let the confetti fly!



cause it's new year's eve. while we sip champagne and kiss the loved ones around us we are thanking our lucky stars for 2009. this past year has been such an amazing one for us at ban.do! It started off by us winning the Sweetest Things Style from Daily Candy which we still are excited about! the beautiful no. 89 made the cover of Instyle Weddings and we found big fans of this ban.do in Taylor Swift (but Tay loves this one and this one too!) Zooey Deschanel and Katy Perry.

2009 also saw the launch of our collars and corsages which we found you beauties loved! we started our mondays funday coupon and we began giftcards which some lucky ladies recieved over the holidays!

there is so much more that we could cover but we would be going on and on (and on and on!) all we can say is thank you thank you thank you! without the support of you we would not be ban.do :) we are very excited with all the new things we will be launching in 2010 and the changes that are coming. we can't wait to share with you all our ideas. please have a safe and happy new year's evening. plus we think this and this would be perfect for ringing in the new year!

new year's sparkle



now that the holidays are over - new year's eve is right around the corner and we haven't the slightest clue what to wear for the big night. ban.do believes sparkles should be a part of your every day wardrobe, and NYE is the perfect time to go all out. this editorial shoot with the gorgeous zoe saldana published in the september issue of vanity fair got us inspired to bring out vintage glam for ringing in 2010. we love the 40's look that's happening in the photos. plus a headpiece would be the perfect addition to your NYE ensemble. perhaps we could suggest this or this? what are you planning on wearing? if you wear a ban.do be sure to send it to us at pretty@shopbando.com! :) xoxo

ps. mondays=fundays coupon code is "partylike2009" enter it at checkout and receive $30 off any one piece from our ban.do line. ends at midnight tonight. and if that isn't enough of a discount then check out our sale page. prices have been SLASHED!!

vintage inspiration


we think this is a nice way to start your morning: a hot cup of coffee, cozy slippers and the Today show. so when Sarah Jessica Parker was a guest yesterday to talk about her new movie we were overwhelmed with excitement. mainly because we knew she would wear a totally amazing outfit. and boy did the girl deliver! as most of you know we here at ban.do are vintage junkies.  if it looks like it came from another decade or era we are majorly obesessed. so imagine how much our hearts fluttered at the sight of SJP's vintage look. her knitted sweater and skirt combination. love! flower appliqu├ęs. love! layered bracelets and rings. love! gorgeous 60's/70's wavy hair. l-o-v-e-! so fantastically fabulous - yes please! we hope this inspires you lovelies this weekend!

thursdays can be fun days, too.


so we officially launched our new ban.do and bridal collections, and if you are on our mailing list, you already know (if you aren't, what the heck are you waiting for?). you would also know that you have until midnight tonight to get $20 off of the ban.do line if you enter "hooray" at checkout. this one is quickly becoming a crowd favorite, oh and this one, too.

and don't forget today is the last day for this.
