Bosnak is a young professional with big dreams and a taste for all things Gucci and Prada. When she lands a job as a producer for a new talk show, she packs up her bags and moves to New York, where she finds a not-so-cheap apartment in Manhattan. Surrounded by hip restaurants, enticed by high-end designer boutiques, and under the misconception that you should never be seen in the same outfit twice, Karyn lets her spending spiral out of control. She owes $25,000 when she loses her job. Unwilling to phone home for help, Karyn takes the advice of a friend and creates a want ad for money. The twist--she posts her ad on the Internet. With the help of good-hearted strangers, debt consolidation, and the selling of her possessions on eBay, Karyn pulls herself out of debt. Since the story is told with self-deprecating humor and charm, Karyn's naivete and lame excuses for overspending are palatable, becoming a cautionary tale of the dangers of credit cards and the power of pride over Prada.
