amazon drop collection

My collection with Amazon The Drop is now LIVE, I can’t believe it!  We have been working on fine tuning this collection since 2019.  The launch moved from spring to summer and now it is here.  I’m elated to share it with you guys!

The goal was to create a collection that is sophisticated and versatile.  All of the pieces can easily be mixed and matched to create so many looks, all while keeping the color palette neutral and timeless with black, white and caramel.  These are pieces that you can dress up for the office, going out or a date or dress down with denim, flats and sneakers for mom life, work-from-home life or weekend lounging.

The collection consists of 9 styles and fabric details for each piece can be found on the product details page for each item.  The pricing ranges from $29.90 – $59.90 and all items should ship within 3-4 weeks; they are all made to order (which eliminates waste!).  I really hope you love these pieces as much as I do.  Thank you so much for all of your excitement and support.  It means so, so, so much to me.

And now, let’s introduce the ladies –

Animal Print Camisole

I love this camisole so much we created it in python as well.  It has a v-cut in both the front and back which I find so flattering.

I’m a 34B and am wearing a small.

Python Camisole

And here she is in the python print.  You can wear this one with the matching wrap skirt or easily style it on its own.  I love it with jeans but it would easily work with a black pant or skirt!  It also looks fabulous with white denim or a white blazer.

Python Wrap Skirt

I love this skirt so much I could marry it.  I think it’s so flattering, looks great on curves and looks just as chic with matching top, a black mock neck or crop top.  I also think it would look amazing with ankle boots, OTK boots and a turtleneck.  A year-round piece!

The fit is loose and breezy, a true wrap skirt that can grow with your body (hello postpartum or #quarantine15 life).  I’m wearing a small but could likely also do an extra-small.

Black Double Breasted Vest

The outerwear piece you can layer over everything, all year long.  I can’t wait to wear this over a turtleneck in the fall!  When I worked in offices, I loved layering vests and blazers over spaghetti strap pieces to make them work-appropriate.

The fit is loose and breezy, if you’re in between sizes I would size down.  I’m wearing a small.

Animal Print Slip Midi Dress

I was really intentional with the length of this dress so it could be easily worn with both sneakers, flats or heels.  The back cuts straight across to accommodate a strapless bra, and it can be fabulously cinched at the waist with a belt or belt bag.  Chic!  I wish we also had this dress in python, I love it that much!

White Wrap Around Shirt

I think this is the most interesting and unique piece in the collection.  I love a crisp white top, but the wrap element of this shirt makes it anything but boring.  You can tie it in the front in bow or in the back in a simple knot.  I prefer this top tucked in to show some shape, but you can just as easily style it untucked with any pair of jeans or pants.  The open cuffed sleeves are also a special treat!

I would recommend ordering your usual size.  I’m wearing a small.

Caramel Joggers

I looked for a caramel jogger set for over a year.  I’m not joking – it’s so hard to find one that is both flattering and comfortable!  So we made one.  Even better, there are two matching tops!  You can wear all three together or choose your preferred matching piece.  The joggers also look great with a simple white or black shirt.  The material feels like the tshirt sheets you loved so much in college.  The.  Best.

I’m wearing smalls but could probably also do a medium in the jogger for a looser fit.

Caramel Long-Sleeved and Mock Neck Sleeveless Top

I love these tops.  You can wear all three together for a chic Yeezy moment or style them all as separates.  All are the same color and fabric and wildly soft.

The cut of the sleeveless top does work best with a racerback bra.  It’s a really pretty cut that is not your basic sleeveless top.  You can see the long-sleeved shirt styled with denim above!  I have a girlfriend who styled these tops with white denim and it is *chef’s kiss!*

I think these both run true to size, and I would recommend ordering your usual size.  I’m wearing a smalls in both.

And there we have it!  Let me know what you think and I would love to know which pieces you could see yourself wearing.  Thank you so much for your encouragement and support.  You guys are the foundation of CBL and every opportunity I have is thanks to all of you, so thank you so much from the bottom of my heart.  XO –

  1. Already grabbed my favorite pieces! Loving the animal print! Have followed your style for years, how exciting to be able to design a collection. This is actually my first ever post, but I wanted to say thank for being awesome and authentically you.

    1. Jaci – this is the nicest message. Thank you so much!! Your support means a lot to me and I’m constantly reminded that women like you are the only reason I have these opportunities. Thank you. Truly!

  2. These pieces are gorgeous! I shopped the collection not 5 minutes after it dropped and the white wrap shirt was already sold out, but I got my hands on every other piece and am so excited! You should be very proud, and I feel like I can speak for all of your readers when I say we are very proud of you!!

    1. Erika. This is the NICEST message. Thank you so so much. I wouldn’t have this collection without women like you so I can’t thank you enough. I hope you love your pieces when they come in!!

  3. Already ordered three pieces! Looking forward to wearing them. You are amazing and this collection is fabulous!

  4. So bummed! I was on a plane when this launched and missed out on my size. How do returns work, if someone returns are those who missed out able to purchase those returns? Such a good collection! You should be so proud!!

    1. Thank you so much Jen! And you’re exactly right – if there are returns, those items will be relisted on the website. So once pieces are made and mailed in about 2 weeks, there IS a chance they could be back on the site!

  5. Hi Kathleen, everything is fabulous! I really wanted the jogger sweatsuit but all pieces are sold out. Will there be any added items? This is perfect for working from home.

    1. Thank you for your support, Teresa! I wish there was a larger inventory! Amazon has control of the fabric and unfortunately there are not currently plans to restock. I love seeing which pieces you guys loved and it’s definitely encouragement to try to do something else in the future!

  6. I couldn’t log onto Amazon early enough and by the time I did… everything was SOLD out!:(
    Will the piece be restocked?

    1. Unfortunately not – but if there are returns, those pieces will be put back on the website. So it might be worth checking back in after about 2-3 weeks!

  7. I am thrilled for you and bummed for me. Everything is sold out! What a wonderful response to your fabulous drop collection! Please, oh please consider a re-stock or doing this again.

    1. Thank you so much Robin! Since Amazon manufactures the pieces, they would be the ones in control of inventory. But I appreciate your support. Wish I had more pieces!

  8. So stinkin’ proud of you! Beautiful collection and so YOU! Snagged 3 items.

  9. If you ever do the caramel joggers again, let me know! I got on as soon as I got the text but the pants were already gone! Congrats on a great collection.

      1. I have been following you for a few years now…I am so excited that you decided to do the drop! I just want to make sure you make the joggers again….in that color…Love Love Love all your postings!

  10. Are you already sold out of everything? It tells me that everything is sold out already 🙁
