Girl Boss

“This isn’t a post about Prague,” I hear you all say, bemused. You’re right. There’s no mention of the Czech Republic’s beautiful capital beyond this sentence. Why? Because I just finished watching Girl Boss on Netflix and I had to write about it.

Full disclosure – there are no spoilers in this post.But what you will find are many, many reasons to watch this fantastic show, which is a loose – ‘real loose’, as the titles describe it – chronicling of the rise and rise of Sophia Amoruso to the self-proclaimed Girl Boss she is today.

So what’s so good about the show? Let’s start with Sophia, a cooler than cool independent young woman who uses her tenacity (plus a natural gift for style) to start clothing company, Nasty Gal.

Then there is the fashion. Think 1960/70s vintage reinvented and you’re there. I have never longed for a pair of flared jeans until seeing this …

Music is central to the show, and the soundtrack perfectly reflects the themes. Have Shazam at the ready, there’s many a song you’ll be desperate to add to your music library.

Have I mentioned Sophia’s hair yet? OMG. I used to have one of those huge fringes and after over a year of growing it out, it’s taking all my willpower not to reach for the scissors. Watch this space.

In short, Girl Boss is a funny, stylish, inspiring and entertaining show, with a really strong message. Put your mind to it, work hard, believe in yourself and anything is possible.

Have you watched Girl Boss yet? What did you think?

    I haven’t seen the show. The main reason is that I don’t like the name, Girl Boss, for me sounds tacky and it puts me off. The show sounds fab though, from what you say, so I might give it a try. x

    I’ve heard a lot about this show. Intrigued as how she’s portrayed, I have read a lot of interesting articles lately about the rise and fall of Nasty Gal and how she may or may not have practiced what she preached within the company. Still, I’ve heard that it’s a pretty motivating tv series!
