A Vintage Holiday with Heather and Alicia

I hope everyone had an excellent Thanksgiving enjoying the holiday with friends and family all while looking fab.  One thing about the holidays, is that magical feeling you get from the nostalgia. I love a holiday tradition, applying my old and making new ones.  Heather and I are trying to share those vibes today with a little vintage holiday.  Vintage is not only super on trend, and a theme perfect for gifting for all ages, but its also a way to capture those warm and fuzzies.

Getting ready for holiday events is half the fun.  Everyday I use a body lotion because if I forget to put on perfume I at least have a fragrant layer.  A vintage inpspired makeup look is perfect for the holidays, a neutral eye, winged liner and a red lip.  PERFECT.  Topped  off with some jewelry whatever you’re wearing feels as special as the day.  For my neutral eye I’ve been loving the So Gorgeous Eye Palette.  For my holdiay red lip I’m loving the Avon Iconic Lipstick in crimson carnation.  Not only is it the perfecto holiday red, its also in a fun vintage inspired metal tube that feels just as special pulling it out and using it.

I usually like to pull vintage vibes when I’m wearing all black, its a way to take your basics from being boring to being the bee’s knees!  Pop of red, pop of sparkly and I’m holiday ready.  Not only do I personally like to wear this look I think it would make a great gift idea.  You could do the Sparkling Vanilla Champaign bath and body collection with the So Gorgeous Eye Palette and an Iconic lipstick for a gift that works well after the new year.  Bump it up with some jewelry or those adorable bubble baths in the cute cat bottles for even bigger gift.  (see Heather’s Vintage Holiday below)

“Whether you want to add a little vintage glam, a sprinkle of whimsy, or go full retro for the holidays, Avon’s got you!  Everything old is new again–or at least cool again–so tease that hair, wing that eyeliner, and jump into the hip and happening trend this season

Start by taking a luxurious bubble bath with Prim and Prissy to keep you company.  After drying off, spray on a layer of the Sparkling Vanilla Champagne Body Mist to be that hint of a fragrance in the room everyone asks about.

Crack open the Classic Glam A Box to line those eyes in smoke and brush on some mascara that will stay put throughout the entire day, no matter what you do.  Pick your favorite lip color from three classic shades in the Iconic Lipstick line and make sure to carry it with you in your clutch–these tubes are a work of art in and of themselves!  Accessorize with your jewelry pieces of choice–there are TONS of pieces to choose from to suit your particular taste, but make sure to add the Iconic Collectible Wreath Pin to your coat lapel or scarf to top it off with seasonal style.  And don’t forget that hostess gift: the 2019 Vintage Inspired Pewter Ornament is sure to delight and you won’t be bringing a double!”  – Heather

Trending Tuesday: Urban Safari

If the world of alicia was the internet #urbansafari would totally be trending.  Mix a little safari, with a little bit modern, a touch of tropical, and a tinge of uptown and you get yourself some #urbansafari.  Here’s what’s been inspiring me for the urban safari trend.

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.

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!

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.

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.
