Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Jet black on Valentine’s Day? Yes, please!  Avon’s Modern Jet Necklace and Earring Set (no longer available) was an unexpected choice for the day, but it’s been sitting on my shelf forever, and I finally wore something that I felt worked well to showcase the set.  Its design is pleasingly symmetrical, but still has multiple elements to make it different and interesting to look at.  Despite the positives, I still found the layers of the necklace to be super fussy throughout the day, and the (medium-weighted) earrings were shaped in a way that kept them banging against the side of my neck all day long, which irked me beyond belief.  And yet, I loved the look of the necklace so much, I just might break it out to wear again and just grit my teeth through the annoying bits.

Love is in the air…especially in Avon’s Dazzling Heart Earrings!  Want a set of heart earrings fit for a grown up? Search no further! These puppies are classy and a really great shade of red. The outer layer of clear stones provide brilliance, and make the red hearts really pop. I did have to bust out my magic earring backers so they wouldn’t flop forward, but they do always solve the problem, so it’s more of a minor inconvenience than a real issue. Overall, a beautiful set fit for a queen!

I got fancy for a family birthday brunch—party time!  Avon’s Rose Goldtone & Pavé Necklace and Earring Set was the perfect accessory choice for this outfit!  It was demure enough that it didn’t get in my way at all while I was bopping around the kitchen, but was still a notable set.  As a matter of fact, I’ve worn it a couple more times since, and I’m not super big on rose gold as a rule!  I loved the length of the chain, and the concentric pavé circles are super zen while also providing amped up sparkle.  This set is a 10/10!

Your girl comin’ at you in da hood…in Avon’s Drawstring Hooded Top and the large hoops from their Mixed Metals Earring Pack.  The hooded top is ultra soft and relatively thin, so isn’t bulky, but is still super warm.  Because it’s thinner, it hangs/lays beautifully, and isn’t at all clingy.  The cornflower blue is a lovely neutral that works with any skin tone.  In other words, an ideal sweater!

I wore a little lavender to get through Monday…in Avon’s Elegant Purple Necklace and lavender-y studs from their Gemstone Earring Pack!  I was happy to see the lavender in the necklace show up in photos, because it is very light in person.  As a matter of fact, when I opened the box, I thought they’d packaged a clear one by mistake.  The good news is that’s my only (minor) complaint about the necklace–it otherwise lives up to its name as it is elegant, delicate, and traditionally classic.  I was delighted to find the slightly lavender gemstone studs in the earring collection, and they go with the necklace perfectly!  Their pear-shape (that I flipped to lay down) makes for a lovely difference between the two pieces!
