Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I’m a little glam, and a little retro in Avon’s Red Deco Necklace and Earring Set is topped off with their super cute vintage-inspired Iconic Lipstick in Wild Rose!

This jewelry set hearkens back to the 50s and 60s–an era where even housewives dressed up for the day and were always presentable should a neighbor, friend, or family member drop in unexpectedly.  It’s one of my favorite fashion eras, and this set is seriously on point.  It’s traditional, so it will never go out of style.  The pendant and earrings are a solid medium size, so they don’t disappear in the presence of any outfit, no matter how bold.  The red is warm, so completely appropriate for the autumn and upcoming holiday season.  I did use my magic earring backers to make sure the studs didn’t flop forward on my lobes, but they aren’t particularly heavy–just bigger than usual.

I’ve always geeked out over Avon’s Iconic line–they always include vintage-inspired items from Avon’s earlier product lines, many from the 50s and 60s…my sweet spot!  You can check out my earlier posts featuring some of these items here and here.  This holiday season’s line does not disappoint–stay tuned for lots more of it to be featured in future blog posts!  This particular lipstick comes packaged in an adorable box with a classic Avon image and the lipstick case itself is a collectible in its super cute retro plaid!  The lipstick itself is deliciously moisturizing, which is badly needed in the winter.  The shade is a brighter version of rose than I normally gravitate towards, but it stops well short of being a true “bright” and turning towards the neon look I tend to avoid.  All in all, this one is a win in every category!

Monday I was feeling a little bit holiday, and a little bit retro in Avon’s Flat Velvet Lipstick in Rose Pink and their very vintage-y Iconic Bow Necklace and Earring Set!

This retro jewelry set is classic in design, so you get that vintage look, but it’s not as chunky as the original designs were, which make this set appear more delicate and intricate. While I wouldn’t choose this particular design (I think it’s too sophisticated) for a very young girl, the size of the necklace pendant and length of the chain is appropriate. Avon always wows with their holiday jewelry and this did not fall short!
