The blog for books and movies

The first thing Sophia Amoruso sold online wasn’t fashion—it was a stolen book. She spent her teens hitchhiking, committing petty theft, and dumpster diving. By twenty-two, she had resigned herself to employment, but was still broke, directionless, and working a mediocre day job she’d taken for the health insurance.

It was there that Sophia decided to start selling vintage clothes on eBay. Eight years later, she is the founder, CEO, and creative director of Nasty Gal, a $100 million plus online fashion retailer with more than 350 employees. Sophia’s never been a typical CEO, or a typical anything, and she’s written #GIRLBOSS for outsiders (and insiders) seeking a unique path to success, even when that path is winding as all hell and lined with naysayers.

  1. #GIRLBOSS is an inspirational book, it provides us with ideas and the background of starting up a business. Sophia Amoruso, founder and CEO of a fashion company, Nastygal.com. In this book she shares how she got to where she is now and goes into great detail of how she got there. She teaches us to hustle on and keep persisting. I would recommend this book to people 15 and older. I love this book so much and is one of the ones that I would read over and over again. #GIRLBOSS is truly inspiring and is perfect for girls who are into fashion or just looking for the motivation to do something with there life.

  2. I’m recommending a book written the founder and CEO of a multi-million dollar fashion company, Nastygal.com, Sophia Amoruso called #GIRLBOSS. This book is so amazing! I had no idea what I was really expecting when I first picked it up after it bing recommended to me but I was captivated but the way she writes. Sophia used to be a thief but ending selling her first book online which then lead to her selling vintage clothing on an eBay shop. It tells of her story and how she went from “rags to riches.” The book is written quite sarcastically and she adds in her own opinions on the world, some of them being quite refreshing to her. The book is fabulous if you are in need to a motivational hit or want to read something “inspiring” and truly heartwarming. I hope Sophia Amoruso writes more books in the near future! I would recommend #GIRLBOSS to my family, friends and everyone fashion nut like me in the whole world! Yes, I love it that much!!
