Shop Talk: Broke Girl’s Guide

[tps_header]Partners Erin Bunch and Michelle Vick began Los Angeles-based company Broke Girl’s Guide on the belief that a budget should never limit women from leading the luxurious lifestyle they deserve. Their spending-savvy site provides the best of daily sales, offers and deals for wallet-friendly fashion, food and travel! See the scoop on their recent office redesign (by accomplished designers Jenn Pablo and Olivia Korenberg of Twofold LA) and how they’re encouraging ‘broke girls’ everywhere to live brilliantly!

Can you tell us a bit about how Broke Girl’s Guide began? And how did Twofold LA get its start?
Broke Girl’s Guide: We decided to launch a daily email dedicated to living the high life on a budget after working as assistants in Hollywood. Despite meager wages, we were expected to look great and go out all the time—and somehow manage to pay our sky-high Los Angeles rent. We wanted to create a guide that helped women in their 20s and 30s live the life they wanted while still being smart with their money.

Twofold LA: Having met in 2008 working for residential design firm Digs by Katie, we immediately connected based on a shared passion for thoughtful and inspired design. Twofold LA launched in 2011 after many long-winded conversations over a bottle of red wine where we both expressed our love of all things creative. Soon after, Twofold LA evolved into a comprehensive design studio offering services in interior, event and production design—essentially a one-stop shop for our clients.

  • Good thing you wrote broke with quotation marks. Really, isn’t their project the epitome of hypocrisy?

  • I would have loved to see just a bit more of their space, it seems like similar things were photographed at different angles & we only get to see a little corner of their office. It looks great though!

  • And where oh where is that blue blazer from!? I love it – would love to know who makes it!

  • Favorite feature yet!!! I am a college “broke girl” myself and love when features aren’t always full of designer labels. It’s great to see these girls I can completely relate to style their space. I am in the process of redecorating my apartment on a STRICT budget and I refuse to let my design style suffer. I’d love to feature my end result in a month!
