Check out our first episode of Get Ready With Me with Tess Christine! This show is all about sharing style inspiration when you have a closet full of clothes "but nothing to wear." In this episode, we're getting ready for a day of shopping on a Spring weekend. Check out more of our POPSUGAR Girls' Guide videos on YouTube for more great style inspiration.
It was the night before Christmas (and Hanukkah!) and all through the FabSugar house, Allison McNamara was stirring, wrapping jewelry, totes, jackets, even a blouse! Must-have handbags were hung by the chimney with care, statement necklaces adorned the reindeer, and those snazzy sweaters were dancing round the FabSugar lair. The FabSugar ladies present their wish list, so take a peek at our video—it's not to be missed!
>> We can't slip into a pair of breezy sandals or peep-toe booties for another (tortuous) couple of months, but there's no harm in checking out what's available so when the weather's ready, we're ready, too. Our favorite pairs — ranging from Alaia stitched sandals to Miu Miu striped ballet flats — are sure to take you from a freezing 24 degrees to the high 70s in no time at all (we hope). The Groundhog did predict an early Spring, after all.

>> Mary-Kate and Ashley Olsen Originally Considered Hiring Someone to Front Their Design Ventures —It's not unheard of for someone to lend their name and face to a brand actually designed by someone behind-the-scenes, but last night, Ashley Olsen revealed that at the start of their design ventures (The Row, Elizabeth & James) she and sister Mary-Kate considered doing the exact opposite to downplay their attachment: “We almost tried to find a front person for a while, so we could just kind of be behind it, but it’s worked out.” She also hinted that they would love to tackle home furnishings in the future.

Forget the beach, go spend a day at the peach! It's so lulling to be on the softer side of things, as evidenced by French actress Marion Cotillard. Even despite the bright red backdrop, her scaly peach Jean Paul Gaultier manages to paint a serene picture.
This whispering hue is great for those who want to experiment with pastels but don't want to a) look like a child and b) look like they're going to church on Easter Sunday. Join me in adopting this mature color for Spring!
I have to admit: February is a tough month for me. Winter has been around a while, I'm still broke from the holidays and my jeans are starting to tighten. Woe is me! At least I have New York Fashion Week and awards shows to help the month fly by. Most of this month's most wanted are transitional or fun little things. This Elizabeth & James Dart Top ($295) is the perfect poppy color to keep my spirits high. Check out the rest of my most wanted . . .
After a brief hiatus, Cameron Diaz is back in the public eye. Yay! While shopping with friends in NYC, the svelte actress showed the world her new oversized Fendi bag, Francesca Romana Diana pinkie ring, and Winter-white coat. The rest of her look — the Loeffler Randall boots, skinny jeans, brown scarf — is quintessentially Cameron, and that's why we love her; she layers simple pieces and makes them Fab.
