Grace’s Amazon The Drop Dresses Launch Today! HUZZAH!

Jun 18, 2020

Dress (runs loose but order your normal size!), Loeffler Randall Penny Knot heels (the comfiest, most fun heels ever, and also come in a lower heel, which is the pair Grace has! Run TTS!), Similar white jean jacket,Ray Bans (on sale!) Also love this similar style with the chunkier frames! Straw bag is sold out, but Shopbop has tons of cute ones! (Side note I reaaaallyy need to hit our table with a fresh coat of black paint ????

As you can probably tell by this title…

Grace’s Amazon The Drop Collection launches later today!

Eeeeee! (Also, side note, I felt REAL rusty dragging out the old camera to shoot this. It’s been a while!! ????) 

I know so many of you follow my friend Grace and have been excitedly awaiting her collection! And for good reason–I have her to thank for turning me onto so many of my most loved staples. The Amazon Mumu (although she calls it the Nightgown, haha!) Loeffler Randall sandals, basically every book I read–the list goes on. She’s truly a GEM of a human and her collection is every bit as joyful as she is! 

She was also so generous to gift me one of the dresses from her line–it’s basically a mumu, but shorter!! I’ve already worn it several times since I received it a couple weeks ago and I know you guys will love it too! EVERY dress from the collection is so flowy and perfect for summer! A WHOLE COLLECTION OF MUMUS, you guys. (Oh, and also some cute tops too!) In the most FUN prints and colors! Everything is under $60 with several designs created to look great on a variety of body types! 

How to score one of Grace’s dresses when they launch later today: 

The important info: SIGN UP FOR TEXT ALERTS! 

Definitely sign up to get a text alert the second it goes live! (When the Somewhere Lately collection launched so many of their items were gone in minutes, so you don’t want to miss out!) 

The collection will sell out FAST! 

The collection is only live for 30 hours, but I’m VERY confident these are going to sell out much faster than this! (I think the dress I’m wearing will go like HOT CAKES!) 

Sizing tips: 

I’m wearing an XS and I’d say it runs loose/oversized! The XS fits me perfectly and I think I would’ve been swimming in the S, so I’m glad I went with the size that I did! 

What I love about this dress: 

It’s shorter, but not too short, and is longer in the back than it is in the front for extra coverage! (I’m 5’6 for reference). There is plenty of room in the bust (I know many have problems with “the mumu original” because it’s tighter in the chest area). Also, she lowered the bust, so it hits you a bit lower on the ribcage for a more flattering look! I also adore the emerald green leopard print–it’s so fun and unlike anything else I have in my closet! The subtle ruffle detailing adds the perfect feminine touch without being over the top! 

Also–this dress comes in a blouse form, if that’s more your style, too! 

Dress it up or Dress it Down: 

Looks just as cute with heels to go out on the town (er, on the patio 6 feet apart) as it does with sneakers (wearing my Tretorns here!) for a casual stroll around the neighborhood.

More pieces I love from her collection: 

Okay this is the same dress I’m wearing ???? BUT had to include Caralyn’s photo of how she styled it because she looks SO adorable in it! Looks adorable with flat sandals and I love the pop of yellow against the green!

Julia is wearing the longer, orange version of my dress! This is basically a riff on the Amazon mumu, but improved! (Again, the bust is lower and roomier, as I noted above!) 

Grace's Amazon The Drop Dresses

Same dress, styled a totally new way!! I LOVE how Makeda styled it with platform sandals and an amazing belt!! 

floral tunic top

I LOVE her floral tunic top on Carly! So chic with white jeans! 

top version of my dress

What the top version of my dress looks like! I love the fabric-covered buttons down the front (they’re real buttons!) and the tie at the bottom. Will look so cute dressed down with some cutoff jean shorts, too! 

caftan

I think this caftan is SO chic! The perfect breezy thing to live in this summer and insanely versatile! 

Grace, you knocked it out of the park!! 

(Again, make sure to sign up for text alerts so you can shop the collection when it goes live later today!)
