Clothing shopping is a new type of post for me, since I usually talk about meal planning, yummy recipes, or organization of some kind, but one of the few things I like about Winter is the opportunity to shop online and avoid the cold and crowds, especially around Christmas!
Since I’ve had Amazon Prime for several years, which for a yearly fee of less than $100 gives me free two day shipping on just about whatever I want to order, I end up doing lots of my shopping on Amazon. The Amazon Prime membership also gives you unlimited streaming of movies and TV shows with Prime Instant Video, and the ability to borrow books from the Kindle Owners’ Lending Library.
I not only buy lots of my Christmas gifts on Amazon, but also clothing for my family and myself.
To make sure things will fit, and that I’ll be happy with them, I like to check out several different areas on an item’s listing page on Amazon:
*whether it’s a Prime item–if I’m in a hurry and want it in two days with free shipping
*the Star ratings–I tend to only purchase items that have at least 4 stars
*the Size Chart and Fit as Expected Percentage–this helps to know if things run small or large
*the Product Description–gives more details so you’re not surprised by something
*Customer Questions & Answers–if you have a question, it’s possible someone asked it already
*Customer Reviews–there’s always one unhappy camper, so I do take that into consideration
With taking all these things into consideration before I purchase something, I’ve had very few returns compared to the amount of things I end up buying. Since I’m not a crowd person, I LOVE shopping online for Christmas too, but today I’ve been looking at some fun winter fashions that are available on Amazon, and wanted to share my finds with you!
Winter gives us a stylish opportunity to dress in layers with various textures, colors, leggings, vests and boots, oh my, and you don’t have to leave home to find some wardrobe staples.

All the items I picked out to feature today are Prime items, so shipping is included if you have the Prime membership, they’re all reasonably priced, received good reviews, oh and they’re cute, comfortable and stylin’ too!
This quilted padded jacket vest comes in several colors, but my favorite is the dark brown. This would be perfect for days that aren’t yet freezing cold, and would look crisp and neat with a Henley long sleeve t-shirt or turtleneck!
To me, this outfit is just about perfect. I love tunic style tops anyway because they cover several problem areas at one time, and look great with leggings or skinny jeans and boots, and this tunic looks great with the scarf!
I’ve had this style shirt before, and was surprised with how much I loved it. The 3/4 length sleeves made me feel more comfortable (I like my arms covered 😛 ), and the snug fit on the bottom was comfortable and slimming! This shirt also comes in a bunch of colors, but my favorites are the heather texture ones, like the charcoal colored one.
I’m a 48 year old mother of three, and not a fashion guru, but I do like to dress nicely, affordably and comfortably, and I wanted to show you what cute clothing items are available on Amazon, and how to have a successful shopping experience too!
