    @AvonInsider Calling! The Signature Collection has been unveiled!

    Avon calling! Some of us only know Avon as the door-to-door cosmetics giant, but this incredible brand has just gone from strength to strength, year after year, with its fab line of cosmetics, perfumes, footwear, and fashion. And with celebs like Reese Witherspoon, Fergie, Salma Hayek, and even designer Diane von Furstenberg partnering up with the company, Avon is just getting bigger and better. Oh, and another reason I have major love for Avon — this company goes above and beyond with issues relating to women, such as their Breast Cancer Crusade and Speak Out Against Domestic Violence programs.



    Avon has just released their Signature Collection! After 40 years in the archives, the 4A monogram (a symbol of Avon’s heritage), is making it’s long-awaited debut! In the 60’s and 70’s, Avon featured this monogram on evvvverything, from product packaging to makeup fashion accessories. The four A’s in the iconic logo symbolized the dedicated Avon representative motto: “Anytime, Anywhere, Always, Ask.”

    The Signature Collection:

    The Mailyn Tote ($39.99) and the Mailyn Wallet ($19.99) both feature the iconic Avon monogram, with a charming 4A logo tag/embellishment on the front. What do I love about the tote? Having worked in the handbag industry, I know a good tote when I see one and Avon has no doubt put in a lot of time and energy to get this handbag at the level it is. I love the handbag’s relaxed feel, its contrast straps (and the thoughtful buckle detail), as well as the roomy interior — you can place all your daily essentials in here. The wallet is just as neat. I LOVE the size of this wallet. I’m not a huge fan of small wallets and this one is the perfect size for taking out on its own or just throwing into the tote at a moment’s notice. The wallet is choc-full of organizational pockets and 6 credit card slots.


    Love the contrasting colors, love the high quality and definitely loving the Avon prices. Treat yourself to these sweet pieces or grab them for your BFF. Avon is also the best place to pick up gift sets for the holidays — just go to Avon.com or contact your local Avon rep.

It’s a fab way to kickstart your career!


    Last week I was lucky enough to visit Chloe + Isabel’s Spring 2014 Jewelry Collection in their showroom in downtown Manhattan. And if there’s one word to describe this new line from Chloe + Isabel, it has to be “amazing.” These new pieces are inspired by many elements and feature everything from vintage designs and marine-inspired colors to bold metals and flashy stones.

    Here’s a few pics of the Spring collection:
