Crazy For Coral – Part 2!

Punxsutawney Phil has declared early Spring!!!  Besides the fact that the Groundhog’s Day theme music is now playing in my head I’m right there with Phil on bringing in Spring early this year!  If you recall I already shared how I’m using coral to brighten up the face, now its time for the wardrobe.  I’m SO over heavy tweeds, bulky sweaters and everything winter so a breath of fresh spring air is just what I need!

First step in bringing in spring, is adding in color!  I busted out my fav tee from Target and added in the bright coral Great Shapes Necklace ($22) from mark.  It’s still jacket weather but this grey faux leather jacket definitely lightens up things from your winter wool coat, AND The Little Big Of An Edge Jacket ($49.99) is on clearance right now at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  A metallic bag like this Always Perfect Tote from mark. lightens things up too!

That same coral Great Shapes Necklace ($22) really pops against a LBD.  Add the Great Shapes bracelet ($24) and you got yourself some bright baubles!  This LBD, The Modern Classic Dress ($29.99) is one of my ALL TIME favorites from mark.  It’s a 3/4th sleeve and thick jersey material so you instantly feel lighter and more spring like but its enough to keep you warm.  You know what’s even better… its on clearance too for only $29.99!!!  Also, spend $20 at my eboutique and get that killer faux ostrich bag for ONLY $25!  So that means you can get this full look the necklace, the bracelet, the dress, and bag for ONLY $100.99!  Which also qualifies you for FREE shipping at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger AND a FREE Valentine’s Day Gift Bundle!  (see below)

Be a little bolder with your coral like with this Top Of The List Blouse ($28) from mark.  This blouse is great for its every-skin-tone-flattering shade and easy fit, you can easily wear it casually or dress it up like I did!  Pair it with a lace pencil skirt and that same Hot To Handle bag from above… and you got yourself an anything but winter outfit!  And let me tell you, the Hot To Handle bag is the perfect transition-to-spring bag!  It’s so luxe, fits everything you need and adds some sophistication to your outfits… and for $25 how can you not!?!  Both the Top Of The List Blouse and Hot To Handle Bag are new arrivals at my eboutique, shop all the new arrivals at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
