Trending Tuesday – Fall IT Color #camel

If the world of alicia was the internet then #camel would totally be trending.  This fall I’ve had a color crush on camel.  I’m not much of a brown person but camel is like it’s creamy cousin that looks excellent against that end of summer tan and your classic blacks and blues.  That’s why camel is totally trending in my world… if you couldn’t tell by my #1 camel pick, my camel colored bag that I’m OBSESSED with… and a few other camel inspirations…

A camel bag – My must have as of latemark. Neutral Territory Bag.  Big and structured so super effective!

A camel sweater – as sweater weather creeps in, there’s just something a bit regal about a camel sweater, it can be trendy or classic.  I was super inspired by Kelly Ripa today on Kelly and Michael in her thin gauge camel sweater and leather skirt!

A comforting camel – Fall is the start of all things cozy.  In the fall I always restock my triple wick candles and upgrade to fall scents in my bath and body and hand soaps.  I love a scent with a comforting caramel undertone.  Not quite a camel color but more a fall inspiration for my camel crush!

Red Hot Lip Color – mark. All Butter Now in Fired Up ($11).  This red is the perfect summer red.  Because the formula is more a nourishing balm you wouldn’t expect the color pay off to be so much but it’s amazing.

Week O’Nautical – Blue Slip Dress

Week O'Nautical - Slip Dress

Week O’Nautical – Slip Dress

Week O’Nautical looks are kicking off with a great blue slip dress!  What is more nautical than the many shades of blue in the ocean.  Blue is my favorite color so when I saw this mark. New Angled Slip Dress I knew it would be a good addition.  With the 90’s resurgence slip dresses are back in a big way.  Here’s how I styled a slip dress in a slightly nautical way.

This mark. New Angled Slip dress is the most beautiful shade of blue, making it perfect for nautical styling.  Besides it’s nice quality flowing fabric and a super easy style this dress is also REVERSIBLE!   The underside is a gorgeous ocean turquoise color, so it’s like 2 dresses in one!  For this Week O’Nautical look I wore the royal blue but check back for an upcoming look with the turquoise side.

For my curvy figure I needed to add a little shape, so I added this thin gold wrap belt (mark., old).  It was still loose enough to keep the flowy look of the dress but still gave me some shape to the slip dress.

A nautical look isn’t complete without it’s gold accessories which work beautifully with this blue.  Besides the belt I added the mark. Twice As Nice Necklace, Avon Signature Watch and Avon Smooth Sailing Charm Bracelet (coming next week to http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger).  The Avon Smooth Sailing Charm Bracelet is the ULTIMATE Week O’Nautical Accessory!

Monthly Edit – What To Buy In February

If you’re anything like me you constantly feel like you want to just go out and buy a whole new wardrobe, but don’t have the budget, or honestly, the closet space to do so.  But I do love new things and being strategic and smart on my purchases, so instead of going all out each season add few key items each month that expand on what you have and keep you trendy and feeling good!  I’ve already shared my must-haves for January, here’s my word on February picks!

 

A new pink lip color and multi-tasking shimmer pallet:

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me

Nothing is better than adding a little glow to pale winter skin.  Go with soft shades of pink and shimmer to perk up winter complexions.  mark. All Butter Now Lip Treat in Baby Me ($11) is an easy investment plus it wears like a balm so you prevent chapped lips while getting the perfect light pink shade!  Pair it with the mark. Touch and Glow Shimmer Cubes ($16) for a super easy look with a super versatile pallet.  Check out my look with it here.

A sparkly statement necklace:

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Chambray and mark. Clear Choice Necklace

Sick of wearing scarfs yet?  Try switching out a scarf with a sparkly necklace on those days when you’re not freezing!  Pair it with a chambray shirt for major impact that’s on trend and perfect for achieving the no- quite-spring-yet-look (as in with your leggings and boots).  mark. Clear Choice Necklace ($38) is the clear choice for this (see what I did there) and will work with your winter looks straight through to your summer looks!  {pic cred:  sealaura}

 

A spring scarf:

mark. Four Seasons Scarf

mark. Four Seasons Scarf (and wearing Baby Me on lips)

Not sick of wearing scarfs, then grab a new spring scarf in a lighter weight fabric and fun spring print.  I like the mark. Four Seasons Scarf ($18) because it’s super oversized!  I can wrap up in this baby and stay perfectly warm while wearing a print that just makes me spring-happy.  Plus this guy can transition into spring and summer not only as a scarf but also as a coverup for shoulder baring dresses (maybe during wedding season!?) or even at the beach!  Now that $18 seems even more appealing!

