Whenever we’re craving cool-girl style on a real-girl budget, there’s one website we know will always have exactly what we need. Nasty Gal is our go-to for new and vintage looks, from date-night dresses to boyfriend jeans and everything in between.
And, now we’re even more obsessed with the brand after getting to know the badass founder and CEO, Sophia Amoruso. She got her start selling vintage clothes on eBay in 2006, and has since built the site into a $100-million retail business. In her new book, #GIRLBOSS, she’s sharing what it takes to be the boss in your own life, whether your passion lies in fashion, finance, food — anything.
Want even more hands-on (and heels-on) advice? You may be in luck. We are beyond excited to announce that we’re teaming up with Nasty Gal for a once-in-a-lifetime internship opportunity. The lucky winner will spend three weeks cutting her teeth at Nasty Gal HQ in L.A. and three weeks working with us at the R29 offices in New York. Two of your favorite brands teaming up? Talk about a power couple. Here’s what you need to do to apply:
1. You've got the drive, but what about the style? Submit a pic of your first-day-on-the-job look, and use three hashtags to describe what that outfit says about you.
2. In 140 characters or less (flex those social-media muscles!), tell us about something you've accomplished in the past year that you're really proud of.
3. It takes one to know one — a #GIRLBOSS, that is. Tell us about five #GIRLBOSSES who've inspired you and why. (They can be fashion designers, artists, tightrope walkers, whoever!)
And, we're not done yet. Everyone knows the advice “Dress for the job you want.” We’re also giving away $1,000 to shop Nasty Gal for your ultimate work wardrobe. With all that cash, you’ll be well on your way to the corner office. Simply click here and enter your email address for your chance to win the shopping spree and learn how to apply for the internship.
