BOTW: The Minneapoline

This Blog of the Week post is going to take you off the social media/PR beaten path a little bit. I’ve been feeling all-business this past week so I feel it’s time to talk about something a little more light-hearted.

If you’re a fan of fashion, photography, or Minneapolis culture, Ellen Dahl’s blog The Minneapoline combines all three and gets me all sorts of excited whenever she posts. I absolutely love this blog.

The Minneapoline gives a look at Twin Cities street fashion from a very organic perspective. People with a certain unique style are photographed by Ellen as they are going about their everyday lives. They aren’t models. Their clothes aren’t put together by a stylist. They are real people, doing real things, with real fashion sense. It’s simply fabulous. 

I would hardly call myself a fashionista. But I do love clothes…and shoes…and jewelry…and purses. The Minneapoline provides a glimpse at how different people in the Twin Cities interpret style and thus giving me lots of ideas whenever I hit the shops.

I couldn’t choose just one post to share, so here are a few of my favorites:

    I love that blog. I’m always jealous of those fashionable people who seem to pull off the “I’m not trying hard” look.

      Me too! Some of the looks are so off-the-wall…part of the reason I love that blog so much.
