About the "staring situation",isn't only a french thing ,i think it's a "latino thing" in general and it's awful; it's not very nice having someone looking at you from head to toe if it makes sense...i don't care if it is for good or bad reason, just don't like , i have to admit i used to do it a lot when i was younger and back in home in Buenos Aires but since i've been living here (in England) i kind of stopped cos i realised it does make people uncorfortable and because i don't like it when they do it to me, here, you can have a monkey on top of your head that people won't look at u, the only ones that will, will be spanish, french, italian,argentinian, well basically every latino i think

T-shirts from $50 to $150 (argentinian pesos)
Jeans $250
Jumpers $190
Nor sure about dresses and coats, but it's from i remember last year when i went home.
A bit overpriced, but in Argentina it's worth it cos some of it's designs are original (there) and you know there won't be many people wearing them

How long have you been in England?

It's certainly different, people are so much more reserved. You keep your eyes and hands to yourself. Personal space is measured in acres too.

I was thinking of going to Buenos Aries this summer, i'm glad to see people are so fashionable out there

I've decided it's probably too expensive this year, and i'll have to stick with going to Thailand/Vietnam like every other student! ha.

Everthing in general just costs more there, and i'm not sure what I could really do for 7 weeks or so in just Buenos Aires without knowing any of the locals. But anyway, I won't take this thread off topic

i think this is the reason why there is a basic style going on forever and will never stop, sadly. you have to have a lot of guts and good mood to go out dressing what you want if it differs from the basics
Yep! my bf dresses nerdy/hipster (skinny jeans, vintage glasses, stache, etc etc) and he got major stares when we were visiting this past winter

i guess there are a lot of cultures in here, we also are in a terribly broken country and the fashion culture it is not what it should, not everyone has the head clean in order to buy a fashion mag, not even to have a good taste in clothes...
on the streets u see boring people, or BAD very bad dressed, and a lot of the ones who can really afford good/or expensive clothing, well, they are laveled and look the same...

i see there are some people who even try so harddd to coppy cat the cobra snake, etc etc etc culture and dressing... that they really look ridiculous, i guess there's a lot of people with great innate sense of fashion, and if u're really well dressed no=ones stares, i dont want to contradict you Boluda, but i guess that you can pull a superman tshirt with red lipstic in the city, but with the right accesories, not going out like pińoń=fijo...

I have to agree with you on these 2 things you said , that's so true, especially the teenagers....
I disagree when u say that if you dress well no one will stare at u , imo no matter if you are dressed well ,bad or u r wearing something "unusual" for the argentinian public eye they still stare at you,the only way no one will is if you dress as everyone else, labeled as you said...

Please don't take this the wrong way, but I heard Argentinian girls were usually very stunning and very vain. I imagined fashion would come into this too. I kind of predicted BA to be like the pictures shown in this thread, obviously they're selected photo's, but still.

I noticed that most people featured here work/study on something art/fashion related, only one girl is a kindergarten teacher. Lots of knit and hippie clothes on people who study fashion. Very few people wearing chic parisian style.
Overall I don´t relate nor like any of these clothes, perhaps one or two pieces but not the way they´re styled... at least there are no floggers lol
