Sophia Amoruso, founder and owner of fashion site NastyGal, poses at her offices in Los AngelesBy Piya Sinha-Roy LOS ANGELES (Reuters) – A college dropout who has gone on to build a $100 million fashion business, NastyGal founder Sophia Amoruso has lifted the lid on her unlikely journey from thief to chief, rags to riches and anti-capitalist to CEO. “#Girlboss,” Amoruso’s first foray into writing, has garnered attention since its release this month for the intimate details of the entrepreneur’s turbulent past: from being a broke and shoplifting youngster to harnessing the power of the Internet to sell vintage clothing on eBay. Sitting in her 55,000-square-foot (5,100-square-meter) loft office in downtown Los Angeles, the Louis Vuitton-clad Amoruso oversees hundreds of employees at NastyGal headquarters, her eBay business now a flourishing online fashion brand.
