I just stumbled upon these pictures of people in a shopping center here in Kansas City, Missouri, so I thought I'd resurrect this thread. As you can see, everyone is just pretty boring. No one dresses with much personality...

I'm late but for the record, check Gabriela's vintage on 1404 and West Lake, as well as Via's which was mentioned.

For some reason after viewing Napoleon Dynamite, my impression of midwest style, not as in the urban centers but like real heartland midwest is that people dress like that...it's not really fashionable but it seems quite charming, almost Marc Jacobs like (some of the S/S 05 MJ ads I've seen in magazines seems to have this "heartland of America" style that I'm talking about).

This may sound weird, but growing up in the Midwest, I think there's fashion conscious people it's jsut the selection is soooo limited unless you get on the net, which a lot of people are hesitant to do (you know the whole I'm not positive it will fit thing). I kind of like it some days becuase it drives a lot of us (myself included) to find a way to create style or re-create runway looks. I'll go shopping for a whole day to find the perfect trench coat or whatever I want at the moment (right now it's a full skirt that won't make my short body look dumpy). I like the hunt and the knowledge that I've HAD to develop a way to look good without a Armani around the corner, although some days it woudl be great to live in NY and have fashion on every corner.

Midwesterners deserve more attention.

Since I don't particularly live out in the open, it's hard for me to take good pictures. Unless it were of myself. But I think there are plenty of well dressed people in the cities. Boring, but, my kind of boring.
