Retailer and #Girlboss aficionado Nasty Gal just laid off over 20 employees last week and according to WWD, this hasn't been the first round of layoffs this year. Back in February the company cut out a smaller number of jobs, but combined, the layoffs account for a 10% total staff cut in 2014. (At the end of 2013, Nasty Gal employed about 280 people.)

"We made some changes yesterday in order to strategically reorganize the business to fit our vision of the future," Sophia Amoruso, founder, CEO, and creative director of the company told WWD last Friday. According to the report, the cuts primarily affected Nasty Gal's technology team and its PR team, as the company is transitioning PR coverage out to agencies rather than an in-house staff.
