I have a phobia of super-girly fashion blogs—you know, the ones with too many OMGs and coverage of Marc Jacobs printed tops—so it's no surprise that 95 percent of the blogs I read are written by guys. That other 5 percent are by women who are, simply put, the cream of the crop. I admire these four ladies greatly and strongly recommend their blogs to even the most dude-ly of readers.
[QC] Quite Continental
Mariah Kunkel has an unparalleled eye for what can be best described as classy nostalgia: If Miles Davis, Life magazine, and Katharine Hepburn had a love child, it would be Mariah's blog.

[NS] N'East Style
N'East Style is inspired by the authentic, no-frills northeastern aesthetic. It's a refreshingly unpretentious read, and the writer, Christine Mitchell, has a knack for spotting new independent brands. Christine is also an artist, and her sketch series alone is a reason to follow this blog.

[HH] Hollister Hovey
Hollister's blog is a wonderfully curated window into a culture lover's New York. Among her posts, you'll find a photo tour of the Rugby store, recipes for plum cocktails, and news about exhibits at institutions like the Freer Gallery of Art in Washington, D.C.

I don't know the real name of the lady behind this one, but her blog has convinced me she must be one of the most clever, well-read, and cultured people around. Her site's a frequently updated source of writing, photography, and music.
