Video: Learn How To Style Your ModCloth Headband

Depending on which box you got this month, you may have noticed a happy little headband from retro-chic site ModCloth tucked inside your delivery. As we mentioned yesterday, they’re currently guest editing a selection of road trip essentials in our Shop, which includes this fun ’50s-style accessory. 

We must admit, upon first glance at this cutie-patootie piece, we were a little miffed. How exactly do you put it on? Well, it’s beyond simple, but rather than explain it to you (reading can be sooo boring), we thought we’d rather let the experts show you themselves. Click through for a video starring ModCloth’s creative stylist, Annie, as she demos not one, not two, not three, but amazingly four different ways to wear this fun and flattering headband.

Getting to Know The ModCloth Team

Rarely a does go by that we don’t browse through ModCloth, an online boutique that indulges our love for full skirts and Peter Pan collars like nowhere else. In fact, we love ModCloth so much, we asked them to guest edit a selection of summer road trip essentials in our Shop. And to get to know the ladies behind the fashions, we asked their staffers to fill out this short survey covering everything from their latest in-office obsession to their favorite post-work hangout.

1. Beauty product most likely to be seen around the office: Fresh’s Sugar Rose Lip Treatment

2. Best new addition to the ModCloth shop: The Premiere Collection of Make the Cut, our first ever community-driven design competition and line!

3. Current office-wide obsession: British designer Motel’s wildly patterned pants. We can’t get over the lipstick print on this pair.

6 Out-of-the-Box Fashion Items Inspired by Beauty

We fell hard for Natalie Alcala last fall, when the LA-based writer and blogger spent a week guest blogging for us. In fact, we loved her posts so much that we asked her to be a contributing editor. In addition to blogging for us once a week, she’ll also be writing for the Birchbox Magazine and keeping us up to speed on all things fashion, beauty, and fun.

Thanks to brilliant nail art gurus like Elizabeth Monson, we know that beauty can certainly be inspired by fashion. But can fashion be inspired by beauty? According to a handful of game-changing designers, the answer is a resounding yes. To prove it, here’s a roundup of some quirky-cool pieces to help us all wave our beautification flags high.

Prom season is right around the corner, and here at Birchbox we’ve been reminiscing about our own prom experiences. The consensus? We’ll always laugh about the semi-regrettable styling decisions we made as teens: the streaky self-tans, the crunchy curls, and (most memorably) the pouffy princess dresses that wouldn’t look out of place on Toddlers & Tiaras
