A Brief Blog Profile: Fashion Cents

by Thomas Hynes


Fashion Cents is run by Kim Taylor. She's a graduate of the Fashion Institute of Technology in New York, and now lives in Chicago where she's making over the city one person at a time. And if you're from Chicago you might recognize Kim from her the Chicago Sun-Times, Tribune, Red Eye, Red Streak, Chicago Social, Chicago Magazine, or any of the other many places her work has been featured.

As the pun in the name of this blog might suggest, Fashion Cents is about being stylish, but not necessarily about breaking the bank. Kim's mission is "to give the world a greater fashion sense." The idea is to for "people to stop believing that wearing designer logos and high-priced fashions are the only ways to achieve a great style." One feature on this blog supporting this goal is the "Shop Your Own Closet" series. The most recent post shows readers how to wear the same item in three very different ways.  But it's not just recycling old clothes into new looks. (Though that is a really smart thing to do!) There's also posts like this one identifying where readers can find 10 feather dresses for under $100

And I know it may seem like a woman-centric blog.  For instance, I'm not entirely sure what a feather dress is. But that's no excuse! Fashion Cents has a section called: Help Your Man. As you'll see, there's no reason anyone should be in the dark about the world of fashion. And as you'll also see, there's no reason why anyone should go broke in that pursuit.

News Widget

Our widget allows you to display PR Newswire content on your site with very little back-end programming required.  You not only get the headline, but also the body of text of the news release, keeping the user on your site at all times.  In order to do so, the difference between our Widget and other widgets is at the end of the sign-up process, you will be provided with two pieces of source code -- one for the page where the Widget itself will be displayed and one for the pages that will display the body of text of each news release.  In addition, the sign-up process allows you to have 100 percent control over every aspect of the Widget's appearance, so that the Widget can blend in fully with the look and feel of your site. Still not convinced? Here's what one blogger had to say about the widget.
