Say Hello to Our New Blog!

Hey, readers!

As you can see, the ModCloth Blog has a brand new look! When we started planning this redesign over the summer, we knew we wanted to make the blog easier for you to navigate, share, and interact with your fellow blog readers. We also wanted to introduce new editorial ideas that have been stewing in our heads for a while, and, we think, really speak to what the ModCloth lifestyle is about. Here are some features we’re excited about:

Tweets & Likes: Want to share a DIY project with your Facebook friends, or tweet about the latest Vintage Sexism? Now you can! At the top of each post, our Twitter and Facebook buttons make sharing posts as easy as one, two, click!

Comment Replying: Reply to comments, and get notified of when others reply to you!

The Categories Formerly Known As… Like our design, some of our categories needed to be updated as well! For the latest recipes from the ModCloth kitchen, head to Now You’re Cookin’, and for all you bookworms, bookmark our Shelf Life category! We also have awesome new categories to roll out, like…

Best Job Ever: If you’ve ever wondered what it would be like if we were career counselors instead of a fashion company, wonder no more. Every few weeks, we’ll interview deserving-of-attention women who are doing amazing, interesting things in their field. Our first profile? Mythbusters’ Kari Byron! Check out our interview with Kari, and then let us know what dream job you want to learn about next! Leave us questions, and we’ll find you the answers!

Style File: Not sure what to wear to your first day of work, or how to style a scarf four different ways? Style File is your destination for styling tips, specially created outfit sets from our ModStylists, and more!

Travel Bug: In our revamped Travel Bug series, we’re asking bloggers and other cool locals to show us around their hometowns! Who’s first? Find out Friday!

We hope you love the new ModCloth Blog as much as we do, and look forward to hearing your thoughts! Happy reading!

    This is awesome! So excited about the Kari interview, the recipes, and the book section!

    I like the ideas you guys are implementing but… the page is entirely messed up in Google Chrome. Floating centered text, nonaligned boxes, broken sidebar formatting, etc — sad things :(

      Sorry to hear it doesn’t look right! Our tech folks are looking into it now. In the meantime, though, have you had a chance to refresh the page? Sometimes the browser holds settings from earlier versions in your cache. It should appear correctly if you clear your cache!

  6. Savannah 09/03/2010 at 1:19 pm #

    I have the same problem as Elise.

      Oh no! Sorry to hear it doesn’t look right! Our tech team is looking into it, but in the meantime, have you had a chance to refresh the page? Sometimes the browser holds settings from earlier versions in your cache. It should appear correctly if you clear your cache. Thanks!

    @ Elise & Savannah - I had the same problem when I first looked at the new blog (in Chrome), but after reloading the page everything was fixed. In any case, the problem has been forwarded to our developers & they’re working on it!

    So I have to admit… when I got the e-mail that said “Have you heard…?,” I started singing ‘Surfin’ Bird,’ and that made me smile. Then I looked at this blog, and it made me smile, too.

    your clothing is adorable, and i appreciate your free and outgoing feel, however, where’s the fat chick stuff? are your clothes only limited to the tiny and “beautiful”? you should thing about expanding the clothes and i mean in a literal sense. especially since most americans are overweight and your clothing would be cute as hell on them. thanks for your time

    I think the new blog looks great. I am not quite sure how I stumbled upon your site, but I love it!

    HI MODCLOTH! so i really like your clothes. like a lot. but im kinda small. well, im really small. but no other store has the kind of clothes i wear. i’ve bought a lot of clothes with bust size about 14 and length 30 and it always comes out huge. i did get a dress called “the block island dress” and it fits good it’s just a little long. i was hoping maybe you could start making a little more range in your sizes. THANKS!
