What to do when you have an old jacket that is still Fab, but has gone drab? No need to be dramatic and rid of it, just take another look and see how it can be revived. This was what I did with a 5-year-old DKNY olive green jacket. When I first got it, I wore it to death. Ever since, it has just sat in my closet, with old memories to keep it company. The reason I loved it so was because I realized an olive green jacket pretty much goes with everything. It can be utilitarian, sporty, chic, or just plain casual. The neutral hue works for both Summer and Winter, and it doesn't go out of style.
I knew my old faithful could be revived. What I love most about this jacket is these complex seams along the back and shoulders — I would never tire of those. So I started with the sleeves, and simply rolled them up, for a more distressed style. What really stood out as an eye sore was the drab buttons; these pale green medium sized buttons just camouflaged with the fabric. I thought if I simply changed the buttons — something even I know how to do — the jacket would be refreshed.

How many times do we say it's all about the accessories? Victory Ford of Lipstick Jungle knows this. Even when her eyes are set on landing a tennis pro's clothing line, she adorns a LWD to perfection. Layered rhinestone necklaces, a strong shoe, and a pop of color clutch are key Victory accents. I'm sure her business partner-slash-ex Joe was dazzled but not enough for him to do the deed we've been waiting for. Alas, we have to anticipate another Friday night for the answer to that one; in the meantime, feast your eyes.

Old Navy knows we're suffering through hard times. To show compassion, the chain is hosting a huge sale. For one week only, you can save up to 50 percent on outerwear ranging from sherpa coats to metallic puffers. I'm thinking about this Wool-Blend Peacoat ($35, originally $70); it's cropped, gray — what's not to love?

Two blond beauties, two gorgeous Albert Ferretti gowns. Mischa first wore Alberta Ferretti's blue one-shoulder pleated gown from the Fall collection at the 2008 Cannes Film Festival in May. Normally she piles on jewels but she kept it clean with only a diamond necklace and a black clutch. Ivanka wore Ferretti's gown to a benefit at the New York Public Library. She left her neck bare but dressed up her earlobes with diamond earrings and her wrist with a diamond bracelet. A jeweled clutch added more dazzle. Both ladies rocked the red carpet but which look blows you away?
