Smart is stylish — particularly when it comes to price tags. Just take a look at Grace Atwood, the "sparkle-obsessed" DIY blogger behind Stripes & Sequins and the director of social media for our beloved BaubleBar.com.

But it’s not quality over quantity with Atwood — with frequent trips to T.J.Maxx for fresh picks from her favorite designers, she gets armfuls of both.
Taking out some time from her two busy occupations, she took us down to her local T.J.Maxx to show us how one signature seasonal piece can cover lots of ground, when paired with additional on-trend picks.
