Christmas is just around the corner, which means that holiday party season is in full swing! There's so much to look forward to this time of year, but this season can be hard on the wallet as well. Between gifts for friends and family, food for delicious holiday feasts, and (unfortunately for Nick and I) outrageously high gas bills, December isn't exactly the most budget-friendly month of the year. But luckily, if you want to look cute for that upcoming Christmas soiree, you can still do so without breaking the bank!
So today we have something super special in store for you! We're going to be sharing not one... not two.... but SIX different holiday looks all for under $100! We're so excited because we're teaming up with 5 other bloggers to show you a variety of looks, from a variety of stores, for a variety of price points. The more the merrier, right?! Okay, let's meet the bloggers! (And don't forget to check out the giveaway details at the bottom of the post!)

If you're new to The Surznick Common Room, then you may be unfamiliar with my fashion philosophy. In a nutshell, I look for pieces that offer versatility, longevity, and most importantly, pieces that are budget-friendly. My look today encompasses all of these traits. The only piece I purchased recently for this look is my red A-line Oasap dress, and guess how much it cost me? ONLY $20! Everything else I already had on hand, so when I say "Under $100" I mean WAY under $100! Woop woop!
Not only was this dress inexpensive, it is also well made for the price and definitely looks and feels more expensive than it is! The bright red totally screams Christmas, especially when styled with this adorable white and gold bow belt, but this dress would also be great for Valentine's Day, a wedding, you name it! Glitter and sequins are definitely popular for the holiday season, but I think choosing a look that can be worn many different ways is a great alternative!
I'm not an over-the-top accessories kind of gal, so I kept it simple with my key bracelet (also seen here), a necklace that was my grandmother's, my bow belt (also seen here), and a simple gray purse (also seen here). I paired my dress with black tights and patent black heels.
