The Ultimate Holiday Party Skirt

Tis’ the season for all things sparkle, glitter, glisten and sequins!  A few friends and I are in full holiday spirit showing you the ULTIMATE holiday party skirt, mark. Any Which Way Sequin Skirt!  This sequin skirt is like multiple skirts in one!  It features brush sequins, so depending which way you swipe the sequin the skirt wears gold or teal… swipe down for gold, up for teal, or create any sort of pattern you want.

I’m wearing my skirt as if its dipped in gold!  First push all the sequins up so it’s teal, then brush down the bottom in an uneven pattern for a dipped in gold look.  Perfect for NYE or a holiday party!  I paired mine with a simple tank, white fur stole, (mark. Chill Factor Stole), glittery gold heels, and some shimmering jewelry!

Our friend over at Sealaura is wearing hers in an uneven pattern to really showcase the uniqueness of this skirt.  She paired hers with a basic black turtleneck which would work perfectly if you’re wearing it to an office party.  Sophisticated and still fun!  Check out her full blog post for a really good look at those sequins!

Fellow rep and fashion fan, Natasha is going for the gold by wearing the skirt all swiped down for that full on gold look.  She paired hers with a basic black turtleneck, a black and gold arm party (mark. Grow Your Stack Bracelet Set), and tall black boots (Avon Cushion Walk Kiki Stretch Fashion Boot).  A winter friendly way to wear the skirt, and perfect for a Christmas house party!

Beauty Boss and fellow rep Bronwyn styled hers my favorite way, for day!  Also keeping her skirt all gold, she dressed it down with a cute graphic tee and a faux leather jacket.  This makes it extremely wearable for anyone and everyone.  Add a little glam with the Avon Stylish Sparkle Multicolor necklace and you have yourself some day sparkle!

A Clutch Worthy Holiday Mani

A Clutch Worthy Holiday Mani

A Clutch Worthy Holiday Mani

A good holiday mani is so clutch during the holiday season.  It doesn’t have to be a full on nail art situation, it can be as simple as a really good red.  Including today and Christmas day we only have 3 MORE MANI MONDAYS of the holiday season!  So let’s paint the nails red!

Red and Gold Holiday Mani

Red and Gold Holiday Mani

My perfect holiday red polish is the Avon True Color Pro+ Nail Enamel in Royal Red.  My glimmering gold accent nail is Avon Gel Finish 7-in-1 Nail Enamel in Glimmer.  Both are finished with the Avon Gel Finish Top Coat.

Simple, easy and perfect for the holidays! What goes with the perfect simple holiday mani?  The perfect holiday clutch, the mark. Soft Touch Velvet Clutch to be exact!  This deep navy velvet clutch from mark features a super pretty ruffle design on the front and a diamond like opening so you can get in and out of it super easy.  Plus slots for cards, detachable strap and a super pretty top lock!

I really find this to be the perfect pairing for the holiday!  Usually a clutch can barely fit what you need to bring but this one fits it all and is super pretty.  (Peep a live view here) You can shop my mani, bracelet and clutch at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger I also wanted to note that I got both these polishes in past A Boxes (see here).  If you are not taking advantage of these $10 deals then you are missing out!  Basically for the price of buying the polishes I got $90 worth of product!  The Party Ready A Box is our latest A Box now available at my eBoutique!

Christmas Day OOTD!  Nothing I love more than a good holiday tradition, which is why Erica’s Fashion and Beauty and I are having a pajama party!  If your pj’s ever count as an OOTD Christmas Eve/Day is it, and with some really cute options from Avon this year there’s no reason not to refresh your lounge gear.

When we were little my brother and I planned our jammies for our favorite day and now I kinda still do that.  I have a stash of holiday jammies in red and green I pull out every year but when I saw this Winter Soft collection from Avon in soft shades I knew it was time to add something different to the collection.  I went for the Winter Soft Solid Knit PJ Pants in the soft lavender color.  I thought they would be something that I could wear year round with how soft and lightweight they are, but for the holiday’s I’ll pair them with an extra soft snowflake sweater and some new Avon slippers. Plus I just love the big satin bow tie!

