^ If you're from New York, and have good style... PLEASE bring it here!

I'm still not sold on LA fashion. It's just not my thing. Bleh.

Here's my friend's LA style blog, though - you'll get lots of ideas from her photos.. she has a serious passion for fashion: http://lainspiration.com/

yeah, los angeles has really horrible fashion. trust me, everyone will love it if you change anything around there.

and when you get here, you'll understand why. and it's not to say some stuff doesn't come out of here, because you can find cute pieces, but nobody wears them.

to me, this is what L.A. style is all about let's face it, L.A. isn't the capital of fashion, it'd never has and never will. i see a lot of copycats. too trendy. not original.

^ Hah, I don't get the muffin tops thing, but...

It depends on what part of LA you are. I agree, overall... LA style is NOT my cup of tea... many fashion victims out here. But trust, especially in the more affluent areas, there are women that dress well and have style.

I don't think the Ugg trend holds true anymore. They were really popular about 5 years ago, but now for every girl wearing Uggs, I see 10 wearing ankle or slouchy boots. I never see anyone wearing Hollister either. I think it is marketed more towards people who want to visit SoCal rather than the people that actually live here.

Silverlake:


It's all pretty much vintage," Janet Schultz, 26 of Los Feliz, says of her wardrobe.
"I always show at least one pop of bright color."



"I like old lady glamour," says Simon Haas, 25, of downtown L.A.


Emily Ateninson, 19, of Los Angeles, says she's a "bohemian mess. [A] free bird."



I literally rolled out of bed. [My style is] punk rock?" says Diana Taylor, 22, from Maui but living in Silver Lake.


Jaclyn Jonet, 25, of Hollywood goes for "comfort and sex appeal."
How does she define sex appeal? "Be yourself, that will be the ultimate sexiness."


Laura Houghton, 24, from Oregon, but living in Riverside, goes for "next-door vintage.
Grandma and Grandpa chic. I like anything that's bright and cheesy."

She's hugged by Becca Flaiz, 26, who says, "Honestly, I love
bustles and Victorian styles -- [my look is] modern Victorian."


Misha Boskovski, 25, from Venice, has eclectic taste that includes "Ukrainian gypsy fairy attire; acid-freak fashion."


Jamal Dawda's "lazy chic" style makes the 26-year-old Silver Laker have "
a hodgepodge" wardrobe. Meanwhile, 25-year-old Teresa Gay's two style adjectives are "comfy and hip."


"Most of my outfit is from Santee Alley," 27-year-old Jacqueline
Nguyen of Silver Lake says of her "eclectic-modern" wardrobe. "There
should be no rules in fashion."


Angeleno Peter Hooks, 21, sports an "urban functionality" style.


Bree Bonneau, 22, of Silver Lake, says her look is "comfortable, black, mysterious."


Rebekah Parr, 34, of Silver Lake, describes her style with one word, "Love."


"My style is whatever my roommate gives me to wear," says Annie Hardy, 28, from the band Giant Drag.
"I'm not used to being awake this early."

Larchmont Village


Drake Rutter's fashion creed? "Live free, roll forever." The Koreatown
resident is wearing Converse high-tops and riding a Shogun bike that
was made in Taiwan.


My style is a mixture of modern and retro," says Brandi Magee of
Larchmont Village. "I come from an era around the 50s. It's something
I feel inside and it manifests itself in my style."


Ischel Everett, 20, of Hollywood on her style: "Very chill, very comfortable. Anything without labels."


"I wear music on my sleeve," says Hengi Petersen, 27, of Hollywood.


Dory Melyon, 26, of Hancock Park likes to dress "kind of streetwear
meets couture. [i] try and mix it all up." He's wearing Supra high-tops,
Marc Jacobs jeans, a Louis Vuitton belt, an American Apparel shirt and
a jacket from the Hundreds.


"I wake up and put stuff on," says Jade Ikazoboh, 25, of the Valley.

"I just wear what I wear," says Ekene Ijeoma of Brooklyn, N.Y. His scarf is from Italy.


Marisa Guzman, 25, of Silver Lake says her look is "sleek. I like to wear lots of gold."


"My style is all black everything. Cool, trendy, super chill," says Ariel Shapiro, 20, of Hollywood. "Love my vintage fringe leather jacket and my cutoff
shorts and tights."

"I'm obsessed with my Sam Edelman boots," says Cass Baker, 23, of
Burbank. She likes to look "low-key but a little edgy, boyish but cute."


Kristine Louise of West Adams likes to dress "independent, outside the box.
I love root beer brown." It's obvious that Louise loves that color -- she
also has a "root beer Chevy, hair, lipstick and belt."

Wow, with the exception of maybe 3 of those outfits posted above on this page, all of them are hideous and make no sense.

Aw, I love Brandi Magee's outfit in Larchmont Village... I actually am a big fan of that area... did a recent blog post on there, too. My fiance and I visit weekly... and the style I see there is way more refined than what you see in Silver Lake or like areas.

One thing I could stand to see more of in LA - lovely dresses. I'm so SICK of skinny jeans!
