a dress that begs for a ban.do

we saw this dress while perusing jcrew. how gorgeous is it? and doesn't it just beg for a ban.do. we think we found the perfect one. oh, and we couldn't resist the purse either.

new shop page!

hooray! we've just added a new shop page with lots of great new pieces. so get on over there and click your little hearts out!

one of our favorites

we've been super busy creating several new pieces for the site. we had a photo shoot this weekend and the new shop page is being assembled as i type. jamie and i picked this one as our favorite from the shoot. we bought the vintage leaves a over a week ago and we have been waiting to be inspired. thank you jerell from project runway. kenley isn't the only one wearing feathers.

jen + swap meets = true love

i'm hopelessly addicted to swap meets. i have been for a long time. and it's always fun to find new things to collect. i've been collecting vintage photos for a long time, and this morning it occurred to me that it would be fun to look for vintage photos of girls who are either wearing something fun in their hair or just look like they would be up for wearing a ban.do if they were around today. if you have any photos that you think would work for this little project email them to info@shopbando.com. here's one of my favorites. she would definitely wear a ban.do . . . don't you agree?

this was pretty fantastic!

one of our wishes (we have lots of them) was to be featured on daily candy. it came true in our second week of business. and that was pretty darn fantastic!!!

and so it begins

well, that's not entirely true. "it" actually began on august 4th, but we are just now getting around to blogging about it. we thought it would be fun to take you along for the ride. since, as it turns out, starting a fashion business is pretty exciting. so if you need some excitement, you're in the right place.
