Sequin-essential

The Oscars were on two nights ago and I couldn’t help but bring a little red carpet glamour to my #OOTD.  I’ve worn this sequin skirt before, and if the Fall 2016 runways are any indication, sequins are having a comeback!  Sequins are no longer your go to last minute night out look, we’re wearing it to work and beyond! So, instead of going over the top, I decided to pair this glitzy number with an understated white button down à la Sharon Stone. The weather was beautiful in New York so I took myself out to the park for fresh air and a few photos. Who better than my city to be my VIP plus one?

If you’re into sequins and want some inspiration on how to wear it night and day, check out my history with all things shine –here, here, and here.

My best dressed during and after the Oscars has to be Rachel McAdams. The simplicity and elegance really stood out amongst the rest. She rocked that baby pink Naeem Khan dress and made it look sexxxy! Check out my Instagram (@budgetsai) for a side by side of her looks.

What were your favorite looks from the Oscars?

Thankful Repeat

Sometimes you’re running around looking for a new outfit for the holidays when you suddenly remember there may be a few options in your closet that need a redo. You don’t want to spend money on another piece of clothing that you’re only going to wear once! I know it may be boring to repeat a dress or shoes or both, but if Kate Middleton can do it and style it the same way every single time, you can too. -but better. Here I took 4 pieces I have worn in the past (1, 2, 3, and 4) and brought them together to give you Thanksgiving Day love.

How is everyone celebrating the holidays this year?
