NastyGal Sued for Employee Discrimination

NastyGal, the trendy online retailer, has been sued by a former employee who is claiming that she was wrongfully terminated by the retailer for being pregnant.

In her complaint, Aimee Concepcion explains how she was recruited by NastyGal in late 2013 for the position of Buyer for the newly created Home Goods department within the company. During her interviews, Concepcion was told by the executives that her position is a “stable position.” Concepcion claims that during her time at the retailer, she receive “stellar performance review[s]” regarding her work and contributions to the company.

 Around February of 2014, Concepcion found out she was pregnant and in April of that year, she informed her supervisors and asked for information on what maternity leave, and maternity benefits she was entitled to.

In her complaint, Concepcion alleges that her supervisors failed to inform her of all the rights and benefits she was entitled to under California law, and was told she was only entitled to 6-8 weeks of leave after she gives birth. Concepcion then became increasingly worried and upset about the lack of support she was receiving from her employers, but assumed that they were advising her properly on what her rights were.

Currently Coveting: Pencil Me In

I’m heading up to LA this weekend for my friend’s bachelorette festivities!! I’m so excited to go back to my old stomping grounds in West Hollywood and stir up a little trouble with my closest friends! To mark the occasion, I decided to finally wear this AMAZING ASTR pencil skirt that I have but have never worn because I just couldn’t seem to find the right top for it. I was on the hunt this week for the perfect top and was inspired by the current trend of a crop top paired with a pencil skirt. I love this look because it creates a going out look that is sexy but not overtly out there, in other words it’s juuuust right!

Here are some pieces that I used as inspiration during my week-long search for the perfect crop top to pair with my skirt. I am so excited to have fun this weekend and also to rock this look!!

Happy Persian New Year!! Also known as the First Day of Spring!! This is a big holiday in the Persian culture, and to celebrate a new year, we always wear something new and pretty while gathering with family. Growing up, my mom would always buy us an outfit that was bright and sunny to represent the coming of spring and that has always been my inspiration every year when choosing an outfit for our Persian New Year festivities! This year, I am loving the pastels trend happening right now. It’s so light and fresh and perfect for Persian New Year. Check out some of the looks that are inspiring my outfit for tonight’s party and stay tuned for my Persian New Year Stylegram!persian new year

Currently Coveting: Capes

Capes are having a moment. And, I love it!! I bought a grey cape (which you’ll probably see in a Stylegram soon) a couple years ago and I have always loved wearing it because I feel like a cape gives me that touch of European elegance and kind of elevates any outfit to another level. The best part of this cape trend is that its not only jackets and sweaters, but you have cape blazers, tops, and dresses. After all, Gwyneth Paltrow and Lupita Nyong’o both rocked the red carpets with gorgeous cape dresses in the past couple years!

Here are some of my favorite cape pieces that I am currently coveting!
