On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a multi-striped sweater. Her interactions with everyone in the Newman family lately is about as cringe-worthy as the Olivia Newton-John and John Travolta holiday music video "I Think You Might Like It." Sharon's apology, much like the Grease co-stars' reunion, was highly anticipated yet extremely disappointing. And "although here comes that magic/That spell of Christmas Eve/There's nothing you can do" to stop either train wreck from happening. And in both cases, the intended audiences were not very receptive. Perhaps if Sharon had crashed the party with a classic convertible full of gifts things may have gone better for her. Just so long as she didn't break out into an awkward dance routine in the middle of some field for absolutely no reason whatsoever.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a gold and black metallic stripe top. You know that little televised singing competition in which judges have to blindly listen to The Voice before judging a songbook by its cover? Well that methodology would come in handy here as Lauren and Michael seem to be embarrassingly oblivious to Fen and his fiendish ways. While missing opportunities to coach their son on how to be a nice person, the Baldwins don't seem to Cee Lo and behold how badly Fen is tormenting Jamie "Daly" in what can only be considered a "knockout round." Who knows which of the boys will eventually pull a Cassidy Pope and win the whole thing but as Christina Aguilera would belt, "So thanks for making me a fighter."
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a khaki fitted drape dress. Isn't it about time somebody give her a book deal? As the former editor of Restless Style, Phyllis can certainly write and there is no doubt she has an interesting story or two to tell. While a book from her wouldn't exactly be the badge of courage err honor it is to one of Bravo's Real Housewives like the Countess LuAnn or Princess Carole, she would definitely be the talk of the town. And if Phyllis would be worried about the wrath of the great and powerful Victor Newman, perhaps pulling a Princess Diana and finding her own Andrew Morton to secretly write her biography would do the trick. Hushed interviews make for a book chalk full of juicy tidbits. And let's face it, explosive sales would mean she would finally have enough time to learn how to use Google. Consequently, she would stop accidentally trying to impress future executive assistants.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a blue tweed jacket. She's so dolled up for a simple lunch with Nikki, one could easily believe she's on her way to the Kardashian Christmas card photo shoot. Poor Nikki turns as white as this year's "white party" theme when she recounts recent events to Katherine. While only time will tell if the Newmans will eventually grow to tolerate Sharon the way the Kardashians did with Scott, one can't help but feel as if Nikki would like nothing more than to photo-shop the bipolar blond out of her life for good. It's a shame this whole time Sharon won't stop begging for mercy.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a trim sweater. The fact that she's choosing to work on her marriage to Billy instead of running to Victor is about as surprising as LA Reid's departure from The X Factor. In other words, hardly worth an eyebrow raise. Of course, there were obvious signs in both cases; from the beginning it was clear the Demi/Britney/Khloe demographic would do better with somebody like Bieber as a judge (although nobody's getting their hopes up) while Victor has been trying to break up "Villy" since day one. Now LA can finally grab some downtime in LA while the Abbots are off to rekindle their romance in Jamaica. That being said, Victoria may want to trade in her sweaters for some sunscreen.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a blue satin blouse. As much as brothers Nick and Adam despise one another, they are growing more similar by the day. While Chelsea's husband is now the one busy vacillating between two women, her brother-in-law has taken it upon himself to disappoint dear old daddy when it comes to the family business. Another thing the two Newman men have in common? Protecting Sharon. Why don't they just go ahead and build a statue of her in the middle of town and get it over with already? That way, Chelsea can go back to her criminal roots and engage in some destruction of property. Or better yet, she can pull a Sharon and either burn it to the ground or steal it altogether. Hey, whatever works.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a camel v-neck sweater. Gwen Stefani, Vogue's January cover girl, opens up in the issue saying she feels guilty about being a working mom. Sharon, a fellow blond, has plenty of reasons to feel guilty as well. Yes, she was a working mother at one point too when she was busy running Victor's company into the ground but now, a certain fire is likely the thing causing her many sleepless nights. Since Restless Style seems to be tanking, Sharon may not be getting her magazine cover a la Gwen but in the end, taking responsibility for her wrongdoing is probably better left out of any publication. At least that's what any decent lawyer would advise...
