This brand gives a whole new meaning to the concept of “shopping”.
Amazon’s The Drop is a very trendy and easy way to buy clothes, shoes, and accessories on the site. Because Amazon is so huge, The Drop is a simplified adaptation of all the most stylish fashions, some of which are recommended by celebrities and influencers.
With holiday gatherings approaching and like every woman has a complete wardrobe but nothing to wear, I decided to shop The Drop for some holiday essentials and try to create a complete outfit.
After logging into my Amazon account, I headed to the landing page to see what’s now in style and I’ll be working in a warmer-than-average December in New York City. The page is immaculately laid out, starting with Staples by The Drop, including jackets, cardigans (you’ll be back for these someday – they look super comfy) and other cozy winter clothing.
After scrolling around a bit, I saw more evening looks, and I started the process of finding the right sizes. This is always a struggle for me as a bigger person but not exactly plus size, as there are never models or reviews quite like mine. Well, thank you Amazon, when I clicked through my items they all appeared on at least two models, showing a smaller and larger body type with size recommendations in the descriptions.
Even better, since The Drop has grown in popularity, so have helpful comments and reviews. I like to see real photos of real women in the items, so this was very helpful in my online shopping process.
I settled on this two-tone silk shirt and two sizes just in case, a matching skirt, an oversized white jacket and a pair of chunky white heels that I thought would work on the winter white look and transition into summer. Frugal – I know.
Then came the waiting game, which I can’t stand because of my impatience with Type A and also all the shipping delays lately. Fortunately, when you shop on Amazon for clothes, you can get them quickly, even without an Amazon Prime account. I chose standard shipping, ordered my items on Monday and received it at my doorstep on Saturday. Not only did this make me very happy, but also relieved, that I would have plenty of time to try my items and make exchanges if needed before the holidays.
As a great weekend treat, my box arrived at the top of the weekend, with each piece individually wrapped and neatly folded with tissue, to prevent the delicate silk from wrinkling too much. Without further ado I tried everything, except the blue top is too big and the shoes are too tight, they all fit exactly as shown on the site.
