Whether you’re a Jimmy Choo kind of girl or a Carhartt-sporting guy, there are lots of ways to look stylish on the streets of Maine. One new blog gives an inside look at street-level fashion trends in Maine’s largest city. Fore Front Fashion (www.forefrontfashion.com ) documents fashion as it happens: snapshots and short profiles of Portland’s stylish inhabitants — sometimes accompanied by their furry friends. More than doling out fashion advice and inspiration, though, this blog puts a face on Portland’s fashion-minded population while providing intriguing details and occasional tips for local shoppers. One scroll down through the blog, and you’ll realize Maine’s looking pretty good!
