Wear and Share Wednesday with mark. Major Hit Dress

From spring flowers to the start of baseball season,  spring is in full swing!  Baseball spring openers aren’t the only major hits around town… the mark. Major Hit Dress ($48) is too!  This dress, since its debut with featured cover star Skylar Diggins has been making a major splash, and it was a big hit with Jackie from Living After Midnight and I too!  So for this week’s wear and share we choose to style the mark. Major Hit Dress two ways!  Jackie took it glam and I took it sporty!

With a dress like this, you don’t really need much!  I loved the sporty look to it so I played it up with some booties and a more casual tote.  The mark. Bold Move Booties ($50) were just the right pair with their perforated detailing and peep toe styling.  I mean really, a peep toe booties is the greatest functional spring shoe.  They’re easy to walk in and go with everything from jeans to dresses.  The have the functionality of boots during those chilly April rains but breath as the day heats up during the afternoon hours.  If you get one spring shoe I say the most functional is a pair of peep toe booties.

The Avon Classic Carry All Totebag ($24) in mint is the perfect sporty chic bag for my sporty chic look.  Its functional and perfectly coordinating.  After seeing this tote in Jackie’s Go To Outfit for March I KNEW I needed one for myself!  And at that great price there’s no reason not to, plus it comes in coral too!

As far as baubles go I focused on the mark. Wave Me On Bracelet ($26) and paired a dainty mint necklace (last seen here), mark. Glimmer Of Hoop earrings (NOW 19.99 orig $34) and a sporty rubber watch in mint (try the Avon Unlike The Rest Watch $19.99)!

Its All In The Details!

Since the rest of my pictures are a little over exposed, here’s a real look at the detailing of the mark. Classic Hit Dress and the true color.  I love the cut outs at the top!  The reason why this dress is such a “major hit” is really in the detailing.  They got the color blocking in just the right spots to shape your figure and make you look amazing!  The texture over the white portion makes it easier to wear regarding show through.  The cut and shape really allow you to feel shapely and slimmed.  Check out the back, still just as flattering!

Just when I think mark. couldn’t get any better after the a slew of spring releases I’ve just gone gaga over (here, here, here and here), they release these minty perfections!  This is probably one of my favorite dresses in the closet and will get a TON of wear this spring and summer.  You can get the Major Hit Dress, Bold Move Booties, Wave Me On Bracelet, Glimmer Of Hoop Earrings, Avon Unlike The Rest Watch and Avon Classic Carry All Totebag all at my eBoutique!  Be sure to check out Jackie’s full look with the mark.

With the 10 year anniversary of mark., they celebrated with introducing us to the “10 to watch” list featuring 10 up and comers to grace the cover of the magalogs!  They’ve all been super stunning, but a few of my favorite looks came from the last few magalogs featuring Rosci Diaz, Jamie Chung (see how to recreate her look here) and now Skylar Diggins.  Sklyar, a pro basketball player has pretty much embodied the sporty chic look.

A little review:  I had these swatches on my hand until the next day when I was forced to buff them off.  They help up through multiple hand washings all day long!  The color pay off is great and they sharpen WAY BETTER than the old version.  The All Butter Now Lip Butters honestly do wear like a balm but with the color payoff of a lipstick!  I love the feel of them… and the smell too!  Bare All matches my natural lip color perfectly!
