The Bento Box is for professional women who want to feel good about how they look while also symbolizing power and strength. These women want to look sophisticated but still be able to look stylish.
Each box will contain items personally picked for you by a stylist. You can expect to find four to six items per box. But don't be surprised if there are one or two extra things included. You'll receive dresses, one or two single items like shirts or skirts, and accessories.
To get a Bento Box, you will need to fill out a survey. Your answers will allow your personal stylist to understand your style, what type of outfits you might need, as well as color preferences and sizes. The survey will have questions on the following subjects:
Next, you will be presented with four outfits and asked to pick which option you would wear. The last few steps will be to provide your email address and your credit card info. Finally, you'll mention how frequently you'd like to receive your Bento box.

The Bento Box is free to order. You will only pay for the items you keep. If an item doesn't fit right, you can fill out the included exchange form, and M.M LaFleur will swap the item out for what you prefer, which is usually a different size or color. Prices typically range from $110 to $325.
In each box, you will receive 4 to 6 items. These can be dresses, shirts, skirts, jackets, or accessories. You might even find a surprise or two. It's not uncommon to have up to 9 items per box.
The clothing will be artfully folded and stored in a ziplock plastic envelope. This envelope will be used to return any unwanted items. You have four days to return what you don't want.

We know you might have some questions about how things work. Here are a few quick answers.
The Bento Box isn't a subscription service, so there's not much you should need to do to cancel. When you first sign up, you can list how frequently you'll receive a Bento box. If you change your mind and want to cancel, you can log into your account, or contact customer service and allow them to assist you.

As they expected, many women were. So, she came up with the idea of designing a wardrobe that was more practical and empowering for professional women.
Sarah attended Harvard University before entering the business world. Miyako has a fashion background and was the previous head designer for Zac Posen. And Narie attended Cornell University, where she graduated with a Bachelor's in Science. You can learn about M.M. LaFleur's new Washington D.C. location by watching this video.
