On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a black long sleeve top with pointelle stitch. After hearing Jack took over Newman Enterprises, being fired, learning her childhood home burning to the ground, and visiting her father in the hospital, it is safe to say she is having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day. Victoria is giving Judith Viorst's protagonist Alexander a run for his money; it is safe to say one can certainly write an award winning children's book about her awful adventures. Although she is down on her luck now, hopefully the next ninety days for her will be wonderful, marvelous, excellent, and terrific.
*Update 10/30/12: Found the original.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a gray cardigan with front pockets and ribbed sleeves. First she's a kleptomaniac, then she's a pyromaniac, now she's an amnesiac. What's next, will she regress to a full-out maniac? Sharon certainly has endured her share of troubles as of late but instead of making insane decisions, she should imagine her future (with Adam). You know, one filled with rainbows, puppy dogs, and unicorns where they live happily ever after and nobody burns their glorious castle to the ground.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Katherine wears a tweed blazer with leather trim and black contrast panels. With Halloween around the corner, one can't help but compare Victor and Jack's unending feud to that of Freddy vs. Jason. As Katherine attempts to counsel said Nightmare in Genoa City, it becomes quite apparent that everyone is on Team Victor as even Jack even admits as much upon a visit from the ghost of his late father. It is hard to predict who will ultimately win the final showdown as only time will tell which of the two monster moguls will have the last laugh.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Heather wears a pink boucle cropped jacket. As she comes to terms with the prosecution losing the case against Phyllis, one can't help but think of unjust court case outcomes, namely the one in To Kill A Mockingbird. Tom Robinson was convicted of raping Bob Ewell's daughter Mayella although all the evidence pointed towards his innocence. Similarly, it doesn't take a Scout to see that Phyllis is hardly a mockingbird, or rather a poor innocent creature merely bringing joy to the lives of others. The new judge may have thought she wouldn't say Boo to a goose but those in her life know they would likely find more lies and secrets in her past than there were gifts in Mr. Radley's tree.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Christine wears a sheer printed blouse. Let's see a show of hands - how many think she must have accidentally left her blazer in the car? Seriously, Christine sans blazer is like breathing without oxygen. Speaking of which, she may want to take a couple of deep breaths and go to her peaceful place now that Phyllis has managed to evade jail time for trying to kill her. Will the the former editor of Restless Style ever get the punishment she deserves? Cricket better not hold her breath on that one.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a belted blazer. Looks like this queen is between a rook and a hard place as she attempts to come up with a strategy for how to play this particular game of chess. Avery better check with Phyllis before she and Nick oFischerly mate. That is, if she wants to attempt to maintain a good relationship with her sister. After all, if Red is merely used as a pawn in her sister's game, there is going to be a lot of anger across the board.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Genevieve wears a wool tweed plaid cropped blazer. As she runs around town trying to find somebody to latch onto for financial reasons, she also attempts to find out who is behind the stalking and harassment her family is experiencing. Genevieve figuratively puts on her deerstalker hat and attempts a poor man's version of the third degree complete with begging, whining, and bribing. Hate to say it but even Nancy Drew was more mature when handling her teenage juvenile mysteries. Yes, Genevieve has changed plenty since her arrival in Genoa City (much like the famous flashlight-holding investigator has evolved throughout the series' creation) but going from a wealthy nut-job to a strapped-for-cash trickster isn't necessarily ideal, now is it? On the bright side, her fashion has remained on point the entire time.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a turquoise top and a red skirt. She is as much a part of Newman Enterprises as Diane von Furstenberg is of her self-titled clothing label. While Victoria's portrait may not be the one hanging on the wall of the office a la Andy Warhol inspired DVF art, she has definitely helped shape the Newman company into what it is today. Just imagine, if Furstenberg had been ousted from her own fashion business, the iconic wrap dress may have never been created. That being said, Jack should think long and hard about terminating Victoria. After all, who knows what potential projects he is prematurely impeding by letting her go. And no, it is not purely coincidental that she just so happens to be decked out in Diane von Furstenberg.
Thank you to the wardrobe department for helping me with this outfit.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a brown sweater. It truly is a miscarriage of justice that she loses Adam's baby in the car accident. Although some may say Karma is to blame for this particular tragedy, the two seem to have hit the breaks recently on their sinister ways and have done their fair share of repenting for their past misdeeds. Chelsea even gave the green light for the Abbots to raise baby John, proving people really can oil change. Only time will tell if when it comes to Summer, if she will go down the road of forgiveness.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a peach bow blouse. Isn't it ironic she is shocked by Jack's recent actions yet she could have prevented this whole mess if she would have turned down his proposal. It's just like The Little Mermaid: Nikki gave Jack his legs and in the end, he found his voice. Sure, the newly feisty Abbott was never singing underwater songs about being "Part of that (Victor's) World" but he was certainly thinking it, right? As for the Newmans, now that Jack finally has the reigns of the company, one can only feel sorry for those "Poor Unfortunate Souls."

