“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.
