After you've gotten over the cuteness of our bow model, Phantom the Frenchie, sit back, watch, and learn how to make homemade bows! It's the perfect topper for all those great gifts you've purchased, and it's a good skill to have in your arsenal. Who needs store-bought bows when you can make ones that look this good?
Do you have shoes with scuffed heels in your closet? Yeah, we had a bunch too, which inspired us to find a quick fix for the holidays! Grab some glitter nail polish of your choice, and paint those scuffs away. It's the perfect solution for holiday parties and New Year's Eve attire!

You don't have to wear sequins to get noticed during the holidays. That's a lesson Ashley Madekwe practices and preaches. The actress and style setter behind the blog Ring My Bell showed off a pretty perfect, if not low-key, party look in a leather jacket, t-shirt, and Bebe Gold Collection embellished miniskirt ($298). Note: those are studs, not sequins.
That's because the fashion-savvy Madekwe knows that if you want to be a standout, you've gotta separate yourself from the pack: "Move away from the sequins, everyone is going to be wearing them. I'm more about embellishments like chunky jewels, studs and nails." Call it the downtown girl's holiday look if you want; the effect is a bit edgier and so much more unexpected than the sequined party top or glittered mini. Add lace-up booties à la Madekwe, and the result has "style pro" written all over it.
Recently, red carpet style has pingponged between sexy, flirty, and outrageous (Miley, anyone?). So, it was with a wave of excitement that we looked at the pictures coming in from the Dubai International Film Festival. Rooney Mara, a red carpet constant from last year, was gloriously back in a white, ruffled one-shoulder custom Lanvin dress. Naomie Harris, riding the wave of what might be her emerging season as a red carpet star, radiated in bright pink accented with a lace neckline and a train that fanned out to her side.
We know, we know . . . both are gorgeous. Still, one's gotta win. Which is your pick for today?
Though we are currently in denial about tonight's midseason finale of Scandal, we know Olivia and company won't disappoint on the suspense or style front. This season was chock-full of political and personal drama, but our favorite fixers tackled their woes in style. From statement coats and structured suits to ladylike sets and designer accessories, Liv and company are bringing their A-game to the small screen — and proving polished separates aren't just for the boardroom. Each week, we are tracking down exact items worn by the most fierce and fashionable fixers on The Hill.
After last week's emotional roller coaster — mommy dearest is less than perfect (understatement of the year), Quinn is in a position to execute Command (who is now the good guy?), and Cyrus showed actual emotion (team James all the way) — we're not sure how much more our hearts can take. Before settling in for another seat-gripping evening, get a sneak peek of all the regal looks from tonight's episode.
Karlie Kloss, dressed in another fabulous Coach-crafted outfit, made quite the fashion point last night: leather pants don't have to be edgy. Instead, the runway beauty paired a cropped pair with a thin gray sweater and Coach's pointed-toe Tabitha flats — the prim and proper look would be right at home in any office. Bag-wise, she sized down for evening, carrying the mini version of Coach's Borough bag (which has already earned a spot on our holiday wish list). Want to try the combo yourself?

We were shocked when we spotted these shoes sitting courtside at a recent Lakers game. Traditionally the domain of preppy-leaning guys nationwide, gray New Balance sneakers were the last thing we'd expect to see on this starlet — instead, you're more likely to find her on lists of the most out-there red carpet shoes around (though we love a cute outfit styled with sneakers). So who's wearing them?
