Gnome shell changed with latest Fedora 19 update.

I updated my fedora and the Gnome shell looks different. I want the old one back but cannot find any settings in the tweak tool to do this. How can I revert the look back to the way it was?

New Gnome shell has a white bar on the top and a white bar on the bottom (like classic gnome 2.0 bar with all windows).

edit:

I did not change any shell themes. Although, I did do a "yum autoremove". Did I accidentally remove anything?

I do not want the classic mode. I did not enable the classic mode. I want the normal mode. How can I get the normal mode back?
