Fall Wish List

Fall For Paris

Fall For Paris

Fall For Paris

Paris is always a good idea right? While I fuel up the private jet, I’ll lust over the new Fall For Paris fashion, jewelry and home collection from Avon.  This limited edition collection just launched today at my eBoutique and my wish list is already a mile long.  Parisian influenced this collection is sophisticated, from the design to the color pallet with a lot of versatility.  There’s a special place in my heart for all things french! (shout out to Melle, Nicki, crepes, eclairs, and French Disney Singalongs!)

Not only is the Parisian inspired fashion a really well done collection of wear now wear later pieces perfect for fall shopping, it’s also modeled complete by real women, real representatives.  August is Avon Rep appreciation month so why not feature our best asset in the brochure, our reps!  Plus you can get a better view of what they actually look like on real bodies.

 

You can view all the fashion and jewelry pieces here.

 

 

Don’t forget Avon home Autumn Romance Collection!  I’m equally lusting over these home accents !  I think they are very modern while still being sophisticated.  The colors add just enough warmth as we transition into fall.  Plus can’t you see these all being in that cool girl’s digs!?

Trending Tuesday: #wrapdress

If the world of alicia was the internet #wrapdress would totally be trending.  I’m slightly obsessing over wrap dresses and finding a few to add to my arsenal after picking up this navy one at Ross (also currently obsessing over, such great dress finds lately!).  This past wrap dress look is one of my all time favorite outfits (and posts!).  A wrap dress can be SUPER flattering on all body shapes, that’s why they’re so popular and Diane von Furstenberg is a freakin legend.  Here are the wrap dresses I’m currently obsessing over:

Avon Bordeaux Knit Dress – and paired with that adorable faux fur stole, I think this has to be my Thanksgiving day look!  (s-3x $24.99)

Avon Little Red Dress – this has been on my wishlist since like last December!  How perfect for the holidays!?  I really like that its a little longer in the back for some extra drama.  NEED.  (s-xl $24.99 1x-3x $29.99)

Avon Little Red Dress

Diane von Furstenberg Long Sleeve Floor Length Wrap Dress – Another reason I need the Avon version is because I don’t have $548 to splurge on a DVF.  LOVE this full length red with the cute neck scarf and booties… swoon!

Trending Tuesday: September Inspo

September Inspo

September Inspo

If the world of Alicia was the internet inspo for September would totally be trending!  September for me is always a love/hate relationship.  I LOVE August, summer, hot temps and long days.  September is the start to the end of all of that… but also the start of more things I love, Penn State football, all football, apple hill (for my nor cal’ers) and all the fun events in September.  Luckily it’s still summer hot here and we technically have a few weeks left of summer so here’s what’s inspiring me for September!

Color Pallet

September Inspo Colors

September Inspo Colors

This month I’m really feeling all shades of blues, especially navy, camels and nudes, red and burgundy with a bit of neutral blush tones and light greys.  Think very collegiate shades.

Just as inspiring as a color pallet I always have a print I gravitate toward.  September it’s always plaid and menswear fabric inspired prints.

September Beauty

Lauren Conrad's Makeup for September

Lauren Conrad’s Makeup for September

I saw this pic of Lauren for her September LC Lauren Conrad Collection ad and I immediately was smitten.  This is what September beauty is about, flawless skin, a light and bright eye with a classic wing liner, full lashes and a bright but deep berry lip.  I already use her staple eyeliner, mark. On The Edge Liquid Liner and I think I can find a similar lip shade!

Apple Everything

Apple Crisp

Apple Crisp

If pumpkin everything is the motto for October then apple everything is the inspo for September!  I’ll be sure to make my favorite apple crisp, take a visit to Apple Hill and light a few of my favorite apple scented candles this month.  I totally like apple flavors way more than pumpkin!

Avon Fresh Apple

What is inspiring you this September?  Any traditions you like to bust out come September?

 

Fall Preview and a Sale! and my Top Picks!

