We’ve been planning our dream weddings since we were five years old. So it’s no surprise that we can’t get enough of Lover.ly, a wedding inspiration site that lets you search through pics of swoon-worthy gowns, bouquets, and everything else you need for the big day. Once a week, the ladies behind Lover.ly will be sharing their best tips for getting through the craziness of the season—whether you’re standing at the altar or enjoying a view of it from the audience.
If you’re going retro on your wedding day or for your engagement photos, the key to not looking like you’re heading to a costume party (unless, of course, you’re having a costume wedding!) is subtlety. To pull this off, choose one or two vintage-inspired styles to imitate—think a vintage dress and makeup with modern hair—or do the updated 2013 version of your gown, hairstyle, and makeup. Here are four gorgeous vintage beauty looks to get you inspired.

With the sixth season of Mad Men nearing its end (cue sad cries here), the number one question on everyone’s mind remains—who is Bob Benson? Theories range from agency spy to your typical brown-noser (always ready with two cups of coffee!), but we still can’t say for sure. However, we do know that the talented and stylish actor who plays him, James Wolk, has a presence that’s impossible to ignore.
The gents of Birchbox Man caught up with the handsome fellow to find out which Mad Men character’s style he loves most, the item of clothing every man should own, and more.

Spring is supposedly in full bloom, which means it’s the perfect time to embrace tiny tweaks that result in jaw-droppingly awesome results. For some Birchbox staffers those changes might include a wardrobe refresh or a breakfast overhaul, but I always welcome a new season with a new hair color.
Inspired by Mad Men's Joan, I took the plunge and dyed my cool-toned brunette locks a warm red hue. To score the ginger-y shade, I trekked to Brooklyn’s High Horse Salon and handed my lame tresses over to hair stylist Allison.