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a v neck cardigan. As she goes along with Devon's plan to make their office a more casual atmosphere (why oh why?) one can't help but think of Norma Rae's plight. True, Lily and Co aren't exactly experiencing Dickensian working conditions but doesn't their dilemma also revolve around textiles? Then again, convincing Neil to loosen his tie every so often does what, exactly? Besides making him look a bit sloppy and unkempt, of course. Just because Lily can make "casual chic " look so effortless doesn't mean the rest of her colleagues can. Think of all those gifted ties in Genoa City this holiday season that will sadly remain unworn if this casual work environment becomes an actual "thing." Way to be a Fashion Grinch, Devon.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Summer wears a hooded toggle coat. She attempts to seek comfort from her father and Avery after an awkward run-in with Chelsea and Adam. The only problem is that in the process of helping, Nick indirectly points out that Summer deserves a place on the TLC show Freaky Eaters. Sure, she's not addicted to maple syrup, corn starch, or tartar sauce but pizza with pepperoni pieces that cannot touch? Pretty bizarre. Then again, considering she comes from a family in which her father is dating her aunt, her mother attempted to run over two people, and her grandfather married her ex-stepmother not once but twice, being a picky eater is a pretty normal problem in comparison, huh?
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a red bodycon long sleeve dress. Remember when Pippa Middleton wrote her party planning book "Celebrate" and critics slammed it by saying most of the tips were obvious? Well, enter parody Twitter account @pippatips with gems like, "Make lunchtimes more interesting by buying some food and eating it with your mouth" and "Do you like cake? Simply make one with the right ingredients or buy one ready made and eat it." Now if Avery can whip up a delicious meal in a thousand dollar dress, who says the Duchess of Cambridge's sister can't give Thomas Paine a run for his money with her book of common sense and then spoof herself in an editorial?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a gold sequin dress. As she celebrates the holidays bathed in a golden glow, one can't help but think of the Golden Globe nominations being announced today. Nikki knows Victor is "Breaking Bad" by inviting Adam and Chelsea to their "Homeland" but instead of being "Les Miserables", they turn the housewarming party into the "Best Exotic Marigold" evening imaginable. Meanwhile, "Downton Abbey" sends her bartender boyfriend Carmine over as a little surprise although thankfully, he does manage to keep his "Silver Linings Playbook" in check. Then Sharon crashes the "Moonrise Kingdom", there is a "Rise of the (Newman) Guardians", and you just know at that moment Nick wishes he was "Salmon Fishing in the Yemen." Pretty "Brave" of Sharon to attempt to make amends but she should know better than to think she can reason with "The Intouchables" during such "A Royal Affair. "

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a purple drape dress with an embellished waist. As she shows up at the holiday housewarming party looking to make amends, the Newman family immediately dismisses her attempts. Poor Sharon may want to think "outside the box" next time and climb in a shipping crate as penance a la Chandler Bing after he kissed Joe's girlfriend Kathy. Then again, this may only serve to perpetuate the "Sharon is crazy" hypothesis many in the family have unfairly deduced because unbeknownst to them, the blond is secretly battling bipolar disorder. In fact, many believe she got boxed up on alcohol before her arrival. It is doubtful the Newmans will forgive her as easily as Joey forgave Chandler but it is only a matter of time before Pandora's box is opened...
Here is the last part to this year's Gift Guide inspired by the citizens of Genoa City. And remember, everything is under $100! For parts one, two, and three of the gift guide, see here: http://theyoungandthestylish.onsugar.com/category/Gift-Guide
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a plum halter gown. Chelsea and Adam have officially called it quits- on Teen Mom 2 that is. Chelsea and Adam Newman, however, certainly have their fair share problems as well but with the way things are headed, they will likely follow their namesake's footsteps. The difference between the two couples? Tattoos, dogs, teengae pregnancy, and a promise ring. Oh, and leopard bedazzled Uggs instead of a beautiful $700 halter gown. Either way, Chelsea and Adam for the win, right?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a satin one shoulder dress. The fact she is wearing a one shoulder satin number isn't very surprising since she's worn this style in the past. One thing that probably would surprise Lauren, fashionista extraordinaire, is that snuggies have been around since the 1970s except back then, the unfortunate blanket bodysuit was known as The Bundler. (Absolutely appalling, I know.) While one would likely be hard-pressed to find anything remotely resembling the monstrosity inside of Fenmore's, a style connoisseur like Lauren would probably appreciate the fact that fashion is really cyclical. Still doesn't mean she would ever be caught dead in a Snuggie though, especially when she makes a pretty frock like this look oh so comfortable.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a white henley shirt with pockets. Is anyone still watching Gossip Girl as the show is nearing its end? Because unfortunately, the show is just like this shirt: good at one point but is now ruined. When did it start getting unwatchable? Well perhaps it was when Dan and Blair became an item. Or during the Lily, Rufus, Bart triangle. Maybe Eric van der Woodsen masquerading as Deaclan Porter in the Hamptons had something to do with it. While it is hard to say with Manhattan's elite, at least Sharon knows the exact moment her shirt was toast. That being said, Adam will likely come to the rescue, make a couple of calls, and get her the best dry cleaner in town. As for Gossip Girl and Co., you just know Dorota would simply turn the stained shirt into a cleaning rag. Or use it to wipe the tears of the five people still watching the show once it's put out of its misery.