Hi friends! Amazon launched a personal shopper experience for Amazon Prime members. It’s a monthly fashion subscription based service (similar to StitchFix or Trunk Club) and I had an opportunity to try it out. First let’s run through how the program works:
- You complete a survey about your style, fit preferences, budget, comment if you are looking for something specific and any additional details.
- An Amazon stylist will pull pieces based on your style profile and personal recommendations.
- You get to preview the stylist’s picks and select which items you want to ship and try on in the comfort of your home.
- Once you receive your Amazon Prime Wardrobe box, you have 7 days to try everything on. Keep what you love, return what you don’t. You only pay for the pieces you keep and can return the unwanted items in a resealable Amazon box that comes with a prepaid label.
- There is a fee of $4.99 per month. The subscription will auto-renew every month unless you opt out of automatic renewal. You can manage this via your Amazon Membership & Subscription page.
I elected to keep my budget at or around $50 for each curated item. I was pleased to see that Amazon adhered to my budget request. Aside from two items being slightly over $50 (Chinese Laundry loafer is $52.94 and the Foxcroft burgundy blouse is $53.76), everything else was under my budgeted amount.
Here’s what I received: A denim boyfriend jacket, navy plaid pullover tunic, olive-colored cropped jeans, burgundy blouse, suede loafers and ballet flats in a snakeskin print.
Outfit Details: Daily Ritual Denim Boyfriend Jacket (wearing XS) // Amazon Essentials Relaxed Fit Popover Tunic (wearing XS) // Democracy Women’s Ab Solution Crop Jean (wearing size 2) // Chinese Laundry Women’s Emy Loafer (wearing size 8.5)
I liked the longer length of the boyfriend jacket, plus the medium wash. I tend to gravitate towards a dark wash with denim jackets, but I did like this color option. My only issue were the buttons. They were extremely difficult to unbotton.
This relaxed fit tunic shirt is adorable. It’s a very nice transitional shirt and would look nice layered under a cardigan. The bracelet length sleeve is a nice change up from long sleeves. Lightweight fabric and it comes in a bunch of print options (if plaid isn’t your thing).
Loads of stretch in these cropped jeans. Very comfortable and easy to move around in.

Love the color of this shoe (also available in a black/white plaid and solid black). No arch support, so if that’s important to you – this may not be the loafer for you. Really cool nail head detail along the entire shoe. Not sure how comfortable these will be long term, given the reviews. I kinda felt like they made my feet look long. Hmm.
Outfit Details: Foxcroft Women’s Claudette Long Sleeve Solid Blouse (wearing size 2) // Democracy Women’s Ab Solution Crop Jean (wearing size 2) // Amazon Brand – find. Ballet Flat (wearing size 8.5)
Love the color of this blouse. It has two security buttons (hidden) to keep things in place. It’s constructed of lightweight, thin material but not see-through. The V-neckline is deep, so I would recommend a bralette or cami. It has a hi-low hemline and in the front, the hemline has that almost tucked in look. Very pretty. Easy to dress up or down.
Outfit Details: Amazon Brand – find. Ballet Flat (wearing size 8.5)
Cute bow detail on these snakeskin ballet flats. Very comfortable. Fit well on my narrow-to-medium foot. If you have a wide foot, this may not work.
Overall, I was pleased with the Amazon Prime subscription service and felt the stylist did a good job picking clothing and shoes that aligned with my style and budget. A lot of these items can be mixed and matched back to pieces I already own. This experience also pushed me slightly out of my comfort zone. For example, I would never have considered a denim jacket in a boyfriend fit. Having one sent to me, gave me the opportunity to try it on and style it not only with pieces included in my Amazon Wardrobe Box, but with items in my closet.
Have you guys tried the Personal Shopper by Amazon Prime Wardrobe yet? If so, I’d love to hear what you thought of it.
Thanks for stopping by! xo ~ Michelle
