Extra, Extra, read all about it! Earlier today Ban.do confirmed the rumor flying around that the Ban.do girlgang is releasing another collection. I spend the occasion Sunday afternoon scrolling through @ShopBando's mentions (i.e. the "Photos Of [insert account name here] tab) so this announcement didn't come as a complete surprise since a few of the pictures hinted at a few new pieces. I will admit, though, that I wasn't expecting it to happen so soon. I was planning a big spree for the beginning of spring since that's when I expected the collection to release and I did freak out juuusstt a little bit when I was put on the spot with the 24 hour notice announcement.
Th best part of Ban.do's new collection is really the fact that even though they announced it would be released tomorrow, when I visited the Ban.do website a few hours ago to "pre-shop" I happened upon the new pieces. Frazzle dazzled, I added sooo many things to my cart only to have to go back and take most of them out when I saw the subtotal. I ended up getting the OMG flair pack of pins, the Fleurs Bonbons Champagne striped tote bag, and the Kittens Get Thirsty Too tumbler. I was super disappointed when the heart printed duffel bag I was looking forward to buying ended up being $54 and the incredibly cute peek-a-boo lilac and pink clutch turned out to be $24. And for any of you hoping to get your hands on the watermelon bag pictured above, just know that it's actually an insulated cooler that you can carry food and drinks in on spontaneous trips to the beach (...or country club pool) and semi-low key house parties (...or girls nights in). NOT a really cool and totally girlgang worthy carryall/duffel bag. Which, you can tell, was a little disappointing to me since I was kind of planning to get one for a few of my weekend trips. So what are you waiting for?!?! Get your butt over to ShopBando.com. Ban.do has a history of selling out reeaally fast and not restocking their limited edition collections so act fast, honey buns!