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a black blazer and a beige pleated skirt. Remember that one time Brutus betrayed Caesar? Granted, Chloe's act of treason is insignificant compared to what is arguably one of the biggest acts of treachery in Shakespearean literature. Despite this, one can't help but notice several similarities between the two situations. For both respective parties, family plays a primary role as Chloe confesses to Kevin's brother Michael and Brutus betrays his uncle Caesar. Secondly, Portia persuades her husband Brutus to confide in her much like Chloe does of Kevin. The most notable similarity, however? Both traitors wear skirts. Gotta love that ancient Roman men's fashion, huh?

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a white long sleeve top. Wouldn't it have been hilarious if Elizabeth Banks and John Michael Higgins reprised their commentator roles from Pitch Perfect and narrated this scene? Face it, Phyllis is Becca and Ronan is Jesse and while the two "will they or won't they" couples duet, the potential for juicy accounts are endless. Speaking of which, remember when Banks' character in the film says, "Nothing makes a woman feel more like a girl than a man who brings..." Well, Ronan obviously responds with "a juicy burger and fries." Although Fat Amy doesn't want Aubrey to "put her down for cardio," you better believe Phyllis and Ronan will likely do a bit of their own.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a grey skirt suit. Does anyone else think she and Phyllis share some similarities with the Bronte sisters? Phyllis and Avery continuously fight over the same man, Nick. Perchance Charlotte and Emily fought over the same male pseudonym? Moreover, the nineteenth century sisters were close as a result of several tragic deaths in their family hence it was the death of Phyllis and Avery's father that ended up bringing the two together. Lastly, it is no secret that both sets of siblings antics have been said to warrant negative attention. At least Avery is comely in this suit.
Get the look with this suit.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Heather wears a burgundy suit. "Rumor Has It" if she would have won this case, she would have been celebrating a "Hometown Glory." Unfortunately, Heather was "Chasing Pavements" because the "One and Only" Phyllis got off without any sort of punishment. She may as well learn sooner rather than later that Red has a knack for "Setting Fire to the Rain." However, the next time this attorney goes "Rolling in the Deep" with any member of Daniel's family, she may want to step aside so that "He Won't Go." If not, she she's going to end up listening to a lot of Adele while dealing with her broken heart.
Here's a similar suit.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Victoria wears a blue peplum top. If she was one of the American Girl dolls, wouldn't she be Samantha Parkington from the Victorian era? Victoria is not only brunette like the historical plaything but was also raised in a wealthy family and learned sooner rather than later that a person's worth isn't measured by their money. A major difference between the two, however, is Samantha was an orphan. Though for all purposes, Victoria's ongoing feud with her father since 1904 and her mother's personal problems meant she pretty much raised herself. And to add a cherry to the ice cream parlor sundae? Victoria was a doll last year for Halloween.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lauren wears a silk blouse. Does anyone think she seemed unusually calm when Fenn went missing with Daisy and potentially Sheila Carter on the loose? Lauren may have popped an extra ambien the morning of Phyllis' trial because the gun-wielding version of herself would have had her son's picture on the side of every milk carton within hours. And what about Gloria's infamous "Missing T-shirts"? Fenn is her grandson, after all. Plus, you just know she has the phone number to that t-shirt printing company on speed dial.
Here is a similar top.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a navy dress. She gets off scot-free? About as predictable as the demise of Jef and Emily's engagement. And Ben and Courtney's. As for Christine's anger, it probably mirrors Ben's shock upon seeing Arie and his ex-fiance together making out in less than the time it takes for a rose to lose its petals atop the Matterhorn. In her navy dress, Phyllis is definitely taking a page out of Courtney's book. You know, the one titled, "Winning." (P.S. For those who have absolutely no idea what I just said, I take it you don't watch The Bachelor?)
Thanks to the wardrobe department for ID'ing this dress. It is the Cacharel Wool and Silk Off-the-shoulder dress from Saks Fifth Avenue pictured below. Unfortunately, the dress is no longer available from when I first posted it on Twitter. (Which is why you should follow @theyoungstylish)
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chloe wears a black peplum top with an open back. The moral of the story is that if she was Mary Lennox, the novel may have been called The Not So Secret Garden. Think about it, Chloe, like Mary, can be spoiled, rude, and can have quite the temper. Moreover, just as the garden in the book symbolizes the near destruction of a family, Chloe blabbing Kevin's secrets to his District Attorney brother-in-law may be doing just the same. Hopefully,in the end, she doesn't end up how Mary started out. You know, alone.
