That Amoruso started out with exactly $50 in the bank, amazes me and has stuck with me. I have more than $50 in my personal funds, don’t steal high-end clothing, and am not eating bagels out of dumpsters, yet I haven’t done anything as amazing as founding a business- even a small one!
Overall, Amoruso penned a witty autobiography with amusing pictures of her from her younger days, which I wholeheartedly recommend to anyone and everyone. (Excluding the male population, of course.)
What I disliked about this book was about Amoruso made a big deal about she was impoverished in her younger years. If you've ever ordered something from Nasty Gal- their prices can climb pretty high. And if any of you have seen the now infamous pom-pom dress- well, it's a nasty shock to your eyes, and ironic to me. Why? Because in her book Amoruso states that she only bought clothes that it seemed like the young female employees at Nasty Gal woukd wear. I'm not sure about you, but I don't see many people wearing expensive pom-poms glued to cling wrap. Unless it's, y'know, a new fashion thing that will eventually become a world wide trend... NOT.
But I sincerely do urge you to do pick up this book and read it, even if #GIRLBOSS is a rather quirky title. I would love to read another autobiography like this because the rise to success is something I’m always interested in- except for socialites. Bleh.
