What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

Are you hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are an easy going attendee then picking out an outfit is a little more fun and less strategic. My suggestion, the ever so popular sweater dress! It looks polished, put together but is oh so cozy and comfy. My pick is the Avon Elena Sweater Dress.

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Why is the Elena Sweater Dress my pick?  Well, first off its black so instantly chic, and flattering. Its also a straight fitting shape, not tight so you can eat and sit and lounge and still be totally fine.  Like I said, it’s cozy and comfy and that’s what fall is all about!  It’s also $39.99 so super affordable.

Plus the Elena Sweater Dress comes pre-glammed with these fun rhinestone details.  No necklace required!  Just layer on some cute bracelets like these Avon Pearly Jet Stretch Bracelets.  I also added the Avon Sterling Silver Onyx rings for a little more glam.

To make it holiday ready I really like it paired with these Marc Fisher red booties and red plaid bag from Guess.  Of course it needed to be paired with a mega shiny red lip, the mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Glamour.  What I like about the lip paint for Thanksgiving is it has some serious staying power and is a bright red.

Guess being a procrastinator pays off.  If you saw on my IG Stories (@wordofalicia) for Wear and Share Wednesday I featured the mark. Printed Dreams Dress, which is now on clearance for $26.99!  Good thing this wanderlust look is just as cute in fall as it is in late summer!

Late Summer Style

Late Summer Style

For late summer I styled it with a teal bow belt (WHBM) and teal espadrille sandals (mark.)  However for fall I’ve worn it with booties and a denim jacket.  I can see this being just as cute with OTK (over the knee) or tall boots and a cozy sweater under your jacket for even cooler days.  This would make a cute Thanksgiving look too!

First Monday of Fall

First Monday of Fall

First Monday of Fall

Today is the first official Monday of fall. It’s also Mani Monday, Makeup Monday, Man Crush Monday, and Meatless Monday. So that means today is Fall Mani Monday, Fall Makeup Monday, Fall Man Crush Monday and Fall Meatless Monday… right?

Mani Monday:  Avon Gel 7 in 1 Polish in Glimmer

Mani Monday: Avon Gel 7 in 1 Polish in Glimmer

Mani Monday:  This weekend I had an exciting Sat night staying in and binging Marriage at First Sight by myself. Yep, you heard.  So I figured I might as well do my nails.  I wanted a fall-ish shade that would still go with my hot weather outfits.  Avon Gel Finish 7 in 1 Nail Polish in Glimmer.  (last seen here)  It’s more of a bronzy gold so fitting for the fall harvests!

Fall Lip Of The Week:  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Marvelous

Fall Lip Of The Week: mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Marvelous

Makeup Monday:  Today I pulled out my mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Mauvelous and I’m just loving it as my everyday fall lip shade.  It’s super on trend and really goes with the fall vibes, and also so comfortable to wear.

Fall Wedding Vibes

Fall Wedding Vibes

Man Crush Monday:  Man crush everyday is the husband, but fall is his jam.  He’s an October baby, our anniversary is in Oct and we’re about to take a little fall holiday vaca to Universal Studios so let’s get excited!

Free Espira Energy

Free Espira Energy

Meatless Monday:  On the menu today, cabbage soup! (I use this recipe)  I’m trying to get things more aligned as I have to start wearing pants again.  (oooh summer dresses I’m going to miss you…).  This week I prepped cabbage soup for a little crash diet along with fresh fruits, fresh veggies, whole foods and the boost system from Espira.  Which is currently on promotion with a FREE bottle of Espira Natural Energy with any $40 Espira purchase at www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Either way I’m welcoming fall as a time to refresh and revive.  It may still be 93 degrees out today, but Hello Fall!

Meet Mademoiselle Heather

Meet Mademoiselle Heather

Meet Mademoiselle Heather

Bonjour Monsieur, Bonjour Mademoiselle!  Meet Mademoiselle Heather!  I was first introduced to her via her IG by fellow friendly face, Erica.  Back then it was full of pictures of nachos with a few Avon and mark. items thrown in, now it has way more selfies than nachos, but someone who likes nachos and selfies is worth getting to know!  Heather is a fellow Avon Lady from Oregon, who’s wit shines through her social media and blog (Hopelessly Heather).  Heather represents her lady like side with her real life reviews of fashion and more importantly on a ton of jewelry!  Which is why I wanted to bring in the jewelry expert to share her take on the new jewelry from the Fall For Paris collection from Avon, and she did not disappoint!

