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

Moves Like Jagger

Moves Like Jagger

Wear and Share Wednesday has moves like Jagger… or at least that’s how I feel, a little like Mick Jagger in this OOTD.

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

Bell Sleeves and Striped Pants

My Mick Jagger Vibe really comes from these Hudson striped skinny jeans being paired with a very boho blouse from mark.  The mark. Tassel Without Hassle Tunic is described as “Unleash your desert spirit and let it roam for miles with flowy fits and boho-inspired silhouettes. Break free with the totally-airy tunic that takes you away on a spontaneous adventure.”  If that doesn’t embody the spirit of the 60’s… and 60’s Mick Jagger… than I don’t know what does.

My vibe isn’t so much boho or free spirit but I appreciate it so I took it in my own direction with pairing it with striped pants and silver and turquoise jewelry.  The mark. Third Layer’s A Charm Necklace is a real show stopper, take my word for it, but it also has that layered jewelry look all in one piece.  Mick Jagger vibes all in one necklace.

I just feel I could hop on a tour bus and do a summer tour in this outfit!  It was mega comfortable, and shout out to Liselda who’s Secret Santa Marshall’s Gift Card got me these Hudsons 😉

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.

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.