I was so excited to see these Avon Winter Soft Memory Foam Bootie slippers in grey (also come in white and pink).  My Muk Luks died this year and I needed to replace, and these Avon booties did not disappoint!  The memory foam is so comfortable.  They were a little tight when you first put them on but once the foam shapes to your foot you’re golden!  I can not get over how comfy they are, they go from baking cookies to lounging watching Christmas movies on the couch, one of my favorite recent items, perfect for a chilly winter day.

These are a few of my favorite (Winter Soft) things…

The Winter Soft collection from Avon all starts with the seasonal favorite Winter Soft bath and body collection but this year also features a range of products in soft shades from these pj’s and slippers to this gorgeous blue necklace to stunning home goods, games, blankets and more!  They all beautifully pair together to create a really stunning gifts.  I think pairing the pj’s and slippers with a robe and bath and body set would be magical.  Or how about the beautiful throw blanket, 7-in1 Game board, and the set of mugs for a winter night in!  Either way I’m ready for my holiday traditions in my new Wintersoft pj’s!

“It’s Christmas morning and I’ve got to be honest, I did not wake up like this. LOL I did however feel comfy and cozy in my Avon pajamas! My sister, Sarah and I always spend Christmas Eve with our parents and have a family breakfast and gift exchange the next morning. No matter how old we get, Santa always brings us a new pair of pajamas. I’m wearing the Binge Watching version of Avon’s Joyful Beautiful Sleepshirt and Sarah is wearing Avon’s Joyful Beautiful Pajama Set in Tree Print. I’m really excited to give my family and friends Avon’s bath and body Senses and Skin So Soft gift boxes. Just add a bow or ribbon and they are ready to give!” – Erica’s Fashion and Beauty

Today is national cookie day!  That’s a day Linda and I can get behind!  With cookie baking get togethers, cookie exchange parties and just your general holiday meet ups, Linda and I have 2 outfit ideas for you for a cookie exchange!

Alicia’s Look:

Alicia Cookie Exchange Look

Alicia Cookie Exchange Look

In my experience cookie exchanges are usually a casual affair, so it’s a perfect time to wear jeans and a sweater (Old Navy).  To make those casual staples more party perfect apply the right accessories.  The highlight of my outfit is my snowflake choker necklace, rep lips and statement heeled boots.  I’m wearing the Avon Velvet Choker Charm Necklace, mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Fired Up and the mark. Rush of Plush Booties.  The rich textures make these trendy pieces party perfect.  And the boots are so comfortable you can wear them for the whole gig without having to switch shoes!

Cookie exchange parties are a reason to wear something a little fun and what’s more fun then a  reversible genuine suede vest with faux fur!  Linda paired her Avon Faux Fur and Suede Vest with a contrasting white bell sleeve blouse and the mark. Pile on the Compliments Pants.  Not every party shoe has to be a heel, her Avon Cushion Walk Lace-Up Gigi Flats are just as adorable and ready to rock around the Christmas tree.  To finish her look Linda has on the Avon Modern Glamour Collection Hoop Earrings, Jet Pave Stretch Bracelet and mark.

A Classy AF Thanksgiving

Classy AF Thanksgiving

Classy AF Thanksgiving

Not all holiday looks are all glitz and glam, some are just classy AF.  And what’s classier than a classic LBD!?  Sometimes just a classic black dress is all you need for your holiday looks!

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

No one needs to argue the power of a Little Black Dress but this Avon Chain-Detail Dress is a must have!  Not only is it a great year round dress in its crepe like fabric but its a great dress for the holidays too!  The best part about it, its only $16.99 at my eBoutique!

Removable Black Chain Detail

Removable Black Chain Detail

The dress features a removable black chain detail around the neckline so you don’t need a necklace. You could easily remove it and pair this dress with your favorite statement necklace.  For this classy af look, I went with a statement earring instead with the Avon Modern Pearlesque Tassel Earrings.  For the rest of my jewelry I went with a simple black watch (Michael Kors) and a simple sparkly bracelet (Avon Modern Glamour Jet Pave Stretch Bracelet).  On lips mark. Vinyl Pout Lip Paint in Glamour.  (could that be any more perfect of a name for this look!?)
