Avon was the first company ever to believe in The Advice Sisters and offer me products to review so I have a spot soft in my heart for them. But way back then, I just thought of Avon as a cosmetics, fragrance and hair care company with affordable, unique, well packaged, and cutting-edge skin care, cosmetics.
I love watches — they’re so much more than just a way to tell the time — they’re a justifiable, fashion accessory. Avon’s Gruen Colorful Two-Tone Strap Watches $34.99 are not just quality timepieces, they’re adorable! The clear, white, oversized dials with bright, wide, bands, remind me of the pop watches of the 70’s. Silvertone cases and 9″ straps mean they’ll fit just about everyone. This is a great way to add some personality to a dress down Friday outfit, and I defy you to get just one! The price is amazing, and Gruen makes reliable watches that will last for a long, long time. They’re a worthy investment that won’t break your budget.
This is a bad photo of my second most favorite earrings: Avon’s Bright Chandelier Hoop Earrings in either hot pink, orange, or yellow (also just $9.99). These huge, goldtone double hoops have rows of tiny opaque and clear faceted dangles sparkling and swaying merrily back and forth as you move. A french clip earwire keeps them secure on your ears. They are super-big, but they’re lightweight, so you can wear them comfortably. They definitely make a statement!
