Hautelinks - your weekly source for the best of the web

It's a short Hautelinks list this week because, let's face it: with the excitement of winter break, plus all that's going on for the holidays, most of us haven't had much time to spend online! That said, if you need a break from your vacation already (ah, nothing like family bonding), here are some links to help you pass the time:

*

Such a great project for winter break: DIY Doo.Ri's embellished tights!

*

Wow! The "fashion hacker" was finally caught - apparently this guy got in to Conde Nast's file system and downloaded hundreds of internal documents, including unreleased Vogue covers! Crazy.

*

Hopefully you've already done your holiday shopping, but if you're living on the edge and waiting 'til the very last second, Refinery 29 has a great list of last-minute gift ideas.

*

Also from R29, 4 Foolproof Winter Beauty Secrets to keep you looking fabulous through the most bitter months.

*

We loved the NYT's profile on The Man Repeller!

*

Need to shop for someone that's too cool for school but don't know where to start? Racked is here to help, with 6 gifts for the hipster in your life.

*

Could you do the no mirror challenge? It's only five days, but still - it sounds intense.

*

Along those same lines, The Wardrobe Rehab Project is such a cool concept, especially the "unnecessary purchases of the month" posts.

*

Is Modcloth secretly ripping you off? Say it ain't so! We <3 us some Modcloth. This makes us sad.

*

Take a look back at the best dressed people of 2010, as picked by ELLE.

*

What better time than the holidays for a little nostalgia? Things '90s Kids Realize will take you back.

*

These accessories look good enough to eat. Even cooler? They're not photoshopped - someone really made them.

*

Stylelist reveals what bloggers wish for during the holiday season.

*

We just discovered the blog PennyChic, and we're in love! They profile real-life people wearing incredibly affordable ensembles. Like, under $50 affordable. Amaze.

*

Ever stopped to think about how silly some of our techno gadget names are? (Hello, iPad!) If so, this video will make you smile.

*

Need some fashion inspiration now that you're back in your home town? This slideshow of off-duty models should do the trick.

That's all for now! As always, link up anything else awesome you found this week with a comment. Hope you're all having a fabulous winter break so far!
