Meet Mademoiselle Mistie

Meet Mademoiselle Mistie!  She’s the darling face of the real representatives you see on the cover of the Avon Brochure and modeling our Fall For Paris collection.  I first “met” Mistie in the bloggersphere as a fellow WordPress blogger stalking and liking each others posts.  You can follow her blog, Mistie’s Musing’s, here!  Mistie has a keen sense of style since day one, which you can see if you follow her live vids, etc… I’m always getting ideas from her, especially as a fellow hot weather resident she gives great reviews!  That is why its no surprise I asked her for a little commentary on the Fall For Paris fashion collection she so exclusively got to be a part of.

Meet Madelmoiselle Mistie


 

On her favorite look from the collection:  “When I very 1st got to the shoot they put me in this outfit and I absolutely fell in love with it! I’m a big lover of graphic tees and this one super comfy & super chic! Unfortunately I wasn’t photographed in it, but Julie was and it looks amazing on her!!”

Meet Mademoiselle Heather

Bonjour Monsieur, Bonjour Mademoiselle!  Meet Mademoiselle Heather!  I was first introduced to her via her IG by fellow friendly face, Erica.  Back then it was full of pictures of nachos with a few Avon and mark. items thrown in, now it has way more selfies than nachos, but someone who likes nachos and selfies is worth getting to know!  Heather is a fellow Avon Lady from Oregon, who’s wit shines through her social media and blog (Hopelessly Heather).  Heather represents her lady like side with her real life reviews of fashion and more importantly on a ton of jewelry!  Which is why I wanted to bring in the jewelry expert to share her take on the new jewelry from the Fall For Paris collection from Avon, and she did not disappoint!

Meet Mademoiselle Heather 


What would you do if you won an entire collection of Paris inspired jewelry? Have a fashion shoot, right?! Throw on your scarves and hold on to your berets while I take you along a bit of my fashion shoot of Avon’s Fall for Paris jewelry line…and some of their clothing!

1: A classic Parisian look featuring the Mila Dress accessorized with the Choker Necklace and Stud Earring Trio (I picked the clusters) from the Diamondesque line and Gunmetal Coil Bracelet from the Contemporary Beads Collection. The dress is a beautiful herringbone tweed in a neutral grey with an adorable ruffle along the hem – a very feminine, but not girly, touch. What I love most about this dress is its flexibility to dress it up for a night out or sensibly for work and just about any other occasion you can imagine. Accessories alone set the tone for this piece



2. For several days before this fashion shoot, I repeatedly dreamt about one specific shot – and this is it! 

3. This structured LBD is in a deliciously thick ponté fabric that looks summery, but is definitely built for fall! If you’re into the fun graphic mod look from the 60s, then the Modern Geo Collection is totally your bag! I didn’t have the heart to break up the set, so I wore the Statement Necklace, Drop Earrings and Stretch Bracelet to complete the overall look.

4. Still in the LBD from above but I swapped out the jewelry pieces and opted instead for the Maroon Necklace (minus the earrings from the set) and Metro Maroon Watch from the Contemporary Beads Collection as well as the Goldtone Stud Earrings from the Celestial Spirits Collection. It’s impossible to showcase in a photo just how sparkly the necklace is – such a stunning piece!

5. Still in the LBD from above with the skinny rectangles from the Diamondesque Stud Earring Trio and the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Necklace that I looped around my neck to give it a layered look – one of my favorite tricks to shorten a long necklace and quasi-satisfy my longtime lust for chokers.

6. I switched things up with the super shimmery Madeline Asymmetrical Tee – a thin (but not sheer) fabric that’s a perfect weight for the end of summer! This tee looks like a party but feels like a comfy night in – the best of both worlds! The Gunmetal Contemporary Beads Collection Necklace (again, minus the matching earrings from the set) and Hoop Earrings from the Diamondesque Collection finish off the look by adding more glitz to the mix!

7. Still in the tee from above I went a completely different direction with the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Bracelet and Celestial Spirits Drop Earrings – this look screams New Orleans French Quarter to me…all I need is a crystal ball or tarot cards to complete the picture! All kidding aside, the most surprising jewelry piece I received were these earrings – they are so much more amazing in person than the stock photo in the brochure gives them credit for!

8. Still in the tee from #6 above I stuck to the Celestial Spirits Collection showing off its Orbit Pendant Necklace and Goldtone Stud Earrings (again).

