Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

This week I featured daily sale highlights from Avon’s campaign 20 as follows…

I got through all of last Monday’s challenges in the studs from Avon’s Western Wing Earring Duo!

I previously reviewed the other pair of earrings in this duo and loved how they looked, but found them a little on the heavy side; however, these not only weren’t heavy, but they were a surprise winner–and this is exactly why I post selfies of me wearing the pieces (and follow up with my written review, so you don’t just base your opinion on a single photo). 

Mondays are tough, but this one was definitely easier with the hoops from Avon’s Western Wind Earring Duo!

While these look great, they are kinda heavy–check out the lobe droop-age in the pic!  I really did love the appearance of them, and they worked really well with the casual (old school Avon mark) dress I wore, but boy was I happy to take them off at the end of the day!

Flutter by, butterfly, no wings here, just Avon’s Blue Novelty Blouse with Lace, Silvertone Summer Statements Bib Necklace, and Deco Halo Stud Earrings!

As much as I love the trend, I cannot pull off the off-shoulder look–my shoulders are very narrow and wimpy looking, so wearing anything off of them tends to shine a bright spotlight on that fact…and they are not something I’m interested in people noticing.  Luckily, this top has elastic that still looks good when not worn off the shoulder–except that I did notice a tiny gap on the top of my shoulder where the fabric tented/gapped (see second pic for better close ups) instead of laying flat.  The fabric is a medium weight, so it’s not a top I’d wear in the deadliest heat of summer, but totally appropriate for cooler summer nights and days.

Every dang weekend is grey and rainy, so I visibly protested last weekend’s weather by wearing Avon’s Modern Abalone Pendant Necklace and the fans/half shells from the Everyday Glam Stud Earring Mega Pack!

First up is the necklace–it’s a layered necklace with abalone AND a choker!!  Those two elements put this in the “I must own it” category.  However, there are two things about this necklace keeping me from absolutely loving it: (1) the choker layer looks very cheaply made in person, doesn’t lay smoothly, and (of course) my pencil-neck means it’s more of a collar necklace than a choker on me because the chain doesn’t cinch up small enough; and (2) the pendant tends to stick to my skin, and tends to hang off-kilter.  ::whomp, whomp::

The stud earrings are super cute!  Because they are so small, the detail can’t really be seen from a distance, which is a shame because the detail is what make these so great.  This mega pack has so many terrific and flexible pieces in it!
