Holiday Party Looks Under $150: Dinner Party at Home

We all end up attending a frabjillion holiday parties, and want to look like the belle of the jingle ball at each one. We've also all got to-gift lists as long as our arm. Budget-wise, those two statements don't always go hand-in-hand, so each of us OB editors have come up with a complete head-to-toe holiday party look for different types of parties for $150 or less. That way, you'll look like the special snowflake you are, while still having a little cash left over to buy Great Aunt Mildred that bath powder set she's been dropping hints about.

A dinner party is my kind of holiday shindig. Having my house full of friends and my fridge overflowing with bubbly truly says party to me. Of course, I get frantic in the hours before people arrive prepping all the food, but in the end we're fat, happy and drunk and the night was a success. Here's a hostess outfit that'll have you looking chic while still able to cook.

A wrap dress will be comfortable and easy to move, as well as easy to clean if (when) you spill a little something on it. Shimmering flats are festive while still allowing you to zip from the kitchen to the dining room. Hot rollers are a necessity because you're not going to have time ti sit in front of a vanity with your curling iron - put 'em in, prep your dinner and pull 'em out moments before guests arrive for instant glam hair.

3. Wanted Lario ($39)
4. Conair Extreme Heat Jumbo and Super Jumbo Rollers ($20)

If I'm not shopping or working out, I'm planning a social gathering of some sort, ranging from a Big Lebowski Bash, Stitch 'n' Bitch, or an Evening of Cocktails and Crudité. Ask me about fitness, crafts, fashion, makeup, hostess gifts, good tunes or my ultimate shopping victory: size 12 rhinestone and spike studded pumps for Vegas.
