let’s start with the most important fashion accessory…your iphone case! DUH! we don’t know about you, but we practically live on our phones and it’s the first thing people usually notice. so if you’re totally bored with your current case (we assume, it’s NOT a ban.do!), we have a solution. ditch your old case and pick up one of our RAD new cases. this collection was inspired by 60s pop fashion, champagne parties, girl gang trips to tulum, indie art, and twilight carnivals. got a fancy iphone 6? we’ve got those, too!
next up…drinkware. you know how “drink more water” inevitably ends up being a new year’s resolution? it’s ok, we’ve all been there. well, now with our sip sip tumblers, you have a super cute excuse to stay hydrated! and yes…kittens get thirsty too. oh, and just so you know, everyone…and we mean EVERYONE will want to know where you got your kittens tumbler. don’t say we didn’t warn you.
planning a girls getaway or bachelorette party? meet your new best friend – our too cold to hold drink sleeves! they’re a quick and easy way to personalize your party and keep your itty bitty hands nice and warm. because when you’re on the beach, cold hands on your warm body is just…ew. speaking of beaches, everyone this summer is going to have straps for their sunnies, trust us. that’s why we made these cool beach, please sunglass straps. keep your sunnies in sight…you don’t want to go losing those $250 dollar karen walkers. are we right?!
next up? BAGS BAGS AND MORE BAGS! sure we’ve done bags in the past, but nothing like this. so let’s start with the beach…the ban.do girl gang loves the beach. so we wanted to create the coolest cooler bags (pun intended) on the planet. and voila, the super chill cooler bag was born. it’s gonna be a tough choosing between our ticket stripe bag (like that hit of neon? we sure do!) and our soon-to-be-famous watermelon bag. ps – just between us gals, that watermelon bag is based off a vintage watermelon tote jen found at the rose bowl flea. kinda cool, huh? ::insert watermelon emoji::
next, don’t you hate going to the grocery store with your basic reusable tote? sure you want to be environmentally friendly, but that doesn’t mean you have to settle for burlap or plain canvas. you’ll be anything but basic with our i want it all shoppers. aren’t they perfect? and why not look chic as hell loading up on la croix or taking those old clothes to goodwill. just sayin.
and can we please give it up for our peekaboo clutches. we made things crystal clear with these gems. show off your ban.do iphone case, personalized debit cards, tom ford lipstick, and kitschy keychains with these see-through cuties. plus, they come in two hip colors – sup lilac and summer mint!
did someone say three day weekend? YES! enter our new getaway duffle bag. this duffle is no joke. it’s large enough for a long weekend getaway and just cute enough for a slumber party with your girl gang. they come in two fresh patterns including extreme supercute hearts and ticket stripe.
if you need something a little more fancy, look no further. our everything tote comes in rose gold and silver metallics and are so pretty to look at. plain and simple. oh no! your wallet broke again? good think we just released our big spender wallets! these wallets will keep all yo dolla dolla billz supah organized. your hard earned cash will thank you! and if you’re going out tonight, our fancy clutch is CLUTCH when you don’t want to lose your purse when you’re out on that dance floor shakin your bootay!
and last but not least, we’re so happy we made this porcelain catchall tray. now we have a place to store all of our ban.do jewelry, flair, and secrets!
like what you see? we’re throwing a HUGE party to celebrate our new collection. if you’re in los angeles and want to shop the new collection, pick up one of our famous goody goodie bags, and hang with the ban.do girl gang, click here!

we’re wishing our super sparkly girl gang member, dolly parton, the happiest of birthdays! every year, she continues to proves that MORE is definitely MORE. the saying “the higher the hair, the closer to God” is as true now as it was back then. this gal knows how to have fun and look good all at the same time. so happy birthday dolly – keep shining on!
oh, and we’re aiming to make dolly parton’s birthday a national holiday! who’s with us?