See how long this guy is!

See how long this guy is!

 

A new luxurious bath line:

mark. Naked Love

LOVE mark. Naked Love

Time to save winter skin and smell fresh for spring!  I can’t get over my excitement for the mark. Naked Love bath and body line.  This is probably my top pick (and favorite body line) in a long time.  Every time I lather up in the shower I’m immediately a little happier AND that gorgeous packaging makes me even more happy!  We’re over those deep scents from winter, but the notes of apricot nectar, white peaches, velvet freesia and skin musk are perfect for this time of year and beyond.  Whipped Up Body Butter is also super nourishing for winter skin.  It preps us for the upcoming skin-baring season.  This way, when those first few warm days hit we’ll be ready.

 

A chiffon layered top:

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt

It’s hard to shop for clothes in February because we’re SO over buying those dark bulky winter items but it’s not quite warm enough for all those new spring arrivals.  So stick with buying tops that can work with many types of bottoms and in soft shades that work for winter and spring.  I’m loving the mark. Sheer Brilliance Sweatshirt ($28) for these exact reasons.  I can pair this with jeans for a casual look, or dress it up with a skirt or slim fitting dress pants.  The chiffon layer really let’s you dress it up, plus it takes away some of the bulk but still gives you that layered look!  I’m also looking forward to wearing this guy with shorts on those warmer days… like a cute pair of white denim shorts would look amazing with this!

BONUS:  An on-clearance favorite!

February is the best time to shop winter clearance finds!  Some of my favorites from fall and holiday releases are now marked down super low!  Like this top, necklace, clutch, polish set and MORE!  (all on clearance at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger)

 

Final Word of Alicia:

None of these items will break the bank (like under $150 for all of them, ALL of them!) and are new and now for February and beyond.  I also love how I can pair them with my January top picks and breath some 2015 life into my 2014 (and older, yikes!) wardrobe.  It’s like a breath of fresh air!   If you can only budget 1 thing this month my pick is the mark. Naked Love bath and body set ($34.99 for 6 pieces).  You can shop the items here and get 20% off with promo code AVONFB20

Word Of Alicia Review: mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Fragrance

Scent is such a personal thing.  For me a certain scent can bring back major memories, instantly make me happy or at the other end of the spectrum gross me out or give me a headache.  Needless to say ordering a new scent online is almost a pointless activity. Unless you know what to look for.  Historically I like clean scents that are light and fresh.  Which is why for the past 4 years the favorite perfumes in my collection are all from the mark. Instant Vacation collections.  Knowing that I’ve liked so many of their past scents when mark. released the Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil fragrance duo I knew I was going to take a chance and order it without smelling it.  It did not disappoint.

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

mark. Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray $24

Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray is described as a luxe blend of fresh, breezy Caribbean waters; rich, exotic coconut milk and bold beautiful frangipani flower takes your senses on a journey to a glam island resort.  Paired with the eau de toilette spray is the Saint Barts Soleil Shimmering Body Lotion.  Inspired by the shimmering waters and silky sands of Saint Barts, this hydrating luminizer leaves your skin with a radiant glow and a wisp of the Saint Barts Soleil fragrance.  Layer under the eau de toilette spray for a luxurious, total-scent experience.

Layer mark. Saint Barts Shimmering Lotion under the Eau De Toilette Spray for Extra Staying Power

Personally this is right up my ally.  If you are familiar with past mark. Instant Vacation releases, its like a  combo of the Marrakesh scent mixed with the original Instant Vacation scent.  I adore anything coconut and this gives just the right amount of it to not smell like you just applied Hawaiian Tropic (which by the way I also really enjoy).  Its sophisticated enough for all ages and just like I like fresh, clean and light, like a summer fragrance should be.  Because it is a Eau De Toilette I do re-apply hours later if its going to be a long 15 hour type of day.  The shimmering lotion is the same formula as the past mark. Hamptons lotion but obviously with this new scent.  Its not as moisturizing as my typical Whipped Up Body Butter I use daily, but as a nice, light lotion it works.  The shimmer isn’t glittery but a nice, well, shimmer.  I really like it on my legs.  And just like any other fragrance duos layering helps the staying power.  At $24 for the Eau De Toilette Spray and $14 for the Shimmering Lotion this is a super affordable duo.  You can get them at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger

Word Of Alicia Review:  My new go-to must have scent.  At a super affordable price point I won’t mind wearing it everyday and everywhere.  The shimmer lotion is just a summer must have in general but also having this killer scent is win win.  Not to strong for work/day but intense enough to wear out at night.  Definitely a scent that instantly takes me to a warm summery happy place.  Shop the mark. Instant Vacation Saint Barts Soleil Eau De Toilette Spray and Shimmering Body Lotion at my eBoutique.

