So many of these pieces will take you into the summer months as well. As a mom of two young children, I try to be mindful of my fashion and make it cute AND practical.

I literally laughed out loud when I saw a Mom sipping wine with this t-shirt on at the airport. Leave it to Amazon to have the perfect t-shirt for a family vacation!

Sonia’s Tips For Shopping On Amazon

Ahhh, Amazon.  When you used to think about the word “Amazon” you probably thought about the rain forest.  Now when you say the word you’ll likely think about the online shopping site. I have been a prime member since it’s inception. I can’t even tell you how much I love Amazon and their 2 day prime shipping!  Hallelujah.

Good Amazon Finds

When I initially joined their website, I was shopping for things like diapers, pacifiers, teething toys etc.  Now I shop for things like kids sports gear, shoes, socks, underwear, household items and more….. you name it and I’ll order it!  While I am certain that my husband doesn’t love all the charges on our credit card bill, I realize that the time I save going to the store has been invaluable.

As a mom, I frequently put my family first.   It wasn’t until recently that I realized that Amazon had an Amazon Fashion Store. As an avid Nordstrom shopper, I was leery about purchasing anything on Amazon. I started my first purchase with an off the shoulder white dress for a boat party that I was hosting. I spent $30 on this beauty and it did not disappoint!  Thank goodness my first purchase was good, it set me on 2 day prime shopping journey that has taught me so many things about how to navigate Amazon fashion that I want to share with you today!

The Tips:

#1. Check if it is a prime item.  For a nominal annual fee ($99) you can become a prime member and it will give you free shipping on anything that comes from Amazon. It saves time and $ depending on how often you plan to use the site for shopping.
#2.  Make sure you look at reviews. Chicksandsalsa is in the top 1% of reviewers on TripAdvisor, so you know we love our reviews!   Shoppers (and ChicksAndSalsa) will help you determine quality, sizing and durability
#3. Know where the items are coming from. Often times I have ordered in haste and not paid attention…items that ship from international locations take much longer than something that is shipping domestic.
#4. In complete honesty, only about 4 of 12 items will be keepers. I have not had full success in my shopping with Amazon. However, with free shipping back, I’m always willing to take a risk in the comfort of my own home to try clothes on and send them back as needed.

The Finds

Here are a few of my favorite Amazon Fashion purchases.

Get “The Look” With These Designer Investments Under $300 – Cyber Monday Deals!

The chicks have always agreed that a few little statement designer pieces can really dress up an outfit. We are notorious for taking a $50 Nordstrom Rack dress and throwing on a designer belt or brooch to look like a million dollars.

I have also shared how sometimes I buy things second hand, like handbags, to get more bang for my buck.  For confidence in shopping second hand, shop places like Fashionphile or TheRealReal for authentic products.  Even on pieces like these you can score big on Cyber Monday, so check out these designer pieces that can take any look from drab to fab in seconds.

Another reason to shop these looks, they are classic and timeless. you will wear them again and again for years, so your price to wear ratio that we always talk about it totally favorable.

**NOTE: Items are selling out sooo fast at this time, if you like it, get it ! **

Chanel Drop Earrings

How classy are these!? Wear these with your hair up and make heads turn!

Louis Vuitton Leopard Scarf

Get the best of both worlds with this LV Monogram and leopard print scarf. Every year leopard print is a trend for Fall, so keep this year after year!

Rag and Bone Hat

Before you spend less on a similar looking hat, know that there is a reason these cost more – Rag and Bone literally created the trend, their cut, weight of the fabric and overall design makes these hats literally look better than others, so before you waste your money somewhere else, consider an investment in this.

Moschino Belt

This statement belt has been making the rounds on social media along with the Gucci belt and this Burberry one. It is literally the easiest way to dress up a plain black dress or layer up over a cape.

YSL Pool Slides

I rocked these all summer and can vouch for how comfortable and fashionable they are.  These are awesome slides, good in the sand and when wet.  I love how no matter what I was wearing, I had a little touch of ‘fancy’ on too!  Score these for 40% OFF!!

Burberry Scarf

This print never gets old, and this one in particular has more to offer with the additional colors.  I love the lightness of this scarf and how easily it drapes over your neck or your coat (as pictured).  For the price, you can’t beat this.

Balmain TShirt

I do live a dressy t-shirt but within reason which is why I am so glad that I found this Balmain shirt for $152 dollars.  Its black – which I love, with a button shoulder detail that is perfection.  What is not to love.

Valentino Love You Tee

This ones comes in at under $100 and is a perfectly understated tee.  I love how the model dressed it up with a skirt,  I am more likely to rock this with black skinny jeans.

Gucci Monogram Scarf

Lastly, this monogram scarf is a MUST under $300, you will wear it for years, your mom and sisters will steal it so scoop this up.  Its hard to find anything from Gucci for less than $300 so- you are welcome!

Well, hopefully these style tips can take your holiday looks up a notch. For higher end statements like Chanel brooches or Chanel earrings definitely check out Fashionphile.
