Cheers to Friday, friends, and the weekend ahead! We had an early peek of Winter this week, with 35-degree days…which was kind of fun, but we’re relieved to see sunshine and 60 for the weekend!
We put our tree up last weekend (I was too excited to see what our new flocked tree looked like!), but I’ve yet to add a single ornament. I thought it would feel weird to have it up so early, but I like being able to take my time decorating it! So as it stands, our Thanksgiving Table sits in the glow of a Christmas tree!
Thanks for all your love this week on the Gibson x Glam Holiday Collection, as well as the latest with our pups, and some Work to Weekend inspiration. I can’t wait to hear how you like your holiday tops, and see pics!!
Today I’m excited to share some new fashion finds from Amazon. These have quickly become reader-faves, and even though it takes intense digging to find the good stuff, I love the challenge of discovering such gems! I certainly try-on more misses than hits (hence why I choose mostly items with free returns!)…but there are fashion gems to be found, and at amazing prices. Pair that with the infamous Amazon fast, free shipping and returns, and we’ve got ourselves a style jackpot!
This month is a great assortment of sweaters, coats, pajamas and holiday dresses…and here is the best of the batch.
Sidenote: If you’d like to see more of these Amazon posts, please consider not shopping via the Amazon app when on your phone/tablet. Not only does it not credit the sale to me (so only Amazon benefits), but it keeps me from seeing what you like most! Thank you for considering this option.
Okay, let’s start with the best in show…this insanely chic moto jacket!! First up, in comes in five great colors and the price is unbelievable, especially for the quality! The faux-leather is spot-on, and the shape is feminine with a fitted shoulder and nipped-in waist. Wear it with the sweatshirt hood for casual styles, or remove it for an edgier, dressier look.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing the Brown color and size small.
This jacket was so popular last month, I had to try the longer version. And yep, it’s a winner, too! It’s not overly-puffy, and hugs the body well for a flattering, and warm fit. I love the longer length for covering the bum…perfect for Friday night football games on the metal bleachers! I can’t speak to the warmth factor in significant weather, but it’s great for milder climates.
It also comes in nine fun colors. Oh, and it has a little attached pouch it folds up in…so it’s packable and compact!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, so true to size for coats.
Ooops, I ordered it again! I loved this jacket so much in our last Amazon Fashion Haul, but already have a short black coat…so of course I had to try it in pink. Same fit as the longer version, with the packable option.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, so true to size for coats.
And one more…the same coat in vest version! So cute and lightweight, it’s impossible to choose just one color!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, so true to size for coats/vest
Moving on to different outerwear, this faux-fir vest actually came in a bag that read, ‘This may look awful when you unpack, but the blow-dryer will bring it back!’ Say what?! The stuff you find on Amazon, y’all!
But guess what?! Mine wasn’t weird or awful at all! It came out of the package looking just like this! A fun faux-fir that looks incredibly expensive for only $25!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small and it’s a little oversized. So size according to the fit you prefer
Let’s move on to sweaters…my fave category this time of year. I’ll admit, sweaters have proven to be the trickiest to find on Amazon. Many are just too ill-made or look and feel too cheap to recommend. But my persistence paid off, and I found some serious winners this round!
Starting with this gorgeous sweater tunic…it’s the softest material with a relaxed fit and ribbed mock neck. I’m crazy about the shades of blue, and high-low hem with side split. It comes in three colorways, each cuter than the next!
Fit Tip: It’s a relaxed fit, I’m wearing a Small
Another fun sweater option, this tunic would be darling layered over a long-sleeve tee and leggings. The black and navy combo is unexpected, and totally works. The turtleneck is relaxed and not constricting, but not quite a cowlneck.
Fit Tip: It’s oversized, I’m wearing a Small/Medium
I hesitated to share this sweater because it definitely feels like a single-season purchase…but the pink leopard is so cute and the price so good, that I thought it may be worth it for you! It’s soft and not cheap-looking in person, with a slightly cropped length. But these black jeans, prepare to see a lot of them!! They fit so well, and have magical booty-enhancing powers!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small in Pink and Waist (26-30) in the belt
Every girl’s closet needs an assortment of black and white stripes…they’re actually my favorite for layering. The stripes work with so many patterns, and the black grounds any color you add to it. This sweater is a fairly lightweight knit, that works better as a base layer than a top layer. It’s soft and stretchy.
It’s the belt I know you’re anxious to hear about though! There was such an overwhelming response to the ‘H’ belt last month (seriously, a dead-ringer and amazing find!!), that I went searching for another option. And while I think this belt does a pretty good job, you’d definitely be able to tell the difference if comparing side-by-side with the ‘real deal.’
That said, you get the same look and style, for a fraction of the cost, and no one is likely to be the wiser.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small in the sweater and Waist (26-30) in the belt
Darn you, J.Crew and your perfect plaids! I added this preppy green flannel to my collection, and I’m so excited to style it for holidays. It’s a soft, brushed flannel, but with a slim, feminine fit. I paired it with the infamous ‘H’ belt. I love hearing from all of you who are loving it now, too! (Read my full review on it in my last Amazon Fashion Haul here.)
