Friday Finds : More Modcloth Designs and a Contest

Before we get to the finds, I want to mention that Modcloth is having a design contest in which you can design your own print for one of their clothing pieces.  I'd love to see some steampunk designs in the contest.  Details are at the bottom of this post.

Castle Party Vest - It's not often I look at a clothing item by a mainsteam fashion store and think: that looks like a steampunk-specific costume piece.  Plus, I actually think it's a nice piece that would work with a variety of outfits.

 Step Back in Time Socks - These are too cute, right?

Festooned for Festivities Hair Pins - These hair pins are connected by chains, which would be perfect for a steampunk hairstyle!  This is also a possible DIY idea.

 Flair-y Tale Boot - This is a gorgeous midnight blue boot perfect for steampunk.

ModCloth Make The Cut Contest: 'Prints Charming' Have you always dreamed of becoming a fashion designer? Well now that dream can come true! The ModClothMake The Cut program is a recurring design contest that invites the ModCloth Community to design garments, graphics, or fabric prints. Its main purpose is to further their mission of democratizing fashion by producing clothing designed by community members. YOU can become a designer at ModCloth!

How does the contest work?Entrants will design a new print for a private label dress silhouette that is already being produced! Contestants have two weeks to submit designs. After the submission period, the ModCloth Creative Team will narrow down the submissions to 20, which will be sent to the guest judge, Amanda Needham, Costume Designer for Portlandia. After Amanda has chosen the 10 finalists, they will be posted on the Be The Buyer page for voting. There will be a week for the Community to vote, then ModCloth will contact the winner and update the contest announcement with the big news!
