This week’s Don’t Dillydally uncovers lots of cozy finds like a comforter-inspired puffer from Buffy and Madewell, a candle that smells just like Dunkin’ Old Fashioned Donuts, and a waffle-knit onesie from Everlane that comes in the perfect holiday-season red.
In case you want to add a little bling to your face-mask lineup, Baby Phat now makes reusable ones featuring a bejeweled version of their iconic cat logo. The mask comes in three shades — black, pink, and a neutral beige — but we’re fond of the black in particular. It goes with just about anything and has a hint of color thanks to the rosy pink crystals.
Dunkin x Homesick
Dunkin’ Donuts has teamed up with Homesick (makers of wildly popular and accurate state-themed candles) on a candle collection inspired by the brand’s iconic coffee and donuts. For a subtly sweet scent we recommend Old Fashioned, which smells of cinnamon sugar and nutmeg and has base notes of clove and sugar cane.
More candle news: Just in time for the holiday, Diptyque has released their ultrapopular Baies/Berries candle in the limited black hand-blown glass, a perennial and highly giftable favorite. The black currant-and-rose scent make any room feel a little more expensive — and the glass container makes a sleek display once the candle’s burned down.
Mandalorian x Williams Sonoma
In possibly the most creative Mandalorian collaboration yet, Williams Sonoma is partnering with the Star Wars franchise to create macarons inspired by a scene from season two, when Baby Yoda uses the Force to steal cookies. Williams Sonoma worked with California artisans to craft these custom-colored almond macarons, which are hand-piped with vanilla filling and arrive at your door chilled and ready to eat.
Amazon x (PRODUCT) RED
Amazon has partnered with (PRODUCT) RED for a limited-edition version of its fourth-generation Echo in the classic red colorway. The new Echo spherical shape updates the classic puck design and has an improved speaker that delivers rich, clear sound. It also includes two Phillips Hue bulbs, which can be synced with the Echo to voice control your lighting.
Madewell x Buffy
Madewell and Buffy have teamed up for a puffy winter-wear collection, inspired by Buffy’s bedding, that includes a long puffer, mittens, an eye mask, and a scarf. We’re particularly excited about the blanket-like puffer, which comes in a winter-white shade and is made of recycled nylon and quilted tencel lyocell. The jacket is filled with ecofriendly PrimaLoft, a down alternative that’s just as warm.
Another buzzy puffer launch: Girlfriend Collective released its version in four colors and three lengths — cropped, classic, and long. Bonus: They’re included in the brand’s Black Friday sale, which takes 30 percent off everything on the site. We have our eyes on the cropped version in this mustardy-brown shade, which (like the rest of GC’s clothing) is made from recycled plastic bottles and will keep you toasty in temperatures as low as 18 degrees.
In case you want a coat with a little more detailing, this full-length, quilted down puffer from Zara is a good deal and looks much more expensive than it is, thanks to little details like a removable hood, snap closures, and an adjustable, drawstring waist.
Onesie season is underway, and waffle knits are on the rise. The two converge in this onesie from Everlane, which has chunky buttons, ribbed cuffs, and comes in this festive cayenne color
Floyd x Fully
Floyd has teamed up with office furniture company Fully to create an attractive standing desk that’ll upgrade your WFH setup. The desk riffs on Fully’s classic Jarvis desk and comes in several tasteful shades (including this birch-and-white combination) to fit a range of décor styles and color schemes. The engineered steel frame is a Fully staple but the birch top is a Floyd innovation, designed to withstand endless hours of work. It also comes with an OLED handset that can be programmed to accommodate virtually any height. The desk is currently $125 off when you use the code CYBR20, which, we think, is a very good deal.
Boy Smells x Ganni
This Nordstrom exclusive collaboration brings together cool-girl Danish fashion brand Ganni and cool-girl candle brand Boy Smells. Park Life evokes autumn with notes of ginger, basil, fig, and sage, along with more woody scents like sandalwood and creamy tonka bean to round it out.
Nordstrom x Ugg
Another Nordstrom exclusive: UGG just released a cozy collection inspired by New York during the holidays that our friends at the Cut have called “cozy yet stylish.” UGG classics like the shearling boot and Fluff Yeah slippers are done in both metallics and playful, sunset hues. We especially like this sporty jacket, which is made from faux fur and comes in a tonal gray-and-black.
