Things Oprah and I have in common; Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection

Makeup Monday is brought to you by the Oprah effect. And by Oprah I mean Gayle and O Magazine who did a Facebook live (see here) on some top O beauty picks and some holiday hair and makeup ideas.  This is not the first time team Oprah has put things on her must have list that were already on Alicia’s must have list.  2017 she featured the Avon Mini Lipstick Set (Lots of Lips) which created them to sell out super quick.  Note:  These came back in 2018 in a cute vintage tin…that have already sold out.  In 2008 during the Brooks Brothers Moonlighting gig era, Oprah said the BB Non-Iron White shirt was the must-have white shirt (and it is see here).  But it also created a frenzy of SAHM’s coming in to ransack the store for said white shirts… and then they sold out until we could get new stock in.  So its no surprise that the Oprah pick of 2018 is the Iconic Avon Beauty Classics Collection… which is also my current fav holiday beauty palette… and is prob about to sell out quick!

Alicia’s Must Have List DEFINITELY includes this holiday palette.  I kinda hoarded it when I first got it and did’t use it right away.  Then I did… now I can’t stop.  It’s BEAUTIFUL.  The shade selections are wonderful, the package design is vintage and adorable and looks killer sitting on your vanity.  Plus, the color payoff is so nice, and lasts SO WELL.  Gayle might have wanted to “borrow with permission” but for $24.99 even us without Oprah as our bff can still get this goodie.

Sweet Cherry Pie

Sweet Cherry Pie

Do you not immediately think of Warrant’s Sweet Cherry Pie when you see this cardi… because I do! I should of put this look as a Week O’Nautical outfit (see here) but I didn’t get around to it, but I’m still loving this Americana look from the Seaside Gardens Collection! (see here)

Americana outfit with Seaside Gardens

Spring rain hit us hard and I was ready for it! A cute cardigan is definitley the solution to spring weather. This Avon Felicity Cardigan in Cherry print brightens up a rainy day. (sidenote: it also comes in navy, white and red).  A spring layer is almost as necessary as keeping that umbrella around!

Rain Check!

For my Americana look I paired the Cherry cardigan with the Gingham Melanie Pencil Skirt (last seen here).  Of course I had to wear some rainboots (Hunter) and my big umbrella (Kate Spade) to handle this on again off again rain showers!

Spring Weather Must-Haves

You can shop my entire look over on my eBoutique!  Maybe make this bright and cheery cardi as part of your 4 pieces to upgrade your spring wardrobe, and don’t get caught in the rain!

Getting caught in the rain out takes!

I guess the best part of these favorite spring pieces going away is that it means NEW summer arrivals are going to be available!  And let me tell you it’s going to be a HOT summer with me and mark.  So check the eboutique often… you know I’ll be highlighting my favorites here!

Get The Look – Spring Maxi For Only $24.99

Let me just say, I am not a maxi person.  I adore it on everyone else but just not a fan on myself.  Theeeeeeen mark. came out with this midnight blue one over the holidays and I was completely smitten!  I really only wore it on Christmas Day when I wanted to be dressy because I couldn’t figure out how to make it more casual.  I think I finally figured it out:

Maxi's for Spring!

Maxi’s for Spring!

What I realized with maxi’s for spring is they are awesome for hiding my winter white legs but still allow me to enjoy the warmer weather sans tights!  Believe me this is an awesome thing esp for your eyes haha.  This maxi has a lace back (see below) and rouching around the waist making it super flattering and easy to wear on its own.  I did add a black belt for definition so the dress doesn’t consume me and a white leather jacket for the chilly spring breeze which also helps define so I don’t feel lost in the mass amount of material.  This dress really is the ultimate in maxis… and IT’S ONLY $24.99!!!  Right now the Midnight Maxi is on clearance at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com so get it before March 21st because I can’t guarantee it will be around when the new arrivals hit on the 22nd!

To take this maxi into spring it all comes down to the accessories!  My ABSOLUTE FAVORITE Hot to Handle bag is perfect for this look!  Perfect color and style to transition with and ONLY $25 with a $20 purchase at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com So you get the dress and you get the bag at $25, believe me you won’t be disappointed!  Also pair your favorite wedges with a maxi for that retro vibe but still modern.  And lastly the jewelry…

Vintage Feel Accessories

Vintage Feel Accessories

All from mark. the jewelry is what makes this look!  I went with vintage inspired pieces that still feel fresh for spring.  The long necklace helps elongate, so with long dress we keep the lines long.  Get the look with the Vintage Feel Necklace ($22), In A Flash Ring ($16) Style and Stones Bracelet ($24) and also NOW ON CLEARANCE the Great Timing Watch ($24.99) all available at http://ahessinger.mymarkstore.com
