PR Couture for the Non-Couture

Let me preface this post by saying I am not a fashion junkie.  I am the farthest thing from a fashion junkie.  If I could, I would live my entire life in a skinny jeans and a band tee.  But just because I don’t like fashion doesn’t mean I cant like the fashion centric blog PR Couture.

PR Couture’s founding blogger, Crosby, is a fashion Brand Strategist, PR Professional, and e-Marketing specialist blogs about everything from fashion podcasts to how to host media dinners.  Crosby places a heavy emphasis on professional social media presence with tips for professionals and casual users alike.  She even has an online social media course readers can participate in!

Crosby’s background in brand management and PR really shine through in her weekly fashion media review posts.  She can really tell what makes a poor ad versus what makes a great ad just by evaluating the message its sending.   Her posts take on a very “how to” vibe which can be very helpful to newcomers in the industry.  Her writing style is definitely engaging and fun to read while still being professional.

Something definitely unique about PR Couture is that it hosts job listings and professional development tools for virtually every trendy PR and Marketing job every!

One of my favorite of Crosby’s post is I’ve Graduated With My PR Degree, Now What? As a student pursuing a degree in Marketing and PR, this post really shed some light on what opportunities and exciting adventures lie ahead of me after I graduate.

The only thing I don’t like about Crosby’s blog is that it is sometimes too fashion heavy for me.  Again, Id be totally fine living my life in jeans and band tees with the occasional nice outfit sprinkled in.  Crosby blogs about all the high end brands I could only dream of affording.  Its almost to a point where the entire post becomes un-relatable!

Overall, I really do think PR Couture does a great job of blending together the worlds of fashion blogging and PR blogging into a wonderful smoothie of trendy-ness.  I’ll definitely be bookmarking this one!
