'City Chicis constantly inventive, amazingly granular, and a blast to read.'

'I love the book. If only I'd had it for the past ten years--it would've saved me lots of heartache, bad furniture, and most importantly, money... It gives you license to scrimp and pinch--and makes you feel more empowered to do so.'
Gigi Guerra, brand marketing director of Madewell | former editor of Lucky magazine
'City chicks no longer need to turn tricks or sell dope in order to have a glamorous lifestyle-- just read Nina's brilliant book.'
Simon Doonan, creative director for Barneys New York | author of Confessions of a Window Dresser
'Being an 'it' girl has never been about how much cash you had in the bank, and now is the time to embrace your inner recessionista. Willdorf's book proves that being frugal and being fabulous are not mutually exclusive.'
