about a #girlboss


As part of the newly renovated Velvet + Vinyl, we are introducing a new segment that highlights books worth reading. For the first of many books to come, I wanted to touch on the book that inspired the start of V+V.

In all honestly, I’m not the most inclined reader, but #Girlboss by Sophia Amoruso, the founder and former CEO of Nasty Gal, was one of the few books I simply could not put down. Amoruso has such a unique story that is easy to relate to and she shares an admirable approach to making dreams come true. The book altogether was incredibly inspiring and offered sage advice for strong, determined, passionate women.

Below I’ve included a few of my favorite lines and a few of my own sketches featuring quotes from Amoruso’s book:

  • Create your own opportunities

Get it, ladies. The world needs more girlbosses!
