Didn’t See This One Coming: Ann Taylor Gets Into The Polish Game 
What perfumes are to celebrities, nail polish is to retailers: Everyone has to have one. The latest fashion brand to bite the lacquer bullet is Ann Taylor Loft, who has announced plans to launch a 15-shade collection come February. 
From the looks of it, there are no major surprises in terms of color selection. Like the brand itself, the hues offer a variety of solid staples—think a classic red, an obligatory navy blue, and, of course, a range of neutral beiges. 
Expected to retail for a mere $6.50 a bottle, we’re looking to get our hands on these colors ASAP. (And is it just us, or are the bottle reminiscent of American Apparel’s polishes?)

Birchbox + Ann Taylor Shopping Events! Swing By and Say Hi

We told you yesterday about our exciting partnership with Ann Taylor. In honor of our August box theme, Finishing School, we shot a mini style guide featuring Birchbox staffers wearing their picks from Ann Taylor’s fall collection, and showed you how to pair those looks with our beauty product must-haves for looking flawless in a flash. 

We knew you might want to see the pieces in action on you, which is why we’re putting on shopping events tomorrow (August 15) at nine Ann Taylor stores around the country—hosted by local style bloggers. (Hint: take a peek above at some of the bloggers’ behind-the-scenes pics for an idea of what to expect!)

Everyone who attends an event will receive a complimentary Birchbox (packed with products from natural brand Juice Beauty), plenty of yummy treats and libations, and—for a few lucky cities out there—an opportunity to get a mini-makeover from Juice Beauty on the spot.
