Hey guys! Blake here! I’m here to let you in on yet another secret.

If you’re anything like me, you like to keep a watchful eye on your bottom line…making sure to spend wisely. Well, the holiday season can make that just a little tough. With so many friends and families to buy gifts for and a million and one holiday parties to attend—which, of course, means you need a new outfit for each—the expenses can really start to add up. Which is why I love shopping at Lord & Taylor!

Lord & Taylor carries a wide variety of brands so you can always find the perfect look to fit your budget. I’ve picked out a few of my favorite holiday pieces from L&T all for less than $500 so you can see just how easy it is.

The first item I picked out was a tuxedo dress from Misha Collection. At $270, some might consider this a bit of a splurge piece, but I personally feel its a worthwhile investment. It’s great for the holiday season, but also for so many other occasions beyond that. It’s both versatile (can’t you just see it layered over a great top?!) and timelessly classic. It’s a piece I’ll be able to wear for many years to come and worth every penny.

I paired the dress with a pair of sequined slouch booties from the Jessica Simpson Collection. I really don’t have to say much about them. Just look at them! They’re actual literal perfection! And what I love most about them—besides everything—is that the material holds its shape on its own. So I don’t have to worry about trying to keep them up on my legs. They just stay put and flawless all day!

With such bold wardrobe pieces, I kept it pretty simple with accessories. Just a simple minaudière clutch and tassel earrings from Lucky Brand. Both of which were practically a steal!

I’m feeling pretty proud of myself that I not only pulled together the perfect holiday look from Lord & Taylor at a great price, but I also snagged pieces that I’ll be able to rock all year long.

Now, invite me to your holiday get together, please, so I can get this show on the road!
