Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I don’t blush, but my jewelry does! Check out Avon’s ultra-feminine Blush Statement Necklace and Earring Set!

It’s not pink, it’s blush!  (For those uninitiated, that’s my nod to my favorite movie, Steel Magnolias–if you haven’t already seen it, I highly recommend it.  You’ll laugh, you’ll cry, and, best of all, you’ll laugh while you’re crying!)  This set features blush and clear glass stones set in rose goldtone that have an iconic circa 60s Avon feel to the design.  One of the pluses to the necklace is that it can be cinched up to be work at choker length as well.  I opted not to wear it at that length for this particular outfit because I felt it would pop more against a black (or dark) background–and I was right!  The earrings aren’t heavy, but they are bulk, and I broke out my trusty magic earring backers (they seriously work!!) to make sure they didn’t tip forward.  Definitely a pretty set to have on call!

A Vintage Holiday with Heather and Alicia I hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving enjoying the holiday with friends and family all while looking fab.  One thing about the holidays, is that magical feeling you get from the nostalgia. I love a holiday tradition, applying my old and making…

Love chokers and the trendy layered look? Done and done in Avon’s Amazonite Power Stone Layered Necklace!

Another dainty layered choker–this time in silver with an aqua colored stone pendant!  ‘m thrilled that Avon is providing additional styles of chokers, rather than the typical black velvet ribbon with a pendant on it…though I love those too.  I love having options: colors, styles, metals, single strand or layers–they all make me happy to have on hand so I can better accessorize my outfits the way I’d like to, as opposed to being forced into a style box.

I wore Avon’s Sterling Silver CZ Cluster Necklace and Earrings yesterday to work—respectable, traditional, dainty.  Done!

The necklace and earrings are sold separately and the necklace is, unfortunately, sold out–both are blingy and beautiful, but also very dainty.  If you are looking for larger, bulkier pieces, these will not fit that bill.  However, if you are looking for nice, tasteful pieces that are appropriately sized for a younger girl, look no further!  While I would have preferred at least the necklace to be a little more substantial, I can’t complain about the quality or beauty–Avon’s sterling silver pieces are always top notch!

I wore one of Avon’s Pave Star Necklaces a couple of weeks ago (see original review) and suggested layering them for a different look—so I took my own advice on Saturday!!
