to see it the diffuser in action + a suuuper satisfying video 💆🏻‍♀️🔮 i have a full review on the smart diffuser {& why it’s so smart} and the aromatherapy oils on www.essellesse.com • link in bio ⚜️#aromaistherapy #aera #aeraforhome #ad
