All tied up…in Avon’s Tie Front V-Neck Dress! First things first: the fucshia color of this is a vibrant breath of fresh air that would flatter anyone! While not quite a jewel tone, it’s pretty darned close, and jewel tones look great on all skin tones. The material is soft, comfy, and stretchy–similar to t-shirt material. The sleeveless v-neck top is terrific, and the belt/tie is adorable. However, there are a couple of things I wish were different. First, the empire-ish waist is just wrong, It’s kind of a hybrid of an (almost) empire waist in front, and more of a traditional waist in the back. The design probably works great on someone who isn’t curvy, but it gave me a strange shape, not really emphasizing the right lines and making both my waist and my bust look weird…and I wasn’t in love with it. The other thing that I wasn’t crazy about was the skirt. It’s so fitted on top, then gathered in the middle, which leaves lots of extra material in the skirt…and since the waistline is strangely designed, it ends up looking shapeless and unstructured. I also think the length of the skirt is too long, which is totally fixable, but that I won’t spend the time or money correcting since I’m not crazy about the bust/waistline, which can’t be corrected. The very top portion of this dress is a huge win…until you get to the top of the waist line, then you lose me–check it out for yourself and scroll/cover the bottom portion of the dress just below my bust line, and I look great until that point! Then, look at the entire length of the dress on me and see what I see. It’s a bummer.
Love it or leaf it…in Avon’s Filigree Leaf Long Pendant and Filigree Leaf 3-Pack Earrings! The pendant on the long necklace is huge–I didn’t expect it to be so large! I love that it’s molded into a leaf shape, rather than just being a cut out in the shape of a leaf–it really makes it pop in person. The earring set is terrific too–delivering all the autumn vibes in silvertone and goldtone you could ask for. I chose to be matchy-matchy with this pairing, but you can mix and match as you desire–even using different metal finishes together!
Date night calls for some LOVE…in Avon’s fmg Glimmer Eyeshadow Quad in Minx and fmg LOVE Lip Shine in Summer Kiss! OMG, y’all–this entire look was straight fire! Despite it being more of a naturally autumn palette, it reminded me of tans and sunsets. The shadows can be built up to be super rich, or blended out to be softer, and the glimmer shades aren’t super glittery, so us older folks can pull off wearing them. I was surprised the lippie was such a light pinky-peach, but it ended up working really well anyway, so I wasn’t too mad about it. It glided on smoothly and wasn’t super thick or “pasty.” All said and done, I call both total wins!
Those are all of the past few weeks’ selfies! What was your favorite and how would you have worn it?!
