This month we have a super fun giveaway for you and your favorite ladies! Stylish and socially conscious garment bags from Jendarling – what a perfect gift for your bridesmaids!

Jendarling Bags Jendarling Bags

Made of 100% cotton, these aren’t your average garment bags – they’re made in San Francisco with locally-sourced and repurposed materials, and they’re super chic! I especially love the Edie with her black and white stripes and kelly green details, and the Chevron style would be perfect for a bride’s something blue! The clutches and pouches are also perfect accessories, made with locally-sourced leather and lined with vintage fabric (I think the black croc clutch is my favorite).

I have sort of a thing for pineapples. I do love how yummy they are, but I also love them as graphic and visual elements – and I love that they’re a symbol of hospitality. What a perfect motif for a wedding! Instead of going beachy, I wanted this inspiration board to feel a little unexpected, so I gave it a sort of vintage preppy twist. And I think it would make for a pretty fun party, if I do say so myself!
