A Sai of Hoodie

Sometimes we see loungewear as just that, lounge-wearBUT -don’t you ever feel like you want to feel comfortable in something comfortably sexy too?

So for this laid back look, I cut up my leggings into capris -I just felt like the color needed to be cut down a bit and a little bare leg never hurt anybody. My men sized hoodie was long enough to cover the booty, the longer the better ladies (and gentlemen)! You can even get them as big and long as you want to wear as a dress with over the knee boots – SEX-Y! Speaking of sexy, the heels were the perfect compliment to the hoodie’s side silver zipper (so sorry there’s no close up, I promise there will be a next time).

Sexy (there’s that word again) and comfy is my mood as of late, will you join me?

How’s your hoodie collection stacking up?

Love, BudgetSai

In the Fluff

For those not keeping track, it’s been a weird Winter for New York and the rest of the East Coast. This past weekend we hit all time lows temps! Brutally cold weather only means one thing for me: faux fur. If you don’t have a faux friend to keep you warm or it’s just not your cup of tea, piling layers on top of layers is your best survival plan. There was a point where I couldn’t feel my face from being outside no more than 5 minutes! However, my goal this Winter is to fight through the temperatures with fashion. I will not surrender and wear sweats, I WILL NOT!

This total fluff of mine is from Topshop. The color is in and guess what? It goes perfectly with an all black ensemble, letting this baby shine on her own. I’ve been trying to find the perfect sombrero for my head shape to wear this Winter, a change up from the usual functional Winter hats. This one flatters my oval face, keeps me warm, and it’s cute too.  Finished it off with boots, thick leggings and a turtleneck bodysuit -no skin in sight, but still oh so sexy.

Questions? What would you like to see (more of ) on the blog?

I Believe I Can Fly

…in my Loeffler Randall boyfriend cape. The best thing about Fall is the different jackets, cardigans, and capes you can throw on over your outfit and make it a part of your outfit. Outerwear doesn’t have to be just a piece of clothing to protect you from the up and down weather, let it be a fashion statement too. Leave it on and show it off. 🙂

Happy Hump Day!

Slept In Pink

Pink isn’t my favorite color, but silky shirts are a favorite of mine. The black piping makes it resemble a pajama shirt. Okay I will never think it’s a good idea to walk around. In the street. With pajamas on. No. Don’t do it! This shirt looks like something you can sleep in, but you probably shouldn’t because you’ll be ironing forever.

I paired my shirt with my BLANKNYC vegan leathers, gold pumps to match the buttons and a pink lip just because. The duster coat I can’t stop wearing (when are they going to restock in the other colors?!) topped of this “slept so good I left with my pajamas” look.

Do you have favorite leather leggings (Jeggings too)? Could this be your go to holiday look? How do you feel about those crazy kids wearing pajamas outside of their home?

Christmas is a week away! Have you done all of your Christmas shopping? Are you thinking twice about gifting pajamas this year?

Black Friday

Freezing weather came early and so did Black Friday! To fight off those blistering temperatures I decide to wear an all black look to keep me warm. It’s never a good thing to wear leather leggings in the cold without a pair of tights underneath. It really kept me warm, even brave enough to take off my coat to show you all the rest of my outfit.

The booties are truly a favorite of mine and I actually recommend suede booties over leather ones. I especially like it when the boots age a bit and it starts to show, a vintage touch that can tone down a head to toe sequin look. I paired my leggings and booties with one of my thicker turtlenecks for added warmth and my wool coat for a feminine and sophisticated finish.

The red on my nails stood out even more when I accessorized with all sorts of rings: cocktail, statement and midi rings. The icing on the cake is none other than a pair of black sunglasses, it has New York written all over it.

Do you live in black clothing? Do you think “all black everything” is a New York thing?

Happy Friday! Happy Weekend!

Football is a sport that is an exciting and exhilarating American past time. If you’re anything like me, no matter how casual the event is, I like to have the option of wearing high heels even if it is just going to the bar and watching a big game.

Everyone looks forward to get through the holidays just to get to the Super Bowl. I’m rooting for Colin and the 49ers one hundred percent! Crossing my fingers! Now I’m not close to being a football expert, but I can dress for the occasion with Fanatics. Fanatics has an overwhelming amount of NFL jerseys to choose from on their website, but I stayed true to my love for the color red and of course the 49ers. Football season is a cold one and sometimes you have to pile on layers like this leather jacket to keep warm. So, don’t forget your hats, scarves and gloves.

I chose a pair of Levi’s jeans, a perfect fit to watch the 49ers playing at their home, Levi’s stadium. Don’t forget to pump it up in leopard heels, furry clutch and midi rings.  I like to give every outfit or trend a glamorous touch so while I root for my favorite team in the stands or at the bar, I still feel like myself. A girl has to always look her best wherever you choose to watch the game!

What’s your favorite football team?

Are you a true Fanatic?

Who’s ready for some Thursday Night football?!
