Mani Monday: Essie Fall 2019

It’s officially sweater weather with six limited edition nail polishes from Essie with the fall 2019 collection.  “It’s time to get back to your roots and explore the home grown countryside with the essie fall 2019 collection of six autumn nail polish shades. As the leaves begin to fall and the outside air becomes crisp – it’s official, it’s sweater weather. These limited edition nail polish shades are guaranteed to leave you on the bright cider.”

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie Fall 2019 Collection

Essie is one of my favorite nail brands partly because they do really good seasonal collections.  They build a color story that really represents a feeling, trend, season!  Because of that I decided to google the fall collection 2019 and I barely found any IRL’s, swatches, etc and I was a little shocked.  The ones I did find convinced me to head over to CVS and see what they had.  I intended only to pick up one shade but after seeing the colors, the theme, the names I couldn’t leave without at least 3.

My top picks:  Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

My top picks: Hay There, Sweater Weather, On The Bright Cider

The top 3 I picked were 3 colors I definiltey did not already have in my collection.  Hay There, a fall yellow, caught my eye first.  Its a perfect color to transition with.  On The Bright Cider, the color of apple cider, became a must-have for my Apple Hill fall outings.  Sweater Weather, a metallic green, which is the most out of my norm.  It was also the last bottle in this color at the store and from the reviews I read it was the one that everyone liked best so I grabbed it too.

With those names how can you not pick up one... or three!?

These 3 shades were my September mani colors.  Usually I stick to my pinks, berries, reds but I’m glad I got something out of my comfort zone.  Sweater Weather got the most compliments from strangers haha.  Its kinda alien, kinda fall, kinda shimmery.  I see Sweater Weather being a really fun color for Halloween too!  These 3, well the whole collection really, go so well with the fall trends… menswear, 70’s vibe, plaids, neutrals, marigold, denim… Now the question is do I need the other 3 shades from this collection!?  I really like the other three for all my other fall activities, visit to the pumpkin patch, friendsgiving, regular Thanksgiving, etc.  I think I just answered my own question 😉

Wear and Share Wednesday: Touch of Fall

Wear and Share Wednesday:  A Touch of Fall

Wear and Share Wednesday: A Touch of Fall

Fact:  It’s still officially summer.  The first day of fall isn’t until Monday, and it’s still going to be 90 degrees this weekend so even if I want to embrace fall early, it’s really only a touch of fall.  I think I’m so tired of the same sundresses I’ve been wearing all summer so I’m ready for a wardrobe refresh, even if its just a touch.  I have done some great back to school shopping and picked up a bunch of fall 2019 trends, but I can’t quite wear them all yet, so I need to add in a touch of fall where I can.

A touch of fall with camel accessories!

A touch of fall with camel accessories!

I achieved a touch of fall with camel accessories!  This fall color is not only classic but neutral and really anchors my LWD.   I’ve known I wanted a camel tote as my fall bag since the spring but I haven’t been able to find one until last week!  I scored this clearance find at TJ Maxx and it was EXACTLY what I was looking for.

New fall bag of my dreams!

New fall bag of my dreams!

Lucky for me my camel and tortoise double ring belt from Express came in right at the same time and nothing is better than matching your belt to your bag.  This white dress is from my Express Style Trial box and belting it gave it just the touch of fall I was craving.  Plus this LWD is really well made, lined and the perfect quality for transitioning from summer to fall.

LWD gets the fall treatment!

LWD gets the fall treatment!

You know what also arrived at the same time as my belt and new bag purchase… my Avon order!  Which included this beautiful camel faux leather strap watch and this leaf bracelet that look amazing stacked together.  I had this bag/watch combo going in my dreams since I saw this watch in person at our conference 6 weeks ago!  These two are launching soon but as a rep I get them a few weeks early.

Obsessories!

Obsessories!

I’ve been obsessed with these white slides from Shoedazzle.  They actually have a camel sole so they work perfectly for this late summer look.  As we head more into fall and it drops down to the 70s 😉 I can switch out these slides for these snakeskin booties and I have an even deeper fall look. You can already see how I’m working in these booties and that animal print trend for late summer in my last post (see here).

Obsession + Accessories = Obsessories

Obsession + Accessories = Obsessories

Wear and Share Wednesday has a lot of new fall pieces I’m loving!  Pieces that are functional for the weather, and fashionable for the fall.  What are you wearing these last few days of summer!?

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You’re Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

What To Wear To Thanksgiving When You Are Attending

Are you hosting or attending a Thanksgiving dinner this year? If you are an easy going attendee then picking out an outfit is a little more fun and less strategic. My suggestion, the ever so popular sweater dress! It looks polished, put together but is oh so cozy and comfy. My pick is the Avon Elena Sweater Dress.

