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!

Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

Luxe Fall:  Black and Camel

Luxe Fall: Black and Camel

A color combination that always looks luxe is black and camel. A classic combination that works year round, but looks extra appropriate for fall. This fall I found the perfect luxe fall look with black and camel with the mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

mark. Drape Expectations Dress.

My go-to dress this fall has been this mark. Drape Expectations Dress.  It’s super easy to wear, especially for work, one and done!  This dress features a camel sheath dress with a black overlay to create a color block effect.  It’s in a crepe like fabric making the classic color combo even more luxe.  The color blocking/cut in effect also gives the illusion of a slimmer you, and that’s never a bad thing!

To luxe up the look even more I’m wearing the mark. Tough It Out Necklace, Mixed and Matched Bracelet and a genuine leather tote, the Avon Whipstitch Leather and Suede tote.  (all available here)

For the warm fall we’ve been having, this dress has seen a lot of wear just by itself.  Now that its officially November, this dress can easily transition with a cardi or blazer, some tights and boots.  I have this great camel and blacked striped long open cardigan I love wearing with it! It would also look really cute with a black turtleneck underneath, as it has that faux jumper look to it.  A classic dress like this is never a bad idea to add to your closet!

You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger and because this dress is $42 you already qualify for the A Box for only $10!  Get red-y by adding this on and you’ll have a head to toe look perfect for you luxe fall!  (see more about the A-box here)

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!

What To Wear: Fall Dresses

What To Wear:  Fall Dresses

What To Wear: Fall Dresses

Fall is officially here weather I like it or not, or weather the weather suggests it or not.  One thing is for sure, its time for fall dresses!  If its still hot, or gets warm in the afternoons, a fall dress is the perfect solution.  Linda and I have 2 fall dress options we’re loving for fall…

Alicia’s Fall Dress:  Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress $29.99

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress

Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress – and Lexi pondering…

An easy fitting navy dress is never a bad idea.  This Avon Zip-Back Double Layer Dress is one of those throw and go options.  The keyhole neckline means you don’t need a necklace and the exposed zipper and split back add just enough style to stand out.  I like this dress for fall because it’s navy, which is a great transition shade, and it’s super easy to wear, and will go with warm weather sandals, to booties, to cold weather boots!

Also Wearing:  Earrnings, Bracelet:  Avon Lavena Collections; Shoes:  Shoedazzle, Bag:  Brooks Brothers (but for a similar look try the Avon Saffiano Leather Dome Bag)

Linda’s Fall Dress:  Avon Open Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress $29.99

Open-Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress

Open-Shoulder Mock-Neck Dress

The silhouette on this Avon Open Shoulder Mock Neck dress is super on trend, add in an unique print in harvest colors and you’ve got yourself a fine fall dress!  Linda, loves this dress for fall because, “this dress is super comfy, fully lined and transitions perfectly for autumn days. Expect complements when you wear it!” – Linda Montavon, View From The Top Co-Author.

Linda is Also Wearing:  Avon Stainless Steel Timeless Collection Drop Earrings, and Long Necklace and the Stainless Steel Eternal Collection Linked Bracelet along with the  Avon Cushion Walk Lace-Up Gigi Flat.

Pups love fall dresses!

Spring Skirts With Loft Outlet

 

April showers brings May flowers… and spring skirts!  Now that we’ve got warming temps the spring skirts are in full effect.  This year I picked up a few new from my local Loft Outlet.  If you are in the greater Sacramento area, head over to the the Folsom Premium Outlets and check out my friends at the Loft outlet!  Not only will they hook you up with some great customer service, they’ll also fit you up right!

Navy Crochet Skirt From Loft Outlet

Navy Crochet Skirt From Loft Outlet

Out of my Loft Outlet finds, this navy crochet skirt has to be one of my fav’s.  This is actually something that can work year round!  For spring I paired it with a chambray top (also Loft Outlet) but will look equally as cute with a sleeveless blouse for summer or a sweater come fall.

Chambray Navy Skirt Combo

Chambray Navy Skirt Combo

Maybe I’m already in Week O’Nautical mood, but there’s something so clean about navy and white, which is why I LOVE this skirt paired with white accessories.  I took some super trendy white accents and paired them with an otherwise more conservative look.  Thought you couldn’t wear the lucite heels trend?  Well, you’re wrong!  Try these mark. So Clear To Me Sandals with your spring skirts as a way to wear the trend.   The mark. Total Perfection Bag is also the perfect spring/summer bag to add to your collection this year.

Happy First Day Of Fall!

Happy First Day Of Fall!

Happy first day of fall!  Which it is unusually cold today with only a high of 75!!!  #californiaproblems   However, for me, that means I can wear pants, ankle pants, but still pants.  So today I have for you a little pants outfit with the perfect fall tote, well really the any time of year tote!  The mark. Dragon Around Tote is the must have work to weekend bag!

The mark. Dragon Around Tote is a camel, large tote bag with two slip pockets and a zippered pocket.  It’s your standard tote but with a classic luxe look.  Really could be mistaken for a much higher end version but at an affordable price.  I’ve been wanting a really good one from a major lux brand but after getting this mark. one I feel much better that I didn’t spend way beyond my means.

Work to weekend, this bag has you covered.  It’s so simple it will go with everything and large enough to hold everything. I use it to tote all my crap; files, lunch, change of shoes, things I need to mail, snacks, Harry Potter, a sweatshirt, more snacks, magazines for lunch time reading, stuff from work I’ve been meaning to bring home, stuff from home I’ve been meaning to bring to work… you get the idea.  Pretty much your life needs a bag like this.

Work Outfit with Express and White House Black Market

Work Outfit with Express and White House Black Market

For my work outfit I paired a pair of sailor blue ankle pants from White House Black Market with an off the shoulder top from Express.  The blue and white pairing works exceptionally well with the camel tote bag.  I wore blue and white jewelry from Avon and grey heels from Shoedazzle.  For added details I could NOT resist this adorable bag charm (see my bag charm post here).  It’s just perfect for fall and winter and adds a smile to my face every time I glance at it.

Week O’Nautical – Red White and Blue Fall Edition

I always have a bit of summertime sadness come Labor Day knowing my long hot summer days are coming to a close.  Best way to beat the blues is to embrace fall!  It’s still super hot here pretty much through October so I may not be wearing jeans, boots and sweaters but I can embrace fall colors, fabrics and trends.  Which is exactly what I did for today’s Week O’Nautical red white and blue look with fall versions of our patriotic colors.

Embracing fall’s deep burgundy and thick crochet lace in this skirt from Express.  Pair it with a white tank (Express) and fall-tastic chambray and I have a red, white and blue look perfect for Labor Day and beyond.  The mark. Make Way For Chambray Dress was my summer staple for a lightweight layer worn open as a duster, which I can see getting good use this fall too!  See my summer looks with this guy here and here.

Another fall favorite is suede!  Since it’s too hot to wear a suede boot I might as well wear some suede sandals.  You might remember these suede fringe sandals being all the rage in the spring, well they work even better in the fall.  I got these Steve Madden versions on mega deal at T.J. Max by the way!
