The Voloshin X The Mom Edit Collection Is Here!

Google+ Pinterest LinkedIn Tumblr +

Any longtime readers likely understand just how freaking excited I am to be launching a special collection with Amy Voloshin. Voloshin, her namesake label, has quickly become the cornerstone of my summer wardrobe — especially when we travel. Designed in Philadelphia, made by skilled artisans in India — often using organic fabrics — not only are her pieces beautiful, but they all have that ‘something special meets practical’ vibe we endlessly search for over here at The Mom Edit. (And yes — our collection is organic, machine washable and dryer-friendly.)

But before I get too far into it, there’s one thing you’ve gotta know: we made a really small batch.

Why? Well…our first-ever collection, nerves, blah blah blah — the usual reasons, I suppose. Which means…if anything strikes your fancy, I strongly suggest you pre-order to make sure you get the size you want. These pieces are only available as part of a very limited run. Pieces are scheduled to ship out on June 24th.

If you aren’t yet familiar with Voloshin, I’ve been lucky enough over the last few years to get little peeks into Amy’s creative process (check out our interview with her, here — the block printing discussion around minute 4:40 is especially cool), so I was beyond thrilled when we started talking about a collaboration.

Since I’m such a giant Voloshin fan already, it made sense to start with one of my all-time favorites:  Voloshin’s Talita Dress. For this special collaboration, we shortened the length a bit (me and my short hemlines ha!), added a pair of breezy shorts, pull-on pants (for the shorts-haters) and two perfect tops. The tops are based on two well-worn tops in my closet — the ones I always seem to pack when we travel (with a few tweaks, of course to make them even better) — and the whole collection is available in both navy and a gorgeous neutral stripe.

My favorite part of this process? The pattern  I’m nothing if not stripe-obsessed and the temptation of seeing what Amy could do with a stripe (hand drawn!!) was too much to pass up. We played around with all sorts of color options….but were ultimately blown away by the chic neutral stripe. It’s wearable and beautiful yet so unexpected and interesting (especially when worn as a set) and we’ve all been DYING for this collection to drop. Because, fundamentally, this is literally the collection I’ve been dreaming of.

And just for fun….since this collection was designed with love in the city of brotherly love….we named each piece after one of our favorite spots in Philly. 

The VOLOSHIN X THE MOM EDIT COLLECTION

All items are available for pre-order now, in our newly launched shop! As mentioned earlier, Voloshin will ship out all pre-orders as soon as they’re ready — the current ship date is June 24th. (All shipping and returns will be handled by Voloshin, since they’re already so good at this stuff. Free shipping on anything over $150, everything else is a flat shipping fee of $6.)

The Carina Ruffle Flounce Dress

Named after Trattoria Carina (one of our fav spots to eat outside), the Carina Ruffle Flounce Dress is a TME take on a much-beloved Voloshin classic. Available in both the breezy stripe and the insanely soft navy cloud fabric, this dress is dead easy to dress up or down. (And the sizing is such that it’s a pretty forgiving piece even if it’s a bit big or small – just order your normal size and you should be fine.)

Like all pieces in the collection, it’s made from 100% organic cotton gauze, and is machine-washable (dry on low heat).

Also, please notice the tassels. I was especially excited about those.

The Kate Trapeze Top

Named after my friend Kate Jacoby — THE reason I drink and eat so. many. desserts. at Vedge (we have literally NEVER left without dessert because Kate is such a freaking genius) — the Kate Trapeze Top is flirty, fun, and basically the best thing ever to wear with denim cut-offs. Or jeans. Or trousers.  Or….the matching pants. I DIE.

The Morgan Fly-Away Top

Since Morgan’s Pier was one of THE first places my husband and I fell in love with when we first moved to Philly….I was thrilled to include them in this collection. The Morgan Fly-Away Top has been cut to look like a simple, boyish tee from the front (but a little more lux)…and then you see the back: ALL DRAMA.

