Nasty Gal CEO Sophia Amoruso Book Signing
Gather all your power-ladies-in-training, and get your copy of Sophia Amoruso's new book, #GIRLBOSS, signed because this gal knows a thing or two about building a multi-million-dollar company. Since she began her cult-following fashion brand Nasty Gal right here in The Bay, it's only appropriate that we pay the fashion goddess some major dues.
When: Friday, May 9, 7 p.m.
Where: Books Inc. Opera Plaza, 601 Van Ness Avenue (between Golden Gate Avenue and Turk Street); 415-776-1111.

And, be sure to grab a glass of Champagne, a few macarons by Dana's Bakery, and flowers by Ashley Mueller. Baubles, bubbly, bakery, and blooms? Yeah, we're there.
When: Saturday, May 11, 1 to 5 p.m.
