Fan Fare: Darling Outfit Illustrations by ModLover Emma

We recently received a lovely bit of fan mail from high school student Emma Steinkellner, who sent us these cute illustrations of ModCloth outfits! When we asked her what inspired her, she said, “To put it concisely – I love ModCloth. On my list of favorites, it ranks just above buttered toast. I was practicing some sketching and decided to costume these ladies in some of my ModCloth-y favorites.” We’re so flattered! Thank you, Emma!
