Being Presidential In My First Lady Coat

Happy Presidents Day! I definitely am enjoying my long weekend which included lots a errands, a birthday party, a night out for pasta and mini golf, a trip to Old Sac and taking in a movie.  While our mini golf outing there’s always a bit of smack talk, as I was wearing my new pretty Avon Lilly Coat, I was being chanted at “Your up first lady!”  Thinking about it, my coat does kinda look presidential!

Avon Lilly Coat

Avon Lilly Coat

The Avon Lily Coat is part of the he Modern Southern Belle collection.  They combined the vibrant hues of the azaleas in Savannah’s Forsyth Park and the sunny blues from Carolina skies with ruffled details to create ladylike prints in contemporary silhouettes.  The tweed Lily Coat with butterfly print lining is the perfect layering piece and transitional coat from winter to spring.

This is one of those pieces that will not only see good use because of its functionality but you will have it for years with its classic style and unique beautiful blue coloring.  Just look at this stunning butterfly lining!  I immediately thought of Easter in PA.  As much as we want Easter to be springy and beautiful it usually is kinda cold so this would be the PERFECT topper!

The detailing on this jacket justifies the price tag.  But if you are interested only smalls, 2x and 3x left.  If you are a medium I think you can get away with the small.  Shop quick before it sells out at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Dressing Like A First Lady With The Right Accessories

In the wake of the election there’s no denying there’s always been a slight fascination with the presidential first family especially the First Ladies for us ladies.  Let’s be real though, Michelle’s arms don’t help our economy, Hillary’s hair does not dictate our foreign policy and Jackie O’s sunglasses don’t shield us from war however I have no problem obsessing over it all and they will always be a bit of a fashion icon.  So in honor of their chic lady like style here’s my red white and blue election day look.

The key is in the accessories!  A skater dress lays out the perfect canvas.  I personally find this navy jersey dress from Loft outlet to be perfect.  By itself this dress is not nearly as exciting or flattering but add a wide belt from White House Black Market and you have a fit and flare style highlighting all the right places.  Pile on the right accessories and you’ve bumped the dress from common to presidential!  That and maybe my Jackie O influenced Marc Jacobs sunglasses…

The spotlight of this look is the Over Ice necklace ($30) from mark.  It has that 60’s appeal but made modern.  The chunky hematite chain makes this necklace wearable with a casual sweater or your best LBD.  Also from mark are the Star Studded Earrings ($14) and the Glove Story Gloves ($24).  Gloves are having a major moment right now worn with everything from your parka to your chic office wear and these red genuine leather version are the perfect price, quality and style!  They kinda hide my watch and navy and rhinestone bracelet but I love it when they peek out!  Last but not least… the red lips!  I also lined my eyes in blue and used white eyeshadow but you can’t see… anything to theme out the day I tell ya!