Meet Mademoiselle Heather 


What would you do if you won an entire collection of Paris inspired jewelry? Have a fashion shoot, right?! Throw on your scarves and hold on to your berets while I take you along a bit of my fashion shoot of Avon’s Fall for Paris jewelry line…and some of their clothing!

1: A classic Parisian look featuring the Mila Dress accessorized with the Choker Necklace and Stud Earring Trio (I picked the clusters) from the Diamondesque line and Gunmetal Coil Bracelet from the Contemporary Beads Collection. The dress is a beautiful herringbone tweed in a neutral grey with an adorable ruffle along the hem – a very feminine, but not girly, touch. What I love most about this dress is its flexibility to dress it up for a night out or sensibly for work and just about any other occasion you can imagine. Accessories alone set the tone for this piece



2. For several days before this fashion shoot, I repeatedly dreamt about one specific shot – and this is it! 

3. This structured LBD is in a deliciously thick ponté fabric that looks summery, but is definitely built for fall! If you’re into the fun graphic mod look from the 60s, then the Modern Geo Collection is totally your bag! I didn’t have the heart to break up the set, so I wore the Statement Necklace, Drop Earrings and Stretch Bracelet to complete the overall look.

4. Still in the LBD from above but I swapped out the jewelry pieces and opted instead for the Maroon Necklace (minus the earrings from the set) and Metro Maroon Watch from the Contemporary Beads Collection as well as the Goldtone Stud Earrings from the Celestial Spirits Collection. It’s impossible to showcase in a photo just how sparkly the necklace is – such a stunning piece!

5. Still in the LBD from above with the skinny rectangles from the Diamondesque Stud Earring Trio and the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Necklace that I looped around my neck to give it a layered look – one of my favorite tricks to shorten a long necklace and quasi-satisfy my longtime lust for chokers.

6. I switched things up with the super shimmery Madeline Asymmetrical Tee – a thin (but not sheer) fabric that’s a perfect weight for the end of summer! This tee looks like a party but feels like a comfy night in – the best of both worlds! The Gunmetal Contemporary Beads Collection Necklace (again, minus the matching earrings from the set) and Hoop Earrings from the Diamondesque Collection finish off the look by adding more glitz to the mix!

7. Still in the tee from above I went a completely different direction with the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Bracelet and Celestial Spirits Drop Earrings – this look screams New Orleans French Quarter to me…all I need is a crystal ball or tarot cards to complete the picture! All kidding aside, the most surprising jewelry piece I received were these earrings – they are so much more amazing in person than the stock photo in the brochure gives them credit for!

8. Still in the tee from #6 above I stuck to the Celestial Spirits Collection showing off its Orbit Pendant Necklace and Goldtone Stud Earrings (again).

9. I opted to put two showstoppers together for this look because I just had to find an excuse to break out the leopard print Kamila Coat! This piece is probably the piece I’m most excited about owning – I’m chomping at the bit to be able to wear this for real…it’s a surprisingly heavy coat! Dangling from my ears are the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Earrings – an early favorite of mine that deserves to be showcased without a competing necklace!

10. The Modern Geo Collection: Statement Necklace, Drop Earrings and Stretch Bracelet

11. Diamondesque Collection Necklace and Earring Set

12. Celestial Spirits Collection: Moon Pendant Necklace and Drop Earrings

13. Deep Red Autumn Romance Collection: Pendant Necklace, Stud Earrings and Drop Earrings; Celestial Spirits Collection: Orbit Pendant Necklace, Goldtone Stud Earrings and Black Locket; Modern Geo Collection Linear Earrings; Maroon Contemporary Beads Collection: Necklace (earrings from the set not pictured) and Metro Maroon Watch

14. Diamondesque Collection: Hoop Earrings and Flex Bracelet; Café Chic Collection Tassel Statement Earrings; Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Necklace; Gunmetal Contemporary Beads Collection: Necklace (earrings from the set not pictured) Coil Bracelet and Modern Mesh Strap Watch

15. Café Chic Collection: Long Tassel Necklace and Drop Earrings

16. Pearly Parisian Collection: Statement Necklace, Fringe Earrings and Layered Bracelet

Are you ready to visit the Eiffel Tower yet? I know I am!

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.

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!?

Word of Alicia:  You can shop this online or instore but it does usually sell out of popular colors/sizes.  I like to take this time to freshen up my lounge gear.  No need to look like a bum even when you’re bumming around the house.  Plus if you need to run out and get a redbox you’re totally ok doing so in some fresh gear.  But honestly its the collegiate gear deals that is the biggest selling point to this post.  Happy Fri-YAY!
