At the beginning of the post, Maddie explains that this is the second part of her series on certain Amazon clothing items that really aren't that bad.
Before listing the good stuff, Maddie explains, "I order a lot of stuff on Amazon from TikTok but I return about 90 percent of it."
What she then shows her followers is the 10 percent that is still affordably stylish and great additions to anyone's closet.1.

The first item that Maddie lists as a must-buy at around $20 to $25 is a pair of tan sandals that are very similar to Birkenstocks.
"I think they're so cute and comfortable, they're like Birkenstock-level comfort to me," Maddie says.
She would continue that the sandals feel as if you're "walking on clouds" to emphasize the comfort for the price.2.

Maddie then shows her followers a black handbag with a pattern that is also stylish without breaking the bank.
"This is very like, Bottega-vibes bag, and I think it's so easy to just throw on and wear," Maddie explains.
The bag is faux leather but the quality feels very real, according to the fashion expert.
It's a great option to reach for on Amazon that could save consumers almost hundreds of dollars in comparison to luxury handbags.3. Workout outfits
As her third affordable and stylish buy on the list, Maddie shows off some workout clothes that are even from big name brands like Lululemon.
The white top that Maddie sports is LuLulemon which isn't full price. and the bottoms are similar to Lululemon's "high-rise, 4-inch hottie totties," she says.
The shorts and the top could save people about $50 or more if bought from Amazon.4. Green dress
The last piece in Maddie's recommendations for her best Amazon buys includes an all-green dress.Read More on The US SunSO REAL? Kardashian fans are saying the same thing about Kim's split & Khloe welcoming babySAVVY SHOPPING I'm an economy expert - the label detail to look for to beat shrinkflation
"I love this specifically because it actually fits your boobs, I had to return the Zara one because it did not fit my boobs," Maddie explains.
Maddie notes that either way, the specific dress seems to earn a lot of compliments, likely given its quality.
Next time you're thinking there's no way out to pay for a luxury item you want, it might be beneficial to check Amazon first.4This green dress (pictured) from Amazon looks name-brandCredit: TikTok / @maddiejosephinee 4These kind of items Maddie lists in her review could save consumers serious cashCredit: Getty

I’m midsize & can’t find winter boots that fit me – I tried a ‘wide calf’ pair but instantly regretted it
WHEN one fashion influencer started searching for the perfect pair of winter boots, she knew she'd be in for a struggle.
She shared a sneak peek at her shopping strategy, and a pair of boots she'll be returning.3Fashion blogger Laura Hoden tried on wide-calf boots for her followersCredit: TikTok/imlauranotlauren 3Hoden struggled to zip the Vince Camuto boots for several minutesCredit: TikTok/imlauranotlauren
Laura Hoden describes herself as a "size 10 lover of clothes" on TikTok, where over 87k followers rely on her for fashion advice.
In a recent video, Hoden opened and tried on a brand-new pair of boots that purported to be perfect for wider legs.
"Wide calf TikTok, we got boots, and they're labeled 'wide calf,'" Hoden said, holding up a box of Vince Camuto boots.
The sold-out style is no longer available, but similar offerings from the brand start at $119.99.READ MORE: FASHIONBELT UP I'm plus size and only just realised I've been wearing my seatbelt wrongAUTUMN ATTIRE I'm midsize and did an Amazon fall fashion haul
Despite the label on the box, Hoden was skeptical the boots would actually be suitable for her body.
Just because the boots are marked as "wide-calf," she said, "that doesn't mean they're gonna solve the problem."
The moment she unboxed them, Hoden didn't care for the style of the boots.
"To be honest, I hate these, but we'll try them anyway," she said. "Here goes nothing."Most read in FashionYOUR BREAST BET I'm midsize with big boobs - my tip for going braless with lots of supportPASTY PROBLEM I wear 28i bras and tried lifting pasties - there was a problem after minutesGOT THE HUMP I did a SKIMS haul and Kim, we need to talk - the camel toe is realCURVY & CUTE I'm plus size - my lingerie haul from Adore Me gives me so much confidence
Hoden placed her foot in the boot and started zipping, and that's where her frustration really began.
"Wide calf my f***ing a**," she swore, tugging at the zipper and trying to secure the boots around her leg.
Working the zipper up her calf inch by inch took so long that Hoden created a timelapse video of the process.
Once the boots were finally on her legs, Hoden wasn't enthusiastic about their super-tight fit.
"I actually look like a jockey right now," she said. "I'm afraid of horses, but this kind of makes me want to go ride one."3The final look was not Hoden's style, but she showed followers who may be interestedCredit: TikTok/imlauranotlauren
Still, Hoden said, if the boots are the style you're looking for, they'll work on calves up to 16.5 inches – if you're prepared for a snug fit.
Her followers thanked Hoden for sharing her research with them.Read More on The US SunLIL REBELS Why Kourtney Kardashian's 'headstrong' kids will 'rebel,' expert revealsMURDER TRIAL TikTok star's son, 18, received chilling final call just minutes before death
