amazon drop kathleen

I’ve shared for a few months small snippets about my small collection with Amazon The Drop that comes out later this summer.  I know there is some confusion about how a limited collection like this works, so I wanted to answer some of the most common questions to hopefully make more sense!

When does your collection launch?

I can’t reveal the exact date until closer to time, but it will be launching later this summer and I will give you guys a heads up when I’m given the green light to do so?

Where can I find it?

You can find it on Amazon on The Drop page.

How long have you been working on this?

Since late 2019.  We originally planned on releasing early 2020 and then pushed back to give myself more time after having a baby.  Then we were planning on spring and pushed back again due to coronavirus.  So we are READY to launch this bad boy!

Did you really design the pieces?

Yes, from a blank canvas we chose the story, moodboard, silhouettes, fabrics, colors, etc.  From there, Amazon’s team created the sketches and produced the garments.

I’m so excited and fascinated to hear and see what you guys think!

Why is it only available for 30 hours?

Each piece is actually made on-demand, just for those who order them.  They’re taking this approach to reduce waste, which I can definitely respect.  So in order for Amazon to be able to ship your order to you in 2-3 weeks, they limit the sales to a 30-hour period.

When you check out, Amazon will give you and estimated product delivery date so you can know when to expect your piece(s), and you’ll be charged when it ships.

And know that Prime members will still get free shipping!  Should something not fit, you will also have up to 30 days to return the item for a full refund.

Can items sell out before the 30 hours?

Unfortunately… yes.  Many of the fabrics come in limited quantities which means items can technically sell out.  Some collections have had pieces sell out in only a few hours!

How can I be the first to know when it has launched?

You can sign up for text notifications here!  I actually have been signed up for 6+ months and I simply get one text when a new collection is launched.  I’m not one to sign up for notifications, but because of the limited timeline I appreciate the small reminder.

What is the sizing?

XXS – 3X and so far I feel like each piece runs true to size.  You’ll see what size I’m wearing in the product description and Amazon will call out if a piece fits loose, oversized or fitted.  Intentionally, nothing in this collection is fit-sensitive – aka wrap pieces, breezy camisoles, etc.

Is the fabric machine washable?

Yes – every piece should be machine washable!  The materials are modal, elastane, cotton and other comfortable (and soft!) fabrics that are low maintenance.  The fabrics will also be called out on the item details page.

These are pieces and fabrics I plan on wearing everyday myself.  I wouldn’t design something that I don’t personally find comfortable!

How many pieces total?

We haven’t decided just yet but it will definitely be under 10 pieces, all adult women’s clothing.

How are the pieces made?

Amazon’s Global Human Rights Principles are here should you want to read them (it goes into detail about safe and healthy workplaces, diversity and inclusion, suppliers, etc.).

What is the price range?

We haven’t confirmed exact prices, but each piece will absolutely be under $100.

Will it ship to _________?

The collection will be available worldwide, which is amazing!

What will the fit be like?

I have intentionally not designed anything fitted so that the pieces selected will be more accommodating to all kinds of body shapes and sizes.

The product description of each piece will display my height and what size I am wearing, and you can also reference the size chart to check your measurements with sizing (which is most important to determine your size!).

Can you give us a sneak peek?

Yes!  You can check out the saved stories on Instagram under “The Drop” for a sneak peek!

If you have any additional questions that weren’t listed here, I’d love to hear from you in the comment section below.  Thank you so much for sharing in this excitement with me.  I’ve absolutely designed this collection with all of you in mind – flattering, chic, comfortable, versatile and functional.  I can’t wait to see what you guys think!

Big big hugs, XO –
