Everyone dreams of floating down the New York City streets in Hermes scarves and Jimmy Choos like Sarah Jessica Parker from Sex and the City. But, when your living off of a freshman’s meal swipes and dining dollars to afford Ramen noodles and cold Chick-fil-A from Weinstein, your version of New York glamour may be reduced to baggy Abercrombie sweats and convincing yourself your sixth grade Tamagotchi is the new Fendi pom keychain.
