Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

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!

A little bit of soft asymmetry…in Avon’s Soft Asymmetrical Hem Top!  When they say soft, they really mean it!  It’s the ideal weight for autumn–not so thin that you freeze during the crisp mornings, and not so thick that you want to rip it off due to overheating in the warmer afternoons.  The length is a longer length, not quite tunic length, but close enough that you can get away with wearing leggings with it. The soft grey is a lovely neutral that can be accessorized with any other color or pattern.  There’s only one “miss” with this top: the ruffle.  I think it’s wrong for two major reasons: (1) the placement–right in the area I’m self-conscious about, so I’m not super excited the eye is drawn right to it because of the ruffle; and (2) it just looks like a mistake–the ruffle starts at the side seam near the waist, then moves around the front to stop about an inch or so short of the front hem near the top of the thigh.  While I’d have preferred the ruffle weren’t there at all, it sure won’t be stopping me from wearing it this season!
