ONE. Crate & Barrel Kirby Cordial Glass — As we head into the holiday party season, it makes sense to stock up on supplies for entertaining. Even if you end up never throwing a get together, you can never have too much barware, right? The Kirby Cordial Glass is dramatic and almost futuristic looking with its heavy glass and dramatic curves. I can easily picture myself hanging out with some friends, sipping an after dinner drink from one of these, but I think they’re pretty enough that I would also probably pour iced tea into one and use it during the daytime. Best of all, each glass is only $6.95, so even a standard set of four is totally affordable. How often does that happen? – Stacey

TWO. Betsey Johnson Lip Studs –I came across these earrings while browsing Piperlime and instantly fell in love with the slightly kitchy, slightly chic, very cute pair of earrings.  For those of you who love Betsey’s fun, carefree style, but can’t quite pull off one of her party dresses, these stud earrings are a perfect alternative to add a little bit of sass to your daily look.  Priced at $25, this Betsey jewel is accessible to every girl!  – Carolyn

THREE. UO Jewel Box Bracelet – I love this sparkly, glittery bracelet from Urban Outfitters. It’s intricately layered with link chains and rows of blinged out rhinestones. This bracelet would be the perfect accessory for any holiday party occasion and looks a lot more expensive than it really is. So pretty, without breaking the bank! – Nina

FOUR. Kate Spade Idiom Thin Enamel Bangle – I posted earlier in the week about some Kara Ross bangles, which although beautiful, can’t make it to our Cheap and Chic list because of price. However, these tutti frutti brass bangles from Kate Spade full qualify at $42. Each one is a vibrantly hued fruit basket of a color, featuring inspirational engraved sayings on the inside like “Sing a Different Tune” and “Tickled Pink.” Wear a whole armful or mix and match with other various wrist bracelets for variety. – Kathleen

FIVE. Roger & Gallet Bois d’Orange Boxed Soap Trio — I am obsessed with this scent – a mix between a fresh citrus and a sexier woody depth. At only $16, this luxurious soap trio is the perfect hostess gift for any of those parties and gatherings you’ll be attending this upcoming holiday season. – Connie
