Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

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!
