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.

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)

Winning gold is Simone’s ombre red white and blue glitter liner!  Winning silver would be our female swimmers with their killer red white and blue manis!  Besides killing it in the pool I’ve noticed all their nails at all the events!  Finally, coming in for bronze would be Gabby’s deep plum lipstick!  Super unexpected, super awesome!

Week O’Nautical – White As A Sail

With the 4th falling on a Wednesday it really makes working on a Tuesday tough!  Helping me get through it is my Tuesday nautical look that pulls double duty!  A crisp lwd for work translating into play for some pre-4th activities.

Taking a LWD Nautical

Taking a LWD Nautical

This little white dress is a stiff cotton, somewhat reminiscent of a sail to me, which makes it automatically nautical.  It’s old from BeBe but you can recreate the look with a white full skirt and a white scoop neck tee tied off with a satin ribbon as a belt.  Then finish it off with nautical accessories!  You know how i mentioned I got that rope necklace in blue too in yesterday’s post, well here it is!  Doesn’t it just make this outfit nautical!  My other accessories include my new FAVORITE bag, the For Shore Bag from mark.  Its huge but lays well and perfect for summer in white with shiny gold accents, which also add to my nautical feel.  Also from mark. there’s of course my go to Borrowed From The Boys watch, Pretty Stellar Ring and Heat Wave Hoops (blue pair).  The shell bracelet is old from Cookie Lee.  This is one of those times I wish my patent red peeptoe pumps weren’t in desperate need of the cobbler, so instead I wore my light grey peeptoes with bright red toes by Essie in Too Too Hot!  The perfect summer red from last years summer collection by Essie.

You can actually see my earrings here, which can I say, these Heat Wave Hoops Set from mark. have been my summer go to!  They make a t-shirt and shorts instantly put together!  My camera isn’t great for representing my makeup look but went with bronzy cheeks, navy eyes and coral lips!

For face I used Bronze Pro and Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes from mark.

For my eyes I used the Mini Mark. It Stick in Pink Opal from mark. as my base.  In my crease I used a matte navy shade from Revlon… BUT mark. is coming out with a whole slew of new i-mark shades including a matte navy!  Starting July 13th you’ll be able to get them early through me… so stay tuned!  I then lined my upper lashes with No Place To Run in Indigo followed with a thin line of liquid liner, Get In Line in Painted Black.  Curled my lashes with the mark. eyelash curler and Lash All You Want mascara.

For my lips I used Glow Baby Blow hook up lipgloss in m.powerment peach, which is currently on clearance at my eboutique for only $1.99!!!
