simple

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

Roaming

DISCLAIMER: I’ve had my hair slicked back lately because of the humidity and I’ve been trying to work out as much as I can to get back that ‘Summer body.’

Speaking of body, I wore a body hugging midi dress to roam the HOT and red streets of Chinatown. I kept it minimal with two of my favorites: black shades and lace up sandals.

How are you all handling the heat? 

Have a lovely weekend!

xoxo, BudgetSai

Love Is Like A Pair of Levi’s

…without all of the seams it is not a pair of Levi’s. -Michelle Geaney

A pair of jeans and a white shirt is the best way to start off the work week. Essentials like these never get old. You can spice up this classic look with some high heeled sandals, flats or sneakers. I say whatever you feel comfortable in, especially on a Monday!

Do you live in your Levi’s?

Have a wonderful work week!
