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.

Good Style + Trashy Stores + an Honest Wingman =

Cool clothes that you can buy and take home with you! They probably don't feel as luxe as they look, but hey, at least you look good. Don't expect a 20 dollar dress to last more than 10 wears, but it least polyester doesn't wrinkle or need to be dry-cleaned. When you make enough money to start using your savings account as something more than a psychological spending deterent, you can get investment pieces at Bloomies and JCrew.

Cheap & Trashy Shops that rock:
Joyce Leslie "Hot & Trendy Fashions" University at 8th street
Necessary Objects on Broadway btw Broome & Houston also avalible at
Strawberry on 14th near University
Foxy Lady on 14th near University (across from diesel)
Classier Alternatives: Forever 21 & H&M