9. I opted to put two showstoppers together for this look because I just had to find an excuse to break out the leopard print Kamila Coat! This piece is probably the piece I’m most excited about owning – I’m chomping at the bit to be able to wear this for real…it’s a surprisingly heavy coat! Dangling from my ears are the Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Earrings – an early favorite of mine that deserves to be showcased without a competing necklace!

10. The Modern Geo Collection: Statement Necklace, Drop Earrings and Stretch Bracelet

11. Diamondesque Collection Necklace and Earring Set

12. Celestial Spirits Collection: Moon Pendant Necklace and Drop Earrings

13. Deep Red Autumn Romance Collection: Pendant Necklace, Stud Earrings and Drop Earrings; Celestial Spirits Collection: Orbit Pendant Necklace, Goldtone Stud Earrings and Black Locket; Modern Geo Collection Linear Earrings; Maroon Contemporary Beads Collection: Necklace (earrings from the set not pictured) and Metro Maroon Watch

14. Diamondesque Collection: Hoop Earrings and Flex Bracelet; Café Chic Collection Tassel Statement Earrings; Pearly Parisian Collection Fringe Necklace; Gunmetal Contemporary Beads Collection: Necklace (earrings from the set not pictured) Coil Bracelet and Modern Mesh Strap Watch

15. Café Chic Collection: Long Tassel Necklace and Drop Earrings

16. Pearly Parisian Collection: Statement Necklace, Fringe Earrings and Layered Bracelet

Are you ready to visit the Eiffel Tower yet? I know I am!

Fall For Paris

Fall For Paris

Paris is always a good idea right? While I fuel up the private jet, I’ll lust over the new Fall For Paris fashion, jewelry and home collection from Avon.  This limited edition collection just launched today at my eBoutique and my wish list is already a mile long.  Parisian influenced this collection is sophisticated, from the design to the color pallet with a lot of versatility.  There’s a special place in my heart for all things french! (shout out to Melle, Nicki, crepes, eclairs, and French Disney Singalongs!)

Not only is the Parisian inspired fashion a really well done collection of wear now wear later pieces perfect for fall shopping, it’s also modeled complete by real women, real representatives.  August is Avon Rep appreciation month so why not feature our best asset in the brochure, our reps!  Plus you can get a better view of what they actually look like on real bodies.

Don’t forget Avon home Autumn Romance Collection!  I’m equally lusting over these home accents !  I think they are very modern while still being sophisticated.  The colors add just enough warmth as we transition into fall.  Plus can’t you see these all being in that cool girl’s digs!?

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

“Do you remember the 21st night of September?  Love was changing the minds of pretenders.  While chasing the clouds away”… who doesn’t sing a little Earth Wind and Fire come September?  September is kinda like a re-fresh with everything back to school and fall-tastic, so here’s my picks on what to refresh your September with and only spending $100 because let’s face it all these fun fall activities add up!

Mid Month Makeover - $100 To Update Your September

Mid Month Makeover – $100 To Update Your September

mark. Sweat Equity Dress $40 – So this is a deep dark navy sweatshirt dress with a textured houndstooth pattern… why is it my top pick?  Not just because it’s houndstooth but it’s a super versatile item for September.  Wear it as a dress as the weather still a little warm with a suede sandal, a flat or a pair of chucks for weekend.  Then as it cools down switch to a bootie or boot and as it gets even colder layer it with leggings or tights or even a collard shirt for a tailored look.  All while being extremely soft and comfy in a sweatshirt dress!  Navy is a little more chic and unexpected from your normal black, but because it’s so dark it will look really nice paired against black.

mark. sweat equity dress

mark. Buckled In Tote $44 – Everyone needs a good fall bag and basic black is always a good decision.  I like this one because it’s big enough to fit everything you need to go from work to weeked and can even double as a travel bag while still not being TOO big.  It rests easy on the shoulder, has a crucial functional zip pocket on the outside  and fun details with the buckles.  Plus the material is really easy to clean.

mark. buckled in tote

mark. buckled in tote

mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Bars $16 – Just like switching up your wardrobe you need to switch up your makeup for the fall too.  You’re coming off of your summer glow so the warm bronzes, golds and peaches in this set are prefect.  Plus it’s a multitasker, one product for eyes, bronzer and highlighter and will pair perfectly with a fall lip no matter if you go berry, vampy or nude.  See how to use this product to strobe here and a golden look here.

mark. All Bundled Up FREE with a $45 purchase (a $30 value) – Now through Sept. 17th you can bet a mark. All Bundled Up Set FREE with your purchase so if you buy the items above you’ll get this, which is the perfect fall switch up for your scent.  Check my review here.

