Buy Surly Online

"Girlboss," which begins streaming Friday, is based on the 2014 book by Nasty Gal founder Sophia Amoruso. Part memoir, part self-help book, the bestseller (styled "#Girlboss") recalled her rags-to-riches journey in online retailing. In 2006, Amoruso started selling vintage clothes on eBay. She was 22, the web was even younger, and Amoruso used MySpace to cultivate a like-minded following that appreciated her eye for unique pieces that she updated and styled.

After a night out with her BFF Annie (Ellie Reed), Sophia gets fired from her retail job. Before going home to an eviction notice, she heads to a local vintage shop, where she scores an East West calfskin jacket for a mere $9, later selling it on eBay for more than $600. "Know what your s--- is worth. You just got played," she tells the shop's surly owner (Jim Rash). "Bam, son!"

Nasty Gal's approach to vintage fashion sometimes involves scissors, horrifying more traditional purveyors. One seller, played by Melanie Lynskey ("Togetherness"), confronts Sophia after discovering she bought and customized one of her pieces. Lynskey returns in a later episode where an online forum for vintage eBay sellers manifests as an amusing roundtable full of people who like cats and use shorthand familiar to anyone who has spent time in an online comments section.
