SATURDAY JULY 28th IT’S A PARTY IN THE STREETS!!!
Well-played, Roberta’s. Brunch: uniting hipsters and bros since 2012.
Spotted in Williamsburg near Berry and N. 7th.
PhiladelphiaPhilly the new Brooklyn?You’re burned out on Brooklyn, you can’t afford Manhattan, you’re too bratty for Queens, so what do you do? My friend Ben, a recent Brooklyn ex-pat, has the answer: “If you want to live in Brooklyn and pay half in rent, move to Philly!” he proclaimed, the night before he left the island for good.….And he’s not my only friend to flee what is sometimes (condescendingly) referred to as the “sixth borough.”With lower rents and cheaper beer, is Philly the dream of Brooklyn, actually realized?
Welcome to gratuitous picture of a brokelynite. The broke story here is all in the cork wedges. I’m gonna tell you a little something about ONLINE RETURNS and what they mean.
If you go to a store that carries multiple brands, ie: a department store, Anthropologie, Urban Outfitters, maybe Topshop, etc, the odds are that their selection online is greater than their brick and mortar selection. When a person returns something they purchased online to a store, and the item isn’t in stock, it is generally on MEGA SALE. In this case, Urban Outfitters was carrying Kork-Ease wedges online, but at the storefront location on 14th st and 6th ave… these were one of a kind. And they were 50% off of their usual $135 price tag.
How can you spot an online return at a store like Urban Outfitters? Well, the item will be one-of-a-kind generally. They might be in the sale section. They radiate a vaguely aloof/dejected vibe and are in desperate need of your love. This is intuitive for me but I hope these tips assist you on your next shopping excursion.
Yes, it’s that time of week again. Where I share with you my outfit and tell you how much everything cost. At a glance, you may think this look isn’t too ‘broke’ - I mean, $69 is pretty steep for someone with almost no money in their bank account… right?
Sometimes, you gotta shop quality. Again, you might now be thinking “Urban Outfitters, really?” We place so much focus on the little black dress that I think the little black DAY dress can fall by the wayside. I’ve worn this thing approximately 1 billion times in the last year, give or take, so the cost per wear is low. It’s science.
Same goes for the shoes. I’ve worn them to death over the last year and a half I’ve owned them. I recommend catching the sales at LF and MiniMarket because they have some serious deals for those who normally are of the Salvation Army contingent.
Gratuitous picture of a broke person featuring Brokelyn/Broadist’s own Caroline Shadood. While talking about yourself in the 3rd person is disconcerting, here are some broke outfit details.
Thrift finds were traded via store credit, but I hope this gives you a sense of how much things might cost at Crossroads Trading Company in Williamsburg, and Re/Dress (RIP) in Cobble Hill. To see the full post, click here.
