Being fashion forward, enjoying great food and finding fun things to do can be hard on a college budget.

But it necessarily does not have to be.

You just have to know the right places to visit and when to catch the right deals.

For Detroit Mercy college student, this does not have to be a problem.

The college campus is surrounded by many local malls, shops and boutiques where students can grab items to be fashion forward at a great price.

Though Livenois is still under construction, this should not stop you from enjoying what the Avenue of Fashion has to offer.

Construction has been underway for months and has impacted nearby businesses.

The Avenue of Fashion is one of Detroit’s historic landmarks.

Before there were malls, the avenue was a destination for luxury shopping, dining and a jazz legacy and culture.

The Avenue of Fashion is home to the famous Baker’s Keyboard Lounge and this lounge has been an iconic historical landmark since 1933.

Jazz musicians Art Tatum, Dave Brubeck, Louis Armstrong, Ella Fitzgerald, John Coltrane, Miles Davis and countless others have graced Baker’s stage.

From fried chicken to ribs and even smothered pork chops, the food will not leave you disappointed.

The looks range from casual wear to night-on-the-town or even date night.

Three Thirteen offers looks for men. It is home to many local brands.