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a XS
Speaking of belts, I shared a belt bag as a fun alternative a few months ago, and couldn’t believe how many of you asked about it! So when I spotted this leopard, I had to try it! It’s faux calf-hair, but looks and feels really good! The proportion is good on the body, and it will hold a phone and a lipstick (albeit a super-tight fit for an iPhone Plus!).
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, and it’s got plenty of extra length.
Moving on to the cozies, let’s chat pajamas! I never struggle to find good ones on Amazon, but was thrilled to see Jijamas has a shop there now! If you follow my Instagram Stories, then you see me wearing this brand all the time. Made of the same pima cotton as newborn clothes, these are the softest pajamas I own. They make me feel instantly happy and relaxed the second I pull them on. (You know that giant end-0f-day exhale? That’s what these give me!)
I adore the new Christmas print…subtle, but still festive! Plus, these launder beautifully. Both my oldest and newest pairs still feel exactly the same. They’re on the pricey side, but you’ll own them for years, and I can’t recommend them enough!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a regular small, tall sizes available, too.
This lightweight pajama has a waffle weave and scoop neck. They’re fairly soft, with a jogger style bottom that keeps them from dragging. They wouldn’t be my first choice, but I wanted to include them in case you’re looking for this cute pattern for holiday.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, but would prefer XS
These classic plaid pants are a lightweight flannel with elastic waist and drawstring. The top is a soft, sturdy cotton.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small
Mama SP prefers a button-shirt style pajama, so these next two are for her! These polka dots are a heavy flannel that’s soft and warm. I love the dark plum with pink trim and satin bow.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, but would prefer XS
These sturdy cotton pajamas look just like J.Crew, but a fraction of the price. They’re thick and soft with a sturdiness to them.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS
And since it’s holiday season, how about a few gorgeous dresses?! I absolutely can not believe how lovely this dress is, and well-made! It fits beautifully with comfortable, stretchy lace across the shoulders and arms, and a flattering fit-and-flare shape. It’s fully-lined, too. Absolutely can’t go wrong with this one! And the price is unbelievable!!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing an XS and still had a little extra room. So consider sizing down if you’re in-between.
A similar dress, but in a long-sleeve…this lace makes a flattering faux-wrap shape across the torso accenting the waist. The lace on the arms is soft and a little stretchy, so it’s comfortable and easy to wear.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, but need an XS, so it’s true to size
This dress is a thick and sturdy sweater knit, with cute cut-outs at the neck, arms and hem. It’s got just enough stretch to hold you in, and thick enough to smooth out lumps and bumps. (Note the shoes! More about them in a second.)
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a XS, and it feels a little tight through the arms and chest, so I’d size up one.
I love a good lace midi dress, and this red one is so chic! I’ve seen similar dresses for over $500, and this one could easily pass for that! The lace is thick with a slight fit and flare shape, and fully-lined. It’s a gorgeous dress, perfect for holiday, weddings, and cocktail parties year-round. And get this, it’s under $30!!!
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small, but need my usual XS
Now let’s talk about those shoes!! Oh my word, they’re adorable and sassy and so chic! I wasn’t expecting much for the price, but am totally blown away by how good they look! They’re made of faux-suede, and the ankle strap wraps and attaches with hidden velcro…so you can adjust to a wide range of sizes. Wait until you see all the darling colors! And they’re $30!!
Fit Tip: They don’t have half-sizes, so I rounded up.
And finally, I found some great new workout wear…starting with these high-waisted cropped leggings. They’re soft with a good sheen and perfect amount of lycra to hold you in, and still move easily. The sports bras are a solid fit, and have built-in padded cups for a little shape (most sports bras flatten me). Plus, they come in a 2-pack, so a great price!
I don’t think the pullover is intended for athleisure, but I liked it as a light top layer. It’s too sheer to wear alone.
Fit Tip: I’m wearing a Small in the bras (so size up one), XS in the leggings, and Small in the tunic.
If you missed last month’s Amazon Fashion Haul, here are your most popular finds:
This cozy pullover (available in several color options).
This open front cardigan vest was a definite reader-fave, and you scooped it up in all the colors!
And these accessories all made the top picks. Clearly y’all love a good look for less!
As for the random finds, I picked up these blue-light glasses, and they’re game-changers for me! Obviously I spend a ton of time on the computer and phone, and by mid-day my eyes burn and ache. These block the blue-light illuminating from the screen, and take away the strain. I can honestly feel a difference as soon as I slip them on. They do create a slight tint, so I don’t use them when editing photos.
What have you ordered from Amazon lately? What’s your favorite fashion find from this month? Is there something you’d like to see more of next time?
And if you follow me on Instagram, stay tuned to my Story later for a live try-on session of these items! Happy weekend, lovebugs!