Crazy For Coral – Part 2!

Punxsutawney Phil has declared early Spring!!!  Besides the fact that the Groundhog’s Day theme music is now playing in my head I’m right there with Phil on bringing in Spring early this year!  If you recall I already shared how I’m using coral to brighten up the face, now its time for the wardrobe.  I’m SO over heavy tweeds, bulky sweaters and everything winter so a breath of fresh spring air is just what I need!

Pop of Coral and Aqua

Pop of Coral and Aqua

First step in bringing in spring, is adding in color!  I busted out my fav tee from Target and added in the bright coral Great Shapes Necklace ($22) from mark.  It’s still jacket weather but this grey faux leather jacket definitely lightens up things from your winter wool coat, AND The Little Big Of An Edge Jacket ($49.99) is on clearance right now at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger.  A metallic bag like this Always Perfect Tote from mark. lightens things up too!

Pop of coral on black

That same coral Great Shapes Necklace ($22) really pops against a LBD.  Add the Great Shapes bracelet ($24) and you got yourself some bright baubles!  This LBD, The Modern Classic Dress ($29.99) is one of my ALL TIME favorites from mark.  It’s a 3/4th sleeve and thick jersey material so you instantly feel lighter and more spring like but its enough to keep you warm.  You know what’s even better… its on clearance too for only $29.99!!!  Also, spend $20 at my eboutique and get that killer faux ostrich bag for ONLY $25!  So that means you can get this full look the necklace, the bracelet, the dress, and bag for ONLY $100.99!  Which also qualifies you for FREE shipping at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger AND a FREE Valentine’s Day Gift Bundle!  (see below)

What To Wear This Holiday Season – Lacy Cropped Top

Now that Thanksgiving is over we are OFFICIALLY in the holiday season!   Which also means the the madness begin!  Baking… shopping… decorating… socializing…

Let’s make it easy by removing that dreadful question, what am I going to wear!?!  Something that can easily be casual or dressed up… wear to work or out at happy hour… to the kid’s holiday show or the big kid’s holiday party!  Problem solved with mark.’s I’m Going Lacy Top ($28).  It’s so versatile it will work with whatever event the holiday’s throw at you!

I'm Going Lacey Top

I’m Going Lacey Top

Let’s be honest, I just don’t have the shape for boxy cut tops, but this one ACTUALLY looks pretty darn good on!  It’s the openwork lace that allows it to lay flat and flatter.  Plus pairing it over all over black and a slim cut counter balances the boxy cut.  This look works casually or dressy!

Accessorize with mark. bling

Accessorize with mark. bling

To also elongate the look I picked a long necklace to the eyes focusing on one slim line rather than the break the cropped top makes.  My bling of choice, the Long And Short Of It Necklace.  One bling is not enough so the Fired Up Bracelet, Show Me Your Luxe Ring and Star Studded Earrings round out my bling.  You can get all 3 of these pieces right now for only $38 with the Luxe Set.  Shop all these pieces at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com  

You can pair any slim black pants you probably already have in your closet with this look.  If you don’t have a pair I recommend mark.’s Great Details pants or hit up Express which is where these are from.  And the shoes… pair fun shoes with this for some extra impact.  Mine are of course from Shoedazzle… shop it here:  http://www.shoedazzle.com/invite/13vwrv69ld

Switch Up The Holiday Face

Switch Up The Holiday Face

Go ahead, envy those Star Studded earrings!  Perfect for all occasions and part of the Luxe Set for $38!  This year switch up your holiday face and go glam with bright pink lips instead of the classic red!  Lipclick Luxe in Pink Icing is the perfect shade and will flatter most skin tones.  Plus the formula is super easy to wear and feels weightless!  Finish out the look with Lightshow Illuminating Face Powder (worn as blush) and Star Status Eye Shadow Pallet in Earth Angel on the eyes with a classic black liquid lined eye in On The Edge Hookup Eyeliner in Cleo and Lash Act Mascara in Blackest Black.  Shop all the products used at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com
