Eau What Fun! Mark. Mod Limited Edition Holiday Collection

London calling! Channel an era of short skirts, extra-long lashes and graphic black-and-white prints with the new mark. Mod Limited Edition Holiday Collection!  Not only does it have me all sorts of inspired (see here) I actually find this collection smashing! The collection includes a namesake fragrance, a matching body lotion and a coordinating eye pallet.

NOTES
• Top Note: swinging medley of rose
• Middle Note: capucine florals
• Bottom Note: spicy nutmeg allure

Word Of Alicia:  I would call this scent clean and masculine, and I absolutely adore it!  It is something completely different than anything else in my fragrance wardrobe.  The first time I sampled it I was like eh… then I used it and really got to explore the notes and how they layer.  OBSESSED.  Plus it lasts all day,  and then some!  Much longer than most mark. fragrances.  This one smells way more expensive than $30 would suggest.  It also has a really good retro feel to fit the mod theme.

Word on mark. Mod Body Lotion:  This creamy, extra-rich companion lotion leaves skin feeling soft, silky and eau so MOD.  mark. MOD is a swinging medley of rose and capucine florals spiked with a spicy nutmeg allure. 6.7 fl. oz.

• Absorbs quickly

Word Of Alicia:  Free with the purchase of the fragrance… sold!  Layering this with the fragrance really lasted into the next day, used alone still gave me a lot of scent.  Its a good weight too, not too heavy not to light. I personally liked that it lasted, and was free, so win win!

Word Of Alicia:  Let me just say that this is my new go-to pallet!  Besides having super cute packaging this pallet is the perfect size, portable and thin.  The pans are a really good size too, so a good amount of product with the 12 different shade options.  These shades are a really unique offering for holiday too… this is one you can use on the day to day and still get party looks for the season.  (check back for tomorrow’s look using it!).  I loved this pallet so much I made a swatch video of it so you can really see how wearable the shades are.  Very buildable as you can see during the swatches but also really long lasting.  If you liked the mark. On The Dot Pastels this will be a good replacement. After doing some pinning on all things mod I really saw how all these shades are quite retro and very much of the mod movement, but wear very modern.   100% satisfied.

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

Oh So Right… Retro Right

Fall looks are officially in full force!  A big trend this season is bold prints which mark. did oh so right on the Retro Right Dress ($34).  Black and tan with pops of this year’s hottest shade, tangerine, make it extremely wearable!

mark. Retro Right Dress with mark. accessories

This look has a retro 70’s feel but definitely with modern lines.  I accessorized it with the mark. Head First Hat, Chain Glam Necklace, In the Mix Stretch Bracelets and Ring Me Up Stretch Ring.  All available now at my eboutique: http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger To keep the retro vibe going I finished off the look with black and cork wedges from Target.

What I love about this outfit is how flattering it is, and on every body type!  The material is a slinky fabric so it just skims and feels great on but with the strategic draping and faux wrap tie (which is adjustable) it hides all the problem areas in addition to the print.

Since it’s still in the high 90’s I can wear it this dress now without sweating or feeling like I’m in too heavy of fabric but still getting a fall friendly look.  As the weather cools down mark. has the answer for transitioning this outfit… with the mark. Do The Tights Thing ($18) and Gimmie The Boots ($50), also available now at http://www.youravon.com/aliciahessinger