I love August for all things summer but I also love all the pre-fall newness we start to get.  Even if I’m not quite wearing sweaters and heading to the pumpkin patch I am scouting out my fall game plan.  Lucky for us my eBoutique is doing a FALL PREVIEW SALE!  In the whole time I’ve been a rep this has never happened!  SO!  We get a peek at what is coming out this fall BUT we also get to shop it now AND get it on sale!  Now through 8/13 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger a select group of upcoming fall items are available NOW at 10% off.  (PLUS if your cart is $75 use promo code AVONFB75 for 20% more off!)

Top Picks!  There are a great number of items that are perfect for now, great for transitioning and will be even better for fall!  Here are my top picks from the Fall Preview Sale:

mark. Neutral Territory Bag

mark. Neutral Territory Bag

This camel colored bag with clean structured shape is the perfect bag for now through fall!  It will look equally chic with a white tank and jean shorts as it does with your fall knits!  This is my top pick and what I’m for sure ordering!

mark. Closely Linked Bracelet

mark. Closely Linked Bracelet

The mixed metals and textures will be perfect for pretty much any outfit.  I’m a bracelet person and this is kind of like the bracelet version of a statement necklace.  Again another wear now and later piece!

Avon Home Fragrances Fall Candles

Avon Home Fragrances Fall Candles

Avon’s Home Fragrance Tripple Wick Candles in Autumn Day, Fresh Apple, Whipped Pumpkin and Salted Camel are a definite must!  Stock up now because they’re under $10 and all the perfect fall scents!  This are also handy to have to on hand for last minute gifts for birthdays, hostess, etc.  Plus it’s a better price than Bath and Body Works and just as good!

Mercury Glass Pumpkin with LED Lights

Mercury Glass Pumpkin with LED Lights

Definitely need a little home decor to accent your fall candles so this LED light up mercury glass pumpkin is it!  Fall decor just makes things a little bit more cozy as the cooler weather creeps in.  The warm glow from the light up pumpkin just helps it along!

Avon Touch Of Lace Top

Avon Touch Of Lace Top

Wear it now with shorts and sandals or wear it later with a blazer and jeans this top is a great little neutral number with a touch of lace!  Classic and versatile!

Avon Glam Time Heel

Avon Glam Time Heel

Maybe pair the above top with this fun heel!  It has fall friendly features in the the metallic detailing and faux suede upper but will work perfectly now with the cutouts!  I love that it almost has a shootie feel to it!

mark. crazy for cranberry whipped up body butter

mark. crazy for cranberry whipped up body butter

Last but not least this mark. body butter in crazy for cranberry!  These mark. body butters are my absolute favorites, they are super moisturizing and smell wonderful.  I know this scent I’ll be sporting all fall and winter but it’s nice to get a little bit of that now on my summer sunned skin!

Honestly there is something for everyone in this little fall preview sale but at the very least head over to http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and take a peek on what’s coming up this fall season.  I personally will be taking advantage of this little deal and I hope you will to!  Remember to use promo code AVONFB75 for an extra 20% off!

Hello August!

Hello August, my favorite month of the year!  I might be slightly partial because it’s birthday month, but it is also the last real month of summer.  So time to get in all those summer activities for a wanderlust August; pool days, beach/lake/river days, ice cream on a hot night, exploring, and of course summer vacations!  I’ll be headed to Kauai Hawaii this month for our honeymoon (10 months later…) Also in August all the back to school stuff comes out in full force, so it’s a perfect time for some newness as well as a great time for shopping sales.  It’s also treat yo’self month for me!  I try to make it a special one in honor of my birthday. Last but not least, it marks the beginning of football season, my favorite time of the year!  Here’s my inspiration for August and an idea of what you can be seeing this month here on the blog!

