Brought on board at Amazon last year to helm fashion direction, Sally Singer is a woman who’s made a career on having good taste. Her sterling bonafides combined with the launch of Luxury Stores at Amazon (a luxe digital storefront accessed in-app by shopping by department and selecting Luxury) have helped turn the ecommerce giant into a must-shop destination for fashion-lovers. Singer’s sharing her current 13 buys with here, along with a few thoughts on her journey into ecommerce and how magazine-life helped prep her for the career switch.

What drew you to this role with Amazon?
