Today is the day! My collection with Amazon the Drop officially launches and I could not be more excited. If you are reading it this morning, it may not be live yet so be sure you’ve signed up for SMS updates to get a message when it launches. I was blown away by your love for the last collection and so disappointed that some styles sold out before people had a chance to shop them. Amazon has taken that feedback and has done a lot of thoughtful planning in order to be prepared to accommodate more orders this time around. So, I am hopeful it won’t sell out quite as quickly as it did last time, but this is only my second time doing this… I guess we will see!
Amazon the Drop: Launch Day!
There’s a lot to say about this one!
We have brought back the nightgown silhouette in three fall friendly patterns + two silhouettes (mid-calf and short).
The collection is very matchy-matchy and meant to be worn together, There are two things in particular: a dress with a matching trench (love how they look together) as well as matching pants… and for something a little more fun a set of matching printed trousers with a top!
We will get into all of that more below but here’s the practical stuff!
Sizing: Amazon the Drop runs very true to size. I am wearing a medium in everything. The fit on everything is pretty loose, and was designed to be that way. I could probably have sized down to a small in the tops and dresses but prefer the looser cut. If you want a less flowy look, size down!
Fabrics: As with the last collection, we worked primarily with viscose + tencel. The solid cinnamon is 100% tencel (except for the trench, which is stretch cotton!) as is the classic camel leopard. The red leopard and the grey leopard fabrics are 100% viscose. The viscose has a bit more drape than the tencel whereas the tencel holds the shape a bit more. The other exception is the tee, which is 100% cotton.
Pockets! All of the dresses (and the pants too) have pockets. I can’t believe I overlooked that last time.
CINNAMON is definitely an important part of the collection. I love this color so much for Fall and also die for a good monochrome look. I really love how the trench and pants look together.
And this dress!
I wasn’t prepared to love it as much as I did but it may be my favorite of all the dresses. I tend to personally gravitate more toward prints, and there are already so many great solid dresses out there. But the color, the cut, the fabric… it just works so well. This is great with bare legs now but just add black tights and booties (or over the knee boots!) when the temps cool down.
The trench is really such a standout item.
Here it is worn over the cinnamon colored dress. Below I styled it over the grey nightgown and then below that, over the red nightgown. It goes with everything and really brings the whole collection together. And the color!!!!! I don’t have enough of this color in my closet.
You can’t go wrong with a classic trench, nightgown dress, and easy sneakers. (And the dumpling bag!) This is the perfect everyday, running around uniform. Also, these sneakers are from Amazon the Drop! The perfect everyday sneaker without any branding or nonsense.
We have three nightgown dresses!
So hopefully everyone who wants one can get one this time around. One thing we added was a short viscose nightgown dress (above). So the fabric is similar to the red leopard from last time, but in the shorter silhouette. If you look closely you’ll see that the cinnamon color is incorporated into the pattern.
And then we have our classic leopard! We did add a pop of fiery orange-red to the pattern to make it a little more fun. This is the exact same style as the green leopard dress from last time, but with pockets. (Sandals are linked here!)
Oh gosh I want to call all of these my favorites. Out of the summer collection, the red leopard nightgown dress was probably my favorite/most worn piece. So we had to do it again, in fall colors (you’ll see the cinnamon color woven in there too) with POCKETS of course.
I really wanted to add a matching set.
In fact, I have no idea how people will feel about this but since most of us are working from home, I thought a matching viscose set would be a fun take on the sweatsuit (I’m personally pretty over sweats… I still do them once or twice a week but generally get dressed). Wear the pieces together or mix and match them!
It’s so fun and if a matching set isn’t your thing, you can totally break it up and mix + match them with other pieces. The top has a nice drop shoulder and would look so cute with denim or a little black pant (or the cinnamon pants, the fabric coordinates!).
And the pants… I need more pants like this in my life. Elastic waist, cute little drawstring… perfect to also pair with a simple tee or bodysuit OR cozy cashmere sweaters as the weather cools down. These black sandals are a favorite. They’re shockingly comfortable; I have the nude too! They keep selling out so def sign up for wait list updates!
This outfit! I LOVE this color combination.
The pants are the same cut as the grey leopard ones but in tencel (the tencel is a bit less fluid but also a little thicker) and the TEE. It’s the perfect tee and I hope Amazon brings it back as a staple. Drop shoulder, oversized silhouette… it’s so comfortable and just really cute.
This is getting to be a long post but I wanted to provide a little guidance for styling the nightgown dresses for Fall, should you choose to wear them out of the house! I love mine with a good leather jacket or blazer. And I’m holding out on tights as long as possible but they look great with tights.
My leather jacket is from Eileen Fisher from several years ago but Amazon the Drop sells a really really cute one. And the blazer is Veronica Beard from last fall.
OK, just for you… tights. I know it’s helpful to see! I hate tights so much and usually put off wearing them til mid-late November but wanted to make sure all of the patterns would look great with black tights as they are such a necessity/staple once things get really cold.
