My name is Amanda Katherine a.k.a. AK.

I’m a twenty-something-year-old writer. 

I created Dope & Broke with young, fashionable women in mind that either don’t want to or can’t pay high prices for clothes, beauty products, etc. at the moment because we are busy trying to get our lives together and save for a future.


I love fashion and I love shopping but I for one certainly do not have the extra cash lying around to spend $350 on a sweater or $900 on a pair of boots. I would love to, but I can’t.

Plus, as any fashionista would know, trends are constantly changing and I can’t afford to keep buying new clothes if they come with those hefty price tags.

By the time the bills are paid… there’s not usually a whole lot left over for whatever else you want that month…ugh, adulthood. AM I RIGHT ?!

But it’s important to remember that every successful person has had to persevere through their own struggles in order to come out on top in the end.

So follow your dreams, go for your goals, do what you want, and work hard and good things will come. #WINNING

Like Beyonce says, “I work hard, I grind ’til I own it.”

For now, we’ll just fake it ’til we make it. You can dress to impress and no one will know you literally spent less than $100 on your whole outfit.

Dope & Broke directs women to the best cheap, fashionable shopping websites, provides affordable alternatives to celebrity street style outfits, explores new trends and styles at a fraction of the price, offers exclusively picked clothing selections, and features budget-friendly lifestyle & beauty posts.

Scouring the web for cheap clothes and deals is not the easiest. It’s time-consuming people, let me tell ya. And searching the entire internet is endless and pointless if you don’t know what shopping sites to go to and what to look for.




It’s so hard to tell which online clothing sites are legit and worth purchasing from and because of that, online shopping definitely has its risks…

Exhibit A: This lady ordered a top from one of those cheap Chinese wholesaler-retailers that you always see advertised on Facebook… LOL and they sent her clothes small enough for a cat.




With links to the exact products featured in the posts, you can order an entire outfit for less than you would have spent on maybe one or two items at a department store with just the click of your mouse. It doesn’t get any easier than that, come on.

Order confirmed. Now all you have to do is wait for the mailman to drop it off on your front porch and you’ve got a brand new outfit for the weekend or for work or whatever!

Just because you don’t have a whole lot of money in the bank right now does not mean that you cannot dress the way that you want to dress. Shopping in stores is so overrated.

Dope & Broke is for women with designer taste who love experimenting with the hottest trends but are stuck shopping on a broke girl budget.

I’m sharing some online styling tips that I’ve learned over the years, reviewing the best affordable shopping sites and gathering fashion and beauty inspiration from the most glamorous women in the world.

Copy celebrity outfits that you are obsessed with, try out that new trendy piece you’re not sure you’re going to like but totally want to give it a go anyway, and learn about new places to shop and new beauty & lifestyle products to buy at affordable prices. 

You can look and feel like amazing bucks without spending it.


Remember, you don’t have to go broke to look dope.

Be original. Be you. Be dope.



‘Cuz we DOPE girls, we ***flawless
