Angelic

When I wear white I feel like I’m glowing. I like to think of it as body conscious without the figure hugging or at times…squeezing. It’s bright, it’s happy- oh who am I kidding, all black makes me as happy. I just felt like walking on air in this outfit.  I bought this dress because I thought I was actually going to go places this Summer. I was wrong, but even if this late in the game I can give some Summer advice. If you love it, you don’t have to wear it the moment you buy it, or in the season you buy it. If you’re one of those people who trend your way into fashion, then you might end up saying shit will I ever wear crochet again, or white or a maxi dress? But there’s always next season or next year. Truth be told, I never loved crochet, even thought about eliminating from this dress. My tailor didn’t have the balls to ruin my dress so he advice me to try it myself (the damage/ responsibility would be all on me), good call. What I felt had no end were my sky high heels. The dress was super long for my 5 feet 3 inch frame so I really didn’t mind going the extra half a foot! 6 inches closer to cloud nine, all dressed in white.

How was everyone’s Summer?

Are you transitioning your favorite pieces into the cool weather? Tell me all about it.

If you ever need a advice just shoot me an email. 🙂 Happy Weekend!

Love, BudgetSai

Olive You

Olive in my eyes is another neutral that can go with many things in your closet. It seals the deal on many outfits and it’s a lighter option for the warmer temperatures. Just like black, you can pair it with simple colors like white, nude, and navy. If you want to be a little more daring go for a monochromatic look and throw on a pop of fuchsia colored lipstick for a little summer sass. It’s my guilty pleasure and this jacket can be thrown over dresses, over tops, as a top, or heck you can even tie it around your waist if it gets too hot!

For my outfit I chose a cream colored bodysuit making it stand out more, but wearing all black underneath can still make this bomber look on trend. The denim skirt was and is another obsession of mine, I have about 5 different styles. The difference in this one is I made a choker out of it. I felt that this length/structure could have gone a little shorter so I took off the seam and went to my favorite tailor and…voila! Choker number 3589! This year’s trends are killing me! I love them! I can’t get enough of them!

Which color is constant in your wardrobe?

Who else is into reworking clothes you own? What have you made over recently?

Green With Envy

I can’t believe I am seeing the words Fall and Winter already! I don’t want the Summer to end, but girl and boy has it been HOT! To mix up a little bit of both seasons, I took an olive color midi, easy going dress and paired it with camel/brown ankle booties. Closed shoes are also a great way of covering up your ‘no time for a pedicure’ toes! The sunglasses and bright red lip added edginess to my Pre-Fall look.

Are you still shopping for Summer clothes or is your mind set on preparing for the Fall?

Leather (Mini) Stroll

…on a Saturday afternoon. My feet were still burning from the day/night before so I took a break and paired my leather mini and bodysuit (again) with one my favs, Converse low tops. Thinking of purchasing high tops for more of these low key Summer weekends, what do you think?

Hearts On Hearts On Hearts

Feeling oh so lovey dovey on this Friday afternoon, passing by Bleeding Hearts, the love wall by James Goldcrown on Mott Street and Broome.

It’s not the first time I wear this dress, but here I wanted to add gold accents to my all black all the time outfit. A neutral lip, bright red nails and my hair down finished what I like to call a modern day Audrey Hepburn.

Happy Friday and Happy Weekend!

Fur Realz

I threw on some faux fur over my jacket to keep warm and stylish, but I still felt like I needed some gloves, a scarf and my Uggs. The cold isn’t playing games, it just doesn’t want go away! I can’t get enough of the Canadian tuxedo also known as the denim on denim trend, it’s so easy to dress up with all sorts of pumps or sandals. This time I went back to my camouflage pair from the Cameron Silver for Nine West and mixed some gold accents.

Are you all still layering up? Where is Spring weather?
