33 avenue Miquelon (formerly Midnight in a Perfect World) is an independent fashion blog written by Cameron Miquelon, and is based out of Louisville, Kentucky. The blog began life originally on Tumblr as a typical Tumblr with various content ranging from odd photos to NSFW reposts, as well as enough fashion-related content to end up on a Twitter list curated by The Coveted (of Independent Fashion Bloggers fame) featuring new fashion bloggers. This led Miquelon to relocate her blog (and the URL, which had been obtained before entered into said list) to a self-hosted WordPress account, followed by acquiring a new theme suitable to her design desires.
The blog has numerous features, each one exploring a particular subject and its connection to fashion/style, however subtle:
- Music Monday (music)
- My Old Kentucky Home (Louisville- and Kentucky-related posts)
- Follow Friday (interviews with fashion bloggers)
- Outside the Box (interviews with those outside of fashion)
- Business Week (interviews with those who work in fashion; annual series)
Originally the blog was named after the song "Midnight in a Perfect World"  from DJ Shadow's 1996 album Endtroducing..... The current name, modelled in the format of a French street address, is derived from the international dialing code for France (33) while Miquelon is a reference to Saint-Pierre et Miquelon , the only part of France located in North America, just south of Newfoundland in Canada; there is no known avenue in France with that name that the author is aware of.
Bilingualism (2010 - 2011)
33 avenue Miquelon was written mostly in English with occasion nods to French, Miquelon's adopted second language. French was most prevalent in the titles of her features, as well as the occasional bilingual post. This practice was abandoned in early October 2011 when Miquelon radically changed the appearance of her blog.
Entries posted to Miquelon's blog are usually posted at midnight Eastern Time in the United States, which more or less has to do with the fact that she is six hours behind Paris and everyone else on Central European Time, and five hours behind London and everyone on Greenwich Mean Time. This is in order for those across the Atlantic to have something to read in the morning, especially the French who are able to read English.
About the Author
Born in Louisville, Kentucky but raised in Kansas for most of her life, then relocating to Tacoma, Washington before returning to Louisville in late 2007, Miquelon stumbled upon the fashion world when one of the city's two alt-weekly papers had a short article on Garance Doré. Miquelon, who is also a Francophile due to her love of French Pop singer Alizée, began reading Doré's blog, and over time — coinciding with the resolution of her gender identity — found herself blogging all that she knew about it.
