Amazon is working to step up its fashion game and I’ve been reaping the rewards this Spring, big-time. From cute date night dresses like the Esther One Shoulder Dress ($198, above) to deals and steals on brands I’ve heard of before and brands I have not, I’m having tons of fun cruising their huge fashion selection for everything I need.
For instance, I’d been feeling pretty lost since Victoria’s Secret discontinued their cup-size-based swimwear. I hadn’t even thought to look at Amazon til a Google search for a specific suit led me there. Now I see Amazon has tons of cute swimsuit options, sorted by everything from shape to cup size. I’ve picked up two one pieces for my lap swims (this one and this one — also available in regular cup — both in a 12), and a cute bikini or two too.
Another thing I love about Amazon is they introduce me to brands I’m not familiar with. The photo above inspired me to order the PARIS SUNDAY Women’s Spaghetti Strap Bottom Flounce Dress ($50), which turned out to be one of my favorite dresses so far this year! It runs true to size and is quite flattering on, especially belted. I took a large in it. I’ve also gotten more into BB Dakota thanks to Amazon, which often has steals on this and other brands I’ve heard of but maybe haven’t tried much from. I got the Haleigh Floral Embroidered Crinkle Gauze Dress ($92-$105, I took a size 8) for an upcoming beach wedding weekend and I adore it! I’m layering a cami or swimsuit under it.
And then of course is the joy of finding brands I adore for less. Take this cute Clare Vivier clutch above for example, which retails for $200. Amazon price? $106. These embellished shorts from Lucky Brand were another find, for about $20 less than other places.
Often I’ll go to Amazon to complete an outfit, picking up perhaps shoes and accessories together. When I was recently looking for a watch for example, Amazon has lots of choices. I am currently deciding between an oversized Tommy Hilfiger watch (top left), a La Mer watch (top right, under $50 on Amazon!), a Shinola watch (lower left, one of my current favorite watch brands!) or a chic Fossil option (lower right).
I haven’t been able to integrate Amazon with my shoppable boutique yet, but everything mentioned in this post as well as some of my favorite picks can be found in a list with pictures here. Have you scored any great buys from Amazon lately? I’d love to know about them in the comments!
