This one's for all you lovers out there; Victoria's Secret has just released its Valentine's Day, Vintage Victoria collection. Like the name, the line is filled with old-school glamour boasting a romantic selection of sultry bras, garters, and corsets. I fancy how the mix of lace, ruffles, and soft colors emit a simultaneously sultry and sweet attitude. Tickles your fancy? The collection is available online and in stores.

Please join me in welcoming Aelis to the Look Book. For her daring debut, she decided to go with a hipster, laid-back appeal. I like how the blazer and fedora add a sophisticated touch to her bohemian top. Fabulous.
Here's what she has on:
- Hat: H&M
- Blazer: Pepe Jeans
- Top: Lily
- Jeans: Stradivarius
- Flats: Unknown
Congrats to Aelis!
Everyone else, submit your looks and I might feature you on FabSugar!
February is a pretty crazy month for Fab. The awards shows and couture week were only a warm up for New York Fashion Week and the Oscars. So get ready for a wild ride of a month! If you can believe it, I'm usually too busy to shop, but, as always, have some coveted items. A Thakoon lightweight sweater, sweet jewelry, and this darling daring Marc Jacobs clutch all say the month of love to me.
Who doesn't love the farmers market? It has tons of fresh fruits and vegetables, not to mention this amazing spinach Bolani I'm obsessed with. You know me, I'm Fab, so I have to look cute even when shopping for groceries. Can you help me put together an ensemble that is as fresh as the produce?
I'll start you off with these Express Relaxed Jeans ($80) because they'll make me look nonchalantly cute.
Now, you can build outfits by creating a list of clothing items. We have everything you need to build outfits, and you can use your Fab Find bookmarks, too. This is an even better way to put together an entire outfit when you are completing your Fab Finding missions.

It's Grace Jones mania around here. Ever since I saw her on the cover of V Magazine's Spring issue, I re-fell in love with her brazen ways. The singer recently performed in London; she took the stage wearing nothing but a satin blazer, fishnet stockings, leather gloves, and a disc on her head. Not many people can pull this off without looking crazy, but if anyone can, it's Grace. What do you think — freaky or fabulous?
Think of all the different ways you can wear rockin' riding pants. You may push me back at first, but you can't deny its sleek equestrian roots. Take the preppy route and wear this sharp cut with a blouse, boots, and a blazer — think Serena Van Der Woodsen; or go modern and pair it with some killer heels and a casual tee. Speaking of Gossip Girl, Jessica Szohr was spotted donning a pair while out with hottie Ed Westwick.
Many girls shy away from pink for fear it will make them look prissy. Balmain's Spring '09 collection (left) and fashion addicted have proven the polar opposite — that pink can be kick ass, especially when paired with black. This pink-loving ShopStyle user tracked down the most amazing pieces on the web in various shades of the hue. Forget pretty in pink, get punky in pink.
If you're looking for that extra-special something to wear on Valentine's Day, I suggest you check out Myla's sexy sale. Right now, a large selection of its sultry offerings are marked up to 70 percent off. I love the color of this Silk and Lace Plunge Bra ($75, originally $250) seen left. Myla isn't for the faint-hearted; it's still pretty pricey but definitely worth the splurge.
