Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I had Monday off, so I gallivanted around town to drop off customer orders in Avon’s Pearly Hoop Earrings!

These are so much prettier in person–and incredibly lightweight!  I dig the fresh take on hoops manufactured out of a string of pearls, or the fresh take on pearls by stringing them into hoops…however you want to look at it.  ::wink::  If you’re one of my longtime blog followers, you already know that I rarely meet pearls I don’t like, and this was no rarity!  Beauty, beauty, beauty!

On Thursday, I laid it on thick in Avon’s Guiding Stars 4 in 1 Layered Necklace!

While I appreciate the intended look of this piece, but I struggled with it from the word go.  First, after unboxing it, I spent some precious morning minutes untangling the layers.  Once I got it on, it was selfie time, but every time I moved, the bar necklace layer shifted to hang askew.  After finally catching an acceptable selfie, it was time for the close up…so there was a whole ‘nother round of trying to get a shot of it hanging straight.  The shot posted below was the closest I got…and I left the house for work more than a little late.  Luckily, I was slammed at work all day, so when I did pop into the restroom, I didn’t have the time (or wherewithal) to check myself out in the mirror to see if the necklace needed to be futzed with, so I didn’t even think about it again until I took it off at the end of the day–and I managed to drop the dang thing on the floor after unhooking it…so I spent more precious minutes untangling it before I hung it up.  ::exasperated eye roll::

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

  1. It’s impressive that you didn’t just toss it against the wall (the necklace).
