On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Sharon wears a long sleeve sweater top with an asymmetric hem. One could argue that 2012 was the year of unusual collaborations: Neiman Marcus and Target, Altuzarra for J.Crew, Rodarte and Starbucks, Adam and Chelsea. As the year comes to a close, however, these combinations that did not exactly live up to the hype or in some cases, made absolutely no sense, can quietly go their separate ways. Whether it be Target slashing prices to move that Neiman-like merchandise or Adam kissing Sharon and subsequently divorcing Chelsea, something's gotta give. Here's to hoping 2013 makes a bit more sense!

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Avery wears a drape dress. There is no doubt fashion and food make a lovely pair. In fact, fashionista.com has pointed out that the duo are having a bit of a love affair right now a la Nick and Avery. Jourdan Dunn has her own cooking show, Karlie Kloss has launched a line of cookies, a Cesar Casier has a cookbook that is flying off the shelves. And of course, one cannot forget the CFDA's cookbook full of designers' best recipes. Now Avery may be keeping her cooking for friends and family only (okay, mainly Nick) but Is it any wonder the color of her dress is listed as "grape?"
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Gloria wears a snakeskin printed jacket. When she decided not to invest in Chloe and Chelsea's fashion venture, one couldn't help but applaud her restraint and smart business sense. Then, Gloria has to go side with Jeffrey and invest in a race horse. (Who knew he secretly was a bronie?) For all purposes, they may as well name the animal Twilight Sparkle because their little pony is going to bring anything but "elements of harmony" to their relationships let alone friendships. Sure, the trio will share in numerous juvenile adventures until their magical money well runs dry but admit it, right about now Gloworm is looking like a "cutie mark."
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Lily wears a black dress and a burgundy blazer. Was Neil's decision to hire Leslie's brother, who undoubtedly has a thing for his happily married daughter, a smart idea? Especially when Tyler's guerrilla marketing campaign with the eye (Gatsby, anyone?) enraged Jack so. Isn't this similar to Instagram's controversial new terms of service? Considering the app's changes caused just about everyone and their mother to panic, one could argue it was not the company's best move. And as for Jabot, it's almost as if Tyler suggested using a consumer's snapshot in their new ad. Whether one is picturing Lily and Leslie's brother together down the road or themselves finding and using a new photo app, one thing is clear: change isn't necessarily always a good thing.
