My A|X Shopping Experience

This is a sponsored post on behalf of Armani Exchange via Izea. All the opinions expressed here are mine.

IMG_1830 I was sent on a $500 Armani Exchange shopping spree this weekend to check out their new premium denim which starts at $98. Up until this weekend, I had never stepped foot into an Armani Exchange before, and I had no idea what to expect. But in the end, my entire experience with the store, staff and the clothing was very positive and I can definitely see myself stopping into the store again.

IMG_1841 First of all, I was greeted and assisted the entire way through by a helpful and knowledgeable staff without mentioning anything about having $500 to spend on behalf of Armani Exchange. Sales associates like Alyssa, Dianette and Rosanna are the kind of people that make ones shopping experience exciting and memorable. The selection of denim was also impressive, and it was not hard at all for me to find 3 pairs of jeans that I completely fell in love with. I selected a pair of the Indigo Destruction Skinny Leg, the Grey Straight Leg and my personal favorite that I wore to a pirate party this weekend the Harem Jean. They all fit perfectly and definitely make me feel much better about recently having to retire my very old favorite pair of jeans.

This is where it gets cool for you, because A|X has also given me $500 to give away to a reader!

  • Wardell says:

    Hey Julia,
    Excellent post! If I had a $500 card I would get the following AX denim pieces Light Urban Destruction Boot Cut, Painted Boot Cut, Suspender Jean, Pieced Slouch Fit. 😀

  • Art says:

    Woo woo! Arty needs some new threads – hook me up! :)

  • tecmo says:

    I’d be the same way as you, as I’ve never stepped foot inside an A|X before. But the staff seems helpful, from your experience.
    I’m a simple guy, so the Light Urban Destruction Boot Cut looks good, as do the Grey Wash Straight Leg. Not sure if I could get into the ones with too much stuff on them.

  • Kerry says:

    Now you’ve got me lusting after the Wing Skinny Fit and the Pocket Boot Cut, neither of which I can afford without the gift card. I just lost some weight, so I could really use some new jeans. *fingers crossed*

  • Adam says:

    Hi Julia, I would buy the Jacquard Blazer (L6K305NF), the Tonal Strip Polo in both colors (L6M636PO), the Marled Trim V-Neck (L6W516VN), and the Canvas Weekender (L6BA667).

  • Love the new denim! I love these: J57 Straight, J11’s are amazing, J24’s are awesome too. Honestly I really like them all and would be thrilled to win!!!

  • Dave says:

    How is it that you *always# get the sweet hookups!?

  • Corey O says:

    Who doesn’t like to win? FTW!
    Black Vertical Stitch Cardigan
    Indigo Rinse Slim Fit Jeans
    Black Logo Moto Jacket
    Black Tailored Linen Blazer

  • Kelcey says:

    Wow what a cool giveaway! I, like you, have never shopped at AX. I’ve seen it from far off, but I’ve never stepped inside. After looking on their site – I LOVE their jeans! So if I did win the gift card, I would buy:
    J11 – Indigo Destruction Skinny Leg
    J11 – A|X Wing Skinny Fit
    Feather T-Shirt
    Mixed Print Dress

  • dentonmd says:

    AX jeans are very comfortable. But here’s the thing. I’m finding it hard to pick between these.
    – Indigo Rinse Slim Fit
    – Studded Slim Fit
    – Grey Wash Straight Leg
    – Bleach Destruction Boot Cut
    So I’m thinking we should take the flip cam, head to Armani Exchange and do a fashion show to figure out which look best.
    That said, I still think Armani Exchange does accessories the best, so I’d pick up these to compliment a pair of jeans.
    Dope Aviators – $70
    Blue Rubber Stainless Steel Watch – $180
    Crosshatch Leather Strap – $38
    Metal Plate Cuff – $24

  • Malissa Litz says:

    Wing Printed Boot Cut – 5J24ZBV (love the wing logo on the back pocket) $115
    Harem Jean – L5J507K $98
    Potassium Straight Leg – 5J57ZPJ $98
    A|X Pocket Boot Cut – 5J24ZFX $125
    and a few bucks left for a top yay!

  • rfwilkins says:

    Nice Site easy to select items, Nordstrom could learn something here.
    If I had a $500 card I would get the following J65 – Hand Sanded Straight Leg, Stripe Trim Polo, Short Sleeve Polo Sweater, and J65 – Overdyed Zipper Straight Leg.

