The Guide to Having Fun in NYC When You’re Broke

The Guide to Having Fun in NYC When You're Broke - Free and Cheap Things to do in NYC // ew & pt

Now that I’m about to graduate, I’ve been extra aware of how and where I spend my money, but I don’t want to let my saving interfere with where I find entertainment, ya feel me? I’m sure you don’t want to either. I’ve noticed that some of the most fun times I’ve had with friends are times where not a lot of money needed to be spent, and thus this post was born.

These past two weeks I’ve been having a lot of fun in NYC.

My New York Fashion Week Experience

So I went to a show at New York Fashion Week. I’m still in shock. Granted, I wasn’t quite esteemed enough to have a seat, but I did get to attend an incredible fashion show as press. I’d stand in heels for an hour any day if it meant getting to witness the magic of a runway.

I attended the Sherri Hill Fall 2017 show and if her name sounds familiar it’s because you most definitely drooled over her gowns when you were shopping for prom. My prom Pinterest board was flooded with Sherri Hill’s dresses and although I couldn’t quite splurge, I was happy to be fawning over them. Even now, as a college student who can even less so afford the dresses, I’m still just as happy to be admiring them.

I covered the event for a media company and was lucky enough to bring along my main blog photographer (and best friend!). Everything in the show looked incredibly dazzling and sparkly and I was almost blinded. Aside from death and taxes, one thing in life is sure: Nothing sparkles quite like a Sherri Hill gown under spotlights. 

Now, I’m not sure if this applies to every show at NYFW but this is what I learned from this particular experience.
