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!

Natasha’s Ultimate Holiday Party Skirt

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.

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 few things I loving to gift or get:

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!?)

What’s a holiday look without a little glitter!?  I added some glitter with these mark. High On Glitter Platform Pumps.  These black suede heels are really comfortable with the block heel and platform and also really secure with the ankle strap… and the perfect holiday heel!

I love this outfit for Thanksgiving because its classic but still fun, comfortable but still put together. It can handle eating all the turkey you want and still look amazing.  Think about it you could get this dress for $16.99, the earrings for 12.99 and the heels for $50, which qualifies you for the Beauty Of Gold A Box for only $10.  THEN use promo code AVONBLACK to get 20% off all of this, free shipping AND a FREE 7 piece beauty gift to complete the look.  So for under $100 you have your holiday look from head to toe NAILED.  You can thank me later.

London calling! Channel an era of short skirts, extra-long lashes and graphic black-and-white prints with the new mark.

Word on mark. Mod Eau De Parfume:  Introducing mark. MOD EDP Spray, a 2017 holiday exclusive. Swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure.

mark. Mod Eau De Parfume

mark. Mod Eau De Parfume

NOTES
• Top Note: swinging medley of rose
• Middle Note: capucine florals
• Bottom Note: spicy nutmeg allure

Word Of Alicia:  I would call this scent clean and masculine, and I absolutely adore it!  It is something completely different than anything else in my fragrance wardrobe.  The first time I sampled it I was like eh… then I used it and really got to explore the notes and how they layer.  OBSESSED.  Plus it lasts all day,  and then some!  Much longer than most mark. fragrances.  This one smells way more expensive than $30 would suggest.  It also has a really good retro feel to fit the mod theme.

Word on mark. Mod Body Lotion:  This creamy, extra-rich companion lotion leaves skin feeling soft, silky and eau so MOD.  mark. MOD is a swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure. 6.7 fl. oz.

BENEFITS
• Provides moisturization
• Has a creamy texture
• Absorbs quickly
• Leaves skin feeling soft and silky
• Lightweight
• Non-sticky and non-greasy

Word Of Alicia:  Free with the purchase of the fragrance… sold!  Layering this with the fragrance really lasted into the next day, used alone still gave me a lot of scent.  Its a good weight too, not too heavy not to light. I personally liked that it lasted, and was free, so win win!

Word on mark. Mod Pop Eyeshadow Pallet:  Pop goes the shadow. An exclusive limited edition eyeshadow palette with 12 all new shades! Get muted brights when applied dry and even bolder hues when swept on wet.

Word Of Alicia:  Let me just say that this is my new go-to pallet!  Besides having super cute packaging this pallet is the perfect size, portable and thin.  The pans are a really good size too, so a good amount of product with the 12 different shade options.  These shades are a really unique offering for holiday too… this is one you can use on the day to day and still get party looks for the season.  (check back for tomorrow’s look using it!).  I loved this pallet so much I made a swatch video of it so you can really see how wearable the shades are.  Very buildable as you can see during the swatches but also really long lasting.  If you liked the mark. On The Dot Pastels this will be a good replacement. After doing some pinning on all things mod I really saw how all these shades are quite retro and very much of the mod movement, but wear very modern.   100% satisfied.
