“I’m under no delusion that I’m a fashion expert,” said Broke But Bougie's Vice President of Content, Bridget Lappert. “I’m just your best friend in this with you.”
Broke But Bougie brings to life a unique vision of hope – that will help these young women get through trying times while maintaining their budgets. Broke But Bougie offers fashion advice, etiquette on topics like thank you notes versus thank you texts and empowering stories on how to do it all on their own.
“You’re fresh out of college. Debt, ramen noodles and a plastic bowl are just about all you have to call your own,” said Lappert. “Good luck looking the part at your first job interview when all you’ve got is your mom’s old business suit—but now we're here to help.”
The writers and contributors have searched all over to bring readers the best tips, tricks, and bargains in fashion, eateries and beauty products. A notable section of Broke But Bougie is a section called “Women You’ve Never Heard of.” Broke But Bougie will bring to life the hysterical and trying stories of assistants to executives, politicians, musicians and more.
“We see quotes every day from women like Mother Teresa, Coco Chanel and Amelia Earhart, but what about the assistant that can never catch a break but is the first into work every day,” said Lappert. “Not many of us will fly solo across the Atlantic Ocean, but we can all live incredible lives and accomplish great things. Sometimes the women you’ve never heard of are exactly the inspiration we need.”

- Be Bougie
- Beauty, Hair and Makeup
