Welcome to Blog Profiles! Each week, PR Newswire media relations manager Christine Cube selects an industry or subject and a handful of sites that do a good job with promoting and blogging about the space. Do you have a blog that deserves recognition? Tell Christine why on PR Newswire for Bloggers.
It’s Fashion Week in Paris.
New York’s Fashion Week wrapped a few weeks ago. I was fortunate to cover it several years ago, while freelancing for a DC-area publication.
So this week, I’ve got fashion fever and decided to revisit this awesome topic for blog profiles. In case you missed it, we previously covered some fashion blogs in February.
Here’s a new round of awesome sites.
Midwest Style Bloggers is a network that highlights individual fashion, lifestyle, fitness, and food bloggers in the Midwest, and it blogs about fashion trends.
The founders – Katelyn, Maya, Lauren, and Sam – are bloggers from the middle, specifically Iowa, Illinois, and Wisconsin.
The site boasts a membership of more than 300 Midwest bloggers.
“We are looking for all kinds of Midwest bloggers,” the site says. “We want to showcase posts, giveaways, contests, etc. from different bloggers each week Monday through Friday … We want the Midwest Bloggers blog to be your go to platform for Midwest blogging and events but we really just wanted to create a forum and community for the great work Midwest bloggers are creating.”
I love a blog that offers tips to readers, who in this case, are bloggers. The post Techie Tuesdays: The Great Debate – Blogger vs. WordPress presents some really interesting pro and con information. I also liked several of the site’s Friday Favorites Link Ups. Vols. 27 and 29 were a couple personal favorites.

Fashion Squad is a fashion blog by Carolina Engman.
This is a cool site. It features a great many categories, including beauty, Fashion Week, interior design, outfits, shopping, travel, and videos.
The gorgeous home of a Danish novelist features incredibly beautiful photos of the home of Annika von Holdt. This was a really clever post of Engman’s favorite shots from von Holdt’s Instagram feed.
“Emerson is a sartorial genius when it comes to outerwear,” Engman writes.

Anna Dello Russo is the blog of Milan-based Dello Russo, editor at large and creative consultant for Vogue Japan.
This blog has a fun personality. Passionate fashionista Dello Russo loves gold frames – they’re around every picture posted to her blog.
And while it might seem strange to look ahead to next spring and summer’s fashion picks, Paris currently is running with it. I especially liked Dello Russo’s post on #PFWSS15: Christian Dior (Incidentally, #PFWSS15 = Paris Fashion Week Spring/Summer 2015. Yes, I had to look this up.)
Dello Russo also has a huge Twitter following with more than 166,000 followers. Follow @annadellorusso on Twitter.
TheGlamourai is the webzine of New York-based stylist Kelly Framel.
Framel describes herself as a “lover of ball gowns, paper crowns, harem pants, red beans + rice, and whiskey on the rocks.” She considers YouTube as modern art, and vintage a “poignant reminder of how much we have lost.”
The site features posts about fashion (editorial, outfit inspiration, studio visits, muses, beauty, and shopping), living (entertaining, home décor, and DIY), and travel.

Sea of Shoes is the blog of Jane Aldridge, whose mission is to “take pictures of pretty clothes, collect amazing vintage.”
This is an incredibly cool site – Aldridge’s eye for beauty is pretty spot on.
