Hi, everyone! I’m so excited to give you a little look inside the inspiration behind our December collection. This adorable assortment is super special to all of us on the design team as it was inspired by so many lovely memories and sentiments wrapped up into this idea of the perfect cozy winter afternoon. Snow falling outside. A warm and cozy fireplace inside. Playing games … drinking hot cocoa … just being together.
We wanted to capture that warm and cozy feeling with our December collection. So, you are going to see some super soft knits, warm French terry linings, and touches of cozy Sherpa. Our color palette is really special too with lots of icy blues paired with pretty pastels and playful pops of colors – it just feels really good this time of year to have a touch of color! As far as apparel goes, we drew a lot of inspiration from classic MJ style – there’s print mixing for sure, especially with the Cozy Day Dress (a Wendy!), but we have also found the beauty in simplicity with the Weekend Plans dress. She was inspired by the Damsel in Gray lap dress from Home Grown. And if you check the pockets, you will see that little MJ surprise. 😉
Every piece in the collection is super easy – easy to wear, easy to match, easy to love. That goes for girls and baby as well as tween and women. Everything feels really good on – and that was really important to us. We want her to feel comfortable in this collection – for it to be something she wants to reach for again and again all the way ’til spring.
In addition to apparel, this assortment also has some really fun surprises too. We’re introducing a small collection of toys! These were all passion projects for the design team – things from our own or our girls’ childhood that we wanted to bring to life for your MJ gals to have and hopefully just love and love.
We can’t wait for you to see everything else in the new collection – it all arrives tomorrow, December 1! We hope you find a few special pieces that speak to you, that your girls will just fall in love with and just feel good and comfy and cozy this winter.
This just might be one of our favorite days of the year! Giving Tuesday is near and dear to our hearts, as giving is really what this unpredictable little company is all about. As a community, Matilda Jane works with a purpose: to bring happiness into the lives of the customers we adore and to Spread the Love to others as far as we can reach. Whether it’s a special note in an order or volunteering in our community, we live to make people smile.
Even before I had the pleasure of working at this amazing brand that she built, I remember our founder, Denise DeMarchis, blogging about just how excited she was about spreading a little cheer and MJC love to as many as she could with enough sparkly trees and presents to cover the floor. Boy, did she know how to make a girl, family, friend, and even someone she has never met feel special, and we want to pass that along to you and those in your life! So, here is how it all works … Spread the Love is where we get YOU, our sweet customers, involved in our giving as well. Ready to make someone’s day? Well, all you need to do is to send a little something about this special person who might need a surprise or a little pick me up, and if they are chosen WE will take care of all the legwork. Simple as that!
Spread the Love is our way to continue this amazing opportunity to brighten someone’s day or just be the perfect surprise to begin or end a week. The more we grow, the more we want to continue to give back and spread the MJC love wherever we can, from our own backyards to halfway around the world. From the very beginning, we wanted this company to make dreams come true. To Spread the Love. And to make the world a little better place, any way we could.
We love that you help us through your nominations and donating your time, talent, and more. You all are truly AMAZING!
