What To Wear: Fall Jewels

What To Wear:  Fall Jewels

What To Wear: Fall Jewels

With Thanksgiving next week there’s still some fall occasions left leaving you with the what to wear question. Jewel tones are not only of the season but also festive.  A few key pieces are all you need to really make an impact with a fall jewel tone look.

Navy and Emerald

Navy and Emerald

I paired a simple navy sweater dress (Express) with emerald accessories starting with this great wrap belt from White House Black Market (on sale!).  Comfort and cozy in the sweater dress and makes for a great canvas for statement accessories.  Emerald as an accent is really versatile, as it goes with my navy here but would also look stunning with rich purples or with your ruby reds for holiday.

I might feel a little 80’s but these mark. Emerald Princess Pumps pair perfectly and have a modern take with the high back to them.  The finish is almost like that you’d see on a car.  They’re so unique but classic at the same time.

Jewel Tones For Fall

Jewel Tones For Fall

I like a simple sweater dresses in the fall and you can so easily glam these up for day or night.  Easily could throw on a camel/tan leather (or faux leather) for going out the night before Thanksgiving.  A small bag like this with a strap makes for hands free mingling and killer pumps for the party factor.

However, the major impact to this whole looks are the actual fall jewels, as in the jewelry!  These mark. Baroque the Mold Earrings and Ring in rich jewel tones and opulent stones and styling are the perfect statement pieces for the right finishing touch.  Seriously all you need to do is add these bad boys on to any look and you’re instantly glam!

Finally what would a fall jewel tone look be without a fall lipstick!  Go for a jewel tone like the Avon Ultra Color Absolute Lipstick in Radiant Raisin.  Pair it with an equally opulent eye using the mark. Dream Sequins Shimmering Eye Pallet.

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!

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!

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
