Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Just a few more hours in NYC before we fly back home—it’s been terrific! I’m wearing the hoops from Avon’s Pearly Earring Pack.

What I really like about these is the very modern way the mounted the hoop so it hangs statically like a stud earring, but is still very clearly a hoop.  The pearl placement also surprises–it’s mounted at the top center of the hoop, rather than swinging freely or being mounted at the bottom of the hoop to prove that gravity always wins.  Overall, it’s unique and creates visual interest–it’s purely unexpected.  It’s one of the best parts of fashion: showing off accessories that inspire interest, surprise, and delight.  This pair of earrings definitely hit their mark.

Vacation is FINALLY here!! Kicking our NYC adventure off in Avon’s Sparkling Grey Pendant Necklace and Drop Earrings!

The photo of the necklace more accurately represents the color of these pieces–I think the earrings were reflecting colors from the sky outside my window.  They are definitely grey and on the deeper side of the grey spectrum to boot.  While I like this set just fine, there’s nothing particularly special about it–I find it to be a pretty classic Avon set.  It doesn’t look high end, but it won’t turn your neck green either.  ::shrug::

Tuesday was such a beautiful day to wear Avon’s Black Modern Sparkle Necklace and Earring Set – sunny, warm and full of promise!

A super cute set that is shaped kinda like abstract ladybugs! The only thing to really point out about these pieces is that the earring backs don’t stay put, making the earrings tip forward as the day wears on. I should have put on my trusty earring back stabilizers, but was in a hurry running out the door to work in the AM and skipped it. Big mistake on my part. Lesson learned!
