This look is still holiday-tastic but different in the bright teal color.  In Nor Cal its been in the high 60’s so I can go bare legged and jacket less but if your in a cooler climate this would look just as chic with black tights and a cute black jacket!  You can get this total look, dress, heels (now on clearance for 17.99!!!), Deco Jewelry Set (get them all for only $45!) all at my eBoutique:  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.

First Lady Like Look

First Lady Like 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…

Lady Like Accessories highlighting the Over Ice Necklace

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!

What Scent Should You Be Wearing?

meet mark fragrances

Which scent are you?

Picking a fragrance is a difficult thing, but it’s also one of those things that instantly sparks up the spirit and just make you feel more beautiful.  Picking a fragrance from online/magalog that you haven’t even smelled first… that’s just ludicrous!  Or is it?

This month, mark. included a little quiz to help you find a scent that matches your personality.  I’m taking it one step further… Fill out the quiz online (see link below), include your email and mailing address.  I’ll confirm which fragrance matches your personality and then I’ll send you a FREE fragrance sampler.  The sampler will include your match scent, but also all the others so you can test those out too!  Also included in the sampler will be a coupon for purchasing (before January 26th, 2012) and free gift voucher!

Take the quiz online to determine which scent you should be wearing:  https://docs.google.com/spreadsheet/viewform?formkey=dHZfWWoxdWVrV1JNZTEtN2p4TzNhS1E6MQ

I’m a huge fragrance fan.  I personally enjoy all 3 of these depending on the mood, and for that price I can afford to be “moody.”  Some folks like to have a “signature” scent but there’s just too many good scents for that to be my policy.  As with all fragrance the best way to get it to last all day is to layer, like with matching body cream or oil, but there’s no shame in spritzing a few more sprays mid day to instantly boost your mood.  Part of my new year’s resolution (if you want to call it that) is to make sure I remember to wear my fragrance everyday.  I totally always forget as I rush out the door in the morning, but I was smart and brought a bottle to work.  Also makes the mid-day spritz a bit easier.  Do you remember to put on fragrance?  What fragrances are your favorite?
