Jessica Bennett Pink Patent Clutch

During the Fall 2009 fashion shows, models blazed down the runway in a rainbow of neon shades at Marc Jacobs and Michael Kors, but it's the pink-highlighter hue that works on all skin tones. If you don't want to splurge on a hot-pink coat or dress, one or two acid-bright accessories work just fine. With a color this vibrant, a little dab will do. The sweet-as-candy color gets a neon makeover and a perfect accessory is Jessica Bennett's simply sexy dinner party purse in hot pink. The patent leather is simple but packs a big punch with its high sheen. The square shape with sexy curved corners lets this flirtatious handbag easily transform into cute and casual day wear but the graphic, retro-style gold hardware means it looks good enough for a party. With a hot pink outer and contrasting lemony gold satin-style lining, you are bound to look great and make a high impact with this adorable purse.

Manolo Blahnik's Glamorous Tough Motorcycle-Inspired Studded-Strap Boot

Manolo Blahnik's Studded-Strap Boot, inspired by motorcycle fashion, is made from black distressed leather and looks both tough and chic at the same time. Combining gold and black on a boot undeniably brings rocker-edge glam but what actually makes this boot look tough is the antiqued gold-tone metal studded strap that wraps around the shaft with a large square buckle. Even though this boot embodies rocker chic glamour, it still exudes a hint of femininity with the pointed toe.

Wearing this Manolo Blahnik Studded-Strap Boot will cost you about $1,595 at Neiman Marcus but, when you wear them over your denims with a leather jacket, you will definitely pull off a glamorous tough-chic facade.

Look-at-me gloves: Fall 2009 fashion accessory trend

It's time to give love to the glove! Patricia Field, the costume designer for Confessions of a Shopaholic and Sex and the City, once said that she has had a lifelong obsession with gloves and that they are her go-to accessory for instant ladylike elegance. The gloves for Fall 2009 aren't the kind that just keep you warm and then get shoved into your pocket; these gloves beg to be noticed. Gloves themselves are a hot trend this season and designers paid lots of attention to them. Gloves can be incorporated into many outfits and certainly add sophistication and glamour to them.

So, what are going to be the top fashionable gloves this fall and winter?

1. Leather gloves. It should be no surprise that classic leather gloves will be fashionable this fall because leather gloves are always in style.

There are lots of designs to chose from including the long, over-the-elbow clinging gloves like Zac Posen showed as well as elbow-length gloves, gloves in all different colors, fingerless gloves, tight gloves or loose-fitting gloves. Derek Lam suggested reptile leather with his gloves if that is the look that interests you.

Again lots of colors and designs will give you a great opportunity to find the right pair. You can chose from a classic pair like the Ralph Lauren gloves or you can chose the more street-like and casual styles of Carolina Herrera and Derek Lam.

Hodad's, Ocean Beach, CA - Best bacon cheeseburger as voted by Guy Fieri and CNN

Located on a San Diego beachside, Hodad's offers some of the West Coast's biggest hamburgers. According to Forbes Traveler, the most popular menu item, the double, weighs in at well over half a pound and is piled with lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayonnaise, mustard and ketchup. Hodad's famously messy burgers come wrapped in wax paper, which owner Mike Hardin half-jokingly calls a "burger trough." Do as the locals do and order a double bacon cheeseburger with fries and a shake. Lesser appetites can order an "unburger"--all of the toppings, none of the burger.

In April 2009, CNN named Hodad's one of the "five tasty burger joints worth visiting" and Hodad's has also been featured on the Food Network, appearing on Guy Fieri's Diners, Drive-ins and Dives in August 2008 and on The Best Thing I Ever Ate - Bacon in June 2009.

"They have a burger where they make a bacon patty that goes on top of the burger that is just ridiculous," said Fieri. It's his belief that all ingredients in a burger must co-exist and compliment one another for a great experience.
