Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

Nobody could miss the giant Festive Red Flower Earrings I donned on Monday – lightweight showpieces!

These earrings are bloomin’ awesome! (<—-See what I did there?) Surprisingly lightweight and smooshable, so talking on the phone wasn’t problematic.

A little bit holiday, a little bit vintage Avon’s Josephine Ponte Dress would be a classy addition to any wardrobe!

The fabric of this dress is, well, fab! It’s thicker than a jersey fabric, but wears similarly, so it’s a bit stretchy and, because of its thicker weight, pretty forgiving. The classic A line cut works on all shapes and sizes, the arms are cut a bit wider than they have been in Avon fashions lately (thank you to the Avon fashion gods!!) and the length falls just below my knee (I’m a whopping 5’1″). The red is on the bluer side – which should help you decide whether or not it will work with your skin tone. While it’s not an ideal shade of red for my yellowish skin, the black elements definitely helped!

Had I designed this dress, I would have changed only one thing: the neckline. I’m not crazy about a v-neck with this dress. Had their been a faux button down or collar detail, I think it would have worked better but, as is, it’s the one thing that looks out of place to me. A fairly formal looking dress with an informal v-neck. ::wince::

Clearly, the hubs isn’t nit picky since he only said “Wow!” when he saw me. 😉

Avon’s Metallic Mix Pendant Necklace has got something for everyone!

This necklace has practically everything but the kitchen sink! There’s a little bit of everything going on here: gold, red, charms, pearls – you name it! It’s a super long chain – the bottom of the pendant nearly hits my belly button, which is kind of insane. I used the shortest link on the back of the chain and looped it around my neck to have it hang where it does in the picture!
