In Trench We Trust

 Whether you’re into a trench coat or not, it comes in handy as a dress when your laundry isn’t done. Wrap it up, tie up and don’t loosen up any of your buttons. I paired them with my Fall friendly booties and added a belt of my own, you know just in case you want to go out after laundry day.

Ladies and gentlemen, a trench coat will never go out of style and it’s never too late to add one to your wardrobe. Rain comes and goes in all seasons and we should always be prepared for it, and look good while doing so.

I purchased this H&M coat years ago because it kept everything in place. Some trenches/raincoats aren’t that forgiving. And yes some of us wear it just for a moment, but this staple serves as a great foundation for a fashion moment. You’ll be less frustrated that there is a downpour, and I’ll be sure you’ll stand out from all the rest.

What are your favorite Fall staples? How would you update a timeless look?

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?

And I chose to in this sparkly number. Its an oldie, but goodie in my closet. I don’t wear it that often, but when I do I feel really, really sassy!

Does it shine bright like a diamond?
