“I always look forward Avon’s Iconic offerings—their vintage vibe is totally my jam!  This time around, they released a few items that make a big splash!  

I used the Pearly Ribbon Brooch to help create a “soft” waistline on my dress by gathering some of the excess material to nip in one side.  Brooches are the quintessential retro accessory, but they are also the most flexible—you can wear them on hats, lapels, scarves, handbags, in your hair…the…
