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!?

A Classy AF Thanksgiving

Not all holiday looks are all glitz and glam, some are just classy AF.  And what’s classier than a classic LBD!?  Sometimes just a classic black dress is all you need for your holiday looks!

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

Avon Chain-Detail Dress

No one needs to argue the power of a Little Black Dress but this Avon Chain-Detail Dress is a must have!  Not only is it a great year round dress in its crepe like fabric but its a great dress for the holidays too!  The best part about it, its only $16.99 at my eBoutique!

Removable Black Chain Detail

Removable Black Chain Detail

The dress features a removable black chain detail around the neckline so you don’t need a necklace. You could easily remove it and pair this dress with your favorite statement necklace.  For this classy af look, I went with a statement earring instead with the Avon Modern Pearlesque Tassel Earrings.  For the rest of my jewelry I went with a simple black watch (Michael Kors) and a simple sparkly bracelet (Avon Modern Glamour Jet Pave Stretch Bracelet).  On lips mark. Vinyl Pout Lip Paint in Glamour.  (could that be any more perfect of a name for this look!?)

Lip Of The Week: mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Cozy

If November was a lip shade name, Cozy would be it!  (Or Thankful)  But Cozy is my lip of the week, so cozy it is!  These liquid lipsticks from mark. are a fabulous formula (see review here) so I decided to pick up another shade, Cozy.  This light pink shade is a really easy neutral shade.  I see this looking killer with a warm smokey eye for Thanksgiving!

Wearing mark. Lip Paint in Cozy

I’ve been wearing this mark. Pout Vinyl Lip Paint in Cozy all week… minus Halloween where my lip of the day was Vamp for obvious reasons.  I really enjoy these vinyl shades, I love how saturated they are.  Extremely long wearing and comfortable.  Cozy, the light pink shade, is no exception.

What Is a Boot Skirt and Why You Need One

What is a boot skirt and why do you need one?

What is a boot skirt and why do you need one?

What is a boot skirt?  Basically a skirt you wear with boots, if that wasn’t obvious.  But let me tell you why you need one.  They typically are more A-line so that means more flattering.  They usually are of a thicker material like wool blends, stiff cotton, etc, which means perfect for the fall and winter.  You usually have two options, shorter and midi.  Both are cut at a length that shows off the boots but also works with proportions.  A shorter skirt will be cut a few inches above the knee but not a mini, and is the most versatile with what boots work with it.  I found the perfect boot skirt with the mark. Peek of Pleats Skirt.

Perfect Boot Skirt For Fall

Perfect Boot Skirt For Fall

The mark. Peek of Pleats skirt is the perfect shorter version.  It has that flattering a-line shape in a nice wool blend.  What makes this one stand out is its peek of chiffon pleats and wrap detailing.  Pleats are a huge trend for fall and the wrap draws the eye in making it even more flattering.

You can wear a boot skirt with everything from blouses to sweaters.  I paired this black mark. Peek of Pleats skirt with a striped ruffle sleeve sweater from White House Black Market.  I tucked it in but you could easily wear it untucked as well.

Pair it with a ruffle sleeve sweater!

What’s a boot skirt with out a killer pair of boots!  This season mod, white and ankle cut boots are huge trends which I accomplished with this pair from Shoedazzle.  However boot skirts are also designed to wear with tall boots, so bust out your favorite pair to wear with this skirt.

These boots were made for boot skirts!

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

What To Wear In Late Summer

As much as I’ll “never let go” of summer, late summer is kinda nice.  The transitioning weather allows for a refresh on the looks.  Can work in new fall trends, colors and staples, all while still embracing the last bits of summer.

What I'm wearing for late summer.

What I’m wearing for late summer.

Fall Trend:  Bell Sleeves.  Late Summer Wear Now: Cropped Sleeve in Light Flowy Fabric.

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Bell Sleeves For Wear Now Wear Later

Statement sleeves are not only a hot summer trend but a cool fall one as well.  So what’s better than a blouse that works for both!?  This Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon has a cropped sleeve making it perfect for transitioning weather and looks.  Choosing a fall trend in a lightweight fabric flowy fabric allows you more wear year round out of it.  Plus, the peep of lace at the top lightens it up too.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

Fall Trend:  Out Of The Ordinary Baubles.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Gold Chain Details.

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace

Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace and mark. Gleam With Pride Ring

A big trend in fall jewelry is out of the ordinary necklaces.  Your standard run of the mill statement necklace is not going to cut it, you need something legit.  “How ’bout some gold bracelets” or gold necklace if you will… thick gold chains and a unique pendant drop allow this necklace to stand out from the crowd.  Additionally, the bright gold is a perfect late summer metal, but this would look equally as chic worn with a simple black turtleneck or your favorite plaid top come fall.  The Avon Pink Hope Ribbon Power Necklace is part of the Breast Cancer Shop For The Greater Goods Shop at my eBoutique.  What makes it even more unique than it’s look, is that 20% of the proceeds go to support the Breast Cancer Crusade, which is in style year round!

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Embrace Big Gold Chains

Fall Color:  Jewel Tones.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Amethyst Blouse.

Avon Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse

By wearing brighter jewel tone now, like amethyst, vs a deep tone, like plum, allows you to keep your look more late summer.  I love this Lace Trim Bell Sleeve Blouse from Avon for the perfect wear now jewel toned shade.

Jewel Tones Now and Later

Fall Staple:  Jeans.  Late Summer Wear Now:  White Jeans.

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

White Deconstructed Jeans for Late Summer

It was a brisk mid 80’s so I was able to wear pants… like the first time since May.  These destructed white jeans from mark. are finally seeing some wear!  White jeans are the perfect way to create a late summer look, they brighten up those fall trends and colors.  Come later in the season, pair this exact look with your dark denim and boots for a true fall look.

Fall Staple:  Suede.  Late Summer Wear Now:  Pops Of Suede.

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote

Pop in some suede during late summer.  I’m wearing a suede fringed sandal from Steve Madden, and switched to my fall bag, a leather tote with suede pieced in.  The sandals are from last year but the tote is the new Avon Leather and Suede Whipstitch Tote.

Pops Of Suede For Late Summer

This is just one of those easy outfits for a lot of different occasions.  You can tweak it depending on what you got going on and as that true fall weather creeps in, but overall the perfect take on late summer.  You can shop my entire look at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  Be sure to take advantage of the newest A Box for only $10 with a $40 purchase!  And yes, I probably should of ironed my shirt instead of just pulling it out of my suitcase after a week.  Life, man, life.
