ban.do book club

remember the  inspiration wall at our old studio? well, we couldn’t bear parting with all of the images that had inspired us for so long, so we decided to get a little crafty. we collected our favorite fashion forward images from  the bunch and put them in a book. now anytime we need a pinterest break or just want to stroll down memory lane, we know where to go! here are some of our favorite pages!

snapshot – september

we love bright colors as much as the next gal (hello, have you seen our instagram?), but this month was all about detoxing from bright summery colors and resetting our color palette. whites and blacks are cool…but gold is AWESOME! this month we were inspired by gold bars, golden tickets, golden arches (we’re loving it), and the golden girls. you can kind of say we truly embraced the phrase “STAY GOLD” and celebrating this metallic hue! this is september.