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Summer wears a blue velvet dress and drop earrings. Her awkward run-in with Adam at Chelsea at the housewarming party is about as newsworthy as Comcast adding the NBC peacock symbol to its logo. In other words, it appears to be something that could potentially get a lot of buzz but in reality, simply causes people to raise their eyebrows for a second and then move along with their daily lives. The reason for Comcast's underwhelming situation? The logo is something a twelve year old could have whipped up after ten minutes on Microsoft Paint. In Summer's case, Chelsea took the high road and didn't say much so there wasn't exactly any drama there. At least her dress made an otherwise dull situation a bit more interesting.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a gold sequin dress with an open draped back. Her relationship with Billy at the moment is a bit like The Today Show: flailing. While viewers wonder Where in the World is Matt Lauer since he is not particularly winning over viewers since Ann Curry's hasty departure, Billy has realized Jamaica may be the key to his problems with Victoria. It is uncertain whether Good Morning America and Victor will reign supreme in these two instances or whether each will recapture the magic and wow viewers the way this dress did.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray sweater. Remember the episode of The Big Bang Theory when Sheldon and Leonard's apartment is broken into and Sheldon decides to move to Montana? Upon his arrival he prompty gets mugged and returns to California almost immediately. Sharon, like Sheldon, takes things to the extreme like when she attempts to break things off with Adam for good or hides in a cabin while pretending to be out of town after setting the Ranch on fire. Now Sheldon has never burned a house down per se but there's no doubt he can launch into a lengthy explanation on the elements of fire.
Please note: I'm still searching for the exact one so check back but here's a similar sweater in the meantime.

On the December 4, 2012 episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a pair of silver hoop earrings. Enter the giveaway now to win a similar pair: the Rachel Roy "Organic Hoop" Earrings in Silver pictured below.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a red dress and gold necklace. Now that she's Working 9 to 5, one can't deny it's quite a way to make a living surrounded by her dad, brother, and husband. Luckily, Lily's boss would never just "use her mind" and not give her the proper credit. As Dolly Parton sings, she is "hardly just a step, on the boss man's ladder" and Neil would never even dream of taking her dreams away. More importantly, Neil would obviously recognize Lily's "service and devotion" and surely "give her a promotion." Forget "cup of ambition." How about a nice steaming mug of nepotism?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a gray metallic rib knit sweater and a spear necklace. As she worries about her son Fenmore and his relationship with bad-influence Summer, you can't help but admire her Momma Bear qualities. While Fen may not see her Molly Weasley potential ("Not My Daughter, You Bitch!") when it comes to protecting him, it is not hard to see she would do anything for him. That being said, notice how now that Lauren's not carrying a gun around town anymore, she has a spear hanging around her neck. Perfect for gouging Daisy's eyes out if she were to suddenly attack. Or worse yet, Sheila's because let's face it, we all know it's only a matter of time.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Leslie wears a silk blouse and wishbone necklace. Her relationship with Neil is a bit like Marcel Duchamp's art- a bit unconventional but somehow, it works. Leslie openly admits she's hesitant to accept Mr. Winters' job offer because she's afraid of a mutual attraction they have towards one another and their dating past. Ummm, what woman in her right mind would ever do that?! Way to play the game, dear. And similarly, what artist would ever dream of taking a porcelain urinal, titling it Fountain and passing it off as art? Just like you can't help but root for Leslie and Neil (Neslie? Leil?), you can't help but admire Duchamp's controversial piece and creativity.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a black dress. You know Dasher (Genevieve) and Dancer (Lily) and Prancer (Abby) and Vixen (Sharon), Comet (Chelsea) and Cupid (Lauren) and Donner (Chloe) and Blitzen (Nikki) but do you recall the one with the red nose hair that appalls? All of the other Genoa City women used to laugh and call her names, they never let poor Phyllis join in their catty games. Then one foggy summer's eve, Ronan came to say, "Phyllis with your hair so bright, won't you rock my world tonight?" Then she went and fought with Summer, and Christine shouted "You will see. Phyllis Summers Newman, you'll go down in history!"
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a brown top and a striped scarf. Now that she's back in Genoa City after her kidnapping ordeal, one can't help but wonder if she misses Miami. Not only does the city have better weather and Cuban food but she only missed Art Basel by a week or two. Talk about wrong place, wrong time, huh? Then again, Billy and Nick may have gotten confused thinking she was busy participating in "performance art." You know, playing the part of "determined woman ready to break free" like she does during her weekly dress rehearsals with her dear daddy Victor. That is, after she is done painting the town red.