Thanks to the Y&R Wardrobe department for ID'ing this top. It is from H&M and is pictured below.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Chelsea wears a navy silk dress. It is no secret she has a lot of free time on her hands these days. Chelsea should spend that time studying the video of that "One Time" Justin Bieber vomited on stage because now that she has "Somebody to Love" and another "Baby" on the way, is there really any better way to get prepared? Think about it, babies get sick at unexpected times and in the most inconvenient places. Just as long as she never ruins any of her pretty dresses, things will turn out fine. Well, "Never Say Never."
*Update 10/20/12: Wardrobe has informed me that Chelsea's leaf necklace is from a store called "Lustre" in the Los Angeles "Farmer's Market."

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a blue dress. Is anyone else hoping she goes all "Amanda Clark" on Sharon now that Victor has been found? There is no doubt Nikki wants Revenge after what the wretch did to Newman Enterprises; Sharon had no trouble putting the "fun" in the Mustache's "funeral." Hey, she even has her supporting cast right alongside her: spoiled little bratty Charlotte? Abby. Computer tech wiz Nolan? Kevin. A mother like Victoria who will go to any lengths to protect her son? Phyllis. Now, we'll have to swap the luxurious Hamptons setting for a piece of Genoa City in the process but that's doable. Especially if the clothes are continually up to par.
Unfortunately, the dress does not seem to be available any longer in blue but here it is in magenta. Thank you to Melody Thomas Scott on Twitter and Sheilla on Facebook for ID'ing this dress.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sofia is wearing a tweed leather trim jacket. Remember that part in The Hunger Games when Katniss drops the tracker jacker nest on all the Careers and Rue watches from a nearby tree? (If not, go read the book. Like yesterday.) Well, someone in the writers' room is a fan because minus the whole slaughter scene, it's essentially the same thing here. Think about it, Sharon is Katniss essentially pulling the trigger with the SEC; the Securities and Exchange Commission is the nest of tracker jackers ready to do the damage; Tucker is a befuddled Career not expecting the attack; and Sofia mindfully watches from afar a la Rue. As for Sofia's jacket? May the odds be ever in your favor trying to track it down because it appears to be sold out.
She appears to be wearing the Sandro Vertige leather trim tweed jacket. It retailed for $515.00 and is pictured below but is no longer available.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Abby wears a blazer with plaid trim. When she has the audacity to give Summer advice, one can't help but feel that Dumb is giving Dumber a patronizing and very hypocritical lecture. While some may say "Cool Aunt Abby" counseling her niece is a nice bonding activity, in reality it is like the blind is leading the blind. Unless Summer wants to learn how to sue her father for half a billion dollars or better yet, the art of faking her own kidnapping, she should look elsewhere for input. In conclusion, the whole conversation with the exception of Abby's jacket, is just a travesty of sorts.

on this episode of the young and the restless, sharon wears a beige double-breasted jacket. if she was a poet, she would likely be e.e. cummings as both have unconventional ways of going about life and aren't afraid to tackle controversial subject matters headfirst. cummings marched to the beat of his own drum choosing to forgo capitalization in his work. similarly, sharon has a knack for fighting common sense, choosing to bypass all logic. if anything, sharon can look to cummings for a bit of advice, "it takes courage to grow up and be who you really are." at least she has the wardrobe part down.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Phyllis wears a black dress with a purple leaf design. People are always comparing themselves or others to famous actors and quoting movie lines. Well what about using movie titles to summarize life? For example, a film symbolizing Phyllis' life presently would be "Unfaithful." Ronan's currently taking "Liar, Liar" to heart. Sharon represents "How to Lose Friends and Alienate People" wonderfully. Unfortunately for Nick, "Clueless" comes to mind. That being said, Phyllis was anything but when she chose this beautiful dress.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Leslie wears a tie neck print blouse. This top just screams "fall" doesn't it? The colors call to mind changing leaves, pumpkin spiced lattes, and the harvest. While Leslie no doubt is dressing for the season, perhaps she is sending dear Sharon a subliminal message with her choice of wardrobe. The idiom "how the mighty have fallen" is particularly appropriate in this instance for more reasons than one. And you just know this lawyer is going to be grinning like a jack-o'-lantern after Sharon pays her astronomical fees because her brand of crazy doesn't come cheap.
