It's been nearly a decade since Sophia Amoruso opened her Nasty Gal Vintage store on eBay while working at the Academy of Art University. Now, with the recent release of her book #GIRLBOSS, Amoruso has returned to her Bay roots, reopening her eBay store for a flash sale. The thirty-nine items are from Amoruso's private collection and include labels like Jean Paul Gaultier, Hermès, and Moschino.
Also up for grabs are two opportunities to rub elbows with the Girl Boss herself. Sales go toward the #GIRLBOSS Foundation that awards grants to female entrepreneurs. The auction ends on May 29, and in true eBay fashion, bidding appears to be fairly conservative at this stage in the game. So set your alarms and prepare yourself for a race to the finish. This ostrich feather jacket is just too good to pass up without a fight.
