Hopelessly Heather

The ramblings and obsessions of a longtime Avon lady

I don’t usually celebrate Mondays, but…just look at Avon’s Sterling Silver Celebration Cut Solitaire Ring, Necklace, and Stud Earrings!!  These pieces all deliver on their promise to dazzle even more than diamonds!  I’m not really a ring person, but I couldn’t pass this one up–not only was it really affordable, but if we get to go to Paris and Rome next year on vacation, I plan on swapping out my legit diamond wedding set for a CZ set–ain’t no gypsy gonna walk off with my jewels!  And this set seriously passes for real!  I’ve been wearing the earrings and necklace nearly every day since I cracked open their boxes (also, sorry I’ve not been posting as many selfies–this go-round it wasn’t because of a low inventory selection…I simply got “stuck” on this set).  While I have zero complaints about the earrings and necklace, the ring’s baguette band is rough–poke-y and scratchy.  I really wish it were a bit more smooth (and that it came in a 4-1/2, which is what my ring finger actually is…but that’s more of a “just me” issue–having child-sized appendages is cute and all, until you try to buy adult things to adorn them with, like jewelry, hats, and other accessories).  All that said, I’m strongly considering purchasing a second set just so I have a backup–I love it that much!

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!
