“Fashion is what you’re offered four times a year by designers. And style is what you choose.” – Lauren Hutton
Who doesn’t love Amazon with it’s incredible selection and free express shipping for it’s Prime members? I’ve been a fan of Amazon for years and find Amazon Prime invaluable! I recently discovered a hidden secret. Amazon has made a big push into the online fashion and designer market, making it easier than ever to style yourself from head to toe in the comfort of your home. I decided to spend some time searching through the Amazon site to show you how you can make your life easier with one stop shopping on Amazon. With the holidays around the corner, time and money are at a premium and Amazon saves you on both! And if you are not a Prime member yet, I can offer you a Free 30 Day Trial!
In fact, I was so impressed that I decided to open my own little curated Amazon store right here on my blog! Every month I will be combing Amazon for the designs and values that represent CGOstyle. In addition, you will be able to find Amazon’s own special deals on a variety of products and shop for anything on the site through my store. Please join me and bookmark the CGO Amazon Shop and sign up for my newsletter for any alerts and updates!
I began my search in their online dress department. Amazon is known for a wide selection of inventory, and it took a little time to find my way. Once I found my groove, it became so easy to create beautiful looks at amazing prices from a wide range of designers. With names like Loeffler Randall, Kate Spade, Hudson and AG Jeans, Amazon now rivals many of the larger online fashion retailers. Like many of you, I love a bargain. Now, when I’m shopping online, I always check to see if I can find the same thing on Amazon for less. Combined with their free shipping for Prime members, I’ve been able to save a lot of money on both clothing and those added shipping expenses.
I decided to shop for several different looks beginning with my casual favorite, Boho Style. I often comb the Juniors section in most department stores as they have similar styles yet the prices are always heavily discounted. O’Neill is a retailer along the lines of Billabong. It’s beloved by millennials, surfers and anyone into the casual Boho Chic look. This patterned shift dress was under $50 which I paired with some booties from Dolce Vita. You can find a wide variety of booties with many different styles from this designer. I threw on a hat from Michael Stars, another one of my favorite brands carried by Amazon. They also carry a great selection of designer frames, and found this pair of classic Ray Bans for far less than I could find anywhere else.
I thought up a challenge in the hunt for my next look: Could I find that perfect dress for a luncheon or an evening out on the town? The hardest part was narrowing down my selection as I found many different options. I spotted this floaty polka dot dress by Jessica Simpson; it was one click shopping and I was done. At just under $65, it was hard to believe the price! I began the search for a pair of classic pumps to complete the look, and was delighted to see that Amazon now carried Stuart Weitzman. With one more click I purchased the pumps. The best part was the entire look was on the way and would be on my front porch before I knew it!
My Amazon package was delivered within a couple of days and we headed out to shoot this outfit on a sunny summer like day in LA. I was happy to have the RayBans along! I wasn’t familiar with Jessica Simpson’s line, and was surprised at the quality for the price. Given that it was a windy day, I was having my Marilyn Moment in this polka dot beauty. I couldn’t believe how beautiful I felt in this dress. It was flirty and feminine making me feel like a million bucks for a fraction of the cost of similar styles. It was perfect paired with the Stuart Weitzman pumps. Amazon is making the online shopping experience easier and easier. And with their Flash Sales, Prime Specials, Black Friday and Cyber Monday deals, shopping from the comfort from your home has never been easier or more affordable. The CGO Amazon Shop will be a fantastic portal for you to do your shopping!
Next up, I was on a mission to find a super casual look to run around town. I clicked on booties and found a wide range of choices. These black suede lace up boots by Beston found a quick place in my cart for under $40. They rival designer booties at much higher prices. They would easily work with most things in my wardrobe. I found a windowpane skirt by Shein and the fun “Make Magic Happen” T-shirt along with an inexpensive choker by Paxcoo. The entire look, including the boots, was under $75! The hat was found at GumTree LA by Hat Attack. It’s refreshing to know that there is one site where I can find everything to look and feel beautiful. From cosmetics to hair products, and from fashion to skincare, Amazon has you covered in beauty on every front! I rely on Laura Mercier’s cosmetics line to keep me looking my best. They carry everything from her indispensable Illuminating Primer to the Translucent powder. They even carry my number one product from Madison Reed: Root Touch Up Powder which totally saves my day when those pesky roots begin to show!