  • Lindsay says:

    Okay, I LOVE the J11 Skinny in dark and the Cropped Sequin Skinny Fit.
    I’ve never shopped A|X before either, so I’d love to check it out!

  • Jacob says:

    I would totally rawk the Destruction Painted Boot Cut (6J101CNT). The New Zenith Boot Cut (6J101BNT2) also seems like a good look and fit. Good Luck to me!

    Very nice promotion! I like that the A/X staff helped you pick out denim that was right for you. I’ve never shopped there and I always have trouble finding the right pair of jeans – right now I’m only wearing skirts until I find the right pair!
    Here are my picks:
    -J 57 straight dark wash denim
    -volume stripe dress
    -suede bomber jacket

  • Lendell says:

    Hey this is great. I think I would go with opposites like J001 – Suspender Jean and the J101R – New Zenith Boot Cut. And because we are in Miami and it is HOT!!!. Id have to get a couple tee shirts. OK, I definitely have to bring extra money with my Gift Card. I have to have the belt – A|X Enamel Logo Belt

  • courtney s says:

    i like the j11 skinn in dark and the suspender jean j001

  • Hello,
    I’d probably get some nice shirts, since I’m running low. Ribbon Striped Shirt, Stripe Snap Shirt and the Textured Stripe Shirt. I’d also take a look at some of their jeans such as the J101 – Painted Boot Cut. Finally, I’d probably get a couple of t-shirts such as the City T-Shirt.

  • Matthew says:

    DO they make tall sizes??? I’m like six and a half feet tall!

  • FaithJ says:

    If I won I would def purchase the J70 – Rhinestone Skinny Flare Fit $125.00 and the J57 – Grey Straight Leg $98. The grey wash and the rhinestones are HOT! Thanks for the giveaway A/X!

  • Clay Hebert says:

    Miss Julia,
    If I were to be so auspicious, I would divide the money equally for a completely new jean wardrobe. I could finally throw away those Lee’s and Wranglers, or at least ship them to the ranch where they could run free.
    My new jean wardrobe would be:
    J65 – Hand Sanded Straight Leg – $115
    (for a lazy Sunday afternoon at the cafe)
    J65 – Grey Wash Straight Leg – $135
    (nicer jeans – to meet your mom)
    J101 – Painted Boot Cut – $125
    (to take you to the movies)
    J127 – Studded Slim Fit – $135.00
    (to wear to the ranch to make my old jeans jealous)
    You rock. Keep it up.

  • Cesar says:

    Hello Julia,
    Would you have written a negative post if you had *indeed* had a negative experience at the store? I still don’t know what to think about sponsored posts and how they influence the blogger’s opinion on the product.

  • Erica says:

    I’m a J24 girl myself… but looks like I’d have to bring along my next paycheck too. Too much fabulousness to choose from!

  • I was an unemployed TV writer for the past five years. Sure, I picked up the occasional gig, but I mostly worked at home.
    And then eight weeks ago, I was offered a JOB. An honest to god JOB. Where sometimes I’m in the office, and sometimes I’m at home.
    Except that after five years, my casual clothes are more hobo casual than business casual. An AX gift card would certainly send me on my way to fab casualwear that won’t embarrass me when I walk outside the house. :)

  • Hannah says:

    Just the leather moto jacket. That thing is amazing.

  • dan says:

    if i won the $500, i’d get these 3 jeans:
    1. L6J65SRS
    2. L6J65EZG
    3. 6J101EP

  • Hannah says:

    Hi Julia!
    Great post … it really made me crave some A|X demin (which I’ve never owned). If I were to win the $500 gift card, I’d purchase these jeans:
    1. J11 – Indigo Rinse Skinny Fit / $98.00
    2. Cropped Sequin Skinny Fit / $115.00
    3. J11 – Indigo Destruction Skinny Leg / $125.00
    4. J57 – Grey Straight Leg / $98.00
    Maybe the Harem Pants instead of one of the above? I kind of adore them but can’t decide if they’d look good on me. Love that you got them and wore them to a Pirate Party!

    Giving someone all your love is never an assurance that they’ll love you but Never say good-bye when you still want to try, never give up when you still feel you can take it, never say you don’t love that person anymore when you can’t let go.
