Thank you Michelle for the ID on the blouse!
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a teal dress. Victor telling her to "let things go" with Sharon is like telling Taylor Swift to forgo buying a mansion in the vicinity of her latest boyfriend's house. Speaking of homes, sure Nikki has every right to be peeved that Sharon burned hers to the ground but can't she just follow Taylor's example ie move on and buy a new one? Simple, easy, done. Almost like every one of the country singer's "swift" relationships, right? Now we just have to wait for the sad ballad on her next album about the flooded basements, broken heater, and terrible termite problems. You've got to admit, this method sounds a whole lot easier than secretly playing detective in hopes to throw your ex-daughter-in-law in prison for good.
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, Nikki wears a black dress with an asymmetric neckline. Anyone think her resemblance to Mary Todd Lincoln is uncanny? Think about it, Nikki is Genoa City's "First Lady" given her status as President Victor's main squeeze and she was also married to Jack, a man who was shot. It is no secret Nikki has loved both Jack and Victor, bitter business rivals while Mary was courted by Abe as well as Stephan Douglas, who eventually became political rivals. (Lincoln-Douglas debates, anyone?) Lastly, Lincoln's wife is said to have suffered from severe mood swings which just so happen to resemble Nikki's behavior as of late; she seems to go from sobbing uncontrollably over the ranch to happily announcing her engagement to cattily attacking Sharon all in a matter of minutes. Here's to hoping she'll paint the Newman Ranch white once the renovations get underway.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a purple velvet jacket. Perhaps her wardrobe is an indication of what kind of cake she will be enjoying on her wedding day to Victor: red velvet. And hopefully, Nikki will take viewers behind the velvet rope for the entire wedding planning process and Newman Ranch redecorating. Who knows, if she plans winter nuptials, perhaps her wedding dress may even be made of, you guessed it, velvet.
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, 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, Nikki wears a brown paisley printed blouse. As she prepares Faith's birthday gift, one wonders how the poor little girl has even managed to turn out remotely normal. Throughout the span of her short life, her ex-step-father Adam kidnapped her when she was a baby and she was raised by Ashley for several months while her parents grieved for her. Upon learning the truth, her mother Sharon proceeds to land in jail, manages to escape, fakes her own death, and is eventually found alive. Her step-mother Phyllis is currently being accused of attempted murder and her grandmother Nikki was recently involved in a marriage shorter than Kim Kardashian's. Lastly, her mother Sharon married her grandfather Victor not once but twice in the last year making for one messed up family tree and likely resulting in one very confused little girl. If anyone should have a Burn Book, it's Faith. Suri Cruise can at least take comfort in her Chanel.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a black dress. If she were to one day write a memoir, this would be the part were there would be a dozen or so blank pages to symbolize her heart-wrenching grief. Thank you, Stephenie Meyer, for phoning it in with "New Moon" to avoid writing about grief or emotion. Twilight fans may think Edward breaking up with Bella was just about the most devastating thing in the world but Nikki without Victor? There's a love story no vampire romance series will ever live up to.

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a colorblock dress and black earrings. Now that she thinks Victor is six feet under, she is likely to go through the seven stages of grief. The question is, in which of these stages will Nikki realize her ex-husband is in fact alive and get to cloud nine. She will probably put two and two together at the eleventh hour after giving Billy the third degree. This will mean the Newman family will then be at sixes and sevens, Tucker will be back to square one, and the media will be covering the story by the dozen. And let's face it, it will only be a matter of time before Victor does another number on everyone in Genoa City.

(I'm pretty sure the dress is by Phillip Lim pictured below but in a different colorway but I'm trying to confirm. It also looks very similar to this Victoria Beckham dress. If anyone knows, please share!)

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a coral dress. As she goes on her seemingly never-ending goose chase to find Victor, her marriage to Jack falls apart. Nikki should know by now that it is impossible to kill two birds with one stone, especially since the two men in her life are arch enemies. Instead, she decides to follow her ex's lead and fly the coup, leaving her new husband only hours after getting hitched. What's good for the goose is good for the gander, right? That is, unless she doesn't find Victor and then what will she be left with? A big old goose egg. Hopefully this marriage is her swan's song and once she tracks Victor down, she'll stay with him for good.
On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a button down blouse with leather cuffs. What does she have in common with the likes of Rene Zellweger, Pamela Anderson, and Britney Spears? Besides being household names, all these blond women have had the privilege of having very short-lived marriages. (By the looks of it, Sharon will likely be joining this list in no time.) Let's face it, Nikki has likely taken many trips that have lasted longer than her nuptials to Jack. Namely, the trip she is currently on looking high and low for her ex-husband Victor. Well, if she's going to insist on acting like a celebrity, she may as well dress like one. And she certainly doesn't disappoint in this star of a blouse.
Thank you Neelam, Lyndsey, and Gail for finding this top and sharing the information!

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a red paisley printed shirt. If one were to ever utter her name and Carrie Bradshaw's name from Sex and the City in the same sentence, it would likely be for their ability to "turn a trick." Nikki, however, has managed to make the show's infamous post-it breakup scene look like a stroll in Central Park on a sunny day. Imagine getting a breakup text ending your nuptials before the ink on your marriage certificate has even dried only to find out the message was sent by your new husband's jealous ex-wife. That even somehow makes Big's breakup text to Carrie calling off their wedding while he was pulling up the ceremony look reasonably tolerable. Well, maybe not. Either way, time for some Cosmos and retail therapy!

On this episode of The Young and the Restless, Nikki wears a white cardigan and a pave disc pendant necklace. You know how they say sharks are attracted to shiny objects? (Well, they do. Thanks, National Geographic.) Nikki must realize one way to track down Victor, known to be called a shark on occasion, is by wearing the biggest shiniest pendant she could find. Imagine when the press finds out Sharon's new husband is missing. Talk about a feeding frenzy.
She appears to be wearing the Sydney Evan Large White-Gold & Diamond Disc Necklace pictured below.
As for her cardigan, it is similar to this one.

On the August 3, 2012 episode of The Young and the Restless, both Sharon and Nikki get married. While these blushing brides are both wearing white wedding dresses, they each have opted for non-traditional looks. This is a wise choice seeing as these Newman women have already been married half a dozen times. Each. Talk about a reason to blush! While Nikki's ceremony definitely wins "Most Inspiring" due to Jack standing up from his wheelchair, Sharon's service wins "Most Creative" with Victor's makeshift ring. Now the real question is, who wins best dressed?
*Update 8/12/12: Thanks to the show's wardrobe department for helping me track down Sharon's dress and clutch. Her dress is by Theyskens' Theory and retails for $695.00 but is no longer available. As for her bag, it is by Aldo and can be found here for $36.00
