It’s not always possible to buy a whole new wardrobe just for the holiday season, but of course you want to look fancy and festive at all the parties and events the next month has to offer. The solution? Accessories. This satin corset belt, for example. It’s not only gorgeous, it’s sexy and eye-catching enough to take a simple dress from “basic” to “holiday party ready.” You could also layer it over a blouse with slacks or even one of these fabulous jumpsuits. Bonus: it’s made to order in your exact waist size so it’s a great choice for any body type. [$30, Etsy]
Taylor Swift has never been afraid of wearing red, but I don’t think I’ve ever seen her in this color red — and it looks amazing on her.

Mostly because their existence forces me to use the word “shootie” in a sentence, but that’s not really Taylor’s fault. Otherwise, well played, girl! [Photos: Getty]

“Giant hair bows” were recently featured on a Huffington Post list of fashion trends guys hate, which made me love them even more than I already did. This loose, half updo would be totally man-friendly on its own, but once you add the big ass bow, it’s like, “Sorry dudes, I do my hair to please me (and also my 6-year-old niece).” Plus, as The Cut pointed out, that list can be used like a guide of What To Wear To Get Basic Bros To Leave You Alone. Yet another reason to embrace the big ass bow.
It’s the age old problem every single woman faces throughout her shoe-filled life: the pain and discomfort associated with wearing fabulous heels. Many of us (guilty, here) have throughout the years adopted a “grin and bear it” attitude, choosing our love for stylish shoes over our desire to be comfortable.

Want to add a little lift to your gait but not lose your footing traversing through the rainy and snowy weather to come this winter? Wedge boots are the answer!

This Sunday, Sasha Obama wore this ASOS unicorn sweater to a basketball game, and the internet promptly exploded shortly afterward.

Ladies and gentlemen, behold the world’s first champagne vending machine, which has been unveiled at Selfridge’s department store in London. The shiny dream machine uses a golden robotic arm to gently dispense jewel-encrusted mini bottles of Moet & Chandon champagne for $30 a pop, and I want one of these in my house RIGHT NOW. I know what you’re thinking: But Winona, couldn’t you just fill your fridge with champagne and call it a champagne vending machine? Well… that’s an excellent point. Now if you’ll excuse me, I have to go buy 100 mini bottles of champagne, some jewels, and a hot glue gun. Cheers! [Daily Mail]