So we have the mark. Sweat Equity dress at $40, the Buckled In Tote for $44 and the Touch and Glow Shimmer Bars at $16, hitting $100 on the dot with a FREE gift of the All Bundled Up!  However, if you have some extra wiggle room my next pick is some fall booties!  I really like the matching bootie to the Buckled In Tote the mark. Right In Step Booties, you’ll see this shape on everyone this fall!  You can shop all the items at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger as well as all the new fall arrivals to update your September!

Trending Tuesday: October Inspo

Hello October!

Hello October!

If the world of alicia was the internet #october would totally be trending.  October will now forever hold a little special place in my heart. It is now my anniversary, the mr.’s birthday, football, perfect fall weather, pumpkin patches, halloween and the start to the holiday season!  All these are what inspire my October!

Our 1st Anniversary

10.04.14

10.04.14

I can’t believe it’s been a year already!  We started October off right with a trip to wear it all began, Lake Tahoe.  We were married lake front on Oct. 4th and it was a beautiful day!  I haven’t shared much of it on here so this month I’ll be sure to post a little recap, and my wedding must haves and failures.

October Color Pallet

October Color Pallet Inspo

October Color Pallet Inspo

My wedding colors were black and white with pops of red (fall red as I called it) and lace.  True, lace isn’t a color, but with all my color pallets I need a pattern too.  So it’s more my wedding theme not just my wedding colors!  This October I’ll be wearing this same pallet.  Not only is it special personally to me it also really works for this time of year.  Black and white always works but more so right now as you transition your warmer days clothing with your cool evenings clothing.  Red works as a great fall accent from fall equinox to Halloween!  Think vampires!  As with everything some stunning metallics and sparkles accent the theme perfectly too 🙂

Fun Fall Events

Pumpkin Patch-ing!

Pumpkin Patch-ing!

October is the perfect time for visiting breweries/Oktoberfests, pumpkin patches, apple orchids, football games and all those outdoor fun fall events!  We’ll be celebrating the Mr.’s birthday at a brewery this year and every weekend is a reason to have a mini party/tailgate… football!  If you live in Nor Cal my favorite place this time of year is Apple Hill.  A string of apple orchids and farms located in the foothills is the perfect place to inspire your October events.  So pull out your boots and favorite fall scarf and plan some fall fun!

Trick Or Treat

What is October without Halloween!?  I love pulling out my Halloween decorations because I know it’s the start of the holiday season.  I just love when things get a little more magical!  And pumpkin carving, I love pumpkin carving!  As I get older it’s a little harder to find a good Halloween party to go to but I did already buy my caped tee from Wal-Mart as my work costume at the very least… I don’t care if no one else dresses up, you better believe I’m going to find a way to theme out my Halloween!

Wear and Share Wednesday around the mark. Go For Baroque Necklace

You might of already got a sneak peek at this look on the mark. girl official facebook page and pinterest (or my own facebook page and pinterest) but when asked to wear mark. our way, we said, EASY!  Jackie from Living After Midnight and I have been doing it from the start and bringing it your way with our Wear And Share Wednesday posts!  So this week we planned both our outfits around the mark.

Wear It My Way – Go For Baroque Necklace

We already know that in the world of alicia #blackandgold is trending hardcore so when planning an outfit around this necklace you know I went full on black and gold!  I started with the mark. Gilded Glam Pant ($32 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).  These are basically a super comfy black leggings with a gorgeous gold sheen.  Seriously, these are going to be your go to for the holiday season, comfy warm and still know how to party!  (and they’re substantial in fabric so you can wear them as real pants) You can dress them up or down… like here I elected to make my outfit more casual with an off the shoulder tee with gold button detailing from The Limited.  A big shout out to the bff Nicki who gifted me this perfect wardrobe staple for my birthday!  She knows what’s up!

Because I was going with a more easy look and really wanted to feature this mark. Go For Baroque Necklace I didn’t need much else in the accessories department.  I’m wearing my peeptoe booties from Steve Madden (old, but try the Modern Peep Toe Bootie from Avon) and the mark. Oh Couture Handbag ($38 at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger) and simple green and gold studs from the mark.

