It’s that time when I share all the Amazon finds and purchases for the month. Sometimes I buy very little in each month and sometimes it seems like I cleaned out their warehouse!
There is a constant stream of Amazon packages coming to our house. Many things get returned because they just don’t meet expectations, especially with Amazon clothes and shoes, but then there’s always a gem in the mix.
That’s why I love seeing what everyone else loved and didn’t love. It helps narrow down the wants and needs a little.
Be sure to check out my post on 7 Cute Fall Shirts. Several of those came from Amazon and they are winners. I’ll share the one I kept in this review.
The first two items fall under Amazon clothes and shoes that ended up being gems.
These were ordered on a whim as part of a try on and I ended up falling in love with them. They are great for wearing to work and with jeans off duty for casual looks.
The chain detail is trendy this fall. They also come in black and brown. I normally wear a 7.5 and I got these in an 8. The are very comfortable and don’t slip off when walking.
This was another research/try on item for a post that I fell in love with. This one comes in 13 colors, but some of the color options look cheap to me. The khaki color looked “less cheap” to me and I’d probably wear the black, grey, blue or purple as well. I ordered a small.
These are supposed to be oversized but oversized translates to sloppy on me. If I could get this in xsmall I would, but I’m going with the small since it’s not terribly big. This vest is an affordable way to try this fall trend.
This comes in 27 colors/options and mine is the orange color. It’s more of a rust and perfect for our fall. I have a rust-colored top that is many years old and has become picked and unpresentable. This made a great replacement.
I ordered it to review as an option for the fall tops post and decided to keep it. The Amazon title says chiffon, but it’s polyester but a smoot comfortable polyester that has enough weight to hang well. I can also wear this to work and off duty.
I still love my erasable pens for my planners and to do list. It was time for refills.
I really like the minimalist and modern style of these, but I do wish the larger pair was just a tad larger. Both pair are rather small. I’m still please with the purchase.
I finally ordered a couple of body suits. I’ve had intentions to give them a try again. I wore them in the 90s and loved them. I ordered this one and a halter neck sleeveless one. I haven’t worn them much yet, so I’ll get back to you on how well they wear. They are a decent quality and feel good on. This one was a huge NO.
This is a nice quality handbag. However, I wanted one that I could change straps and use as a crossbody. To use this one as a crossbody, you have to use the leather strap and not the colorful one.
The colorful strap is just too short for my liking even to wear on the shoulder the normal way. The hardware is silver, so I’d have to look for a longer strap with silver hardware. I already have a strap that has gold hardware.
I had ordered that strap for a different purse only to find it didn’t work with the purse I had and when I tried to return it the seller gave me a refund and told me to keep the strap. So…. Do you see my dilemma?
I ordered this purse and it’s just too small. It also doesn’t have any closure at the top. It’s open. Both purses are going back.
My hubby takes these and says they seem to help with his energy, chronic pain and immune system issues. He needed a refill.
After all the allergy testing, product elimination and trail and error, I’ve determined that I can wear matte eyeshadows but if I wear anything metallic or with any kind of shine or sparkle, I will have an allergic reaction regardless of what’ listed on the label.
This is a nice neutral eye shadow palette. I don’t like large palette’s because they usually expire before you can use all the product, so this works for me.
This is my favorite purchase of the entire month. I purchased this amazing tote in blush for the spring and liked it so much I bought it in bronze for fall. It comes in over 30 colors (too many for me to count) and gets lots of 5-star ratings.
The hubby had a birthday in September and asked for cotton tanks to work out in. I ordered this one for him. It has a mesh back. He liked it so much we ordered two more after his birthday.
He also wanted “flip flops” for around the house and camping, but he really doesn’t like the thong between his toes. I ordered these slide sandals. I ordered them in black and brown to let him choose a color, but he liked these so much, he kept both pair.
He says they are comfortable. He wears 13 shoes and the 12-13 size fit him. Shoes can be difficult to find in his size. Even more reason to keep both pair.
I ordered these October 1, but at 4 for $9.99 these are too good not to go ahead and share. I’m using them on my front porch.
Other Things That Didn’t Work Out
I ordered this ruffle mini skirt and it was way too short. I know it said mini skirt, but sometimes the length is okay. You never know. I also ordered three midi/maxi skirts from the same brand, same size and received three skirts in three different lengths and three different sizes. You just have to try and try again with some of the Amazon clothes and shoes.
I also ordered this skirt in leopard and found it to be way too short, too thin and just poor quality.
I’m linking up with Tanya and her Prime Purchases Link Up. I can’t wait to see what you found on Amazon. Do you shop Amazon clothes and shoes?
