You Nasty, Girl

Though she's famous for selling vintage Chanel, a stolen book was actually the first item that Sophia Amoruso ever sold on her eBay shop. DTLA neighbor and Standard friend, she's now Founder and CEO of Nasty Gal, a popular online vintage destination. Everything Sophia touches has an air of cool, including her new book, #GIRLBOSS, which recounts the story of her first sale and her rise to retail stardom.

Half memoir, half practical advice, #GIRLBOSS is peppered with anarchist quotes, profiles of other #girlBosses, inspiring drawings, and gem after gem of kick ass pearls of wisdom. The writing is witty and affable, like listening to a good friend tell you a story. And the advice runs the gamut, from writing a good cover letter, to owning your own style, to getting fired gracefully. #GIRLBOSS is an essential read for everyone who has realized that the path to happiness isn't always a straight line.

#GIRLBOSS just went on sale May 6 and is available wherever books are sold. Nasty Gal continues to be one of our favorite sources for that I-Just-Stole-Your-Boyfriend look and their blog is always an inspiration, make sure to check both on the regular.
