Book of the Month: Nasty Galaxy By Sophia Amoruso

Tuesday, January 3, 2017


From the creator of Nasty Gal and the #girlboss book, we have Nasty Galaxy. Let me just start by saying that we LOVE Sophia Amoruso! Read #girlboss for her version of how Nasty Gal came to be and our previous post on that book here. We think her attitude and message comes across loud and clear: work your ass off and the sky is the limit. Naturally when we saw the new hardcover book on Nasty Gal design, it was a must have!

When the news broke that Nasty Gal was filing for bankruptcy, it was disappointing. But not for the reason you might guess. We weren't disappointed in Amoruso, we were disappointed in all the people that will judge this #girlboss for appearing to fail. Unfortunately, because she was such an advocate for being a #girlboss and trying to share her success and what advice she might have - the world was watching and waiting for something just like this. But we say "forget those people!" With the speed and lack of experience this woman accelerated her Myspace page into million dollar business, she has still done something amazing. And we sure as hell haven't seen the last of her or her successes.

"Think like a Queen. A Queen is not afraid to fail. Failure is another steppingstone to greatness."
Oprah Winfrey


  1. I totally agree with your ending comments. I've yet to read #girlboss, but its on my to read list for this year and I totally love and admire Sophia Amaruso and follow her podcast with the same name every morning when I go for my run. Its so inspiring :)

  2. First, thank you for reading! Second, she has a podcast? I will definitely have to check it out! I agree with finding her inspirational! #girlboss #girlpower

  3. You know, I know a business man who filed for bankruptcy a few times and now he's the President. That's not to say he's one to aspire too, but come on if he can do that this #girlboss can do anything! I can't wait to read her comeback story :)
