Boston-Based Blogs--The Last Entry in a (Short) Series

by Laura Collins of Pansy Maiden

In my forth and final installment of Boston-Based design/fashion/art blogs, I'm highlighting My Love For You Is A Stampede of Horses, and The Clothing Menu. I have tried to cover some of the more "indie gems" of Boston blogs but really, I barely even scratched the surface. I'd love to hear about some of the locally-based blogs you guys adore (such as The Well Appointed Catwalk--check it out!)

I guess that Meighan, the lovely lady behind My Love For You Is A Stampede of Horses, and I share a common aesthetic because 99% of the images she shares with her readers make my jaw drop and inspiration instantly fills me up from head to toe. No joke. Here's what Meighan's blog is all about:
My Love for an art blog curated by Meighan O'Toole. Cataloging low brow and contemporary art, featuring q&a's, studio visits and daily posts about artists from all over the world.

Kristen D'Amour concentrates on indie fashion designers from around the globe on her relatively new blog, The Clothing Menu. My Type A personality loves that she divides designers up into the following four categories: Timeless, Trendy, Causal, and Ecofriendly (yay!). And with articles like, "(500) Days of Zooey Deschanel" and "What to Wear to Music Festivals This Summer," this blog is right up my alley. From The Clothing Menu's "About" page:
there is more to style and shopping than what you find in the mall. there are so many independent clothing designers whose heart and passion are in creating clothes. they have a unique point of view in their designs and often times hand make the stylish clothes and accessories. the clothing menu is dedicated to bringing awareness to indie fashion designers and giving people an option outside of what is offered in the mall, while providing the latest in fashion trends and tips.