The Lutécia Drawstring Shorts

The Lutécia Drawstring Shorts are named after my Sunday morning happy place — a super-authentic french cafe named Cafe Lutécia. These little shorts are the type of thing I tend to run around in all summer —especially at the shore. They look especially chic as a matching set.  My only word of caution is that these shorts run small  I’m wearing an XS in these photos, but will likely go up a size when the actual pieces come in. Depending on your body type, going up two sizes from the norm might be smart.

The Grace Drawstring Beach Pants

The Grace Drawstring Beach Pants are going to replace my wear-all-day sweatpants this summer. Bonus that they dress up so effortlessly, too. They’re named after Grace Tavern, which seems appropriate since I’ve frequented Grace in both sweatpants & sneakers….AND a formal gown. I mean….burgers are burgers, man, and Grace has some good ones. 

These pants also run really small — so size up one size from your norm. Also….the inseam miiiiight be too short for some of you. If you are petite, congratulations!! Say hello to your new pants!! If you are taller…stay tuned. Once the full batch comes in, we’re going to make tall, willowy Gwen try on a few sizes and see how they look cropped.

So. To recap: Pre-orders are live in The Mom Edit’s Shop, now.  Size up in the pants and shorts. Tops and dress are true to size (and have forgiving cuts).  Everything ships out June 24th, and when they’re gone….they’re GONE. Everything is 100% organic cotton gauze, machine washable, and can be dried on low. 

Gang, thanks so much for your support. Working with a local designer (especially one as talented as Amy Voloshin) has been such a dream, and we’ve learned so freaking much in the process. I really hope you love these pieces as much as we do.

xo,

  1. So gorgeous, congrats! Question: does Carina have adjustable straps? Am worried she’ll be a little too low on short-torsoed me. Fingers crossed!

    Would love to see how you would style some of these pieces for the office in the summer. I love them but I’m blanking apart from throwing a jacket on the dress (so original).

    • YES! The straps are definitely adjustable! Amy likes hers to fit a little more conservatively up top and I like mine…well…NOT. 🙂

  2. I know they’re not part of the collection, but what are the jeans you’re wearing here? They’re fantastic!

  3. Christine Melton on

    I live near Philadelphia and recently discovered the Voloshin store. I bought the very feminine and pretty Rosalia pop over top and the comfortable, fun and stylish Neves pant online and the clothes fit beautifully!

  4. Jennifer Daniel on

    I wish there were pictures of other people besides Shana so it was easier to imagine the clothes on different body types! Shana looks great, but everything looks great on her.

  5. Erin Foley Kozak on

    Congrats!! Really love the Kate trapeze top and the Grace pants! I think i’m around Shana’s size. I’m 5‘3“ 117 +/- lbs. Size 24 jeans. Would I go up a size to a Small in the pants? Love the petite-ish length!

  6. I’m so freaking in love with everything! I couldn’t decide which one I liked more: The Kate Trapeze Top or the Morgan Fly-Away, so I got BOTH. I need to stop staring at this post, or I’ll end up with everything.

    Ok, after a few weeks of staring, and leaving the page, and coming back to the page… I ordered the Grace pants and Kate Trapeze top and I CANNOT WAIT!!! I love the navy blue, and am already thinking of all the places I will wear this outfit! Hoping it fits like a dream!!

  8. JENNIFER CABLER on

    I hope in the future the pants can fit curvy women. I bought both pairs and they run not just small…ridiculously small. I have 39in hips and 29 inch waist…could not get the large even over my bottom at all. I know you say to size up, which I did usually wearing a size medium or 8 pants…but whew, the measurements don’t even seem right in the description. I am sending back, but super bummed to not be able to size up and exchange. I wish I could leave this comment on the actual shopping page, but I hope this helps some potential buyers. Thanks always for the marvelous blog! I am a long time reader and the clothing line is gorgeous.

  9. Ok, my order arrived! Dammit Shana- I didn’t want to love it, ($$$) but I LOVE IT!!! It’s super soft, pants are not too wide, top is swingy- but so damn cute!!! I bought a navy lace bandeau bra to go with – perfect! For ref: top is medium, pants are large. I typically wear medium (8/10) tops (38 D) and 28/29 in jeans and got the large pants based on recommendations. Pants are a touch long in my 5”1’ self but are fine with a little heel. I’m in love!! How do I post pics?
