About Us

Welcome to Broke & Chic—fashion, beauty and decor for the empty wallet! We’re a new kind of publication for the career-driven woman on a budget.

We’re here to teach you how to have it all without going into debt. You’ll never see $1,000 shoes or $2,000 dresses. Instead, you’ll learn how to shop smarter, dress better, work more efficiently, live healthier, and stay up-to-date on everything new — regardless of income.

Mission Statement

We want to be the go-to publication that helps smart, driven women live their lives to the fullest no matter what stage they are in — from struggling student to thriving executive.

About Our Founder

Yes, this skirt was thrifted 🙂

Broke & Chic was founded in 2011 by Amanda Raye. After spending her savings to move to the world’s most fashionable city—New York, she knew she had to find ways to stay on-trend without going into debt. Instead of maxing out her credit cards, she learned how to shop smart. With her new found knowledge, Broke & Chic was born.

Amanda loves good coffee, killer workouts, bright lipstick, and thrifting with her husband.
