The Inspiration Behind Our First (Ever) Box

Now that you've gotten a chance to look at the three boxes in the offing for this month, I'd love to share what lead me to these choices. I've never been overtly into vintage patterns, but I will admit my style tends towards classic lines and midcentury influences. The wiggle dress is a great amalgam of the old and the new. 

When I was choosing the patterns and fabrics, I was aiming for part Joan Holloway, part Ashley Graham, part Kate Middleton. For all three, these women are powerful, commanding and freakin' stylish. Also, the jewel-tone colors are perfect for three season wear. Emerald, ruby, onyx! Plus plaids! Oh my!

Check out the mood board I made for these boxes!
