Being Citybroke is about perspective. It’s about seeing glitter in the gutter and a sense of humor when life is giving you everything you don’t exactly want and you’re hanging on for a dream that you sometimes can’t remember.
It’s not sales or survival - it’s an electronic letter from the trenches. It’s what suits who make $60K in at age 24 can’t even imagine. It’s Freedom. It’s Poverty. It’s Broken. It’s Beautiful.

TRUE STORY: I only interview in 1 outfit

AND it's a black dress. Suits are expensive and they wrinkle. And only fancy ones (Theory please!) look good on me. Solution, I always interview in the same black Calvin Klein dress. For my job at Forbes I had 3 interviews. 3 different people to impress, one little black dress - ha!

The best part is it's very fitted and has some synthetic in it or something (I don't know!) so I can roll it up in a ball and pull it unwrinkled out of my suitcase. Now that is a good friend.

So, ladies on a budget trying to land the dream job - Screw the suit. Dresses look chic, cost less and show confidence.
