While ordinarily I’m not a huge fan of giving an automatic shout out to a label, especially in such bold form as giving them the headline of a post, I am a fan of the collection which much like my lifestyle is actually called Young, Fabulous and Broke. It always makes me giggle when I’m walking on my sales floor and I overhear other admirers of this collection caught not necessarily by the pieces (which NEVER seem to have hanger appeal, but come to life once put on,) but rather by the catchy name. Yes, people believe it or not fashion girls get easily caught up in slogans and fun names. That’s what got me to commit to a Juicy Couture sweater years ago that said “for nice girls who like stuff.” I remember exclaiming to my friend who was with me during that shopping adventure, “I’m a nice girl! And I like stuff!” Her response, “oh God.” I still laugh about that till this day, and because of the fun memory I will never get rid of that piece.
Ok, but in all seriousness, Young Fabulous and Broke makes dressing boho chic look absolutely fabulous. If you ever stumble upon one of the jersey cotton creations at a store, I highly encourage you to try a piece on. I’ve known for years I like their pieces, but I’ve never committed until I found this dress. After all, tie dye, maxi and wrap effects? Sold! I’m already contemplating the various ways in which i can change it up. Dress it up with heels? Dress it down and give it more of a hippie effect? The possibilities for this piece are endless! And when you’re inspired or challenged by a piece to infuse it with your own personality I call that a successful investment. These days, since me and my boyfriend are saving up to buy a place of our own I need to choose my investments wisely. So at the end of the day I truly am, young, fabulous and broke.
