A Vintage Holiday with Heather and Alicia

A Vintage Holiday with Heather and Alicia

I hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving enjoying the holiday with friends and family all while looking fab.  One thing about the holidays, is that magical feeling you get from the nostalgia. I love a holiday tradition, applying my old and making new ones.  Heather and I are trying to share those vibes today with a little vintage holiday.  Vintage is not only super on trend, and a theme perfect for gifting for all ages, but its also a way to capture those warm and fuzzies.

Getting ready for holiday events is half the fun.  Everyday I use a body lotion because if I forget to put on perfume I at least have a fragrant layer.  A vintage inpspired makeup look is perfect for the holidays, a neutral eye, winged liner and a red lip.  PERFECT.  Topped  off with some jewelry whatever you’re wearing feels as special as the day.  For my neutral eye I’ve been loving the So Gorgeous Eye Palette.  For my holdiay red lip I’m loving the Avon Iconic Lipstick in crimson carnation.  Not only is it the perfecto holiday red, its also in a fun vintage inspired metal tube that feels just as special pulling it out and using it.

I usually like to pull vintage vibes when I’m wearing all black, its a way to take your basics from being boring to being the bee’s knees!  Pop of red, pop of sparkly and I’m holiday ready.  Not only do I personally like to wear this look I think it would make a great gift idea.  You could do the Sparkling Vanilla Champaign bath and body collection with the So Gorgeous Eye Palette and an Iconic lipstick for a gift that works well after the new year.  Bump it up with some jewelry or those adorable bubble baths in the cute cat bottles for even bigger gift.  (see Heather’s Vintage Holiday below)

“Whether you want to add a little vintage glam, a sprinkle of whimsy, or go full retro for the holidays, Avon’s got you!  Everything old is new again–or at least cool again–so tease that hair, wing that eyeliner, and jump into the hip and happening trend this season

Start by taking a luxurious bubble bath with Prim and Prissy to keep you company.  After drying off, spray on a layer of the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne Body Mist to be that hint of a fragrance in the room everyone asks about.

Crack open the Classic Glam A Box to line those eyes in smoke and brush on some mascara that will stay put throughout the entire day, no matter what you do.  Pick your favorite lip color from three classic shades in the Iconic Lipstick line and make sure to carry it with you in your clutch–these tubes are a work of art in and of themselves!  Accessorize with your jewelry pieces of choice–there are TONS of pieces to choose from to suit your particular taste, but make sure to add the Iconic Collectible Wreath Pin to your coat lapel or scarf to top it off with seasonal style.  And don’t forget that hostess gift: the 2019 Vintage Inspired Pewter Ornament is sure to delight and you won’t be bringing a double!”  – Heather

We all know that fall is the perfect time for layering… cool mornings, warm afternoons, and all. But what about layering your jewelry!? Layered necklaces is a huge trend this fall so Heather from Hopelessly Heather and I have brought you our tips and tricks on nailing this layered look this fall.

 

Alicia’s Tips and Tricks:

Layering Coin Necklaces

Layering Coin Necklaces

Move over big statement necklaces because layered necklaces are the trend!  You can still get maximum impact with a more casual vibe.  Take a trendy necklace, like these coin necklaces in different metal tones, and pendant details, and layer them together.  I really like these Avon Sacred Coin Necklaces because they have adjustable chains so you really can get whatever length you want out of them.  A nice rule of thumb when layering is go with 3.  Don’t be super perfect on the layers, go for 2 that are closer together and one longer.  Coin jewelry is really hot right now so its just the right trend to layer with.

Layering Necklaces Tips from Heather

Layering doesn’t have to be a mystery—use pre-existing layered necklaces as a base and build around them!  Avon makes it super easy by creating collections containing necklaces of varying lengths and, lately, including layered necklaces—but don’t think you have to stick to pieces within the same collection for them to work well together as layering pieces.  You really only need one common element (e.g., pearls, silver, gold, beads, CZs, etc.) to make layering work.  Not only is it fun and easy to do, it can also breathe new life into your existing pieces!