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Avon Elena Sweater Dress $39.99

Why is the Elena Sweater Dress my pick?  Well, first off its black so instantly chic, and flattering. Its also a straight fitting shape, not tight so you can eat and sit and lounge and still be totally fine.  Like I said, it’s cozy and comfy and that’s what fall is all about!  It’s also $39.99 so super affordable.

Cute and Comfy Sweater Dress

Embellished Details

Plus the Elena Sweater Dress comes pre-glammed with these fun rhinestone details.  No necklace required!  Just layer on some cute bracelets like these Avon Pearly Jet Stretch Bracelets.  I also added the Avon Sterling Silver Onyx rings for a little more glam.

Easy Thanksgiving Look

To make it holiday ready I really like it paired with these Marc Fisher red booties and red plaid bag from Guess.  Of course it needed to be paired with a mega shiny red lip, the mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Glamour.  What I like about the lip paint for Thanksgiving is it has some serious staying power and is a bright red.

God Save The Queen

God Save The Queen

God Save The Queen

I have 5 ways to save the queen… and by save the queen I mean wear this on-trend graphic tee! This mark. God Save the Queen tee features a stretchy semi fitted heather grey tee with black embellished Queen silhouette.  For Wear and Share Wednesday here’s 5 ways we’re wearing this tee!

1. Casual Chic with Millennial Pink

Word Yo!  My look in the tee

Alicia Saves The Queen!  

For a casual chic look that works on warmer days I paired the tee with a casual lace up skirt in millennial pink (Express) and some embelished slides Express).  I also added my favorite statement earrings the Avon Cafe Chic Tassel Earrings.

2.  Jeans and a Tee

Sheray Saves The Queen

Sheray Saves The Queen

Sheray’s jeans and tee look is way more fun with the embellishment on this tee and her funky Avon Modern Geo Statement Necklace.  I just LOVE the pairing for a fun take on the oh so easy to wear, jeans and tee combo.

3.  Boots and Denim Jacket

Ann Save's The Queen

Ann Saves The Queen

Ann sports every girl’s fall uniform, boots and a denim jacket.  Pairing this combo over the God Save the Queen Tee keeps you seasonal and functional.  Also currently available, her jacket:  mark. Nomad Denim Jacket;  and boots:  Avon Cushion Walk Buckled Riding Boot

4.  Casually Glam

Natasha Saves The Queen

Natasha Saves The Queen

Natasha casually glams up her tee with a pair of statement earrings (mark. Primrose Pearl Dangle Earrings) and a glam red lip!  Just like Natasha, this look is so casually glam, and mega wearable!

5.  Back In Black

Nevonda Saves The Queen

Nevonda Saves The Queen

Nevonda channels her dark queen by pairing it with all black.  Black jeans, black boots, black tote all with a little interest to make things, well, interesting.

Yaassss Queen*

*note I hate that phrase but oh so fitting and trendy, you know, like this trendy fitted t-shirt…

First Monday of Fall

First Monday of Fall

First Monday of Fall

Today is the first official Monday of fall. It’s also Mani Monday, Makeup Monday, Man Crush Monday, and Meatless Monday. So that means today is Fall Mani Monday, Fall Makeup Monday, Fall Man Crush Monday and Fall Meatless Monday… right?

Mani Monday:  Avon Gel 7 in 1 Polish in Glimmer

Mani Monday: Avon Gel 7 in 1 Polish in Glimmer

Mani Monday:  This weekend I had an exciting Sat night staying in and binging Marriage at First Sight by myself. Yep, you heard.  So I figured I might as well do my nails.  I wanted a fall-ish shade that would still go with my hot weather outfits.  Avon Gel Finish 7 in 1 Nail Polish in Glimmer.  (last seen here)  It’s more of a bronzy gold so fitting for the fall harvests!

Fall Lip Of The Week:  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Marvelous

Fall Lip Of The Week: mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Marvelous

Makeup Monday:  Today I pulled out my mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Mauvelous and I’m just loving it as my everyday fall lip shade.  It’s super on trend and really goes with the fall vibes, and also so comfortable to wear.

Fall Wedding Vibes

Fall Wedding Vibes

Man Crush Monday:  Man crush everyday is the husband, but fall is his jam.  He’s an October baby, our anniversary is in Oct and we’re about to take a little fall holiday vaca to Universal Studios so let’s get excited!

Free Espira Energy

Free Espira Energy

Meatless Monday:  On the menu today, cabbage soup! (I use this recipe)  I’m trying to get things more aligned as I have to start wearing pants again.  (oooh summer dresses I’m going to miss you…).  This week I prepped cabbage soup for a little crash diet along with fresh fruits, fresh veggies, whole foods and the boost system from Espira.  Which is currently on promotion with a FREE bottle of Espira Natural Energy with any $40 Espira purchase at www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Either way I’m welcoming fall as a time to refresh and revive.  It may still be 93 degrees out today, but Hello Fall!

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!!”

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.

 

You can view all the fashion and jewelry pieces here.

 

 

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!?
