FBFF: Location, Location, Location!


Katy Rose was influenced for this post idea after a recent trip to New York. She realized that she dressed differently when she lived there as opposed to when she lived in St. Louis. I agree with her that where we live has a lot to do with how we dress because I've lived in Los Angeles. I had a guest post about LA style versus New York's. I feel that living in New York has helped me dressed better.

1. What part of the world do you blog from?
I blog from Midtown East of Manhattan. Not exactly a fashionable neighborhood. However, I think New York is the one the most fashionable cities, if not the most.

2. If you had to describe the overall mode of dress for where you live what would you say? 
Well my neighborhood is by the UN so it's a lot of business suits and foreign accents. New York in general dresses sophisticated and trendy. Each neighborhood has their own "dress code." SoHo has the relaxed style. Lower East Side has more of a hipster flare.

3. Do you fit in with the status quo around you or do you break the mold? 
I love that New York is filled with people who break the mold. That's why Bill Cunningham shoots his street style photos here!

4. If you have lived or traveled to another part of the country/world did your clothing choices evolve? 
When I go back to visit my sister in California (like I am this weekend), I find myself slipping into a lazy style with jeans and flip flops. When we walk around the malls, I get so irked by the fashion choices of the girls out there: Ugg boots, Abercrombie tees, unkempt blonde hair. 

5. If you had to describe your style by naming a specific city, what would you be? 
I think I am definitely New York. I hated how lazy Californians were with their style. It wasn't until I moved to California that I saw people wearing jeans to dinner. I like that New Yorkers dress up to go out (not that I always do.) New York I feel has a great personal style then you'll see a mix of trends, which I think describes my style as well.

What city best describes your style?
