Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Last Saturday we headed out to a friend’s BBQ and I busted out a few of my Avon demos that weren’t for sale yet, but NOW they are! I started out with the Valeri Beaded Peasant Top from their New Neutral Collection – a fashion capsule where you can mix and match pieces. I love the top, but YOU may want to wear a cami under the tunic as it is on the sheer side – not a problem with indoor lighting…though a bit more challenging in full sunlight at a BBQ. *cough*

I topped the tunic off with Avon’s Cali Deco Pendant Necklace and Cali Deco Earrings – both gorgeous pieces that give off a modern retro vibe! I double looped the long necklace to achieve the length I needed for the top…not only did it achieve my end goal, but it also made it appear as though it’s a layered necklace – a super hot trend right now!

How did you tackle Monday?  I dazzled them – that’s how I put my day in the books!  I plopped Avon’s Classic Sparkle Drop Earrings in my ears and hit the ground running leaving sparkle in my wake!  It’s tough to find fault with any classic style of jewelry – as they are simply elegant.

Tuesday I checked out Avon’s super duper cute Jasmine Grommet Tie Top from The New Neutrals Collection! It seemed to run a bit on the big side – I’d bought a size S (4-6), which I am, but it was a bit roomy so that the tie through the grommet didn’t appear to cinch up an extra couple of inches at the waist like it was supposed to.  It’s apparently a common complaint as I’ve gotten additional feedback from other reps to size this particular top down.

But wait, that’s not all! I paired the top with Avon’s Modern Metals Long Necklace and Modern Metals Hoop Earrings! The earrings were outside of my usual picks as I tend to think of large hoops as geared to a younger crowd…but I don’t think I look like I’m trying too hard. At least I hope not…

On Wednesday I kept the hoop trend going this week with Avon’s Pacific Paradise Hoop Earrings! The size of THESE hoops were definitely in my comfort zone! They were much lighter than I anticipated them being and they didn’t tinkle on my ears – light and quiet, exactly how I prefer my earrings!

Finally, on Thursday I complained that the heat in Portland, Oregon was a bit much for my taste, but it sure looked like paradise here, so I sported Avon’s Pacific Paradise Necklace and Pacific Paradise Drop Earrings – even if the “paradise” is in name only! These are really pretty simulated moonstone pieces that look antique – they are bulkier and heavier in person than I thought they’d be…not at all dainty. I probably should have broken them up to wear with different outfits, but I was running late that AM and didn’t have the time to get creative.
