I'm not one to wear typical going-out tops but this New York & Company Grecian Draped Tube Blouse ($31, originally $44) spoke to me for some reason. The shape is fresh, and the boatneck makes it the chicest party top I've seen. But this top is not all modest; the open side seams reveal a sexy tube top. It also comes in black, so get the color you like, and party like a goddess.

You probably heard that I'll be spending NYE in Thailand this year — I can't wait! Since Thailand is tropical paradise, I've been looking for an ethnic-inspired outfit to ring in the New Year. jds223 must have heard my call for help. She translated this colorful portrait into a vibrant New Year's Eve ensemble. The printed maxi dress would be perfect for fireworks on the beach and I love those bright clutches. Note how the gold accessories evoke a dash of bohemian elegance. I'll take one of each, please.
Ferragamo has gone green. In an effort to preserve the Earth, the luxury brand has created a line of eco-friendly handbags named Eco Ferragamo. What makes this collection special is that the bags are made from a nontoxic tanning technique, are lined in handwoven hemp, and use dyes from natural elements such as tree bark. The results, seen below, are luxurious, biodegradable, and water-resistant bags. The Eco Ferragamo collection ranges from small totes to maxi hobos made in hues of tobacco brown, lemon yellow, and grapefruit pink. The bags retail from $1,190 to $1,890 and will be available come February.
Nicole Richie put on her favorite Fall accessory — a slouchy black beanie — and shopped alongside her man Joel Madden.

Abbie Cornish hosted the launch of the Spring 2009 Calvin Klein Collection launch in Sydney, Australia wearing a light lilac dress from Calvin Klein. It's traditional to wear the designer at events like this, so it's a little surprising to see she accessorized with a Bottega Veneta clutch. Regardless, she looked stunning, and now, so can you.
