    Honestly, I had to look at the calendar. Is this 27 days belated?

    I wonder how it judges what is "stylish" or not - style and fashion are very fickle and difficult concepts to define.

    Stylish = "wearing things that are in amazon's product range" in this case I'd imagine.

    I accidentally activated mine when I was wearing my birthday suit and was very upset when the style assistant told me that it needed ironing

    "Style Check leverages some of Amazon's Alexa deep learning AI nouse - distilled from 'fashion specialists'. "
    That and what Spacein said.

    I, however, like to dress "like the supporting actors in 80s sci-fi B-movies"... or so I'm told, although she still married me... so I guess a few 'Fashion Specialists' will be suffering heart attacks on the day I get me one o' these!!
