Today I wanted to talk a little about my upcoming collection with Amazon the Drop! If you are not familiar with The Drop, it’s pretty cool. A few times a month, they bring on influencers to design a collection for them. The collection is only available for THIRTY (yes 3-0!) hours, and then it’s gone forever. The really cool thing is that everything is made to order and then ships (incredibly quickly!) within 2-3 weeks.
My collection is going to be a breezy mix of easy dresses, kaftans, and even a couple tops.
I’m heading into the city today to finalize the collection with the team and am so excited. We’ve worked really hard to develop a bold colorful palette that I really love (think emerald green and colorful animal prints), and silhouettes that will look good on every body type. I am truly so excited for it. After we finalize the designs TODAY, I am taking my samples to Miami on Thursday and shooting the whole collection there. I can’t WAIT!
I have a highlights section on my Instagram which outlines the whole process. From mood board to pattern development and beyond! I get asked a lot about when it will launch but the best thing you can do is to sign up for SMS updates – any time a new collection drops (only a couple times a month), you’ll get a text so that you can be first to shop. I signed up a couple months ago to test this (and make sure it wasn’t a deluge of texts!) and it’s not. It’s literally only a text when there’s a new drop. So sign up, and in the meantime I will be posting all the behind the scenes to Instagram stories. This has been such a cool experience, one that I am very grateful to Amazon for.
The Drop’s Staples Collection
In the meantime today I wanted to highlight The Drop’s Staples line! They actually sell AMAZING basics at great prices. Everything I’m wearing in today’s post is from their staples line, and I’ve rounded up a few more favs below! (I get stopped and asked about these mules all the time, can you believe they are only $50?)
clockwise from top left: White Mini Pouch Bag (I got this in white and red; it’s so cute) // Cream Beanie Hat // Python Belt Bag (also in black or red) // Tan Tote Bag// Oversized Cardigan Sweater// Tie Dye T-Shirt // Tan Fringed Scarf // Utility Pocket Shirt // Lace Trimmed Camisole // Trench Coat // Black Blazer // Red Block Heeled Sandal // Pink Square Toe Sandal // Heeled Mule // Denim Shorts
The Drop’s Staples collection has so many good things. I will be styling my collection alongside many of them. I accidentally excluded two of my favorite pieces: this sweatshirt and these joggers… the perfect (blush pink, or try another color!) sweatsuit for travel!
All my Drop faves are also saved to my Amazon Shop under The Drop Favs, if that is easier to remember! My amazon shop URL is amazon.com/shop/graceatwood… I update it every week with picks across books, beauty, fashion, home, and more (like those random things you’d never know you can get on Amazon like Trader Joe’s Everything but the Bagel seasoning and Ken’s Italian salad dressing!!)
