The problem with fall new arrivals is it’s still summer!  Lucky for me the new fall arrivals from mark. have quite a few items you can wear now and later!  I’ve already highlighted how to update your beauty (see here) but as far as fashion my top pick is this mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress ($40).  It’s the perfect wear now, wear later item!

Easy dressing with a shirtdress

First, let me just tell you, as a working girl how important having a shirtdress in your wardrobe is.  Not only does it work for pretty much any occasion or situation but its SUPER easy to pull off.  Just slip it on and instantly be put together.  The versatility doesn’t stop there, you can pretty much wear it with any shoe from sandals to flats to pumps to boots!  (there’s where that wear now wear later comes in).  For transitional pieces jewel tones are a perfect pick like the emerald green in this mark. Everything Goes Shirtdress.

Mani Monday – St. Patrick’s Day

Somebody’s got a case of the Monday’s.  And that somebody is me.  In a bit of a St. Patty’s hangover… and since I don’t actually consume adult beverages its more of a fun hangover.  So it’s only fitting to post my fun St. Patty’s mani on this mundane Monday.

St.  Patty's Mani with Julep

St. Patty’s Mani with Julep

I’m not usually a fan of green on my nails, since they’re long I sometimes feel like greens and blues look gawdy but when I got my Julep Maven Box this month I KNEW green was SO going to happen.  I’m wearing Adrianna, the pastel green and Lucky the emerald and gold glitter.  I also added on the matte topcoat this month to my maven box so I used that over Adrianna.  Then of course what’s a festive mani without a festive ring!?!  Sporing my color-of-the-year emerald green ring from mark.  This is one of my all time favorite rings from mark. and perfect for adding a statement!  Shop the Serious Rock Ring ($18) at my eboutique: http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger I have to say I was really excited with the March offerings from Julep.  The theme was playful, sidewalk chalk colors, offering a wide range of pastels, perfect for spring!  To get the sidewalk chalk look they recommended adding the matte top coat.  This was my first venture with matte and I have to say I didn’t hate it.  It def showed the imperfections though, so next time I’ll have to try to be as close to perfect as I can and allow the proper amount of dry time.  Usually when I do my nails I sit still for like 2 min then I start back up and usually nick a few.

Also in my Julep Bombshell Box for March was the Rock Star hand cream.  This is what i was probably most excited about because my hands are a disaster!  I mean just look at my posts… you can see how old man winter has took a toll on them.  The Rockstar hand cream is certainly a rockstar!  I’ve noticed a difference in the extreme dry patches I have between my finger and my cuticles look a bit better too!  It claims to last through 2 hand washings and I can vouch it does!  I just need to stay on it and keep this bad boy on my hands!
