Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

The fam and I flew in the face of this social distancing thing on Sunday to fete my son’s and my mom’s birthdays by breaking bread together while supporting a local restaurant! The menu included Avon’s Striped 3/4 Lace Front Top, Sterling Silver Floral Front to Back Earrings, and Glimmerkiss Liquid Lipstick in Sand Opal!

I sized up to a medium and absolutely love the relaxed fit of this top! Long enough to act as a tunic, it covers all my problem spots AND it doesn’t cling. I’m also a fan of the classic black and white striped pattern–it never goes out of style. Worth every penny!

This week I featured daily sale highlights from Avon’s campaign 5 as follows:

I picked up fresh pasta in downtown Philly for dinner last Saturday night and wore Avon’s Side Tie Ruched Top in Green, Layered Chain Necklace, and the small gold ball studs from Pearly Earring Variety Pack!

This necklace is heavy!  On top of that, I kept having issues with the longest layer’s chain “kinking”.  I took it off and straightened the chain a few times before finally giving up–maybe I got a defective one.  Regardless, I still really liked the look of this one, even if it is a little bit like Mr. T’s starter pack (as the hubs likes to say).  The earrings are exactly like the first pair my ears were pierced with: tiny gold ball studs.  Traditional and works with anything–you can’t go wrong.  The variety pack is crammed with FIFTEEN pairs of earrings: five goldtone, five silvertone, and five rose goldtone–all with traditional ball studs and pearl ball studs in varying sizes–a tremendous deal!

I’m taking this sparkle show on the road…er, to work! Featuring: Avon’s Cluster Huggie Hoop Earrings—a star is born!

When I saw these and read the description, I thought there was s real possibility that my fat lobes wouldn’t fit, but I’m delighted to report that I was wrong! While they are still small compare to other hoops, they are definitely large enough to accommodate all lobe sizes. They also pack a lot of sparkle in such a tiny package!

Just a few more hours in NYC before we fly back home—it’s been terrific! I’m wearing the hoops from Avon’s Pearly Earring Pack.

What I really like about these is the very modern way the mounted the hoop so it hangs statically like a stud earring, but is still very clearly a hoop.  The pearl placement also surprises–it’s mounted at the top center of the hoop, rather than swinging freely or being mounted at the bottom of the hoop to prove that gravity always wins.  Overall, it’s unique and creates visual interest–it’s purely unexpected.  It’s one of the best parts of fashion: showing off accessories that inspire interest, surprise, and delight.  This pair of earrings definitely hit their mark.
