V Day, Me Day

I wouldn’t say I’m a huge fan of Valentine’s Day, but yes I am (Drita voice). I love all the red and pink hearts and all that other visible mushy-ness that comes with Valentine’s Day. It’s not only about a significant other, it’s a day to spread love to all those that deserve to be loved. Most importantly? Yourself. Love is a happy feeling and a way I feel happy is by putting on my best or not (lol). This was the perfect dress for dinner plans after work. Totally appropriate and playful with a pair of heart socks and Mary Janes. Still Sunny outside? Don’t forget to add a pair of fun heart sunglasses.

What are your Valentine’s Day plans?

Do you dress up for the occasion?

Have a fun-filled long weekend!

Love, BudgetSai

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

So Close

Good news everyone! Spring has quietly sprung its way into the east coast forecast. Mornings are still cold, and if you ask me…still coat worthy weather. Nevertheless I gave a warm welcome to some of my Spring staples in today’s look. Denim transcends seasons and trends so you can be rest assured it will always be a do in your closet. I chose to wear my denim jumper dress with a turtleneck, but to keep things on the springy side, I made sure it wasn’t black! I’m no fool, I made sure to add another layer to this look in case it got colder later on in the day. This dress is so versatile and I love that it’s a little more mature silhouette of a denim jumper dress, which can also be worn strapless! Let this be a warning that you’ll be seeing me rock a lot more denim this Spring!

What are your favorite denim pieces? How are you enjoying this puts me in a good mood weather?

xoxo, BudgetSai
