Rah B’s Tips on How to Slay on a Budget

Rah B's slay on a budget tips (1)

Just a few tips on how you can still slay while on a budget. I find that a lot of people do not check online for coupons before shopping.. BIG NO, NO!!!… Please do yourself a favor and pull out your phone before heading out or even while you are in the store before heading to the register… On top of the coupons some stores have it where you can sign up for e-mail and get an additional percentage off and you can combine both the online coupon and when you sign up.

I know clearance can be annoying to look through but you will find some really good items hidden on that crazy looking rack. Just take the time and look through it.

The first pic (which I did a blog post on yesterday) was $20.00… All dresses in store was $20 that day and what makes it even better is that I can mix and match that outfit (I can wear the floral dress alone, I can wear jeans and top with the Tulle Overlay Dress.. just to give you an idea). I love buying pieces where I can switch up the look. The floral two-piece set you see was also $20 (shout out to clearance) and as you can see you can do a few looks with that set. For example, the skirt can double as a cover up for a bathing suit, you can pair it with a crop top or bodysuit… Fashion is all about having fun and trying crazy things. Just be creative while adding a little bit of YOU into it.




What Am I Going to Wear To This Party?!

img_4870I received sooo many compliments on this outfit the night I wore it out to my sister-friend’s 30th birthday… I knew this day was coming for about a month and yet I still hadn’t found anything to wear for that night. I mean I am usually pretty good with knowing what I want to wear in my head and then attempting to go out and find it in the store. Sometimes I get lucky other times I have to change my vision on the outfit in my head.

But I just couldn’t seem to find anything I liked when I went out shopping… Sometimes I really wish I knew how to sew because it’ll be so much easier to get these ideas of an outfit out of my head. Anywhoo, I decided to go to H&M because for weeks I kept seeing this shirt I wanted to buy in the window… I wanted it until I walked in and it was $50.00… I turned around with the quickness… It suddenly wasn’t all that cute anymore, lol…

So, as I am looking around in Charlotte Russe I came across this cute little number…Did I mention I literally found this the NIGHT before?… The funny thing is I knew God wanted me to have it because it was an online return, a size Medium and also $20.00… I see you God, good looking out, lol… YUP!!! Got this two piece for $20.00… Who doesn’t love a good bargain! What I love is I can do a few different looks to this outfit (stay tuned for that)… Of course I had to add my own little touch to it I had paired it with a faux suede corset belt…

Shop This Look:

Dress- Tulle Overlay Midi Dress

Belt- Faux Suede Corset Belt


When the Spring/Summer Collection Hit the Stores…

I guess I should dedicate this entire post to Charlotte Russe, lol. No shade H&M.

I got a little carried away when shopping this past weekend. I’m so over this cold weather so seeing sooo many nice spring/ summer dresses out made me happy.

I love the fit of this dress, it’s very comfortable and lightweight. This dress can be worn to work with a blazer or a night out with the girls. I love when there are endless possibilities to one outfit, lol. When I go shopping I am usually looking for pieces that I can wear multiple ways.

If you truly know me then you know that Marshalls is another one of favorite stores next to Charlotte Russe and H&M & if you don’t know, now you know!! (Biggie voice), lol.

Anywho, while shopping in Marshalls I came across these Levi’s flared high waist jeans and it was like love at first sight… what made me fall deeper in love with them was that they were only $10.00!!!
