Omiru Poll Results: Shorts as Eveningwear is OUT!

Juicy Couture Velvet Shorts - $198

We asked: Are Shorts as Eveningwear In or Out?

You said: Totally Out! 68% voted Shorts as Eveningwear Out, while only 18% cast their ballot towards "In." And the remaining 14% believe this trend is On the Way Out.

Omiru’s take: We agree wholeheartedly. While this look may appear appealing on the runway, it leaves much to be desired off the catwalk. And you can forget about wearing Shorts as Eveningwear at the Office Holiday Party! We urge you to leave your shorts where they belong: hanging in your closet until Spring.

Style Trends. How To Layer Successfully. Tricks to Looking Slim & Polished

Where did sexiness go? Layering was all the rage on the Fall '06 fashion runways. Marc Jacobs piled on layers of plaid flannel, oversized knits, leg warmers and giant wool coats.

Caplet “it” - Save & Splurge

I have to credit Off the Rack for a great find. They featured Rachel Bilton looking adorable int this Theory Caplet. Ah, Theory. Theory dishes out some of the best suits and adult clothes. That instant I am woman feeling.

But to justify $395 for a trendy piece - well that’s still hard to do. But here’s a substitute at heck of a deal. I’m impressed at the budgetista offering at Forever 21 for $30.

H&M - GIft of the Day - Lingerie?

Is lingerie the next perfume? It seems like while every celebrity and their mom are out putting perfume scents together, every retail store is out adding lingerie to their fruitful clothing line. Alls I know is, if H&M does lingerie like they do clothes, there will be some really fab options out there for the bourgeois-chic, comme moi. Though...I do have to admit that I haven't really let anything but Victoria Secret into my dresser in years...decades maybe even...ok...that's not accurate, but a really long time.

Is Pink The New Blonde? Rachel McAdams Thinks So

We've seen Rachel McAdams do chameleon-like transformations into a brunette in The Family Stone, a blonde in Mean Girls and a redhead in The Notebook. But at a recent event with Al Gore, she appeared with an even more unusual hair color -- hot pink! As the actress is not currently filming, we can only assume that the punkish fuschia streaks are just for fun. (Wonder if boyfriend Ryan Gosling digs them too?) Tell us: What do you think of Rachel's punkish pink hair? Would you dye your hair that color?