Fall Boots That Don’t Break The Bank

Fall Boot Look from mark_girl Instagram

Fall Boot Look from mark_girl Instagram

Here’s the #1 reason I love boots so much:  I’m always cold.  Boots keep you warmer than sandals so boots it is!  Besides the fact that they are super cute, usually more comfy than most the other shoes I own and practical for pretty much every occasion, I usually am wearing boots because I’m cold.  Now that the cat’s out of the bag here are my top picks topping my fall wish list:

 

1.  Ridding Boots – Even though I’ve wanted them for years I’ve yet to own a pair of riding boots.  They might not be as trendy as they were say 2-3 years ago, but the classic style is a staple everyone should have in their boot arsenal, especially for walking and activities.  My #1 pick are the mark. Go For A Ride Boots which are part of the Fall Sale for ONLY $45 (orig $60)!  Coming in 2nd place are the LC Conrad Riding Boots for Kohls $59.99 (orig $99).

mark. Go For A Ride Boots Orig $60 NOW $45

2.  Lace Up Boots – In the 6th grade I had these lace up boots that were imitation Timbs (Timberlands for the urban impaired) that I wore with slouch socks or these socks from Limited Too that had a daisy on them that matched my daisy print shorts also from Limited Too.  I think that was my favorite outfit to date (is that sad I peaked in 6th grade haha)  So I think it’s been long enough that it’s time to add in some lace up boots back into my wardrobe…. however, still on the search for daisy print shorts.

mark. Army of Style Boots $60

DIVA LOUNGE Jetta Womens Military Boots $39.99

3.  Booties – I definitely already own quite a few pairs of booties, BUT they’re the most practical to wear with work outfits to nights out to casual wear.  I’m swooning over the mark. Multi-Mixed Media Booties also in the Fall Sale for ONLY $48 (orig $65).  That’s a great price for genuine leather and suede, and will practically go with every outfit I own!  Plus, I also need a fun oxford type bootie like these blush and lace ones from DSW.

mark. Multi Mixed Media Booties NOW $48

Not Rated Ezra Bootie $49.95

4.  Tall Dressy Boots – Ok so this is pretty much what my entire boot collection is made of.  So what!  I like tall boots and tall heels!  But my current old go to from Shoedazzle are on their last legs and I need to replace them.  I want a tall black boot with some fun detail like the gold zipper  and gold heels on these mark. Mixed Details Tall Boot $90 (launching 10/31/14).  Now $90 is a little on the high end and they definitely aren’t walk all day boots but I can’t stop thinking about them!!!  So added to the wish list…

Which boots are on your fall wish list?  With a lot of these on a good sale I definitely can add a few into my boot collection!  You can shop some of the featured boots on the Fall Sale at my eBoutique:  http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger be sure to use promo code BESTBEAUTY for 20% off a $60 order!

The Perfect Fall Sweater – mark. Chain Of Command Cardigan

The perfect fall day requires the perfect fall sweater.  Which I found in the mark. Chain of Command Cardigan ($50).  Why is this the perfect fall sweater you ask?  Let me list the reasons:

1.  Earthy fall coloring with edgy chain detailing that is totally different but also super chic and trendy.

Sequins and Chains!

Sequins and Chains!

2.  SEQUINS!  Yes!  The knit contains just the right amount of glimmering sequin littered throughout to just give you a little sparkle!  Like the sun shining through on a crisp fall day!

3.  It’s super cozy and comfy, as a perfect sweater should be.

Cozy and Chic in the mark. Chain Of Command Cardi

4.    The longer length and open front allows you to wear this casually over a t-shirt dress, or with your favorite boyfriend jeans and booties.  It’s perfect for a causal cool look.

5.  You can dress it up!  This sweater is equally as chic paired with your favorite dark denim and some metallic heels, like the mark. Pumped With Vogue Heels.  The two together are the ULTIMATE fall duo!

mark. Chain Of Command Cardigan and Pumped With Vogue Heels

6.  You can do so many activities in your mark. Chain of Command Cardigan, like visit apple orchards and pumpkin patches.  You know, all your basic white girl fall activities.

7.  It matches the perfect fall mani perfectly!  (the pumpkin spiced mani!)
