Finally! It's now even easier to find cute, casual mom style on Amazon with Amazon The Drop! It's a new way to shop that includes limited edition items designed by stylish influencers. It isn't made until the orders are in so there is less waste. It's fast fashion, done in a better way! And it's affordable!

I can't even remember how I found out about The Drop on Amazon. But I'm so glad that I did! Shopping for cute clothes can be really hard on Amazon. I found a handful of cute items this summer that I wanted for vacation. I ordered 6 things and ended up returning 5. Either the sizing was way off or the material felt awful.
I'm grateful for the easy exchanges (Kohl's dropoff is my fave!) but I don't want to have to return things. I want them to fit!
It can also be super time consuming to find just the right thing. And you truly never know what will show up at your door. Photos can be deceiving, for sure.
What is Amazon The Drop?
Amazon The Drop is a cool new way to shop for stylish clothes on Amazon. The Drop features limited edition collections that are affordable, on-trend and good quality.
Each collection is live for just 30 hours (or less depending on how limited the fabrics are). The clothes aren't made until they're ordered which helps to reduce clothing waste.
You can shop from your desktop or right from your phone which makes ordering super easy.
And because it's Amazon, Prime shipping is free, and returns are super simple.
The collections, so far, appear to be super affordable and this dress was about $55. I don't recall seeing any pieces over $100. It seems like a pretty good price point and I look forward to when The Drop, well, drops.
You can sign up for text notifications and you get a text with a link to shop when each new collection launches. It's super easy. I'm super old and don't like buying things on my phone. But it's too easy not to!
Plus when I get the text, I can instantly look at the collection to see if I even want to buy anything. I've been tempted a few times, but this dress from Spread Fashion finally made me pull the trigger!
I don't get texts in between, only when the line drops so it's not over the top like some of those group texts you're probably on.

Who Designs for The Drop?
The Drop garments are designed by influencers from around the globe who partner with the team at Amazon to create little capsule collections. The influencers are known for their style and are ahead of the trends. They have large social media followings and great overall style.
I love this because it allows people who are technically not clothing designers to create pieces that they know their audience would want to wear.
While the collection might not be available for purchase until the launch, you can follow the influencer and Amazon The Drop on Instagram for sneak peeks.
It's a great way to get a sampling of what will be offered and see how the Instagrammer styles it in their unique way.
You can find out who has upcoming collections by following The Drop on Instagram.
So far, I haven't known who the influencers are that have created the collections. From what I can tell, they are generally on the younger side which means lots of belly-baring tops and shorter hemlines.
I'm not knocking them for being young, but at 42, there are just some things I'm probably not going to be wearing. But I usually can find a few pieces that I think would be great.
How to Sign Up for Text Messages for The Drop
To sign up for text message notifications go to The Drop page and click on the black button that says “Click Here to Learn More.” Then scroll down to the section called “How do I find out when a collection launches.” Read through and they have linked the word “here” to sign up for texts.
They might have made this a little easier…
What is Sizing Like?
I'm always in the market for the perfect, easy boho dress. I fell in love with this one when I first got a peek of it on Instagram. I loved the colors and fabric and how flowy the cut was.
On the influencer, however, the dress was much longer. So while the sizing is probably pretty standard (I'm wearing a large), you certainly should check for measurements on the site instead of using how the influencer is wearing it as a guide.
I couldn't put my arms up or else my whole bum was showing. Baring your backside at school pick up is just not a good look. And one healthy wind gust would have really helped me put on a show.
When I looked at the name of the dress, it was called “minidress” so I should have seen that and known better. But I just went by the cute photos the gal posted of her frolicking about.
I did really like the feel of the fabric and felt the quality was nice. This dress also came with its own slip with I LOVED! I'm a slip wearer and there are very few things that come with their own slip attached. I appreciated the thoughtful detail.
I was really sad I couldn't size up since the launch had passed. But I am looking forward to trying out more pieces.
How Quick Can I Get My Items
Because the items aren't made until they are actually purchased, there is a bit of lead time. You will get an estimated delivery date in your summary window but you should expect between two to three weeks to receive your items. You can always check your order status in your Amazon account. You get all the conveniences of shopping on Amazon.
Staples By the Drop
When a collection is live, you will see not only special items from The Drop influencers but also Staples by The Drop. The staples are those repeat pieces, the great basics, that help build out any wardrobe. They have things like cute t-shirts for layering and denim pieces that coordinate perfectly with The Drop pieces.
The influencer weaves the Staples by the Drop throughout her styling to show how to wear the basics along with her specialty pieces. And while the limited collections are only available for 30 hours, the Staples can be shopped whenever.
Can You Make Returns?
If you don't love your piece, you can return items you're not satisfied within 30 days of your delivery. It must be unworn and has to have the tags and the packaging. Just go into your orders like you usually do when returning something on Amazon and follow the instructions.
Because the items are made for you, return fees may apply. Also, you usually can't exchange it for another size because the sale is already over.
I was able to return this dress easily. It did end up to be free return. And I was able to get the money returned to my credit card. The Staples By the Drop are eligible for free returns any time.
