Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Monday marked only five more days of work and then vacation!! I broke out Avon’s Grey Autumn Romance Pendant Necklace that I snagged on clearance to kick off the week—it was a rainy and very autumn-y day!  Check out my review of its pink counterpart.

Surprisingly, I like this grey one better than the pink one I’d bought (and won)–though I’m having a hard time quantifying exactly why, unless it’s just because I’m comparing it on its own as opposed to being within the larger Fall for Paris collection which, in all of my years of Avon, has been my most favorite one yet!  The original collection featured so many high quality pieces that this one didn’t seem to hold its own .  Instead of being an A student, it was a D student.  But now, I’d bump it up to a solid B.  The pendant has some heft to it without being considered a weapon, the chain doesn’t seem cheap or flimsy, and the colors in the drop pendant are unique–all great points!



I’m breaking longstanding fashion rules today in Avon’s Two-Tone Looped Necklace and Earring Set, then topping it off with their Kiss of Pink Hope Nourishing Lipstick in Raspberry Rosé!

This set is beautiful and interesting as it breaks all the traditional fashion rules by mixing metals!  Avon took a classic design and put a modern twist on it–and this is why I have such a large jewelry collection!  Unfortunately, I found the earrings frustrating because the two pieces are not welded together.  The gold circle has a post on its back, which threads through a tiny hole hanging down at the center of the silver circle.  Effectively, you can remove the silver circle altogether in order to wear the gold circle solo.  The idea behind it is okay, but the practicality of it isn’t.  I had a devil of a time getting the pieces to stay together in order to get the post through the hole in my ear–and then, the silver circle kept getting knocked askew all day (as you can see in this photo).  Why do they do this to me?!  My patience is tested far too often–and I fail every time.

The lipstick color is awful on me.  It’s a neon pink, even though it appears orange in the tube–and it only calms down in vibrancy a little bit with my trick on how to make any shade work for you.  I just don’t like wearing neon colors–in clothes or makeup, so this was a big miss for me.

It’s overcast and chilly this AM, so I’m layering my clothes and jewelry! Today’s look features Avon’s Droplets Short Necklace, Dream Charm Necklace, Freshwater Pearl Cluster Necklace, and the bar drop earrings from their Pearly Earring Pack!

Everything about this look was a win!  The droplets necklace worked great at the shortest chain length (I wish it could have cinched up into a choker length, but that’s just a me thing).  The charm necklace also worked great at the longest chain length (I wish it were an inch or so longer, but it still worked just fine for my purposes here.  The cluster necklace is seriously a new favorite piece–you can read its review here.  And the earrings are the best part!!  These earrings are delicate, lightweight, and oh so pretty–not to mention that they look a bit retro/mod–home run!!

Those are all of the past week’s selfies! What was your favorite and how would you have worn it?!

    Part of it is because I have yellow undertones in my skin—which messes with all the colors. Super irritating!


  3. I’m really liking that first look on you, it might be the green blazer and the jewelry. You look stunning in that green color my friend. But then again you look stunning in everything you wear! I love all the jewelry sets on this post! ❤️👍😎
