Posted 428 days ago by Amanda Raye
Join Krrb and Furnish Green for a night of scavenging one-of-a kind vintage finds, free salsa lessons and enough sangria to keep you dancing through the night. All furniture in the Furnish Green showroom will have special Krrb-friendly prices, including $2-5 records and LP’s.
Bring your dancing shoes and be prepared to exit the dance floor with a doozy. At wallet-friendly prices, you’re sure to partner up with a gem from Paul McCobb, Cushman or Kling. One two cha cha cha!
Furnish Green is located at 1261 Broadway, Suite 505, New York City. Tickets are $5. All proceeds from ticket sales will go to Rhythm Break Cares, a non-profit senior citizen dance program. RSVP on Eventbrite. And do it soon because space is limited!
A night filled with affordable vintage furniture and free salsa lessons seems like a win to me! Hope to see you there!

Budget Decor: Katie’s Eclectic Bedroom
Posted 453 days ago by Amanda Raye
Last week, Broke & Chic meet up with one of New York’s most stylish residents: Katie is a 25 year-old budget friendly fashionista living and working in Manhattan. She loves good design, organization and diy projects.
I’d rather make something myself than pay for it. I hate going into Urban Outfitters and West Elm and seeing things that are $250 dollars that I could easily make myself.
Katie has lived in this Washington Heights apartment for about 2.5 years. Her room reminded me of those cute boutiques in the East Village with artfully displayed vintage jewelry, accessories and even furniture. Each corner has it’s own personal touch. Nothing has been left unstyled. She even spent an afternoon putting up shelves to display her shoes instead of just throwing them into a corner or closet!

B&C: Where did you get all these vintage treasures?
K: Every time I go on vacation I always try and purchase a vintage scarf. The rest are either from my grandma or the small vintage store where I’m from.
B&C: What’s your favorite part of your bedroom?
K: I love the chalkboard wall. Chalkboard paint is really cheap and you can have endless fun with it.
B&C: What are your favorite accessories?
K: Head accessories such as hats, headbands, and flowers. They’re my new fashion obsession!
B&C: What DIY project are you most proud of?
K: The shoe shelf!
