Sponsored Post: Luxury Children’s Wear by Panache Box

PanacheBox Logo

We were recently contacted by our friends over at PanacheBox to see if my daughter would be interested in trying out a box of their gorgeous European styled clothes for back to school.  Of course we were interested!  The clothes came packaged in a lovely hexagon shaped box filled with grey tissue.  A muslin bag held all the neatly folded pieces of clothing.  It was a like a gift inside a gift!

The wardrobe selection that PanacheBox sent us was incredible.  All the pieces worked beautifully together.  Being a subscription model, you can either choose the pieces yourself or have a stylist select them for you.  The outfits they chose were stylish, modest, and absolutely sweet in nature.  Not only are the outfits beautiful, my daughter could play in them!  It definitely made this busy mom’s life a ton easier!