What I’m really loving about the mark. Go For Baroque Necklace is its amazing detailing.  This guy is really all you need for your holiday looks.  Pair it with a tee like I did or your favorite sweater or blouse, it really goes with everything!  Like how Jackie paired with a colorful printed dress which is totally opposite of my white tee.  I really like this look for Thanksgiving, it’s casually luxe!  I think I’ll repeat this for my night out before Thanksgiving…. turkey eve!  The biggest night of the year to go out 🙂  Only I for sure will need a jacket, maybe the mark. All Good Points Jacket (last seen here!) or even a cute leather (or faux leather) jacket.

So You Wanna Be A Wrap Super Star…

Trends come and go but classic shapes are always in fashion.  Take the wrap dress… one of those cuts that look good on pretty much everyone.  I mean Diane von Furstenberg isn’t a fashion icon for nothing! mark. did thier take on the wrap dress for this fall.

mark. Wrap Star Dress $36

mark. Wrap Star Dress $36

It’s a true wrap dress in a printed knit material. They took the classic shape and made it modern with the red and purple print. The 3/4th sleeves and comfy knit fabric make it perfect for fall and transiting weather. As it gets cooler pair it with mark.’s Do The Tights Thing (set of 2 $) esp in the purple color!

Wrap Dress Full Look

Wrap Dress Full Look

Since the pattern is so bold sleek and simple accessories round out the full look.  My baubles include the mark. Long and Short of It Necklace ($20), Smoke and Mirrors Earrings ($20) and Vintage Violet Stretch Ring ($18).  The Straight Up Sassy Heels ($40), are a classic black pump with a not so classic snakeskin heel and the Modern Square Bag ($34) finished off the look.

Modern Square Bag $34

Modern Square Bag $34

Can I tell you how much I’m in love with this Modern Square Bag.  So lady like, so modern, such luxe detailing… mark. SO got this one right.  The best part of it all is that its a great small bag that actually FITS what you need!  The sides expand to hold the necessities way better than a clutch and with an adjustable strap so you can wear it as a shoulder bag, cross body or even tuck them in and use as a clutch.

The dress, jewelery, shoes and bag all are now available for purchase at my eboutique:  http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

Transition into Fall With Jewel tones – Amethyst

Why hello official first day of fall!  Though you wouldn’t really guess it since its still hot like a mo fo out… which I’m not complaining about AT ALL!  But that does make transitioning into fall a little difficult since it is still so warm out.  Easiest way to do that is with jewel tones!  They flatter just about everyone and easily mesh with your basics.  So let’s do a little series on transitioning into fall with jewel tones.  First up, Amethyst!

am·e·thyst  (m-thst)

n.

1. A purple or violet form of transparent quartz used as a gemstone.
2. A purple variety of corundum used as a gemstone.
3. A moderate purple to grayish reddish purple.

(source)

I’ve always been a fan of the amethyst gemstone and not just because its my mom’s and bestie’s birthstone but just because its naturally super pretty.  Purple is also a color of royalty so who doesn’t want to be a little more royal!?!

Full On Amethyst

Full On Amethyst

My favorite way to incorporate amethyst… full on!  Go with a solid dress in amethyst.  I personally like this jersey dress from mark. because its light enough for summer heat but the color is so rich!  Its shape is super flattering and makes a great canvas for accessories.  I paired it with fall friendly belts, a statement ring and gold jewelry.  Its great for late summer as well because the all over color still puts your mind in fun summer mode.

Dress:  Very Vintage dress (mark – in and out of sale, contact for more details).  Belts:  In A Cinch Belts ($18 mark. – set of 3 in black snakeskin and orange)  Ring:  Vintage Violet Stretch Ring ($18 mark.)  Necklace:  Power Of Change Necklace ($28 mark. – set of 2)  Nailpolish:  Essie Superbossnova ($8 essie.com)  All these mark. items can be found at my eboutique:  http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com

If you’re not the full on amethyst type of gal than go for pops of amethyst.  For some fall flavor pair your amethyst with your grey or navy!  Such as an amethyst top with your grey slacks or a navy pencil skirt.  Or if you’re more daring it looks exceptional with yellow or teal, and even more daring put it with pink!  If you just want a pop of amethyst then I highly recommend the Vintage Violet Stretch ring mentioned above with your favorite purple shade of nail polish!  Plus vintage design will go beautifully with the art deco trend you’ll be seeing all fall and winter!

Vintage Violet Stretch Ring $18

Vintage Violet Stretch Ring $18

Ps.  don’t mind my keys in my hand or the hot coral pink nail polish!
