A Vintage Holiday with Heather and Alicia

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

A few things I loving to gift or get:

A 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!

What To Wear: Black Friday Shopping

 

What To Wear:  Black Friday

What To Wear: Black Friday

We’re almost to my favorite holiday… Black Friday!  (I kid, I kid) but I do love a good shopping day trip especially when there are mega sales and festive holiday spirit galore!  Don’t let the day get cut short by not wearing the right things.  Here are few tips for dressing for Black Friday.

1. Start With The Right Shoes

Wear A Walkable Shoe

Wear A Walkable Shoe

If your feet are miserable you are miserable.  It’s that simple.  So wear something walkable, comfortable and warm.  A good riding boot/flat boot is always a good choice or a bootie with a thick low heel like these burgundy ones from mark.

Hmm what to buy this black Friday!?

2.  Dress in Layers

Layer Up A Cami, Sweater, Jacket, Scarf

Layer Up A Cami, Sweater, Jacket, Scarf

You’re going to go from cold to warm to hot so dress in layers that you can easily strip off.  I like wearing a open front cardi sweater because for me it’s the perfect not to hot not to cold layer.  AND when you’re shopping especially on a busy day like black friday you’re not going to wait in line for fitting rooms.  This way you can easily take it off and try on tops/sweaters/jackets even if you’re just getting an idea of how something runs as you gift hunt.

3.  Bring The Right Jacket

Standing out in the lines (if you do such a thing) can get cold or start to rain/snow so a longer jacket with a hood is a good bet.  Double bonus if it has a lot of pockets so you can stash things like change and your phone quickly.

4.  Go Hands Free

Wear a cross body bag so you’re not bogged down by a big satchel.  This will help keep you hands free for touching the merchandise and being an efficient shopper!

5.  Bring a scarf and hair tie.

A scarf will just be that added warmth when you’re outside or when you’re just a bit to hot for your jacket.  I know this seems super random but nothing is worse when you’re hairs all in your face when you’re fighting the shoppers and weather!   These two accessories are your must haves.
