Broke 207

Allie Munier started writing Broke207 in 2009 as a way to help herself rein in her finances and chip away at unruly student loan debt. 3+ years of couponing, thrifting, and swapping her way around the state later, she has slightly less student loan debt, and a completely unexpected enthusiasm for writing. She's still ridiculously cheap, but these days you'll find her writing about everything from Batman to glitter tampons. She resides in Portland with her canine life partner Kazuki, and her ever growing collection of vintage melamine sugar bowls and 50s era nurse fiction.

Fore Front Fashion

Founded in July 2010, Laura Serino, new to the Portland area, began seeking out the fashion scene in Portland.

A longtime reader of street style blogs, and inspired by the personal style she was viewing in town, she took to the streets to start photographing the individual style of Maine residents.
