necklaces

Stripes and White Denim

…and lots of chains in this look. I pulled my hair back, tied up my shirt and was ready for this week’s heat wave alongside my vintage Gucci bag; a shopper makes it so much easier to carry around your personal belongings. You can do like Fabolous does, and just throw it in the bag!

How are you all handling the heat in the N Y C? Do you keep cool in denim like I do?

Welcome To The Jungle

I spent Mother’s Day with the special ladies in my life: mom, sisters and a few of my aunts. I love to get together with my family. I know there will always be laughter, food and more food!

Leopard is a favorite animal print of mine. Every time I wear it, I feel like a bad ass. You can either tone it down or tone it up like I did in a leather cuff, pouch and dainty accessories. It was so hot and sunny I felt like Tarzan moving from one shade to another just to get a good shot.

How do you wear leopard print? How was everyone’s Mother’s Day weekend?

Floral A Flare

Happy Monday!

When we think about 70’s fashion, we envision bell bottoms, bold prints, and very high wedge sandals. I took all three of these images and made it into one modern day outfit. I paired it with a biker jacket and classic wayfarers for a fresh spin on my otherwise very retro look.

How do you think I pulled off my second 70’s groovy-ness? What Spring trends have you tried lately?

Hope everyone has a groovy week!

xoxo, BudgetSai
